The UC Davis student senate has made it optional to display the American flag at its meetings, stirring up controversy on campus and conservative blogs.

Senate Bill 76 passed Thursday, said Michael Gofman, a student senator who opposed the change.

The bill amends bylaws that required the United States flag to be on display at every senate meeting of the Associated Students, University of California, Davis. The revised bylaws give senate members the option to petition for the display of the flag 24 hours before each meeting. The ASUCD senate pro tem ultimately has authority to decide whether the U.S. flag will be displayed, according to the revision.

The resolution says that since “the concept of United States of America and patriotism is different for every individual, it should not be compulsory that the flag is in view at all times during Senate meetings.”

    Cut off federal funds to UC Davis. If you don’t honor the country’s flag, you shouldn’t get the support American taxpayers provide.

  • gvette says:

    They received $391 million in federal funds. They don’t like our flag, stop the funding.

  • Walter Flatt says:

    THEY SHOULD BE ASHAMED TO TAKE ONE DOLLAR OF THE TAX PAYERS MONEY AND IF THEY REFUSE TO SUPPORT OUR FLAG, THEY SHOULD BE KICKED OUT OF SCHOOL, IT IS PAST TIME THAT WE THE CITIZENS OF THE USA STOOD UP FOR OUR COUNTRY. GET RID OF THE ONES THAT DO NOT.

    YOU ALL AND THIS GOVERNMENT HAD BETTER WORRY ABOUT THE MUSLIMS HERE AT HOME.

    PUBLIC LAW 414, PAGE 2, SECTION 212, WAS PASSED IN 1952 THAT BANS ALL PEOPLE TRYING TO DESTROY OUR COUNTY, AND MUSLIMS QUALIF TO BE DEPORTED. READ THE QURAN, THEIR BIBLE.

    COULD IT BE THAT OBAMA HAS SET US UP FOR HIM TO LEAD A MUSLIM INVASION OF OUR COUNTRY? READ THEIR BIBLE, THE QURAN.

    IF NOT,

    WHY ARE THERE 5 MUSLIM CAMPS IN N. VIRGINA, CLOSE TO DC.

    WHY TRY AND BUY UP ALL AMMO AND TAKE OUR GUNS.

    WHY ALLOW IN EXCESS OF 36 MUSLIM CAMPS. (PERHAPS HUNDREDS)

    (BUILD A FEMA CAMP IN EVERY STATE? SOME STATE HAS MORE THAN ONE. BUILT AND SUPPORTED BY YOUR TAX MONEY.

    WHY, WHILE IN OFFICE, DID HE SET HIS CABINET WITH MOSTLY MUSLIMS.

    WHY, WAS HILLIARY’S TOP AIDE A RADICAL MUSLIM,

    LAST WHY, DID OBAMA SEND BILLIONS TO HIS MUSLIM FRIENDS.

    Yeah, and any organization that receives TAXPAYER DOLLARS really doesn’t have much of a choice.

    And any ‘college student’ sucking up TAXPAYER DOLLARS in either scholarships or Grants that thinks the Flag is optional should OPT OUT of the government financing and repay every dime plus 22.75% interest.

  • the whistler says:

    Yeah….these are very difficult ‘Concepts’. Patriotism is love for or devotion to one’s Country. The Flag is the historical symbol of the United States Of America. The USA functions in accordance with the United States Constitution.
    So how in the world do precise definitions of what ‘Patriotism’ and the ‘United States of America’ result in some pseudo-intellectual ‘Conceptual’ approach to patriotism and what the flag symbolizes????? The Left is intellectually dishonest and cannot admit that they hate true patriots, everything the USA stands for, our brave soldiers, and anything else that has to do with obeying the laws and respecting the religious rights of all people ( not just the religion saveur de jour ,which at this time is Islam …PS it’s not even a religion it is a political theocracy at the minimum). Most important they have no concept of what it means to be a citizen and the responsibilities that come with being a citizen ( hint…it’s not curling up in a ball and whining every time something doesn’t go your way…or rioting because you want to stop some one else from exercising their right to free speech).
