The Los Angeles County Unified School district has decided that Arizona’s new immigration law is un-American and has ruled that this point of view is what students in their schools should be taught. They join the majority of the left in this country who continue to use the term “un-American” to describe a law passed in Arizona that replicates the Federal immigration laws, sans the authority to racially profile, which the Feds have in their law.
So who are these patriotic Americans from the LA County Unified School District that have taken it upon themselves to defend the American way? Fox News has a profile on one of these groups.
With Revolutionaries ‘Looking On,’ Teachers Take Kids on a Protest Trip to Arizona
Standing in front of a wall-to-wall mural featuring a who’s who of revolutionaries, including Ho Chi Minh, Fidel Castro and Che Guevara, and boldly displaying the motto Patria o Muerte, Venceremos!!! (Fatherland or Death, We Shall Overcome!!!), a group of teachers, students, parents and community activists in the Los Angeles Unified School District gathered last month for an unusual field trip — to Arizona, to protest that state’s controversial immigration law.
A video posted on YouTube shows LA social studies teacher Jose Lara interviewing teachers and students on May 28 at the headquarters of an organization calling for a Mexican revolution on U.S. soil. Soon after he shot the video, many in the group left for an overnight “freedom ride” to Phoenix to protest what Lara tells the camera is a “racist and outrageous” law.
Okay, so let me get this straight:
- Arizona immigration law that mimics the Federal law: Un-American
- Ho Chi Minh, Fidel Castro, Che Guevara, calling for a Mexican revolution on US soil: As American as apple pie
If that is the new definition of an “American,” go ahead and put an “un” in front of mine.
