Incendiary Patriotism

May 6, 2010

So now it’s “incendiary” to wear a shirt with an American flag on it on the 5th of May, aka Cinco de Mayo. Have people completely lost their minds? What a crock of shit. It is fine to celebrate Cinco de Mayo if you choose, but getting offended just because someone wears a shirt with the flag of the country you live in on it is just stupid.

Kids in California were told to go home or face suspension over this. I am amazed at how far down the hole of political correctness we have fallen.  Hell, Roger Ebert has even weighed in on the issue. He tweeted:

Kids who wear American Flag t-shirts on 5 May should have to share a lunchroom table with those who wear a hammer and sickle on 4 July.

Really, Roger? I think you have lost it completely.
