Big oof! A teenager at Kennebunk High School was allegedly suspended for referring to the school’s LGBT altered American flag as a “disgrace.”
The student, 17, reportedly walked into the school and called the flag a disgrace October 25, which is “Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Day.”
His stepfather, Sean White, told 13 WGME, “He walked, not through the main entrance, but through the side entrance, and expressed loudly ‘That flag is a disgrace.'”
White added, “He didn’t threaten anyone, he didn’t swear at anyone, destroy property he just stated that he was offended by a disgraceful flag, the alteration of our American flag.”
The teenager was set to serve a one-day suspension. However, his parents went up to the school to speak with the staff and got the suspension overturned. Then, they were offered an apology for infringing on his right to free speech.
“They’re telling him that he has a right to free speech, but he may have offended someone, so in that case they have to punish him to relegate the fact that they’ve done something,” White explained. “Their stance is that had someone heard him, a student, a foreign person, a transgender, he may have offended someone which he hadn’t, he was heard by someone off camera.”
“They had to go to video camera to even know that my son was the one who said it,” he added, “For him to care about what he cares about his patriotism, the flag, it’s good, it’s what we’re missing in America.
“Please don’t take this as an anti-gay or an anti-immigrant or anything other than what it really is, in which is protecting our rights as Americans to speak our mind in a non-threatening, positive manner,” White concluded.
National File reports:
According to CBS13, the principle confirmed that the case had been closed.
Alterations to the flag are not illegal and are sometimes common for similarly themed events.
In Canada, a 17-year-old student was recently suspended for plastering a poster and refusing to wear an altered Remembrance Sunday poppy containing the LGBT rainbow flag, suggesting it was disrespectful to the dead.
The school allegedly confiscated the girl’s phone–after she had recorded her conversation with administrators over her suspension–and had been ordered to keep silent over the decision.
Sounds to me like his parents are raising him right!

Elizabeth Warren Calls for Round 2 of Impeachments, This Time It's Different
We've finally ended the witch hunt against Donald Trump as far as the impeachment trial in the Senate goes, but there are still some members of Congress who are ready to get things started up again right away.
It was clear from Day 1 that we all knew how the impeachment charade was going to end. We knew that the Senate would easily acquit President Trump because the Democrats did such a poor job at making up their "evidence" against the President. Continue reading...
Female Lawmaker Introduces Bill to Force Vasectomies at Age 50 or After Third Child
For the last few years, all I have seen I seen is "#MeToo" and "my body, my choice." Women have marched and preached that men should not be able to make laws regarding women's bodies because they do not have a uterus.
For one, that is grossly wrong. A person does not have to have a uterus to know that abortion is murder and murder is wrong. For women to march for the "right" to murder their unborn children is beyond me. Continue reading…
New Bill Would Ban Male Students from Competing in Women's Sports
A new Tennessee bill would require that students playing sports would have to play with the team that matches the gender identification that they were assigned at birth. Of course the bill is being called "demeaning" by activists.
I think it's only fair that athletes compete against other athletes of the same biological sex! Males play males and females play females. Continue reading...
