L.I. High School Students Suspended For Displaying Confederate Flag At Sporting Event « CBS New York

SOUTH HUNTINGTON, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) – Two Long Island high school students have been suspended for allegedly bringing a Confederate flag to school.

Brother Gary Cregan, principal of St. Anthony’s High School in South Huntington, said the two seniors walked in with a Confederate flag draped around their shoulders during an after-hours sporting event at the school.

As CBS 2?s Kathryn Brown reported, there is outrage and disgust on Long Island.

“The African-American students who immediately saw it really exercised heroic restraint and fortunately a teacher immediately confiscated the flag and took the students out of the gym,” Cregan said.

The students were initially suspended for 10 days, but Cregan decided Tuesday they won’t be allowed back, Brown reported.

Note the subtext:  if the “African-American students” had summarily beaten these two to death, well, it would have been tragic but understandable.  Triggers, you know.

Lesson learned:  If you attend public school, park your First Amendment liberties at the door.  That’s what they’re really teaching these days.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. Unfortunately St. Anthony’s is a private Franciscan Order High School.

    Why do you think homeschooling is a trend? Even, and sometimes especially since their parents are limo liberals, private schools are infected with PC.
