High school students in Woodruff, South Carolina, were forced to remove US flags on Sept. 11. Several upset parents say Woodruff High School made the students remove American flags from their vehicles on this day. Spartanburg District 4 Superintendent Rallie Liston said four students arrived at the school Thursday morning with U.S. flags propped up on poles in their pickup truck beds. The school’s principal, Aaron Fulmer, confiscated the flags because he said it is against district policy to “draw attention” to one’s vehicle. The flags were returned to the students at the end of the day. The students were not punished. Fulmer said that officials are meeting with the student council next week to look into a possible policy revision.
Parents are planning a protest that is being planned in response to the flag removal. It is set for Monday morning. A post on Facebook reads: Please come out Monday morning and stand up for our students rights and our rights! 7:50 a.m. Sidewalk in front of high school. Bring an American flag with you. It just amazes me how hard these school officials work to be “politically correct.” A better word is “political cowards.”
These attacks on our freedom and rights are becoming more frequent and pervasive. We must stand up to these “guests” who are in this country and are trying to deprive the rest of us from our liberties. This song should be played in every school in this country every morning to remind the people of what our dead and maimed returning soldiers fought and gave their lives for – and then for someone to take away your flag! The people all over the country should also join Woodruff for this protest. Enough is enough! The people in America need to get their priorities straight.
