Teacher responds to student asking him not to disrespect American flag by stomping on it

Rebel Staff

A teacher in Illinois is under investigation after stomping on the American flag.

According to DailyCaller, the teacher was using the flag as a pointer and a student thought this was disrespectful. Students say this caused the teacher to get very mad and stomp on the flag.

“He talked about it being the right to do whatever he wants. That’s why it was there so he could do whatever he wants, but we have no idea why he would actually take it down and basically start all this,” a student told Tristate Homepage.

After word on the flag-stomping incident spread, angry parents and community organizers protested outside of Martinsville Junior-Senior High School. They paraded with the flag up and down front entrance.

WTHI-TV reports that the school has placed the teacher on leave for the remainder of the school year. The teacher's name isn't being released.

What a petulant brat this teacher is. This person definitely should not be teaching anyone!

Correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t the teacher’s actions a chargeable offense in the US?

Typically “progressive” teacher….as all teachers are these days, pushing their anti-government (especially Conservative or Republican) and occupy mentality. Those who fund education should be sitting in on classes and questioning students about what’s being taught in the classrooms these days.

Hey Islam, see how folks in rational countries confront being offended? Non-violence in action. Learn something.

This “teacher” should not be an educator. Forget about leave. Release for insubordination. (Getting mad and stomping)

Let’s see what the liberal left would do if he/she/ it were in control. Place the teacher on leave for the rest of the school year (that’s about a month) with full salary and benefits Send he/she/it to anger management. Spread the story he/she/it were over worked . Tell the press he/she/it was using the fag as a pointer to teach the children to honor the flag. Hire he/she/it back with a pay raise OH YAH Tell the parents to take it easy as he/she/it is under stress. (or in other words go to hell)

The reason why nobody abuses the Canadian flag as an act of protest is because they know it just wouldn’t get much of a rise out of Canadians….Americans are different.

No anti-Canadian-teacher stories?

That Teacher was being VERY DISRESPECTFUL – I don’t want to know who they are but, being put on leave IS THE RIGHT THING to do.
