Teacher Stomps on the American Flag In Front of His Entire Class

No class.

A North Carolina teacher stomped on the American flag in front of his entire class, to allegedly make a point about free speech.

The Washington Times reports:

A parent’s Facebook picture showing Lee Francis standing over a crumpled flag in his class at Massey Hill Classical High School has gone viral with more than 10,000 shares, The Fayetteville Observer reported. Sara Taylor, whose child attends Massey Hill but is not enrolled in Mr. Francis’ class, wrote that the teacher first asked students for a lighter or scissors to destroy the flag.

“When there were no scissors he took the flag and stomped all over it. He is saying this was teaching First Amendment rights,” Ms. Taylor wrote. “I called the Principal Dr. [Pamela] Adams and asked her why he couldn’t have talked about it and not actually disrespect the flag like that and she completely stood up for him,” Ms. Taylor added.

The school shouldn’t be defending him, they should be firing him.

By stomping on the flag, this teacher missed the entire point about free speech. He failed to demonstrate the individual responsibility that comes with freedom. Just because you can say or do something, doesn’t mean you should. Stomping on the flag doesn’t make you a “hands-on” teacher, it makes you a jerk.
