We’ve all been in that place, where our sense of patriotism is just so strong we can’t help but call things as we see them.
Well one high school student was given detention for being maybe a little too patriotic. The student wanted very badly to watch the US vs. Slovenia Olympic hockey game during Spanish class. To the displeasure of every US hockey enthusiast in the class, the teacher refused to show the game during class. The student responded with “You’re a communist, communist, communist.” resulting in a detention.
The Olympics just bring out the best in us.
