Charles Schmid: Americans have right to honor any flag

Americans have right to honor any flag

America has changed so much that I sit back and look at an America I no longer know. How did it come to this?

We as Americans have rights that are supposed to be upheld. In the new America discrimination is everywhere, but many try to hide it. A student can’t wear something on his clothes like a flag.

Drive down the street and see these so-called “rainbow” flags — where is the color white? No longer can you fly certain flags at your own home, because it might upset people. If you don’t like something don’t look, do not discriminate.

Don’t others see what is happening around here? We try to erase history everywhere. Everything to do with God is taken off buildings, and battlefield flags and other things are being removed. No longer do they teach the Pledge of Allegiance in schools. Students at colleges take down the American flag.

What has happened to America? No matter what flag you like, it is your right as an American to wear that flag on your clothes. A flag at your home is your right. It is so absurd how America has changed.

How about we have a parade of rights? In America we have the right to wear whatever, the right to believe in God, the right to believe whatever, the right to honor any flag whatsoever.

Stop all the discrimination. Dress any way you wish, have any flag you want — in the end it is your right. Agree or disagree, that is your right, but don’t discriminate.
