‘This is WRONG!’ School district, afraid of the Confederate flag, bans Stars & Stripes too!

flag-banThe good folks in Dickson County, Tennessee are about to find out that sometimes the cure can be worse than the disease.

After being confronted with the recent controversy surrounding the Confederate flag, the Dickson County School District decided to ban all flags and banners — including the American flag, according to the local Fox affiliate WHBQ.

Not only did school leaders decide this was the smart thing to do, but Dickson County Director of Student Services Steve Sorrells stands by the stunning decision.

“While this was not necessarily an attack on the American flag, there were some other issues we’re trying to address,” Sorrells said. “It’s not an unpatriotic act, by any means, because we have a number of ways in which students do learn how to be patriotic and express American pride.”

Not necessarily an attack on the American flag?

Even students are smart enough to know an asinine decision when they see one. Angry senior Arianna Heisler told My Fox Memphis that the ban compromises her right to free speech.

“I just think that’s a right,” Heisler said. “It’s freedom of expression, and I don’t think you should be able to take that away from us.”

School leaders say they haven’t had any issues, but odds are, they’ll soon reconsider the ban — right after the American people weigh in.

The reaction on social media shows users are in agreement with the student, with one emphasizing, “This is WRONG!”

Here’s a small sampling of the responses from Twitter:
