Daily Caller: Confederate Flags Are Just Like Gay Pride Flags
The Republican Party sent their best people out to the media today to downplay that Confederate flag at the White House yesterday, but the websites that keep the voting base whipped into an irrational frenzy had a different agenda. For example, the Daily Caller: Students Suspended for Confederate Flags to Protest Gay Flag.
At Tahoma High School in the nether suburbs of Seattle, it’s totally okay to display a gay-pride flag, but two juniors were suspended for three days for wearing Confederate flags at school.
An unnamed school district spokesman said that a sophomore had been exhibiting a gay-pride flag at Tahoma High for the last two weeks, reports local CBS affiliate KIRO. When the two juniors showed up on Tuesday in a common area wearing the Confederate flags as a political statement in response, they were suspended.
