A panel of the 9th Circuit Court, in all its liberal wisdom, has declared that a Northern California School acted reasonably in 2010 when it asked students to remove American flag T-shirts on Cinco de Mayo for fear of inciting violence from students of Mexican heritage. Really? I would think that those students with Mexican heritage would be pleased to see the U.S. flag displayed in recognition of all the U.S. has provided them. Last time I looked, California was still a part of the United States and I thought it was always appropriate in America to display the U.S. Flag.
Twelve days after Cinco de Mayo is syttende mai (May 17), which is the Norwegian celebration of their Constitution (much like our 4th of July). So while I may be enjoying lefse and smrbrd, and displaying the Norwegian flag to celebrate my heritage, feel free to wear your t-shirts with the American Flag -- I will not be offended, because Jeg elsker dette landet (I love this country)!
