Students Kicked Off Campus for Wearing American Flag To School

In my life I've seen and experience stupid.  But the teachers and administration at Live Oak High School in Morgan Hill, California, have taken it to a new level.  To paraphrase Forrest Gump, "Stupid is as Live Oak High does."  This is what happens when you let multiculteralism and political correctness reign supreme.

For a student to be denied the right to display the American flag on any day of the school year in deference to another flag is the most asinine and blatantly un-American thing I've ever heard.  If I were a parent in Morgan Hill, I would be asking for a complete turnover of staff there.  It would be better to school your children at home than send them to a school like this and I would encourage the students to file a lawsuit against the school.

As for the student that said she was being "disrespected" because Americans would dare to wear an American Flag on Cinco de Mayo, I would advise her to use her time in school to learn proper English.  Respect is earned.  It is not a right.  And Cinco de Mayo is not an American holiday.  It is a holiday celebrating the Mexican defeat of the French who were governing under an Austrian dictator.  Hello?  Beating the French in war is no great accomplishment but considering Mexico's current reputation and government under Calderon, that may be their greatest achievement.
