Students Kicked Off Campus for Wearing American Flag Tees on Cinco De Mayo
On any other day at Live Oak High School in Morgan Hill, Daniel Galli and his four friends would not even be noticed for wearing T-shirts with the American flag. But Cinco de Mayo is not any typical day especially on a campus with a large Mexican American student population.
Galli says he and his friends were sitting at a table during brunch break when the vice principal asked two of the boys to remove American flag bandannas that they wearing on their heads and for the others to turn their American flag T-shirts inside out. When they refused, the boys were ordered to go to the principal's office.
"They said we could wear it on any other day," Daniel Galli said, "but today is sensitive to Mexican-Americans because it's supposed to be their holiday so we were not allowed to wear it today."
The boys said the administrators called their T-shirts "incendiary" that would lead to fights on campus.

The mother who said “I don’t know what the big deal is” is a member of the “sheeple” class and will do nothing more about this outrage against her son and her country. And there lies the problem. Apathy.
Society is broken up into 3 types of people: wolves, sheep, and shepherds. Too many wolves and sheep. Not enough shepherds.
OK.......here is what we must all do ( I did this, so this a true story ) my son had a big cinco de mayo celebration in his school, and the parents were invited to attend. I did attend, as did my wife. When I saw the principal, I walked up to him, and congratulated him on a wonderful little evening. He was beaming with pride. I then asked him what the kids do on Veterans day. He looked a little confused. I then said to him, “ Because of the Veterans of the Armed Forces, some of who gave their lives, you and the kids are able to have this celebration. What do you do for Veterans day”?...well, he had no answer for that, but the following year the school had a Veterans day celebration to end all celebrations. The whole school spent the week writing reports, letters to vets, and put on a celebration that put his cinco de mayo celebration to shame. So, in closing, challenge the authorities, but do it in a way they cannot counter. The results are nothing short of spectacular...( the principal is long gone from this school, but to this day they still do the Veterans day celebration )
This pandering has to stop. Either we are one Nation: America; and one People: Americans -- or we are gaggle of tribes loyal only to skin melanin, or ancestral homelands...
Juat wrote him a note, thanks.
btw, I believe diversity is divisive.
A dear friend of mine was born, raised and now just recently went back to his hometown of Guanajuato. He told me that they do not celebrate this supposed holiday in Mexico. It’s just a big deal here in America. I don’t know about other areas in Mexico, but he said that it’s just another day over there.
Think back to the late 1960’s. I’m in Jr High school, and I like headbands. No, I wasn’t a hippie, but I did like the “style”. So, I’m wearing a headband one day, and in gym we don’t dress and hang around for some reason I don’t remember any more.
I almost got “jumped” (beaten up) by a group of mexicans because “only Indians can wear a headband.” Yep. A teacher and some friends intervened before anything started, but a black girl heard my account of what had just happened. She wanted to borrow my headband. I let her. She found this group of girls and taunted them asking, “You going to tell me to take this off?”
Moral of the story. Mexicans can push you around until you push back.
We aren’t pushing back.
Thank you for the link.
I just sent him a note.
Don’t know if Rush has mentioned this, this morning, but I just emailed him the link to the video.
Cinco de Mayo ain’t even a big deal in Mexico. What a bunch of wannabe idiots.
thanks falc. one note going his way soon.
If you are on Facebook show these boys your support. Their page is on fire. It went from 30 to over 1500 in less than an hour. Lets keep it rolling!
Only for 'show'...
A few years ago when they had the pro-Amnesty rallies the marches were draped in a sea of foreign (Mexico) flags.
During the interview, one of the pro-Cinco del Mayo students was complaining how the students who were displaying the American flag were 'disrespecting' (... by the way - when did disrespect become a verb?) her country's flag... Argghh - to answer the second part of your question - her mindset was definitely that of a foreigner in America - not someone who wanted to be an American...
Anyone upset by another student wearing an American flag ought to be sent back to Mexico permanently.
Political tool is my guess. My friend would laugh when May 5th came. Basically, he said it was just
another excuse to drink/party and he did not celebrate it.
Kudos! A diplomatic and very effective solution. Thanks for
the reminder to think about what we WANT to happen as well as what we don’t want. We have an obligation to do more than complain. Hats off to you and your wife.
I lived right down the street from Live Oak High School - and my kids would be going there if I hadn’t sold the house and moved our business to Idaho 5 years ago. Lucky me - I would be crazy PO’d should I have a kid going to school with those bozos. I can see me getting stupid and confronting the administrators and looking for a piece of one of them. Not a good picture.
We brought our employees with us when we moved the business. They all are of the same opinion. ‘Pissed off’ falls short of the proper description.
Another example of Political Correctness corrupting everything it touches.
