Waving the flag of the country they're desperate not to be sent back to, and burning tires in front of the Tegucigalpa-located embassy of the nation they're supposedly desperate to live in, the Honduras caravan migrants, their organizers and their supporters don't exactly come off as big fans of the United States.
Here's how the Daily Mail captioned one of its photos, seen here:
In Tegucigalpa, Honduras protesters burn tires at the US embassy during a march in support of the caravan of migrants on Friday. Hundreds of people marched to express their solidarity with the caravan of migrants trying to reach the United States
And as it happened, it was led by the Guatemala-arrested-and-deported organizer of the caravan, the far-left Honduran politician and supporter of Hugo Chavez and Mel "cowboy hat" Zelaya, Bartolo Fuentes.
Nor does the caraan come across as entirely free of thugs intent on harming others: According to the Daily Mail:
Late Friday night, Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto said in an address to the nation that a large group of migrants had 'tried to enter Mexican territory irregularly, attacking and even hurting some elements of the Federal Police.'
'Mexico does not permit and will not permit entry into its territory in an irregular fashion, much less in a violent fashion,' he said.
The Mail also has some vivid pictures of Honduran-flag waving would-be migrants burning flags in front of the U.S. embassy in Tegucigalpa.

Strange actions for a deprived, starving, meek and humble bunch of helpless beggars.
By burning our flag and harassing our embassy they are endearing themselves to the Left that they are fellow America hating Leftists. I would imagine that’s the point.
They’re really militants waiting to come here, arm themselves and create havoc. The military has to stop them.
Because they’re stupid.
Burning tires ruins the environment and may cause pollution and global climate change. They will have to be punished strongly.
Why the hell aren't they doing this in front of their own Government Capital building protesting to improve the conditions in their own shit-hole Country so people don't have to leave ????
This drives me crazy !
The US is making a huge strategic error if it lets the column make it to the US border and assemble with women and children in front to face off with US forces who will likely not use force against them. Instead, irregular small teams and proxies should be infiltrating the caravan and removing leaders, disrupting operations, sabotaging vehicles and otherwise breaking up the column. Organizers like this one in Honduras should just become another casualty in the violent Honduran society.
Funded by George Soros, who is colluding with a foreign government in an attempt to influence US elections. Where is Mueller?
because they’re being paid to
Im so proud of the rest of the world. Stepping up to take in all those poor people. Were sooo terrible... /s
Activate the military now.
Write a Presidential Finding of a Clear and Present Danger and name Mexico, Guatemala, and Honduras as the sources of the threat.
Order the Customs Department to search individually and and great length every single container entering the United States from Mexico. Back the rail lines all the way to The Guatemalan Border.
Same thing with the trucks. Freeze all commercial traffic until every single box or carton is individually cleared.
Freeze all remittances to any nation south of the Rio Grande. All of them and at once. Fine any financial institution who refuses to comply. Ignore any inferior Court that says otherwise and appeal directly to SCOTUS. Order the Attorney General to file or respond to such a suit immediately. If he refuses fire him.
Order the FBI, the NSA, and the CIA to investigate the sources of funding and support for these people and to turn over the results in 30 days or less. Any official refusing to carry our these orders is to be fired on the spot.
All of these are within the lawful powers of the President.
He should do so immediately.
This despicable parade of filth is the moral equivalent.
Follow-through would be to go ahead and cut off all aid to Honduras and Guatemala, to be followed by all aid to Mexico, and voiding of the recent USMCA treaty if the invading "army" gets to the US border. For all Mexico's weak talk about turning this back, the current Mexican leadership has threatened us, as has AMLO, with over-running us with gang members, criminals and the cartels, and actively encouraged their population to invade us.
Besides the adverse optics of the Dem-encouraged Black Lives Matter, Antifa, and the Kavanaugh hearings debacle, we now have visuals of an enthusiastic organized army, waving their national banners, showing contempt for our country, growing every day, bragging about how they are going to overwhelm our border and invade our country. That's got to scare a lot of low-information Dems and undecideds.
I think this was a photo shop job.
We should have the army set up shop about 10 or so miles inside Mexican territory. If they let supposedly unarmed Hondurans through, surely they won’t mind the US Army squatting down on their land.
The people in the beginning of the caravan will not be the people at the end. The women and children who start out will not go very far. There are people who are making it happen. They are promoting it. They are facilitating it. But the people come from local groups. And they fade away as it gets boring or strenuous. Unions and other liberal groups will be in the caravan. Maybe even gangs will be in the caravan. As it gets closer to the United States, democrats and socialist from the USA will join the caravan. They will be there to make the group larger. And to cause trouble and to push the mob at the US border. They hope to overwhelm the boarder police and wall. If the border police shoot at the crowd, the cameras will be there to record it. Lets see if the border control has a plan.
