A new level of absurdity

A bill proposed by the Student Council of the University of California-Irvine to remove the American flag from campus grounds, has been vetoed by the Executive Cabinet. Said veto could be overridden by a 2/3’s majority vote of the Student Body.

The Council moved to ban the flag due to their claim that national flags [and citing the flag of the United States in particular] have “flown in instances of colonialism and imperialism” and “serve as symbols of patriotism or weapons for nationalism.”

Talk about a collective grouping of ignorant, censoring, petulant twits. Enroll yourself in a private institution of learning, and can raise the fashionable Che banner and any other empty symbols of the ‘workers paradise’ you may desire.

  1. The bill didn't say anything about Che or a “worker's paradise”. Is there some article where it's revealed that the backers of this bill harbor such sentiments? In any case, what's wrong with treating workers well? Sounds like the author of this blog thinks that would be a horrible thing.

  2. No, the bill didn't. But we know well the leanings of those who espouse such ineffectual political tantrums. And there's nothing wrong with treating workers well…..within the parameters of the free market economy.

    Ironically, you've engaged in that which you criticize; you've leveled an unfounded aspersion upon me, while ignoring the topic of the post.

  3. With this one, CI, you have found your One Ring, your Everest, your White Whale, your Shangri-La. A gift that will keep on giving. A mythical mountain of that which you have perfectly described.
