UC Irvine Students Reverse Ban on the American Flag
Students at the University of California, Irvine last night voted down a resolution that would have banned the American flag on part of campus. But the fight isn't over yet.
The controversial resolution called for the removal of all flags from a common area of the student government offices to make it a more "inclusive space."
The resolution also declared that "flags not only serve as symbols of patriotism or weapons for nationalism, but also construct cultural mythologies and narratives that in turn charge nationalistic sentiments."
Campus Reform correspondent Lauren Clark appeared on "Fox and Friends Weekend" and explained that even though the student government's five-person executive cabinet vetoed the proposal, it now goes back to the student government council.
If they were to repeat their 6-4 vote - with two students abstaining - the resolution would be passed. So the flag ban is still very much a possibility.
Clark revealed that many UC Irvine students are unhappy with the possible ban and have organized a protest for Monday.
"One of the sentences in the bill says that if a student is offended by any item in the main student lobby, they have the right to take it down," Clark revealed. "Well, what message does this send to students? That instead of discussing this like the civil adults that we are that it must automatically be banned?"
Just how fragile and sensitive are today's college students? Tucker Carlson wondered.
"We are adults, we are able to discuss these issues. But for some reason, administrators or those in student government feel the need to coddle us and make sure we're not offended by anything, even though these are real issues that we need to discuss," Clark said. "And college is absolutely the atmosphere where these conversations need to be taking place."
