GOP Bill Defunds Schools That Ban American Flag

Funny, but we can't seem to recall schools getting enough money to provide the services they're supposed to provide from any other entity with a Flag.


Also known as sanity.

Via Washington Examiner:
Dozens of House Republicans have introduced legislation that would prevent federal funds from being used to fund schools and colleges that ban the American flag.
The bill was introduced the same week that Hampshire College in Massachusetts decided to remove the American flag from the campus.

Initially, the college lowered the flag to protest President-elect Trump’s election victory, and student protesters burned the flag the next day. The flag was removed entirely as a form of further protest, and eventually raised again Dec. 2.

That started a petition asking asking that federal funds be removed for any college that takes down the flag. And on Friday, Rep. Mike Turner, R-Ohio, and 52 other House Republicans put forward legislation to accomplish that.

Thank You Wash Ex and Zip.
