It’s ever apparent the two cultures emerging in ‘woke’ America.
On one side you have the progressive radicals who insist on censoring citizens, murdering police officers, and pushing a race war. On the other side you have a growing number of Americans who demand a safe and secure border, honor the hard work of law enforcement officers, and stand up for freedom.
Earlier this week, substitute teacher in Grass Valley, California, upbraided a 13-year-old student for wearing a mask with the image of the “Thin Blue Line” flag, telling the boy, “That’s not the American flag; that’s the new confederacy flag.”
The blue line on the “Thin Blue Line” flag is intended to represent law enforcement, standing between what is above the line, representing citizenry and order, from what is below the line, representing crime and anarchy.

The incident at Lyman Gilmore Middle School was filmed on cellphones by multiple students. The student, Lucas Lillar, “said he wears [the mask] to support his father, who is a police officer.”

When Lillar was asked how it felt to be the child of law enforcement workers, he replied, “It just makes me feel worried.”
In August 2020, the Department of California Highway Patrol issued a roll call briefing document stating that officers were barred from displaying Thin Blue Line items. The memo stated, “All ‘Thin Blue Line’ paraphernalia, including anything resembling it, shall be removed immediately. This includes any paraphernalia hung anywhere in the office, stickers/patches on State or personal; property that may be seen by the public during the course of duties, and email signature blocks.”
Then- San Francisco Police Chief Bill Scott sent an email to officers warning that although the “Thin Blue Line” flag was “a meaningful expression to honor fallen officers,” others would find it “divisive and disrespectful.” He stated, “Thin Blue Line masks shall not be worn by our on-duty members.”
Scott said the police should wear neutral face coverings from then on, asserting, “As an affirmation of the principle of safety with respect for all, we will replace the personal protective equipment to which some community members have objected.”
The clown world we’re forced to live in continues to get even more insane!
