Quote Of The Week

"It's disrespectful to do it on Cinco de Mayo," said Jessica Cortez, a Live Oak sophomore. "They can be a patriot on some other day. Not that specific day."

I realize this is a sophomore in high school, probably 15 or 16 years old, so she I do not want to attack her. The reality is though that this girl was raised to be this way.

We have been hearing nonsense like this more and more lately from Hispanics. Maybe they simply need to leave if they are not Americans.

That's all I have to say, I'm getting sick of this shit.

I'm tired of it too, but so are some patriotic Americans of Mexican descent.

"They can be a patriot on some other day. Not that specific day."

Can you imagine how any of our Founders would respond to that unpatriotic comment?

Brooke said...

EVERY DAY is the proper day to be patriotic.

That she has been raised/indoctrinated to think the way she does is beyond shameful.

Even worse is the ignorance; Mexicans do not 'celebrate' 5/5. The day is a 'hallmark holiday', hyped up to sell tequila, IMO.

If good old-fashioned Civics was taught in a meaningful way, this would not be an issue. Unfortunately, the Civics water has been muddied with multi-cultural B.S. I don't know if that bell can be unrung, but I pray it will be someday.

Chuck said...

Shoprat, I agree whole-heartedly. I think the fact that these protests aren't bigger than what they are is telling. I think most Hispanics of the legal variety just want to be left alone and do their job

AOW, they're rolling in their graves right now

Brooke, indoctrination is the right word - from home to school

PCC, I would like to think we can right the ship but who knows?

I'm getting sick of this too, Chuck. Either be American, or get the @#$& out.

Chuck said...

Karen, and don't let the door hit you in the @$$

Imagine attending a celebration in Mexico City; suddenly, you take out an American Flag and begin running around in a large circle so that everyone can see you, and while you're doing this, you're singing "Yankee Doodle."

Now then, if such a thing would be offensive to the people of Mexico, what makes Hispanic citizens think that such behavior is acceptable to us, here in America? So I join the chorus proclaiming that I'm tired of this crap ... but my friends, this is what happens when you countenance 'hyphenated' Americans.

Semper Fi

MK said...

Same here Chuck, anyone who doesn't like America and loves mexico, should eff off back there.

LASunsett said...

Opportunism. There are those who lay in wait for some opportunity to whine and complain about not getting their way on something.

They want people to have the right to come to America.... and squat.

Chuck said...

Mustang, and then get pissed if the people of Mexico were critical of you doing it

MK, well put

LA, problem is they're seeing Americans sit around and do nothing and get payed for it. We have bad role models

Tom said...

It's obvious that what is clearly needed here is sensitivity training and tolerance of other's views.

The Principle should have had all of the Mexican/(American?) kids sent to the Gym and commenced a little training. What a "teachable moment"!

Chuck said...

Tom, but it would be racist to expect a minority to be tolerant.
