Posted on 05/07/2010 3:03:47 PM PDT by scottfactor
These two young men in this video interview have been victimized by a high school principal that should be brought up on charges of treason. The pricipal's reaction to these young men wearing an American flag shirt is attrocious. However, it's OK to wear the flag of the cesspool of the Americas, Mexico. Take a look:

The ultimate disrespect is the President of the United States sitting on the desk in the oval office.
No class, no dignity, no regard for proper behaviour.
I would offer this wisdom. If the school or county management folks say this is a rule or law...cite it...and say it in public. Ensure this is a public forum and allow the parents, the community, and the media to view the announcement.
I’m pretty sure the guy has about seven days of employment left in him when he finishes the statement. The county board of education will either all resign or take back the statement very quickly. In any case...the whole question over this debate dissolves quickly.
And for any Mexican kid who thinks Mexico is cool...tell dad to drive you across the border and start taking classes in Mexico. Think high and imagine your future in twenty years. Be proud...be also be humble and accept your future.
I personally think that every Mexican kid who gets into this entire discussion...has never been across the border in their life...and has no idea where the heck they really came from. That would really say alot about impressions.
The Mexican children seem to feel entitled to respect. What say you?
I wonder how many people remember when you could get arrested for having a flag on a piece of clothing - for disrepecting the flag.
I also wonder how many people realize the Hispanics who illegally cross our borders are NOT representative of the general population of Mexico. I travel to Mexico often on business and I generally find them to be much better educated than typical Americans in the same professional capacities. For example, the quality manager at a metal fabricator in the US might be a degreed metallurgist, in Mexico he or she would have an advanced degree, even multiple Ph.D.’s at the same company. It’s not unusual to find unmarried twentysomethings still living at home with their parents and often their grandparents too, because the wage scales are quite lower than ours, and cost of living more relative to ours. Their respect for family, faith, and tradition is enviable.
And I support without question the Arizona legislature’s actions, and the governor of that state. I was in Phoenix last week when this broke and heard of lot of the news that goes unreported in the rest of the country. You have to search the internet to find stories on the criminal activities that precipitated the crackdown.
If Mexican kids are abusive to kids wearing US flags on their shirts on Mat 5th, punish them. If the kids wearing the US Flags on their shirts are abusive, punish them for being abusive. Don't punish either for showing pride in their heritage unless they demonstrate it by abusing others.
Respect is earned, not granted. Being proud of your heritage is one thing....rubbing it in the faces of others in a provacative manner is not acceptable. Cinco De Mayo is not a recognized national holiday in our country because....it’s a Mexican holiday. When in Rome, do as the Romans do. That seems to be the problem with today’s immigrants....hanging on to the past. You can remember your heritage and move forwar dto becoming a productive American, which means learning to speak English and learning that the AMERICAN flag flies highest on the pole.
Tell it, brother!
