In another sign of political correctness gone horribly wrong, the American flag has been banned from being displayed at UC Irvine.
In a push for what has been described as cultural inclusion, the student government at UC Irvine has voted to ban the display of all flags — including the American flag — in an area of the campus.
As posted at the website “Campus Reform” the Associated Students of University of California, Irvine (ASUCI) passed the Bill that was authored by Social Ecology Representative Matthew Guevara who accuses all flags, especially, the American flag, of being “symbols of patriotism or weapons for nationalism.”
“[T]he American flag has been flown in instances of colonialism and imperialism,” the bill continues, arguing that “symbolism has negative and positive aspects that are interpreted differently by individuals.”
Great comment there in response to this vote: “Time to remove that offensive American currency from their pockets too”.
