Burning the Mexican Flag
self | 3/30/2006 | Conservative Voice

Posted on 03/30/2006 5:23:00 PM PST by ConservativeVoice

Given the anger many of us feel at the masses marching waving Mexican flags and supporting the invasion of illegal immigrants drwoning parts of our nation, how many Freepers in teh NY/NJ area would be interested in a counter-protest where the Mexican flag was burned as a symbol of our rage?

I am in Rockland County, NY.

I still think we need a website to post photos of ourselves burning the Mexican rag. I'll print one off the internet for it.

I've said it on another thread, and I'll say it again here.
Burning the Mexican flag is a very bad idea because it only gives the President and his liberal allies visual ammunition to claim we're all racists.

Think for a minute just how effective a visual the picture of the Mexican flag flying over the US flag (upside down) is for our side. Don't provide the bad guys with as effective a picture.

Demonstrate, write letters, contribute to Tom Tancredo, but don't burn a Mexican flag...

I'll put it on my website. Haven't posted anything in a while, but think we need to start a mass counter-movement where we burn teh mexican flag at every event and show how pissed off we really are.

Mexicans are not a special "race". They went to the United Nations and demanded a vote that they are "white folks", and the UN complied.

So, all Mexicans are "white folks".

Makes it OK to burn their flag.

Aw geeze. I'm not real sure burning another nations flag, save Iran or Saudi Arabia is really what we need to be doing. But hey its a free country do what you want.

Why am I reminded of the Farside cartoon where the man is being carried face down on a stretcher along the castle wall with a bunch of arrows sticking out of his bare but and is saying to the guy carrying him, "So then I sez we oughtta moon those saxon dogs."

I love and respect our flag. I respect the flags of all countries. Just because others do it, does not mean we, Americans, should do it.
Do it if you want, I assume you're an adult.

That's just it. I don't care if they call me racist. It's not true and I suspect they know it. They only do it because it's been effective. I'm declaring it ineffective.

Look how many years they've been calling Tom Tancredo names and he hasn't stopped.

more effective to carry the mexican flag with a sign telling the politicians we will not forget them on election day because of this flag...

Don't be a hypocrite. If you don't like your(our) flag being burned, it will make you feel better to burn their flag?

What? Americans are going to burn Mexican flags?

Go ahead and burn a Mexican flag if it makes you feel better.

I know what you're saying - I don't care if they call me racist either. But we have an opportunity here to roll back the globalist agenda if we stay focused and stick to the most effective forms of action. What good will it be if we burn a flag, giving the MSM images to splash across the evening news and the end result is that amnesty gets passed?

I don't think you should burn their flag. You're merely falling down to their level.

Then you shouldn't have a problem burning the UN flag.

OK. If we don't burn it, how about some serious suggestions on a public protest to get our politicians' attention, get out in front with the media and show that there are angry, mature Yankees that intend to hold on to there country.

Ok...one last attempt. This from the Minuteman website...

There will be NO Mexican flag burning!!

The Minuteman Project does not endorse or encourage violence; this includes aggressive demonstrations that create malicious behavior such as flag burning, rioting, or any physical contact of any kind. In this time of social turmoil many anti-American groups wish to cause harm to the name of the Minutemen, because they know that the Minutemen stand for peace and the Rule of Law. The Minutemen are a model of strength and personal control in a time of civil disobedience.

...Abide by all federal, state, and local laws. Follow all instructions by law enforcement. Be courteous and professional at all times; you are Minutemen and are held to a higher standard.


There is a double standard out there that will be used against our mission should we give the leftists and globalists even the slightest bit of ammo to use against us.

In the end, what is important is (1) Getting a wall built, (2) No guest worker programs, (3) No amnesties, (4) Mass deportation.

Why not just burn toilet paper (preferably used) and call it the Mexican flag. Basically the same thing, but toilet paper is less expensive.

You see, there's a problem with the politicians. There seems to be a Border Patrol in Congress--- being very careful not to cross the Borders of Political Correctness.

I think the burning of flags has become so deja vu -- with Americans and everybody else burning somebody's flag -- that it's almost meaningless at this point. BUT - Rush alerted me to this and I checked out on Drudge - what I find FAR MORE offensive is the high school principal in Houston who had the Mexican flag hoisted along with the U.S. and Texas flag at his school. This is far more insidious than an act comitted by some irrational (and constitutional)
group of protesters. It's an act by an official paid by tax payers and part of our public education school system who took it upon himself to raise a foreign flag on public
property that implied that this foreign nation has parity with the United States - as displayed publically on the people's property. I won't even discuss how this contributes to the increasing indifference(even hostility) many impressionable students have towards America's history and role in foreign affairs.
