Lee Francis, Teacher at Massey Hill Classical High School in Fayetteville, NC Suspended after American Flag-Stomping Faux First Amendment Lesson
THIS TEACHER WAS NOT PROVIDING ANY LESSON ABOUT FREEDOM OF SPEECH, THIS WAS ABOUT THE RADICAL LEFT’S DISRESPECT AND HATRED OF AMERICA.
Lee Francis, a teacher at Massey Hill Classical High School, has been put on suspension with pay after he placed an American flag on the ground and stepped on it in an so-called effort to teach children about freedom of speech. The backlash from this disgusting act has been swift and massive on social media and from the public at large. The top school system administrator, Cumberland County Schools Superintendent Frank Till said in a statement, “Clearly, there are other ways to teach First Amendment rights without desecrating the flag.” However, the radical leftist teacher said he’s been shocked by the backlash, both in-person and on social media, that his lesson has generated. REALLY, WHAT KIND OF A CLUELESS INDIVIDUAL ARE YOU? This fool is shocked that people would be outraged that you used a school setting to desecrate an American flag in a state that has so many military installations!
A note to Lee Francis and the rest of the American hating liberal teachers in America … the majority of people in the U.S. love America and they don’t need you stomping on a flag to provide them with a lesson on free speech. This was just a hateful act of a liberal trying to spew their venom on children. Nothing more.
A teacher’s First Amendment lesson at a Fayetteville high school has sparked outrage and he has been place on leave by school officials.
Lee Francis, a teacher at Massey Hill Classical High School, said he put an American flag on the ground and stepped on it. But, he said, it was in the context of a lesson on freedom of speech.
“I put it on the ground and I used my right foot and I took two steps on it, and immediately two kids get out of the room,” he said.
A number of residents denounced Francis’ actions, calling them unpatriotic.
“I think it’s inappropriate to teach that in school,” said Fayetteville resident Grayson Chavonne. “If he wants to do that in his own home that’s his prerogative, but it doesn’t need to be taught to our kids.”
Dan Travieso, who is running for the N.C. Senate in District 21, called Francis’ lesson a direct insult to those who fought for our country and a “poor choice of judgment.”
“Just because I step on the flag doesn’t mean I step on their graves,” Francis said. “It doesn’t mean I step on their bodies as they return from overseas. It means I step on a piece of fabric.”
This fool’s statement shows just how little this man really knows and why he should never be teaching children. Guess what you moron, people have given their lives to defend the flag that is symbolic of America and liberty. Yes you were disrespecting those that died defending it and if you can’t understand that, you should be no where near teaching children.
OH THE POETIC JUSTICE … KARMA IS A BITCH.
As the speeches went on at the highly Hollywood produced DNC infomercial, Democrats, socialists and anarchists were outside protesting in the street making slurs about capitalism and burning the American flag.
I must say, a grin came across y face when I witnessed the below bit of poetic justice and karma from Old Glory as a moron sets an American flag on fire and then gets engulfed in the flames as he tries to step on it. Don’t worry, I am sure Obamacare will pay for his injuries.
Obama Finally Lowers White House Flags to Half Staff 5 Days After 4 US Marines & 1 Navy Sailor Murdered in Terror Attack in Tennessee
IT TOOK LESS THAN 5 HOURS FOR THE OBAMA TO COLOR THE WHITE HOUSE IN RAINBOW COLORS, BUT 5 DAYS TO LOWER THE FLAGS IN HONOR OF THE US MILITARY FALLEN IN CHATTANOOGA, TENNESSEE.
File this one under, the its about time file. Well America, you voted for a president, not once, but twice, who said he would fundamentally change America. How’s that working out for you? Yesterday, Barack Obama finally ordered the lowering of the American flag to half-staff at the White House and other public buildings. Of course it was only after pressure mounted against him to do so as the president finally ordered the lowering of the flag some 5 days after the terror attack in Chattanooga, TN where 4 US Marines and one Navy sailor was killed. Critics argued that Obama lowered the flag immediately following other mass shootings like Sandy Hook and it was mere hours after the SCOTUS ruled on same sex marriage that Obama had the White House showered in rainbow colors.
President Obama has ordered flags at the White House and other public buildings to fly at half-staff after mounting criticism over the delay in honoring five armed forces members killed last week by a gunman.
Obama’s proclamation calls for the flags to remain at half-mast through Saturday “as a mark of respect for the victims of the senseless acts of violence perpetrated on July 16.”
“Our thoughts and prayers as a Nation are with the service members killed last week in Chattanooga. We honor their service. We offer our gratitude to the police officers and first responders who stopped the rampage and saved lives,” Obama said in a presidential proclamation released Tuesday.
“We draw strength from yet another American community that has come together with an unmistakable message to those who would try to do us harm: We do not give into fear. You cannot divide us. And you will not change our way of life.”
Obama announced his decision hours after Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) ordered flags at the U.S. Capitol to be flown at half-staff.
Ahead of Obama’s decision, conservatives lined up to pan the president for failing to lower the flag. They noted that various governors around the country have done so and that the White House had lowered its flag after other mass shootings.
It is disgraceful that a Commander in Chief would wait this long to honor fallen military heroes. And only because he was pressured to.
Happy Independence Day 2015 … Happy Birthday America … JULY 4, 2015 … “That to Secure These Rights, Governments are Instituted Among Men, Deriving their Just Powers from the Consent of the Governed.”
HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMERICA … JULY 4, 2015!!!
click on pic for fireworks, I remember recording this so many years ago
On this July 4th, 2015 as We celebrate Our American Independence. Remember that as our own government, that is supposed to be of, by and for the People, attempts to make “We the People” dependent upon government. As we celebrate American Independence with family and friends always remember that Freedom, Liberty and Independence are never free and come at a great cost. The great sacrifice of Our Founding Fathers and those who followed to protect our way of life should never be forgotten. A special thanks to those who made it possible for the words scribed in The Declaration of Independence 1776. Because the politicians of today would have been incapable of doing so.
Remember the sacrifice and the bravery of so many who fought against the British crown to create an Independent country of the United States of America. And so many after gaining our independence who gave their lives to protect and maintain those freedoms. TODAY, it is “We the People’s” job to maintain American independence as stated in the Declaration of Independence, “That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.” America, that means that government gets its power from the people, not the other way around. NEVER FORGET THAT.
IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.–Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world. [...]
In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people. [...]
We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.
God Bless the USA – Lee Greenwood
I’m proud to be an American where as least I know I’m free
And I won’t forget the men who died, who gave that right to me
And I’d gladly stand up next to you and defend her still today
‘Cause there ain’t no doubt I love this land God bless the USA

What would the 4th of July be without this great song from School House Rock from the Bicentennial year of 1976 … ‘The Shot Heard ‘Round the World’. Generation of children grew up watching this VIDEO of the Battle of Lexington and Concord. Sadly today, School House Rock became school house liberal indoctrination. Take a good look at the lyrics below from this video for all-time. Would the PC crowd of today demand that the word rebel flag be stricken? Do you think it matters to them or they have any understanding that Our Founding Fathers, those at the Boston Tea party and those who fought for Independence were the rebels?
“The British are coming! The British are coming!”
Now, the ride of Paul Revere
Set the nation on its ear
And the shot at Lexington heard ’round the world
When the British fired in the early dawn
The War of Independence had begun
The die was cast, the rebel flag unfurled
And on to Concord marched the foe
To seize the arsenal there you know
Waking folks searching all around
Until our militia stopped them in their tracks
At the old North Bridge we turned them back
And chased those Redcoats back to Boston town
And the shot heard ’round the world
Was the start of the Revolution
The Minutemen were ready, on the move
Take your powder, and take your gun
Report to General Washington
Hurry men, there’s not an hour to lose!
Now, at famous Bunker Hill
Even though we lost, it was quite a thrill
The rebel Colonel Prescott proved he was wise
Outnumbered and low on ammunition
As the British stormed his position
He said, “Hold your fire until you see the whites of their eyes!”
Though the next few years were rough
General Washington’s men proved they were tough
Those hungry, ragged boys would not be beat
One night they crossed the Delaware
Surprised the Hessians in their lair
And at Valley Forge they just bundled up their feet!
And the shot heard ’round the world
Was the start of the Revolution
The Minutemen were ready, on the move
Take your blanket, and take your son
Report to General Washington
We’ve got our rights and now it’s time to prove
Louis Farrakhan Says, “We need to put the American flag down. Because we’ve caught as much hell under that as the Confederate flag”
I know this is difficult for many of you to say and admit, Rush Limbaugh was right.
It did not take Louis Farrakhan long to prove conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh correct regarding the LEFT going after the American flag next. In an interview with WMAL, Louis Farrakhan stated “We need to put the American flag down. Because we’ve caught as much hell under that as the Confederate flag”. This hateful race-baiter went on to say, “They Don’t Give a Damn About Them 9.? Just days earlier Rush Limbaugh said, “And I’ll make another prediction to you. The next flag that will come under assault, and it will not be long, is the American flag.”
Hmm, who is spewing the hate?
Louis Farrakhan stated “We need to put the American flag down. Because we’ve caught as much hell under that as the Confederate flag” in remarks before the Metropolitan AME Church in Washington, DC on Wednesday first reported by DC’s WMAL.
Farrakhan said, “White folks march with you because they don’t want you upsetting the city, they don’t give a damn about them nine.”
He added that when the police took suspected shooter Dylann Roof to Burger King they were saying “You did a good job. Kill all them [bleep.]”
Later, he declared, “I don’t know what the hell the fight is about over the Confederate flag. We need to put the American flag down. Because we’ve caught as much hell under that as the Confederate flag,” comments that were meant with cheers and applause.
C’mon LEFT, c’mon Media Matters, c’mon race-baitors, says it … RUSH WAS RIGHT!
