It’s really sad when the school superintendent knows less than the students. The Betsy Ross flag is all of a sudden a racist symbol to these cultural marxists who want to erase American history. Along with the buzz of changing our “racist” national anthem, now we have this dunce apologizing for students who brought the flag to a football game. The local liberal lap dog media had this to say about the Betsy Ross Flag:
“Those flags display a circle of 13 stars on the blue field, a symbol co-opted by some white supremacy groups because the flag was used when slavery was still legal.”
What a bunch of bullish*t! You can call anything racist these days but THIS flag has nothing to do with racism:
On June 14, 1777, the Continental Congress, seeking to promote national pride and unity, adopted the national flag. “Resolved: that the flag of the United States be thirteen stripes, alternate red and white; that the union be thirteen stars, white in a blue field, representing a new constellation.” Read more: Betsy Ross
THE BETSY ROSS FLAG WAS CREATED TO “PROMOTE NATIONAL PRIDE AND UNITY”!
A Michigan public school superintendent wrote in a published “letter to the community” that students at a high school football game injected “hate” and “hostility” because they waved a historical Betsy Ross flag that has 13 stars to represent the original 13 colonies.
The students waved the flag at a Sept. 9 football game at Houseman Field between Forest Hills Central and Ottawa Hills. The students also brought a Donald Trump for President banner to the event.
The superintendent received a complaint from a parent and then published the letter which is dated Sept. 12.
“And to wave a historical version of our flag, that to some symbolizes exclusion and hate, injects hostility and confusion to an event where no one intended to do so,” Forest Hills Public Schools Superintendent Daniel Behm wrote.
Behm continued with an apology: “To our gracious hosts — the students, families, staff, and community of Grand Rapids Ottawa Hills High School and Grand Rapids Public Schools — and to the student-athletes, coaches, officials, and supporters of both teams, we are truly sorry. These actions are not characteristic of our schools, our staff, our students, or our community, and they represent a lack of knowledge.”
Forest Hills Public Schools released a statement that said the students wouldn’t be disciplined for the Betsy Ross flag and “it will be used as a teachable moment.”
