In a shocking decision, a federal court of appeals just ruled that a public school is allowed to ban the American flag.
Even worse, the Ninth Circuit allowed the display of the Mexican flag, but not the American flag.
How could this happen? How can a court rule that a foreign flag is acceptable but an American flag is not?
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.
