    Yes I know, a person who is provoked by the site of an American flag doesn't hate America. Good show.

    Wow. This is a thoughtful response that takes case law such as Tinker into account.

    First, it's SIGHT, not site. Secondly, I've seen kids wearing all kinds of things to reflect gang affiliation and/or to stir up conflicts with rival groups at school.

    I don't think it was the flag that was causing the problem... tensions between whites and Mexicans... white kids baiting (like what goes on around here) Mexicans into a fight...

    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.


    So what if they're anti-government?

    No...the attitude that people can't show ethnic heritage pride and USE the American flag as a symbol to justify their hatred.
    THAT isn't showing respect and honor for the American flag or its ideals.

    Again though, if they made comments to the other kids then that should be what is used as the disturbance. However, saying that just wearing the American flag on a shirt is a disturbance is absurd IMHO.

    They should have never been sent home because of the shirts they were wearing, but because of theircomments if that is what happened.

    We both know it goes beyond that and has nothing to do with being anti-American. However, you seem to thrive on overreacting about things, so I don't expect reasoned or logical commentary on the issue from you.

    It doesn't really matter what was on their shirts. The fact is that they wore them to provoke and cause conflict. They even admitted this. That alone makes their punishment somewhat justified.

    I'm not disagreeing with you. I don't think they should have been sent home.

    But those who are trying to make it look like they were sent home because they were being patriotic and that sending them home was a sign of hating this country....are just hyper-partisans being intellectually dishonest.
