On May 5, 2010 in California, a handful of students were sent home for wearing t-shirts and bandanas bearing the American Flag on them, because it "offended" the Hispanic students. Since when do Americans HAVE to observe a day that has nothing to do with them? Since when did it become offensive to show pride and respect to our own Nation? When did we start giving other nations higher regard then our own? Why do we bend over backwards for so many while allowing them to walk all over those who love America? To be an American was once a great thing. To be Proud, Strong, Free. Now we seem to be allowed nothing more than weak, ignored and bonded to the will of those who have no love for this Nation.
I AM AN AMERICAN! I WILL FLY MY FLAG AND CELEBRATE AMERICAN NATIONAL HOLIDAYS. I WILL NOT BEND OVER AND SHOW A GREATER RESPECT TO ANOTHER COUNTRY, FOR THEY ARE NOT MINE. AMERICA IS MY HOME. NOT MEXICO, OR IRAN OR ANY OTHER. MY RELIGION IS CHRISTIAN, NOT MUSLIM.
So do not expect me to step aside as you raise your former country's flag. Do not tell me I need to be more tolerant. It is Mexico, Muslim, etc. that should be more tolerant me and those like me. For I have seen none from you. Stop leeching from our country. If you love your country so much, then go back. Let us be AMERICANS!
