This is Still America, Right? Students Told to Stop ‘USA!’ Chant, Take Off American Flag Bandanas in California
Is California still a part of the United States of America?
So now its racists to chant “USA” in the United States? America, you best pay attention because you are losing your country. Students at Camarillo High School in California school were told to stop chanting “USA … USA … USA” and to take off their American flag bandanas during a basketball game. Although their punishment has since been rescinded, school administrators said “the incident is far from over.” School officials are going to investigate as to whether the “USA” chant was racially motivated and had racist overtones. Yup, that’s what this country has come to. Let’s go after the students for hate crimes for chanting “USA”. Does anyone really think that if kids whore Mexican flag clothing or chanted “Mexico” that this would have even been an issue. Instead, we have school officials that are worried whether some one was offended. For the Love of God … everyone is offended about something!
Four California high-school students were reportedly suspended for chanting “U.S.A! U.S.A!” and wearing American flag bandanas during a basketball game. While their punishment has since been rescinded, school administrators said “the incident is far from over.”
Oxnard Union School District superintendent Gabe Soumakian told Fox News Radio that “we need to pursue this further” and “work with teachers and students and the community about the concept of cultural proficiency.” Soumakian and Camarillo High School principal Glenn Lipman felt that the students’ actions might have had racist undertones since the schools have large Hispanic student populations.
POWERLINE asks an important question that needs to be answered … “Are Hispanic-Americans offended by chants of USA?” Just curious, have these folks actually taken the “oath of allegiance to the USA, see below.
But wait! What reason is there to suppose that Hispanics take offense at shows of American patriotism? Do they harbor hostility towards the United States? I wouldn’t have thought so, but then I’m not on the ground in Oxnard, California.
I hope Soumakian and his crew get to the bottom of this quickly. I wouldn’t want Congress to provide a path to citizenship for millions of illegal Hispanic immigrants if they, and maybe even some of their legal counterparts, can be presumed offended by standard expressions of American patriotism.
The United States Oath of Allegiance (officially referred to as the “Oath of Allegiance,” 8 C.F.R. Part 337 (2008)) is an oath that must be taken by all immigrants who wish to become United States citizens.
I hereby declare, on oath, that I absolutely and entirely renounce and abjure all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate, state, or sovereignty of whom or which I have heretofore been a subject or citizen; that I will support and defend the Constitution and laws of the United States of America against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I will bear arms on behalf of the United States when required by the law; that I will perform noncombatant service in the Armed Forces of the United States when required by the law; that I will perform work of national importance under civilian direction when required by the law; and that I take this obligation freely without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; so help me God.
Remember when it was racists as well for the chants of USA here as well … Alamo Heights Defeat San Antonio Edison in Basketball …Chanting USA, USA, USA is Now Considered Racist in the America … What Has Happen to Our Country?
