THE CALIFORNIA PATRIOT, the University of California-Berkeley's conservative newspaper, is reporting that the school-sponsored day-long tribute to 9/11 will "exclude patriotic symbols and religious references." One of the organizers of the event called the American flag, "a symbol of U.S. aggression towards other countries. It seems hostile." White ribbons will be passed out instead of the originally-planned red, white, and blue ribbons, which were considered too political and divisive.

Your tax dollars are probably paying for this event.

UPDATE: The Wall Street Journal's Best of the Web Today picked up this story in Thursday's edition.
