Idaho School Bans Confederate Flag On Student’s Car

We have previously discussed the ongoing controversy over the confederate flag as well as past cases of student speech being curtailed. This story combines those themes after Jordan Beattie, a student at Cossa Academy in Wilder, Idaho was banned from flying the confederate flag that his girlfriend had given him. He was told that the flag was interpreted to be a gang symbol.

Schools officials said that they found an image of the flag on a gang site used by the local police, but the Caldwell Police Department Gang Unit told the media that it was unsure as to where the school received that information. Caldwell Police Department Captain Frank Wyant said “We don’t look at the Confederate flag as a gang symbol. We don’t encourage anybody to take it down. Those are their rights and that’s what we’re here for is to protect and uphold those rights.”

Gullible Americans Forever

Listening to NPR news today I was reminded how throughly this once independent voice has sold out.

I was also reminded of the Mark Twain quote above. NPR reported that Syrians were lined up in Turkey waiting on passage on inflatable rafts to Greece. According to the NPR report, there are 2 million Syrian refugees in Turkey and 250,000 Syrians have been killed. NPR said nothing about the cause of this murder and displacement of vast numbers of people. It was if the plight of these people materialized out of thin air. The fact that Washington sicced ISIS, al Qaeda, Turkey, the US and NATO Air Forces, and Washington’s Middle Eastern vassals on Syria was not mentioned. The view on NPR is the same as Washington’s — that if only Assad would resign and hand Syria over to Washington, everything would be fine.

Looking Back: Ron Paul’s Interviews with Jon Stewart on The Daily Show

Though Jon Stewart on Thursday concluded his 16-year run as host of The Daily Show, Stewart’s interviews will live on — including his informative and entertaining interviews with former US House of Representatives member and presidential candidate Ron Paul.

While Stewart did not see eye to eye with Paul on every issue, Stewart’s conversations with Paul were always respectful and centered on exploring important issues underlying political debates. As with many people, Stewart’s respect for Paul stems at least in part from a recognition of Paul’s consistency.
