When 60 irate Mexican-American students
walked out of classes in Morgan
Hill, California on May 6 to protest the flying of Old Glory on Cinco de Mayo day, many
thinking Americans scratched their heads and wondered:
in the world is wrong with these kids? Why do they behave so stupidly?
Who is teaching this mindless idiocy?
The fact that
young students would act so irrationally and with such hostility towards
the symbol of freedom and liberty—the American flag— needs to be
addressed, and with urgency!
Clearly, some students are being
brain-washed in their homes by parents who hate America, except for the dinero,
and by the mainstream media which fosters this sort of sedition by always
advocating on behalf of Mexico,
including illegal aliens, and against America.
behind two large Mexican flags, the students claimed they were sending
an urgent message: Mexicans
are proud of their heritage and wearing red, white and blue on Cinco de
Mayo is disrespectful.
Is it even possible to be more
Although parental negligence is largely
responsible for the wrong-minded thinking of muddled students, it would
be a mistake to overlook the damage that done when Mexican President Felipe
Calderon stands before the U.S. Congress and scolds the state of
Arizona for defending its citizens against invasions from Calderon’s
The hypocrisy is even more unfathomable given
Mexico’s own dismal treatment of illegal aliens. Indeed, Amnesty
International recently declared a “Human Rights Crisis” in Mexico based on the
fact that Latinos who wander onto Mexican soil without papers risk being
kidnapped, raped, or murdered.
Kidnapped, raped, or murdered,
and yet Calderon is aghast at an Arizona law which merely authorities
law enforcement to question those suspected or being in America
It is that sort of muddled thinking that
can cause impressionable students to conclude that flying the American flag
on a Mexican holiday is somehow “incendiary.”
Calderon is not alone in providing a rotten example for the young to
Congressional Democrats actually left their seats in
order to afford President
Calderon several standing ovations.
In a repugnant
display of political treason at it most treacherous, liberals cheered
wildly in support of Calderon’s rhetoric against Arizona and its
courageous leaders who are struggling to deal with the financial and
social devastation brought to Arizona and America by third-world
invaders from Calderon’s Mexico.
With pathetic role models like Felipe Calderon and
Congressional Democrats around, it should come as no great surprise that
Mexican-American students need to study the U.S. Constitution, the Bill of Rights, the
rule of law, and accept the United States as their “home” of
Only then will these students earn the respect they
claim to so desperately want.
