This wasn’t the swastika or the German flag in an American school, it was the American flag in an American school. I said above, though, I don’t think it as about which flag was being worn where, and the whole incident was more about the principal trying to maintain order where there was a clear indication somebody wanted to provoke an incident.

And I think it’s unfair to indict all the people of Arizona. Surely there are people in AZ who have no problem with “THEM” as you put it, being here. But they want “THEM” to be here legally.

A case can be made that we need to increase the quotas, make it easier and quicker for people from our southern neighbor to get here legally - but I don’t know why it should be so difficult to understand when citizens want people to get here through legal means.

If you’re going to talk about legal v illegal, it’s quite another subject, but I don’t think these foolish parents who are raising foolish children who obviously do not embrace others of other cultures or even have the audacity to celebrate another person’s culture, I don’t think these parents give two hoots about legal v. illegal. In fact, the Mexican children at this school are legal right? They wouldn’t be in the school otherwise, right? Then what the hell is the problem of these white parents? It’s not about illegal or not illegal. It’s about “I ain’t celebrating your Mexican holiday. Take this flag and stick it.”

The German reference was to make a point on how people can purposefully make others feel quite uncomfortable and unwelcome in their own country.
