That would probably be a hate crime.

What's you're point? They can burn the American Flag at Berkeley.
Then they can kick the Marines out.

Why not just give Berkeley over to the Mexicans? They sure down want the U.S. there.

And some don't want to believe this is an invasion.

My point is that when illegal aliens crap on America, it's "free speech" but when Americans squeak out some small protest, they're labeled hateful anti-immigration bigots. Burn a Mexican flag and some people would be calling it a hate crime. The very concept of a "hate crime" should never exist, of course. Not in the United States, anyway. (And if anyone can point me to where that fine place is, I'd be much obliged.)

I don't care for flag burners, but I did put my life on the line to defend their right of free speech
I, too, served in the military, and was glad to do it. Just remember where this post started, those that you are defending raised the Mexican flag above the American flag, which was upside down. I don't believe that is covered in the constitution. Of course, I don't believe teaching mexican is covered in the constituion either, but I could be wrong, it's been known to happen.

I am a Marine! I have great respect for any man/woman who has served in the military under any branch! I have served this country and when you stand on American soil there is no flag that flies higher! I agree with the right to free speach, peaceful assembly, etc.....this goes beyond that! That action to me symbolizes that Mexico has taken over that area and America is no longer in control.

They'll kick the Marines out until Mexico comes up and tries to claim control of the area where their flag is flying high. Then they'll cry and moan until the Marines go in and fight for them. They'll ask men and women to risk their wellbeing, get wounded and possibly die so they can have their freedom back to fly the flag upside down!

Since when has the nation flag being flown upside down involved speach? Is that like the "artist" who covered a picture of the virgin Mary in cow crap? So if I took burned a flag with a rainbow on it you think I wouldn't get a bunch of crap from the the gay community?

I have no way of knowing what point they were trying to make, but they do have a right to make it, just like you did in your post.
Look at the original pictures, they were having a party. It was all a big joke to them. Guess what, it's not a joke to me.
