Liberal Court Backs School That Forced Students To Remove American Flag Clothing For Fear of Ethnic Violence

This case makes me sick. A liberal court sided with a school that banned patriotic clothing for fear of “ethnic violence” from Latino students.

An American school actually banned the American flag because they believed it would provoke a “violent reaction” on Cinco de Mayo–which, of course, students are free to celebrate.

“School officials anticipated violence or substantial disruption of or material interference with school activities, and their response was tailored to the circumstances,” Judge M. Margaret McKeown: wrote in the opinion: for the three-judge Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals panel. “As a consequence, we conclude that school officials did not violate the students’ rights to freedom of expression, due process, or equal protection.” […]

“School officials have greater constitutional latitude to suppress student speech than to punish it,” McKeown wrote, adding that “officials did not enforce a blanket ban on American flag apparel, but instead allowed two students to return to class when it became clear that their shirts were unlikely to make them targets of violence. The school distinguished among the students based on the perceived threat level, and did not embargo all flag-related clothing.”

The real question is, if Hispanic immigrants really have a “violent reaction” to the American flag, why are we letting them come to America?
