    This kid was told by the school to take the American flag off his bike because it offended others. What a load of crap! If anyone is offended by the American flag, they can leave. It's ridiculous how many times people have been told to remove the flag because it offends others. Why would anyone even consider cowtowing to those who dislike America? Fuck 'em. I am so tired of schools, landlords or homeowner's associations prohibiting the flying of flags or yellow ribbons because it offends Muslims, Mexicans or other group. It's un-American and I am glad this community stood up for the boy's rights. We need to send a message that if the American customs bother you, then stay the hell out of here. We should not allow people to come here and force us to make changes to suit them.

    You've been outraged over this for a year and a half?

    You need some Xanax.

    More than likely, she just learned about it, but I'm sure you already knew that. Your response is a deflection of the topic at hand.

    More of the story.

    If the kid only flew the flag on his bike around the Cinco de Mayo invented holiday (they don't even celebrate it in Mexico), then he was obviously intending it as a slap toward his Mexican classmates. He is offended by the Mexican flag and decided to offend them back.

    Does he fly it year round? Does he fly it on St Paddy's Day?

    Not that that would excuse the mental stumblefucks who told him to take it off his bike. It doesn't. But let's not deify the kid if he is just being a racialist culture warrior chain yanker.

    First off, your story was from 2010. Secondly, the school didn't order it, they requested it. They had racial issues when some Mexican-Americans brought Mexican flags to school for Cynco d' Mayo.

    I personally thought the schools request was stupid, btw, but you people are idiots to believe things without checking them out.

    Here's more of the story, which FOX published on the same day they put out the OP.

    If the American flag offends anybody in America, then those that are offended should get the fuck out of the country.
