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

After a teenager was told that he couldn’t fly an American flag, along with a POW flag, on his truck to school, he and his fellow students rebelled. In response to this school’s absolutely absurd rule, teenagers and their supporters showed up flying the Old Glory proudly to show the school that they can’t ban patriotism.

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.”

… 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.”

Because of the national outrage over the decision to ban American flags in the United States, the school was forced to reverse their decision and allow the flying of American flags. But what’s sad is that it even happened this way to begin with — it’s a sad day when American schools have a problem with students showing pride in and love for our country.
