Not sure why Mexicans would be different.

And it's not uncommon for Americans to find them disgusting and we also have a country with free speech and should be able to tell them to prove their love for their own country by returning home to it.

We are allowed to see any of these people as shameless idiots who don't impress us because we know it's really the big easy American money they love much more than they love their homelands.

I suppose I should have provided a translation for those who aren't up on their Spanish yet:

"hahaha, how pathetic is is to watch the pochos trying to be here and there. Well over here you are gringos, chicanos, or pochos. Over there you are anything but gringos.

Technically you are like the dog that wanted two cakes but in the end had no cake, hahaha
You can claim you love Mexico like a German tourist that visits Mexico and loves the low cost, the culture, the food and all but never the less returns to Germany. Why? Because he is German. Just like you, you are nothing but some gringos.

If you really love Mexico, come back to Mexico, here are the challenges, show you love for this country. Many go to work in the USA, but they return, showing their love for their country, But you? You remain there. That's love? You're nothing but empty words. You now have made your money or were born there, you're out of your poverty, you're economically better or whatever - come back and show your love for Mexico, do something for this nation.

If you're waiting for the corruption, the poverty, the backwardness to end, here is where you can help solve these things. Over there how?

You're only hypocrits being very Mexican when in reality you are gringos that call yourselves Mexican to be insulted or to insult those whites or blacks or whatever and you stupidly shout "viva la raza" but you look ridiculous as if the blacks or yellows or or reds were not raza.

Live your foreign dream, gringos, die for your uncle sam, you deserve it, really you're not important, you're already gringos hah."

It's nothing but an opinion. The same kind of opinion we have toward these fake patriots waving their Mexican flags ever so proudly when the very last thing they'd want to do is go home and actually do something for their nation.

And I think this guy summed it up better than many of us can.

So you are somewhat correct.
No, I'm correct. They were not booing. Period. The author's idea of disrespecting the anthem comes from the fact air horns were sounding and bouncy balls were bouncing. Have you ever been to a soccer game and heard vuvuzelas etc. during the anthems? It happens a lot.

I didn't ask for the English translation, I asked if something "found out there" could be shown unsourced here...

Okay - an anonymous internet poster wrote it, I never claimed otherwise. There's no claim of it being some news source or anything of the sort. It's an opinion of these people that correlates with our own opinons of them but obviously not quite from the American point of view.

lolz.

I mean, if you want to validate your opinion by finding Internet postings, it can be done on literally any topic.

Hey -- it's the parallel with my opinion -- only coming from a Mexican. You have a problem with that? If I were a Mexican, that is exactly how I would feel.

So others who aren't Americans see these Mexicans parading their great love of Mexico while living and mooching off the USA as clowns also.

Wow... a new low malamute. So one Mexican bashes Mexican Americans, it shows that Americans are not alone in hating Mexican Americans? Great! Thanks for your sincerity, at least it is clear now that you hate Mexican-Americans.

How do we know that this one "so called" anonymous poster is not you? I don't see a link. You forgot to translate the entire thing but I will add this part, "You call yourselves Mexican when your own fellow countrymen humiliate you." As in exactly what you are doing right now.
