As a sign of the times, a way of measuring the results of the ongoing scourge of multiculturalism at any cost, the effects of massive, uncontrolled, illegal immigration and the direction of Obama’s “fundamental change” on America, consider story of American kids sent home from their classes at an American high school in northern California in May of 2010.

Their infraction? They had the temerity to wear t-shirts displaying the image of Old Glory, the Stars and Stripes – the American flag. On May 5 th – “Cinco de Mayo” in Espanol.

Live Oak High School Assistant Principal Miguel Rodriguez ordered the proud American kids to remove or turn inside out the offending T-shirts. The students refused, and several were sent home.

The reason given by the principal? Displaying the American flag image on that particular day was deemed “provocative” and “disruptive.”

Fast forward to last week when a Federal judge in California dismissed a suit filed by the students and their parents last year alleging freedom of speech violations. Thejudge ruled that officials had a legal right to send home students wearing shirts with the American flag on Cinco de Mayo because of a "reasonable fear" the images could spark violence in the 1,300-student American school. Why? Because 20% of the students take English as a second language classes and 18% of the students are “poor.”

The American flag is an insult to poor people? To students who are being taught English in America at taxpayer expense? Or simply an oppressive insult?

In defending the actions of the principal and the federal judge, anti-enforcement, liberal columnist Rueben Naverrette writes on the CNN website that “the previous year, in 2009, a group of Mexican students marked the holiday by walking around campus holding a Mexican flag. A group of white students responded by hanging a makeshift American flag from a tree and chanting "USA." According to the Chronicle, tensions flared and the two groups faced off with profanity and threats. In the USA.

A note here: Naverrette knows very well that “white” is not the opposite of “Mexican” and that one does not exclude the other. “Mexican” describes a nationality. The terms Latino and Hispanic denote ethnicity, not race. Just ask one some of the proud Hispanic-American members on the board of the Dustin Inman Society.

One can be of any race – or nationality - and be Hispanic or Latino. But Naverrette’s and many other members of the liberal media’s intentional and constant usage of the divisive comparison helps to fan the flames of alleged “racism” on the part of Americans who demand that our immigration laws be enforced and that all immigrants – even from Mexico - assimilate into the famous American culture, common language and proud patriotism that has but one flag and loyalty to one nation – the USA.

The dismissal of the California lawsuit is heralded as an important victory on numerous far-left websites. With a straight forward view into the goal and agenda of the open borders loons, a writer on the left-wing Huffington Post blog suggests that “perhaps the students at Live Oak would be right to carry both American and Mexican flags on Cinco de Mayo.”

Author Victor Davis Hanson credibly labeled what is now occupied California as “Mexifornia” in his widely-read 2004 book of that name. Three years later, he wrote “the flood of illegal immigrants into California has made things worse than I foresaw.” I am sure these Live Oak High School students and parents would agree.

Suggestion to parents and students in the Cobb County and Georgia: Get your American flag t-shirts ready for school on May 5 th , 2012.

Let’s see how far down the road to becoming ‘Georgiafornia’ we have traveled.

If the American flag is offensive to some of the students, perhaps they do not WANT to be Americans. The liberals howl for their right to be citizens, but they prefer to abstain, remaining mexican nationals on American soil.

Since California is now part of Mexico, I suggest all California residents pay their income tax in Pesos. It will be a great savings since you can get over 10 Pesos per dollar, thus cutting your actual tax payment 90%!
