There are so many stories to choose from I don’t know how they managed to pick just 10.

2013 was a year for many offenses against the beloved American traditions of truth, free enterprise, and freedom. Some of the worst offenses are found on school campuses. To close-out the year, we at Young America’s Foundation (YAF) present the Top Ten Politically Correct Offenses on campus:

1. 2,977 American Flags Ripped Out of the Ground at Middlebury College

Each year, more than 200 schools participate in YAF’s 9/11: Never Forget project. Unfortunately, at Middlebury College in Vermont, five student protestors ripped from the ground all 2,997 flags commemorating each of the lives lost on 9/11.

2. Vandals Destroy Pro-Life Display at DePaul University

On the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, 13 students at DePaul University destroyed a pro-life display created by DePaul’s Young Americans for Freedom Chapter. All 500 pink and blue flags meant to symbolize some of the lives lost due to abortion, were thrown into various campus garbage cans.

In June, graduating high school senior, Roy Costner IV decided to ditch his graduation speech and instead recite the Lord’s Prayer. He did this to take a stand against his school district’s decision to ban prayer at graduation ceremonies.
