Students at UC Irvine have voted for a more “inclusive space” by banning the American flag on part of the campus.

I know quite a few people who go to UCI that are not happy with this. Nothing like feeling excluded by an American flag while attending an American public university that is funded by the American Government.

Absurdity. Thoughts?

How can they even do that? Like OP says this is a public university isn't this a free speech issue?

Absurd.

If I went to UCI I'd just walk around campus with an American Flag and a vintage 18th century drum and a three corner hat and be like try and stop me.

The actual article says a student organization voted to ban all flags from one area and that the decision hasn't been implemented. The US flag just happens to be one of the flags that would be removed (as well as state flags, etc.). Hardly the biggest thing to happen at UC Irvine.

There is no way to discuss whether a public University can ban the use of the American flag with out it turning into a political discussion.

8. You may not discuss race, religion, politics, or sexual-orientation on these forums.
