    Really how is showing the American flag offensive to anyone who doesn't hate this country?

    What part of this are you not getting?
    The part about you claiming that people who can be provoked by the site of an American flag not hating America.

    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.
    Sending them home was proof positive that the American flag has a lower status than the Mexican flag in this school.

    Oh, good lord. Is it fun overreacting about non-issues?

    If a Mexican kid is allowed to show his love of a foreign country in this country but an American kid isn't allowed to show his love of his country in his own country then something is seriously ****ed up here.
    I'll repeat: It had NOTHING to do with showing his love for this country. It had to do with provoking other students. They said so themselves. I'm not going to repeat this to you again, as you obviously have a problem comprehending this. I'm now going to cease discussing it with you as nothing further can be gained by discussing this with someone who refuses to comprehend simple logic and overreacts over silly things.

    Once again it is illogical to assert that someone who doesn't hate this country would be provoked by the sight of an American flag. I understand that you want to wax apologetics for such an obviously anti-American/pro-invader policy as banning the American flag but don't ever for a second pretend that you give a flying **** about the first amendment.

    Denying citizens their First Amendment freedom is a non-issue?

    One-way tickets to Tijuana would do the trick.

    Well, you implant them with a gps triggered explosive, or at least you tell them that's been done, and if they come back, their vertebrae will explode.
