Right on the heels of the flag ban at Skyline H.S. in Longmont, Colorado, reading this story (with video) from nearby Westminster really hurt this morning:
The immigration debate and demonstrations caused a middle school in Adams County to change their dress code.Welcome to the beginning of Mexitude right here in the U. S. of A.
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.
The de facto control of social and political policy by illegal aliens.
Think dhimmitude, but substitute Colorado for Kandahar, and La Raza for The Religion of Peace.
Myla Shepherd, the principal, said that tensions over the immigration issue were apparent when more than 20 students came to school wearing camouflage jackets and pants, apparently to show what they call their patriotism and American pride.Sweet Fancy Moses! Patriotism? American pride? You'd think we were in America or something.
She said the dress code diffused the tension immediately.I just bet it did -- used much, I would imagine, like these...
"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."Damn right.
