A MUST SEE video!
This is OLD and the man doing this was trespassing. He is lucky he wasn’t shot.
It is old news. At least 2 years. I don’t have You Tube access at work. But I do remember this story.
It’s not immigration, it’s an invasion.
Good idea, just take the American flag and tramp on the Mexican flag. They don’t deserve to have the American flag. If Mexico is such a great country, move. If not, obey the laws of this country. Only one flag (by law at least) is allowed to fly above the American Flag. That is the U.N. flag. However, even that pile of garbage will not fly above my National Ensign. I can tell you that!!
“Call a amber lance.”
An oldie but a goodie. From Oct 2007.
Yep....it’s old but a good reminder of what this country is all about. It’s illegal to fly any flag above the American flag in this country and the Vet was enforcing the law. If the Mexicans can’t understand this, they need to go home.
This is old, but I still remember it vividly.
Was he taking a risk as Clemenza points out? Yeah. But I stand behind him all the way, even if he was trespassing.
It is an invasion. La Raza makes it clear, and Obama’s last POS appointment to the SJC makes it clear he agrees with La Raza too.
I fear this is going to turn into more than just trespassing in our lifetime.
We may look back at this Vet as being someone who was firing the first shot in defense.
Call a amber lance.
Actually, Amber lamps.
Agree with his intentions, and appreciate the fact that the gentleman in question didn’t whine when he was picked up on trespassing.
It’s not illegal, it is a violation of the U.S. flag code
I havent heard of any arrests of stupid, misinformed or malevolent Americans or others being arrested by the flag police for disrespecting the US flag
I say let’s give them this year’s Rick Monday Award for Extraordinary Service in the Protection of the Dignity of the Stars and Stripes
My sister, who doesn’t have a drivers license and is disabled, finally found transportation from her rural home to the Social Security Office 40-miles away. She finally arrived only to discover it was ‘Hispanic Day’, and no one would serve her.
Did you call your congressman and Senator?
I did not like the in your face comments of the "journalist" after the event. Seems like he was trying to provoke.
even if he was trespassing
How do you trespass on a public street ? he may have invaded private property ?
In this situation, I really don’t give a f*** if he was trespassing, he did what I would have done.
The sidewalk is public property, so he wasn’t trespassing. He could be charged with theft or vandalism, but that’s about it.
bttt...it’s relevant now more than ever!
Must see photo:
The slogan on the back of a protesting Puerto Rican singer from the band Calle 13 says Luz verde para invadir Arizona. Translation: Green light to invade Arizona:
YES!!!! THANK YOU VETS!
Amen, these guys flying this should be tried for treason. I’m sick of this crap, go home.
You need to reference Clemenza’s post. Not my words.
Thanx, EV - I missed it the first time around and get why you posted again - in light of the AZ law passed...had no idea ANYONE would have the b*lls to fly the Mex flag over “old Glory”...anyone who supports this flying of the Mex flag over the Stars and Stripes needs to get the boot...
Broussard, run for something...ANY thing!
AMEN! But then he should have trampled on the Illegal Mexican Flag too! But enough was enough! AMEN!
there is a new call in town made famous by Our Dumb as a Rock Vice President!:
Jim Brossard is a HERO!!!!!!!!!
WAY TO GO, SIR!!!!
Thank you for honoring your country and for your service to it.
I remember it. Old and WONDERFUL news!
I did. He was right in asking them.
Why criticize the journalist for trying to provoke? What do you think the deadbeats who put the flags up in the first place were trying to do? Play nice?
Thank you, Metmom! Haha!
U ... S ... A ....! U ... S .... A .... !
I don’t know how I missed that when it made the news the first time but I sure am glad that it got posted again.
Remember this blast from the past?
Agreed. I do respect the fact that he put himself in that position by doing what he thought was the right thing to do. It was a small act of courage in a hurricane of events. Missed by most people, but we can appreciate it.
I didn’t mean that to sound snippy, but I was referring to Clemenza’s post, and it may indeed be true that by grabbing that hoist, cutting it and taking the flag, he might have crossed the public sidewalk to the private property.
I think that is what she meant.
Great memory. May it never be forgotten!
I sure do remember it.
Arizona stands up for America & the Heroes who did it
He didn’r burn the place or break the windows or rape the Senora or kill the children.
Trespass.....give me a break. superman just righted a wrong.
Please, don’t get me wrong. I agree completely with his actions, I admire and respect them.
When this came out several years ago, I was into a bunch of threads on this subject.
I have a huge amount of respect for this guy. Check out my post at #11 on this thread: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-bloggers/2501256/posts
I understand the position you are in.
Er...the position WE are in...is what I meant to say.
You are wrong, wrong, wrong.
(c) No other flag or pennant should be placed above or, if on the same level, to the right of the flag of the United States of America, except during church services conducted by naval chaplains at sea, when the church pennant may be flown above the flag during church services for the personnel of the Navy. No person shall display the flag of the United Nations or any other national or international flag equal, above, or in a position of superior prominence or honor to, or in place of, the flag of the United States at any place within the United States or any Territory or possession thereof: Provided, That nothing in this section shall make unlawful the continuance of the practice heretofore followed of displaying the flag of the United Nations in a position of superior prominence or honor, and other national flags in positions of equal prominence or honor, with that of the flag of the United States at the headquarters of the United Nations.
About fn time
Perhaps it would have been better for someone to have quietly spoken to the owner of the store and explained our customs regarding the U.S. flag.
