Students Proudly Fly Mexican Flag At Texas High School

Linkedin Share

Oh, high school in 2019.

A time to work hard to get into a good college; to join random groups and make new friends.

And to fly the Mexican flag with pride.

Check it out, per My High Plains:

Controversy sparked in Perryton after the high school’s pep rally last week when a few students flew Mexican flags, which caused some in the community to speculate on the motive.

Dr. Tim Little, the superintendent of Perryton ISD, explained the students were simply celebrating their heritage and expressing themselves.

The day before the rally was Dress Internationally Day. Students were encouraged to dress in a fashion that reflected and celebrated both cultural diversity and individual heritage. The weeks before, the school celebrated Hispanic Heritage Month, which began September 15.

Nothing says proud to be an American like heading to an ICE detention facility and messing with Old Glory.

Not only did this Colorado protesters bring down the flag and muddy it up, but they raised the Mexican flag right next to it.

No joke.

WATCH:

Protestors on @ICEgov property just pulled down the American flag and replaced it with the Mexican flag. The group by the doors is growing. Though most protestors are still on the street.

It gets worse, if you can believe it…

Now flying outside @ICEgov detention center in Aurora – an upside down and dirty American flag, Mexican flag and one with foul language. Protestors still here.

Another video:

Just in – armed guards are now outside the doors of the @ICEgov detention center in Aurora. They’re taking down the Mexican and other flags and replacing them with the American and state flags.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) weighed in:

I dare @AOC or any Presidential candidate to support this anti-American act.

In fact they must all condemn it.

We need to know just how patriotic they are.

Which country’s flag do they support?

Some people just don’t get America; what she’s about; what she stands for.

It’s not really a hard concept to grasp, yet far too many people are concerned about feelings and redefining things to fit their own needs rather than what truly makes sense.

Enter embattled rookie lawmaker Ilhan Omar (MN), who wants ICE defunded because it’s “un-American” to detain illegals, apparently…

WATCH:

ICE is requesting 500 beds from Sherburne County to detain immigrants. It’s un-American to criminalize immigrants for wanting to come to this country for a better life. This is why ICE needs to be defunded.
