Y’know, this is the US, not Mexico.
All those of you who think otherwise can damned well just leave.
Seriously. GET> THE> FUCK> OUT>.
It’s one thing to be proud of your heritage. I am proud of mine. And that includes Mexico.
But if this is what you have to offer the US, then get the hell out. You aren’t a citizen of this country. Your loyalty is to Mexico. Go there. Fix Mexico so others like you won’t have to come here and work shitty jobs that are still better than what they can have in Mexico. Go there and protest. See what it gets you.
But this country belongs to AMERICANS. We are a mixed bunch of mongrels from all over the world. Our ancestors assimilated to this country, not expecting the country to adapt to us, and we all have one thing in common. We love our country, our flag, and what it represents. We respect other flags, and understand the heritage that they represent. BUT THE US FLAG REIGNS SUPREME IN OUR HEARTS FOR WHAT IT REPRESENTS.
BUT. This flag, and the nation which it represents is not Mexico. If Mexico is your primary pride, then go there and protest. LEAVE. Let those of us who take pride in this country and hold it’s flag higher have this one back. Only in this country will you find the freedom to protest like you are. Remember, you left that country for this one for a reason.
If you do not feel this way, then return to the shithole of a country you fled. It is a shithole because folks like you left and/or refuse to clean it up.
I am tired of you shitting on and in my country.
Call me racist. You can label me any thing you want. But I take pride in the country of which I am a citizen. A proud citizen of this country, I welcome you with open arms until you think that the country which you left is more important EVEN FOR ONE DAY.
Either take pride in your adopted country or move to one in which you CAN take pride.
We have room for but one flag, the American flag, and this excludes the red flag, which symbolizes all wars against liberty and civilization, just as much as it excludes any foreign flag of a nation to which we are hostile … We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language … and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.”
Teddy Roosevelt, 1907
