So school officials banned all flags on vehicles — and that didn’t sit well with some students and parents.
To demonstrate they weren’t taking the flag ban lying down, about 30 folks protested at the school Wednesday, KARE-TV reported.
But they didn’t do so flying Confederate flags. Instead they showed the administration that a one-size-fits-all ban on flags can have embarrassing consequences.
With that, school officials said about 25 vehicles flying American flags were parked in the school lot, the Star Tribune added.
Don Ihrke told KARE his son “came home from school and told me that they weren’t allowed to fly the American flag on their vehicles anymore.”
So Ihrke attended the protest to support his son who was “making a stand,” he told the station.
“This is his truck and he’s proud of his truck, and he’s proud of his American flag,” he added to KARE. “He has a sister who’s a sergeant in the Marine Corps and he’s proud of his sister.”
“We just didn’t think that was right,” Ihrke told the station, regarding the ban, “by no means at all.”
