    do try to keep up. it was the school admins being afraid that there might be some muslim kids offended by seeing the flag. there is a difference.

    Nope, not Muslims.Texmaster would have won this bet.

    "(The) First Amendment is important," Parraz said. "We want the kids to respect it, understand it, and with that comes a responsibility."

    Parraz said racial tensions boiled over at the school this year around the Cinco de Mayo holiday.

    "Our Hispanic, you know, kids will, you know, bring their Mexican flags and they'll display it, and then of course the kids would do the American flag situation, and it does cause kind of a racial tension which we don't really want," Parraz said. "We want them to appreciate the cultures."

    It's becoming increasingly common for regressives to say "Nuh uh, YOU are the one who is _____."

    When currently engaged in ______.

    "Pssh. You liberals believe anything that supports global warming without question, and you wont listen to counter evidence. Everything scientists have told you is false! Here's a blog that I'm going to view as undeniable proof that I'm right!"

    Well... I dunno. I think they secretly know. But hide behind ze purity of ze flag.

    *context of video may not be accurate*
    Am I the only one who thinks that they all should have been proudly carrying the AMERICAN flag if they ever want to get anywhere with immigration reform? What is it they want? Do they want to turn the US into Mexico? That's not the way to win people over to their side.
    The only hate I saw was from them and not the kids with the American flags.
    This video was disgusting and sure didn't do anything to win me over to their side. If they think Mexico is so great and the American flag offends them, they need to go back to Mexico.
    Make room for those immigrants who come here to assimilate and who love America and her flag.

    It's incidents like the one in the video that make people like this. Kids used to be able to take pocketknives to school. Now they can get expelled for wielding a push pin threateningly.
    They don't get that the american flag isnt offensive. Only when it's used offensively. Whoever made the decision suffered a lack of brains.
    How can it be used offensively, unless someone is burning or stomping on it? That's a bit offensive to me, but still legal.

    Right?
    Washington was a lot of things besides a slave owner. He was a general, a politician, one of the founding fathers, and more. Also, there are plenty of motivations to study his presidency. Anything from intellectual interest to having to cram to take a test to research for a debate and everything in between. I would think that in order to approve of his slave owning, one would have to specifically motivated towards that end, moreso than other legitimite reasons to learn about the guy.

    Most Muslim immigrants I know are extremely patriotic, because they know what it's like to live under an oppressive regime and have found a better lives for themselves here.

    I'm sorry that some people find living in this country so distasteful. The good news is that we have both a northern and southern border shared with other countries. Those who are offended by America should feel free to go to either one.

    There used to be an America flag in every classroom. How did we ever get here where the American flag can be a no-no anywhere, much less on a kids bike. I think every patriotic kid/parent in that school should put a flag on their cars, bikes and houses.
