re: #399 Charles

True, but there’s no real tradition of harassing Irish people in that way, either. If a kid showed up on St. Pat’s wearing a flag and acting belligerent about it, people would look at him and go, “Huh?”

The intent in this case was pretty clear, though.

I don’t see anywhere in the article that the kids were “acting belligerent” other than wearing the American flag clothing. To me that makes a difference between what should be protected expression and inciting others.
