It is no secret that there have been some instances where students at American Universities have been taught that America is evil. That it is the American system that is the cause of evil and hate in the world. Our belief that we are an exceptional country, and that is why we are the freest, healthiest, and richest country the world has ever seen makes these people angry. Well, they are finally doing something about that anger.
The Christian Times reports
The student organization at the University of California, Irvine, has passed a resolution banning the American flag and other nations’ flags at the common lobby area of its office, drawing criticisms from students and alumni.
The vote was 6 for banning the flag and 4 against banning the flag. It would seem to be something that they could not do, after all they are in America. It is not we are talking about illegal aliens marching down the street with the Mexican flag. When that happens, no one says a word. But have an American flag on an American university and we have problems.
The six students who voted to pass the resolution were Matthew Guevara, Khaalidah Sidney, John Salazar, Naty Rico, Matthew Tsai and Negar Fatahi. Good red blooded Americans I bet. They did not pass this with out reason, of course.
The resolution said “no flag, of any nation, may be hanged on the walls of the Associate Student main lobby space” to make it “as inclusive as possible.”
But that’s not all.
“common ideological understanding of the United States includes American exceptionalism and superiority.”
The resolution said, “the American flag has been flown in instances of colonialism and imperialism.”
It said the student organization takes seriously the idea of “designing a culturally inclusive space.” They resolution said, “designing a culturally inclusive space aims to remove barriers that create undue effort and separation by planning and designing spaces that enable everyone to participate equally and confidently.”
Now this means that there are students who are so restricted by what the American flag stands for that they feel as though they are unable to, “participate equally and confidently.” This means that there is no way that they can participate in our society if we fly our flag. To that, I say, go home then. And, if you were born here, then go somewhere else. If a flag invokes that much hurt and resentment in you then you have problems.
We also have to understand that the U.S. has not nor is not now involved in imperialism or colonialism. At best, we were victims of it until 1776. By God’s grace, we were able to free ourselves from such tyranny.
If this is what our universities are promoting then I pray that all parents will remove their children and the whole lot of them collapse. Fortunately, this is not something supported by the leadership or the student body executive. They are seeking a way to veto this resolution.
