See Where Chanting ‘U-S-A!’ Is Not Allowed

Kevin DeAnna, World Net Daily, March 7, 2012

Chanting the name of your own country is now prohibited.

Basketball players at Alamo Heights High School defeated San Antonio Edison in Texas on Saturday. In jubilation, Alamo Heights students began chanting “USA, USA!”

School officials immediately stopped the chant because they believed it was disrespectful.

Reporter Brian Mylar’s article at KSAT.com was headlined “Racial incident mars high school game” and termed it a “disturbing incident.”

However, in an interview with WND, he admitted he was not actually at the event and the report was based on video.

In the WND interview, Mylar commented that there were no racial chants, but the chant of “USA” was taken by some to be racial.

When asked if the other team’s fans had responded in any way, he said that he did not know because he was not at the event and the report was based on video. He also responded that he did not know if the predominantly Hispanic fans of San Antonio had chanted anything that caused Alamo Heights fans to respond in this way, saying, “I don’t know. We don’t want to start a race war.”

According to the San Antonio Independent News, the chant of “USA” lasted about five seconds before being silenced by the coach of Alamo Heights.

The Edison team also was already in the locker room. However, San Antonio Independent School District Athletic Director Gil Garza filed a complaint with the University Interscholastic League on Tuesday.

School officials of both districts immediately condemned the students. According to Mylar, San Antonio Independent School District spokeswoman Leslie Price stated, “It is surprising and it’s disappointing to hear that anyone would be out there making those kinds of remarks.”

Alamo Heights Supt. Kevin Brown also apologized, saying, “We just hope that people know that that’s not who we are and we’re not going to let it happen again.”

Alamo Heights as a school has also apologized and the students identified will be banned from state title games and be forced to apologize, officials said. According to the San Antonio Independent News, some of the Alamo Heights students who chanted “USA” and have been punished are Hispanic.

    Look on the bright side. The repudiation of patriotism leads to the renaming of schools and streets, which lets whites know which neighborhoods to avoid. I imagine that the intersection of Cesar Chavez Jr. Street and MLK Boulevard sends up a red flag that Washington Street and Jefferson Avenue might not.

    • MissBonnie123

      The problem is that eventually, if nonwhites take over our country, EVERY street will be named in honor of a nonwhite or, at the very least, not one will be allowed to remain with a White person’s name.

  • Mexicans do not come to this country to be Americans. They come here to expand Mexico’s territory.
    They will never stop being Mexicans. This is just another reason why all illegal aliens should be immediately  deported along with their anchor babies.  In not too many years this scenario will be repeated in other large cities in the southwest. Its hell when you are declared a racist for professing pride in your country especially when you are in your own country.

      They come here for Free White Money.

      •  Free White Money is what they come here for and it is also the enabler that keeps them here.  Mexico has literally sent an invading army across our borders. How convenient that our tax dollars are paying for our own destruction.

         

  • I’m surprised that WND (a source about which I’m sometimes suspicious) actually published a piece by Kevin DeAnna, the “untouchable white racist.”  Maybe they’re making progress.

  • Shawn_thefemale

    Excuse me. Didn’t those people who came here know that this actually WAS the USA? Where did they think they were, Oz?

    This is absolute insanity: “I’m so sorry we’re Americans. Please forgive us. We don’t mean to be. We’ve created this wonderful country and we want to give it to you. Here, take this…and this… oh, and we want you to have some of this…And here’s my gun – go ahead and shoot us, because we don’t deserve to live.”

    God help us.

    Daily Mail (London), June 27, 2011

    If the U.S. soccer team were hoping for the home advantage during Saturday’s Gold Cup final then they were in for a nasty surprise.Despite being the ‘home’ side in California’s Rose Bowl stadium, the majority of fans–most of them American born of naturalized Mexicans–booed and jeered the U.S. team.The surprising scenes were followed by angry outbursts from U.S. team goalkeeper Tim Howard, who was visibly shaken after the entire post match ceremony was conducted in Spanish.Speaking after the game, Howard said: ‘[tournament organisers] CONCACAF should be ashamed of themselves.‘I think it was a [expletive] disgrace that the entire post match ceremony was in Spanish.‘You can bet your ass that if we were in Mexico City, it wouldn’t be all in English.‘It never ceases to amaze me all that stuff.’Tempering his comments, the ex-Manchester United keeper added: ‘It was a good crowd today.‘They were up for it, doing the wave, it was what we expected. We know it’s going to be like this.’Speaking to the LA Times, Mexican supporter Victor Sanchez said: ‘I love this country, it has given me everything that I have, and I’m proud to be part of it.’The 37-year-old Monrovia resident reflected the sentiment of most of the 93,000 strong crowd when he added: ‘But yet, I didn’t have a choice to come here, I was born in Mexico, and that is where my heart will always be.’Despite the remarkable support for the Mexican side, head coach of the U.S. team Bob Bradley told reporters after the game his team was expecting the hostile crowd.‘Obviously … the support that Mexico has on the night like tonight makes it a home game for them.‘It’s part of something we have to deal with on the night.’Speaking to the Times, American fan Roy Martinez was one of the few supporters present actually supporting the U.S.He said: ‘I know, it’s strange, and when we got here, we were a little worried.Wrapped in an American flag he led USA cheers outside the stadium, trying to gee up the home side.The game came after it emerged this week ethnic minorities now make up the majority of babies in the United States.It is the first time that this has been the case and the change reflects a growing age divide between mostly white, older Americans and predominantly minority youths that could reshape government policies.Preliminary census estimates also show the share of African-American households headed by women–made up of mostly single mothers–now exceeds African-American households with married couples, a sign of declining U.S. marriages overall but also continuing challenges for black youths without involved fathers.The findings, based on the latest government data, offer a preview of final 2010 census results being released this summer that provide detailed breakdowns by age, race and householder relationships such as same-sex couples.Demographers say the numbers provide the clearest confirmation yet of a changing social order, one in which racial and ethnic minorities will become the U.S. majority by the middle of the century.Currently, non-Hispanic whites make up just under half of all three-year-olds, which is the youngest age group shown in the Census Bureau’s October 2009 annual survey, its most recent.In 1990, more than 60 per cent of children in that age group were white.Long after the game finished Mexico supporters remained, bouncing up and down as they chanted and cheered for their team.The American’s were not even spared in the trophy ceremony after Mexico’s 4-2 win–booed for one final time as they were announced as runners up.Speaking after the game, another fan summed up the mood for many American-Mexican fans.He said: ‘We’re not booing the country, we’re booing the team.‘There is a big difference.’
    Bill Plaschke, Los Angeles Times, June 25, 2011It was imperfectly odd. It was strangely unsettling. It was uniquely American.On a balmy early Saturday summer evening, the U.S soccer team played for a prestigious championship in a U.S. stadium … and was smothered in boos.Its fans were vastly outnumbered. Its goalkeeper was bathed in a chanted obscenity. Even its national anthem was filled with the blowing of air horns and bouncing of beach balls.Most of these hostile visitors didn’t live in another country. Most, in fact, were not visitors at all, many of them being U.S. residents whose lives are here but whose sporting souls remain elsewhere.{snip}Even when the U.S. scored the first two goals, the Mexico cheers stayed strong, perhaps inspiring El Tri to four consecutive goals against a U.S. team that seemed dazed and confused. Then when it ended, and the Mexican players had danced across the center of the field in giddy wonder while the U.S. players had staggered to the sidelines in disillusionment, the madness continued.Because nobody left. Rather amazingly, the Mexico fans kept bouncing and cheering under headbands and sombreros, nobody moving an inch, the giant Rose Bowl jammed for a postgame trophy ceremony for perhaps the first time in its history.And, yes, when the U.S. team was announced one final time, it was once again booed.{snip}“I know, it’s strange, and when we got here, we were a little worried,” said Roy Martinez, a U.S. fan who wrapped himself in an American flag and led “USA” cheers to passing cars outside the stadium before the game. “But, you know, it works.”It was truly strange but, in the end, it indeed worked, perhaps because there is pride in living in one of the only countries where it could work.How many places are so diverse that it could fill football stadiums with folks whose roots are somewhere else? How many places offer such a freedom of speech that someone can display an American flag on their porch one day and cheer against the flag the next?I hated it, but I loved it. I was felt as if I was in a strange place, and yet I felt right at home.{snip}Original Article

    It’s only a matter of time before the left links the 4th of July with racism.  A NYC news station reported that there may be a medication for “racism”.  Will everyone here one day be force-fed propanolol for their “racist” feeling?!  

    • Bon, From the Land of Babble

      It’ll be put in the water, no doubt.

      All White holidays are being systematically replaced with non-White Birthdays, Remembrances, etc.   Parts of historic Sunset Blvd. in Los Angeles are now known as Cesar Chavez Blvd.  Mexican flags fly everywhere here, Spanish is the new patois, English not understood or welcome.

      We’ve already lost Lincoln’s and Washington’s B’days — they’ve been rolled into the all-purpose generic “President’s Day.

      “Easter Vacation is now Spring Break.

      Christmas Vacation is known as Winter Break.

      We go all out in the schools for MLK and now, for the first year, Cesar Chavez Day is a school-off holiday in my school district.  Chinese New Year is coming on strong and the Armenians are demanding that their Holocaust be included in the state mandated curricula at all levels.

      But keep the EBT cards and cell phones fully loaded, the gas money coming and the Section 8 dollars flowing — otherwise, we riot!!

      My answer: Bring it on!!  California and the U.S. are inevitably headed in that direction so why wait?

    Comanches controlled most of that territory. The emxicans were probably laughing among themselves as they thought they were giving us a lemon.  

  • JackKrak

    I’ll just go ahead and assume the school officials involved wouldn’t be quite so “disturbed” by any expression of Mexican pride at a football game. In fact, I’m sure they would be thrilled at the “diversity” it would bring to a stuffy old white American game.

    What the media won’t report:From KSAT facebook:

    I am a current student at Alamo Heights, and I would like to discuss the story on how Alamo Heights chanting “USA” is racist. You forgot to explain in your news story that Edison chanted “Alamo Whites.” It seems odd that you only told half of the story of what actually happened. Edison also made a rude remark about one of our paralyzed students, Eddie Moreno, calling him “retarded.” We are not the only ones guilty in the matter of racism. I think you need to air another story showing the other half of the story. It would be much appreciated by the Alamo Heights community and school system.

    Don’t expect to hear the other side of the story, that doesn’t fit in with the SlutMedia’s anti-White playbook.

    Video here. From that: “the students who did the chant have to apologize and have been banned from the state’s title games”

    Bon

  • bluffcreek1967

    Yep. It is amazing how far our country has fallen when students have to apologize for chanting, “USA!” I hope I’m wrong, but I think it’s too late to restore our nation to what it once was.

  • The shrill cry of “racism” and its corollary  “anti-racism” is code for ANTI-WHITE.

  • MissBonnie123

    Great counterargument against the Mexcians’ incessant rants that this is their land.

    I’m not sure but, after we won the war, didn’t we pay them 15 Million dollars for the land they lost? If this is the case, we more than paid them back and we owe them nothing!

  • MissBonnie123

    No, of course not. However, it was White people who founded and established the United States and by extension, when White people chant “USA,” they are really acknowledging the heritage and culture that they created. The Mexicans are protesting against White people’s heritage and culture.

  • This is unfortunate because if you took a poll of who had more family
    members serving in the US Military I could almost guarantee it would be
    those on the Edison side of the arena but they look Brown and a lot of
    them speak Spanish which makes them an easy target.

    I don’t equate military service with real patriotism.  If we get into a conflagration with Mexico, most of those “Hispanic patriots” for whom you seem to have sympathy because  the Pentagon is signing their paychecks and gave them camos to wear will side with Mexico.

    That was one of the themes in Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire — As the Roman military became less Roman and more German, when the real Germanics invaded, the “Roman” military joined in.

  • MissBonnie123

    You have the right to your opinion.

    However,  I would like to say that the heart of the matter is that we White Americans ARE losing our right to free speech because of diversity in our country.  I have noticed that when we say anything positive about our people, culture, heritage, etc. we are labeled as racist and xenophobic. This is done to terrorize us so that we will edit everything we think and say.

    I am sure that there are many Mexicans at Edison High School who are anti-American(i.e. anti-White). I know this because I live in a state heavily populated by Mexicans. They tell us White folk to “go back to Europe” and that “we(Mexicans) didn’t cross the border, the border crossed us.” Many just can’t wait to get into a conflict with White Americans.

    I am proud of my country, the heritage, and culture that White people created. I believe that we should continue to have free speech and I will never apologize for being White.

  • I’m reading a fair amount of excuseology around Ye Olde Internets about how “U-S-A” was a coded racial slur.  Even if you want to believe that, don’t forget, as Bon said below, the other side was hurling racial taunts.

    I’m also getting tired of this Alamo Heights being described as “rich and white” and Edison being described as “working class.”  Translated into English, what that means is that Alamo Heights is full of white people that work for a living and for salaries that put them into the top tax bracket, and Edison is full of people who have earned income tax credit-collecting menial jobs and welfare dependents.  Viva the tax money that people in Alamo Heights mostly provide.

  • Impertinent

    Look folks…we read this bullshit every day…..the real point is…..what…when are we going to resist and do something about it?

    How long are we going to accept second class citizenship? How long are we going to accept 3rd world trash….driving our countries future?

    How long are we going to live with illegals and the scum that’s allowed to cross our borders?

    How long..or what will it take to wage war against the commie scum that are now killing our country?

  • Laurencealmand

    Why do we separate Hispanics from other white Europeans, since both Spain and Portugal are also part of Caucasian Europe?   The vast majority of  Hispanic people are partly or wholly of Spanish or Portugese descent, therefore they are White Europeans also.    What is the purpose of this separate categorization?

  • Illegal invaders from Mexico are not “Americans” and never will be, no matter how long they squat on our soil illegally! Besides, I’m sure those students from Edison waive their beloved rag of Mexico and subscribe to the La Raza credence at every chance.
    The USA chants were not only appropriate, but also appreciated! The only people who could possibly be upset with such a chant are those who are not American citizens.

  • Dave4088

    You’ve got to be kidding me.  Now chanting USA is a racist taunt?   Methinks there is a little more to this story and I’m guessing that the kids from Edison high were probably displaying Mexican flags and pride in their heritage which is an affront to all red blooded Americans and rightfully so. 

    From now on Alamo Heights students should don sombreros and play mariachi music at basketball games as a show of supplication to the Mexicans and their white liberal lick spittles who are conquering Texas. 

  • Dave4088

    Sounds like you should be an honorary member of La Raza.  The fact is that most Mexicans display the flag of Mexico in their neighborhoods and on their cars, refuse to speak our language, disparage “Anglo” culture and thumb their brown noses at our history. 

    The majority see themselves not as Americans but as Mexicans living in (and colonizing) America and with a passionate attachment to Mexico.  Once they acquire political power they will have no compunction about taking everything you own by naked force.  That you see things from their perspective and your bleeds for them will make no difference.  You are a gringo and they don’t like you. 

    They do not deserve an ounce of our sympathy and if you truly are white then you need to do some soul searching over the next few days.

    I also stand up to these liberal anti-white professors.  I had one that blamed black incarceration rates on racism while everytime badgering white males everytime we talked about racial issues or civil rights issues or ripping on republicans,etc.  I finally had enough and one day I said, “Black males commit more violent crimes than white males.  Simple.”  I also pointed out in class in front of everyone that black males are imprisoned at much higher rates today than they were before the 1960s.  She stopped bringing up issues like that in class when I was around.   Nowadays, if I went back to school, I’m afraid I’m be so mean tearing into these liberal professors that I’d make them cry.
