A group of students at a California high school basketball game were told to remove patriotic bandanas and stop chanting USA, USA because school administrators wanted to be sensitive to other spectators.
The incident occurred during a basketball last week between Camarillo High School and Rio Mesa High School in Ventura County.
A school administrator pulled aside four boys and told them to either remove their American flag bandanas or leave the game. The boys complied but returned to lead the crowd in a chant of USA, USA.
Camarillo High School principal Glenn Lipman told the Ventura County Star that the students were told to remove the bandanas as a precaution because the two schools have diverse student bodies.
Both schools have a large Hispanic student population.
Student Austin Medeiros and the other boys were suspended for their actions but the punishment was later lifted by school officials.
Still, students are upset over what happened and staged a protest at the schools flagpole by wearing red, white and blue.
Weve done it always, Medeiros told the Ventura County Star. Its something we do. Its the same group of friends. Were all very patriotic.

Musn’t offend the hispanic students. Only American Christians can be offended, according to the PC police.
Who did the illegal aliens chant for?
Patriotic symbols and chant “USA.” How dare they!!!!
They should go to the next game with Mexican Flag bandanas and lead the crowd in a cheer “Mexico, Mexico, Mexico.”
See if they get the same treatment.
I hope the parents make a huge stink about it.
School vouchers are an absolute must. And this is but one example of why.
I don’t mind the chanting but show some respect for our flag. IT IS NOT AN ARTICLE OF CLOTHING!!!!
do you think this school would say anything about a kid wearing a Mexican flag and saying “Viva Mexico”?
So, these "other spectators" , if they existed, were not in the USA?
How does that happen?
Some kind of time / space warp?
We’re so screwed............what more can be said?
Glen Lipmann needs an ass kicking.
>> the students were told to remove the bandanas as a precaution because the two schools have diverse student bodies.
In other words, anti-American interlopers.
Screw ‘em! This is our country and they are welcome to join us legally and in spirit but of not, they can just go back on the boat, truck or skateboard they came in on.
I bet the school goes overboard for Mexico on Cinco de Mayo
Oh boo hoo....cry me a river Armenian puss
If you find anyone who will take that bet, let me know. I want in on the action.
Watched said video...since when does chanting USA, USA USA, is racial ?
That’s when parents ask for a written report, and then kindly point out that Mexican is not a race. At that point the administrator is proven incompetent, all punishments are stopped, and the kids’ records changed to reflect that.
Ahem. I’m sorry. Isn’t it about time soome fists started swinging? Enough abuse has been heaped on us already. Let’s get this party started.
