UC Irvine Student Leaders Veto Ban on American Flag | NBC Southern California
...-_- jesus christ these students need to get OVER themselves, and get off their moral superior high horses. Trying to promote a more inclusive environment? Fucking. Bullshit. Even if they genuinely think that's what they're trying to do, it doesn't make it any better. This has got to be one of the dumbest things I've all year so far. Banning the showing of the flag? Granted, I think the amount of flag waiving and patriotism associated with it is way over the top in the US, in particular compared to other countries. Nevertheless, banning the showing of it is strong enough for me to utter words I thought I'd never say; anti-american. Plain and simple. They said:UC Irvine student leaders on Saturday vetoed a resolution that banned the American flag from being displayed in the lobby of the student government offices, according to a post on the school’s website. The post said the “misguided legislation” passed by undergraduate members of the legislative council earlier this week was not endorsed by campus leadership or by the University of California.
FLAMING BULLSHIT.Students voted to ban the American flag because it is a symbol of "colonialism and imperialism."
Luckily there were enough sensible people present to undo this. What I am most amazed at is that this actually passed in the first place. It's also another reason to add to the list of reasons while I will never, ever, live in California.
