Patriotic Americans all across the nation are being called on to ‘flaunt the American flag’ on Wednesday, May 12, 2010 by wearing patriotic-themed clothing such as American flag style shirts, blouses, ties or jackets; American flag lapel pins or brooches; and by displaying the American flag at home, on your car or at your desk at work. You can even carry an American flag with you as you make your rounds on Wednesday and really flaunt that flag!
This is being done as a show of support for the American families in Morgan Hill , California whose students attending Live Oak High School were ordered to remove their American flag style shirts so as to not offend Mexican students on Cinco de Mayo last week.
Offended Mexican students walked out of class the next day and staged a protest march demanding “respect” for “our holiday” by demanding Americans not display the American flag on American soil.
One protester, Luis Jimenez, was videotaped by KNTV-TV saying, “Yesterday, it was our holiday, Cinco de Mayo. All of, like, the Americans thought they could wear their flags and just flaunt them in front of us.”
Another Mexican protester was videotaped by KRON-TV ripping an American flag out of the hands of an American that same day.
In response, please send this message: We Americans will flaunt our flag on our soil anytime we please. If some folks don’t like that, we have an old saying for them, ” America , love it or leave it!”
Please e-mail and post this call to action on blogs, Facebook, Twitter (Note to all the race-baiting liberals and weak-kneed David Brooks types, this is not about race, or even about Mexico . This is about Americans standing up for America on American soil. If you can’t handle displays of patriotism, the same message above applies to you too.)

The battle over the American flag has reached a middle school art class in California’s Santa Rita School District where a student was told not to draw Old Glory because it was “offensive,” while another student was praised for drawing a picture of President Obama.

Tracy Hathaway, of Salinas, CA, told FOX News Radio her 13-year-old daughter was ordered to stop drawing the American flag and start another project at Gavilan View Middle School.

“She had drawn the flag and was sketching the letters, ‘God bless America,’ when the teacher confronted her,” Hathaway told FOX. “She said, ‘You can’t draw that – that’s offensive.’”

Even more striking, another student in the same art class drew a picture of President Obama and was praised by the teacher.
