    The United States at the time had the largest military in the world fighting the first modern war.
    The battle of Puebla, May 5 1862
    The Battle of Puebla took place on 5 May 1862 near the city of Puebla during the French intervention in Mexico. The battle ended in a victory for the Mexican Army over the occupying French forces. The French eventually overran the Mexicans in subsequent battles, but the Mexican victory at Puebla against a much better equipped and larger French army provided a significant morale boost to the Mexican army and also helped slow the French army's advance towards Mexico City.

    The Mexican victory is celebrated yearly on the fifth of May. Its celebration is regional in Mexico, primarily in the state of Puebla,[5][6][7][8] where the holiday is celebrated as El Día de la Batalla de Puebla (English: The Day of the Battle of Puebla).[9][10][11] There is some limited recognition of the holiday in other parts of the country. This holiday remains very popular in the United States where it is celebrated annually as Cinco de Mayo.
    In 1862, the US was fighting the Confederacy in a civil war.

    Napoleon III and the Southern USA:

    The Second French Empire remained officially neutral throughout the American Civil War and never recognized the Confederate States of America. The United States had warned that recognition meant war. France was too weak to act alone without British collaboration, and the British rejected intervention. Emperor Napoleon III realized that a war with the U.S. without allies "would spell disaster" for France.[1] However, the textile industry needed cotton, and Napoleon III had imperial ambitions in Mexico which could be greatly aided by the Confederacy. At the same time, other French political leaders, such as Foreign Minister Edouard Thouvenel, favored the United States.
    It's not a stretch at all to imagine Napoleon's forces, having a foothold in Mexico, invading the USA and at best prolonging the civil war, or, at worst, taking over the Confederacy. Without Juarez and his army, we could well have a French speaking nation where Dixieland is today.

    I was listening to some lawyers discussing the 9ths decision this morning on the radio. Only the American flag can be banned not the Mexican flag.

    Typical 9th Court decision.

    In the city of Santa Ana, Ca. which is mostly Mexican illegal aliens and anchor babies you see 4th of July fireworks stands that fly the Mexican flag instead of the Stars and Stripes.

    Today’s Dariano v. Morgan Hill Unified School Dist. (9th Cir. Feb. 27, 2014) upholds a California high school’s decision to forbid students from wearing American flag T-shirts on Cinco de Mayo. . . .

    At least one party to this appeal, student M.D., wore American flag clothing to school on Cinco de Mayo 2009. M.D. was approached by a male student who, in the words of the district court, “shoved a Mexican flag at him and said something in Spanish expressing anger at [M.D.’s] clothing.

    In the aftermath of the students’ departure from school, they received numerous threats from other students. D.G. was threatened by text message on May 6, and the same afternoon, received a threatening phone call from a caller saying he was outside of D.G.’s home. D.M. and M.D. were likewise threatened with violence, and a student at Live Oak overheard a group of classmates saying that some gang members would come down from San Jose to “take care of” the students. Because of these threats, the students did not go to school on May 7.

    We hold that school officials, namely Rodriguez, did not act unconstitutionally, under either the First Amendment or Article I, § 2(a) of the California Constitution, 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.

    This is a classic “heckler’s veto” — thugs threatening to attack the speaker, and government officials suppressing the speech to prevent such violence. “Heckler’s vetoes” are generally not allowed under First Amendment law; the government should generally protect the speaker and threaten to arrest the thugs, not suppress the speaker’s speech. But under Tinker‘s “forecast substantial disruption” test, such a heckler’s veto is indeed allowed.
    Oh I feel safer knowing I can be beaten to a pulp because I'm an American. What's next California? Mandatory tacos and burritos for lunch in public schools?

    I don't think so either, but the problem isn't with the kids in the America t-shirts. If the group celebrating Cinco de Mayo sees it as mutually exclusive to celebrating American pride then that group can pound sand and celebrate somewhere else.

    The fact that the 6500 French forces lost to 4500 Mexican forces is a pretty clear indicator that the US had little to fear from the French. When Sherman began his march on the south he commanded 62,000 battle hardened troops who would have made mince meat of any French forces trying to interfere or take US land.

    It's a long stretch.

    And there's no way Great Britain would allow France to intervene.

    There's a British connection to leading up to the Civil War. They were playing both sides. It was all about the cotton trade.

    Mexico has always been a basket case and still is today. Mexico has been invaded by foreign military forces five times since they gained their independence from Spain. Once by France, once by Great Britain and three times by the United States. They say that's why Mexico has an inferiority complex. When people have an inferiority complex, they run away from their problems. In Mexico's case they run towards El Norte. The only problem being, they bring their problems with them.

    It's already mandatory that tacos, burritos and chilies be served in many of the county jails in California.

    If they were to react, the Obama administration would have them court martialed and drummed out of the service for violating liberal PC sensitivity regulations.
