This has been going on for a long time now.....

There's 2 things to remember as all of this goes on.

Things can only go so far......and..

"There's a limit to EVERYTHING!"


The way these people have been making fools of themselves and stirring up the boiling nitro bowl, their expiration date is right around the corner.

Yeah, the only time I really even have to ask is when it's a video that's been posted as the OP and nothing else.

If all I can hear is a bunch of high pitched screeching, I have no idea what that's about.

Friendly protest? Obviously I didn't think so.
The guys with the flags were driving by. Maybe they shouted a rebuttal to the protestors slogans. The protestor who grabbed the flag and threw it to the ground crossed the line. Not because it was our flag, but because it wasn't his property to grab and throw to the ground.
They chanted demanding respect and yet demonstrated none.
How I feel it applies to my story.
Some said I was at fault for driving my truck to work at a factory knowing how many felt about Japan. As if somehow this antagonized the vandals.
I get how the vandals felt. Misplaced loyalty to detroit and ignorance about the fact that my truck was at least as American as the average chevy dodge or ford of the day. In fact maybe more so. At least mine was assembled here by US citizens. Not true of the domestic trucks of the day. Mexico and Canada built theirs.
The protestors have a right to their protest. That right ended when they attacked someone elses property.
I wonder why the cop did not arrest the thug wearing the wife beater for the attack.

You are absolutely correct. I also noticed the police on site did nothing until the Americans went to retirieve our flag. As a disabled veteran this makes my blood boil. Too many of my good friends are no longer with us because they gave all to protect that flag.

Do you know why these people were marching? Your blanket assumptions are questionable at best and potentially put you beyond ignorant...and not in a good way.

BTW, all this legality applies if they are legal. If not then all bets are off.
How far do you think you would get in Mexico with a "peaceful demonstration" waving the American flag. I can guarantee that as soon as someone knocked the Mexican flag to the ground the police watching (if they hadn't broken it up already) would have opened fire on the person knocking down that flag before i was fully on the ground. Legal or illegal - if you don't love my country get the f*** out!
