Yes, you read that headline correctly.
A Federal court actually approved banning the U.S. flag in a U.S. school to appease violent threats from Mexican students, many of them illegal aliens.
A panel of the Federal 9th Circuit Court of Appeals today upheld a California's high schools decision to forbid students from wearing American flag T-shirts on Cinco de Mayo. The ruling was unanimous, 3-0.
The Court said the officials' concerns of racial violence outweighed students' freedom of expression rights. Administrators said they feared the American-flag shirts would inflame the passions of Mexican students celebrating the Mexican holiday. So they told the students to turn their shirts inside out. When they and their parents refused, the students were sent home.

Absolute insanity. Whose nation is this anyway?
Wake Up, Obama has given the country away
“officials’ concerns of racial violence outweighed students’ freedom of expression rights.”
HaHaHa.....somebody forgot to put the semi-satire heading at the top.....wait you mean this is a true story.
Since when does a school official’s “concern” of violence override the Constitution.
San Fran 9th Circus.
But they always say it's an obscure holiday that is mainly celebrated by Americans.
Sounds to me like the school officials need to have a little meeting with the “illegals” and “splain” to then what country they are in. And tell them that we are proud of our country and the freedoms we have fought and died for and the flag is a symbol of that freedom. And tell them that if there is any violence on their part, ICE will be called to escort them to the border.
Ha Ha. Sorry I must have been asleep and dreaming when I typed that last post.
1st Amendment no longer applies??
This must be appealed and overturned before some other court uses it for a precedent.
Well, I think kids in Texas need to start wearing their “Come and take it” shirts!
Should there be a patriotic apparel day on May 5??
A ban on Mexican restaurants that day??
Too bad the Mexican students aren’t worried about wearing Mexican flag shirts.
It's belongs to those monitoring your cell phones, hacking your emails, bank records, aiding, abetting and subsidizing the flood of tens of millions of illegal aliens, many of which are violent criminals, those borrowing trillions from Communist countries, those who want to control, regulate and tax every move in your life...
No need to go on....You get it.
So those serving in the military fighting for their country learn back home the flag they defend is banned in their own country
The Court said the officials’ concerns of racial violence outweighed students’ freedom of expression rights.<<
that pretty much says it all!
There will come an accounting.
I wonder what would happen if someone comes into a school with a flag of the Netherlands on their shirts on May 5. If they would try that, the students should the school people to go jump in the lake.
The Netherlands celebrates Liberation Day on May 5. Liberation Day or in Dutch Bevrijdens Dag, is the celebration of the Dutch from the Germans in World War II.
On May 5, people with a Dutch background should wear either Red, White and Blue (the colors of their flag, horizontal stripes from top to bottom of red, white and blue, darker blue than the, I think, Liechtenstein flag with has a lighter blue), or they should wear Orange.
We are finished.
Instead of focusing on Ukraine, why don’t we face the fact that our nation is being destroyed here and now?
I wonder what the illegals would say if the Gringos wore the French flag on their shirts on Cinco de Mayo day.
American children can’t show the American flag in American schools because it might anger the invaders.
Cinco de Mayo involved an unexpected Mexican victory over the French. (If the French had won, maybe Mexico would have ended up part of Canada.) Anyhow, perhaps the flag that should be banned is the CESM one. As for the USA? It was busy feuding with itself in a Civil War. Its modern flag did not yet exist.
Someone needs to get a life.
Any punks can terrorize and their fear mongering rules the day.
I wonder if La Raza stuff gets a pass?
Ha ha ha ha ha!
Not sure if there should be taunting allowed, but that’s different from being patriotic. If Mexikids want to wear a Mexican flag, well and “grande.” They’re guests over here. Rude guests get the heave ho everywhere except, apparently, here.
From up Canada way, it could be said I do not have a dog in the hunt. Having said that, I do sincerely believe that the United States of America is the last bastion of freedom. This in a world that would like to impose much of it's failed ideas on the rest of us.
I had believed that a dossier should be created. Take down the names. The names of those who so kow tow to minorities and use some facet of the laws to offend the very tenets of the Constitution. A Freeper assured me previously that such a list exists.
It was once said by a wise Japanese authority that "we have awakened a sleeping giant". This on the attack on Pearl Harbor. How right he was.
What we are seeing is either a continuing and passive acceptance of these rotten applications..... or hell will break loose. Too much of a ramble by me, but anyway, God Bless America. It must remain the Land of the Free.
Absolute insanity is correct.
What do you think they would say if a school banned the Mexican flag?
What part of the Constitution was that??
Screw that. I work in a school District. Net Admin.
I’m wearing a shirt with the flag on it tomorrow.
I was thinking that a shirt with Winfield Scott’s picture might be appreciated. Or Sam Houston. Or Emperor Maximilian.
I was told on another thread that WE have to assimilate the Mexicans.
Setting aside the operative party, what if they’re no interested and completely unmotivated, which, of course, is the case.
they hate the US
Why are they here?
Here’s an idea - instead of violating the students’ right to free speech and expression, put some police in the schools and arrest and prosecute those who start violence, which is after all illegal - too simple apparently......
It’s not going to stop until we tell Big Biz and the Chamber of Commerce to forget it.
Obama is one force, but these guys are in there for the long haul.
Exactly what the author of this piece said: "So instead of preventing racist Mexican violence, the school decided to outlaw America."
Question: Are Mexican Flag Shirts permitted? You bet your sweet bippy. English Flags—no, green flag of Mohammed, yes. Nazi flags banned, Soviet/Cubam Flags OK.
So I guess the 9th Circus Ct. believes it’s OK for Americans to get inflamed about illegal aliens doing their flag thing with La Raza and LULAC stirring the hatred pot.
This US internal “volcano” which is being created by activist judges’ decisions is going to erupt some day. It wont be pretty.
Perhaps the solution would be for americans to get violent at the mexicans celebrating mexican holidays in American schools.
Then the school could pass a new rule forbidding the celebration of Stinko de Mayo because it inflames the passion of american students, and then the court could find in favor of the school since they want to avoid violence.
Bottom line - violence works.
“There will come an accounting.”
Do you have a time table?
Apparently violence means legitimacy
What does The Constitution have to do with school dress codes?
Go figure. If we are not a laughingstock to the rest of the world I’d be really surprised. It’s hard to be patriotic anymore when so many of our countrymen are traitorous, lacking common sense, and have no self-preservation.
Perhaps you did not read the entire article. The actions by the school and the 9th Circuit have many implications regarding the Constitution, far beyond school dress codes. If I have to explain that to you, well then, maybe you need a refresher course.
These students should assert their rights, guaranteed from government predation, and as a protest burn a pile of Mexican flags on May 5. Make sure it’s done in a safe manner with no other flammable objects nearby and with fire extinguishers on hand.
Take it to them.
It’s like appeasing Islamists. YOU better walk on egg shells lest THEY fly into an irrational rage. YOU, citizen, better not display a US flag on US territory lest FOREIGNERS cause trouble.
