Should public school officials have the right to prevent students from wearing pro-American garb on Cinco de Mayo?
This question has been at the heart of a California court battle between the Morgan Hill Unified School District and students who were told by a principal and assistant principal that they could not wear American flag t-shirts on the Mexican holiday back in 2010.
Following the incident, a lawsuit against the district was launched by the students and their families. This week, the case came to a close, with a federal judge ruling against the students a blow that is likely to infuriate some free speech advocates.
According to U. S. District Court Judge James Ware, the district did not violate the students first amendment rights. The judge also found that officials concern over the potential violence that could be incited by the students pro-American outfits justified the schools actions

It’s time for those kids to wear those flags next year. Accompanied by their parents.
No longer do we have to obey these “judges”.
They can shove their silly rulings up their smelly Obamas.
It’s slipping away from us folks.
Only a matter of time.
A federal judge will soon rule that a school can ban the American flag anywhere on its property.
You’d better believe it.
In 1998, Judge Ware was reprimanded by the Judicial Council of the Northern District Court of California for fabricating the story of being the brother of Virgil Ware, a 13 year old black boy shot by white teenagers in Alabama in 1963 on the same day as the 16th Street Baptist Church bombing.
According to a story Judge Ware had told many audiences, he was riding his bike with his brother Virgil on the handlebars when Virgil was shot and killed by white racists. The incident was a real one, however it happened to a different James Ware, as was discovered when Judge Ware's claim was published in the Alabama papers after he was nominated to the Ninth Circuit by President Bill Clinton."
Who knew? This judge is apparently "troubled".
They should have wore Robes and KKK hats.
What a #$%^&@#* OUTRAGE! Cinco de Mayo my F#$%ing arse. The illegal-loving federal judge should GTFO and move to Mexico.
I have a better idea, lets ban the Cinco de Mayo celebrations. Then there won’t be an issue if an American student wants to wear a t-shirt with an American flag.
If they want to celebrate Cinco de Mayo, then they can go back to Mexico.
A**hole Commie. We gotta vote ‘em out, folks. Every chance we get.
I know this one was probably selected to the bench by the powers that be, but we can get better judges by electing patriots to higher office.
Let’s git ‘er dun.
I’m not clear on your reference to the Klan. Wearing a facsimile of the U.S. flag is racist? Is that your insinuation?
This Federal Judge offends ME!
Send him to jail!
We apparently have a 1st amendment right to burn the flag,
but not to display it.
What’s the big deal about beating the French anyways? Like who HASN’T done that?
F$#% these foreign invaders...they can KMA.
Or, simply require the Mexicans to provide the beer free of charge to everybody else ~
Why do patriotic Americans continue to send their children to the union-run, tax-funded, government school collectives to have them indoctrinated against everything they love?
Why do Christians and Jews continue to send their children to the union-run, tax-funded, government school collectives to have their faith mocked and be indoctrinated against everything they love?
14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?
16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,
18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.
1 Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.
2nd Corinthians 6:14-7:1
I know me....and I would have bought flag shirts for everyone.
I like it!
Yeh, what are they going to do? Throw him in jail? If he doesn’t attend their school, they don’t get the ADA money for him. I’m all for opting out of public schools, esp the dictatorial ones.
Some of the students should have exercised their 1st Amendment rights by burning a Mexican Flag.
Thanks...spread the word. Whatever offends these jackasses, I’m doing it from now until death. I wore solid black to work for a full week after Obozo won the election.
