    No because the Irish came here with the intention of becoming Americans. They understand that they arrived as guests and earned a place with dedication to building America rather than arriving as invaders with insolence and contempt for American laws and values.

    Exactly ... respect the land you are in while remembering your heritage. This is what America was built on...

    What I'd like to know is did these 4 students say the pledge that morning. If they did then they are the biggest hypocrits on the planet. In fact, if the school said the pledge that morning, then THEY are the biggest hypocrits on the planet.

    What about the flag that's in just about every classroom in every school? Were those taken down? If not, why take a flag bandana off a kid's head?

    The hypocrisy is so thick it's blinding.

    Stand by what you say all you want. It's still irrelevant partisan hackery.

    Proving that you do not know what a progressive-liberal would think.

    As one, I think it is pretty silly for the principle to have done what he did. Perhaps, as Catz speculated, there may be some sort of motive surrounding some school issues, but if not, displaying the American flag on one's shirt... though technically against the US Flag Code, in no way "disrespects" Cinco de Mayo or Mexico. No one is required to celebrate any holiday.

    Which is actually pretty irrelevant. Should conservatives get condemned each time a stupid conservative does something stupid?

    Nah...even on American Independence day...a Mexican...in AMERICA...expressing his pride in being FROM Mexico is STILL a compliment to America.

    Yeah, but conservatives are born that way.

    Now, shall we ALL stop the idiotic partisan hackery and discuss the issue... or shall we continue to make dumb overgeneralized partisan remarks that are irrelevant to the issue.

    there's a difference there though, 4th of july celebrates the birth of a nation, cinco de watsy just celebrates a victory that has nothing to do with america in any way.
