Immigrants Demand Texas Woman Take Down US Flag: Stars & Stripes "Offensive"!!!

My buddy sent me this link to this video in Youtube. I want you guys to share your opinions about this matter. I am a patriotic man and it hurts to see that this actually happened. From my great grandfather, my father and his brothers served the military and now I am in the service. No one should complain if we display our country's flag in our own country.

PS I don't have anything against immigrants because my wife is an immigrant too, I just want to point out if you are living in a foreign country, you have to respect their patriotism and other cultures.

Peace out!

A lot of us in this country came from people who were just that, immigrants. My ancestors came over to this country from Germany and Switzerland, years ago, because of religious persecution.

I used to read stories of those who came into this country via Ellis Island; they were so happy to reach this great land of ours that they cried tears of joy and kissed the ground. An immigrant that would find our flag offensive needs to go back to their country of origin immediately, or be sent to another country where freedom doesn't exist. Perhaps then that person would start to understand why we, in America, feel so strongly about our flag.

Men and women have DIED so that I can display that flag. It is more than just fabric sewn together in a pretty pattern; it represents what has made our country strong; faith in God, faith in our fellow man, and faith in ourselves.

I can't believe this! If that person is offended, why is he in america? He should respect other people's patriotism.

Hi John, Holy Smoke! These people migrate to a free country to escape whatever from their country and they find the Stars and Strips offensive?
As John Wayne would say, "well I'll be dammed".

I too find some immigrants to Canada are simply NUTS! Here too they come to live enjoying the peace and freedom, then complain of certain laws, as well wanting to bring some of their country's nonsense.
Why come in the first place? And they want our Government to do things like what they have "back home".

Should be when in Rome....
I am a proud Canadian past 22 years...
and I have told off....hey freedom of speech here...some new immigrants when I hear the things they grumble about...I tell them, "why the heck did you come here? Go back to where you come from"!
Some people just don't know the meaning of 'Freedom'. Lee.

Hello friend, that is really sad to know how other immigrant make such reaction about the flag on display. It is a symbol that needs to be respected. They should think that they are in the US and that is a US flag. They have no right to demand to put it down. They are so ungrateful!

Immigrants absolutely don't have the right to do such things in their adoptive country. If she doesn't like it, she's very much free to leave.

Have a beautiful Wednesday, John!

Thank you for serving our country Joops. I am a Navy wife and things like this get my blood boiling. If said immigrant was so offended by the American flag then why is that immigrant so happy to be in America? Arg!!! I have no problem with immigrants who come here and are respectful of our country and culture.

Marizylle said...

Oh My! That's too much to ask. I feel bad for the lady...

Clarissa said...

Why is there some people who doesn't know the meaning of freedom and who doesn't know how to show for some respect?

Have a nice day to you and your family,Sir John!
