American Flag Banned as “Offensive” from UC Irvine “Inclusive Space”

If you doubt that “inclusive” means “exclusive,” or that the sort of liberals who totally dominate college campuses hate Old Glory and all she stands for, read on:

The Associated Students of University of California, Irvine (ASUCI) voted Tuesday to remove all flags, including American flags, from an inclusive space on campus because of their offensive nature.

The bill, R50-70, was authored by Social Ecology Representative Matthew Guevara, and accuses all flags, especially, the American flag, of being “symbols of patriotism or weapons for nationalism.”

“[F]lags construct paradigms of conformity and sets [sic] homogenized standards for others to obtain which in this country typically are idolized as freedom, equality, and democracy,” the bill reads.

The hypocrisy of militant liberals imposing their totalitarian will so as oppose “paradigms of conformity” is enough to send your sanity tumbling like a drunk down a steep flight of stairs.

The bill denounces our flag for representing “American exceptionalism and superiority,” oppression, colonialism, imperialism, et cetera, ad nauseam. To display it “can be interpreted as hate speech.”

Again we see that the concept of “hate speech” is the ultimate totalitarian tool. Hate speech is anything, speech or otherwise, that liberals hate.

In order to be even-handed in the bogus liberal relativist sense, not just Old Glory but all national flags are banned. But other flags are irrelevant, so long as California is still technically part of the USA.

Under Obama, who hates “colonialism” and everything else liberals think our flag stands for as much as any other left-wing adolescent, the federal government would ban Old Glory if it could. But the flag in its most literal sense represents that very government.

So Obama et al. have gone the student petty tyrants at UC Irvine one better by emptying out the deeper meaning of the flag. If they remain in power long enough, one day the sight of the Stars and Stripes will make us avert our eyes in shame. At that point, the flag will be welcome in the “inclusive space.”

On tips from Henry, Dean D, Don M, Mr. Mentalo, Bodhisattva, and Wingmann.

Update:

A glimmer of hope…

The executive branch of UC Irvine’s student government vetoed a ban today on national flags in the university’s student government offices. …

The veto vote followed Thursday’s decision by six undergraduate students on the Associated Students Legislative Council to ban every country’s flag from its offices, including the U.S. flag…

The university’s administration issued a statement prior to today’s vote calling the decision to ban flags “misguided” and urging a veto.

“The views of a handful of students passing a resolution do not represent the opinions of the nearly 30,000 students on this campus, and have no influence on the policies and practices of the university,” the statement read.

Even on a college campus, if you push back against the moonbattery, you won’t be alone. Not everyone is twisted and insane.

    It occurs to me this is yet another example of desperate spoiled brats trying to be hip, cool, relevant and doing the most ridiculous things to get attention. And in that sense it worked.

    What their professors are not teaching them is that the Mexicans, Chinese, Vietnamese, Russians, North Koreans, etc., come to this country in order to escape the oppressive and murderous regimes in the countries that they came from. They are coming here to seek freedom and a better life.

    Now, if they want to come here and support Obama and the Democrats, they will soon find that America has turned into a worse Hell-hole than the one they just got our of.

    Idiot leftist brainwashed youngsters!

    How about this? Make a law that if UC Irvine displays the American Flag they will be fined and the purpetrators arrested. Tell the morons they can’t, and guess what will happen.

    Remember when the flag represented the Melting Pot?

    I guess the Melting Pot isn’t inclusive, or something.

    When America is liberated from leftist rule, we should deport everyone whose last name is Guevara. Yeah, I know, no relation in most cases, but any decent person with that as their family name would be ashamed enough to change it.

    Burning the American flag, of course, remains perfectly acceptable at UCI.

    Wen the Americans raised the flag at Iwo Jima did it offend the sensibilities of the natives ?
    Was it just so culturally divisive that they were made to take it down ?
    Some of these students need a good spanking and some history lessons.
