California Teacher Says Drawing American Flag is “Offensive”

That's been the left's game plan all along, turn our children into left wing drones.

Now from Santa Rita School district near Salinas, a teacher has told a 13-year-old student at Gavilan Middle School not to draw American flags in class because it is “offensive.”

A student who drew pictures of Barack Obama with red/white/blue colors was praised.

There is nothing wrong with drawing an American flag, but in all fairness, we are not reviewing the entire story. Timing is the real issue here. Students, who have never worn a flag on Independence Day decided to wear one on the day that Mexican Americans celebrated their heritage – Cinco de Mayo. Why did they suddenly decide on this particular day to show their patriotism? It is reasonable to believe that these students used our flag as a tool to protest a minority celebrating their heritage. It would be like me wearing an American and going to an Irish bar on St. Patrick Day in protest of the St. Patrick Day celebration. I seriously doubt that I could get my fan*y out of that bar in one piece. The school reacted quickly to defuse the situation and tensions were high. On this day, as well, Terrin Hathaway decided to draw the American flag in her classroom. Did she suddenly feel an urge to be patriotic? Or did she decide to defy and protest the school’s decision regarding flag wearing by drawing the flag. The student had to have known that in an art class, whatever you draw; it is visible to the entire class. I personally believe that people have the right to celebrate their heritage in peace without being frowned upon as if what you are doing is a threat to our country. I love the diversity of this country. I like being able to go to an Italian festival, a Greek festival, Irish festival… the more the merrier.
