Principal shuts down paper, spits on Constitution

Shasta High School Volcano newspaperYou are:
A high school principal who just learned your student-run newspaper is featuring a burning American flag on its cover and a bonus editorial supporting flag burning inside.

Do you:
A. Engage your student body in a spirited debate on the finer points of free speech and freedom of the press?
B. Wuss out and re-print the edition, removing the controversial content?
C. Pitch a hissy and shut down the paper forever?

Well, if you’re Shasta High School Principal Milan Woollard, you choose Option C.
::: tard :::

A shame really — not because the Volcano was even a decent high school rag or anything but because Mr. Principal got served up a golden opportunity to have a meaningful debate about a real hot-button issue, which might have, you know — like, umm, help kids learn and stuff?

Which is, you know — like, umm, what he’s paid to do?

Oh but we do lurve us some flag controversy in America!!

Whether some schmoe is flaunting his right to fly a ginormous symbol of racism, or a kid’s rainbow-y present to his folks causing some crazy Kansans to see gay flags in their sleep, or a bunch of wannabe baby journos testing that little clause we like to call the First Amendment by torching Old Glory (on paper) — you just gotta be prepared for someone to get his panties in a big ol’ bunch!

Welcome to Knee-Jerk Reactiontown, Mr. Woollard! Hope you like it here.

    It’s funny how it’s okay to fight for freedom in other countries yet it’s not okay to exercise it here…

    Yeah, the kid looks crazed, and the white-boy Afro is way too bushy… Someone needs a chill pill and a stylist…
