Greg Stoneburner almost didn’t get his diploma after he irritated his high school principal by raising the Gadsden flag. The flag features the Tea Party phrase, “Don’t Tread On Me.”

Stoneburner recently told that the school’s principal, Jodie Diers, withheld his controversial flag and high school diploma until after his graduation walk.

The student claims that Diers told him and his parents the flag was a “slap in the face” and that he was “not welcome” at the school. – S

    This kid is brat, his parents are derelict in their duties, the principal’s response was measured, tea partiers remain racist and ignorant; case closed.

    I hope Stoneburner’s stunt was worth it. Perhaps a tea party pin on his lapel…

    I wonder how Greg and his parents would react if some other student raised ,say, an Iraq flag?

    What idiots, do any of you know the history of the Gadsden Flag – from your posts – NO. Before you continue to open your mouths to insert your feet try researching the Gadsden Flag. Geesh
