This Is How you Punch Back

h/t The Last Tradition

NY Post reports a group of students and parents in Alabama is calling for the removal of arainbow "pride" flag from a high school classroom — arguing that it can be compared to displaying a Confederate flag.
“We strongly feel that it creates a hostile and provocative learning environment for students not comfortable to openly supporting the LGBTQ+ community in a public school where students come from diverse political and religious backgrounds," their petition reads about the flag in Auburn.
More than 800 people have signed the petition demanding the flag on display just outside a classroom at Auburn High School be taken down.
Good for them.
Last I looked, no one else in high school is flying a sexual identity flag, so there shouldn't be any special dispensation for some fringe minority. It's got no business being displayed in a public institution of learning.

Run with that. Make the lunatards defend every bit of nonsense, and throw back every beachhead they try to establish. If a Confederate flag, let alone the American flag, is "too controversial", then the LGBTLMNOP flag is certainly in the same prohibited category.

Punch back twice as hard as they do, and don't give them a square inch of safe space, anywhere, anytime. Make them wish they'd kept their mouths shut, and if they came to argue about it, make 'em pack a lunch.

You want a pretty garden, you've gotta keep a weed whacker by the door, and get after it every chance you get.

Couch potatoes need not apply.

The counter petition ( ) made me laugh. The wording - are they serious? NOW they're saying this?

"In the real world, to suggest individuals be isolated from differing political views is an absurdity. To be made uncomfortable by opinions differing to your own is to function as a modern human. Attempting to insulate a student from political discourse would be an insult to their intelligence."

It's put them up against a wall. Excellent. Now they're having to defend free speech. Of course it's only for them, but I'm sure I'm not the only person to see the utter and complete absurdity in a bunch of leftists actually typing that. After YEARS of trying to shut people up with their PC crap, now they're saying that it's ok to be made "uncomfortable with opinions differing to your own". Except, of course, if those opinions are ACTUALLY different.. to theirs.

Anyhow, I CANNOT be the only person to notice the blatant hypocrisy right there.

Keep pushing, folks! Hit them where it hurts!

If they fight this off successfully, the way is clear for Confederate flags, and everything else.
Either way, no double standards.
Undo PC, or undo their pet causes. Win-win.
