Educrats Confiscate Old Glory From Autistic 12-Year-Old


Imagine the mayhem that would result if bureauweenies weren’t there to keep us safe. They even protect us from American flags brandished by autistic children.

A New Hampshire woman is upset that middle school officials confiscated her autistic son’s American flag because the rod it was attached to was deemed a safety hazard and, the mother claims, a possible “weapon.”

Theresa Stevens, of Dover, says her 12-year-old son, Shawn, brought the small flag to school to show friends. He had received it as a gift from a family friend whose son is in Afghanistan. …

“I got the phone call at 8:30 [Wednesday] morning,” she said. “‘This flag needs to be immediately removed from school because it can be considered a weapon.’ I don’t understand how an American flag can be considered a weapon.”

Educrats bleat that the flag is attached to a rod with a dangerously pointy end — although it doesn’t look as pointy as the pencils and compasses students routinely bring to class.

Next time Shawn should bring a rainbow flag to class if he doesn’t want it confiscated.
