Washington PostFor a while — a very short while – it looked as if the American flag had seen its last days on the campus of the University of California at Irvine.

On March 3, the Associated Students of the University of California passed a resolution that would ban national flags from the lobby and offices of student government, according to a statment posted on UCI News.

Penned by Matthew Guevara, a student in the school of social ecology, the resolution stated: “Designing a culturally inclusive space aims to remove barriers that create undue effort and separation by planning and designing spaces that enable everyone to participate equally and confidentially.”

“The American flag has been flown in instances of colonialism and imperialism,” the resolution continued. “Flags not only serve as symbols of patriotism or weapons for nationalism, but also construct cultural mythologies and narratives that in turn charge nationalistic sentiments.”

The resolution noted that in certain spaces “freedom of speech” can be interpreted as “hate speech.”

The measure passed with a 6 to 4 vote in the student legislative council that included two abstentions, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The ban didn’t last long.

Four days after its birth, the radical push to remove national symbols from student government facilities was dead. On Saturday, student leaders vetoed the resolution, according to the Times.

A student who spoke with Breitbart News on condition of anonymity that she heard a member of the ASUCI discussing “the [American] flag and how it triggered people.” She then said she believed a major line of reasoning behind the legislation to remove the flag could have been a “precautionary step” to prevent a trigger situation where if someone is an “illegal citizen or [they] have citizenship issues, it makes them feel bad.

The American flag had hung on a wall in the student government suite,according to the Associated Press. Recently, the AP reported, someone placed it on the desk of Reza Zomorrodian, council president and head of the executive cabinet, “with an anonymous note saying it shouldn’t be in the lobby.”

OK this story happened a couple days ago and we didn’t even bother with it because it was honestly too easy. At this point the hippies have completely abandoned any attempt to be taken seriously. I’m convinced that they’re just doing whatever it takes to draw attention to themselves in any way they can. Because no one in their right mind is actually offended by the American flag. If they really wanna dedicate themselves to banning flags then go after this one:

flag-vs-rag

I fucking hate seeing rednecks fly that loser flag in a vain attempt to stick it to Obama. The Confederate flag is basically the same thing as flying the flag of ISIS. It was an imaginary country that never existed filled with dirty traitors who caused the deadliest war in American history because they didn’t wanna pay their laborers. Fuck them.

Here’s the thing, they don’t really believe any of this garbage. They’re just doing it to make you mad, and I’m not buying into the outrage. They’re no different than internet trolls. These are the six who voted to ban the flag:

Obviously they don’t think America is a racist imperial country. After all, they’re living the life of luxury in America. They’re tasting the sweet delicious fruit of American freedom. They represent a vast array of nationalities, which means at some point in their ancestry someone in their family left wherever they are from and came to America because it was a superior way of living. They represent everything that is AMAZING about America. Our diversity, our freedom of speech, our affluence, our higher education. They fucking LOVE America.

But unfortunately for them they’re going through this whole “campus radical who hates American imperialism” phase. Lots of kids go through it. Unfortunately they took it one step too far and now when you Google any of their names for the rest of their lives this will come up. Should be fun for them to look for a job!! Maybe they can move back to some nice third world country and find a job there peddling fish or something. Nah, they’re not gonna do that. They love America way too much and so do I.

    the CONFEDERATED FLAG IS NOT A RAG! IT IS A FLAG THAT SHOULD BE RESPECTED!!! in fact the only reason you hippies won is because in Vicksburg we had a bad strategy and un-loyal soldiers! SO SHUT YOUR MOUTH YOU… you know!

    Just saying but we don’t display the southern cross, the stars and bars, the stainless banner, or the bloody banner to “stick it to obama/the man” you asshat. We display it out of respect for a group of valiant men who honestly thought a hostile force was coming to lay waste to their livelihoods and as a result shed the blood of their own country men and died beneath those flags. Also here’s a few things i bet you didn’t know I bet you didn’t know
    1. The war was caused by northern greed
    2. Lincoln was far from the great emancipator he actually
    was in the process of passing a law that would make it impossible for the federal government to abolish slavery
    3. The south didn’t even want a war they reacted to northern aggression
    4. The south could have won the war after the first recorded battle known as the first battle of bull run/manassas

    I went to Humboldt State university in the 90’s. My duly elected “Student Council” voted – and this isn’t a joke – for Northern California, Oregon, and Washington State, to secede from the Union. Kids these days! (Even us liberals at the college were saying, “Please don’t make this asinine statement public, I GO to this school!) Too late. It hit the media, but was laughed off by a mere 20 million people or so. Tchhh – kids.

      The Cascadia movement is still a thing, funnily enough; they’ve even roped in people from British Columbia to join in. I doubt the U.S. and Canada will ever Balkanize but if they do that’d probably be one of the post-split states.

        The rest of the country would be better off with them gone.

        I vote they do this and we let them.

    That flag is NOT the flag of the Confederacy, just FYI.

        This is the actual flag of the Confederacy; not too different from the US flag of the time.

          The Confederate Battle Flag is by far the most famous though, and it was the one which became synonymous with the reactionaries in the Civil Rights movement. Ignorance or not, it is the flag that the vast majority of people, here and abroad think of when you mention the South and the Civil War.

          And as he says, it’s the one you see people stick on their cars today, so it’s the one that should be shown and discussed.

          Why they picked the Stars and Bars, who knows. Caused quite the confusion on the battlefield.

            There were many Confederate battle flags.

            Frankly, after the behavior I’ve witnessed the past two or three years, I’m wondering if maybe the south didn’t have it right, after all.

          Bubbles! I was so concerned about you when Michael passed. I hope you found another capable male with lots of $$$ to take care of your needs. Stay away from the Jesus Juice my friend!

    ” I’m convinced that they’re just doing whatever it takes to draw attention to themselves in any way they can.”

    Holy shit if that isn’t the pot calling the kettle black.

    America is built on revolution, acknowledging something more diverse than a flag is revolutionary. Your politics in racism are as ancient as Lincoln himself.

    Boo hoo, turtle tears

      This is the USA. If you do not like seeing the US flag, then you should probably get over it or move. There is absolutely nothing political or racist in that sentiment. I challenge you to go to any other country and tell them you do not approve of them flying their flag in certain places. See how far that gets you.

        Nationalism is one of the contributing factors to how fucked up the world is.
