American Flags Ripped Down Day Before Turlock Fourth Of July Parade

CBS Sacramento, July 4, 2013

A stunning act of vandalism right before the Fourth of July had Turlock [California] residents and workers scrambling to fix American flags.


Vandals damaged about a dozen flags put up in downtown for Turlock’s big parade, jumping to pull the stars and stripes down with their weight, severely bending the poles.

The flags drooped down nearly to the sidewalk. If we’re talking money, it’s about $500 worthe of damage. But of course, we’re talking about the flag, so it goes deeper than that.

“For just no other reason that we can figure out, other than just for kicks,” said Dana McGarry with the Turlock Downtown Property Owners Association. “There’s just something wrong about it. What kind of people do that? I don’t know.”

Sadly, it’s happened several times before here. In year’s past, someone stole the flags and poles. This time the poles were screwed into place, but even that wasn’t enough.

The display lasted less than 24 hours.

    “What kind of people do that? I don’t know.”


    I do, and I’m not even American – Mestizo scum who jump the fence with dreams of La Reconquista . What’s so hard to understand?

  • Puggg

    But they’re only here to do the desecration of American flags that Americans won’t do.

    • Spartacus

      One of those jobs Americans just won’t do, right ? Just like gang-rape, selling drugs,driving while being drunk or stoned….


      • Jefferson

        Bantus are the only Americans who still do those “jobs”. But White American youths have not gang banged since prohibition/the great depression.

        So Hispanics gang bangers have to be brought to do the criminal “jobs” that White Americans will no longer do.

        • Tim_in_Indiana

          Your history is a little mixed up. If you’re talking about gangsters like Al Capone and Dillinger during Prohibition/the Great Depression, then they weren’t exactly “youths” — Dillinger in his heyday was 33 — nor should they be confused with modern-day “gang-bangers.” White youth gangs were fairly well-known and common in the ’50s and ’60s (ala “West Side Story”) but never to the extent that blacks and hispanics are known for gang-banging today.

          • Jefferson

            And how does that disprove my statement that Hispanics are doing criminal “jobs” that White Americans are no longer willing to do ?

            Last time I checked, in 2013 there is no White version of MS-13 and Los Zetas Cartel in the U.S.

    Imagine what would happen to Americans who did something like this in a Latin American country? Their heads would be on pikes within hours. But in the USSA, it’s just another vibrant expression of diversity and the glorious multiculturalism that awaits us all. Think this isn’t coming to your red state town? They want it everywhere, in every White community, city, country.

    We have nowhere left to run, brothers and sisters. Our backs are to the wall.

    • Spartacus

      “We have nowhere left to run, brothers and sisters. Our backs are to the wall.”


      Stop running, start shooting.

    • Why would anybody’s head be on pikes? Maybe, unlike the Americans they aren’t yellow enough to give away their nation?! Which brings up a point – why do Americans need a flag, they don’t even care about the genocide of their own race.

  • We have the Stars & Bars flying. No greaser or libtard has the stones to pull that one down.

      A libtard will hire a lawyer to have it pulled down.

      Deo vindice! Here in gettysburg watching people caryying both flags hug each other, Im very happy! I would give anything to take back all the intra racial warfare of the last couple hundred years.

      • I would like to see a NEW flag, for our times. It should represent white racial loyalty above all else.

        • How about the Gadsen Flag?

          • A nice flag but it is all ready in use. The new one would need to be something that can be accepted by Europeans as well.

          • Wethepeople

            Look up
            Saga-Black Bannered Legion

            That’s a flag I could rally under.

  • Homo_Occidentalis

    The display lasted less than 24 hours.

    The invaders wasted little time. This story just goes to prove that there is only one race that has ever had any interest in preserving America, and thus deserving of the name “Americans”. All who frequent this site know very well of which race I speak.

  • IstvanIN

    I saw this earlier this week. It wasn’t this shoeless nit-wit running around in his underwear and needing a haircut. It was a mestizo, I have no doubt about that.

  • IstvanIN

    The Soviets took down the Imperial Russian flag and replaced it with their own. They blew up the swastikas in Berlin when they invaded. That is what winners in a war do, they take down the flags, and other paraphernalia, of the land they have just conquered. They kill the males and rape the women. They displace those can not kill. This behavior has been going on forever. We are just not used to seeing it here.

      The mosque’s tower point is said by Muslims to be the “tip of the jihad conquest sword.”

        That’s why they wanted a mosque so close to where the Towers fell. Community center, my a**.

    American flag? It no longer represents Whites who created this country. It now represents a Star Wars Bar nation–a Detroit of the soul–in which Whites are expected to give their lives for flag and country to protect what? Blacks attacking Whites at will all around this nation?

    Give me a meaningful flag that represents my particularist ethics and not the universalist ethics that the Stars and Bars has come to represent. Give me a flag that is one with my White DNA code and which is not one with any other DNA code.

    • Ngati Pakeha

      What about this one? Blacks absolutely hate it.

      • QuinnTheEskimo9

        I have NO idea what that flag represents or stands for.

        What do blacks think it is and why are they afraid of it?

        If it is indeed anti-black and they are afraid of it, we need to spread the word and start flying that flag everywhere.

        • Ngati Pakeha

          Sorry, it is the pre 1994 flag of South Africa. Much better times. It was a time when Bantu were told how to behave. The Police of the time make Bull O’Conner’s lot look like a bunch of guidance counsellors. Get to know the history of South Africa QuinnTheEskimo9. Why bother you might ask? Because it will become the template of Western civilisation, yes the US especially, if we do not take active countermeasures. In answer to your second question – blacks hate it because it represented a time when they had to take a place on the totem pole which reflected their inferiority – at the bottom.

  • haroldcrews

    You can’t desecrate a symbol of a social construct. That’s all ‘America’ is. It isn’t race or ethnicity. It isn’t a particularly religion; not in the conventional sense at least. Considering the amount of immigration the last several decades it isn’t even a common language, history or culture any more. It’s no more than a set of vague social and political propositions whose meanings depend upon whom you ask and when you ask them. Paradoxically its advocates hold those propositions out to be universal any way. ‘America’ isn’t real. It isn’t a nation.

    • QuinnTheEskimo9

      This only applies to white Americans, Harold, and this has been forced on us.
      PRs, Mexicans, Asians are encouraged to embrace their culture which we whites are forced to “celebrate” too. Their flags are flown everywhere in America, and their holidays and culture are overriding ours, which we keep being told is evil. I saw where 4th of July celebrations are being canceled at military bases and no fly overs for military graduations due to the sequester, yet ObaMAO can find 100 million dollars to go to Africa and then pledge 7b (with a B) to Africans for an electrical grid.

      This is nothing but terrorism against the white race.

      Funny how we white “social constructs” don’t exist to the lefties, but theses hypocrites suddenly have NO trouble identifying who is or isn’t white when it comes to AA, welfare, quotas, college entrances, etc.

  • Dave4088

    As I’ve always said we are being conquered and colonized. This is what conquerors and colonizers do to and in the lands they’ve entered. BTW, Turlock is 36.4% mestizo, so you get one guess on the race of the perps.

    • Bon, From the Land of Babble


      I looked up the demographics and you are correct. I would have guessed Turlock to be 99% Mexican with unemployment hovering around 25% — like other cities in the San Joaquin Valley.

      My grandparents lived in nearby Patterson which is nearly ALL Mexican now; the small town my mother grew up in as well — it is covered in graffiti, garbage is strewn everywhere, the only markets are run-down bodegas the school looks like a federal prison. Those little towns are horrible now and I rarely stop when I drive up the 5 or the 99, I just can’t stand it.

      Victor David Hanson explains it well in his book Mexifornia and article “Two Californias.” I’m glad my grandparents are no longer here to see what has become of California’s Central Valley.


      • Dave4088

        Some towns in Iowa are having the same problem. Formerly peaceful, bucolic and serene (read: all white) towns are now in some cases 18% mestizo. Time magazine ran a couple of very good articles on this in 1995-96 when the demographic change was then in its infancy and before they went totally cultural Marxist.

        Per the Time articles one Iowa town suffered three drug or gang related murders in one year whereas prior to this outbreak the town hadn’t had a murder in 47 years. People were could not let their kids out after 5-6pm and began installing steel doors and bars on windows.

        This is what mestizos do to white nations. Again, you’ll never find this kind of honesty from the MSM again.

      • mobilebay

        Bon…and they want us to believe that there are only 11 million illegal aliens in this country? Sounds like that many in California alone! Off topic – I spent an hour or so of Independence Day having a “rousing” discussion with a young relative on illegal immigration (she is pro-illegal). We stopped as our hostess, my youngest daughter seemed very uncomfortable. Seems I’m the only one in the family who is a race realist. I got such a canned argument from the young woman, I knew it was useless to try to change her mind. It will be her little girls who’ll really pay for this tragedy.

        • ms_anthro

          Ask her how she’ll feel when those vibrant cholos she wants to keep importing drug and rape her little girls. Or how she’ll feel when her girls bring some neck-tattooed gangbanger home. Even if her girls marry a middle class respectable mestizo (they do exist), her grandchildren will look nothing like her or even like their White mothers. Her White bloodline will end with her children’s generation. Is that really what she wants?

          Putting it into real terms like that can sometimes be the wakeup call multicultists need to start allowing themselves to have wrongthoughts about race.

  • itdoesnotmatter

    I wonder if Soetero will lead an American flag burning in D.C. today. Or is he still in Africa?

  • Lakeview Senior

    I don’t think too many Latinos in general honor the American flag. Having worked with a Puerto Rican and hearing him complain about the USA every day, I asked him why he didn’t move to his island home. He said there just weren’t jobs there. He makes $78,000 per year working for the Chicago Health Department now. These Hispanics have no use for our culture, traditions, etc. You hardly see any White males working for the City of Chicago or the State of Illinois now. Our current mayor is a Jew and he is 100% for Affirmative Action as was the former mayor, Richard M. Daley. You can walk around Chicago’s neighborhoods and you hardly see any American flags flying. The country is going to the dogs.

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    Reminds me of a story from back in April:

    A judge sentenced a man to 18 months probation this morning, and ordered him to pay $500 in fines for cutting down American flags from outside several businesses in Huntsville earlier this week.

    Mihn Van Pham, 44, pleaded guilty to charges of criminal mischief in the third degree and resisting arrest in Huntsville municipal court this morning.

    ’I’m guilty, God bless America,’ Pham said.

    This Pham should be sent back to whatever hole he crawled out of!

    As for Turlock: When the bastards who did this are caught, they should be hanged in the place of the flags that were desecrated.

    “if anyone attempts to haul down the American flag, shoot him on the spot.”

    –Secretary John Dix

    As in the story above, the punishment will be a slap on the wrist. If, however, they were obama flags that were desecrated, well THAT is a different story; desecration of one of THOSE is a felony with punishment of hard time and punitive fines!!

    In light of the 4th of July and it being a national holiday and all, I won’t post an image of the obama flag, don’t want to ruin anyone’s picnic or dinner — but I have it standing by in case anyone pushes me tonight…

    Happy 4th to All!!


    • I suspect ethnically Pham is Vietnamese. Sine the war there has been over since 1975, perhaps perhaps he should leave. The one down-side is that the 18 months’ probation makes the case a felony, which means Vietnam probably won’t take him back.

    • Dave4088

      If Mexican flags were torn down before Cinco De Mayo it would be national news, MSNBC would be blaming “rednecks” and “white trash” and Enrique “My People” Holder would launch a civil rights and hate crimes investigation.

      Such is life in Obongo’s Amerika. You know, change you can believe in.

  • JDInSanDiego

    Let’s also not call ourselves by the media’s newest pc term: non-hispanic white. I’m white and that’s it.

    I don’t want to be identified by what I’m “not” anymore than a Mexican wants to be called a non-Chinese hispanic or non-muslim latino or a non-civilized homo sapiens.

  • Imagine the outrage if Mexican flags were torn down before any Mexican parade.
    Imagine the outrage if Puerto Rican flags were torn down before any Puerto Rican parade.
    Imagine the outrage if African flags were torn down before any black parade.

    Now imagine the outrage about this. Of if this was done to a German, Polish, Irish, Italian, Greek, etc parade. There would be none.

    Europeans = Americans (or should that be Americans = Europeans) and officials care nothing for us no matter how much they might seem to pander some special interest groups.

    • Bon, From the Land of Babble

      Imagine the outrage if these were rainbow flags put up for a gay pride parade!!

      The FBI would be rousting every straight White male within 50 miles of those flags with obama himself calling the gay leaders — swearing the perps will be caught and punished…


      • Gays would be blowing sphincters left and right.

        Mayor Slay of SL kissed a tranny’s hand during their parade. I don’t doubt Rahm stopped at Man’s Country” (he and Obama’s favorite bathhouse) after Chicago’s.

        OT: Chicago’s fireworks just ended and I just heard my first siren in a couple of hours. Three dead last night, plus 12 shot, the fun begins now. Going to be a good weekend.

        • Evette Coutier

          I’ll need at least a week to get that visual out of my head.

        • Bon, From the Land of Babble

          Imagine finding yourself, through no fault of your own, in the San Francisco area during Gay Pride weekend!!

          Sirens? I live in Los Angeles where sirens are part of the everyday background noise –helicopters too. I’ve gotten so used to it that I don’t even notice. At the ghetto school I worked at, I often heard shots fired, including from automatic weapons.

          But, I think your city is far worse and more dangerous than mine, blacks much worse than Hispanics.

          Stay safe, friend. Fireworks are just starting here — the danger is out of control wildfires, we are in an entrenched drought, everything here is dry as a bone and the winds are starting up…


          • It’s been 100 degrees in the southwest for two weeks …. let’s shoot off some fireworks. Genius.

            I called 911 yesterday at around 4:30 because I heard a gunshot on the next street over (I can tell the difference between a gunshot and a firecracker, and plus it was raining). The black 911 operator’s response when I said it was not something that happens where I live: “Well we are the murder capital of the world”.

    • saxonsun

      Here in NYC, we’re treated to the PR parade every June–PR flags everywhere. A nightmare.

  • fuzzypook

    I am an American. Norwegian and Swedish decent. What should I do? Describe myself as “Northern European American”? Swedish American? Norwegian
    American? No. I am American and I am white. I understand that “yt” is
    rather insulting considering that it is used as a pejorative against
    whites by blacks, but really, what other alternative do we have? We
    don’t seem to have an all encompassing term for who we are that is
    honorable and acceptable to ourselves. I am open for suggestions.

    • American is good enough. America is the location in which you live. America did not exist until whites came here and brought it into existence. All of the “others” are only pretenders.

  • HJ11

    Any flag is just a symbol. Any flag that I accept has to be one with Whites and with no others, and it doesn’t have to represent any piece of land. Again, it has to represent Whites. Our nation is within us no matter where we are born.

    Maybe this is a time when we will wander, carrying our nation with us as we go. And as we wander, perhaps we will start realizing that we are a distinct and unique people unlike any other peoples. And, in realizing this, perhaps we will strengthen our sense of identity which now is too weak and which lacks focus and makes us easy targets for non-Whites.

    And maybe we will eventually find a land that we can make ours alone, and maybe this time we won’t make the mistakes we now make on a daily basis and maybe we will grow strong as a people again and breed to our maximum, and maybe we will reject the evil miscegenationists and weak seeds among us so that they will in time pass away and be a bad memory while we go on into the future.

  • fuzzypook

    Human nature is what it is. Populations have been moving and changing throughout human history. Smart, successful peoples build successful societies. What has happened to our “societies” today is not unprecedented in human history. Elites take advantage of the poor and middle class.

      The bantering back and forth and private conversations clutter up the threads. I don’t blame the moderator for deleting those posts. I’ve had some banter deleted too.

      I’ve seen this type of system on other forums.

  • Dibblah

    If you have no allegiance to the flag and country that you are in then you are an invader or at best a guest who should be on their best behaviour.

    The whole irony of this is that if Mexico or central America was so great, why are they fence-jumping as illegals to get away from thier countries of birth? Moreover why should America have to fund said exodus with welfare and entertain their bullshit sentamentalism of their failed native countries?

    To tear down the stars and bars on the 4th is a massive disrespect to their “host” country and these people should be hounded down and kicked the hell out of the US.


  • Greg_Deane

    I think it’s way passed time that Whites should start getting “offended”. This has been the “cause celebre” for every other ethnic (non-white) race in the world to have a go at YT for?
    This is a real case where national white outrage should prevail and cause a big stink; partucularly whilst congress is considering amnesty for these invaders.

    I’m afraid the only thing that will penetrate the heads of stupid white liberals is to see some iconic monuments that they care deeply about getting defaced. And it will be only a matter of time. After all, our history and culture mean little or nothing to these invaders.

  • fuzzypook

    But you didn’t answer my question. If “YT” is not acceptable then what is? I personally don’t have a problem with it, unless spoken by a hostile black. But some white people seem to be offended.

Whomever was the REAL mastermind would not have been able to pull it off without the toxic “religion of peace” to use as an enticement to would-be martyrs. It’s time to stop muslim incursion into this country, and to seriously investigate the organizations of those already here. If there is a scintilla of evidence that radicalization is taking place, they must go! This MUST include mosques, and the imams who run them. I never thought I’d say this, but maybe it’s time for a state religion, and I don’t mean Islam or Judaism. I’m agnostic myself, so I’m not pushing a personal agenda.

    • ms_anthro

      The hysteria in your post is a giveaway, “Jane.” The only person talking about pogroms and camps and holocausts is you. All Tucker provided was two references to information that many may not have seen. How about responding to his actual post instead of attacking a straw man of your own creation? Oy vey!

      • jane johnson

        Ok. I was using hyperbole to acknowledge that there are many powerful Zionists in this country who most likely have, at best, divided loyalties (Michael Chertoff and his scanners immediately come to mind). There are plenty of books, websites, etc. that make the same points as the items Tucker referenced, and I’m not dismissing any of them out of hand. It’s just that nothing I’ve read suggests anything plausible that we as citizens can do to either punish the guilty, or to prevent the “usual suspects” from doing similar damage in future. The holocaust reference was sarcasm, not a suggestion

  • ms_anthro

    Multicult insanity dictates that human culture and prosperity are really just due to a trick of geography. America is a (formerly) great place to live because it’s America, not because it was founded and is maintained by the efforts and treasure of Americans.

    Where there are Mexicans, there is Mexico. Where there are Africans, we find Africa. This basic, simple truth is too radioactive for most people to say out loud. We’re supposed to pretend that people will come to America or other White Western countries and magically shed the very essence of who they are. Such a ludicrous belief is utter madness and must be confronted at every opportunity.

    • QuinnTheEskimo9

      Your first sentence refers to the work of Jared Diamond who clings to the notion that great civilizations happen merely by accident and location, nothing more. Otherwise we are all equal in every way, a bantu could be exchanged with a Norwegian and there would be no difference in culture whatsoever, all of it is due to the WEATHER.

      • ms_anthro

        Yes, natural selection works on every aspect of all life on Earth except, according to the multicultists, human intelligence and temperament. Those are immune to any sort of selective pressures or evolutionary divergences. We are all born the same (except when they say we aren’t and implement genocidal anti-White policies).

  • Wethepeople

    A term is only derogatory if you allow it to be so. I.e. the term ‘n—–‘ is still used because it offends blacks and they allow it to bother them. There is nothing offensive about being called ‘YT’ It is our color and it is something to be proud of. I am White, I’m a whitey, I AM YT. I embrace any of these names because I know what I am, and I will die defending what I am; however, I will not take offense when some Bantu or mestizo labels me as I am.

  • DiversityIsDeath

    USA is now a corrupt third world ZOG, so why should I care anymore if it
    is disrespected or its flag desecrated? Why should fed up Whites like
    us continue to be patriotic to a nation that has betrayed us? Pfft.
    America is no longer a traditional, predominantly White Euro Christian
    nation worth defending. If they give a damn, let the leftists
    powers who hijacked America worry about their “transformed America”
    being spit on.

  • Wethepeople

    I suggest this flag –

    Raise the flag of solid black
    to keep the memory alive
    Of black clad legions
    who fought and died for our folk in ’45
    Black is the colour of mourming for the martyrs of Vinland too
    Matthew and Kirk and Singer and Rockwell and Kahl stood true

    Raise the flag of destiny
    as black as the wing of a raven
    And change it not nor raise another
    ’til we have a folkish haven
    Raise the flag of destiny
    the flag of destiny

    Black is the colour of midnight which
    the tyrant shall learn to dread
    As we honour fallen martyrs with steal and fire and lead
    The ancient Aryan Symbol is also drawn in black
    so underneath that colour
    we will take our Nations back

    Raise the flag of destiny
    as black as the wing of a raven
    And change it not nor raise another
    ’til we have a folkish haven
    Raise the flag of destiny

    And when we have that land of our own
    then on that holy ground
    we’ll plant our flag of raven black
    upon a scared mound

    Raise the flag of destiny
    as black as the wing of a raven
    And change it not nor raise another
    ’til we have a folkish haven
    Raise the flag of destiny
    Raise the flag of destiny
    as black as the wing of a raven
    And change it not nor raise another
    ’til we have a folkish haven
    Raise the flag of destiny

    • A black flag would look too much like the Al-Qaida flag, and I wouldn’t want to be mistaken for someone else. A black flag with some emblem upon it, perhaps?

    It reminds me of the Los Angeles portrayed in the movie Falling Down with Michael Douglas. That was back in the early 90’s though. It’s at least twice as bad nowadays.

    California is known as the land of fruits and nuts!

    I see the point your making and yes the American flag and all that America stands for, has been stretched thin and threadbare.
    It has been used and abused in the name of liberty to fight wars that young, patriotic Americans should not be dying in.- Nor their target “enemy”.
    (I have a blanket from the 70’s I got from the PX that has the Liberty bell on it with the crack).
    When I was serving I held dear that blanket (-just me, but that represented freedom for me) and what it meant and that America would be the guiding light for all law-abiding free peoples of this Earth.
    -How desperately I was conned. All of us patriots who signed up, trained and served, (I was never going to do anything else) eventually just looked at each other and we couldn’t say a word. It was horrible. It was like all you’ve ever believed and trusted in just ends up shafting you and putting friends into bodybags who wern’t so lucky.
    Loosing the will to live and the love-of-country at the same time is a horrible space. I don’t wish it it on anyone.
    Ladies and Gents that is still the case. We cannot give up the dream that founded this great nation. Don’t let them do it and be strong. We must think of our ancestors, like the founding Fathers did when they wrote the constitution.
    Give us back America founded on the Constitution. Let my uncles, aunts, nephews and Neices have a country who’s ideals and Constitution are sacrosanct.
    -Nothing less will do.

  • I think we became involved in Vietnam because someone decided that a fourth-rate agricultural dump that stank of fresh poop was somehow vital to American interests.

  • Dixie played on a banjo does that for me.

    Partially. Puerto Ricans vs. Polish-Americans.


    You don’t have any idea of who would tear down and desecrate the American flag? Really, no clue eh?
