Not again! The PC freaks who have infiltrated nationwide school systems by disguising themselves as human beings have reached yet another new low. Morgan Truax is a high school senior at Foxborough High School set to graduate this June.  She is extremely well-liked and known by her family, friends, and coworkers as an extremely hard worker. Her employer – the very popular Red Wing Diner (clam strips are so good) which lies in the shadow of Gillette Stadium – honored Miss Truax by purchasing a page in her yearbook to congratulate her for graduating this year and to show their gratitude for her loyalty as an employee for the last few years.

12316191_1082235348466955_3056687424596452322_n

On the aforementioned page they have featured this beautiful picture of Morgan posing in front of the American flag. Oh but wait! The American flag?!?! In a high school yearbook?! Don’t they know that is unacceptable and racist in 2015?! Faculty members at Foxboro have refused to allow this picture to be published in the yearbook deeming it “offensive” and have since refused comment. WHAT HAS OUR COUNTRY BECOME?!?!?!

 

Naturally her mother was none too pleased.

    Enough out of PC america. You dont own the premium on what’s right, what’s true and what’s good. She’s a girl taking a tasteful yearbool pic showing her patriotism. If you cant see that then you are totally f***ed in the head. I’ve had enough of your mind control thought police agenda. Its time to stand up to the pc control freaks and strip them of position, power and the ability to shape any aspect of our culture. Merry Christmas, god bless you and f**k your mother you PC douchebags. Theres a special place in hell for all of you. Millions of people dont believe in your brand of bu**sh**.

And the morons get right in line and mindlessly spout the party line of moron-in-chief, A.K. They won’t accept the truth, even when it is pointed out to them here in simple black and white by countless veterans who have put their lives on the line to defend the flag. What a bunch of nutless sheep.

  • December 11, 2015 at 10:29 pm

    She and her mom are now suppressing the full photo and only showing the cropped image from her ankles up. Why would they do that? Because they crave attention. She is standing on an American flag. That is disgusting. And when you go to the Red Wing, don’t get the clam strips, get the clam plate with whole clams. Thanks, Norm, Foxboro class of ’70.

    Foxborough High School Principal Diana M. Myers-Pachla, who confirmed that the photo was submitted on behalf of a local business as an advertisement, said the yearbook declined the photo because the student was standing on the bottom of the flag.

    “We do not view standing on the U.S. flag as respectful or appropriate,” Myers-Pachla said in a statement. “We take respect for the United States flag very seriously as it is the most important symbolic representation of our national pride.”

    The yearbook advisor spoke to the family Wednesday, offering to consider publishing a cropped photograph, according to Myers-Pachla. However, the school also asked a local veterans agency about the photo, who told the school that publishing the photograph, as is or cropped, would be an inappropriate display of the United States flag.

      Whether or not the Principal is using this as an excuse is a whole other debate. The fact is that the artificial image is backwards, touching the floor, and has Morgan “standing” on it. That is what the Veteran Official was concerned with. It was an innocent mistake.
      Retake the photo properly and put it in the yearbook like the Principal said.

    The flag is to be respected and displayed in a place of honor. It is used as a back drop in this photo.
    The flag is hung backwards from the proper way to hang a flag vertical. Blue field should be on the left.
    The picture here does not show her standing on the flag but thinking of the flags shape and proportions, this flag is touching the ground and is under her feet or laying on the ground of floor behind, it being used as a back drop.

    School is a learning center and even a graduation booklet needs to have guide lines and not cross the line on what is right and what is wrong to do. This picture is not a protest, not free speech, it is just a picture done in poor taste and should not be allowed.

      The uncropped photo shows her standing on the flag which is clearly on the floor. It is also not a background or painted, it’s clearly a flag. Spin it however you want, it’s disrespectful to the flag to stand on it and allow it to touch the floor.

    When I saw this I knew TB would be ripshit and he should be. Are we fuckn serious here. The men and women who fight for this country have no issue with this picture and they will let these retards who TEACH our children know in due time. The honor of military service is for that girl to show her pride and love of country,this means more to any vet or active duty soldier. But TB pointed out the Facebook post that was the real issue. Obama is anti-American only a tyrant would go after our 2nd amendment. As a matter of fact the founders of this country warned us about a leader like Obama coming to power,that’s why one is dissent,and two is bear arms,amazing Franklin,Jefferson,Paine,etc saw Obama coming over 200 years ago. Tell Barack to go bow to his Saudi King,I bet everyone was ok with that. This is America we don’t bow to no one,we don’t dip our flag to another leader,and our constitution will only be taken if you let them take it. Great job TB. This is an innocent American citizen and pc police are treating her like Tokyo rose.

      December 11, 2015 at 10:35 am

      Sorry, but as a US Army veteran, I have to disagree. The full photo shows her standing on the flag that is clearly on the floor. It is disrespectful to the flag. People trample the flag as a political statement and you lose your minds, but someone tramples the flag for her yearbook photo and you trip over yourself to defend her. By your logic, Ronald Reagan must be the most anti-American tyrant of all. He signed the Brady Bill into law, which is the most sweeping gun control law ever enacted. Your simple-minded Constitutional analysis is pathetic.

I think WW2 was the last constitutional war. As an army vet should we bow to Saudi kings please enlighten us.

    In everyone’s effort to rush to be ultra-patriotic, they forget that STANDING on the flag is desecration of that symbol and is NOT patriotic. A real flag or a backdrop…it gives the impression she is standing on it)

    Love how this site tries to get everyone worked up. It wasn’t approved because it looks like she is standing on the flag which is “un-American”, They actually checked with a veterans group to make sure. The veterans not only agreed with the school, but when the school mentioned cropping the picture the veterans group said that would be wrong too. Way to not tell the whole story, turtleboysports.

      • December 14, 2015 at 12:44 pm

        It’s not acceptable because her shoes are firmly planted on the American flag! View the uncropped version of the photo and understand that even a graphic representation of the flag is to be treated the same as an actual flag.

    This is not a REAL flag – it is a background and thus does not fall under the strict code of how to hang and treat a flag. Its like having a blanket with the flag on it, of course this will hit the ground from and again. This is just an excuse to be PC. Well PC my ass…….this is AMERICA – and standing in front of this background is your right – or standing in front of any non offensive background for that matter. You cannot say Merry Christmas – We cannot sign the national Anthem – you can’t even say ” god bless you any more when someone sneezes for crying out loud! What are our boys out fighting and dying for? What about all the men and women who lost their lives over the years fighting for the country – fighting for the freedoms that are now arbitrarily being taken away by PC educators. This young lady should be able to choose any background she wants in a free country – that is what separates us from most of the world. I think we have bigger fish to fry people – its a High School Year book picture – kids are supposed to be able to express themselves – its not like she was nude or wearing a shirt with a pot plant or making gang signs – its the flag of our country! please.

      More like YOU found an excuse to get upset at what you call “PC,” or “political correctness and now you’re scrambling to deflect but instead looking like a fool.

      As an aside, if you really use the words “political” and “correctness” correctly, respect for our flag falls under that definition of political correctness.

      I’m sure if this girl “expressed herself” in a way not in line with your political beliefs you wouldn’t be so *liberal* in your tolerance of “kids are supposed to be able to “express themselves.”

      But you go ahead and rant. As a veteran I promised to put my life on the line if necessary to protect your right to do so, as well as this young lady’s right to be patriotic, even if she unwittingly did it the wrong way. As someone else said, it was easily fixable. Maybe it wasn’t caught in time.

    • Cantstopthemadness
      December 14, 2015 at 3:15 am

      well now lets see whats wrong with that image in general shall we? .. The words “flag, standard, colors, or ensign”, as used herein, shall include any flag, standard, colors, ensign, or any picture or representation of either, or of any part or parts of either, made of any substance or represented on any substance, of any size evidently purporting to be either of said flag, standard, colors, or ensign of the United States of America or a picture or a representation of either, upon which shall be shown the colors, the stars and the stripes, in any number of either thereof, or of any part or parts of either, by which the average person seeing the same without deliberation may believe the same to represent the flag, colors, standard, or ensign of the United States of America.

      When displayed either horizontally or vertically against a wall, the union should be uppermost and to the flag’s own right, that is, to the observer’s left. When displayed in a window, the flag should be displayed in the same way, with the union or blue field to the left of the observer in the street.

      The flag should never be used as wearing apparel, bedding, or drapery. It should never be festooned, drawn back, nor up, in folds, but always allowed to fall free. Bunting of blue, white, and red, always arranged with the blue above, the white in the middle, and the red below, should be used for covering a speaker’s desk, draping the front of the platform, and for decoration in general.

      The flag should never be used for advertising purposes in any manner whatsoever. It should not be embroidered on such articles as cushions or handkerchiefs and the like, printed or otherwise impressed on paper napkins or boxes or anything that is designed for temporary use and discard. Advertising signs should not be fastened to a staff or halyard from which the flag is flown.

      Did I miss anything else?

    It’s just some girl posing with a flag. There *has* to be something else going on. It can’t be just because of the flag. If it is, I will then lose all faith in human ability to reason and thought.

      The flag is on the ground and she’s standing on it! We raise hell at those people stomping on flags. Do you KNOW the Flag code?

        I looks like it’s not an actual flag, just a background. Also it doesn’t seem definite that she is stand on it, as a matter of fact it seems likely to conclude that this is a background choice a professional photography business as is consistent with my experiences with such places the background likely has the excess fabric pulled backwards out of the area in which one would stand, so in conclusion it is likely that she is not on the flag at all.

      Find the uncropped photo. The flag is all the way down on the floor and she is standing on it. Total disrespect to the flag.

      Seriously…research before commenting.

    Morgan should put the school in a real PC dilemma by posing for a new photo wearing a burka, in front of the black flag of ISIL.

    It looks like the flag is touching the ground and she could be standing on it.

      Good catch. According to the foxboro reporter , the photo was rejected because she was standing on the flag. The principal spoke with a veteran’s group and they her picture is very inappropriate.

      The Flag is touching the ground, it looks like she is standing on it, and it hung wrong. The field of blue should always be in the upper left. They way it is hung is as a sign of distress.

      Probably why a veterans group didn’t give it the OK

        The flag would be upside down in distress but I’m sure they weren’t shooting the picture Saudi Arabia.

        Uhm, the field of blue IS in the upper left. The hell are you talking about? The right most area of the photo is another white stripe.

        The way the pic is cropped here it looked like it was on the right side. Saw a wider view of the pic in the news and saw it was hung right.

        And my bad on the distress, you’re right, upside down.

    This does seem outrageous. There must be something else going on. Maybe it’s those jeans?

      Don’t be fooled! The picture was deemed offensive because she’s STANDING ON THE FLAG! That is considered an inappropriate and disrespectful display of the flag!

      It’s because she’s standing on the flag. It’s offensive to the United States, quite the opposite of what you think.

        Have you seen the whole pic and not the cropped one? She is standing on the flag. She is disrespecting the flag and the school denied it on that premise.

          find the whole pic and not the cropped one. She is standing on it.

          Apparently you haven’t seen the full image and we know who the assclown is.

    • December 14, 2015 at 12:20 pm

      She’s standing on a representation of the American flag, which according to the Flag Code is NOT patriotic. In fact, it’s disrespectful of the flag.

      “The words “flag, standard, colors, or ensign”, as used herein, shall include any flag, standard, colors, ensign, or any picture or representation of either, or of any part or parts of either, made of any substance or represented on any substance, of any size evidently purporting to be either of said flag, standard, colors, or ensign of the United States of America or a picture or a representation of either, upon which shall be shown the colors, the stars and the stripes, in any number of either thereof, or of any part or parts of either, by which the average person seeing the same without deliberation may believe the same to represent the flag, colors, standard, or ensign of the United States of America.”

      As you may know, this was a backdrop of the American flag, or better stated, a PICTURE OR REPRESENTATION of either.

      Do you condone someone standing on the American flag or letting it rest on the ground? By supporting this picture that’s exactly what you’re saying…that it’s OK to disrespect the flag by standing on it.

      That’s a very odd way to display patriotism.

      Ask yourself this, would you support the picture if it was Obama posing on the flag?
