Vexillophobia Goes National
A symbol of hatred or history? Obama quietly bans Confederate flag at cemeteries
By Stephen Dinan - The Washington Times - Monday, August 29, 2016
The Veterans Affairs Department quietly moved this month to ban flying of Confederate flags from fixed flagpoles at the cemeteries it runs, striking yet another blow against the controversial emblem.
Congress had debated and rejected that change, but the Obama administration decided to move forward anyway, saying it was unilaterally imposing the restrictions.

On a warm day in August, a couple dozen people gathered for an afternoon picnic at Shawnee Mission Park.
Under the shade of a shelter surrounded by leafy green trees, two men cooked burgers and brats on a charcoal grill next to a row of tables topped with red plastic tablecloths and a summery spread of sliced watermelon, barbecue-flavored potato chips and sopapilla cheesecake. The weather would have been perfect if not for occasional gusts of wind that whipped through the grove and threatened to topple the three flags fixed to portable poles next to the dessert table: an American flag, a Kansas flag and a Confederate battle flag.

Vexillophobia Outbreak in Missouri
Post by John Weir
RIVERSIDE, MO (KCTV) -
The Confederate flag controversy has swept across the nation and a Park Hill South student is suspended after he and his friends flew the southern flag to school Thursday.
The student's suspension brings up a gray area of freedom of speech rights on school property. The school says their policy is black and white and all students who sign a contract have to follow by the rules when parking in the school's lot.
