Students Stand on, Flip off American Flag in Class

Officials at a Pennsylvania high school are on the defensive after two students took pictures of themselves proudly desecrating the American flag in class.

Johnstown parents want to know how it was possible for students at Richland Township High School to stand on the American flag during school hours, brag about it by raising a middle finger to the camera, and then share it on social-media platforms.


“After you teach your students the history of America and everything that flag represents, feel free to offer them the option to move to any other country in the world that they feel would fit their needs. I know over 30,000 Navy veterans that would probably be happy to provide them with a one way ticket,” Marie Ellsworth wrote on the school’s Facebook page on Sunday.

“Disgusting. Insulting to those who gave their life for our country. Spoiled brats. Welcome them to go to another country,” said Sharon Fetterman Fiala . . .

“The message this picture sends is not justification to punish the students so the school needs to tread very carefully here,” ACLU of Pennsylvania legal director Witold Walczak told the NBC affiliate. He said it would “probably” be feasible to punish the students for vandalizing school property. (Read more from “Students Stand on, Flip off American Flag in Class” HERE)

    Well who’s teaching students to show no patriotism? Children are not being taught to respect anything in the schools thanks to common core. So this obscene act is is the fruit of the left. I would like to believe their parents would set these kids straight if the schools don’t

      and of course if any of us who fought under that flag, no matter where
      we fought, were to take those two kenyans and whip the daylights out of
      them we would be subject to criminal prosecution…especially if they
      were unarmed….we know that they are unarmed due to their having been
      indoctrinated in the nearly completely infected US education
      system…these punks and punkettes need to be shipped to africa along
      with all of the other “black lies matter”, the “new black pu$$ies”, and
      all of kenyan boyo’s boys that he has protected from getting their
      worthless asses shot off for “demonstrating” in places like Ferguson,
      Missouri..The USA has been going through a lot of serious changes
      relative to racial understanding since the Emancipation Proclamation and
      then the parasites, the coffee shop socialist clowns, and outside
      forces, read commies and rags, elected that illegal alien and all of the
      efforts have been turned upside down….Folks are getting very tired of
      the BS, when they have had enough the backlash will be brutal and
      devastating….

    As soon as they graduate high school, draft their butts and send them over to Afghanistan or Iraq and then they can be schooled on exactly what has to be done to give them the right of freedom of speech. It is not free, others pay the price. Personally, they should be expelled from school. I see the future of a ruptured America where the communist northern states and the patriot southern states decide they can no longer get along and we will have a divided north America and Southern America….then all these crappers will be wanting to move south because the northern progressive liberal communists will have nothing to offer. As I have said before, there is no difference between communism and socialism….communism ENSLAVES you by FORCE and socialism ENSLAVES you by VOTE. Remember, Adolph Hitler started off as a socialist and that did not turn out so well. Wake Up America before we lose our Republic.

    So much for their lessons in RESPECT, which I doubt they learn at home, nor at school… Take them for a tour at a nearby VA hospital, they will learn what humility is as well.

    • Charles

      You would think so, but I would not bet the farm on that.

      • Nam1

        That could be true, they would be outside of their safe zone.

    • Joey Smith

      Good idea. They’ve been miseducated thus far in their young lives. Bring them over to the VA hospital, along with their little photo, and ask the vets for some alternative views.

      • Nam1

        God forbid that should happen.

    • facebook is Dero

      section 8 welfare dregs or kids from the guilty white elitist class are neither capable of humility.

        The public Ed systems shaping minds for Americas decline.

  • TruthSeeker

    Just wish that they would have stood on the head of the legislators who are destroying this country – – The flag that they stood on is the closest that they can come to doing that – – Loyalty needs to be earned, NOT demanded of as the criminals in DC are doing – –

  • SIRWIZARD

    Ah…children. Aren’t they just the cutest things? Just look how respectful they are. They even remembered to wave while they were being so respectful. May the ghosts of millions who fought and died for this country haunt them for the rest of their lives until they can be handed over to hell.

  • Linda

    If one of my kids had done that they would have gotten a spanking they would NEVER FORGET !! Then I would probably make them sing the Star Spangled Banner every day in front of the flag with their hands over their hearts.

    They need to go back to their home country.

    So the ACLU has no problem with punishing students for wearing an “divisive” American flag shirt but thinks students stepping on the flag is fine. Is there one Democrat who will distance themselves from this act?
