No, it's not a song from the musical "Oklahoma!" (although there really is a similar song called "It's a Scandal, It's a Outrage!" ... and it really isn't "an" in the second part of the song title ... really ... I know 'cause I was in the musical in high school .. although only in the chorus).
The scandal ... nay, the outrage ... is what's on in our beloved country ... how it's being fractured by people who want a free ride, for themselves and/or others, without having to fully assimilate and become *real* Americans ... the ones who speak the language, who adopt the culture, who have pride in their heritage but embrace the new (?) reality of their citizenship, those who actually do give a rat's tuckus about our country's seurity and put it ahead of people who choose to break our laws in order to bleed our country dry.
But a picture is worth a thousand words.
Michelle Malkin has an extensive post regarding the walkouts, etc., and including information on how this Mexican flag came to subsume the American flag ... which you will notice is flying upside down.
Now, those of us who are even partially-versed in flag ettiquette can tell you that on US soil, NO flag is supposed to fly higher (or even at an equal level) as the US flag. It supercedes flags of all states and flags of all other nations and states. As Michelle noted:
"I predict this stunt will be the nail in the coffin of any guest-worker/amnesty plan on the table in Washington. The image of the American flag subsumed by another and turned upside down on American soil is already spreading on Internet forums and via e-mail.
The battle for borders and immigration laws that actually mean something, however, hasn't even begun."
And as her reader "Keith M" pointed out:
"The flag should never be displayed with the union down, except as a signal of dire distress in instances of extreme danger to life or property. I am sure you can see the irony. The folks that think they are showing disrespect for the flag are actually signaling to everyone th[at] the US is in trouble."
Something (experience perhaps?) tells me the majority of people in this nation will never see this picture because it will never appear on the evening news, in the newspapers, or even on most cable news networks (a.k.a. CNN or "Communist News Network"). They won't hear anyone on the radical left decry the attempted displacement of our flag for that of a foreign country, just as they don't decry the massive walkouts of severely misguided high school students, just as they incite these kids and others by refusing to stand up for what's right, for our national security, for our very identity as a sovereign nation that should have defined borders, one common language and one common culture. The radical left refuses to see that the US is actually in dire trouble, as the picture accidentally shows.
What the "sheeple" of the US will hear is the people who love this country crying out in horror, in outrage, at those who are adamantly trying to drag us where we should not go, at people who refuse to recognize that La Raza and MeCha are racist organizations and that their desired "reconquista" of the Southwest is only a stone's throw from terrorism, should the wrong people be charismatic enough and get enough attention to be a very good "bad influence" on people who don't know how to think for themselves.
Be sure to read Michelle's entire post, including all the comments. Let me know what you think.
