MILLENIUM Talk WKXW (NEW JERSEY 101.5)/TRENTON afternoon "JERSEY GUYS" CASEY BARTHOLOMEW and RAY ROSSI have reacted to the story about five CALIFORNIA high schoolers sent home for wearing American flag T-shirts on CINCO DE MAYO by declaring MAY 14th of this year, and the second FRIDAY in MAY every year, as "AMERICA DAY."
BARTHOLOMEW said, "AMERICA DAY will allow people of all races, cultures, and age groups to express their pride about in living in AMERICA. Unlike the 4th of JULY, AMERICA DAY does not celebrate a war in which countless British citizens were slaughtered, and had land which they had already rightfully stolen from the Indians, taken from them."
The hosts are encouraging people to wear red, white, and blue on AMERICA DAY, and to "engage in traditional American activities like eating hot dogs, drinking COCA-COLA, enjoying apple pie, filing frivolous lawsuits, and watching reality television, and then denying it later."
