Fox Nation shrieks: School Tells Child to Take Down Drawing of American Flag!

This leads to hundreds of raging right wing comments. For example:

WAKE UP AMERICA, WE ARE BEING OVER RUN BY THE SOCIALIST AND THE PRESIDENT IS HOLDING THE DOOR OPEN.

It’s also being hyped on Fox News, naturally. This is the kind of red meat they live for.

And the fake outrage quickly spread across the right wing blogs, of course, where the rage never stops.

But as usual, there’s a little more to the story.

22News tried to contact the Superintendent, Dr. Paul Burnim. He refused to go on camera, but told 22News over the phone that nobody ever told Franklin the drawing was offensive, and said the only reason it wasn’t hung was because Franklin was supposed to be doing other work; not drawing a picture. In a statement he said: “Each of our schools flies the American Flag every day. At the Butterfield School, the Pledge of Allegiance is recited by students and staff. And the other schools recite the Pledge of Allegiance at least once per week.”
