Yeah it's an old article, but the images are the same as any May Day rally in Los Angeles.

I wonder if that photo was photoshopped
The shadows on those flags are different, the light source seems to be at a different angle

Either way, are the US really so weak that such a flag display is such a terrible thing?
Go to some places in Berlin or Duisburg and you will see only Turkish flags, but no German ones

And the Germans are afraid to do anything about that, aren't they?

..or perhaps they learned the downside of rabid nationalism the hard way.

Eh?

Don't know, it's live and let live I suppose...

I find it funny that the US, a country full of social Darwinists, feels so threatened by Hispanics or any other proud culture living on their soil

Oh no! Something was done to a flag 5 years ago! Get the flag police and STONE THE HEATHENS!

Michelle Malkin should do the US a favor and deport herself and her parents back to the Philippines. Considering she hates anchor babies so much, and she is an anchor baby that made sure her illegal parents could stay in the US.

All cultures are proud.
The Irish are proud.
The Polish are proud.
The Italians are proud.
The Mexicans are proud.

Etcetera

Which of the above proud groups defame the flag and want to take 'back' their land?

Which of the above proud groups think is it quite alright to enter illegally into the US, break multiple laws, and then demand their 'rights'?

Which of the above proud groups want everything in 'their' language?

I feel that my country is being threatened by that proud group that is invading and mocking our country.

How 'bout you?
