Anti-Flag Flap

Students at a school in the Republik of California were suspended for displaying American Flags during a senior class group photo

Camille Wiles, 17, said Latino students wanted to display Mexican flags in previous years, and teachers told her the school wanted to prevent any problems by banning all flags.

The students said school officials told them the class picture wouldn't be sold, and none would be taken next year.

After hearing the students describe how they pulled more flags out of their pockets as soon as teachers came up behind them and took them away, Gingrich said: "You guys are pretty persistent."

He added: "Anti-flag control. That's fairly Looney Tunes."

What is this world coming to?
