The American Flag disrespectful to Americans?

There are so many things wrong with the Live Oak Highschool incident it's hard to know where to begin.

The key to my frustration is this mentality:
"I think they should apologize cause it is a Mexican Heritage Day," Annicia Nunez, a Live Oak High student, said. "We don't deserve to be get disrespected like that. We wouldn't do that on Fourth of July."

If you're an American, how can the American flag ever be considered disrespectful?

Should all of the Americans that are now living in England get royally offended if the British dare to wave their flag on the Fourth of July?

It's hard to empathise with a group that wants our healthcare and educational system free of charge but then finds the flag of the country that is footing the bill 'disrespectful'.
