What do these people think of our country?

I’m trying to quit posting provocative stuff, really, but here is something to think about.The following came from an email. No, I’ve not “snoped” it as is my custom but there is every indication that they are genuine photos. The initial commentary is that of the forwarder.

Pics from Rally in Phoenix 7/31/10

If anyone has any doubts about what these illegals think of us and our country, check out these pictures taken by an acquaintance of mine who went to the rally in Phoenix Saturday 7/31/10 in response to SB 1070.  The illegals had written all over the AZ and US Flags, laid them on the ground, and were walking on them!

Another acquaintance had this to say:

“I shared those pics with my friend who is a cop/detective. I asked him why nobody was punished for desecrating our flags…his response…..
In response to your question about the legality of Desecration of the American Flag, you are correct, this is illegal. However, it is a crime with the Federal Government. Meaning the Feds will have to prosecute for the crime and considering they will not prosecute for illegal trespassing into the Country, what makes you think they will prosecute anyone for spray painting and walking on an American flag?????”

NOTE: That is the end of the forwarded remarks. The following are mine.

Under our constitutional republic I have to support the right of people, even those who are here illegally, to speak out and even to demonstrate (within peaceful bounds). In fact I’ve served in the military to protect the freedoms we have even to be idiots!  But I don’t support desecration of our flag and we don’t have to indulge in “political correctness” and not react to acts such as this.

What in the world will it take for Congress to become enraged enough to stand up for America, to allow and demand that people be Americans if they want to be here — which implies that they come legally and comport with our laws and rules, and assimilate as Americans.  And while we’re at it, get rid of the hyphenated-American nonsense.  We can all be proud of our heritages (as I am of my Welsh ancestry) but what in the world is so wrong about immigrants becoming proud of their newfound heritage? America:  love it or leave it!
