When fascism comes to Ameirca

It will be wrapped in the flag of 'save the planet' or we will all die!

It will be wrapped in the flag of 'guns r evil' ban them or we will all die!

It will be wrapped in the flag of 'hey that guy over there has too much money take some from him'.

It will be wrapped in the flag of 'hey people are 'dying' because they don't have free healthcare care'.

It will be wrapped in the flag of 'hey we don't need no stinking borders the law is for someone else'.

Oh fascism is already here.

And it isn't wrapped in any GD flag.

Nice exposition but that doesn't answer the questions that remain.

What makes Mexico so great ?

There aren't millions of people flocking there to live.

Fascism is already here, Neo.

It's not wrapped in a flag, but in a layer of propaganda that only true Americans are white, Christian conservatives that love god, guns, their country, conservatism....and the enemies are immigrants, the poor, socialists, commies, non-Christians and those that disagree politically.

It's become so bad that even the Democrat party is just a "diet" version of the Republican party.

So please, don't regurgitate your talking points and complain that fascism is coming.....because it's here and your helping it along.

There are anywhere between 30-50 million illegals living here from Mexico.

You know that place where 'rich' Americans go to vacation.

And the poor well everyone knows the rest.

Hell bout the only thing Mexico exports that is noteworthy are drugs, and illegals.

So you are obfuscating so as to not answer the question. Why? Oh crap. Another question. Are you EVER going to answer any of these questions or are we just wasting our time?

Oh and here's your answer to you question. Mexico is a country that people are from. Thus they have an affinity to it. Great? I don't recall them ever claim that. There's only one that I hear blat that inanity.

I'll answer, if I may.

The flag represents more than just a piece of land between borders. It represents heritage, culture, family, history, memories....all sorts of things. Mexico may not be the greatest place on earth, but it's still where many people came from or call home.

America is the land where you can come to enjoy your freedoms and partake in the melting-pot of liberty.....no matter your native country. You can also fly the flag of your home country because this nation is/was a nation built on the backs of the diverse population.

Isn't that what makes America great? Isn't that what made America what it is today?

That's the best I can do because your question, what makes Mexico so great, is irrelevant. We should be asking, what makes America great? The answer is because you can be anyone from anywhere and you still have the same freedoms.

Sometimes I think people need to take a chill pill.

My brother lives in the States and like his neighbours he flies the flag(s). I just think they are too confused to ask what they are!





Flags of Dorset and Wiltshire respectively.

Just remember the point is that all countries have issues. Mexico..we know there are issues there. America -we have huge issues with spying on average citizens, drone strikes on children, starting wars etc. But we should all be proud of where we came from. America is the land of the free...supposedly. So WE should be free to fly any flag we want. That's freedom, right? I chose to fly an American flag. Right in my place of business. it's huge! Like 6' by 4' or something. Don't have time to measure it right now. Right on my wall in my business. you can't miss it. I have a mirror on the wall opposite it. A huge mirror so like everywhere you look you see my American flag. It's my right! If I went into another place of business and they had the russian flag flying...well that's their business. If my neighbor has a Mexican flag flying in their yard. that's their business to. We're all free here, in America to do what we want. Amen.

Sorry Neo. It's not propaganda. It's truth.

For the rest of us that are not blinded by our political ideology, we can recognize the problem and where it's coming from.

Wake up Neo. Seriously dude.

i don't think that "they" think that "mexico is so great" the majority of mexicans illegal or not have come here for a better life, and the majority of mexicans are hard working and are law abiding citizens. it is a shame that the illegals have to break the law to get here and its a shame that their country is so screwed up. i think the flag waving has to do with their pride of their culture more so than trying to think that their country is better than ours.

Thats fine and dandy Neo but try to remember the question you asked here I will show it to you again.




What makes Mexico so great ?


In case you can't be bothered to click on the link.


They live in Mexico full-time and enjoy better weather, a more relaxed lifestyle, and a host of other benefits—including affordable top-quality health care and a much lower overall cost of living.


I had a great time there aside from one instance with the cops but now if I were to be honest the cops aren't any better here now. Dental is very affordable there as well but I have a dentist I see in Costa Rica that I like so I stopped going to Mexico.

You can not get any more demagogic.

If I had a nickle for every time someone told me what I think I would be an evil one percenter.

Demagoguery?

That's an interesting term to use because one famous demagogue was Joseph McCarty. He is the father of the term McCarthyism.


McCarthyism is the practice of making accusations of disloyalty, subversion, or treason without proper regard for evidence. It also means "the practice of making unfair allegations or using unfair investigative techniques, especially in order to restrict dissent or political criticism."[1] The term has its origins in the period in the United States known as the Second Red Scare, lasting roughly from 1950 to 1956 and characterized by heightened political repression against communists, as well as a campaign spreading fear of their influence on American institutions and of espionage by Soviet agents. Originally coined to criticize the anti-communist pursuits of U.S. Senator Joseph McCarthy of Wisconsin, "McCarthyism" soon took on a broader meaning, describing the excesses of similar efforts. The term is also now used more generally to describe reckless, unsubstantiated accusations, as well as demagogic attacks on the character or patriotism of political adversaries.


We have seen a huge rise of McCarthyism within the fascist right of this country. "Commies are bad! You're a socialist! You're unpatriotic for not flying the right flag!".

Excellent choice of words Neo. Thanks.

Then the shoe fits.

Since truth and facts, aka EVIDENCE never enter in to the equation of American politics.

It is ALL about perception.

And someone's bias is clearly showing.
