Texas Crazy... Patriotism under fire!

Take Me To Post Comment Form

A Texas teenager is suing her Texas school district for violating her United States civil rights in her Texas High School during September 2011's "Freedom Week" for trying to force her to pledge allegiance to the MEXICAN flag and sing the MEXICAN anthem. You go, girl.

"Freedom Week" was supposed to be a week long series of activities commemorating the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks and the signing of the U.S. Constitution in September of 1787. Maybe I am a bit confused here, but what does the Mexican anthem and pledge of allegiance have to do with those events.

OK, according to the article, she was removed and her school did give the student an optional assignment to write an essay on the history of the independence of Mexico. She did that, yet received a failing grade. She claims it is retaliation. I tend to agree.

How dare that Bible thumping, shotgun loving, all-American redneck to be so patriotic as to refuse to pledge allegiance to a foreign country! OH... wait a minute. This young lady is fluent in Spanish, attends Achieve Early College High, and has a Mexican immigrant mother. I guess you don't have to be a gun loving redneck to be patriotic.

A spokesman for the school district stated the class was conducting a 'cultural-awareness assignment.' Ah, yes. I recall those. Who can forget all those Los Angelinos skipping school to run rampant, blocking streets and freeways while waiving the Mexican flag and denouncing the USA. Or all the Hispanics in Arizona protesting, destroying property, and fighting the police when their Governor took steps to secure the border and block illegal immigration. I remember well.

I am proud of this young lady for standing up for her beliefs in the face of such opposition. Shame on the school board, district, and instructors. There is a double standard and it is getting worse every day. We already have had common sense back down when students were asked to pledge allegiance to the US flag. Oh, no! Why is it wrong to ask Americans to pledge allegiance to their flag, yet it's OK to try and force an American to pledge allegiance to a foreign land? Who would have thought it.

Right, because it is perfectly OK for a student to REFUSE to do the work a teacher gave them. Makes sense ...

Hey, why do that biology homework at all? Maybe it's against your beliefs too. If the teacher give you a bad grade for refusing, just SUE the school!!!

Don't like that social studies test?? Forget it! Just sue the school and say you refuse to lear anything un-american.

Foreign language class?? Skip it! We speak english in the US and so should everyone else! Sue the school and get a "A".

What a joke!

P.S. Bull153's unbroken streak of hypocrisy continues as before he has claimed great distain for FRIVOLOUS LAWSUITS such as this, yet seems to suddenly embrace the concept. After his paragraph about Los Angeles and Arizona, seems Bull153 only takes this position due to a prejudice against hispanics. Might matter if the readers of this publication cared at all about intellectual consistency.
