Has our country been taken over so fully by the left that now displaying our nation’s colors is now deemed “offensive?” When a young Patriot is BANNED from his own school’s games for carrying a flag, but an NFL player is allowed to insult that very same flag in the name of “freedom of speech” we have serious issues.
We are the Land Of The Free, NOT the Land Of The Weak and Hypocritical! This is NOT acceptable and our silence is disgusting!!! Student Hunter Ballew deserves amazing praise for his dedication to fight this infringement of his rights, after he was banned from the football game after trying to carry in a flag. He took to Facebook to speak about the disturbing incident:
Lou Lavely, Travelers Rest High School Principal, continues to power trip and strip young Americans of the right to proudly boast this Nation’s flag. Last night I picked my brother up from the TRHS Football game and he told me that Lavely had denied entry to a couple of young men with American flags. I can’t deny the rage I felt as this is the third incident I’ve had involving Lavely and the flag I love. First, the day after Osama was killed in 2011 we were told we couldn’t have the American flag on our trucks on school property and the TRPD came and handled the situation. Lavely later apologized to our group. Second, I was picking up my youngest brother and saw two high school boys handling our flag with disrespect at the flag pole as they let it drag the ground and he acted like it was not an issue. Third, last night as I took the flag and attempted to enter myself he stated, “I have the authority to tell anyone they can’t bring it on the property.” Unfortunately the cops were not helpful and sided with Lavely even after stating “you’d probably win if you took it to the school district.” I’m no expert and don’t know the laws in and out. But.. if he has the power to strip Americans the right to boast the American flag after being pumped up about our Olympic run there is a much bigger problem. A problem that needs to be resolved. I’m sick of this political correctness. We need to do something about it because it’s not getting any better.
Let’s do what we do and show this young man some support in his fight. Find Hunter here…. https://www.facebook.com/hunter.ballew.9
