Do something stupid, get punished for it. That’s exactly what happened to an America-hating teacher.
In North Carolina a teacher was attempting to make a statement about freedom of speech and the 1st Amendment. To demonstrate this, he took an American flag, put it on the ground, and then stomped on it. He even asked the class for a lighter and scissors.
Here’s the report.

But America is getting the last laugh because the teacher is now on leave.
After a photo of him with his foot on the flag was posted on Facebook, Francis was informed by the school district’s human resources department that he would be placed on paid leave until an investigation is complete.
“It’s really disconcerting,” he said. “My question to everyone is, who is entitled to freedom of speech? Does everyone have access to freedom of speech? It’s unfortunate that all this has happened.”
Francis said he is scheduled to meet with Cumberland County Schools system officials Thursday to discuss the incident.
“Clearly, there are other ways to teach First Amendment rights without desecrating the flag,” superintendent Frank Till said in a statement released Tuesday.
Damn straight. All this is doing is potentially breeding more anti-American thoughts within our own country. And at this crucial turning point in American history, that is the last thing we need.
I’m GLAD this teacher is on leave and I’m calling on the administration of that school district to FIRE his sorry a**. Who’s with me!?
