California College Professors Petition To Have American Flag Banned From Campus
A bizarre petition currently in circulation has apparently garnered the support of a few University Of California professors….even though the petition’s purpose is to ban the American flag from campus because it “represents racism.”

A group of university professors has signed a letter showing their solidarity with students who tried to ban the American flag at the University of California, Irvine – because they said Old Glory contributes to racism.
“U.S. nationalism often contributes to racism and xenophobia, and that the paraphernalia of nationalism is in fact often used to intimidate,” read a letter obtained by the website Campus Reform.
Hundreds across the nation have signed the letter – including some U.C. Irvine professors, Campus Reform reported.
“We admire the courage of the resolution’s supporters amid this environment of political immaturity and threat, and support them unequivocally” the letter stated.
On March 3 the U.C. Irvine student government association voted 6-4-2 to remove Old Glory from a campus lobby for the sake of cultural inclusivity. The un-American knuckleheads blathered on about how “the American flag has been flown in instances of colonialism and imperialism.”
Breitbart quoted an unnamed student who said the student government association feared the flag might hurt the feelings of illegal aliens.
“There were people who were like, ‘the flag triggers me’ – that was their exact wording, too,” the student said.
Over the weekend, the executive leadership of student government met and vetoed the legislation and by Monday the flag was once again posted in the campus lobby.
“Our campus is patriotic and proud,” student government President Reza Zomorrodian told me. “We did something right for our campus.”
Sounds like these students and professors tried to take the whole “freedom of speech” concept all the way to the left! SMH. What do you think about their petition?
