HIGH SCHOOL BUILDS FENCE to Block Pro-American Flag Protest on Cinco de Mayo (Video)

Evidently, it’s OK to build a fence to keep patriotic Americans out.
…But it’s not OK to build a fence to keep foreigners out.

In May 2010, four students at Live Oak High School, in the San Francisco area were sent home for wearing American flag shirts on Cinco de Mayo.
The administration said the T-shirts were “incendiary.”

The students went on FOX News to talk about the controversy.

In February, a federal court said the school officials made the right decision for disciplining the patriotic students.

Now this…
The Morgan Hill high school this week built a fence to block patriotic protesters from disrupting classes on Cinco de Mayo.

CBS Local reported, via Washington Free Beacon:

A Morgan Hill high school has constructed a fence to block protesters from disrupting classes on Cinco de Mayo, after plans were announced by a Tea Party group to protest the school’s 2010 decision to send students home for wearing the American flag on the Spanish holiday.

Calls for demonstrations and counter-demonstrations, and even suggestions that a group of motorcyclists will arrive prompted authorities to put the fence around the front of Live Oak High.

“Usually when you put up a fence, it’s a barrier. And, we interpret it as a barrier to keep out the first amendment,” President of the Gilroy-Morgan Hill Patriots, Georgine Scott-Codiga said.

“I don’t believe there’s any need in America to suppress a national symbol of patriotism and freedom,” she said.

UPDATE: The high school built a fence so that students could not see the US flag protesters.
