Skip to comments.School Forces Kid to take down US Flag on Veteran's Day (Mexicans censoring Americans, again)
Posted on 11/11/2010 11:23:45 PM PST by radpolis
A Stanislaus County school is forcing a student to take an American flag off of his bike.
Thirteen-year-old Cody Alicea put the flag there as a show of support for the veterans in his family.
But officials at Denair Middle School told him he couldn't fly it. He said he was told some students had complained.
So now the eighth-grader folds up the flag and puts it in his backpack while he is in class.
His father, Robert Kisner, said his son should not have to put the flag away.
"He's got that flag on his bike because he's proud of where he comes from," Kisner said.
"Our Hispanic, you know, kids will, you know, bring their Mexican flags and they'll display it, and then of course the kids would do the American flag situation, and it does cause kind of a racial tension which we don't really want," Parraz said. "We want them to appreciate the cultures."

Time for this guy to go to the American Center for Law and Justice. They do constitutional issues. Since when is it constitutional to tell a kid he can’t have an American Flag. The Flag of the country in which he lives?
WHEN are we going to take BACK our country???
America has degenerated into a Bureautocracy ruling over a population of sheep.
This should generate a MOB of angry citizens converging upon the local Board of Education, telling them to REMOVE the idiots from the school responsible for this, or they will REMOVE them themselves!
What American citizens have permitted faceless bureaucrats, looney judges, feckless politicians, and fringe group maniacs demanding their “rights” to do a once great nation is beyond belief!!!
PICTURE something like this happening 200 years ago! A lot of people would be wearing tar and feather coats and riding rails.
The MAJORITY has rights too and we better start enforcing them.
Why on earth do Americans keep on putting children into communist indoctrination camps and expect those same prisons to honor their own country????
Socialist schools are out to destroy your country.
Get rid of the poison. Get rid of it NOW.
Not a good ending to a very nice Veterans Day.
“...and then of course the kids would do the American flag situation, and it does cause kind of a racial tension which we don’t really want...”
I thought America was a multiracial country.
I very much share your feelings on this.
I'm pinging Jim on this in hopes that he has some thoughts on the situation in Denair (Stanislaus County) CA. His other postings after election day paint a dim view of what it's like in California. This latest outrageous incident just seems to confirm that.
My thoughts on this subject are for my mind only.
We can clearly see the ‘game plan’ of the Left.
Their goal, obviously, is to make being a proud White American illegal in all respects. Especially if you are Christian.
We need to be taught to be humble and subdued. White people need to be punished for their intelligence, success, and charity.
According to the Left, we are all evil, satanic, bastards.
Leftism in America is insane and suicidal. They think that their very magnificence will save them from the bloodbath they are willfully creating.
Such fools. Forgive them father, for they know not what they do.

Welcome to the Obamanation...
Better for everyone to go to the phone. Civil disobedience is effective.
Be polite, talk real slow, keep them tied up on the phone as long as you can. Be so nice it is nearly impossible for them to hang up on you.

The American flag is now a "situation".
I have to learn to start crying.
Tell them to shove it and take the expulsion.
It’s not like you are flying colors or anything.
Tell the bastards what you think of them.
Be NICE! (sarcasm)
What else do you expect from mexifornia?
Superintendent Edward Parraz:
“Our Hispanic, you know, kids will, you know, bring their Mexican flags and they’ll display it, and then of course the kids would do the American flag situation, and it does cause kind of a racial tension which we don’t really want...”
The school superintendent is incoherent, his English is substandard and he’s ignorant of the First Amendment. How’d he get the job?!
I called and left a message. Choose the option for “Office” and after a short recording you can leave a message (pretty quick to get through the voice mail).

Just curious: Most public schools in the State of California fly two flags on their grounds: the flag of the United States of America, and the flag of the California Republic. Is that true for this school also—does it fly the American flag on its grounds each day? Even the public schools in my deep-blue neighborhood (with its illegal alien “day laborer” pickup locations) do as much.
Outside of the school, a large U.S. flag flies from atop a flagpole.
I guess this means outside the school building, on the school grounds.
Thanks. If the U.S. flag is being flown on the school grounds, I don’t see why the students would have a problem with a student at the school displaying the same flag on his bike or backpack.
Yes, the US flag flies at the school, according to what was broadcast on the news.
But that makes the whole situation more sickening.
Let us stamp out all personal freedom in deference to the state.
Increasingly I find the distinction between illegal and legal Mexicans to be narrowing. Many (though certainly not all) think La Raza first instead of America first.
Am I wrong for coming to this conclusion?
Am I wrong for coming to this conclusion?
This is not a trait of all Hispanic Americans anymore than all German Americans or Italian Americans supported the Axis in WW2.
Hispanics are not Muslims.
Press 1 for English...
That’s an interesting statement.
Are California public schools still teaching children about Veterans' Day?
Here is a link to a 2010-11 school calendar. No holiday is marked for November 11, but November 12 (the day after Veterans' Day) is "early release" day:
No...I think that he’s just a chee-ken. They can ban that which would be “disruptive” and instead of banning the Cinco de Mayo disruptors, they banned the American flag because it could cause him to have to face the invasion forces.
Their sponsors know exactly what they're doing.
Ohhhhhhh they are going to catch coast to coast non stop conservative/patriot HELL, NOW! over this.
Because they want to fly the flag of their own loyalties.
Let's send them there. Let Mexico pay for their education...or they can put their flags of other nations away.
My point was focused specifically on Mexicans, a subset of the larger Hispanic ethnic category. I'll hasten to agree that many Hispanics (Marco Rubio comes immediately to mind) are outstanding citizens, especially the Cuban exiles in greater Miami.
I think that Mexicans may present a different case. Because the mother country is in such close proximity and due to the huge surge of Mexicans (legal and otherwise) into our country, they have been able to main close ties with their land of origin.
Unlike the Germans and Italians of prior generations (who came from afar), assimilation just doesn't seem to be happening with Mexicans. And there's much to prevent it, with services like Telemundo, Univision, Estrella, Telefutra as well as signs in Spanish that the previous wave of European immigrants didn't have.
Living here in Texas (a so-called minority-majority state), it's easy to see evidence to confirm my thoughts that a large segment of the Mexican population living here remains loyal to the mother country. I pass through several Mexican areas while driving to work. Yesterday, Veterans Day, I saw the Mexican tri-color flying outside of businesses and homes and not Old Glory. Sure, that's an anecdotal snapshot, but it's what I saw.
