If Mailbox Bashing is a Crime…

… Then this certainly should be!

What is that, you ask?

Great question. It’s a Mexican flag hoisted above a U.S. Post Office. This past weekend, militant illegal alien activists marched onto a post office station in Maywood, CA, and replaced the American flag with a Mexican flag, while singing anti-American chants.

Here’s the video. Michelle Malkin quips, “This video gives a flavor of the confrontation. Note the lovely language and hand gestures of the pro-illegal reconquista crowd, who taunt the pro-law enforcement demonstrators as “illegal blue eyed devils” and “motherf**kers.” But don’t worry, we’re told. This is just “fringe”:

Freedom Folks and Lonewacko have more coverage.

And Bridget Johnson, blogging at the fantastic new site Political Mavens has an eyewitness account:

Here’s the scene: SOS is peeved about Maywood’s flouting of federal immigration law, claiming they are a sanctuary city for illegal immigrants and even disbanding their police department’s traffic unit so that illegals without driver’s licenses won’t be fearful of getting their cars towed. Several dozen show up to protest this policy. Lefty groups spread the word and a few hundred show up to counterprotest. I hung out with the counterprotesters, who actually had an unfair advantage in the police barricade setup as they were right next to a mariscos joint.

Not to spoil my upcoming column on this protest, but let’s just say it was an afternoon chock full of racism, reconquista (like the “Stolen Continent” sign featuring two continents? props to the LAUSD, eh?) and riot cops. And after the local post office took down the American flag at closing time, pro-immigration demonstrators promptly ran the Mexican flag up the flagpole. Eventually, police officers surrounded the flagpole and tried to get the Mexican flag down, but the cords got twisted and they could only lower it to half-staff.

How much are we willing to cater to this large “minority” who would like to become the majority in this country? Tighten up and sift out.
