California Latino Students Protest ‘Lack of Respect’
A Semi-News/Semi-Satire from AzConservative ^ | 7 May 2010 | John Semmens

Posted on 05/07/2010 6:49:40 PM PDT by John Semmens

A group of 200 mostly Latino students from Live Oak High School skipped class in Morgan Hill, California over an incident they alleged showed a “lack of respect for us and our heritage.” The protestors marched through neighborhoods shouting slogans and carrying signs.

The “incident” that provoked the outburst occurred when five other students had the effrontery to wear American flag tee shirts to school on May 5th. Even though school administrators sent these students home to change their shirts “to show the proper respect for our Latino student body members,” the protestors insisted “this wasn’t enough of a punishment for their mocking our sacred day.”

“It is bad enough that Cinco de Mayo isn’t a recognized holiday,” complained one of the protestors. “But to be taunted by the Anglo oppressors of the Mexican people is too much to bear. They should be expelled.”

“Immature students may think their ‘American-flag-waving’ stunt is patriotic,” said Live Oak High School Assistant Principal Walter Wussman. “But patriotism doesn’t give a person the right to inflict emotional pain on others. As for the claim that the First Amendment protects the right to express opinions that are offensive to others, well that doesn’t apply on school grounds. The Administration has the authority to impose whatever restrictions it deems warranted in order to promote what we consider an appropriate learning environment.”

In related news, New York’s Governor David Paterson (D) announced the creation of a program to assist criminal immigrants to avoid deportation. “Immigrant felons make up an important segment of our state’s criminal class,” Paterson observed. “If we deport them the need for police, prosecutors, prison guards and the like will be diminished. These public employees have families to feed. We can’t let them suffer because of some knee-jerk notion that we should rid ourselves of so-called undesirable foreigners.”

Branding with the words "Property of the state of New York"?

For the situation of ILLEGALS, respect is EARNED when you RESPECT and ABIDE by our LAWS. Till then, I am unable to RESPECT a CRIMINAL, which is what an ILLEGAL ALIEN is.

They don’t want to assimilate. But they want all the benefits without contributing.

Governments don’t generate money, they only spend it! Hey my new tag line.

You realize most posters won’t bother to check and see if it’s satire before blowing a gasket.

Well done!

The principal should be fired.

There will be attacks on those kids if they go back to that school. The faculty has basically endorsed it.

If nothing is done about illegal immigration, I can see this going from protesters “marching” to an all out Civil War, and not in the far too distant future.

Bingo. The faculty deflected the anger and put it all on white kids. The faculty was scared. The white kids are now scared. What we’re scared of we can’t face head on, and we haven’t which only exacerbates the problem by kicking the can down the road. Sooner or later, there’s no more road left and then..

I don’t think the faculty was scared, I think it was complicit. I think they were organizing these kids for La Raza or something.

America respect Mexico? Not in Texas. We feel sorry for Mexico. We don’t respect Mexico.

Very good! Interestingly the Latino stoodents rioted the next day and vandalized a pickup truck flying the Stars and Stripes while being driven by a 5 foot housewife. Typically, the vandals insisted that the entire Morgan Hill police department guard their flanks while they engaged in their freedom of “expression”. The police complied, and things were looking grim until a quick thinking Gringo hollered “siesta ahora” and the vandals all fell unconscious, allowing the woman to escape.

Lack of respect? These losers sound as offended as muslims.

Go to Mexico if you don't want to be laughed at for brandishing a Mexican flag.

My work is semi-satire. The basic story is always real. I just expose the unspoken thoughts behind the action.

They don’t have to be taught this. Excessive pride is trait of machismo culture.

The proper reply is for MORE and MORE Americans to wear the flag every day.

This includes students, if Stinko DeMayo, (which is NOT an American holiday) is the pretext for sending the American students home, what excuse will the anti-American lobby use the rest of the year?

I hope that next week a hundred or more students show up in U.S. flag colors!
