This is the 9th Circuit, so don’t get too attached to the ruling, as SCOTUS may overturn it.

As for me, I have to say I stand with the US-flag students. I understand the importance of preventing violence, but hiding the US flag on US soil in favor of the Mexican flag is intolerable for me. I know others will call be me blind or bloody-minded, but for me the honor of the flag requires its defense and what force is needed for its defense should be deployed.

From what I can find, the US flag wearing students were wearing the flag specifically to provoke fights - to demean and bully the hispanic members in the proud tradition of bigots and “anti-immigrants” everywhere in this nation.

The flag is not the nation, and when they wear it to soil and pervert the principles for which it stands I damn well agree they should not be allowed to display it.

re: #1 Dark_Falcon

1) There is nothing inherently bad or wrong with feeling proud of your country, especially while on your country.

2) The Flag of any Nation should not be soiled with disrespect to others, much less with provoking violence towards others.

3) This is a school. The lesson to not Soil Your National Flag With Evil should be driven hard into the skulls of the students.

4) Had this situation had occurred outside school property, I see your point and I’d support you. As the situation happened in school property, the rules changes.

Flags don’t have honor.

And if they did, wearing them to provoke fights is the opposite of honorable.

Maybe the conduct of fighting should be addressed instead of constitutionally protected political speech. You may not like why the students wear the shirt with a US flag…but they have a right to wear it.
