U. California Students Remove Offensive American Flag From ‘Inclusive’ Space!

flag 2The Associated Students of University of California, Irvine (ASUCI) voted Tuesday to remove all flags, including American flags, from an inclusive space on campus because of their offensive nature.

The bill, R50-70, was authored by Social Ecology Representative Matthew Guevara, and accuses all flags, especially, the American flag, of being “symbols of patriotism or weapons for nationalism.”

“[F]lags construct paradigms of conformity and sets [sic] homogenized standards for others to obtain which in this country typically are idolized as freedom, equality, and democracY.”   

“[F]lags construct paradigms of conformity and sets [sic] homogenized standards for others to obtain which in this country typically are idolized as freedom, equality, and democracy,” the bill reads.

The legislation argues that flags may be interpreted differently; the American flag, for example, can represent “American exceptionalism and superiority,” as well as oppression.

SERIOUSLY?
I’m certain use of English language as a standard, as well a mention of the Judeo-Christian foundations of this Constitutional Republic are also banned.  And mention of the Constitution and the Republic, as well!
I’ll keep saying it – POLITICAL CORRECTNESS WILL BE THE PROXIMATE DOWNFALL OF THIS NATION!
(If I were mobile, and had the means, I’d be hanging around the campus with as many American Flags as possible.  Equating The American Standard with those of other nations or ideologies on this nation’s soil and institutions, is ludicrous!)

The Star-Spangled Banner will once again wave at the University of California, Irvine, after student government leaders nixed a bid to ban the American flag from a campus lobby.

Members of the executive cabinet of the Associated Students of UC Irvine met Saturday in an emergency session to reverse the flag ban.

  1. The ban has now been overturned, by the student executive council.

    “We see the flag as transcending policy and politics, it represents American values,” Reza Zomorrodian, council president and head of the executive cabinet, said after the veto, according to the Orange County Register (http://bit.ly/1EV1kJD).

    So, something stupid was done, and then it was undone.
    That’s life with college students. 🙂

  4. I wish it were possible to remove every privilege, every benefit that flag has bought from those who hate it.

  5. Since Matthew ‘Che’ Guevara* hates this country and our flag, he should receive not one penny of .gov money or student loans.

    *That’s great. One commie rat following in the footsteps of another commie rat.
