    If the American flag causes disruption at this school then it has no business staying open and being funded through the stolen property of American citizens.

    Perhaps students found it offensive and were causing a disturbance.

    Students are not allowed to just walk around the school removing banners and flags at their personal whim. Yeah, he should receive a suspension, though preferably in-school.
    American flag = fair game.

    Mexican flag = off limits.

    Gotcha.

    Did it ever occur to you that perhaps the offense had nothing to do with the American flag and had everything to do with the attitudes and actions of a select few that wanted to cause a disturbance?

    I don't know why people try to turn the argument into this bs about hating America. The kids who wore these flags admitted that they were doing so to provoke. How does that translate into hispanic people hating America? Obviously they weren't offended by the American flag based on what it represents. That's absurd.

    You mean the attitude that they have the right to wear the American flag on American soil? **** these kids, they're anti-American little ****s, they need to be expelled and the principle needs to be fired.

    And if someone wearing the American flag provokes someone then that someone obviously has a problem with America.

    Give me a ****ing break, what's absurd is the idiotic assertion that someone who is provoked by the American flag isn't anti-American.

    Perhaps if you rely on hyperbole and absurd talking points.

    Try to wrap your head around this big concept...

    The flag is a symbol of the freedom to burn it...in a safe manner with a permit.
