  Welcome to America where all displays of patriotism are strictly forbidden, for your 'safety'
cbs4denver.com - Tensions Change Dress Code At Local Middle School: "Students at Shaw Heights Middle School are no longer allowed to wear anything that's patriotic, including camouflage pants, because they have become a political symbol for a version of patriotism.

'It upsets me that we cannot support our troops, the military,' said Kirsten Golgart, an eighth grader who was told she'd be suspended if she didn't change her clothes. 'We can't support our country. If we're American, I think we should be proud to be an American.'

A letter went home to parents last week that explained for student safety, no clothes were allowed with political messages or flags of any sort.

Myla Shepherd, the principal, said that tensions over the immigration issue were apparent when more than 20 students came to school wearing camouflage jackets and pants, apparently to show what they call their patriotism and American pride."
