On May 6, Fox News started an unofficial poll on their website. The poll was created following the California incident in which several high school students who were wearing shirts displaying the U.S. flag were sent home from school after refusing to turn their shirts inside out. The poll question: Should the American flag be banned in America? The possible answers include:
- No. This is a lame decision. Teach the kids what the flag means, instead of banning it.
- Yes. The safety of students comes first.
- Not sure, but of all things to ban, the American flag would seem the least 'incendiary.'
- Other (post a comment)
As of yesterday, over 1.1 million votes had been cast. At that time, 54% of the votes supported banning the U.S. flag while 31% voted no.
Move On and other liberal groups have been twittering recently urging people to go to the site and vote to ban the flag.
If you'd like to vote, please go to the Fox News poll and share your opinion.
