Liberals are always the first ones to bleat about how important tolerance is, yet they’re shockingly intolerant of anything they disagree with. Case in point: Tea Partiers are protesting a school district’s decision to not allow students to wear American flags on Cinco de Mayo for fear of offending Mexican students — and being called racists because of it
Liberals Call Protestors “Racists” for Holding Up the American Flag

Wonder how many American flags are bandied about when it is Columbus day? St. Patty's day?
Wait, those predominantly white holidays and we know that answer. That's my bad.
I wonder, would it be okay to bandy about the Mexican Flag on Indpenedence Day? Constitution Day?
1. All units must have two (2) flags. Irish & American flags or no flags at all. NO EXCEPTIONS!! An American flag on the right and an Irish flag on the left.

Your source (right wing news) should be called right WHINE news.
People get called racist. It happens. Sometimes it's true, sometimes it not. So what? Can you take it?
The purpose of the demonstration (wearing flag shirts on Cinco De Mayo) probably was a bit racist, or at least just nasty and confrontational. If they're going to go out of their way to make the statement, "This is the USA and my country is better than yours" on the ONE DAY a year that Mexico is celebrated here... they probably are racist.
If they act like that, SOMEONE, SOMEWHERE is probably going to call them out. I say they should quit whining and take their medicine.
