    13 Student Refuses To Wear LGBT ‘Rainbow Poppy’, Suspended For “Hate Speech”

    Student Refuses To Wear LGBT ‘Rainbow Poppy’, Suspended For “Hate Speech”

    A 17-year-old student refused to wear an LGBT ‘rainbow poppy’ then distributes a poster giving her reasons so her school suspended her for “hate speech.”

    The Canadian Legion has actually trademarked the red poppy and states that any change to the poppy is disrespectful of the veterans.

    So is it about gays, or veterans?
    A socialist will trample over one hundred poor people just for the chance to throw a rock at a rich man.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Remembrance_poppy
    The remembrance poppy is an artificial flower that has been used since 1921 to commemorate military personnel who have died in war, and represents a common or field poppy, Papaver rhoeas. The remembrance poppy was inspired by the World War I poem "In Flanders Fields", and promoted by Moina Michael and the “Originator of the Poppy Day” Madame Guérin.[1] Prior to this, Madame Guérin had been raising funds for French and American war charities throughout World War I for widows, orphans, veterans, the Red Cross, the charitable organisation Food for France, U.S. Liberty bonds and other causes.
    I suspect if one does not support those "other causes" - then one is free not to wear the poppy - as a matter of "freedom of expression."

    That is if one is guaranteed freedom of speech. Some are not.

    Then perhaps it is time for these armies of the dead to return, to defend their place in history. For IMO faith has been broken ...
    ====================

    In Flanders Fields
    By John McCrae

    In Flanders fields the poppies blow
    Between the crosses, row on row,
    That mark our place; and in the sky
    The larks, still bravely singing, fly
    Scarce heard amid the guns below.

    We are the Dead. Short days ago
    We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
    Loved and were loved, and now we lie,
    In Flanders fields.

    Take up our quarrel with the foe:
    To you from failing hands we throw
    The torch; be yours to hold it high.
    If ye break faith with us who die
    We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
    In Flanders fields.
    The wonder of our time isn’t how angry we are at politics and politicians; it’s how little we’ve done about it. - Fran Porretto

    I have a poppy on my desk right now. It's red. If it weren't, it wouldn't be here.

    Report: Student Refuses To Wear LGBT ‘Rainbow Poppy’, Distributes Poster With Her Reasons. Then She’s Suspended.
    By Hank Berrien
    DailyWire.com

    According to a former Conservative Party candidate from northern Manitoba in Canada, her 17-year-old cousin was suspended from school when she refused to wear a Remembrance Day poppy containing a rainbow in support of LGBT+ causes.

    A report from The Post Millennial indicated the teenager was suspended for distributing a poster outlining her reasons for refusing to wear the rainbow poppy.

    Cyara Bird of the Little Black River First Nation, whose grandfather was reportedly a World War II veteran, wrote on Twitter that her 17-year-old cousin Natalie and another student said they would not wear the rainbow poppy at Stonewall Collegiate as they preferred to wear the traditional red-and-black poppy, with Natalie reportedly saying the rainbow poppy was “disrespectful” to the World War II veterans in her family.

    Bird wrote:


    My 17-year-old cousin was suspended today… want to know why? Her choir teacher was demanding that the choir wear rainbow poppies during their performance in the Remembrance Day ceremony. She and another student rejected that idea, and both were suspended for “hate speech.”
    The poster allegedly distributed by Natalie read:


    Never seen something so disrespectful in all my days. What does LGBTQ have to do with the war? Red represents Blood, Black represents widows and loved ones, green represents land the blood was spilled on. NEVER change the poppy. Way to un-do centuries of blood sweat and tears all because you needed to do the dishes. Keep it in your pants nobody wants or needs to see it.

    You’ve got a whole month dedicated to the LGBTQ community, but the people who legitimately made a difference and died so that we could live decent lives get one day. You don’t need a poppy, you just clearly want attention. One day to celebrate the real hero’s how about we don’t make it about your sexuality for once?

    If you didn’t make such a big deal about it and force people to make it a part of their lives it would be no problem.
    Natalie told The Post Millenial, “It all started when teachers, counselors, and some students said we should wear the rainbow poppy … I typed up papers on a computer, printed them off, and taped them up in the halls. As I was putting them up, teachers were taking them down. I watched as they took them to the office and gave them to the secretary.”

    Natalie said she was taken to the principal’s office; she continued, “They accused me of hate speech and endangering the physical safety of the group of individuals (LGBT students). They asked me what I was thinking, and I told them everything … I said I was just voicing my beliefs and morals. I got to the point of almost crying, but I didn’t. I had to be the voice for all those families who were greatly disrespected and offended … So I asked why? Why am I being suspended and punished for expressing my feelings? And they said everybody is entitled to their own beliefs, opinions, and way of life. So I asked, why am I not?”

    Remembrance Day is observed in the countries and states of the British Commonwealth to honor the members of their armed forces who have died in the line of duty since the end of the First World War.

    Traditionally, the day was observed in Canada by people wearing a poppy made of paper or fabric red material and a black center, as The Post Millenial observed. Funds collected from the sale of the poppies have gone to the Legion Poppy Fund for financial assistance to veterans.

    Bird added on Twitter, “I should add that the school screamed at her to stay quiet about it.” She posted a message from Natalie’s father reading, “Good the school was trying to hush her about it they literally both screamed at her she tried to voice record them on her phone and they tried to take it away from her.”

    Cyara Bird told the Post Millennial, “At 17, you are growing into yourself, you are learning to speak out against things you think are wrong. What kind of message does this send to a young woman? That they are not supposed to speak out against something they disagree with.” She added, “The pride we have because of our grandfather fighting in World War II is strong. We all wear poppies. [Natalie] was not opposing wearing one—she just did not want to wear one she felt was disrespectful to the veterans.”

    Board chair Alan Campbell of The Interlake School Division told LifeSite News, “In the interests of maintaining confidentiality, we would not publicly comment on any student matter whatsoever.” He added, “But what I can tell you is that at no point did a staff member of Stonewall Collegiate or Interlake School Division direct, mandate or suggest that any student should have to wear a rainbow poppy.”

    I saw some lesbian students tweeting. Outraged. Pointed out its only the straight white social justice loosers, err, warriors who come up with this nonsense....Notice the theme?

    I wish I could give her a horse-kiss.

    Do you think that would be inappropriate?

    Natalie is already far more grown up than most of the "adults" charged with her education, apparently. Kudos to her!

    I know nothing else about this young lady, still, this makes me respect her, as Dozdoats said, more than any of her teachers.

    Young lady, well done!

    Nope, it won't go anywhere first nations peoples in Canada are still treated as sub or nonhumans by the government, it's even worse if you live on a reservation.
    People are quick to confuse and despise confidence as arrogance but that is common amongst those who have never accomplished anything in their lives and who have always played it safe not willing to risk failure.

    Yup we can all see the angry backlash coming, and our so called elites are going to be blindsided by it. :-(

    Notice it is NOT Lesbian or Gay people actually doing this...as folks here know I have a lot of gay friends and most of them think not only are things getting silly and over-the-top; they know the backlash is likely to be terrible.

    I don't know whose "agenda" this garbage really is, but it isn't coming from John and Joe or Mary and Jane who happen to prefer same-sex romantic partners and now have most of what they really wanted: they can get married and live like everyone else.

    For a long time in the US (and elsewhere) that was not the case, now things have changed for the better but why in the world would anyone except maybe the VFW San Francisco branch want to wear a rainbow poppy.

    And I can't imagine any of the guys I knew expecting a First Nations Grandaughter of a WWII vet being punished for not wearing one, after all, she is remembering her grandfather not Pride Day (there is a time for that, but this isn't it).

    1Pe 4:7 But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore of sound mind, and be sober unto prayer

    Joh 3:16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only-begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
    Joh 3:17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but so that the world might be saved through Him.

    I agree completely.

    I looked, and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him. They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine and plague, and by the wild beasts of the earth.
