"students have been disciplined for displaying the Confederate flag"
As if that were a bad thing?

"Suffield High School Principal Donna Hayward said the Confederate flag is not allowed at the school because it is considered a symbol of hate".

Nonsense, that flag was a banner that a people gathered behind to retaliate against an ever increasing encroachment of government oppressing states rights. The slave issue didn't come about until a couple of years after the war started. There were plenty of slave owners in the northern states.

The real story about the Civil War was the Northern industrial giants that controlled Washington feared the ever increasing power and influence the steadily growing oligarchy of wealthy agricultural barons of the south. Just like today, whoever throws the most money around in Washington controls it.

the confederate flag is a part of us history and should not be disparaged. a lot of us have had family members on both sides in that bloody conflict and we should honor their memories.

The Confederate flag is a symbol of state rights. The right to join the Union and the right to leave the Union. Do the history teachers in the high school know this?

YO LIBERALS ! GO TO THE SUFFIELD LIBRARY AND YOU WILL FIND OUT THAT THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT WAS UP TO ITS SHANNIGANS IN THE 1860'S JUST LIKE TODAY ! NO WONDER WHY THE SOUTH WANTED OUT: THE SOUTHERN STATES WOULD BECOME THE RESOURCE OF $$$$$$$. JUST RECENTLY THE LAKOTA INDIAN NATION IN SOUTH DAKOTA DECLARED ALL TREATIES WITH THE US GOVERNMENT NULL AND VOID. THEY HAD ENOUGH OF THE HYPOCRISY OF WASHINGTON DC. PRESIDENT ANDREW JACKSON FORCED THE ENTIRE CHEROKEE NATION TO LEAVE NORTH CAROLINA AND MARCH IN THE DEAD OF WINTER TO OKLAHOMA: MANY DIED ALONG THE WAY. THE CONFEDERATE FLAG IS A
SYMBOL OF STATES' RIGHTS OVER THE SOCIALIST REGIME. MANY BLACK AMERICANS FOUGHT FOR THE CONFEDERACY, IT IS DOCUMENTED. I AM A GRADUATE OF ST. ALPHONSUS COLLEGE, SUFFIELD, CT; NOW THE HOSPITALITY INSTITUTE.

I agree that the Northern States were out for $$$$$$$$$$; war is profit for business. The Confederate flag is a symbol of our background; we are proud that we are descendents of the Confederate States of America. We are proud that we believe in moral values, marriage is between man and women and that unborn children have unalienable rights. Why be ashamed that we are white Christains ? It is sad that many think that we must forget our heritage. That is the same thinking in Europe: forget your religion and culture, embrace diversity !. Many are being taught about the one world government. I am proud that my ancestors came from Germany, Ireland and Italy; they learned English and were happy to be part of this great nation: USA.
