- In mid-September, a college student in San Diego, California, was told he couldn’t fly the American flag from his apartment balcony because it might offend foreign students. (Hmmm, foreign students, San Diego, Mexican border. I wonder who they’re talking about).
- Also in mid-September, a Federal Court upheld a ruling to ban the American flag on Cinco de Mayo at a Northern California public school. (Does that mean the school has to take down their American flag in front of the school as well?)
- In late August, an elderly woman who had been flying her flag for 36 years was told she could no longer fly her flag outside her apartment complex.
- A U.S. Marine combat veteran was told in June he could only fly the American flag on American holidays outside his condominium in McLean, Virginia.
- In 2012, another elderly woman was told by a public housing authority she could no longer fly three small American flags from her apartment. (Why couldn’t they compromise and fly just one? After all, they were “small” flags.)
It’s difficult to believe and sadly, the list is endless; yet you will see that while some Americans can no longer fly our flag, Mexicans can fly their country’s flag.
Meet Tressy Capps, a Southern California political activist, a Patriot who honors our veterans and a candidate for Fontana’s City Council. She is receiving death threats and her 13-year old son is being harassed at school (calling his mom a racist) after she politely reminded a Mexican family (who have been here 13 years and don’t speak one word of English) they live in America, not Mexico.
In mid-August, Mrs. Capps was driving down a busy street in Ontario, California, when she noticed a gigantic Mexican flag flying in someone’s yard. She pulled over, got out of her car, walked up to the home and calmly asked (through a screened window),”You know we live in America, right? This is the United States, so why are you flying your Mexican flag in your front yard?”
She captured the conversation on video which she uploaded to YouTube on August 11. On August 13, she went back to the house, and a very small American flag was “displayed.” After the video started going viral in mid-September, Mrs. Capps took an interpreter with her to apologize. The homeowner told her she could fly any flag she wanted, but also admitted she had just purchased the very large American flag by the doorway.
Watch KNBC Los Angeles’ clip from September 25: “Tonight— caught on camera—a woman was so upset by a Mexican flag in front of a stranger’s house, she pulled over and berated them.”
She was not “caught on camera,” and she didn’t “berate them.” (It was Mrs. Capps own video.) The partial video NBC used is from Mrs. Capp’s own YouTube Channel where she frequently posts videos of political events. In their video (they showed up unannounced), you’ll see a very large American flag flying by their front door with the Mexican flag still in the front yard, but the night Mrs. Capps first spoke to the residents, she said it was not there. Mrs. Capps said they lied to the media telling them the gigantic flag was originally there on August 11.
I contacted Mrs. Capps and she told me her video only went viral after the nearby city, Riverside’s City Council, voted on September 26 by 3-1 to keep the city from becoming a sanctuary city. (Sanctuary for whom? Law-breakers? People invading our country and planting their flag on our soil?) One councilman referred to the Resolution as “humanitarian assistance” to all immigrants, including recent ones.
When the liberals want to justify the illegal act of being invaded by millions of people who are coming here to take our jobs plus our tax money in the form of welfare, housing, education and ObamaCare, they try to justify it by calling these invaders “immigrants.” This, of course, is an insult to law-abiding tourists, students and legitimate foreign workers who have entered the country legally.
Mrs. Capps is shocked at the hatred being directed toward her by the Mexican community. LatinoRebels.com and Pocho.com got wind of the YouTube video, and their viewers started harassing her with emails, texts, Tweets, calling her office and cell number. As a result, she has been disassociated with her real estate broker, Coldwell Banker. The local police department is taking the threats, many of which are disturbing, seriously.
Mrs. Capps was told by an Ontario City Council she thought the flag in the front yard was a violation of a City Code, but another Council member said there is no code prohibiting it.
Before the Internet sites started targeting Mrs. Capps, they went after Ly Kou, a Murrieta, California, political activist who was targeted on a Latino web site for speaking out against the all-out invasion orchestrated by the Obama administration—a subject she is schooled on after escaping from a Communist dictatorship. Here is a link to Ly Kou’s stirring speech at the Riverside City Council meeting.
Finally, think about the historical ramifications of this. A group of people invade our country; acquire a plot of land which they claim is their own; plant a foreign flag and refuse to speak English. This has always been considered an act of war. If you don’t believe it, consider LaRaza and their affiliates who have publicly proclaimed that they want to take the southern border states back for Mexico—to which a cry still echoes throughout our land—“Remember the Alamo!”
