re: #494 WindUpBird

I think this whole thing is what Charles and SFZ have said: this was a stunt by the parents of these kids, and the principal was trying to keep order and head off what could have been a fight, what could have resulted in injury. And it was 100% the right thing to do. And some people here are making it a “big brave question of free speech oh don’t you love America enough?!?” sort of thing, which I find to be ridiculous.

And now those parents, having used their children as political tools for their statement, have recieved their rewards for the stunt, showing up on Laura (shiver) Ingraham’s show, and on and on it goes. It seems pretty transparent to me. This wasn’t some innocent thing.

I agree, it was a stunt, intended to provoke an incident (if you read what I’ve written you will see that I’ve come to that conclusion).

My point is, it’s folks like you, who do have a problem with AMERICA FUCK YEAH, but not MEXICO FUCK YEAH, that provoke folks like those kids’ parents into wanting to somehow show their American-ness.

And in provoking, you are no better than the idiots wearing the American flags to provoke an incident at that school.
