Posted on 05/07/2010 6:07:35 AM PDT by broken_arrow1
Yesterday, a listeners son was offended that his school, Klein Collins High School, displayed the Mexican flag prominently. His mother called to complain, and the school wouldnt return her call. The student took the sign down.
The school pitched a fit, reviewed the surveillance tapes, found the student, and suspended him for 3 days. AND he has to pay for the flag. In light of the SF story of students sent home for wearing the AMERICAN flag because it offended the Hispanic students, I thought youd like to know about a story closer to home.
You realize, I assume, that if a student removed or even burned the AMERICAN flag, they wouldnt do anything about it, Ill bet.

Can a FR poster please copy that photo and post it in this thread.
Klein Collins High School (832) 484.5500. Assistant Principal handling the case: Mr. Shelly Dick.
the American Legion needs to go do a flag program at that school and teach all those people proper flag etiquette
That looks like the pic taken a few years ago.
Still riles me to look at it, but it doesn’t appear recent or related to this story.
Another reason to home school.
PAGING MISTER DICK! IS THERE A DICK HERE?
Kid should have worn a headdress like a Taliban fighter, or a Burka.
Personally I would have done the same thing.Our schools are not the United nations where they can fly any flag the want.
The American flag is in the distress position so I think this photo is from a protest against illegal immigration.
I wonder if on some special day for the south, they’d raise up the Rebel Flag? Nah, kind of doubt that...
No foreign flags should ever fly in this country, without the US flag flying above it. Or, I thought that was the protocol?
Well, all I can say is, this story, and the one yesterday, will make most Americans realize that laws against illegals need to be enforced and strengthened. Unfortunately, neither political party in the USA has any guts at all...
Stinko de mio is not even a federal holiday in Mexico so I don’t get why Mexicans and Americans here make such a big deal of it besides as an excuse to drink.
And no national flag except under certain exceptions such as a visiting dignitary from another country being honored at a public government expense should fly on our flag poles. And then only with the U.S. Flag being given the place of highest honor.
This $#!+ has GOT to stop....
At least they properly showed that America is in distress.
America & Americans First bump!
Another thing that "leaves me feeling confused"...5 yr. old Trinity brought a Letter home from school...EXACT WORDING.."We will be having our annual art and essay contest again this year...the theme is What My Heritage Means To ME. One girl & one boy will be selected & reign as king & queen of the Latino Fiesta.....so...
I have to say; Stinko De Mayo is a false Holiday. So France sells Mexico to Mexico. The Mexican prez defaults on the payments to France. France comes to reposess. The Mexicans ambush Maxamillion. The French loose (nothing new here) BUT,Mexico can’t make their payments and then kill the providers. Hmmm Really fine holiday you got there.
Do they have Octoberfest king and queen?
How about St. Patrick's Day king and queen? (sarc)
Thanks for the correction. I assumed that was what flew over Klein school, since it accompanied the website article. Either way, the words tell the story.
What the (bleep), this is right down the street from my house! I will try to be there this afternoon with a protest sign.
A bunch of students at a Texas school (IIRC) pulled down the American flag during the immigration protests of a few years ago.
They raised the Mexican flag and put the American flag under it.
I would give the kid a medal.
I think it is largely a regional celebration in Mexico so why its importance is so overblown in the U.S. in beyond me. Though I think beer sales have a lot to do with that.
(Comment: unfortunately, the photo on Michael Berry’s website earlier in the week was not accurate ... he now has a correct picture posted at http://www.ktrh.com/pages/michaelberry.html )
It seems interesting that KISD is targeting one persons misinformation, Michael Berry/AM 740, as a distraction away from their actions.
Lets review the KISD errors:
- prominate display of the Mexican flag in the hallway
- display approved by KISD staff
- team of 6 staff marched the student down to the principals office (6?)
- per the students mother, there is a hint of extortion ... they are demanding the student pay a third party for the mexican flag
- KISD hung-up on / would not speak with the students mother early in the event ... and did not take parental objections into account
- the Student and his family are now receiving death and violence threats; there is a portion of blame that KISD must accept for these threats, based on how they treated the parent, how they treated the student, and based on the aggressive PR campaign they are now running
The student is an ROTC member at the school, and should be proud of his actions.
My view - the patriotism of KISD staff is in question, and they showed poor judgement and PC-like behavior. They ignored the majority of tax payers in their district, and embarrassed themselves. Effectively, they have spit on the American Flag.
There are reasons why we only fly the American flag inside and outside schools; the blood of our patriots and the blessings of God allowed this school to even exist - and for another nations flag to be openly and brazenly displayed is an affront to these American Patriots.
