THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF CALIFORNIA - This site is dedicated to exposing the continuing Marxist Revolution in California and the all around massive stupidity of Socialists, Luddites, Communists, Fellow Travelers and of Liberalism in all of its ugly forms.

"It was a splendid population - for all the slow, sleepy, sluggish-brained sloths stayed at home - you never find that sort of people among pioneers - you cannot build pioneers out of that sort of material. It was that population that gave to California a name for getting up astounding enterprises and rushing them through with a magnificent dash and daring and a recklessness of cost or consequences, which she bears unto this day - and when she projects a new surprise the grave world smiles as usual and says, "Well, that is California all over."

GOP wants constitutional amendment to prevent banning the American flag

Accompanied by fellow GOP lawmakers and veterans,
State Sen. Janet Nguyen, R-Garden Grove, announces a proposed
constitutional amendment to block publicly funded universities
from banning the American flag.

Guess how Democrats will vote

(USA Today)  -  When a California college student council banned the display of the American flag from a common area in the student government offices, the action was quickly denounced by the student body president and a higher student panel overturned it two days later.
But fearing that anti-American sentiment could reappear at University of California, Irvine or elsewhere, GOP lawmakers and veterans on Monday proposed a constitutional amendment that would block California’s publicly funded colleges and universities from banning the American flag.
“As an immigrant who came to the United States in search of freedom and democracy, I could not stand before you today as a state senator if it weren’t for the ideals of that American flag and what it represents,” said Sen. Janet Nguyen, R-Garden Grove, who called for protecting the nation’s flag.

It’s unclear how far her proposal would advance. The amendment needs a two-thirds vote of the Democratic-controlled state Legislature to appear on the November 2016 ballot and so far lacked bipartisan support.
The debate erupted on the Southern California campus with nearly 30,000 students when someone removed a U.S. flag that hung on a wall in a common area of the student government suite. An anonymous note said the flag shouldn’t be displayed in the lobby.
Six undergraduate members of a legislative council voted last Thursday to ban displaying national flags, including the American flag. In voting on the resolution, the student council noted that the American flag has been flown in times of “colonialism and imperialism.”
It went on to say that “freedom of speech, in a space that aims to be as inclusive as possible, can be interpreted as hate speech.”
The resolution was authored by student Matthew Guevara of the university’s social ecology school. Guevara did not respond to email requests for comment.
