Dad lays into principal who apologized for ‘racist’ pro-police flag carried proudly by football team

Speaking on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” late Friday, one New Jersey father shared some tough words for the spineless high school principal who’d felt compelled to apologize for a Blue Lives Matter flag. Oh, the horror.

That parent, Brian Nashel, is the father of a student who attends Millburn High School, and according to him, Principal William Miron recently sent an email to parents in which he not only apologized for a high school yearbook photo that showed students holding up the Blue Lives Matter flag but then called the flag racist.

Nashel told FNC host Tucker Carlson that while he somewhat understands why Miron felt compelled to apologize, what with the prevalence of cancel culture, what’s “truly appalling” is the principal’s decision to also label the flag racist.

“I see what’s happening with cancel culture, and I see what’s happening to anyone who speaks out and dares to veer off of the carefully constructed script. … But what really seemed appalling to me actually much more so than a photograph of football players holding an American flag and a ‘thin blue line’ flag … was the fact that it seemed that Dr. Miron was reacting without even thinking about the kids,” he said.

“So he’s calling the flag that these boys are holding racist, so essentially he’s saying these boys are out there waving a racist flag around without any regard to what that might mean to the boys’ images or the boys’ futures, now to be branded in such a way.”

The negative branding inherent in cancer culture has ruined many lives, yet that didn’t seem to trouble Miron too much when he chose to pull his stunt. The crazy thing about it, Nashel added, is that nobody had complained when the photo was actually snapped.

“I was actually at that football game that day, and I remember they were honoring the DARE program, and they came out and it was a wonderful night. … There seemed to be a lots of town and school unity that night,” he explained.

“Clearly at that time nobody had an objection to holding an American Flag or a ‘thin blue line’ flag so when I see that level of hypocrisy, it did inspire me to write a letter.”

That letter is what had caught Fox News’ attention and inspired the network to invite Nashel onto Carlson’s show to tell his side of the story.

“As a parent and an American, I find your letter to not only be condescending and offensive but also spurious, misguided, and ironically intolerant of anyone holding views which do not conform to the currently prescribed and carefully constructed language of wokeness,” the letter had reportedly read.

Sadly, the “language of wokeness” is perniciously prevalent throughout society, especially in regards to the police and the Blue Lives Matter flag.

Just earlier this year, San Francisco’s police chief banned his officers from wearing face masks depicting the Blue Lives Flag, aka the “thin blue line” flag.

But it gets worse. Three years ago, a Florida homeowner’s association forced the daughter of a police officer to remove the Blue Lives Matter flag from her porch after a neighbor issued the same complaint as Miron that the flag is somehow racist.

View the flag below:

Just like with the flag at Millburn High School, which students and staff alike apparently had no issue with (save for Miron), the flag outside the Florida home seen above was also deemed by most people (the sane ones) as being just fine.


Note what the latter Twitter user wrote: “The HOA and other people that see it as racist are the ones that keep racism alive.”

Is this true?

It does seem to make sense. After all, so-called “dog whistles” are designed to only be seen or heard by racists. Yet the ones who wind up seeing or hearing them always turn out to be the ones who virtue-signal the loudest about race. Hmm.
