Well, welcome to my incredibly divisive thread. Apparently these guys are Mexican and are from Costa Mesa (a place I've lived) and it is predominately latino(a), and its right next to Santa Aana. Thats really besides the point.



In the video you'll see them claim their heritage and say that there is only one country in America and that their parents came here to be part of this country and work hard here in America. Which is totally fine with me I get it. They also voice that they are disgusted with the atitude of modern migrants who are American haters.

I know this won't fit into the PC agenda and I'm probably hurting some feelings here but for perspective, I figured I'd share what apparently other Mexicans are thinking about whats going on.

Protected free speech.

While I do not realty like flag burning personally I will defend someone's rights to do so. Unlike many European countries which make it illegal to do this I feel that your freedom of expression should not be compromised.

I agree.

What do you think about the points they make?

I mostly agree with them. I think what makes America unique is our ability to assimilate other peoples and cultures.

Yeah, I'm very disturbed by the actions taken with the Chanting and American flag burning immigrants waving Mexican flags at American political rallies.

We've been to nice time to let the lions out.

Personally, I'm not a fan of flag burning but I support someone's right do it.

Meh, IMHO nationalism and patriotism are used to control the masses and silence criticism of the State.

Yeah i feel that way too but as long as the majority of people are buying into that paradigm we have to kind of work with it until more people come around.

It is annoying to see any flagged burned. However, it is legal. I am not sure why they were burning the Mexican flag.
If it is because they are upset to see the American flag burned, 2 wrongs don't make a right.

They were a little rambling.

What? I thought you agreed with AM that flag burning was freedom of expression, but you want to "let the lions out" for people expressing themselves in a way you disagree?

You can't just pick and choose who gets to freely express themselves and who does not.

I agree that they should be allowed to do whatever they want but it doesnt mean i have to agree with their perspective.

I was actually down the minutes before you came into this thread defending illegal American hating immigrants burning our flag on US soil.

Flag burning is an American right, god bless rights, well rights we still have left. Btw, speaking of rights, Trump fully supports our Big Brother system which effectively takes away our rights and privacy.

I know it isn't PC but speaking of burning things, here are Mexican's burning effigies of Trump all across Mexico.

But you want to sick them to the lions. That goes beyond disagreement.

Obsess much? I'm flattered.

Anyway, let them burn flags and hate whomever they want. That's freedom. Get used to it.

Ohhhhh here we go.

Sorry if I have a problem with illegal immigrants protesting our political events waving foreign flags and chanting the the name of their home country.

Your just going to have to deal with the fact that I have a problem with that.
