I agree with this as the child of immigrants. I would never fly a German flag. I am American. There is only one country I would fight for: United States.

People used to try much harder to assimilate whereas now we emphasize identity politics, including to new immigrants!

Do you not know about the Armenian Genocide? That's when I see the flag the most. It's their month. Let them have it.

Ding, ding, ding! We have a winner! Not to mention the current aggression going on between Armenia and Azerbaijan regarding Karabakh.

I'd also point out that many of those Armenians with the flags, no matter if they're actual flags or bumper stickers, very might well be natural born Americans who very well might be from a part of Armenia that is no longer in Armenia proper. That last part is relevant to the OP's why are they here if they want to fly their flag sentiment, because Armenians have been in the US in large numbers since the genocide in WWI.

OP: See link below for a video showing the Irish flag being raised in New York City on St. Paddy's day. Are you as morally outraged by this brazen act of anti-Americanism as you are with what you see in Glendale?

I also think if we saw these other flags alongside the U.S. flag it would be far better. Bumper stickers are a little tacky as far as I am concerned, but if you're going to put a foreign flag there, it ought to have our flag too. Just my thought, by no means a rule.

Actually, he hates America. He doesn't believe in liberty. He would rather America be a flag-based dictatorship, that he's the dictator of.

You mean when our 18 year old kids are in their country fighting and dying for their freedom? I actually prefer we were not there and let the rest of the world handle their own issues and fight their own wars.

My comments are regarding people who choose to come to our country by their own free will to reap the benefits that we offer that no other country has.
