Can’t Waive Your Own Flag In Your Own Country?

Are you kidding me? Are you FREAKING KIDDING ME? Telling a person they can’t display their country’s flag WHILE IN THEIR OWN COUNTRY? If they are worried about “racial tensions,” that illustrates the failure of our immigration system, and the failure to control our borders. If the American flag insults you while on American soil, then leave. If you are complaining about our flag because of what it represents, then take your anti-American anus and get out of our country. Go find a country with a flag you can live under, and make yourself at home.

DENAIR –

13-year-old Cody Alicea rides with an American flag on the back of his bike. He says he does this to be patriotic and to honor veterans, like his own grandfather, Robert. He’s had the flag on his bike for two months but Monday, was told to take it down.

A school official at Denair Middle School told Cody some students had been complaining about the flag and it was no longer allowed on school property.

“In this country we’re supposed to be free,” said Cody. “And I should be able to wave my flag wherever I want to. And they’re telling me I can’t.” Cody had to take the flag off his bike and put it in his backpack, where he kept it all week.

Cody’s grandfather says the school was concerned about racial tensions or uprisings because of the flag. He feels if there was really a problem it should have been brought up two months ago, not during Veterans week. And if it was an issue of safety, parents should have been contacted.


Hear from the Superintendent here


“No action should be taken. We don’t want any repercussion,” said Roger Alicea. “We just want Cody to be proud of what he’s doing.” Roger says the family is not planning to take any legal action, but they do want to meet with school staff.

Cody says he wants to serve in the military some day, and is raising money for a trip to Washington, D.C. in the Spring.

After being contacted by FOX40 Friday morning, Denair’s Superintendent says Cody will be allowed to keep the flag on his bike. He told FOX40 he and the school are patriotic, but their main priority is keeping students safe; the school will focus on the students who are causing uprisings. Riding a bike is still not allowed on school campus, but when Cody rides his bike to school he can now fly the flag.
