Mexican Flag Flying in America
Tressy Capps got in trouble when she confronted a Mexican family flying a Mexican flag in California.
However, she confronted the wrong people. The people she should have confronted were those who radically changed our immigration laws.
The Mexican family moved to the USA because they wanted the high standard of living that is associated with White countries. They flew the Mexican flag because they racially related to Mexicans. Both positions are understandable and natural.
And despite Tressy Capps' protests, this was a racial issue. I doubt that she would have complained if I flew a Scottish flag at my home. The truth is she knows that European immigrants are better for the United States than immigrants from Mexico. Tressy wants to live around English speaking people who share the same basic values.
But Tressy's appeal to the American flag was a mistake. For America was founded on a radical form of egalitarianism. It is just the logical progression of that philosophy that has led to the change of our immigration laws.
America was an experiment that failed.
