Students Sent Home From School For Displaying American Flag

Ask yourselves, why such a fuss over Cinco De Mayo in America, but it is largely ignored in Mexico? If Mexico largely ignores the day, why are students in America chastised for displaying American Flag memorbelia on the 5th of May?

For those who felt offended at American students wearing Red, White & Blue clothing and honoring the American Flag, if you think what Mexico offers is better, please exercise your freedom to cross the southern border, legally or illegally, your choice, and help them create the Mexican Paradise you think exists there.

As a Veteran who went to war under that flag, I served alongside Mexican-Americans, Cubans who barely spoke English, Blacks, White, Indians, whatever ethnicity exists in America. We did not fly any other flag and we all fought under the same flag, the American Flag.

How dare any of you cry “it’s disrespectful” to display any variant of the American Flag inside of America, just because it is the 5th of May and you think it is a day to honor in Mexico.

Enjoy the 5th of May and whatever created celebrations you desire on May 5, but do not decide America ceases to exist on that day.

If America offends you that much, maybe you are living in the wrong country.

  1. Here is an update on your story Lew. Basically it says that the principal apologizes…

  2. He should do more than apologize. It is utterly ridiculous that a display of an American Flag or our National Colors should ever been deemed inappropriate because someone takes ethnic umbrage to our Flag.

    As I said, if it offends them, they must be in the wrong country.

    I read in the story, “More than 200 Hispanic students reportedly skipped class on Thursday and marched to school district headquarters while chanting “we want respect” and “si se puede” — “yes we can,” “

    Does the notion of respect for the country they live in and take advantage of not enter their minds?

    Perhaps those 200 should try pulling their stunt in Mexico and see what it gains them.
