AMERICAN FLAG NOW INFLAMMATORY

This is unbelievable. This week, on May 5th (Cinco de Mayo), five LIVE OAK HIGH SCHOOL students in Morgan Hill, California wore t-shirts that had the American flag on them while many other students wore red, white, and green, the colors of the Mexican flag. The assistant principal, Miguel Rodriguez, approached the students while they were on break. Rodriguez instructed them to turn their shirts inside out so that the American flags would not be showing. That's right, so that the AMERICAN flags would not be showing. The students refused stating that would be disrespectful to the flag. So, Rodriguez took them to the principal's office where they were all suspended from school. According to one of the students, the reason given was that their t-shirts were "incendiary". Now, do you think for one minute that anyone wearing the Mexican flag or colors were instructed to do the same? Do you think that any student was sent home for wearing red, white, and green? No, not one. It was just the American flag that Live Oak High School considers to be "incendiary". And on top of that, these boys work American flag t-shirts frequently, not just this one time.

The one huge problem with this action is that there was nothing going on. There was no bullying, no fights, no sense of violence, no nothing. But, after the school decided to make an issue out of it, things have gone out of control. According to a Fox News ARTICLE, about 200 Hispanic students out of the 1,300 student school skipped class yesterday and marched to the school district's headquarters chanting, "We want respect." It seems there may have been some outside suggestions and or encouragement to these students to march. If you will notice in the Fox News post, a 2005 graduate said, "WE (caps mine) did this to support the Latino/Hispanic community." You have to ask why someone from outside of the school community would even be involved and consider themselves a part of it. "We" indeed.

(One side note here: I think it's very interesting that the site where I first saw an account of this incident, gilroydispatch.com, has been taken down completely. The complete link I visited and read about yesterday is http://www.gilroydispatch.com/news/265404-five-morgan-hill-students-sent-home-for-wearing-american-flag-t-shirts).

Apparently there has been enough national outrage the Morgan Hill School District has placed a statement on their website as follows:

"The Morgan Hill Unified School District does not prohibit nor do we
discourage wearing patriotic clothing. The incident on May 5 at Live Oak
High School is extremely unfortunate. While campus safety is our primary
concern and administrators made decisions yesterday in an attempt to
ensure campus safety, students should not, and will not, be disciplined for
wearing patriotic clothing. This situation and our response are under
review.

We know that this is an emotionally charged topic. We would ask you to
encourage your students to be safe and focus on their academics while in
school. If conversations and/or activities are necessary to express their
feelings on this issue, we will find appropriate venues that do not disturb
student learning or jeopardize the safety of our students. Furthermore, we
encourage everyone to demonstrate respect for each other, open
communication, and responsibility.
Thank you for your support and understanding."

Well, it seems that this school has even more problems than students wearing American flag t-shirts. It seems this same school condones a having a club in their school called M.E.Ch.A. The translation of the acronym is Chicano Student Movement of Aztlan. This is a Mexican nationalist group that claims the entire Southwestern United States from Texas to California and as far north as Utah as their land (SOURCE).

Aztlan

On their website, you will find this statement:

"Essentially, we are a Chicana and Chicano student movement directly linked to Aztlán. As Chicanas and Chicanos of Aztlán, we are a nationalist movement of Indigenous Gente that lay claim to the land that is ours by birthright. As a nationalist movement we seek to free our people from the exploitation of an oppressive society that occupies our land. Thus, the principle of nationalism serves to preserve the cultural traditions of La Familia de La Raza and promotes our identity as a Chicana/Chicano Gente."

Keep in mind the school allows this "club" along with the other school clubs. Click HERE to see for yourself.

It would seem before the school refers to the American flag being "incendiary", they should look at just what they are sponsoring. Like Congress, whose members don't read most of the legislation on which they vote, Live Oak High School administration hasn't read MeCha's website. Or, maybe they have.

Since the T-shirts were inflammatory, I would also assume the the American flag which is probably hung on a pole in front of the school is also. Therefore I hope they removed it as well.

It is my personal opinion, but also as a serious student of the Bible, that all these things/ events will multiply and escalate BEFORE the Lord comes back to pluck His real servants and believers up to heaven, and then the real fun will happen to the earth! Sorry, good buddy, news like this doesn't even bother me anymore, because I know that obama and the Dims actually WANT IT TO HAPPEN as they destroy the USA! Only God can set things aright.

hey Dirk- I'm glad you posted on this. I only touched a little yesterday- but thank you for showing the whole story. I'd like to point out a couple of things here. First of all, on the school response- they claim that students should focus on their academics? LOL what a laugh that is. In most schools these days, students are encouraged to speak out on social issues- mostly from the liberal perspective, so telling the people that students should focus on their academics is a pile of hooey.
Second point, you might want to dig and see if it's true, I can't remember where I read, but this M.E.Ch.A. group may have ties to palestinian groups.
Why there would be such a group allowed to meet on school property is beyond me- when they clearly hold a ideology which is antiAmerican.
Next, if one was to follow the logic of these folks who want to re claim "their land", well, correct me if I'm wrong, but then Mexico should give back all of their land. Spain ought to have never invaded. Every country on the planet pretty much have populations of people who are not indiginous to that country. Where the heck does that stop? Sounds vaguely familiar in the so called palestinians wanting their land back from Israel- which is a crock all in itself.
Anyway, sorry Dirk. Just frustrated with this whole thing. I am sick of people living in America who are anti everything American! This is NOT the country I moved to!!! Besides, all this crap about Cinco de Mayo- it's NOT even a Mexican national holiday!! Oh, it is celebrated by a small minority of Mexicans- but it is a localized holiday remembering when Mexico won against the French when France was trying to get money back that Mexico borrowed. France got their butts kicked, and none of their money back.
OK. Sorry- God Bless you Dirk. Thanks for letting me rant. Come by and read mine when you can- I posted about the whole illegal alien thing from a Legal resident perspective :-)

Kick God out of America, then kick prayer out and then kick the American flag out and then finally kick the American people out.

Listen very carefully what I am telling you. For years in the auto industry in Vegas I had dozens of Hispanic porters, many Mexicans among them.

Many were my friends. Most were good people.

I can assure you that a large number of Mexicans, NOT ALL OF THEM, but many believe that America was stolen from them. They believe that Texas and California is theirs. And they want their land back.

Here is the plan, plain and simple.

Go into America, reproduce, four or five kids to a family at the American's expense, our children will become citizens under American law, and eventually we will over populate the Americans because they only have 0,1 or 2 children on average. And then we will over throw their government without a shot fired. All of the United States will be ours, all of it...

There are now cities in California that are 90-98% Hispanic populations. Huron is 98.27% Hispanic.

In Texas, The largest city with a Hispanic majority is San Antonio and the highest percentage for any major U.S. city is El Paso, Texas standing at 76% during the 2000 U.S. census. That was ten years ago. Some experts say the Hispanic population has doubled since then.

...Not all Mexicans feel this way, and there are many who are opposed to this plan. But it is a plan with the Mexican underground. And, it is a plan that has worked thanks to our government.

The Mexican drug cartels are already here. Instead of having Meth factories here like they used to, or smuggling huge amounts of marijuana across the border, they now grow it in the forests of the western United States and have their people protect and distribute it.

This is not a new plan; it's been around a long time.

In a few years the Hispanics will no longer be a minority in America, but a majority and that's a fact.

You and your children will be the minority, and that's a fact.

Friend, we've already lost and here is the proof:
