Don’t They Know Yesterday was Veteran’s Day???

 

Cody Alicea, Future Speaker of the House of Representatives, R-CA

 

Apparently NOT at Denair Middle School, in California.  But I just bet they know (and diversively celebrate) Cinqo de Mayo.

Cody Alicea HAD an American flag on the back of his bike that he rode to school.  Thirteen year old Cody did this TO HONOR THE VETERANS IN HIS FAMILY AND HIS COUNTRY…so what was the reaction of the Denair School Administration to this Norman Rockwellesque vision of their young student?

Take the flag down!  The American Flag is ‘upsetting’ to some member of the Denair Middle School populace.  Illegals?  Union reps?  Local organizers for the Barbara Boxer Campaign?  Someone actually complained about Old Glory being displayed in their US School Building.

Now, wouldn’t it be just fascinating to find out how much FEDERAL FUNDING this school, its District, and residents receive.  I would hazard to believe that Federally funded breakfasts, lunches, and possibly dinners are served there.  I would also quite safely guess that all sorts of Fed cash cows are milked for energy costs; books; teachers’ salary and training; medical aid…oh the list is endless.  Yet somehow none of the largesse is ‘offensive.’

But a patriotic thirteen year old is.

Unfold that flag, and ride on Cody…there are still millions who have your back and your bike on our radar!

    I saw this story earlier this morning and just about went nuts! You’re so right-on about the myopic view of these school administrators.

    Thanks for the link-back to my blog!

    Hey Mary! I finally found you 🙂 I got here via Alabama Buzz who also left a nice note for me.

    Anyway, this is an absolute outrage when the flag of the United States of America cannot be flown in our own land! This is disgusting, and I hope that his parents get in touch with a conservative attorney group like Pacific Legal and do something about this. Unless we push back, we’ll soon find that the only flags allowed in this country are foreign ones. Or our own when unhinged lefties decide to set one on fire.

    Good post! We need to get you a high-res image of Glinda the good witch. That way you can wave that blinged out wand a little higher.

    Hey there. Motus sent me. I, too, was utterly amazed at this story. What is happening to our country?

    Arrived here via a link from MOTUS. Almost wish I hadn’t made the trip. This is beyond depressing.

    But nice blog, mary. Carry on.
