There’s just something majestical about our nation’s flag. It truly is a sight to behold, and a sight that should not be kept from the eyes of all our citizens. The flag represents all the sacrifices that were made, the history, and the glory of this fine nation. Who wouldn’t want to proudly fly the colors for all to see?
About a month ago, some UC Irvine students decided that they were offended by the flag and didn’t want to see the flag on their campus. Luckily, the ban of the flag never happened. Now, some California Republicans want to ensure that it never happens in their state.
On Monday afternoon, Senator Janet Nguyen (R-Garden Grove) and several of her colleagues jointly announced that they will introduce a Senate Constitutional Amendment on Wednesday that prohibits state funded colleges and universities from banning the flag of the United States of America on school property.
That statement alone deserves a standing ovation. She even fired off this A+ quote:
“I came to this country as an immigrant searching for freedom and democracy and I would not be here today if it were not for the American flag,” said Senator Nguyen. “The veterans that are with us here today and the thousands of servicemen and women fighting throughout the world deserve for us to make every effort to ensure that the American flag is proudly displayed at public universities and colleges throughout California. That is why we have introduced this Senate Constitutional Amendment.”
Well said, Janet. When (not even going to say “if” on this because we don’t live in communist Russia) the bill passes state legislature and gains voter approval in November of 2016, all state-funded campuses will not be allowed to ban the U.S. flag. Some of those schools include the University of California, California State University, and community colleges campuses.
These colors don’t run..
