Apparently what is considered peaceful protesting has changed completely since students protesting gun laws in the wake of the Parkland school shooting feel entitled to destroy the American flag and police property.
March 14 was supposed to be a peaceful protest where students walked out of their classrooms in protest of guns. Even walking out of your class is not the right way to protest much less tearing down the American flag. That is what students at Antioch High School near Nashville, Tennessee did Wednesday.

The so-called "peaceful protest" soon turned into chaos on the school grounds as hundreds of kids who are told they are entitled to act however they choose by mainstream media who promote this kind of behavior by giving encouraging students to protest. It's not clear why these students think destroying property paid for by taxpayers is "their right".
A Metro Nashville Public Schools spokesman said no students were injured and security swiftly took control of the situation. The school's statement said:
"Unfortunately, some students on our Antioch campus today chose to protest in ways that significantly disrupted school operations and threatened the safety and order for other students and staff within our school,” district spokesperson Michelle Michaud told the TV station. “Swift action was taken by school security and [police] to address the situation … We look forward to welcoming students back tomorrow for a great day of teaching and learning."
Despite destroying both city and school property, the police made no arrests or citations. Leonor Muñoz, a senior at Stoneman Douglas, said "We shouldn’t be here, but we are because we can’t deal with the idea of this happening again. We should be studying for a test we will probably fail."
The liberal ideology that promotes this type of thinking is counter-productive and there seems to be no one in these children's lives to explain to them that they can't see around corners and have no life experience to base their understanding of these complex issues. Do any of these students really think that walking out of their classrooms during class is going to benefit anyone?
