BREAKING!!! AS OF 5PM EASTERN TODAY, 1/10.13…THIS “TEACHER” HAS OFFICIALLY BEEN…FIRED!!!
According to Michael Copeland’s daughter who was in the Lexington – Richland South Carolina School District classroom when it happened…
“He drew a couple of symbols, like one of them was a cross, and he said, ‘What does this represent’ and everybody said ‘Christianity. Then he proceeds to take down the American flag and said, ‘This is a symbol, but it’s only a piece of cloth. It doesn’t mean anything,’ and then he throws it down on the floor and then stomps on it, repeatedly.”
The girl was talking about her English teacher at Chapin High School.
The teacher, as part of some lesson he was giving his students…
Took down the American Flag, told his students it was a symbol but only a piece of cloth, that it meant nothing…And STOMPED on it…REPEATEDLY.
The United States Supreme Court says the right exists, under the 1st Amendment, to free speech and freedom of expression including desecration of the American Flag.
That doesn’t make it right.
To say the American Flag means nothing, is wrong.
On that floor and under his shoe was every soldier who has ever worn the uniform of the United States of America.
Those who came home and those who never did.
Every body beneath the green grasses of Arlington was under that teacher’s shoe and every body buried in far away places who fought and died in war while wearing that flag was right there on the floor as well.
And what of those students in that school who may well have mothers or fathers, brothers or sisters in the service of our nation today?
