Save a Flag: Burn a School

Old Glory AblazeObviously I don’t recommend anyone burn a school.  But apparently schools inculcate hatred of America in their hearts, teaching them to set fire to American flags and shred Constitutions.  Don’t believe me?  Look no further than moonbatty Maine, where a student went public with the anti-American curriculum: you get extra credit for burning a flag.  Amazing!

A University of Maine student alleges her former professor offered extra credit to class members if they burned the American flag or the U.S. Constitution or were arrested defending free speech.

That’s always in the lesson plan.  I don’t know why anybody would be surprised by this.  Normally it’s not so blatant though.  Get arrested and get an A.  Something is definitely stinky in Maine.  How many students have done their homework isn’t revealed in the article, but they are obviously ticking timebombs ready to go off at the next leftist protest.  It has happened time and again.

We at B4B have documented some of the recent examples of flag burning, including one fellow who took a crap on a burning American flag.  Now we know where these motivations are coming from.  Look no further than your local liberal brainwashing center: the schoolhouse.  It’s high time that students were taught to love America rather than to despise her.

  1. So, one nutty professor = the whole school system. Nice logic here.

  2. People should realize that putting our kids in school puts them at extreme risk. Sure this one kid casts unconfirmed aspersions today but how many kids experience this kind of craziness every single day in kindergarten through their final day of a doctorate program and don’t speak up. Just think, without kids going to school, we can save their souls and the taxes necessary to pay for their public assisted education. It’s a win-win. Sure, it will take awhile for corporations to understand the intricacies and curiosities of our home schooled kids, but the rest of the developed and developing world will understand and give our corporations time to adjust and won’t promote their seemingly more prepared students. Jesus understood banking and physics and all the rest without communist teachers pushing their false idols into the details of G*d’s Knowledge.

  3. “Sure, it will take awhile for corporations to understand the intricacies and curiosities of our home schooled kids”
    corporations shouldnt be exploiting children for money anyway, why is this a concern?
    “communist teachers pushing their false idols”
    communists have no idols, burning the flag is wrong but the constitution needs some revision.
    Extra credit shouldnt be offered to people doing that anyway, the uni proffessor was pushing his ideals on those kids for material reward;
    P.S if someone burned an iraqi flag on USA soil would you care?

  4. As America sinks lower and lower into the slime of public education and ignorance, our teachers “teach”

    “A Kentucky seventh-grade teacher’s attempt to provide his students with a lesson in left wing cult practices went up in smoke Monday when he was removed from the classroom for burning two American flags. ”

    “according to Jefferson County School District spokeswoman Lauren Roberts he ‘was giving his social studies classes a lesson about flag burning where they were supposed to use the flag burning as a prompt to go home and burn their siblings and their parents'”

    Shocking but true! If only he had listened to baby Jesus and taught them just to HATE their parents but not necessarily to burn them:

    “If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother…he cannot be my disciple.”- The Lord Jesus Christ (Luke 14:26)

    then he would still be in his classroom.

  5. Professors often use provocative statements to get students to think outside of the box, to challenge people to really look at issues. If you take a minute to read the article, there was no actual extra credit available and the other students understood the statement as just a vehicle to provoke thought. Right wing talk radio uses provocative statements all the time to make a point (“liberalism is a mental disorder” is my favorite), but I don’t see much criticism from the right on this parallel behavior.
    That said, I don’t care if flag burning is not actually illegal. You’ve got an asskicking coming if I see you doing something so stupid to dishonor those who died for that flag.

    Ed, while I appreciate and appluad your violent tendencies, I have to warn you that this has nothing to do with some losers who got themselves killed fighting in our wars.

    This behavior is sickening because it insults all of US who are wearing flag lapel pins. We are demonstrating the highest form of patriotism and these lefto-commie-islamo-facists are threatening to BURN us!

    I for one am very afraid of these terrorists and am reading to give our government FULL AUTHORITY to do whatever they need to do to stop them.

    I’m sure your willingness to engage in violence has been recorded and that you will receive instructions shortly.

  7. I GO TO UNIVERSITY OF MAINE AND THIS IS THE LEAST OF IT!!! It is well known that if you are not a leftist nut as ALL of the professors around here are, you will be harassed, embarrassed, graded down and publicly humiliated. One of my professors mocked me in front of the entire class for adding to a class discussion about the current races because I admitted to not supporting Hillary in the primary. Another one of my professors pulled me aside at the end of the semester to “apologize” to me for being a little rude at times and wanted to make sure that I wouldn’t report him. Of course this was directly after he evaluated my portfolio and hadn’t graded it. The bottom line: MODERATES, keep your mouths shut if you don’t want to be scorned or graded down at the University of Maine by the academia that controls this school.

  8. It’s one thing to support patriotism, it’s another to practice Idolitry, even if it’s a flag. Anti-flag burners praise false gods.

  9. GET A GRIP! This has been taken WAY OUT OF CONTEXT! I attend the University of Maine and I am disgusted at how literal people have been taken for a joke. I am not saying that I agree with what the professor said, but this should not be national news. Maine is getting a bad reputation for an off-hand remark that was made in reference to Freedom of Speech, which is the right to burn a flag. The teacher was not meant to be taken seriously, and the student that reported it never asked the teacher whether he was serious or not, never spoke with any University official about it. Instead, she went directly to The Leadership Institute in Virginia, making everything national. The professor was quoted by them without even interviewing him. That’s nice work right there. I’d also like to make reference to your view of the University of Maine:
    “Get arrested and get an A. Something is definitely stinky in Maine. How many students have done their homework isn’t revealed in the article, but they are obviously ticking timebombs ready to go off at the next leftist protest.”

    Like I already said, the teacher was taken way out of context, he was not serious. The student was only in the class for one day, nor did she speak to the professor about it. Freedom of speech isn’t only for liberals, it is there for all of us granted by the Bill of Rights. Flag-burning is protected under freedom of speech. Whether or not we agree with protestors or flag-burning, people have the right to do all of these things, and the professor was simply making a reference, and was taken way out of context.

  10. It is wrong to force one’s beliefs upon another, especially if you are in a position to be a guifde of sorts to those which you are forcing to your viewpoint.
    That being said, there is nothing more American than disagreeing.

  11. Please. Children lie about things, no matter what their background. If a child is failing in his class, today’s society, with its ridiculous denial of personal accountability, allows him to get away with making up slander against his teacher to get out of that “F.” I believe this is what happened here, as no teacher in this day and age would be stupid enough to suggest such a thing.

    Only growing maturity, and strict parental discipline, will save this child from a lifetime as a pathological liar. May the Lord grant that he see the folly of his actions.
