I don’t care who you are. If you think the American flag is offensive, you need to check yourself. Seriously. Go to the doctor right now. Something is wrong with you.
Some administration official told the Stanford University fraternity Sigma Chi that their American flag was “offensive, intimidating, aggressive or alienating.”
The flag made others uncomfortable but that it’s being flown tainted Sigma Chi’s reputation and, presumably, worsened its chance of survival … The American flag, as a symbol, could be intimidating, aggressive or alienating — Mr. Z’s tone further signaled to [a student involved] that he found the mere sight of the American flag to be offensive.
Intimidating? Aggressive? ALIENATING? Give me a break! We’re the greatest country in the history of the world, if you can’t deal, TOO BAD.
Here’s the best part: The fraternity responded by hanging an even BIGGER flag!
In protest of Mr. Z’s suggestion, the house declined to remove the flag, instead choosing to replace it with an even bigger one. Some members, of course, abstained from the discussion about and decision to purchase a bigger flag. The following day, by [the student’s] doing, Sigma Chi upgraded from a three-by-five-foot flag to a four-by-six-foot flag. The former flag was then framed and placed on display inside the house. This decision was, in Lozano’s words, a “silent but visible protest” against the classification of the American flag as a potentially stigmatizing symbol by a member of the Stanford administration.
The report went on to detail how Sigma Chi’ was eventually banned from campus after the protest for other infractions against the Greek community and campus rules.
It just blows my mind that people view a university fraternity flying an AMERICAN flag in AMERICA as “offensive.”
What is this world coming to?
