Levin: ‘This Is A Very Sick Nation,’ ‘A Nation In Decline’

Mark Levin weighed in Friday on a court ruling in favor of a California school, which forced students wearing American flag t-shirts on Cinco de Mayo to turn them inside out.

“Because the school officials were responsible for the safety of plaintiffs on a day-to-day basis, the court finds they did not violate the First Amendment by asking plaintiffs to turn their shirts inside out inside out to avoid physical harm,” Levin opened.

“This is a very sick nation,” Levin concludes:

“It’s sick, because the Statists…are turning this country upside down.” The court system, bureaucracies, and elected officials have all “run amok,” he says: “And, they have way too much power.”

“It’s just a nation in decline; it just is.”

“What is happening here?,” Levin asks:

“The propaganda when it comes to the environmental agenda - with the phony Al Gore movie being shown in thousands and thousands of schools.  History going untaught.  All kinds of liberal social and cultural policies?  Yes.  Political Correctness?  Of course.

“The American flag? No - because it might cause violence it might piss people off.”

Levin’s comments raise an interesting question:

If it’s legitimate for schools to force students to hide their beliefs because displaying those beliefs might bring them physical harm by upsetting others, what other beliefs should schools force students to hide “for their own good?”

If schools can mandate a “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy for patriotic students, can it do the same with Muslim students who wear hijabs, or pro-life students who wear “Choose Life” t-shirts - or Christian students who wear crosses? Read more "Right News, Right Now"
