Tea-Party Flag On Display In Southern Utah University Facility

Two flight instructors from state funded Southern Utah University, were killed when their aircraft crashed during a training flight earlier this week. During a news broadcast about the crash, a local news station showed video of the flight school's hangar at the Cedar City, Utah airport.

Towards the end of the video, there are two flags prominently displayed side by side on the wall of the hangar. One flag is a red colored school flag with the letters SUU. The other flag is a bright yellow "Gadsden" flag, now used by the extremist right wing hate group known as the Tea-Party!

As a lifelong Utah resident and taxpayer, I find the prominent display of this symbol of right wing extremism in a state subsidized facility to be offensive and out of line.

It is unfortunate that it took the deaths of the two flight instructors to show that this school has some ugly political extremism that needs to be dealt with.

The offensive display is shown at the 1:53 point in the video. It only lasts for about 3 seconds but how long has the flag been on display in the facility?


Out With The Old - In With The Same Old Dogma - Face The Nation

"Face The Nation" is debuting it's new host John Dickerson (who?) with the same old Bob Schieffer-esque Republican Dogma. I mean Chris Christie and Rick Perry?

Makes me want to hurl.
