Oh, my the precious unique snowflakes might be harmed by seeing….. the flag of the United States hung on certain parts of the University of California-Irvine campus. Horrors! Presumably the flag of the Palestinians or Cuba wouldn’t cause a stir.
At this point, I’m assuming various UC campuses troll us by trying to out-crazy each other so they can brag about rebelling to their formerly-rebellious parents/grandparents. That’s the only “rational” justification I can think of for such irrationality. These delicate babies, brought up on self-esteem and individuality will be the first to be chomped up during any Apocalypse. http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2015/03/06/students-at-uc-irvine-vote-to-ban-american-flag/?intcmp=trending
Others note that for student leaders of a supposedly good college, these people lack basic grammar skills. http://davidthompson.typepad.com/davidthompson/2015/03/its-raping-my-eyes.html
For some, including this English teacher, learning English grammar is just…. wait for it… Racist. http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2015/03/proper_english_grammar_is_now_racist_.html
