"Administrators at a California high school sent five students home on Wednesday after they refused to remove their American flag T-shirts and bandannas -- garments the school officials deemed "incendiary" on Cinco de Mayo."

What?! Incendiary???? I thought we were ALL Americans. See, this is what happens when political correctness is allowed to run amok. Celebrate Cinco de Mayo (a holiday in Mexico's history) here in the United States if you want to but don't forget you're still on American turf and the flag of this country is red, white and blue! How dare you tell an American citizen he or she can't wear or display Old Glory!

"Galli told NBC Bay Area, "They said we could wear it on any other day, but today is sensitive to Mexican-Americans because it's supposed to be their holiday so we were not allowed to wear it."

Sensitive? Are these Mexican-American students that fragile that they'd be offended by our national flag? Time for these weenie children to cowboy up and be given a lesson in American history with a strong emphasis on our Bill of Rights!

"Freshman Laura Ponce, who had a Mexican flag painted on her face and chest, told the Morgan Hill Times that Cinco de Mayo is the "only day" Mexican-American students can show their national pride."

National pride? Only day? Does this child know what country she is living in? It's America honey and the national flag is red, white and blue! The American flag does NOT take a back seat to ANY flag in this country, not even for a day! It's not difficult to understand why homeschooling is on the rise when you read about this sort of indoctrinating going on in our public school system.

There needs to be some serious house cleaning among the administrative staff at this high school. Can you spell D-o-r-k A-w-a-r-d? Someone needs to be fired for the doofus decision to ban our flag and for sending those 5 students home. If you were born here in America or are here legally then don't ever forget what flag flies high above all others. If you have a problem with that then move to Mexico where many of us quite frankly don't care what or how you celebrate down under.
