Jeremy Stoppel, a Northglenn High School student in Colorado was told by school security to stop flying the US flags on his truck. He was told to do so because the high school focuses on diversity and she doesn’t want anyone to feel uncomfortable. WTF. Maybe some one should tell the moron security guard that the United States flag represents diversity and the greatest melting pot ever known.
So the delusional concept of making others feel uncomfortable trumps the First Amendment and Freedom of Speech? Who is making who feel uncomfortable?
Could some one please tell me what country we live in again and how it can make any one uncomfortable seeing the America flag flying? What’s next, we are not allowed to fly the American flag on Flag Day? Just curious does this high school have an American flag atop their flag pole? What is wrong with people who actually think that the Red, White and Blue flag of the United States of America would make people feel uncomfortable. Those that actually do, might want to think about living some place else.
A high school student in Northglenn is upset that campus security told him to remove the large American flags flying from his pickup truck because it might make others uncomfortable.
Jeremy Stoppel told 7NEWS he got a ticket at Northglenn High School last Thursday for squealing his tires. He said he deserved that ticket and deserved having his parking lot pass suspended for two weeks.
But he’s upset that campus security then told him he can’t fly his 3 feet by 5 feet flags in the bed of his pickup truck anymore.
“She said I should take my flags down. She said this is a school that focuses on diversity and she doesn’t want anyone to feel uncomfortable,”Stoppel said. “How do you suppose anyone would feel uncomfortable in America with an American flag? That’s where I’m confused.”
He said he started flying his flags around school last week.
“Now that I finally get to drive to school, I have a truck, that’s what I want to do. I want to fly my flags. September 11th is coming up so I wanted to fly them in honor of that,” said Stoppel, who said his cousin is serving in the Navy.Stoppel and his father want an apology from that security supervisor.

According to 7NEWS in Colorado, the high school has no policy of not being able to fly an American flag. In fact to answer the previous question from above, the school has an American flag flying from its flag poll and not one from a communist country.
7NEWS checked and the school has no policy against flying the American flag. In fact, Northglenn High School has a U.S. flag on the flag pole in front of the school.
