    Some may disagree, but I think this little boy deserves some support from some other US citizens in his stand. He doesn't sound like a trouble maker who is trying to cause a rucus. I admire his respect for our country and the people that have served.

    YouTube - Liberals Force 13 year old Kid to remove American Flag from bike

    California school boy ordered to remove U.S. flag from bike - Spokane conservative | Examiner.com

    That's California for you... but c'mon.


    I don't know how to show that support other than leaving a respectful message on the school's phone, voicing a concern. (209) 632-2510 if you care to. :thumbup:


    Btw--my apologies if anyone posted anything on this, didn't see anything.

    I for one do not see anything wrong with the boy flying the flag on his bike. I did not see one thing in that story to make me think he was doing it in any way to cause conflict or any other malicious reason. He just seemed like a kid who wanted to honor his grandfather. He wasn't some racist using the flag as an insult to non-citizens and should not be treated as such.

    PS: How do we know the school superintendent or principal are liberals?

    PPS: It was nice to see him fold the flag with such care.

    I bet if it was a Mexican flag nobody would have said anything to him.

    This reminds me of when they wanted to suspend kids for wearing american flag shirts and the like on cinco de mayo because it might offend the hispanics. That is ridiculous. I think someone should hand these teachers a map and ask them to point out where they are. IT'S AMERICA PEOPLE! If they are against it and want to oppress those who are for America, I say we try them for treason!

    The other day the school backed down because of the barrage of complaints from local residents and people from around the US and allowed the kid to keep the flag on his bike. He got an escort to school from the Patriot Guard. :thumbup:

    Who in the **** is complaining about this?

    What "racial tensions" is his patriotism causing?

    Some people in this country have REALLY lost their way.

    It's not difficult to notice for example that I'm the only one on my street who flies the flag at my house. I guess it's a good thing I don't live in CA, lest I be considered racist.

    any of the school officials who supported or implemented this action should be arrested by federal authorities, charged with treason, given a fair trial, then promptly executed...maybe have them in a televised steel cage match with janet reno......along with anyone who disagrees with this opinion...when school officials order subjugation of the Flag it's time to clean house

    There would be some major tensions for those people where I live. Any holiday the city lines the streets with flag poles. 4th of July the put flags out everyehere. City puts them in people yards.

    My little island I live on has a lot of good ol' USA flags.

    Yes it is pretty awesome. :thumbup: I love this! Here are some Americans I am proud of.
    YouTube - Hundreds ride with boy to show support for his U.S.-flag-decorated bike after school banned it

    They had people calling from across the world as far as Afghanistan. There over 500 motorcycles, and an unknown number of Tea Party members, that escorted him. :)
