Skip to comments.American Flag T-shirt Uproar: Cinco de Mayo Revives Anxiety, Anticipation and Anger in Morgan Hill

The days leading up to Cinco de Mayo have put this bucolic burg on edge.
A "patriot" group, a mysterious band of bikers and a right-wing radio host from Los Angeles are urging Californians to protest outside a Morgan Hill high school where school officials four years ago told some students to turn their American flag T-shirts inside out -- or go home.
Many Morgan Hill residents had hoped the nationwide controversy spurred by the order had died down. But a recent federal appeals court ruling in favor of the administration has resurrected the fiery issue, and opponents plan on picketing the high school on Monday's Mexican holiday.

The Mexicans will say they are just as American as us (true enough). Most of them who are in the USA illegally are almost always offended by the flag of the United States. Most illegals rally around the flag of Mexico— not the United States. Screw ‘em!
The damage of Progressives in the courts is a real problem that keeps on stealing our liberties. We could sweep the Congress and Executive, but the Judicial branch sticks for years and years. That is why we need to fight liberal judges.
I am guessing you are wrong. The people who hate the flag are non-hispanic U.S. leftists.
Really? Ask any hispanic "immigrant", who barely speaks English, what country is their "home country"? And, then ask those that have been here for over twenty years. How many do you think will answer "The United States"?
....and Cinco de Mayo started being celebrated in the U.S. - and only sporadically in certain regions of Mexico - to this day.
What does that have to do with hating the U.S. flag?
Hmmmmm... Because, after even decades here, they see their home country flag as above the one they live under. Maybe not "hate" but certainly no respect.
Do you believe everything the media tells you?
Nope. These assertions are based on years of experience. I work in industry populated by hispanic "immigrants". To a one they all respond in the way I described.
You just want to let leftists run amok and never be held accountable.
Cinco de Mayo is about as authentic as Kwaanza.....
“The Mexicans will say they are just as American as us (true enough)”
In fact that statement is ridiculous.
The ridiculous students of Live Oak (and this was 4 years ago) LEFT the school grounds carrying a MEXICAN flag chanting La Raza slogans. There is NOTHING about that that is AMERICAN.
The lefties try and co-op the language by making US citizens ashamed to speak of America as a unique place. Central America, South America, Canada, Mexico, latin America, the Americas....NONE of those are ANYTHING like America
I live in the Ghetto after 911 thats all you saw around here
Go to Mexico on May 5th and see if it’s celebrated.
I don’t think it’s even mentioned.
Is that on the right thread?
Still see them? I was talking about hispanics.
Why you’re an imperialist! Mexico in in North America. It’s a game that’s played on us.
May 5th is Karl Marx Birthday.
Boycott any businesses that celebrate the fake holiday of AntiAmericanism. If Mexicans want to celebrate it, go HOME.
