Washington School Bans Pro-Police Flag, Claims it’s ‘Political,’ but Permits BLM and LGBT Messages

A teacher in Washington state was ordered to take down a pro-police flag in her classroom over claims it is a “political symbol,” while messages supporting Black Lives Matter and LGBT pride flags are allowed in the school.

“They told her that it’s controversial to have that flag up. That it makes kids and staff feel unsafe, which to me, that does not make sense at all,” the teacher’s brother, Chris Sutherland, told “The Jason Rantz Show” on KTTH of the situation.

Sutherland is a former police officer with the Marysville Police Department in Washington, and his sister had hung the “Thin Blue Line” flag to support him in her classroom at Marysville Middle School. The flag was also surrounded by photos of her brother.

What is Class?
==============

"Class never runs scared. It is sure-footed and confident in the
knowledge that you can meet life head on and handle whatever comes
along."

"Jacob had it. Esau didn't. Symbolically, we can look to Jacob's
wrestling match with the angel. Those who have class have wrestled
with their own personal angel and won a victory that marks them
thereafter."

"Class never makes excuses. It takes its lumps and learns from past
mistakes."

"Class is considerate of others. It knows that good manners are
nothing more than a series of small sacrifices."

"Class bespeaks an aristocracy that has nothing to do with ancestors
or money. The most affluent blueblood can be totally without class
while the descendant of a Welsh miner may ooze class from every pore."

"Class never tries to build itself up by tearing others down. Class is
already up and need not strive to look better by making others look
worse."

"Class can "walk with kings and keep its virtue and talk with crowds
and keep the common touch." Everyone is comfortable with the person
who has class because he is comfortable with himself."

"If you have class you don't need much of anything else. If you don't
have it, no matter what else you have, it doesn't make much
difference." ~Ann Landers

  1. Take anything political, even quasi-political out of the classroom. I’m not in agreement with the BLM, Antifa, or police flags being up in the classroom. Seems like a lot of today’s battles have to do with classrooms and school boards. Something’s amiss.
