Illinois High School Told Students to Disrespect the Flag. What Happened Next Was Totally Obvious

By

Why are people like this in charge of educating our children? That’s the real scandal.

The administration of York Community High School in Elmhurst, IL should have had the toddler-level intuition required to realize this stunt would backfire in spectacular fashion.

Then again, liberals for some reason think everyone else is totally onboard with their antics, no matter how outlandish.

They’ve gone and fooled themselves into thinking everyone else sees the world like they do.

Well, the staff of this particular high school got a rude wake-up call.

From Breitbart:

An American flag display set up by staff at an Illinois high school stirred up controversy on social media.

The display at York Community High School in Elmhurst, IL was a re-creation of artist Dread Scott’s “What is the Proper Way to Display a U.S. Flag?” from 1989 and was intended “to explore the complexities of the constitutionally protected right of free speech by examining real cases,” Principal Erin DeLuga said in a message to parents on the school’s Facebook page.

The attempt at a lesson on the First Amendment backfired.

Parents and students complained the display was in poor taste, some calling it “disrespectful” and a “disgrace” on the school’s Facebook page.

DeLuga also wrote, “Our staff and students will learn from this week’s lesson, and we will make changes to this forum in the future to ensure we do not disrespect our flag.”
