University Pulls Back Ban On Confederate Flag, Swastika

Posted By Staff

Date: December 16th, 2015

univKUTZTOWN, Pennsylvania – An eastern Pennsylvania university has pulled back a plan to bar students from displaying what it called “distasteful” and “demeaning” decorations such as the Confederate flag and swastikas in residence halls and common areas.

Kutztown University said in a statement on its website Tuesday that university lawyers asked officials to refrain from implementing the proposed decorations policy because of concerns about its constitutionality.

Due to the legal review, the university said “references to any specific content, such as symbols, will be removed from the policy.”

Instead, officials said they would “educate students and other members of the community so they will understand the historical and modern context for these symbols.”  More

‘It’s political correctness run amok’

Posted By Staff

Date: December 13th, 2015

stormRosenburg – A Texas 7th grader said he was forced to cover up his T-shirt depicting a wartime soldier holding a gun.

Specifically, that would be a Stormtrooper holding a “rebel blaster” on a “Star Wars” T-shirt.

“It’s political correctness run amok,” the student’s father, Joe Southern, told KTRK. “You’re talking about a “Star Wars” T-shirt, a week before the biggest movie of the year comes out. It has nothing to do with guns or making a stand. It’s just a “Star Wars” shirt.”

For clarification, the “rebel blaster” is not an actual weapon. It only exists in the Star Wars universe.  More
