THIS IS AN OUTRAGE!

There is a growing sense of outrage in Kalispell Montana after a Mexican flag was erected in front of a U.S. flag 200 feet up a huge tower that belongs to the oldest radio station in America - KGEZ.

Station owner John Stokes said that he was getting calls from angry supporters of the extremist La Reconquista movement, a separatist group that advocates the violent overthrow of the southern and western U.S. states, before also receiving death threats.

Two Mexican males entered the premises of KGEZ and demanded that another U.S. flag that was on a flagpole be taken down because it was "disrespectful". The flag was later stolen.

On Wednesday morning the station's ice covered 400 foot radio tower was scaled and the Mexican flag was hung in front of old glory.

The Kalispell Police blotter makes mention of the incident but it has received no attention in the media.

Similar incidents have increased over the past few years. Last month, a veteran from Reno, Nev. made headlines after he took matters into his own hands and tore down a Mexican flag that was being illegally flown above a U.S. flag at a local business.

According to federal law it is illegal to fly any flag above the U.S. flag, and if flying more than one they must be on separate poles and be of an equal size.

The latest incident will fuel tensions about U.S. immigration policy, especially in light of recent revelations concerning the explosion of illegal immigrants now living in America.

Growing Outrage? Please... Well, maybe growing in the seperatist groups...
Knowing Stokes is it possible that he did it or had it done? I wouldn't put it past him to do a stunt like this to stir up his 50 or so listeners and get in the paper.
If this indeed did happen as stated it won't be hard to identify the culprits out of the 5 or 10 that are in this valley
Oh wait, I know it's a conspiracy driven by Goldman Sachs, Rockafellers and Israel conglomerates to drive him out of business since they see him as a threat.

Disclaimer:
This is just an opinion, not given or represented as fact so don't file legal papers on it...

Also just to clear up a common myth it's not illegal to fly a flag above the american flag, it's just an advisory and custom (see below)

Display and use of flag by civilians; codification of rules and customs; definition
The following codification of existing rules and customs pertaining to the display and use of the flag of the United States of America be, and it is hereby, established for the use of such civilians or civilian groups or organizations and may not be required to conform with regulations promulgated by one or more executive departments of the Government of the United States. The flag of the United States for the purpose of this chapter shall be defined according to title 4, United States Code, Chapter 1, Section 1 and Section 2 and Executive Order 10834 issued pursuant thereto.

The Mexica Movement is the name of a activist group in the United States who assert their ancestry from Indigenous people of North America as the basis for "liberating" the North American continent from people of European-descent. Their organization views Mexicans, Central Americans, Native Americans, and Canadian First Nations as one people who are falsely divided by European-imposed borders. The group states that European-descent people have committed massive genocide and occupied the Western Hemisphere since 1492.

Their ultimate objective is the civilized, non-violent, democratic "liberation" of the North American continent from European-descendents. The organization seeks to create a future nation called Anahuac. This nation will be comprised of North and Central America, fused into a single super-state, under the democratic control of Indigenous people. The group possesses a large library of indigenous manuscripts and academic research materials which serve as their inspiration for recreating a future indigenous civilization (independent of European control).

The group views White people as "Europeans" who squat on Indigenous lands. This liberation is expected to take place over multiple generations and involves marshaling massive media and educational resources in order to change the way people understand the history of the continent and its people.

Ok, I won't argue that this group exists but what makes anyone think they're here in the flathead except for the word of "there's a government spy around every corner" and "everythings a consipiracy to get me/us" radio station owner? Please....

Does anyone REALLY think that a group like that would A. Come to one of the whitest places in the country where deer outnumber minorities? B. Actually try and influence one of the more remote,conservative, no effect on politics places in the country?k

I think I'll put the idea that this group is here and active right along with the "we attacked ourselves on 9/11" paranoia where it belongs, under fiction. Right along side the 3-4 radio people who claim to know the truth about everything!

I doubt the station owner had a foreign flag placed over the US Flag. People need to wake up and do a soul check. We are being attacked and invaded. Do you not understand this yet?

I'm aware of this group. They're angry, bitter, hateful and don't rule out violence to get what they want.

I get we're being invaded, just not here (yet) unless it happened while I was out this morning.
