UPDATE To Earlier Post Re Colorado School Hanging of Saudi Flag Higher Than American Flag


As a follow up to an earlier post entitled, “Colorado School Comes Under Fire for Hanging Saudi Flag Higher Than American Flag, Bauder Elementary school has reinstated the American flag to its permanent position, above the flags of other nations.


The rationale behind flying flags of other nations besides the American flag is that Bauder Elementary School is an international school.


GREELEY REPORT

“…According to a parent Bauder Elementary switched to become an ‘international school’ two years ago, and the flags representing the countries of origin for various students were hung in this U.S. school.  These students may be from other nations, but their education is funded by U.S. citizens and U.S. tax dollars.  Following is a list of questions submitted to Poudre Schools.  Greeley Report will publish the responses as they are obtained…”

Below are two photographs of the flags as they are now displayed in Bauder Elementary School.  The photographs were taken from two different angles.  As you can see, the American flag is in the center.

What is up with all of these international schools?


International school or not, this is the United States of America and as indicated above, the Bauder Elementary School is funded by U.S. citizens and U.S. tax dollars.  Not to mention, the students are attending an American school in the United States of America.  Therefore, the American flag that should be on display is the American flag.


To hell with PC.
