Students Wearing American Flag Shirts Sent Home on Cinco de Mayo
A group of California high school students were sent home for wearing American flag t-shirts on Cinco de Mayo. An administrator at Live Oak High School told one of the students that the American flag t-shirt was â€śincendiary.â€ť
According to published reports, the five boys were sitting at a table when they were ordered to remove American flag bandannas and turn their flag t-shirts inside-out. When they refused, they were taken to the principalâ€™s office.
â€śThey told us basically we take it off or we can get suspended,â€ť Matthew Dariano told KCBA, the FOX affiliate in Monterey.
â€śThey said we could wear it on any other day, but today is sensitive to Mexican-Americans because itâ€™s supposed to be their holiday so we were not allowed to wear it today,â€ť said Daniel Galli, in an interview with the KTVU in San Francisco....
These Young Men Should Be Lauded--As They Were Only Following The Historic Example Of "LOS NINOS HEROES" !
LOS NINOS HEROES Or "THE HEROIC CHILDREN" Were Peasant Mexican Children, At THE BATTLE OF PUEBLA, Who Wrapped Themselves With The Flag Of THE REPUBLIC OF MEXICO & Vailently Fought To Their DEATHS--Helping DEFEAT The FRENCH & AUSTRIAN FORCES Of Maximilian's (& His Satanic-Vaticanist "Jesuit" Backed) "Empire Of Mexico" On "EL CINCO DE MAYO (THE 5th OF MAY) 1862 !
Please Don't Confuse The "NINOS HEROES" Of EL CINCO DE MAYO With The "Ninos Heroes" Of The Mexican-American War In 1847 !
LOS NINOS HEROES Of EL CINCO DE MAYO Were Peasants & Militarily Untrained--But LOYAL & FAITHFUL To The MEXICAN-REPUBLICAN FORCES Of BENITO JUAREZ: WHOM THEY ASSISTED IN OVERTHROWING THE FRENCH-AUSTRIAN OCCUPATION OF MEXICO IN THE EARLY 1860s.
HAD NOT U.S. PRESIDENT ABRAHAM LINCOLN QUIETLY GIVEN BENITO JUAREZ'S REPUBLICAN FORCES MILLIONS IN ARMAMENTS & SUPPORT--THERE WOULD BE NO "CINCO DE MAYO" CELEBRATIONS EVERY 5th OF MAY !
I can't wait until eight weeks from now when I get to go back to Obmaland. I was glad to leave it, but I would be lying if I said I wasn't pleading to come back right now. I miss my people, espescially the wife you know, way more than the country, and stories like these remind me of why I was happy to leave in the first place. This entire thing is insane. #1. like the previous post said, Mexican-Americans are now American, so why be offended by our own flag? #2. I am a white male with no latino blood in me as far as I know, and I can assure you that I still have a lot of fun on Cinco De Mayo...I was sad to miss celebrating it this year...I wouldn't enjoy it less seeing an American or Mexican flag. If it's a fun time, then have fun. #3. We don't have the right to be unoffended. People do a lot of offensive things. How wearing an American flag shirt or saying "Merry Christmas" became offensive is beyond me, but we do have freedom to say and do a lot of things in our country. I'm more offended by pants that are worn around the kids' knees than any particular T-shirt. I also wonder if they took down all the flags from the school for Cinco de Mayo or maybe they raised a Mexican flag just for that day.

It's not their holiday, any more than Festa della Liberazion is an Italian-American holiday. Cinco de Mayo is a Mexican holiday. Mexican-Americans are supposed to be Americans. If they are Americans, there is no reason for them to be offended at the American flag. If they're not, why are they here?
