Americans now 'racist' for waving American flag
WND Education ^ | 5 May, 2014 | Bob Unruh

Posted on 05/07/2014 6:39:10 AM PDT by LucianOfSamasota

Americans now are being blasted as “racist” for the simple act of waving an American flag.

It happened Monday in California to a small group of protesters who waved U.S. flags in front of a school where officials had banned the practice to avoid violence threatened by Hispanic students celebrating Cinco de Mayo.

The controversy developed in 2010, when school officials ordered students not to wear U.S. flag-themed shirts on the Mexican holiday. The ban has been upheld by a federal appeals court.

The controversy brought a small group of protesters out Monday, and the community reacted immediately.

“What’s wrong with these white people holding up American flags in Morgan hill??? Racist a–holes,” wrote Gia Lee in a feed monitored by Twitchy.

Mexican students allegedly had threatened violence because of the shirts, and school officials, consequently, suspended the right of other students to wear Old Glory.

Twitchy caught Davey D blasting the patriots: “Shout out to the racist a– adults, so-called patriots who are posted up at Live Oak HS in Morgan Hill protesting Cinco de Mayo #idiots.”

“The Gilroy Morgan Hill Patriots … what a bunch of racist d–k-heads!! I think they may be part owners of the LA Clippers. #racist,” wrote Jorge P. Gonzalez.

“Hey folks in Morgan Hill. You have some racist neighbors. You need to check those tea party a–holes,” said Al_Bondigas.

“F— your American flag. Racist as f—s. I’ll always have pride with my Mexican flag but not the American one,” wrote Ivan Mora.

Plenty of room for the Mexican flag in Mexico. Don't we require an oath of allegiance for citizenship?

A three-judge panel of the court earlier had said: “The specific events of May 5, 2010, and the pattern of which those events were a part made it reasonable for school officials to proceed as though the threat of a potentially violent disturbance was real. We hold that school officials … did not act unconstitutionally … in asking students to turn their shirts inside out, remove them, or leave school for the day with an excused absence in order to prevent substantial disruption or violence at school.

Beautiful. Free speech unless a preferred group threatens violence. Mob rule, thanks to the judiciary.

Yyyyyyeahhhhh. If it wasn't for violent disturbances by the people of Puebla, there would be no Cinco de Mayo.

The calendar would go straight from Quatro de Mayo to (whatever the Mexican word for "sixth" is) de Mayo.

Americans need to wake up. All of the epithets thrown at them one a daily basis - all of the isms - are NOT intended to correct wrongs or make America a more tolerant place.

They are being used to suppress and eventually oppress.

These people - the race hustlers, feminists, the gays - are not interested in the least in equality. They want to rule.

Greenfield wrote brilliantly about this issue just yesterday.

Are You the Biggest Victim?

Progressive politics reward those who scream the loudest and threaten or commit violence. This is jihad writ large. We have succumbed to Shariah law. Criminals are the big winners in today's fear driven culture.

Exactly. And if it’s this way now, what will it be like when immigrants and children of immigrants are the majority? Someday our grandchildren will be a despised and persecuted minority.

“language of Spanish Conquistadors. “

Illegal aliens don’t even speak proper Spanish. Bits and pieces of it, but loaded with ignorant slang; like calling a truck a ‘trucka’ instead of the proper Spanish word ‘camion’.

Unfortunately America has not learned from history/Europe what happens when you let parasitic foreigners into your country and our leadership has done nothing but encourage it.

We should invade Mexico and confiscate their natural resources as payment for supporting its population.

Hispanic students celebrating Cinco de Mayo

This hallowed observance is not observed in Mexico. Just here. My college-age daughter says that because of the special rites and customs associated with it, it is referred to as "Drinko de Mayo."

Cinco de Mayo isn’t even a Mexican holiday. It’s sort of an American “St. Patrick’s Day” celebrating Mexico. And yes, I know about the Battle of Puebla, but it isn’t celebrated very much in Mexico.

These people, by pledging allegiance to the Flag of Mexico,

have properly identified themselves as “SUBJECTS OF A FOREIGN STATE” under Amendment 11
,
and also as agents of a foreign principals under FARA 1938

“Amendment 11 - Judicial Limits. Ratified 2/7/1795. Note History

The Judicial power of the United States shall not be construed to extend to any suit in law or equity, commenced or prosecuted against one of the United States by Citizens of another State, or by Citizens or Subjects of any Foreign State

Thus they all have to register with the US Govt as agents of a foreign country immediately or be designated as spies and summarily dealt with per US Dept. of Defense/old Dept of War precedents.

“The Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) was enacted in 1938. FARA is a disclosure statute that requires persons acting as agents of foreign principals in a political or quasi-political capacity to make periodic public disclosure of their relationship with the foreign principal, as well as activities, receipts and disbursements in support of those activities. Disclosure of the required information facilitates evaluation by the government and the American people of the statements and activities of such persons in light of their function as foreign agents. The FARA Registration Unit of the Counterespionage Section (CES) in the National Security Division (NSD) is responsible for the administration and enforcement of the Act.

Public information relating to the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) may be obtained in person at the FARA Registration Unit Public Office located at:

In point of fact Cinqo de Mayo was first designated by a brewery.

I might be able to forestall any liberal repost on such a statement. Up Canada way, the Toronto Star (left wing newspaper) trumpeted a headline, over five years ago, that the City of Toronto would have a majority of minorities eventually.

A conversation was reported that a defensive white woman had brightly stated.

Then WE will have the advantages of being a minority.

I presume she meant that the slavish and mindless worship of minorities in Canada, would transfer to the whites. Another woman, I presume a white liberal replied- "THAT'S what YOU think." The liberal wishes a sort of pay back punishment for being white. It does not apply to themselves, of course.

Spread the word.

Plenty of room for the Mexican flag in Mexico.

You can also be sure that not too many Mexican kids get suspended from school for preferring their nation's flag to the US flag.
