Teens Rally After South Carolina High School Bans American Flag in Parking Lot

A teenager from a South Carolina high school is rallying his fellow students after school administrators banned the American flag he was flying from his truck in the school parking lot.

Peyton Robinson of York Comprehensive High School was shocked to learn that the school administration was banning the large U.S. and POW flags he was flying from his pickup truck and in response to the banning he called for his fellow students to support his right to flay Old Glory despite the school’s rules.

As to why the flags were banned, the administrators claimed that the flags were a “safety concern.”

But he posted a Facebook post that complained about the decision.

I’ve been told by 2 administrators at my school this morning that I can’t have an American Flag on my truck because other people have complained about it. Well let me tell you something, I have every right to fly an American flag. It will not be coming off of my truck. This really pisses me off. I ask that everyone that sees this post that attends York Comprehinsive flys an American flag of some sort on whatever they may drive to school tomorrow to prove a point. I will not let this go down without a fight. “#America #fightforourright

The teen also told the media, “I’ve had family in the military and I have had friends who have had family members that didn’t come home,” Robinson told NBC Charlotte of the reason why he flies the flag. “School says they want us to have American pride, let us fly our flags.”
