I don't know what more it's going to take before people really see what is going on in this country.

DimeWars.Com - Mexican Protester Knock U.S. Flag to the Ground - Almost Started a Riot

You have a group of young people here, first generation anchor babies who think they're oppressed and think that Latinos are oppressed. And they are the most vocal calling for communism/socialism to take hold in this nation.

They all forget where they came from, how lucky they are to be in the USA, and what happened in this country before they arrived.

What a fine display of assimilation.

That's so freaking pathetic and what was the cop doing? You see that kid in the white shirt got a little scared there when he saw the truck doors open. It's sad though that people are acting like this is about race. It's not supposed to be whites vs brown people or brown people vs blacks. This is about people from other countries coming in and taking what is available to legal residents and workers. So, it cracks me up when an immigrant or US citizen is against the US flag. Why are you here if you want to knock the flag over? You mean to tell me you are fighting to stay in the country that you are crapping on? It makes no sense.

Also, it's so messed up how they are talking about things that really make no sense legally or logically. How are you going to be saying, "Mexican-American" and then be promoting nothing but Mexico? It's obvious that by "Mexican-American," they mean Mexicans living in the US. I'm sorry, but I don't care enough about Mexico to support these people in their quest to boost up Mexico. And, first of all, what has Mexico done for them? The U.S. has done WAY more for these KIDS in this video than Mexico has ever done for them.

well what can I say.
Every one knows that only whites are racist and no body else.
Yeah I did notice that little punk in the white shirt kinda move outa the way when that evil white racist deassed the truck.
In fact I noticed most of the brown boys cleared out and only the women folk stuck around.

How do you know the nationality and legal status of the guy in the video? If a White guy burns a flag at an anti war rally do you call him an illegal? Do you say he is French, English, etc..?? When a Hispanic grabs a flag you automatically call him a Mexican. You also contradict yourself when you call him anchor baby. Anchor baby implies he was born in the USA. How can he be Mexican when he was born in the USA?

People who are born here call themselves "Mexican" all the time. Where are you going with this?

You're absolutely correct. Far too many of them still call themselves Mexicans even though they were born here.
