Sheriff Smith Stands Strong

School Backs Down from Ban on American Celebration After Protests - Todd Starnes - Page 1: "The sun was just beginning to rise over the Rocky Mountains, but Sheriff Justin Smith was already awake. He was standing outside Fort Collins High School – shivering in the frigid cold.

It was 12 degrees. Snow was falling. But Mr. Smith, wearing his dress blues, stood resolute, waving an American flag.

The sheriff of Larimer County, Colorado had come to school Tuesday to send a message to those responsible for educating the county’s children. The sheriff was not in a good mood.

He was standing in the winter snow to protest the school’s decision to ban a celebration of American patriotism.

The student council had wanted to designate a day during Spirit Week to celebrate the red, white & blue. The young people called it “’Merica Monday.” But the school turned down their request."
RTWT. This was the talk of the week at nearby Liberty Common charter High School -- where Sheriff Smith would never be needed to do something like this ... because it's run by Americans and not Communist "Universalists".
