Two Mexican-Americans expressed how they felt about disruptive Mexicans, America and businessman Donald Trump by burning a flag, but it might not be what you think.
The two men uploaded a video to YouTube last week in which they unabashedly expressed their support for America. Standing in front of an American flag, one of the men was wearing a “USA” shirt and the other wore a “Make America Great Again” shirt.
The men declared that they were standing up to liberals and anti-Trump protesters — specifically, the ones they encountered recently in Costa Mesa.
“This is about America, the American people, and our flag,” one of the men said.
The patriotic men said they believed that there was no room for any other flag but the American flag.
They also said that they had pride in their heritage and added that if you choose to move to another country, you should assimilate. They clarify that this doesn’t mean abandoning your heritage, but simply learning the language of the land and supporting yourself.
The people who don’t want to assimilate simply want to be disruptive because they are a “bunch of thugs and punks,” one of the men said. They admonished those who come to America and take but never give back.
“If you don’t like it, go back,” one of the men said, as the other man set the Mexican flag on fire.
