Banning Patriotic Clothing

Moving well past the ban on flags, a middle school has banned any clothing deemed "patriotic" including camouflage (video):
(CBS4) WESTMINSTER, Colo. The immigration debate and demonstrations caused a middle school in Adams County to change their dress code.

Students at Shaw Heights Middle School are no longer allowed to wear anything that's patriotic, including camouflage pants, because they have become a political symbol for a version of patriotism.

"It upsets me that we cannot support our troops, the military," said Kirsten Golgart, an eighth grader who was told she'd be suspended if she didn't change her clothes. "We can't support our country. If we're American, I think we should be proud to be an American."

Amazing how many public school officials, and teachers, are traitors at heart these days. Ironic too, considering they are paid employees of various branches of American government.

Even more ironic, given that one of the theories behind the establishment of the public school system in the late 19th and early 20th centuries (ours was inspired by that of Prussia) was that it would indoctrinate greater loyalty in citizens.

Oh, and also...

VIVA EL PRESIDENTE!!!!

There, There Kirsten.
Let us know when you're old enough to go to war. We'll get you all the camouflage you need to support our troops.

In the meantime, GET TO CLASS!!!

I say that all illegal ailens need to move their butts and their kids butts back to their country of orgin if they are that prideful! Americans are considered prideful and rude when we go to other countries for making normal tourist mistakes but GODS forbide we tell someone who is in OUR country illegally to be respectful of OUR flag in OUR public schools.

When I told my husband who is a US veteran about this he went ballistic. Then I told him about the clothes issue. He said and I quote: "Since when is this Mexico? If they want to be in this country fine do it legally. Do NOT come to the country I fought for and tell US kids to take down THEIR flag in THEIR country so some kid whose family is from Mexico can feel pride about Mexico. If he and his parents feel such pride for their country then why the hell aren't they living there?"

I am a member of our US military, a proud soldier to serve with the best, for the best. What is so wrong with cheering us on? You go to a football game, you wear your team colors, and yes fights happen. Is it right? NO. but it happens. Personally, I fight for Americans and their freedoms. FREEDOMS to wear what you want, support whatever team you want. And if you want to support my team, I will back you up 100%. It hurts us soldiers who have seen the worse that people aren't allowed to support us. Not supporting us is not supporting your country. If you don't want to support the USA get out! I don't want to fight for you! For all of you back home!! America is strong, we are strong becoase of the support we get. Thank you. All we hear about are the negative things like this. For those of you who do support us. If you ever see us, please let us know that there are people out there worth defending!! Thank you. And Kirsten, if you ever do go to war, let me know, I'll go back there with you!!
