Who Knew it Was Disrespectful to Wear American Flag Clothing on Any Day in the USA … Four Students Kicked Off Campus for Wearing USA Flag Clothing on Cinco de Mayo


Four students in a San Francisco area school, need we say any more,  were sent home from Live Oak High School in Morgan Hill yesterday for wearing American flag shirts on Cinco de Mayo. Oh the horror. What, you mean they were not expelled for this horrendous behavior? Maybe even flogged or beaten with a cane?



Meet the 4 hardened criminals guilty of wearing American Patriotic clothes in America


I hate to break it to any one of Mexican descent who live in America … but you live in the United States of America. It is not disrespectful to actually where the flag of the country where the high school is actually located. I also hate to break it to those celebrating Cinco de Mayo … but it is not MEXICAN INDEPENDENCE DAY!!! September 16 That takes place on , just a history lesson for those attending Live Oaks High School.

So the school arbitrarily made a rule that these students could not wear clothing with American flags on it on any other day, other than Cinco de Mayo. Really? I wonder where that is written in the school bylaws.

So let’s get this straight, individuals who live and are citizens of the United States of America had their Constitutional Rights taken away from them by misguided school administration idiots who thought wearing cloths with a US flag on them were “incendiary”? ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!!

“They said we could wear it on any other day,” Daniel Galli said, “but today is sensitive to Mexican-Americans because it’s supposed to be their holiday so we were not allowed to wear it today.”

The boys said the administrators called their T-shirts “incendiary” that would lead to fights on campus.

“They said if we tried to go back to class with our shirts not taken off, they said it was defiance and we would get suspended,” Dominic Maciel, Galli’s friend, said.

The boys really had no choice, and went home to avoid suspension. They say they’re angry they were not allowed to express their American pride. Their parents are just as upset, calling what happened to their children, “total nonsense.”

Get this, the Live Oaks High School are called the Acorns, how fitting as they are NUTS!!!

Who knew we would get to use this ACORN video again, it’s still fitting

Don’t get me wrong, I am all for people celebrating their culture, even if they are doing so in a foreign country. Mexican-Americans are perfectly in their right to wear what ever they want on Cinco de Mayo or any other day of the year for that fact. What you do not have the right to do is tell other what they can or cannot wear. UNLIKE MEXICO … ALL LEGAL CITIZENS HAVE RIGHTS IN THE UNITED STATES. Apologize for wearing patriotic clothes? You are lucky they do not sue you.  That planet are you people from? BTW, Mexico is not a planet, it is a country.

But to many Mexican-American students at Live Oak, this was a big deal. They say they were offended by the five boys and others for wearing American colors on a Mexican holiday.

“I think they should apologize cause it is a Mexican Heritage Day,” Annicia Nunez, a Live Oak High student, said. “We don’t deserve to be get disrespected like that. We wouldn’t do that on Fourth of July.”

As for an apology, the boys and their families say, ‘fat chance.’

Honestly, do you every wonder why there is a backlash against this type of nonsense? Every wonder why a majority of Americans are in favor of the new anti-illegal immigration law in Arizona? By a 50% to 25%, Americans have an unfavorably opinion of immigration rights protesters.

Be very, very careful folks. Americans have a real issue when you tell them that they cannot embrace their flag in their own country. If those of Mexican decent only want to waive their Mexican flag while in the USA, be careful of what you ask for.

So let’s understand this ridiculous mindset. Is it “incendiary” if American flag clothing is worn on St. Patty’s Day? How about Columbus Day? Better yet, if I was going to school in Mexico, Germany, France or where ever and it was the 4th of July and I wore US flag on my clothes, would I have the right to tell people of those countries that they could not wear any clothing that depicted their national flag on that day. It’s not a trick question, the answer would be no.

I word of wisdom to the Mexican/Mexican-Americans that whined and complained that they were being dissed by four boys wearing US flag clothes on Cinco de Mayo … GROW UP! If you do not want to be discriminated against while in America … maybe you should look in the mirror and not do the same. Like it or not, Old Glory is the flag of the United States of America. Many brave individuals, including people of Mexican descent have fought and died and continue to die for it.

      One would think that school educators could maybe teach students at least two things in life, tolerance and the US Constitution … more importantly, Freedom of S peach.

      Who the hell are these people to deny kids their 1st Amendment rights when it is okay whether we agree with it or not to burn the flag, for a KKK rally to take place, neo-Nazi propaganda talk and pornography.

      But some how these a$$ clowns, and that is all they are some how think that it is incendiary for kinds to wear US flag clothing on Cinco de Mayo and then expect an apology.

      This school district can thank their lucky stars that I am not a parent there.

      What is unreal is that I have numerous friends and acquaintances that are Hispanic or of Mexican origin and none, none of them act like this.


    2. Its Me on May 6th, 2010 8:38 pm

      Wake up America! The vice principal is Hispanic. They have taken over!!! They well tell us when and what we can wear. What next?

    3. Hudge on May 6th, 2010 10:18 pm

      It is in fact, according to the US Flag code, disrespectful to wear apparel that embodies the flag. Any day of the year. http://www.usflag.org/uscode36.html#176

    4. LynneinMd. on May 6th, 2010 10:23 pm

      How utterly stupid. This is my country and I can wear the American flag anytime I want and so can those boys. Shame on that school for such an idiotic move. God bless America.

    5. brian on May 6th, 2010 10:51 pm

      i’m so sick of all these mexicans and illegals liveing off the usa and bitching and crying about how their being discriminated against, if you want to cellibrate cinco de mayo while your liveing here in the usa go ahead but remember your not in mexico you idiots so don’t expect any american to pass up his or her patriotism.. if your so proud of mexico why don’t you go back, get off the free health care,food stamps,education..
      it really pisses me off that our schools here in texas makes it mandatory to take spanish classes (bs) you go to jack n the box, mcdonalds, kfc and it’s all mexican who barely speak english they weren’t born here are they’d know how to speak english. and to thoses chicken shit ones that do know how to speak it but decide they don’t want you to understand what their saying to hell with you too , you don’t have enough balls

    6. A Texas Grandfather on May 6th, 2010 11:09 pm

      As long as the american public bends over backwards to accommodate the hispanic culture,we will see events like this.
      These people will try everything to try and take back the southwestern united states that many of them claim was stolen by the U.S government.
      This vice principal needs to loose his job and the principal along with him for not standing up for the boys’ right to to free speech.
      It is time to stop all such celebrations by the Mexicans in the United States. They need to discover that this isn’t Mexico.

    7. Greg the Mongoose on May 6th, 2010 11:45 pm

      First God now the Flag. Good Grief! If a Mexican Flag was worn would they be thrown out? Does the school have a dress code? I guess they are gang colors. Go USA, USA, USA…

    8. rightknight on May 6th, 2010 11:59 pm

      Are the school administrators American or Mexican? It’s nice
      to recall the land of your birth, but, as Americans (assimilated)
      it’s good to respect the reasons you are citizen (if so) of this
      Country rather than back in the country of your origin.

    9. AZHAM on May 6th, 2010 11:59 pm

      like this
      SM: In the United States of America, one does not have the right to discriminate against Blacks, Hispanics, people of any color, race or religion or if they are White.

      What this Vice Principle did was highly discriminatory. Where is Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson?

    10. dawg1948 on May 7th, 2010 12:13 am

      Sounds like grounds for a BIG FAT LAW SUIT to me. I hope they sue and I hope they win.

    11. Buster on May 7th, 2010 12:42 am

      They are acting just like our POS president obamanos !!!

    12. Scott on May 7th, 2010 5:40 am

      This holiday is not a recognized holiday in the United States of America. Most Americans celebrate Cinco de Mayo just a reason to go out and drink; mainly people ages 18-30; and they don’t even know what they are celebrating.

      If those were my kids; a lawsuit would be forthcoming. This is a public school right? Funded by our government which is supposed to uphold our Constitutional rights?

      I’m outraged beyond belief! This is a joke.

    13. super dave on May 7th, 2010 8:04 am

      these kids should sue the school, the faculty, and the obama government.
      this was in the Victoria Advocate news paper in
      Victoria, Tx.
      hispanic leaders, in opposition to the pending immigration bill, called for boycotts on all white owned businesses in Victoria. the hispanics declared it a success.since sales were down by 19%.
      white owned businesses also declared it a
      success. stating that shoplifting went down by
      77%. money orders sent out of the country to
      mexico was down by 97%. daily cost of cleanup
      of the city behind the hispanics was down by
      84%. shoppers reported english being spoken for
      the first time in recent memory and purchases were
      made without the use of government debit cards or food stamps. so yes, a complete success for the

    14. super dave on May 7th, 2010 9:07 am

      Every legal citizen of this country should hang
      the American Flag this weekend to protest these
      illegal vermin. i love it when they come into
      our business and act like they can’t speak english.
      i just let them sit while i help others who are actually trying to work and get supplise instead of being utterly stupid.
      about 15 minutes of this and they start speaking perfect english. amazing what .

      #3 HUH?

      Did you read the link you posted? It is not disrespectful to wear apparel with an American Flag displayed on it. It is disrespectful to wear clothing or anything else for that matter made from an American Flag.

      d) The flag should never be used as wearing apparel, bedding, or drapery. It should never be festooned, drawn back, nor up, in folds, but always allowed to fall free. Bunting of blue, white, and red, always arranged with the blue above, the white in the middle, and the red below, should be used for covering a speaker’s desk, draping the front of the platform, and for decoration in general.

    16. Scott on May 7th, 2010 9:31 am

      Michelle – #3 is just another example of the really uneducated and stupid liberal mindset.

      They will spin anything.

    17. Scared Monkeys on May 7th, 2010 10:20 am

      #3, just another attempt by a liberal who has no clue.

      They were not wearing a flag, they were wearing clothing with a flag on it.

      Nice try but typical liberal without a clue.

      Thank you. You articulated perfectly the sentiments of my hubby of almost 45 years who is a proud Canadian citizen … a proud Canadian citizen who does not expect an unofficial national day of acknowledgement honoring his Japanese heritage … culture.


    19. Elmer on May 7th, 2010 10:57 am

      You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to be a school administrator. You just have to have your certificate and two consecutive losing seasons…

    20. super dave on May 7th, 2010 11:14 am

      i bet if obama told his peasants that sheep $hit
      was wild honey, they would gobble it up.

    21. Teresa on May 7th, 2010 3:09 pm

      These kids are violating the U.S. Code when it comes to the flag, either flagrantly or implied. The kid with the “Old Navy” shirt is definitiely violating U.S. Code Sec. 176(i):

      (i) The flag should never be used for advertising purposes in any manner whatsoever. It should not be embroidered on such articles as cushions or handkerchiefs and the like, printed or otherwise impressed on paper napkins or boxes or anything that is designed for temporary use and discard. Advertising signs should not be fastened to a staff or halyard from which the flag is flown.

      If you want to be patriotic, learn the Flag Code and don’t violate it which many well-meaning, but uninformed persons, do.

    24. Scott on May 11th, 2010 6:38 am

      #23…you’re a tool! No where in the section you quoted did it say anything about clothing. Get a grip you liberal twit! Unreal. Notice the word EMBROIDERED. This section means not taking the flag, cutting it up and using it.

      I guess Old Navy violated the flag code? LOL. What an idiot! Wow!

      I guess all those Fourth of July napkins and the such are violating the flag code?

      I guess all the bandanas with the American flag are violating the flag code?

      Another mindless liberal!
