Today, in protest for the "insult" of having a their "Mexican heritage" day "mexican" students walked out of that same school. When I was a kid in school, this would be called "skipping" class and we'd be suspended. Yet it appears that these students won't be punished.
"Mexican-American" walked out in protest of the five students who they say "offended them" by wearing the American Flag clothes yesterday on Cinco de Mayo. They held a small rally at the Morgan Hill Civic Center and demanded to see the Mayor.Sorry, but the last time I checked, California was an American State, not a Mexican province. If they want to celebrate Mexican heritage, move to Mexico and live the heritage of corruption and poverty that is the true "heritage" of Mexico.
Students showing their Mexican-American pride walked out of class at Live Oak High School on Thursday, and rallied at the Morgan Hill Civic Center, calling the actions of the students who wore the American T-shirts on Cinco de Mayo offensive. They also demanded to speak with the mayor.Those students who were sent home for wearing an American flag t-shirt should appologize? I don't think so. Those students who left school shoud be suspended for leaving school without permission. Additionally, the Vice Principal who force students to leave school for wearing an America flag should be suspended, if not terminated. Yet that won't happen...because his last name is Rodriguez. He'll probably be commended by the politically correct school system that teaches,
"I think they should apologize because it is a Mexican heritage day," Annicia Nunez, a Live Oak High student, told NBC BayArea. "We don't deserve to be disrespected like that. We wouldn't do that on Fourth of July."
All of this stems from the parents and the community they self-segregate themselves in. This community teaches them to think "Mexico First". The Constitution of the United States does not exist in their eyes.Thus is a measure of how political correctness has utterly corrupted our school systems. It's well past time that we reinstitute the teaching of American history in schools.
UPDATE: Via Instapundit. Here is video of the interview of a couple of the kids kicked out of school for wearing an American flag T-shirt. But here are the real money quotes:
“I never thought I’d be on national TV for wearing an American flag shirt.”
“What seems to elude people in this incident is that everyone has the right to express themselves on every day of the year in the US, and that ’some people may be offended’ is no just cause for censorship.”
That's the problem, we have become so politically correct in this country that freedom of speech is falling by the wayside. You don't have a right to be offended. Can you be offended? Certainly, but that doesn't give you the right to censor my speech.
