EDITORIAL: Stinko de Mayo - School administrators need a lesson in right and wrong
Wash. Times ^ | 5/6/10 | editor

Posted on 05/06/2010 5:33:38 PM PDT by Nachum

On May 5, five students at Live Oak High School in Morgan Hill, Calif., were sent home for wearing clothing featuring the American flag. Their offense: trespassing on Mexican heritage during Cinco de Mayo. Administrators called the flag-wearing "incendiary" and likely to cause violence. The school district overrode the decision, and the boys were allowed to return to school. In response yesterday, about 200 students staged a walkout carrying Mexican flags. The question is: Who taught these kids to hate America so much?

What a disgrace. This country is headed towards a place and time that I dare not even think about. As an American of Cuban descent, I am sick to my stomach that this great and generous country has been overrun by this trash. We better wake up soon and put a stop to this atrocity before we lose our beloved America.

Did the 200 kids get detention and if not why not?

They want to start down this road; OK, suspend them for walking out of school, use that as a basis for a law enforcement contact to check their and their families immigration status.

If wearing a t-shirt with the American flag is likely to cause violence, the school administration is not doing its job. If any clothing is likely to cause violence, the principal should be fired. Disgust with a pro-Osama or pro-Obama shirt? Yep. But violence even over a “Hope/Change” shirt? No way. And over a pro-America shirt? They should be ashamed of themselves for making such a pathetic claim and for permitting an environment in which the thought would cross their tiny little minds.

While the high school's administrators may have been responding to a real public-safety threat, that threat was the product of their failure to instill a sense of national pride in their students.

The school's failure is a minor part of the problem. The real problem starts at home.

Right from the horse’s mouth: even these administrators admit that pro-illegal liberal brats are likely to respond to peaceful dissent with violence.

SIGN: "You owe us America. We will shoot more Arizona police until we get free."

L/E is looking for that guy---it's a crime to threaten violence. This stupid little brownster needs to know: Things endemic to the Third World----drug-running, illiteracy, serfdom, slavery, ruling elites, armed street patrols, mob rule, bribery as a way of life----do not fly here.

Inflicting Third World savagery on the US ain't gonna happen no how.

===========================================

Just here for a better life---plotting to takeover the USA.

May Day Marchers.

This is all going to explode soon, IMHO. It has to.

So they marched in protest of the American boys being allowed to return to school? What would have satisfied them? Never letting the boys back? Lining them up in front of a firing squad? All this over FLAG shirts! The sheer arrogance of the illegals, their anchor brats, and their advocates is infuriating. They've been so coddled, now they think they can tell us what to wear and who should be allowed back in school. This is outrageous. It's way past time to take our country back.

Maybe the same questionable intruder who tried to eject the patriotic Americans-- an assistant principal of unknown citizenship named Rodriguez.

Good. Keep walking, in a southerly direction, until you reach the country whose flag you are carrying.

The same principle should apply. It is time to defend this country or lose it.

Anybody who starts that Third World kidnapping-and-intimidation crap in this country can look forward to a very short and exciting life.

Doesn't matter. Law enforcement officers are obliged to properly identify individuals they arrest. Unfortunately, so called "sanctuary cities" explicitly prohibit the police from doing so.

This clash of opposing 'laws' will be fun to watch!

I agree. If the school can't maintain basic order, the place should be shut down.
