In a shocking decision, a federal court of appeals – the Ninth Circuit – just ruled that it was acceptable for a school to ban the American flag.
Even worse, the court allowed the display of the Mexican flag, but not the American flag.
The Court held that the American flag could be banned because the kids displaying the flag were threatened.
But shouldn’t the school stop the threats rather than ban the flag?
This is a key First Amendment battle. Displaying the American flag is free speech, and we can’t stifle patriotic free speech in the face of anti-American threats.
