“Ever feel like the you are on the endangered species list without the protections?”

Protection? We are considered vermin, they WISH we were an endangered species and will do whatever they can to reduce our number.

It would be better to arrest and lock up any garbage that starts a fight rather than hide the American Flag. Start with 5 year minimum sentence and double it for each offense.

The anti-American filth will get the message soon enough.

Note who is creating the danger. Note that they dont have to ban Mexican flags because the American kids aren’t the troublemakers. They would rather limit the freedom of the conservative kids rather than deal with those who cause the problem. If a mex attacks a kid wearing an American flag, arrest him, expel him from school and deport him. I am sick of losing my freedoms because members of other groups cant control themselves when they see or hear something they disagree with.

Why don’t they ban Mexican Students? That would remove the problem completely

I don’t think the American flag should be made into a T-Shirt.

We can play this game. May 5th is flag wearing day. If those students and parents in Northern California don’t revolt, then they’re the biggest wusses in the world.

Two in a row: Court: School can ban US flag shirts for safety

And which teaches that the way to get something banned is to start a riot. Which discriminates against those who do not. And if Christians responded with violence to the incessant offensive blasphemous material the media spews out, then the 9th would also ban it? Highly unlikely.

If schools were concerned about safety they wouldn’t ban the American flag they would ban violent minorities.

“Can American kids beat up mexican kids on May 5?”

In Hawaii the last day of school is Kill a Haole (Caucasian or foreigner) day. My son didn’t have to go to school on the last day. But it really wasn’t a problem in the sleepy North Shore community where we lived.

It’s also OK for cops to shoot anyone or anything these days because “they feared for their safety.”

So typically leftist -

instead of punishing the thugs who get violent towards people for wearing a flag shirt,

they ban the flag shirt.

Cinco de Mayo is a Mexican Holiday. Simply don’t celebrate it in American schools. Why ban the American flag for another countries holiday? The flag should have been allowed and the celebration cancelled during school hours.

“concerns of racial violence”
So you cannot show pride in America because some lame criminal may not like it.

My question is this:

Are the “latino” students ILLEGALS?

If so, those AMERICAN STUDENTS Freedom of Speech rights OUTWEIGH everything and anything, and the teachers need to be fired.

The other question is this:

Why aren’t the AMERICAN parents of the AMERICAN kids up there, in front of the school, waving American flags and demanding those teachers, administrators -whatever - be thrown out on their asses?

If they’re NOT willing to stand up at THIS level, it’s a safe bet that they won’t stand up when it gets bloody.

Metmom - Remember this story? Now the court has ruled AGAINST the students wearing U.S. flag t-shirts.

Abb posted the following link with more details:

Unbelievable. My 18yo just showed me this article, and here it is on FR. I told him: See what you missed out on in school?

Sink Ho Dee Mi Oh. Who cares. They cannot even run their own country so they come here illegally and want what we have earned by working for free. Come here, get a job, bring over grandmom and 14 cousins and get em all on welfare. Obama bragged of some old woman who is like 85, doesn’t speak a word of English, not a citizen, and gets all that free US government money. What a country. I’d be better off here as an illegal than a tax paying citizen.

If I remember the story correctly, the students wearing the American flag t-shirts in this case could be classified as “minorities,” too, based on their heritage. Yet, they all identify proudly as United States Americans, which, according to this ruling, they’re not allowed to do... at least not in school.

So, whether you’re white, black, or Latino, don’t even think about wearing a patriotic t-shirt to school. #sogladwehomeschool

How do you feel about our servicemen wearing flag patches on their uniforms?

ANOTHER REASON TO HOMESCHOOL

This ping list is for the “other” articles of interest to homeschoolers about education and public school. This can occasionally be a fairly high volume list. Articles pinged to the Another Reason to Homeschool List will be given the keyword of ARTH. (If I remember. If I forget, please feel free to add it yourself)

The main Homeschool Ping List handles the homeschool-specific articles. I hold both the Homeschool Ping List and the Another Reason to Homeschool Ping list. Please freepmail me to let me know if you would like to be added to or removed from either list, or both.

If not why not?

Because all the days you mentioned are either a holiday or during summer vacation?

But I get your point.

So typically leftist - instead of punishing the rapists who rape women, they ban women from wearing certain clothes.

Oh, no, I guess that won't happen, even though it is the same logic.
