The government turned against the "melting pot" when official multiculturalism and affirmative action came in.

I didn't think you were a fan of multiculturalism. Guess I was wrong

Why aren't you flying an American flag on your car?

*sigh*

The fact that a lot of Americans don't have an American flag to wave on their car doesn't mean they lack patriotism. That is ludicrous to say. Regarding your second statement, this country was developed by foreigners coming from a different country. Did they not bring their culture with them? Would you suggest we get rid of ethnic enclaves?

I feel the only ones who have the right to be complaining about foreigners in this country are the Natives.

I guess because those types of flags doesn't represent hate. It's a supposed free country.

So I guess the OP also has issues with people flying the Italian flag, Irish flag, etc etc in America?

Who cares? It's not hurting anyone. Maybe if your nationality had been through a genocide, you might feel differently about it.

I'm pretty sure I saw a car with Armenian flags on it today. I know the Armenian genocide day is coming up..but maybe they are getting started early?

I think having a large flag of any type on your car is tacky, but it's not a big deal

How do you feel about the US imprinting itself forcefully in countries and cultures all around the world? Including waving our flag in our operations in their homelands.
