CA: Judge Rules School Right To Ban American Flag Shirts On Cinco De Mayo

Posted by Brian
One more outrage from the People's Socialist Republic Of California, as a federal judge ruled in favor of a school who banned American Flag attire on Cinco de Mayo.  According to the school, which the judge concurred with, wearing American flag apparel could cause violence.  Apparently, the U.S. flag is disrespectful to wear on a Mexican holiday in the United States.

FED JUDGE: CALIF. SCHOOL WAS RIGHT TO FORBID STUDENTS’ AMERICAN FLAG T-SHIRTS ON CINCO DE MAYO

Should public school officials have the right to prevent students from wearing pro-American garb on Cinco de Mayo?
This question has been at the heart of a California court battle between the Morgan Hill Unified School District and students who were told by a principal and assistant principal that they could not wear American flag t-shirts on the Mexican holiday back in 2010.
Following the incident, a lawsuit against the district was launched by the students and their families. This week, the case came to a close, with a federal judge ruling against the students — a blow that is likely to infuriate some free speech advocates.
