It's America and it was the 5th of May

1. It's not Mexican Independence Day (which is 16 September).

2. Cinco de Mayo is a holiday celebrated only in the Mexican state of Puebla and is not a national holiday in Mexico.

3. Cinco de Mayo celebrations started in America (California) in resistance to the French occupation of Mexico.

4. This is America.

5. The flag on top is our flag (If you're in Mexico feel free to reverse the placement).

6. If you are in America, you can display this flag any time you want, despite what some jackass high school assistant principal says.

Live Oak High School threatens to suspend 5 students for wearing the American flag, while hundreds sport the Mexican flag.

I think I can speak on behalf of Western Hero when I say we salute:
Dominic Maciel, Matthew Dariano, Clayton Howard, Daniel Galli, and Austin Carvalho

Way to go boys!!!

I might also point out that the first three are of American-Mexican heritage.

Personally, I would like to say that assistant principal Miguel Rodriguez can go pound sand, his lame excuse that wearing the flag put the five American boys in danger would seriously call into question his ability to properly supervise his school. If wearing the flag put the boys in danger, it is not the boys fault and he really needs to do something about the Mexican racists in his school.

I also look forward to his resignation, so that in abject shame he can go back to school and make up the class on American history and constitutional law that he obviously miserably failed.

sounds like a parent...this is for your own good that we are sending you home!

Good for them!! If the principal was right to send them home then all of the students in Mexican flag shirts should have been sent home too.

Obviously there had been no incitements to violence since none were reported. It is the principal himself who needs to be suspended for this civil rights violation and frankly, for being a bigot.

TKZ, of course the bonehead will probably try to take credit for the lack of violence....

see what I prevented?

All we have to do is look around Reverend. The Mexicans who are here are good people, we just have failed to assimilate them into our American melting pot culture. They live on the fringes, so they are instead assimilated into global progressivism by the angry, entitlement-based left.

Do we want to look like Mexico and Pakistan, or do we want them to adopt our culture?

On a related note, we need only look to Greece to see where the welfare state ends up.

Outstanding post, Finn! You stole my thunder (you must have peeked at my blogger in draft!)

You said it way better than I could have. There is no freedom to not be offended in this country.

Also, the ignorance of those celebrating this is stunning.

And yes, you do speak for Western Hero when you salute these brave and patriotic young men and their stalwart parents who refuse to bow down at the profane, decrepit altar of political correctness.
