In our world of political correctness, pretending not to want to offend anyone, and assuming that aliens might hate America and be offended by our country’s flag once again strikes at the heart of American patriotism with the tyranny of despotism.  First off I have a message for you robotic pundits, Muslims are not a race it’s a religion, and the USA is not a race it’s a country.

That being said…four male students at Adolfo Camarillo High School in Camarillo, California, just east of Oxnard; love to show their patriotism at school sporting events by wearing American flag bandanas and chanting ‘USA!  USA!’  At a recent basketball game, the four teens got the crowd chanting ‘USA! USA!’ with them Officials stepped in and stopped them and the four boys were subsequently suspended from school.

Why were they suspended…because the principal, Glenn Lipman, believed that the chants ‘might’ have been racially motivated?  Yep, chanting ‘USA!’ was racially motivated because a large part of the student body is Hispanic and they may have been offended by the chant.  Oh God please help me to try to under stand this…

 The suspension was soon lifted, but the incident is not over.  Lipman explained his actions, saying:  “We wanted to make sure their actions weren't racially motivated, and I told the kids I just want to be sensitive to the feelings of everybody.  If we’re doing it for patriotism, that’s fine.  But if we’re doing it for something else that’s racially motivated, I’m not going to allow that.”  Just how could our flag and the name of our country in any way be racists Mr. Lipman?  The only way I see that one could make this twisted connection is to assume all people that come to live in this country should hate it.  If that were true, as in the case of Muslims who have an agenda to change the entire world into Islam, but why would anyone else leave their own country behind and come to America if they hated it and were offended by it?  I think it takes a twisted racists mind to even make that assumption.

Oxnard Union School District Superintendent Gabe Soumakian said:  “…we need to pursue this further” and “work with teachers and students and the community about the concept of cultural proficiency.”

One of the four students responded to the racial charges against them, saying:  “We’ve done it always.  It’s something we do.  It’s the same group of friends.  We’re all very patriotic.”

Over 100 of their fellow students gathered around the school’s flagpole the next morning to show their support for the four suspended teens whose only crime is that they are patriotic and love this country.  Which seems to be offensive to Principal Lipman. 

THE BOTTOM LINE: If Hispanic or Muslim students are really offended by someone chanting ‘USA!  USA!’, then perhaps they should go back to their own country.  This is America, not Mexico, Pakistan or any other country, although California may soon be Hispanifornia or Islamifornia, but for now it is still America.  People in this country should be patriotic Americans no matter what country they come from.  If you don’t love it, leave it.  If you’re offended by our country, leave it.  If you don’t like our way of life our traditions or our flag, leave it and stop trying to turn it into the country you left behind.  If you love your own country that much, go back to it and leave us alone.   This includes Principle Lipman.

I am first born in this country both my parents were born in another country and when they came here they left their old country behind and became Americans.  Anyone that lives in this country should be an American, in the process of becoming an American or just visiting America.  Anyone else should go back to where they came from and stop complaining about the greatest country in the world that everyone wants to come to.  

I have a message for Principal Glenn Lipman… just maybe you are the only one that’s racist and hates America since it seems to be the only thing on your mind.
