Another Day in the Madhouse

Every once in a while you see a story that illustrates the madness of our times. This is a good example.

Two Long Island high school students have been suspended for allegedly bringing a Confederate flag to school.

Brother Gary Cregan, principal of St. Anthony’s High School in South Huntington, said the two seniors walked in with a Confederate flag draped around their shoulders during an after-hours sporting event at the school.

As CBS 2′s Kathryn Brown reported, there is outrage and disgust on Long Island.

Outrage? Disgust? Really?

“The African-American students who immediately saw it really exercised heroic restraint and fortunately a teacher immediately confiscated the flag and took the students out of the gym,” Cregan said.

The unintended racism at work here is amusing. Blacks, like feral animals, immediately fly into a rage upon seeing a flag. No one every stops to think about this. You see this assertion all over left-wing media. They believe blacks are so incapable of controlling themselves that they immediately go crazy when seeing a flag. In fact, they cheer when blacks go berserk over these things.

The students were initially suspended for 10 days, but Cregan decided Tuesday they won’t be allowed back, Brown reported.

Cregan wrote a letter to parents saying the use of any symbols “designed to revive past injustices or to inflame discrimination or racial intolerance, is completely unacceptable and profoundly offensive,” Newsday reported.

Cregan said he sees the flag as a symbol of hate.

“I find it just very hard to even imagine why any student in 2014 would even consider or think that a Confederate flag would be anything other than a symbol of hate,” Cregan said.

He is right. The flag does symbolize hatred. It is the hatred of southern whites by northern whites. Up until 25 years ago, displaying the Confederate flag was a non-event. As the South began to prosper, northern whites decided that southern whites were getting too uppity so they had to put them in their place. A big part of the new anti-white wave is the fact that the old confederate states are now the destination.

“It’s absolutely absurd, I don’t understand why you would bring up things from the past that are hateful,” student Jessica Flynn said.

Of course, asking the students is out of the question. They are hateful haters and must be banished from society. Ignorance is the price of freedom or something.

“It represents slavery to us. It represents racism and prejudice to us,” parent JuJu Quinnonez added. “Believe me, I am all for freedom of speech but to have someone come in to school with that flag draped around their shoulder – I’m not really sure what the intent was.”

This is ridiculous on a few levels. For starters, “JuJu” does not get a say in the matter, as his people clearly have no dog in the fight. Note the nonsensical statement from young JuJu.  He is for freedom of speech, but not if he does not understand it. In other words, his ignorance is a veto on speech. That’s probably not what he meant, but that’s what he is saying. He’s all for free speech maybe. Who knows?

“I certainly think this particular symbol of hate falls in the category of something that should be excised from our culture,” Cregan said.

“Symbol of hate” is one of those magical phrases that means “forbidden for reasons no one understands.” People are trained to think the symbol is evil and they go along with it, because they think that’;s what is required. In another age, they would have accused these boys of cavorting with the devil Today, the devil is white.

The students haven’t explained why they did it. St. Anthony’s is a private Catholic school and isn’t bound by the First Amendment right to free speech.

Still, the New York Civil Liberties Union said all people should be able to express their views freely, even the offensive ones.

“Our motto is more speech, not censorship or punishment,” NYCLU director Donna Lieberman told Brown. “Helping children understand the impact of this patently offensive expressive activity.”

Tensions are so high among students at St. Anthony’s that the principal said he has security concerns once the suspension is over. He’s made the decision that the students involved aren’t coming back at all.

This is where the madness of these adults is dangerous. In some weird attempt to take a silly prank and make it into a public act of piety, they are encouraging very bad behavior among their students. If these adults had any sense or self-respect and cared about their students, they would stop this nonsense. You take the flag from the kids and carry on like it was no big deal. In an age of madhouse superstition and irrational fear of the unseen, carrying on like a teenage age girls is the highest virtue.

Had they burned Stars & Stripes instead, same people would extol their right to do so. Shameless hypocrites.

Catholic schools are not now (and likely have not been for some time) run by serious people forming institutional cultures distinct from secular schools. (See recent controversies in Charlotte and Providence for gross examples). – I am not precisely sure why the activities of Bp. Hudal or Msgr. Tiso and the Slovak Church or corrupted Franciscans in Croatia 70 years ago are relevant to anything under discussion. Pace what you read in Commentary, that sort of thing was sorely atypical even at the time. Fr. Coughlin was an exponent of monetary nostrums to which was appended a mess of anti-semitic… Read more »

But…but…diversity!
Community “dialogue”!
(reinterpreted) Affirmative Action!
Special “Cultural” considerations!
The rights of the mentally retarded to “access” of public school assets!
Too bad no one determined that by (allegedly) “draping” it around their shoulders, they were dissing that flag.
