Cinco de mayo actually a beer promotion?
A recent eighteen minute interview by Laura Ingraham with the parents of two of the three students who were told they had to turn their shirts, which were emblazoned with the American flag, inside out, or remove them all together to not offend Mexican students.
The interview is pretty interesting. Apparently the assistant Principal told the parents that several “European” students had approached him to say that if he didn’t deal with the students wearing the patriotic shirts there would be “drama”. Oh really–drama? Was this a veiled threat of violence against students who were daring enought to wear American colors on a faux holiday?
Faux holiday, you say? Yes, it is a fake holiday.
Some things you might want to know about Cinco De Mayo:
1. It isn’t the Mexican Independence day. Mexico’s independence day is called “Grito de Dolores” and is celebrated on September 16th. It commemorates the declaration of war with the Spaniards in 1810.
What does Cinco de mayo have to do with that? Absolutely nothing.
2. Cinco De Mayo is not a Mexican Holiday, but rather an American one. Few people celebrate the holiday in Mexico, but it is a time when Americans can get wasted on Mexican beer and stuff themselves with burritos for no other reason than boredom.
3. Cinco De Mayo was promoted by the Island of Malta (no, it is not associated with Mexico) that produces “Corona Extra”. It seems that Corona felt that it was an ingenious marketing scheme to promote Cinco De Mayo, and it has worked out marvelously for them.
So basically, Cinco De Mayo is an American holiday which has very little to do with Mexico. So is it wrong to wear an American flag-based t-shirt on cinco? Of course not. Does everyone have to wear green on St Patricks day? Does everyone have to wear red, white, and blue on the 4th of July?
Their is little tolerance on the Left. They wish to bring down this nation from within. The first step is indoctrinating our citizens into cowering into submission by outlawing Christian/Judaic values, and by promoting multi-culturalism over Americanism. To defy the Liberal cabal is to be excommunicated.
