UK Today News: Morgan Hill Tea Partiers Rally In Support Of Live Oak High School Students
The Live Oak High School students who were threatened with suspension for wearing American flag tees on Cinco de Mayo, received a three-hour standing ovation from almost 100 American flag-waving Tea Partiers yesterday on Monterey Road.
According to Morgan Hill Times, “Against the backdrop of Americana hymns and homemade signs were the honking and blaring of car horns largely in support of the display of red, white and blue. A few cars drove past with Mexican flags waving in opposition and met with “Go back to Mexico!” from a few standing alongside the street.”
A local Tea Party organizer told reporters: “We are not ashamed to wear this flag on any day. And people blessed to live in this country should not be ashamed to display the American flag or to see the American flag.”
In Live Oak High School, California, four high school students were threatened by the vice-principal that they would be suspended for coming to class with the American Flag adorned on their T-shirts on Cinco de Mayo. This act by the Principal create a controversy across the USA and stirred up a debate if this was indeed the right action to be taken against boys who were allegedly only showing their patriotism towards their country.
Morgan Hill is a city located in the southern part of Santa Clara County, California, United States.
