Today is Cinco de Mayo, and a display of American flags was organized near a high school in Morgan Hill, California, which was the site of controversy four years ago:

The case began in 2010, when four boys wearing t-shirts bearing American flags on Cinco de Mayo, when the school was decked out in Mexican flags, were told to turn the shirts inside-out, or go home.

Remembering that day, several people were waving American flags today at Live Oak High:

A repeat of the 2010 incident will not happen this year, according to the school superintendent:

Read that sentence again and then cringe at the fact that had to be said in the United States.

Apparently for some, displaying the American flag in the United States on Cinco de Mayo is “racist” or something:

        I worked grocery retail for 30 years, it’s another marketed holiday pushed by supermarkets to increase sales. Holidays boost sales immensely, Christmas the big one, but everybody wants alcohol, snacks, treats of every kind… that is why a little known Mexican holiday became another let’s party occasion, it boosted retail sales.

        that radical la raza types tried to make it, shame the yankee day,… that is on them.

        The teeets were ignorant, stupid, these tools are defending the racist Hispanic hijacking of the day to insult and defame the nation they ran too, when they were finished ruining their owm countries..

        St. Patrick’s Day is a religious holiday, but it happened to be we Americans who turned it into a celebration of Irish heritage pride. In turn, our style of celebrating it went back to the shores of Ireland and it’s now paraded around there as much as it is here. America possesses an awesome knack for taking things and improving upon them, and then spreading the ideas to the world at-large.

      That isn’t really even celebrated in Mexico. Mostly celebrated in the northern states.

          We’re still allowed to celebrate Columbus Day?

    • Ty in TX ✓ᵇᵒⁿᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      Because people are allowed to retain their ethnicity even if they’ve changed citizenship.
      Now I know technically Cinco is a Mexican holiday, but in a broader sense it is a celebration of freedom and an excuse to party, just like St. Patrick’s Day and Mardi Gras.

    • Republicanvet

      …a “holiday” celebrated MORE in the US than Mexico.

      • therealguyfaux ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

        If the truth were known, outside of parades in Dublin in recent years, Paddy’s Day has always been celebrated more in the US than in Ireland as a festive occasion. In the Republic, it was a Holy Day of Obligation– a religious day on which you had to go to church to hear Mass. In the North, not so much.

        Contrast it to the States, where due to Paddy’s Day falling during Lent, the Bishops have always had to issue a special dispensation to the “faithful” for them to be able to eat corned beef and cabbage and drink Guinness to excess.

    • Sherri Cruz (D-Ret)

      Especially a “holiday” that is not generally celebrated in Mexico. It is as much a “real” holiday as St. Patrick’s Day.

      • hooligan6a

        But we fly the US flag on St Patrick’s day. Proud Irish Americans.

        • Sherri Cruz (D-Ret)

          Quite true! You don’t hear us screaming that we are “offended” by the American flag.

      The ridiculous part is that it isn’t a Mexican holiday. It’s an American holiday. Americans of Mexican descent wanted this to acknowledge their ancestral contribution to preserving the Union in the Civil War.

    • savetheRepublic2016

      I’m still at a loss why the military commissary near me celebrates it.

    • paulinnaples

      Corona beer marketing department made it into a holiday.

    • Archer305

      Think of it this way… New Years –> DRINK (whatever you want)! St. Patty’s –> DRINK (Irish beer and whiskey) ! Cico de Mayo –> get tacos and DRINK(margarita’s, Mexican beer, etc)! Pi day –> Eat Pie and DRINK!

      I know I was stretching on that last one (even thought that is what I do on pi day) but you catch my drift… It is a convenient excuse (or privilege, depending on how you look at it) to get people mobilized to do something different than the previous day.

    • TheKingJAK

      To be honest, it’s simply a Mexican-American holiday celebrating heritage pride. Most of Mexico never celebrated it until it became popular in America, and yes, it was actually invented here during the Civil War. It’s an American holiday, so we own it, and don’t allow for anyone to make you think differently 😉

    • American

    I am of Mexican decent. I cannot comprehend how every subject has to have race injected into it. Wearing american flag apparel or waving american flags on any holiday is OK, this is the USA, the flag can be flown and displayed any day of the week without meaning something other than patriotism. And who are these folks claiming that Cinco de Mayo is an important Mexican holiday? Outside of Puebla, no one in Mexico celebrates this “holiday” – I have lived in Chihuahua for most of my life and never heard of this as a holiday until i moved to the States, legally by the way.

      All ethnicities or identifiable population blocs want their own feel-good holiday, it seems. The unreconstructed Rebels had Robert E.

Works out nice for everybody!

      • mrspinky85

        I don’t take issue with anyone celebrate any holiday. My issue is how did this exploded into a day Americans are chastised for displaying or wearing an American flag. When did our flag displaying become racist?

    • JosephBloughs ✓Viagrafied

      Exactly, it’s a holiday to eat good food and drink plenty of cerveza/tequila etc. Which is fine, nothing wrong with that. But it has practically zero significance south of the border.

      I too have Mexican ancestry, but I’m so glad to be a proud U.S. citizen. I am thankful that my father never allowed “La Raza” drivel to indoctrinate me when I was younger, and still passionately resists that nonsense to this day (sadly, a minority-within-a-minority in that regard). If people up here actually understood what the Spanish language media here in the U.S. says everyday, they would be stunned at how much progressive liberal racist Barbra Streisand gets spewed there without apology. English language media is pretty bad, yes, but it has nothing over Spanish programming in that regard.

        • Frogmouth

          How is it incorrect?
          One kid whacks the piñata and may or may not be able to scramble fast enough to get a share of the loot. Traditionally, the one with the stick is blindfolded, which adds yet another penalty to the batter.
          The rest of the kids do nothing except grab as much candy as they can when it hits the ground. Well, that and taunt the blindfolded batter.
          I guess the Cinco de Mayo bit is misleading as piñatas are featured prominently at birthday parties as well.

          • Determined

            Usually several kids hit the pinata. pinatas are for birthday parties generally. it is a stupid and trite and inaccurate comparison.

    You just know if those people standing in line with those American flags had then taken a lighter to them, they’d be the bestest, greatest most free thinkers ever and an example for the students. -_-

  • schveiguy

    Just FYI, May 5th predates the country of Mexico.

    • Frogmouth

      And July 4th predate the USofA.

      What’s your point?

      • schveiguy

        That Mexico doesn’t “own” May 5th. So not celebrating Mexico on May 5th is allowed. The idea that anyone should be punished for not celebrating it is quite fascist.

        Of course July 4th is the same, you are allowed not to celebrate it.

        • Frogmouth

          Ah. So we are in agreement on that, at least.

          I wonder if it would be okay to wave FRENCH flags on May 5th?

          • Spiny Norman

            I’d wager none of the “racism!!!” Twits would get it.

          • schveiguy

            It’s never OK to wave french flags.

          • Frogmouth

            Hey, say what you will but the French were invaluable allies in a little fight for independence here in North America.

          • schveiguy

            ‘Twas a silly response to a silly question :)

          • Thale Taxurfeet

            ” the French were invaluable allies in a little fight for independence here in North America.”

            Indeed. And a classic example of that old saw, The enemy of my enemy is my friend.

          • Frogmouth

            Hey, say what you will but the French were invaluable allies in a little fight for independence here in North America.

      • Hey, That’s Pretty Good

        But does anyone here in the US say hateful things about people who have flags from other countries up on the Fourth of July? If it’s racist to display the American flag (in America mind you) on a Mexican Holiday, shouldn’t it be okay to demand that any latino families who display their flag outside their home to remove said flag on the US Holiday?

  • World B. Free

    In a sane world, people like Ivan Mora would be getting a visit from the INS.

    But in the upside down world of 0bama and the far left, the CITIZENS holding the flags will get a visit from the IRS.

    • Frogmouth

      Smart money says he was born here, possibly to illegals. But Mexico is teh awesum because he’s Mexican.

      Pretty common mindset among many “immigrants” who have never even visited their “homeland”. People whose great grandparents left Italy or Ireland or wherever still calling themselves Italian or Irish. Not even hyphenated.

      This country is supposed to be the great melting pot. Except people stopped melting sometime in the middle of the 20th Century.

      • Spiny Norman

        Smart money says he was born here, possibly to illegals. But Mexico is teh awesum because he’s Mexican.

        Idiots like Ivan Mora insist this IS Mexico.

      • Leende

        Whats the difference then calling somebody African American

        • Frogmouth

          Equally asinine.

          • Thale Taxurfeet
          • Leende

            If you call black people African Americans why can’t white people say irish American. A Africian American is a black person who was born in Africa and came to America and became a citizen. Unless of course they are white Africians.

          • Frogmouth

            So white Africans aren’t Africans? Interesting. Totally racist, but still…

          • Leende

            Don’t play the race card on me it doesn’t work. White Africians are Africans. If people didnt play the race card they would have nothing to argure with.

          • Frogmouth

            You said “A Africian American is a black person who was born in Africa and came to
            America and became a citizen. Unless of course they are white
            Africians.”

            By your logic a white African who comes to America and becomes a citizen isn’t African American.

  • IrishLaw73

    So, next March 17th, it will be perfectly acceptable for me to scream “Racist” at anyone not wearing an Irish flag? Good to know…

    • QueenB

      Maybe you can help me better understand how I can deal with St. Patrick’s Day. I have red hair, so it is always assumed that I am Irish. I am not, I’m Scottish. So, do I get to be offended on St. Patrick’s Day? Help!

      • Thale Taxurfeet

        Heh…

        My paternal side is Scottish, the maternal side Irish… We’ve been known to fight at the drop of a hat. And over the course of my long life, many a hat has dropped. Afterwards, there is little offense retained nor in most cases, is there any recollection of what started the whole mess.

        *looks at watch.. aw what the heck* Salute! *hoists a beer*

        • QueenB

          An Englishman, an Irishman and a Scotsman walk into a bar and get their lagers. A fly lands in each one. The Englishman says, “bartender! Take this drink back! I will not drink something a fly landed in!” The Irishman flicks the fly off the head of his lager and proceeds to drink. The Scotsman picks the fly up by its wing, looks at it and says, “spit it out! Spit it out!!!!”

      • IrishLaw73

        Excellent question! Well, you could do what 99% of the universe does and PRETEND you’re Irish on St. Patrick’s Day or start celebrating William Wallace’s birthday and get offended on THAT day. Or, since redheads are a minority among hair color…you can just be offended all the time because “ginger discrimination” is like, a huge deal. :)

        • QueenB

          It totally is and where are my reparations!?

  • kateorjane

    Ivan Mora’s tweet is a perfect example of the problem. If he’s so proud of “his” Mexican flag and not the American flag perhaps he should haul his sorry arse down to Mexico where he can fly it all he wants.

    • Ms. Abigail van Beagle

      There’s the thing-he can fly it all he wants HERE!
      It’s the American flag they’re trying to censor.
      He could have it both ways. Tolerate our flag and we’ll tolerate yours.

  • DJ_USMC_Ret

    This is one of the most disappointing situations that is happening. There should never be a day where someone is not allowed to wear the colors of the USA flag or present the flag. There is nothing racist about displaying the flag. I understand about being proud of ones heritage but if you have a desire to live in this country and become a citizen you need to have pride in this nation and put this nation # 1. Anyone not willing to do that should leave. It does not matter is you are Democratic, Republican, Independent, or whatever; this country stays the #1 priority. Now everyone wonders why there is opposition to Immigration reform. This is one reason why you cannot just grant those here illegally, legal statuses. You cannot have loyalty to any other country over this one. PATRIOTIOSM IS NOT RACISM. If you are offended by the flag relocate to a place where you have pride in that country.

  • alanstorm

      For some individuals, the more you try to accommodate and assist, the more they resent you. This seems to be a problem with communities and segments of society who would rather stand apart than join in.

      The more intolerant the fringe becomes, the less tolerance they can expect to receive. Enough is enough!

  • World B. Free

    Well, I do know this: I’m having chicken tacos tonight for dinner. Not to celebrate anything, it’s just what I feel like having. My American flag will be out in front of my house, just so everyone knows what an evil racist I am.

    • Thale Taxurfeet

      “My American flag will be out in front of my house”

      Aye. Mine is always flying, complete with floods on her at night.

      I along with most of the males in my family going back generations have served this Nation at one time or another. All gave some…

      This symbol, our flag, stands for more than can be explained in a brief comment. I’ll fly our flag anywhere in the nation, at anytime.

    Funny how all these people bitching about the 1st Amendment never want to leave America and go somewhere less tolerant of free speech. Well, not so much “funny,” as “completely expected of mental midgets with thin-skins.” It’s a thin line… possibly red.

  • mrspinky85

    I’m at a lost of how this is racist. I served my country and will wear the flag where I want to!
    You love Mexico so much guy that you live here. Cool, thing about America is that you can celebrate your holiday and wear your flag. But, never should that trump the American flag.

    These same people hide under the first amendment while many have fallen and families given an American flag. Someone has a problem with me wearing my flag can go suck an egg.

    I want the American flag shoes Palin had to match my outfit. Those were so cute!

    • Thale Taxurfeet

      “many have fallen and families given an American flag”

      The symbol of this Nation means more to a large number of us than the ignorant accusers of racism can fathom.

      A word of advice to those in this country who despise Old Glory. If you pick the wrong person to demand we not fly Old Glory, and you foolishly try to stop us, don’t half-step.

      A minor victory in a war they ultimately lost. To France. To install a pretender to a fake throne. And the sad part of it is, that pretender turned out to be fairly liberal. Mexico’s liberator, Benito Juarez, ultimately liked the guy personally, and only had him executed to send a message to the local elite and the powers-that-be in Europe.

      Of course, the only reason they lost is because America was in the Civil War, and was distracted from enforcing the Monroe Doctrine. As soon as the Civil War was over, they “misplaced” some munitions over the border.

    • QueenB

      In most of Mexico, it has no meaning.

    Cinco de Mayo is an American holiday and it is not widely celebrated in Mexico. It’s a drinking day, for crying out loud. The USA flag being shown in USA is considered racist? I am suddenly so much more for deportation of illegal aliens. As for those legally here who do not like the USA flag, what are you doing here??

    • Michelle ✓classified

      Thanksgiving is an American holiday. 4th of July is an American holiday. Memorial Day is an American holiday. Veterans Day is an American holiday. Cindo de Mayo is not an American holiday. It is nothing more than a day celebrated by people of Mexican descent who happen to live in the United States. but it is absolutely not an American holiday.

      • Ms. Abigail van Beagle

        Don’t forget white people that love a good Margarita!

        • Michelle ✓classified

          People like all kinds of drinks, still doesn’t make Cinco de Mayo an American holiday.

      • QueenB

        I think his point is that it isn’t a Mexican holiday either. It’s not celebrated in Mexico. Other than a few states in northern Mexico, Cinco de Mayo is actually, an American made holiday. “American” meaning celebrated here.

        • Michelle ✓classified

          Oh, I get what he meant. I understood. It’s a day of celebration that is observed in America, but it’s just not an American holiday. A day celebrated in America is not synonymous with “American holiday”.

      • descolada9

        “It originated with Mexican-American communities in the American West as a way to commemorate the cause of freedom and democracy during the first years of the American Civil War,[8][9] and today the date is observed in the United States as a celebration of Mexican heritage and pride.” – Wikipedia. As my Mexican friends tell me, it means very little to them and seems to more of a beer holiday in the States.

        • Michelle ✓classified

          I know what Cinco de Mayo is and why, who celebrates it and why. I was born, raised and currently live in Los Angeles. :-) Thanks for your comment, but it misses the point I made.

          Again, it’s a holiday celebrated in America, but it is not an American holiday.

  • AT

    I’m not an easily offended sissy like the politically correct crowd – but one thing that does piss me off in a major way is seeing people fly flags of other nations on our soil.

    That’s what invaders do after they’ve conquered someone else’s land.

    If you’re so proud of whatever godforsaken third world hellhole you fled from to come to America that you still feel compelled raise their flag – then get the hell out of here and go back there.

  • Jennifer

    If you don’t like the American flag or think its racist, GO BACK TO WHERE YOU CAME FROM, PERIOD.

  • Doubting Thomas

    I can certainly understand people wanting to celebrate a historic event in their ancestry. You can find in it in all parts of this country from Cinco de Mayo to Oktoberfest or St. Paddy’s day ( which doesn’t resemble anything in Ireland). Removing the American flag is objectionable part of the school districts prior decision. Those flying the flag may or may not be racist. Don’t know them. I for one would protest in the same manner – in flying my Country’s flag. For me it was insulting to our country due to the prior decision.

      There seems to be a movement among guilt-ridden white Americans to shame anyone who is proud to be an American and who displays the flag.

    • QueenB

      The really funny thing, it’s not a Mexican holiday. Last year I asked my co-workers in Mexico if they had plans for Cinco de Mayo. They all thought it was just May 5th.

    It seems that what these flag-wavers were protesting was the unfair targeting of students who, several years ago, were outrageous enough to actually wear an image of the flag of their own country on their clothing. I guess these adults wanted to make sure that this discrimination did not happen again. Now, who are the racists?

    • Name

      exactly. And frankly, it’s a backlash. Celebration of Cinco de Mayo in the US is a gimmick advanced by I think mostly Mexican based breweries like Corona or Dos Equis as a way to increase beer sales. Before then, no one cared about mexican independence day. Since then, advocacy groups like La Raza have siezed upon it as a way to push their agenda and use it as a tool to show how bad “we” have been regarding “acceptance”. A cheap trick in my opinion. Same thing happens when atheists want to complain when they cant march in the SAINT PATRICKS day parade. Nothing but opportunism and perversion of an otherwise non-event.

      • Heartland Patriot

        Cinco de Mayo is NOT Mexican Independence Day. That day is much later in the year though I can’t remember it off the top of my head right now. Cinco de Mayo is only a holiday in the Mexican state of Puebla, to commemorate a battle where the Mexican Army beat the French puppet Emperor Maximilian. The part about the Mexican beer companies is accurate, however.

        • therealguyfaux ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

          September 16, 1810 = Mexican Independence Day.

        • Name

          I stand corrected. I always thought it was Mex Independence. Shows how much attention I pay to it. Despite having lived in Oz, Germany, and lots of other places, I dont remember ANZAC Day, Reunification Day, or any of the others. Not my holidays.
          Point remains that it’s an over-blown, made-up “holiday” to justify more beer sales and not an opportunity to whip out the race card.

          Even more alarming is the unemployment rate among black youth, ages 16-19, jumped a full 2.8 points, to 39.3 percent. That’s nearly double the 20.9 percent unemployment rate for whites in the same age demographic.

          Teenage unemployment among all ethnicity’s is awful. There are American teens that would like an entry level job to get some job experience to put on their resume.

    If your nationality is mexican, and you live in the US, go back. If you are mexican descent, living in the US, and your nationality is US, welcome, and pick up a US flag. Wave it and be proud.

  • Kevin Harmon

    There’s a simple solution, if you don’t like a country’s flag being flown in in the country that it belongs to, leave and go where they fly yours.

  • jetch

    so holding up an American flag is racist, but when they wave their Mexican flag or proclaim their Mexican pride, that’s okay??
    mexico is a cesspool of corruption. why are they a third world country when they have the resources and labor pool of a first world country?? yeah, a lot to be proud of!
    while there are many Mexicans who are honest and hard working, there are many more that are lazy, violent and no good.
    the bottom line is that they leave mexico for the united states because mexico is a terrible place with no opportunities unless you’re willing to become a drug lord or kill.

    • LAPhil

      And if they’re in this country it must mean they prefer it to their own, so why don’t THEY wave an American flag once in a while?

      I doubt this same display happens in a lot of other states. California (blue state) has the largest illegal alien population vs other states, and the left in California has nurtured anti American sentiment, and it has born bitter fruit.

      Texas (red state) has a large illegal alien population they don’t exhibit this same hate for the rest of the US population. Or maybe they know the rest of the population inside Texas wouldn’t put up with it.

      • TRINA WELTZ

        I’m in CA and I can tell you that illegals had the same attitude as the illegals in Texas do now…Until they got their numbers up and had thoroughly infiltrated our government and other areas.

    “Shout out to the racist azz adults, so-called Patriots who are posted up at Live Oak HS in Morgan Hill protesting Cinco de Mayo #idiots..

    -Davey D @mrdaveyd”

    And why are they racists, Davey? Seems to me they are just reminding people that this is the USA, and not Mexico, and letting people know you don’t need “permission” to display the US flag in this vicinity, even though it’s a Mexican holiday. Why does race/ethnicity have to be a part of everything?

    How could you possibly conclude from this that these people are racists? Oh, wait. I get it now. They’re all white. You’ve seen a bunch of white people displaying US flags, and you’ve concluded just from this sight alone that they are a bunch of racists -just because they are white. In other words, you’ve stereotyped. You’ve made an assumption, based on skin color and appearance alone.

    I’d be willing to bet my last dollar (and I’m not a rich man) that if you were to show up at that rally with a US flag, that not one of those people would have been anything other than kind and respectful to you. They’d have been likely very happy to have you.

      Those brainless wonders crying “racist” have no idea what Cinco de Mayo is all about. They have no clue about the Battle of Puebla nor who Emperor Maximilian was. And they have no clue that the holiday was made into a big deal by Mexican beer companies to push their products in the USA.

    Most of those people with the foul Tweets are probably illegals, the rest of them just like to call white people “racist” because they can. Just so you know, one of the goals of a rather organized group of illegals is to take over the Southwestern USA, turn it into a country called “Atzlan” and establish the Aztec religion as a state religion. This would include building pyramids and making human sacrifice with the whole ripping out hearts and rolling corpses down the steps. Real, real nice folks…you know, doing the jobs Americans won’t do.

  • BigTBoom

    Theodore Roosevelt, in a 1919 letter, might have had the right opinion on the subject of being an American in America…

    “In the first place we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the man’s becoming in very fact an American, and nothing but an American…There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag, and this excludes the red flag, which symbolizes all wars against liberty and civilization, just as much as it excludes any foreign flag of a nation to which we are hostile…We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language…and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.”

  • Charles Hurst

    It is nonsense is that people comply. This is very simple.When something this irrational is propagated as sanctioned rule people need to refuse it. Example: a school states wearing the American flag on your shirt may offend Latinos in southern California. Half of the school needs to show up with that shirt and that flag. And if it is finally at the point where our flag causes violence then so be it.

    What’s going to be next? Actually what has already been next? Don’t say Merry Christmas. Someone might be offended. Don’t talk about Easter—the Muslim might take offense.

    It is this type of compliant sheeple attitude is the reason the insanity has gone as far as it has. I wrote once of another sheeple country—Germany. The final anti reason that the Jew was propagated as the cause of the German economy’s ills. And people went with it. That’s what happens with compliance of anti reason. And
    that is what our nation lives under now—anti reason.

    As I predict, based on a sage known as History, anti reason is the premise before collapse of a nation. We are well on that path. If we continue we will have two possible scenarios. 1) A second civil war 2) We will no longer be the land of the free. And I’m sorry to say that the only way to confront anti reason is with
    violence. You cannot reason with the Marxist type of group thought. You cannot
    debate a tyrant.

    It is on the horizon. Soon we will have a choice on how to deal with the oncoming tsunami which will attempt to sweep our freedom away.

    We have allowed … uhh … “only 9 million” Illegals to set up shop in this country for a decade or two (reality check: more like 20 or 30 million Illegals). And the vast majority, certainly 50-percent-plus, of those Illegals … are either Mexican or Guatemalan or from some other Central American country. And so here we are: flying the flag of the United States is … racist. How dare anyone fly the flag of this country? How dare anyone sing its National Anthem? “Ohh, oohh, but it’s only on … Cinco de Mayo … that we have to be especially sensitive about how Mexicans might feel … … “. HINT: TAKE A LOOK AROUND L.A. AND ANYWHERE IN SO-CAL. HOW MANY MEXICAN FLAGS CAN YOU COUNT WITHIN, OH, LET’S SAY 30 MINUTES? IN WINDOWS, ON LAWNS, ON PORCHES, IN CAR WINDOWS. THE MEXICANS AREN’T WORRIED ONE. LITTLE. BIT.

    “Contrarian” is a criticism I could see (to the extent it’s a criticism), since “because you said we can’t” seems to be at least part of the animating spirit of the demonstration. I can also see arguing that the administrators are in a position to know whether wearing the flag shirts was intended solely to antagonize, which would be irrelevant in the public square but significant in the school setting, where there is a compelling interest in maintaining a level of order that would be intolerable in society at large. But racist? That’s just lazy.

    The last poster is typical, ‘pride in the Mexican flag, not the American one”…yes, pride in your flag…your own country?….meh, not so much…so little pride, in fact, you escaped your ‘proud heritage’ to come here. Pathetic really.

    • Nahalban

      yeah lol lots to be proud of with the mexican flag their best general was an outlaw (Pancho) they lost two wars to America almost got their asses kicked by the foreign legion. Have to encourage their own people to head north into the United States in order to have a living and drug cartels pretty much run everything south of the border lots and lots to be proud of.

        The closer you get to Mexico City, the lighter skinned people are. They are just as racist as they claim we are. All of their celebrities, politicians and elite are very light-skinned.

  • Melissa Price

    These people are so shallow. They are not protesting Cinco de mayo they are protesting the fact that this is AMERICA and nobody should be told that they can’t wear a t-shirt displaying the flag or not be able to wave the flag. Waving our flag does not make them racists. If you don’t like the flag or this country, then why are you here? Id be happy to provide a one way ticket back to your country.

  • R.C.

    Whats wrong with white people? Well, most of us have spent our entire lives not judging anyone by the color of their skin. We idly sat by thinking the race outrage would just eventually blow over and the rest of the civilized world would join in and realize that its truly the content of character that matters.

  • Ann Jones

    You know what is funny about this is that Cinco De Mayo is hardly celebrated in Mexico. It is only celebrated in certain parts. It is not a celebration of Mexican independence. It is a celebration about a single victory over the French in a certain town. Cinco De Mayo is more of an American holiday than a Mexican holiday. It is a holiday were a bunch of ignorant people who don’t know how it all started or the real meaning of the holiday use the holiday as an excuse to eat lots of food and drink lots of cerveza.

    If love of my Country and waving its flag makes me racist, so be it. Take your third world toilet ethic and stick it. Come again when you can’t stay so long.

      Don’t you know taking a deep breath makes you racist.

      • Rogue Cheddar

        I know, I’d take shallow breaths, but I hyperventilale and pass out, and have been known to say racists things while unconcious. Either way, I can’t win.

  • http://batman-news.com Houmid

    Oddly enough, more Mexican-Americans celebrate Cinco de Mayo than actual Mexicans. Of course the Battle of Pueblo was a classic underdog beats the Best of the Best (the French Army at that time) fight, which appeals to the American psyche.

    Freedom of speech trumps safety and security concerns. Anyone who doesn’t understand that doesn’t understand the Constitution.

  • McHale72

    Excuse me if I have ZERO respect or concern for some other country’s independence day celebration. I especially dislike illegals coming to the U.S. promoting their REAL country.

    And there’s a solution if they don’t like it, GO THE HELL BACK TO MEXICO.

  • jumper297

    Frightening… so now not only is the U.S. flag a “white people” thing but it’s considered a racist symbol?

    • LegalizeShemp

      Yep, the international Marxists are making it illegal to be a patriotic American.

  • Zach Peterson

    And the crumbling of the American Identity continues while so-called patriots sit by and do little.

  • dcp5674

    Send the illegals home. The US flag ALWAYS flies higher than any other. Period. You don’t like it, go home to Mexico, that wonderful land of opportunity , if your a drug kingpin or a corrupt politician or cop.

  • AuAgFinder

    There are several muy ridiculoso things about this incident. First of all, Cinco de Mayo is a very minor holiday in Mexico. Hardly anyone has even heard of it down here. The true Mexican Independence Day is September 16th, which is when the Mexicans kicked the French out of Mexico. The battle in Puebla on Cinco de Mayo was a minor skirmish. So this made up holiday, promoted by chicanos(NOT Mexicans!) causes controversy when an American flag is displayed. American flags can be displayed any day of the year in the USA.

    Update: Tim is perfectly correct below when he corrects me. It was The Spanish that got kicked on the 16th, not the French. The French were the opponent for the Cinco de Mayo skirmish.

    If you want to see a true celebration of Mexican Independence Day, visit Las Vegas on the weekend around Sept. 16th. The city is packed with Mexicans from Mexico AND the non-Chicano Mexicans living in the US. Tens of Thousands of Patriotic Mexicans fill the city with Luis Miguel playing at Caesar’s, Mariachis and Fiesta dancers in all the big hotels. Las Vegas has a WAY bigger celebration for Mexican Independence Day than anywhere in Mexico, and NO ONE would care if an American Flag was displayed! They LOVE the welcome Mexicans get in Las Vegas in the good ol’ USA! Ask a Mexican about Cinco de Mayo and you get only a sneer.

    • Tim

      Uhhh… you`re wrong there cowboy. Diez y Seis is when Mexico declared independence from Spain, not France. I`m assuming you made a mental typo. If not, greetings from San Antonio!!

      • AuAgFinder

        Thanks for the correction, Tim. Facts should be stated correctly.

On the bright side, hopefully all the Fukushima radiation now hitting the Left Coast will cause terminal cancer in every last [email protected] waste of oxygen and thieving illegal alien anywhere near there, not to mention any NorkNukes capable of reaching the US will probably only make it that far ashore.

  • Donald-Now2x/Sarc-w/0calories

    This whole Cinco de Mayo thing is by and large an American made holiday used as an excuse to drink lousy Mexican beer (Corona) and eat pseudo-Mexican dishes. Basically a Hispanic St. Patrick’s day. The people in Mexico don’t even celebrate this so-called holiday. For all those ILLEGAL aliens whining about how “racist” people are for waving American flags in AMERICA, I say GO THE F*CK BACK TO MEXICO and DON’T celebrate it there. And if you still feel the need to get your panties in a wad over people waving AMERICAN FLAGS IN AMERICA, get in line to immigrate here LEGALLY, and when and if you become an actual US citizen, BE PROUD TO BE AMERICAN A-Hole!

    Waving an American flag on American soil is not racist. I want to throw up at the fact this is even being considered an issue. What the real issue is: when the students were made to turn their American flag shirts inside out. WTF?! Cinco is a Mexican holiday. I couldn’t give a fuck less about a celebration of an old Mexican battle. If I was in Mexico.. sure. If you are a Mexican in America, great! Celebrate Cinco, but fuck off trying to force your shit on me. I think I just found my new cinco tradition. Wearing an American flag t-shirt.

  • James

    “fuck your American flag . Racist as fucks . I’ll always have pride with my Mexican flag but not the American one”

    Then take your ass back to Mexico.

    So sick of this crap. We are a nation of immigrants……..THAT ALL ASSIMILATED. There is nothing wrong with pride in your country but you need to have respect for the country in which you are residing as well.

  • pompis1

    This is America and there is nothing racist about waving the American flag. If the Mexicans don’t like it they can all go back to their country. There is no wonder the real American people are tired of so many Mexicans disrespecting our country.

  • 2War Abn Vet

    The truly racist part is that the school assumes the Mexicans are violent thugs that will revolt at the sight of the flag. One episode four years ago should not set a precedence.

    Most
    people don’t know that back in 1912, Hellmann’s mayonnaise was
    manufactured in England. In fact, the Titanic was carrying 12,000 jars
    of the condiment scheduled for delivery in Vera Cruz, Mexico, which was
    to be the next port of call for the great ship after its stop in New
    York.

    This would have been the largest single shipment of mayonnaise ever delivered to Mexico. But as we know, the great ship did not make it to New York. The ship hit an iceberg and sank, and the cargo was forever lost.

    The people of Mexico, who were crazy about mayonnaise, and were eagerly
    awaiting its delivery, were disconsolate at the loss. Their anguish was
    so great, that they declared a National Day of Mourning, which they
    still observe to this day.

    The National Day of Mourning occurs each year on May 5th and is known, of course, as Sinko de Mayo.

  • CarriedbyGrace

    Those Americans holding their flag on American soil on the 5th of May as a reminder that this is America are NOT racists. Displaying the flag of the country of one’s origin does not make one a racist. And btw, we are celebrating Mexico’s Independence Day in America, why? It is not OUR holiday.

    Throwing out the term “racist” has become the default reaction for the pettifogging idiots in this country who associate everything with race. It has no meaning anymore because of the countless cries of wolf by people who probably couldn’t even spell “racist” if they had an open dictionary lying in front of them.

    Is this a special ed school? Wtf is wrong with their parents if it isn’t? Parents who raise low lives like this should go to prison for child abuse. To raise such foul mouthed, disrespectful, racist, hateful brats shows that they failed as parents at epic proportions. Watch what happens when someone burns your Mexican flag, brat. Keep talking your anti-American crap, kiddies…when we get this country back from the liberal/progressive Democrats, you AND your failure as parents are on your ways back to Mexico where you can wrap yourself in your flag and cry while you suck on your thumb remembering how you blew it big time.

    I’ve never seen so many Racist people begging to be put on a Gravy train back to good old Mexico , My Father fought for that American Flag just as I have served to protect it ,My Family Lost friends and relatives who had laid down their lives to protect that Flag and give us all our freedom , And because of this fact alone , I am free to Fly my American Flag anytime and anywhere I please in these continental United States , and I promise that any person who denies me that well deserved right will suffer an immediate and untenable Civil War. There was a once a siege in WWII Belgium during the battle of the Bulge where the Nazis had surrounded a complete Battalion of US infantry and had the Boys pinned down for days under heavy assault , when the Nazi Colonel finally sent a communicade to the US Army Lieutenant demanding his surrender, or else be slaughtered …….the Army lieutenant penned a one word message back to that Nazi Colonel as his reply , and that message was “NUTS !” and The Nazis lost that Battle in the end too ! NUTS!

  • Mark
