Jan 6 Commemoration

 

#4 son reports that he may be in trouble.

We had a small Jan 6 party in class. Drew an American flag on the whiteboard, some people wore MAGA hats, and we wrote, next to the American flag, “NATIONAL B-CAO DAY”, the name of the guy who was at the capital 2 years ago. The teacher blew a gasket. One guy also played the American national anthem when she walked in.

She apparently is going to seek detention or more formal disciplinary action against my kid. A kid who drew an American Flag on the whiteboard.

I hope and pray she does. Readers on Ricochet may not know it because of my unassuming and humble manner, but I love a good fight, especially the Good Fight. And I fight dirty. If given the excuse I will destroy this teacher, the school, and anyone who defends them. I’ll do it with vim and glee. And if my kid is expelled, it will be icing on the cake.

C’mon… PLEASE attack my kid!

    Oh my goodness.

    You’re right.  This could be fun.  Teachers are unaccustomed to anyone questioning them, and I very much doubt that she has any idea who she’s messing with.  This has the potential to be absolutely wonderful.

    Please do keep us posted.

    What grade? Sounds like fun, and  can you really get in trouble for drawing an American flag . . . in America?

    A friend of mine told me that his daughter was told not to wear a T-shirt at school, because it had an American flag on it and it might trigger minorities.  

    But then again, that wasn’t in America – that was Massachusetts.

    In a public school?

    This is black-letter First Amendment if it’s a public school.

    Somebody will have to fill me in.  I did a search for NATIONAL B-CAO DAY and came up with nothing.  B-CAO is the name of the guy who was at the capitol?  I did a search for Who is B-CAO and also came up with nothing.

    I’d like to see you toss the notion that “academic freedom” isn’t just for teachers into the mix.

    It would be awful awesome if the kids wore American flag patches on the shoulders of their shirts and jackets to this teacher’s class.

    I was trying to figure that out, too.

    You are being too harsh on the teacher. Bring her lots of reasons to see their point of view and make her a believer.

    Question for the teacher: are your most disputatious students also your best students? If so, then maybe the problem isn’t with the students.

    This may requiring her to sever ties to her colleagues, the folks who are ready to make her a heroine in the cause of Truth, Justice, and the (anti) American Way.

    Crucify her.  Point, counterpoint.

    One assumes Massachusetts has not yet taken the flag down outside of the school.  Because it might be triggering.

    Hell, you’d more likely trigger suburban Democrat mommies than anyone else, with a flag.  Shield your eyes, America!  It’s the flag!

    California college students vote out the American Flag, denounce ...

    No flag, no foul.

    The post has 44 Likes, so I am presuming that most everybody else knows what this means.  I don’t know why nobody wants to enlighten the few of us outside the loop.

    Bad presumption. I don’t know, either.

    Turns out one of the kids was there on 6 Jan, and his name is B— Cao. So as the official MAGA kid, they made 6 Jan “his” day.

    Update: I have not heard of an escalation, so unless something happens this week, the teacher will have stood down. I’ll let y’all know…

    It is a private school, not a public one.

    And yes, I have had run-ins with them before. They were promoting “non-Western cultures” and I asked if they would be honoring the universal (at one point or another for all pagan societies) indigenous custom of eating your enemies.  I wrote on this extensively at the time, but cannot easily find the post.

    #4 is a senior and applying to college. There is really no downside to me going to the wall. The next two boys (our last… sniff…) will almost certainly not be applying to this school anyway.

    You mean like that Asian culture known as Judaism? It’s also associated with a derivative Asian religion known as Christianity. Were they teaching those bits of Eastern culture? 😜
