Pro-Amnesty Crowd Burns American Flag at Murrieta on 4th of July

Michelle Moons, Breitbart, July 4, 2014

An American flag has reportedly been burned by pro-amnesty protesters near the Murrieta Border Patrol station on America’s Independence Day.


Breitbart News obtained the above photograph, which shows a burnt flag on the ground, from an anti-illegal immigration activist who was monitoring the pro-amnesty demonstration.

Opponents of illegal immigration had gathered in Murrieta to stop Friday’s planned transfer of Central American illegal aliens, as they did earlier this week. A pro-amnesty counter-demonstration was organized in response.


In addition, Breitbart News obtained photographs of torn-up flags that pro-amnesty demonstrators had impaled on a fence.


Bonnie Lewis, an anti-illegal immigration activist, told Breitbart News that she saw one of the pro-amnesty activists dragging an American flag on the ground.

“I said: ‘Hey, don’t do that.’ He said: ‘That’s where it belongs,'” she said.

    Burning the American flag is so stupid. It angers the people protesters should try to appeal to.

    • Sharps Rifle

      The only people the “protesters” appeal to are other traitors, so torching the flag makes sense to them. It also shows what they truly think about this country.

      • propagandaoftruth

        They should go back to Mexico. Oh, guess they’re kinda already there…
        Keep up the good fight Murrieta. This is getting good.

      • Sick of it

        Considering that so many of them are not American citizens, that others were only made citizens through the magic of birthright citizenship, etc., this should be a surprise to no one. They identify with their own people, as we should.

        • M.Magog

          Correct, a nation is a people, not a proposition.

      • It actually worked. I am now completely convinced they should be killed even in their own nations.

        • M.Magog

          Filling those detention centers with an inert gas would be a good start.

          • Why inert? As little love as I have for the US government, if someone comes here and burns the flag, inert gas is too good for them.

            Why not just a little phosgene? This causes fatal pulmonary edema, so one drowns in one’s own lungs. Triple nitrogen mustard causes the lungs to become charred inside, and you die coughing up the pieces. With nerve gas, one goes “sludding”, which means salivation, lacrymation, urination and defecation, thus “slud”. If people had wings, they’d finish up buzzing around on their backs like flies. I got a good dose of gaseous HCl once and ammonia twice while doing laboratory work. That wasn’t any fun.

            Inert gas is too good for these bipedal vermin.

    • D.B. Cooper

      Since when does the illegal alien have to be afraid of us? NOTHING is going to be done to stop them. They have nothing to worry about. You will be voting for a republican who is going to run on catch phrases like, “guest worker program”, “reaching out to minorities”, and “comprehensive reform”. Same horse manure I heard Bush, Perry, and the rest utter many years ago.

      • Sick of it

        John, by his own admission, will be voting for a Democrat. He voted for Obama.

    • WR_the_realist

      I’m happy to see the pro illegal immigrant protesters burn the American flag. It shows everyone whose side they’re on.

      • Conrad

        Some of the anti-immigration folks should have a demonstration & burn the Mexican flag.

        • Sick of it

          Even better – Burn down the facilities where the federales plan to house the Mexicans.

          • Ella

            I don’t understand why they cannot use tents!! If it is good enough to house hurricane victims temporarily and soldiers at war, it is the best place for any illegal to spend his days waiting for deportation. Of course, they can leave US if they don’t like the conditions.

          • Sick of it

            But Ella, that would be racist….and it would make sense. Both of which are good reasons for liberals to oppose the idea.

        • TruthBeTold

          I’d love to do that but it would be a PR nightmare for our side and only used as propaganda against us.

          You and I know how the left works. They will selectively show our people burning Mexican flags on the front page and conveniently leave out the burning of American flags.

      • Lt. Greyman, NVA

        You skin color will soon be your Uniform.

        • awb

          Your color IS your uniform in this eternal struggle.

    • Lt. Greyman, NVA

      They no longer are appealing, they are demanding. Like all other races, they sense weakness.

    • Tim_in_Indiana

      In a sane country, this would cause a massive backlash. Unfortunately, this is NOT a sane country.

    • Jesse_from_Sweden

      The irony of flag burnings is that you are supposed to burn a flag….

      According to United States Code found in Title 4, Chapter 1 pertaining to patriotic customs and observances:

      §8(k) The flag, when it is in such condition that it is no longer a
      fitting emblem for display, should be destroyed in a dignified way,
      preferably by burning.

      It is far worse to drag it on the ground for example….

    • daddio

      Can we burn the Mexican flag? But then we’d be as low as these cretins are.

  • Long Live Dixie

    The Mexicans are biting the hand that feeds them. That flag is their best friend.

    • TruthBeTold

      That flag is their gravy train.

    • Jesse_from_Sweden

      Third worlders are sold on the marxist lie of wealth distribution.

      Basically, marxisms basic tenets is that there is only a set amount of wealth, and therefore, for someone to get richer, someone else has to get poorer.
      That’s why marxism is all about wealth re-distribution, because the rich has only gotten rich by stealing their wealth from those that are now poor.
      And that also applies for countries.
      So third worlders get a boost to their confidence. It isn’t their fault that they and their country is poor, it’s the fault of USA and the western world, because they have stolen their wealth from them. (note how this thinking also applies to blacks in USA….as well as other “poor and oppressed” groups, that are all influenced by these marxist teachings.)

      That’s why they want US wealth, and the reason they hate USA at the same time.
      They don’t come to USA because USA is better, they come because they “want it back”.

      This is a big reason why marxism is such a large problem. And it’s counterproductive as well, since it keeps the poor and oppressed in their place. You don’t get rich by stealing from others, you get rich by working for your wealth.

      The basic tenet of marxism is just flat out wrong, there isn’t a set amount of wealth. Wealth is instead determined by production. The more you produce, the more wealth you have.
      That’s why the western world is rich, not because we have stolen anything, but because we produce lots of things. A worker in the west is many times as productive as one on the third world.
      A american farmer produces what? 100-1000 times more food than an african farmer?
      That’s how wealth is created.

      Something these third world marxist believers will never understand. Mainly becuase they don’t want to understand it, because that would give them a personal and individual responsibility for their situation. They are poor because they aren’t as productive, neither as a society or as individuals.
      Much better for your self-confidence to instead blame someone else.
      Which is why marxism is so prominent in these groups.

  • MekongDelta69

    I read about this yesterday.

    Gee whiz – I didn’t hear about this in the news.
    Wonder why not?

  • Truthseeker

    Well, this is one of the least surprising things I’ve ever read. Was there ever a doubt that these pro-illegal types hated the idea of Americans, real Americans, having sovereignty and self-determination?

      “La Raza Attempts to Intimidate Murrieta Illegal Immigration Protesters
      by Jodi Giddings on July 8, 2014

      In a scene reminiscent of the Pennsylvania polling places during the
      2008 presidential election, La Raza activists spent their late Monday
      afternoon attempting to intimidate illegal immigration protesters
      in Murrieta, the small California town that has become ground zero in
      the fight against the invasion of our nation by foreign citizens.”

      • TruthBeTold

        People need to be taking photos and video; preferably hidden camera video to catch these people acting as they really are.

  • ZB01

    It’s “good” that they burn the American flag because it wakes people up just to what they really think in their heart of hearts of the United States. At the same time, it also demonstrates the height of their stupidity: and yes, I’m saying they are stupid; as in, not intelligent: If the US flag and what it represents are so repulsive, then why the heck do you want to be here?

    • Einsatzgrenadier

      If the US flag and what it represents are so repulsive, then why the heck do you want to be here?

      The foreign invaders are here because the tyrants in Washington are giving them free job and welfare handouts, but only in exchange for their services as foot soldiers in the multicultural army of the plutocratic elites. The tyrants share the same hatred of the historic American nation as the protesters, which is why they have hired this nonwhite army to carry out their demographic revolution from above.

    • katzkiner

      Getting paid by DC for Reconquista baby. Just belligerant looters. A thief always has contempt for his victims. Can’t wait till the EBT cards bounce and the festivities began. Imagine 30 million Americans invading Mexico, you could smell dead gringo’s all the way to Kansas City. These invaders need a strong dose of buckshot.

  • Kenner

    Yesterday, CNN showed a young blonde woman supporting the illegals crying and repeating ‘Why the hate?! Why so much hate?!!’
    It was so absurd, I doubt it won over any new supporters.

    • Conrad

      It’s not hate. It’s just that our patients are exhausted. We’ve been walked on long enough.

    • Caucasoid88

      Wow. Why the hate? Why do people hate spam email? Because it isn’t wanted and brings nothing to the table.

  • Marc Zuckurburg

    The nerve of them.

    They forgot to invite me.

  • Frank_DeScushin

    This is insanity. I’ve said this before, but it can’t be said enough — At any other point in history these “refugees” would be considered invaders, and their “American” supporters would be considered a fifth column. Both groups would be dealt with harshly and quickly. The West ha lost its way.

    Meanwhile, Robert Mugabe just stripped whites of their land. Do you think he wasted a second worrying that he will be called racist?

  • The American flag is no longer my flag. I will burn one given the chance. It now stands for sodomy, Sharia law, tyranny, and white enslavement and extermination. Sodomy worship and Negro worship are the official state religion. They’re adding Mexican worship. Not my flag. Not my country. Screw this place. I won’t be sorry if Putin nukes it, frying me along with everyone else. Let the white Russians resettle the land and build something decent.
    The dumb Mexicans who burned that flag did so to insult white people and to show whites that they can do anything they want, with approval from the tyrants in DC. Sorry, you dumb Mexicans, but you do not insult me. You just insulted Obama! Good for you.
    You want to insult me. Burn the Confederate flag. But better not do it around me. I won’t stand there and take it. Consequences be damned.

    • Conrad

      I wouldn’t burn the flag but I would fly it either. Maybe one day, but not now.

    • Tim_in_Indiana

      I won’t be sorry if Putin nukes it, frying me along with everyone else.

      I think I detect not race realism in your comment, but misanthropy.

  • The tattered flags on the fence seem like a better image to promote our side. Our country is in tatters.

  • Alexandra1973

    Time to drop-kick them to Mexico and points south.

  • A Freespeechzone

    It’s high time that protesters burn all the flags of Mexico and Central America….then urinate on them….. Hey, it’s protected First Amendment….

    The illegal aiders started it…..time to be as vile and aggressive as they are…..which is how we got to this point in the first place.

    • Anglo

      Your are right. The time of being “nice” is over!!

  • Conrad

    I am returning to my Christian roots, but I can easily see that it is time for us to defend ourselves.

    • Sick of it

      “The best defense is a good offense”

  • RyanP

    Funny how they hate the very country that these immigrants are trying to get into. If America is truly that terrible why isn’t the flow of people going in the other direction.

    • IstvanIN

      It is common to trash the flag of the country you have invaded.

  • IKUredux

    So, this makes the whole exercise crystal clear. The people in this “nation”, who are pro amnesty do NOT identify with, or feel part of, this once proud country. This nation(so-called) is nothing more than a collection of zip codes of gullible Whites who are still STUPID enough to pay taxes and support this ever growing, never stopping deluge of human flotsam that will soon overwhelm us(U.S.).(Used to be the same thing). TPTB DO NOT care what happens to the historic American nation. In fact, all this is going according to plan. This country, the way it is now, would have been a freakin’ Monty Python skit not so long ago. The Ministry of Funny Walks of Angry Trannys for example. This country is a JOKE! SERIOUSLY, turning military bases into daycare centers for baby illegal alien invaders?

  • M.Magog

    Bonnie Lewis eh? Lewis, A common jewish surname, changed from Levits at Ellis Island to Lewis. I am sure the roster of these protesters is heavily jewish. I am sure that if you look who is funding the transport and housing of these protesters you’d find jewish groups. Just saying.

    • Tim_in_Indiana

      Are you sure or this or is this speculation?

      • Medizin

        Jerry Lewis is Jewish. Joseph Levitch.

        It is an English surname, but many Jews changed their names to mostly German and English.

        • M.Magog

          In my experience Lewis is a Jewish name more often than not. If your name was Lipschits wouldn’t you be tempted to change it to Lewis?

          • Medizin

            “Lewis is a Jewish name more often than not”.
            That may be true. My first experience was with several non-Jewish Lewis’s, English ancestry, in the state I lived at the time; therefore, I represent a different perspective.

    • IstvanIN

      A very sound speculation.

    • Adolf Verloc

      She is described as an “anti-illegal immigration activist” who spoke out to a “pro-amnesty activist dragging an American flag on the ground.” The wording is clumsy, but I think she was one of the demonstrators AGAINST the illegals.

      • M.Magog

        oops, you are right, I did not read that closely. I still suspect though that the pro amnesty crowd is funded b the usual suspects.

  • Ella

    Well. behaviors speak more loudly than words ever do.

  • Medizin

    I know the flag is offensive to some, but to me, it represents Europeans who settled here. We are burned, dragged on the ground, tattered and hung on the fence, left there to disintegrate in the upcoming storms. We continue to take it. If we had any self-worth at all, we would attack those desecrating it.

  • scutum

    We are constantly being told that these people are fleeing the horrible conditions in their home countries. How long have we been hearing about the terrible corruption and lawlessness in Mexico, Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador? Has it ocurred to anyone that the reason Mexico, Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador are, and have been in such terrible shape for so many years, is because they are full of Mexicans, Hondurans, Guatemalans and El Salvdorans?

  • scutum

    Please Note: I agree with begone4. This is no longer my flag or my country. As a veteran my fondest hope is that military recruiting of whites who make up most of the elite units drops to zero or close to zero. Any European American who would fight for this government has either not been paying attention to what has ocurred here over the last 50 years, or they are delusional.

  • M.Magog

    Murrieta is at a disadvantage. The pro Amnesty protestors are being paid by you know who and they have come from all over the US. The anti illegal alien protestors are just the residents of the local area of Murrieta. This is not a fair fight. How many of us would love to go there and help the patriots but simply do not have the means? WE can not afford to lose our jobs!Those that want to destroy this country are waging a war, these tactics are war tactics!

  • awb

    Sorry. I didn’t see your post.

  • Dale McNamee

    Do the same to the Mexican flag… “That’s where it belongs”…On the ground and defiled…

  • 5Sardonicus

    When these “protesters” burn an American flag, it is a slap at the Historic American Nation. It is not directed at our” open borders” elites. This can be confirmed by the other sign that urged “Europeans”, native whites, to return to Europe. It’s ironic that these mostly indigent mestizo and mulatto Hispanic “protestors” don’t seem to realize that it is these very same “Europeans” that make this country a safe and prosperous one to live in.

  • Sick of it

    An electrified fence is too weak. We need concrete bunkers and machine guns.

  • Jesse_from_Sweden

    They aren’t putting it into as many words as I am, but the basics of their thinking is “whitey stole our wealth, it’s not our fault that we are poor, whitey owes us”.
    That’s why they don’t get that it’s their behaviour that causes their poverty.
    They think they can come from whatever shithole they were born in, and still act the same way and think that the result will be difference just because they are in another country.
    They fail to realize that it is their very behaviour that is the cause of their home countries being the shitholes that they are.
