Students sent home for wearing American flag t-shirts

Filed under: Uncategorized — aunursa @ 9:36 pm

Five students at Live Oak High School in Morgan Hill, Calif. were sent home from school on Wednesday because they wore t-shirts with the American flag to school on Cinco de Mayo.

The action was apparently taken because the principal was afraid that the t-shirts might provoke Mexican-American students who were wearing t-shirts with the colors of the Mexican flag to hostilities, and the five students refused to turn their t-shirts inside out.

  1. It seems that he is opening the school up to a suit because he allowed the “Mexican-American” students to wear their provocative shirts. I wonder how many of them were illegals.

  2. When wearing an image of the American flag on a t-shirt is not the most protectible type of speech, it’s time to take out the tar and feathers and start a new government.

  3. Why is the vice principal so racist? Apparently, he thinks that Mexican students are unable to control themselves. What a bigot. Exit questions: did he make any students change their attire on Veterans Day or St. Patrick’s Day? How will he enforce the rules this Memorial Day?

  5. I had the same reaction Pat did. Would these Mexican students really start a fight if they saw the US Flag on May 5? Why do they want to be Americans if they hate America (granted, these are mostly born citizens, as American as I am).

    It’s critical we assimilate immigrants and youth into a common culture that loves our country. That’s part of what this school should be doing, and because of democrat talking points, they are actually doing the opposite.

    It’s clear we need a sit in, or a flag in. This is basic civil rights. We should refuse to give in until the side of the school is painted with a US Flag pattern. It’s not out of hate that people display their flag.

    It does seem that it’s out of hate that people display their Mexico flag, at least those who say this is ‘their’ continent and white people should be kicked out. Of course they don’t want to see the US Flag, a symbol of diversity and tolerance and equality.

  7. The actions of the school officials were directly analogous to the politically correct principle of ‘hate speech’. That is, regardless what a speaker says, the speakee may claim she suffered bad feelings from hearing the speech. PC referees will then use the claimed ‘bad feelings’ as all evidence needed to punish the speaker.

    In Morgan Hill, apparently the PC principle (and Principal, come to think of it) has been extended to mean ‘hate clothing’. That’s the American flag I’m talking about, not gang colors.

    Here’s a test of that principle. Let’s say that someone in a suit and tie did some real harm to a victim. Can the victim henceforth not use the above principle to claim bad feelings, or an imminent fist fight, whenever a suit enters the room, and have its wearer sent home if he refuses to turn it inside out?
