California Students Punished for Patriotism

Yeah, just don't ever accuse the public school systems of progressive indoctrination.

Five students at a California high school were forced to leave school and then face disciplinary action yesterday for the crime of wearing clothing printed with American flag designs.
"(The Principal) said we could wear it on any other day, but (May 5) is sensitive to Mexican Americans because it's supposed to be their holiday so we were not allowed to wear it today," Daniel Galli said.

So, they wouldn't have gotten in trouble for wearing the shirts on St. Patrick's Day? I guess that means people of Irish descent are considered real Americans, but those of Mexican descent aren't, at least, not by public school administrators.
