You may recall that three years ago Michelle Obama was caught on video mouthing the words, “All this for a damn flag,” at a World Trade Towers ceremony where the United States flag was being honored.
Michelle Obama disdains the country which has given her so much.
Whenever she speaks on an issue, whether it’s on public school lunches or Hostess Cupcakes or flag ceremonies, you can be sure there will be minions ready to enact her intrusive and unpatriotic propositions.
So it’s not a stretch to think her deplorable slur against the flag ended up influencing an outcome where American public school children can’t wear the United States’ symbol of freedom. The First Amendment right of free speech is disintegrating.
Recently, the U.S. Supreme Court “has refused to hear a case in which California public school students were prohibited from wearing American flag t-shirts to school, allegedly out of a fear that it might be disruptive.”

In refusing to hear the appeal without giving any reason for the decision, the Supreme Court lets stand a lower court ruling that upheld the ban out a concern for school safety. The Rutherford Institute had asked the Supreme Court to hear the case of Dariano v. Morgan Hill, in which several students were ordered by school officials to cover up their American flag t-shirts on May 5, 2010, allegedly because officials feared that it might offend other students who were celebrating the Mexican holiday Cinco de Mayo.
“When public school students can’t wear an American flag on a t-shirt because it might be disruptive, then free speech as we’ve known it is dead,” said John W. Whitehead, president of The Rutherford Institute and author of A Government of Wolves: The Emerging American Police State. “If the Supreme Court continues down the road to political correctness, then eventually anything we say will be treated as threatening as a loaded gun and deemed just as dangerous.”….
