They should be made to walk in front of their Federal Building with large signs, for like 8 hours after school. The banners should say: I hate America, and this is what I look like... Maybe 10 days worth should help them not be stupid. Acts have consequences......

We are going to lose this country to muslims if we don't take a stand now. Send those 15 rotten traitors back to the desert.

Not defending this stupid little under the radar BS they tried to pull off. But what if they graduate in 2011? Did they really think at an American high school that it would not go noticed? Idiots.

Yeah, and I TEAM ME - I agree to stop the settlement. Let's allow more immigrants that actually WANT to be here and do it legally! My wife is mentoring two teen girls from Nepal, and they and their families are unbelievably happy to be here! They love America, and know that despite it's imperfections, it is still the best place to experience freedom and opportunity.

Send all others back, or don't let them come in the first place!!

I'm with you! I don't think these kids meant anything by it. Personally I don't find their shirts as offensive as the hateful comments listed above. How low has this country become that 'we' want to kill children for making a bad judgement call. If the kids had been 'pure white' would anyone have made this big a deal? I don't think so. They probably would have been hailed as heroes for coming up with such a cool idea to express their pride in being members of the class of '11!
By the way - I'm a white Christian, born in this country (just in case any of you think I'm a Muslim extreamist or anything). Oh, and no where in the article does it mention their religion. Everyone just ass-u-me-s...
America has become a country of paraniod hateful morons!

Except for speech that is considered "fighting words" that is speech that is so offensive that it could insight violence. There was a Supreme Court decision on it. I don't remember the details
