Liberals Call Protestors “Racists” for Holding Up the American Flag
Liberals are always the first ones to bleat about how important tolerance is, yet they’re shockingly intolerant of anything they disagree with. Case in point: Tea Partiers are protesting a school district’s decision to not allow students to wear American flags on Cinco de Mayo for fear of offending Mexican students — and being called racists because of it.
About 30 protesters holding American flags are silently standing outside of Live Oak High School on the anniversary of a controversial incident that gained national attention.
The protesters have indicated they won’t have anything to say until classes start at 8:15 a.m.
Students arrived at school under tight police security, four years after a small group of Live Oak students came to school on Cinco de Mayo wearing American flag T-shirts, saying it was a sign of their patriotism. Latino students felt it was a sign of disrespect. Administrators told the students to wear the T-shirts inside out or go home.
We’ve gotten to the point that we’re calling the American flag racist in order to offend students celebrating another country’s relatively minor holiday. And we have no one to blame but ourselves — after all, this is what happens when a country thrives on perpetual outrage and celebrates victimhood.
