Let's add the U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals to our list of America's Enemies for deciding on September 17, Constitution Day, that 4 California students could not wear shirts with the American flag printed on them during Cinco de Mayo.
One of the court's responses claimed, "Our role is not to second guess the decision to have a Cinco de Mayo celebration, but to put in the precautions to avoid violence."
Really? So I guess this court would allow blacks to live under a segregated Jim Crow south during the Civil Rights Era for fear that any protest would lead to violence.
Maybe we should have put this decision under our Warning Signs page, because it is certainly a sign of the bad times heading our way. Immigrants once assimilated into American society, but we are no longer a melting pot. The United States is now this gaudy mosaic of competing hostilities, and one day the contemptuous nature of multiculturalism will indeed destroy us.
Some say Los Estados Unidos. I say E PLURIBUS UNUM.
