Live Oak High School and Firestorm Over the Flag

Morgan Hill is only about 15 miles from my home.  I worked there for a year and a half, for a Morgan Hill CPA firm. I love that little town, with its quaint main street lined with small shops, cafes, a movie theater and a music store.  Morgan Hill is also home to the Thomas Kincaid Company, whose prints of Thomas Kincaid paintings are so popular with Christians.  We have several of them hanging on our walls.

My favorite cigar store is located there, the Morgan Hill Tobacco Company, where I buy most of my cigars.  They serve some great beers there, too.  My favorite is a German wheat beer.  You can sit around the tables and puff cigars and sip beer and banter with other customers, most of whom are conservatives.

Morgan Hill is the home of Live Oak High School, which has been a football power in the past, winning the CCS championship once or twice.  On May 5th of this week, however, some school official ignited a firestorm when he ordered three students to remove their t shirts, which bore American flags.  It was, after all, Cinco de Mayo, a Mexican holiday, and the official believed the Hispanic students would be offended.  Offended by the American flag.  In America.  Those of us who have long feared that political correctness and identity-based politics would lead to a balkanization of America need fear no more:  it is a reality.

The school official asked the boys to remove their t shirts or turn them inside out. The three students, unlike the Live Oak High School administration, have actual functioning gonads:  they refused, and were sent home instead.  Their story was picked up by local media and soon went viral over the internet.  Michelle Malkin gave it legs.

On Thursday, Mexican students took advantage of the situation to shoot themselves in both feet.  According to Bay Area News:
On Thursday, about 200 Mexican-American students walked out of class in protest of the flag clothing incident. Members of the group waved the Mexican flag and said they were marching for respect and unity. They  also demanded the school suspend the boys who wore the U.S. flag-adorned clothing.
Today, Friday, however, the backlash is in full swing and the Live Oak administrators are trying desperately to stop the firestorm that they created.  The school superintendent sent a letter to parents stating that the boys will NOT be suspended, and that patriotic clothing is allowed at Live Oak High.  Thanks a bunch.

Meanwhile, some Live Oak parents are keeping their kids home from school.

What this incident has shown is this:  many people of Mexican descent who live in the United States do not identify with their host country, refuse assimilation and are hostile to it.  I only wish that California would pass a law similar to that of Arizona.  Then the reconquistadors can protest all the way back to Mexico on a one-way bus.
