    I'm putting down and demeaning the jackass teenage boys who were too clever for their own good.

    And their mommies who stared blankly at Bill O'Reilly when he asked them: "Why?" Why did the little darlings choose that particular day to get all patriotic inside? No answer.

    Why should any day be banned from displaying pride for your own country, espically when you are the one standing in it?

    Anyway, yes, the little darlings thought they'd be cute and show their Mexican-American classmates a thing or two... Yuck-yuck, aren't we clever? We're Americans and this is America, so put down your silly guitars and take off those ridiculous costumes and get back work cleaning my house and mowing my lawn. And make me a taco while your at it.

    24hrs later...

    Mommy, tell them we were just being patriots. Why are they so mad at us? I think Consuela spit in my Tang. Why is she mad at me, mommy? We didn't mean anything by it.
    Whats more pathetic and sickening is you dont support these guys right to show their American pride on a day Americans have no business celebrating, yet, you seem to enjoy the actions of Ms. "Consuela" as justifiable.

    This is the problem with race relations is the USA. People react to something minor and not even directly offensive with violence and get applauded for it.

    Its just not acceptable. You sir, I question whether you are worthy of being American.

    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Religious Holiday does not compare with STATE holiday.

    This does not compute.

    So sad. So hypocritical. Silly flag code? Sounds like you don't have any respect for our flag at all. Another faux patriot. You probably think it's OK to burn it in protest.

    Context 2: You and three friends (all dressed like you) are standing off by yourselves, eyeing everyone else with distain.

    In which context are you likely to get your ass kicked?
    Why do you support a minority's violent reactions to non-violent messages?

    That is MY problem with your defense of this whole thing.





    But as described in the story, they were sitting off by themselves when several students approached them and asked why they chose to wear the flag bandanas and t-shirts.
    The idiots who approached them are not the persons you should be defending you know it.

    Why is it that liberals defend free expression up until its being used to express pro-America views?




    3)Lastly, the four boys didn't break any rules. Didn't violate school policy. They were just being dicks, plain and simple. Trying to push some buttons, get a reaction from other students.
    Why is it acceptable for Mexican-AMERICAN students to have a negative reaction to the American flag?

    Sorry, but it's not. There are religious holidays that are celebrated across nations and cultures and then there are state commemorations that are particular to a nation. Some are federally recognized while others are simply days of observance.

    So no, you are flat out wrong on this count.

    Of course it is. It's a piece of fabric.

    I'm a patriot for what the US flag stands for, not the piece of fabric itself. The piece of fabric itself is meaningless. Just cotton and dye. What it stands for is what's important.

    And hypocritical? How ya figure?
