American flag lowered in presence of Saudi Arabian flag at Ft. Collins public school

Via Fox News:   An elementary school in Colorado has come under criticism after they lowered the American flag and elevated a Saudi Arabian flag

The principal at Bauder Elementary School in Fort Collins said they did not mean to disrespect the American flag, according to a report in the Greeley Gazzette. 
Principal Brian Carpenter told the newspaper that the American flag was immediately returned to its proper and prominent position at the school. He explained that other flags are posted around the school to recognize the nationalities of students from other countries
A photograph showing the raised Saudi flag alongside the lowered American flag was first posted on the Greeley Report, a local blog. It generated lots of local debate.  “We realize this is an extremely sensitive time with us getting close to the 10th anniversary of 9/11,” Carpenter told the Gazzette. 
There is an increased amount of alertness and sensitivity, but if someone is concerned about something to do with our flag I will settle the issue right away.”
Enough with the PC “sensitivity” crap!  We live in the United States of America!  Fly Old Glory and wave her proudly!
Those that originate from other countries have the option to fly their country’s flag where ever they want –  in their home, on their car, and on their body (a tattoo comes to mind).  We must not bow to pressure to place any other country’s flag above that of the great United States of America!

  3. If it was done to anger people, it worked, if it was an accident, so be it, leave it at that. It is a shame that we have to work very hard to find something to be happy about these days. A person would need to have lost all of his or her senses to not know what is going on, politically, economically, world upheaval-wise and the whole ball of wax that we now call modern living. Everyone is becoming super critical of everything and everyone. Why? Personally, I will never meet any of the people on television or the internet and I doubt many of you will. I corresponded with Senator Wayne Morse for years, met Mark Hatfield briefly, met Roy Rogers, Dale Evans, Harry Belafont, The Everly Brothers, Laurence Welk and befriended the Ice Follies skaters and The Kabuki Theater group touring Oregon. I also met and talked at length with Luciano Pavarotti. These were people, just people, and I would never say an unkind word about any of them. Too bad our main stream media is busy looking for all of the dirt, both real and manufactured, to hurt the Republican Party, Conservatives and members of the Tea Party, and zero time cleaning its own house where most of the dirt in the United States is.

  4. I don’t care if they were flying a Spring flag. There has always been proper etiquette regarding the flying of the American flag. You have to be willfully ignorant not to know what’s appropriate. We complain about how children are disrespectful; we need look no further as to why.

     
  5. We shouldn’t be so hard on that Colorado elementary school. After all, they’re only following the example set by our CIC!
    Obama sucks

     
  6. I fly the flag as often as I can.
    I also carry a gun with me waiting for some illegal to try and remove it. You see they would have to tresspass to gain access to it.
    I PROUD to be NONCOMPLIANT in the P.C. area.

     
  7. PC and affirmative action will be entered for cause on America’s death certificate. I don’t understand why the American flag was lowered in deference to the Saudi Arabian flag at a Colorado school. There is no reasonable or tolerable explanation for this incident.
