The right-wing is continuing its drive to turn us into a laughing stock among civilized nations.
One of the wingnuts, a hateful talk radio host, Michael Savage (whose real last name, by the way, is Weiner - very appropriate, for such a little prick) is urging his listeners to take to the streets and burn Mexican flags, to show their displeasure over immigrants.
According to Media Matters: "Savage claimed that the only way to combat the onslaught of illegal immigrants is through protest and asked his audience to "[b]urn a Mexican flag for America, burn a Mexican flag for those who died that you should have a nationality and a sovereignty, go out in the street and show you're a man, burn 10 Mexican flags, if I could recommend it. Put one in the window upside down and tell them to go back where they came from!"
So now they want us to look like those mobs you see in Gaza or Iran burning the U.S. flag and chanting Death to the Great Satan.
I know we're supposed to get all outraged when we see that, and fume - oh my God, they're burning Old Glory, but I always just laugh at those mobs. They look so pathetic and impotent. To get so riled up and your big response is burning a piece of cloth. Pitiful.
And now, that's what the hatemongers on the right want us to do to another nation's flag.
By the time Bush and his crowd get out of office, we're going to be using witch doctors and potion makers for medicine, and cowering in fear at eclipses. Today's GOP - buildng a bridge to the 18th century.
