VIDEO: A Veteran Sees a Mexican Flag Flying ABOVE an American Flag… And He Takes Action!

Watch (below) what happens when Veteran Jim Brossard sees a Mexican business disrespecting the American flag .

Brossard risked his life to protect what that flag stands for, and wasn’t going to allow anyone to illegally fly the Mexican flag above the American flag. So he cut them both down, and took the American flag home with him to treat it with the respect it deserves.

  2. Dallis says:

    Thumbs up Jim. These liberal meat puppets can suck on it.

  3. Don says:

    God bless this Patriot. Just as a side note, I’m proud to say that he is wearing a shirt with my Scottish family tartan, Lindsay. Of course I’m 100% born and raised American, and I’d be proud to stand next to this man and call him my brother. And those mexiacans knew exactly what they were doing, and when confronted, shriveled up, the worms.

  4. Norman says:

    Kudos to a real American; he should have raised the US flag to the top and burned the other one!

  5. Irene says:

    To top it all off this land and world don’t belong to not anyof us so just shut yourjaws if you think that.

  6. Roger says:

    He should of called the police instead of stealing the flag. Now his a wanted criminal for stealing flag. Not to smart.

  7. elena says:

    Did he attempt to talk to the owner first? Explain to him the disrespect? Obviously the guy didn’t look like he knew much. Maybe use words to communicate before taking out a big as knife.

    1. Don says:

      the news report said this had already been an issue for awhile. those disrespectful mexiacans knew exactly what they were doing. The same way they know they’re disrespecting us by speaking spanish in public.

  8. Connie says:

    It’s about time someone stood up for this country and WITHOUT violence…

    NOW, where are all the American CHRISTIANS? Why can’t the CHRISTIAN population be this bold about our rights being taken away??

  9. Dan says:

    They want to fly a Mexican flag,take it to Mexico anf fly it..I’m sick of people coming here from other countries thinking it’s their’s Screw them and the horse they rode in on..Don’t like it,get the hell out of America..

    1. Amanda says:

      At Dan, how about you leave this country if flying a Mexican flag offends you. Your people invaded this land not Mexicans we were already here. So why don’t you just leave and go back where your people are from.. oh yea forgot your people don’t actually belong anywhere cuz everywhere you guys are isn’t your natural home land. So knock the hell off saying leave this country if you don’t like it cuz we have more of a right here than you

      1. Dallis says:

        @Amanda
        Hernan Cortés invaded Mexico in 1519 and conquered the Aztec Empire.
        And neither were you the first in America. Columbus wasn’t the first to come here either. So that dog wont hunt.

  10. Richard says:

    First of all the owner did not know the law and had no intentions of disrespecting anyones country. Hell im a mexican american and i didnt even know that law. The dude was wrong for doing that all he had to do is tell the owner what the law is and for him to fix the flags ad they should be. And then if he does not then you can proceed with your actions. He assumed that he was disrespecting the country on purpose cause he mentioned fighting us ect.. Not even the case. He was wrong

  11. Matt says:

    Forcing your beliefs on others is unamerican. Get over yourself, buddy. Smacks of racism.

  12. Michael says:

    He had every right as a American citizen to take such action.

  13. Mark says:

    That is cool now get rid of those that hate America; they don’t belong here!

  14. Mike says:

    WAY TO GO BUDDY. IT’S GOOD TO SEE A REAL AMERICAN STAND UP FOR WHAT’S RIGHT. DID YOU SEE THAT CHICKEN SHIT NOT SAY ANYTHING AND RUN INSIDE. LOVE IT

  15. Bryant says:

    One of the first constitutional principles taught in American schools is that the civil authority is supreme to the military. Certainly, every veteran of the US armed services should know and honor this concept. He could have spoken to the business owner, or complained to the police about it. His outrage about the situation does not put him above the law.

    Unfortunately, this man’s behavior does not reflect the dignity and discipline that I saw in the World War II and Korean War veterans who were the fathers and role models in the neighborhood where I was raised.

    Being a veteran or disagreeing with a situation does not give this man or any of us the right to take the law into his own hands. Especially in light of the violence and destruction that we have seen in urban settings around the country in recent months, we should be consistent in our advocacy of the civilized rule of law over undisciplined anger.

    I hope this man enjoys his fifteen minutes of fame. He has done no honor to his country nor to American veterans.

  16. Jim says:

    Take both flags down. Take the American flag home with him and burn the Mexican flag right there on the spot.

  17. Gerardo says:

    The big problem is all the cocaine that americans use every second, We are paying your cocaine adictions. But one day the flag of ISIS will be over american flag, and may be many head will be cut of, sigan persiuiendo a los latinos, y cuando se den cuenta estarán besando la bandera del islan y los radicales de ISIS

    1. Gerardo says:

      El problema se basa en que ven a los latinos como enemigos, no se debe olvidar que muchos emigraron de otros paises, y tampoco que la tierra era de los nativos norteamericanos que fueron expulsados de sus tierras, pero eso es historia. ahora bien el por que en la actualidad muchas personas emigran legal o ilegalmente es por que nuestros paises se han convertido en el patio de los carteles de las drogas, para darles toda la cocaina que se consume cada segundo en norte america. Algunos viven una guerra psicologia contra los mexicanos, pero dejan entrar a los islamistas radicales que les estan ondeando la bandera de ISIS, y cortandoles las cabezas a gente inocente.

  18. Kathy says:

    I applaud this veteran for taking a stand WITHOUT VIOLENCE!!! He did not provoke the Mexican owner in any disrespectful way !!! What he did accomplish here , was the honoring our flag , our country , & educating this & other Mexicans they are BREAKING THE LAW if they fly their flag above ours …. Hence the fact that this is THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA …. And NOT MEXICO !!!
    I’m sure the “Mexican federales would have reacted the same if not worse , had an American tried to fly a foreign flag over the Mexican one !!! GOD BLESS AMERICA

  19. Alton says:

    Damn right I would have done the same!!!!

  20. Juan says:

    My neighbor is a retired retired servicemen and a Christian like I am, he displays his flag every day but I noticed that today the wind broke the pole and the flag lies over the balcony. Should I break his door with a sledge hammer and steal his property instead of politely approaching him and letting him know about it with courtesy like a civilized person? The law is already in your hands sir, use it, this is the United Estates not Honduras. Also please get help for PTSD, it’s a serious affliction.

  21. Braulio says:

    there should be a law in the US that prohibits this….and the person should be cited and/or arrested….and I approve of this action……….total disrespect…….fly your flag in the US under the US flag or go home and fly it there, wherever that may be…..

  22. Amber says:

    I disagree with the man that cut the flags down . He should go to jail. He has no right to violate someone property . And at the same time he was threatening them saying he wanted to fight them. He is cutting it down because of the disrespect to the American flag … well he just did the same thing he left their flag on the dirty sidewalk after he destroyed his property. If it is illegal what he should’ve done was let a law enforcement officer handle it. What if they were willing to fight him for this it could’ve gone badly . And who would’ve been to blame not him . They would’ve blamed the men trying to protect their property . The man that cut the flag and stole someone’s property is wrong . And I think this was more about a racial problem against Mexicans or Mexican Americans. He was just so eager to FIGHT . They are from Mexico they will always stand for their country as he says he was doing. They came to America for a better life for them and their children. So they love America as well. But you are not supposed to forget where you came from. They did not know that it was illegal. He could’ve talked to them in a respectable manner and explained to them it was illegal . Anyway to the guy who cut down the flags you sir are a hypocrite. And are very lucky you aren’t in jail.

    1. Juan says:

      I agree with you, what I see here is warmongering! This poor guy still thinks he is in Vietnam 🙁
      The law was on his side, why not use it!

  23. Randall says:

    No disrespect should be shown to the flag of the United States of America; the flag should not be dipped to any person or thing. Regimental colors, State flags, and organization or institutional flags are to be dipped as a mark of honor.
    (a) 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.
    (b) The flag should never touch anything beneath it, such as the ground, the floor, water, or merchandise.
    (c) The flag should never be carried flat or horizontally, but always aloft and free.
    (d) The flag should never be used as wearing apparel, bedding, or drapery. It should never be festooned, drawn back, nor up, in folds, but always allowed to fall free. Bunting of blue, white, and red, always arranged with the blue above, the white in the middle, and the red below, should be used for covering a speaker’s desk, draping the front of the platform, and for decoration in general.
    (e) The flag should never be fastened, displayed, used, or stored in such a manner as to permit it to be easily torn, soiled, or damaged in any way.
    (f) The flag should never be used as a covering for a ceiling.
    (g) The flag should never have placed upon it, nor on any part of it, nor attached to it any mark, insignia, letter, word, figure, design, picture, or drawing of any nature.
    (h) The flag should never be used as a receptacle for receiving, holding, carrying, or delivering anything.
    (i) The flag should never be used for advertising purposes in any manner whatsoever. It should not be embroidered on such articles as cushions or handkerchiefs and the like, printed or otherwise impressed on paper napkins or boxes or anything that is designed for temporary use and discard. Advertising signs should not be fastened to a staff or halyard from which the flag is flown.
    (j) No part of the flag should ever be used as a costume or athletic uniform. However, a flag patch may be affixed to the uniform of military personnel, firemen, policemen, and members of patriotic organizations. The flag represents a living country and is itself considered a living thing. Therefore, the lapel flag pin being a replica, should be worn on the left lapel near the heart.
    (k) The flag, when it is in such condition that it is no longer a fitting emblem for display, should be destroyed in a dignified way, preferably by burning.

    1. Randall says:

      During the ceremony of hoisting or lowering the flag or when the flag is passing in a parade or in review, all persons present in uniform should render the military salute. Members of the Armed Forces and veterans who are present but not in uniform may render the military salute. All other persons present should face the flag and stand at attention with their right hand over the heart, or if applicable, remove their headdress with their right hand and hold it at the left shoulder, the hand being over the heart. Citizens of other countries present should stand at attention. All such conduct toward the flag in a moving column should be rendered at the moment the flag passes.

  24. Randall says:

    HOW THE AMERICAN FLAG SHOULD BE FLOWN …THAT ONLY STATE THAT CAN FLY ITS FLAG THAT THE SAME HEIGHT AS THE AMERICAN FLAG IS TEXAS ALL OTHERS HAVE TO BELOW ..

    .4 U.S. Code § 7 – Position and manner of display
    US Code
    Notes
    prev | next
    The flag, when carried in a procession with another flag or flags, should be either on the marching right; that is, the flag’s own right, or, if there is a line of other flags, in front of the center of that line.
    (a) The flag should not be displayed on a float in a parade except from a staff, or as provided in subsection (i) of this section.
    (b) The flag should not be draped over the hood, top, sides, or back of a vehicle or of a railroad train or a boat. When the flag is displayed on a motorcar, the staff shall be fixed firmly to the chassis or clamped to the right fender.
    (c) No other flag or pennant should be placed above or, if on the same level, to the right of the flag of the United States of America, except during church services conducted by naval chaplains at sea, when the church pennant may be flown above the flag during church services for the personnel of the Navy. No person shall display the flag of the United Nations or any other national or international flag equal, above, or in a position of superior prominence or honor to, or in place of, the flag of the United States at any place within the United States or any Territory or possession thereof: Provided, That nothing in this section shall make unlawful the continuance of the practice heretofore followed of displaying the flag of the United Nations in a position of superior prominence or honor, and other national flags in positions of equal prominence or honor, with that of the flag of the United States at the headquarters of the United Nations.
    (d) The flag of the United States of America, when it is displayed with another flag against a wall from crossed staffs, should be on the right, the flag’s own right, and its staff should be in front of the staff of the other flag.
    (e) The flag of the United States of America should be at the center and at the highest point of the group when a number of flags of States or localities or pennants of societies are grouped and displayed from staffs.
    (f) When flags of States, cities, or localities, or pennants of societies are flown on the same halyard with the flag of the United States, the latter should always be at the peak. When the flags are flown from adjacent staffs, the flag of the United States should be hoisted first and lowered last. No such flag or pennant may be placed above the flag of the United States or to the United States flag’s right.
    (g) When flags of two or more nations are displayed, they are to be flown from separate staffs of the same height. The flags should be of approximately equal size. International usage forbids the display of the flag of one nation above that of another nation in time of peace.
    (h) When the flag of the United States is displayed from a staff projecting horizontally or at an angle from the window sill, balcony, or front of a building, the union of the flag should be placed at the peak of the staff unless the flag is at half-staff. When the flag is suspended over a sidewalk from a rope extending from a house to a pole at the edge of the sidewalk, the flag should be hoisted out, union first, from the building.
    (i) When displayed either horizontally or vertically against a wall, the union should be uppermost and to the flag’s own right, that is, to the observer’s left. When displayed in a window, the flag should be displayed in the same way, with the union or blue field to the left of the observer in the street.
    (j) When the flag is displayed over the middle of the street, it should be suspended vertically with the union to the north in an east and west street or to the east in a north and south street.
    (k) When used on a speaker’s platform, the flag, if displayed flat, should be displayed above and behind the speaker. When displayed from a staff in a church or public auditorium, the flag of the United States of America should hold the position of superior prominence, in advance of the audience, and in the position of honor at the clergyman’s or speaker’s right as he faces the audience. Any other flag so displayed should be placed on the left of the clergyman or speaker or to the right of the audience.
    (l) The flag should form a distinctive feature of the ceremony of unveiling a statue or monument, but it should never be used as the covering for the statue or monument.
    (m) The flag, when flown at half-staff, should be first hoisted to the peak for an instant and then lowered to the half-staff position. The flag should be again raised to the peak before it is lowered for the day. On Memorial Day the flag should be displayed at half-staff until noon only, then raised to the top of the staff. By order of the President, the flag shall be flown at half-staff upon the death of principal figures of the United States Government and the Governor of a State, territory, or possession, as a mark of respect to their memory. In the event of the death of other officials or foreign dignitaries, the flag is to be displayed at half-staff according to Presidential instructions or orders, or in accordance with recognized customs or practices not inconsistent with law. In the event of the death of a present or former official of the government of any State, territory, or possession of the United States or the death of a member of the Armed Forces from any State, territory, or possession who dies while serving on active duty, the Governor of that State, territory, or possession may proclaim that the National flag shall be flown at half-staff, and the same authority is provided to the Mayor of the District of Columbia with respect to present or former officials of the District of Columbia and members of the Armed Forces from the District of Columbia. When the Governor of a State, territory, or possession, or the Mayor of the District of Columbia, issues a proclamation under the preceding sentence that the National flag be flown at half-staff in that State, territory, or possession or in the District of Columbia because of the death of a member of the Armed Forces, the National flag flown at any Federal installation or facility in the area covered by that proclamation shall be flown at half-staff consistent with that proclamation. The flag shall be flown at half-staff 30 days from the death of the President or a former President; 10 days from the day of death of the Vice President, the Chief Justice or a retired Chief Justice of the United States, or the Speaker of the House of Representatives; from the day of death until interment of an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court, a Secretary of an executive or military department, a former Vice President, or the Governor of a State, territory, or possession; and on the day of death and the following day for a Member of Congress. The flag shall be flown at half-staff on Peace Officers Memorial Day, unless that day is also Armed Forces Day. As used in this subsection—
    (1) the term “half-staff” means the position of the flag when it is one-half the distance between the top and bottom of the staff;
    (2) the term “executive or military department” means any agency listed under sections 101 and 102 of title 5, United States Code; and
    (3) the term “Member of Congress” means a Senator, a Representative, a Delegate, or the Resident Commissioner from Puerto Rico.
    (n) When the flag is used to cover a casket, it should be so placed that the union is at the head and over the left shoulder. The flag should not be lowered into the grave or allowed to touch the ground.
    (o) When the flag is suspended across a corridor or lobby in a building with only one main entrance, it should be suspended vertically with the union of the flag to the observer’s left upon entering. If the building has more than one main entrance, the flag should be suspended vertically near the center of the corridor or lobby with the union to the north, when entrances are to the east and west or to the east when entrances are to the north and south. If there are entrances in more than two directions, the union should be to the east.

  25. Sergio says:

    i’ll fight him, I completely agree that the American flag should’ve been above but he had the duty to make sure that a sister flag would not touch the ground. Out of mutual respect.

  26. Adam says:

    Screw mexico. Anyone that loves it so much should either move there, stay there, or go back.
    Good job Jim!!

  27. Susan says:

    He did what any American I would hope would do..as a retired Army Veteran….he made me proud…and yes..it WAS illegal the flag was below the other flag..this is America..if you don’t like my Country..get the hell out….

  28. Charles says:

    The “vet” needs to review US history. Spain ruled the S/W until the US took it by deceit & violence.
    And don’t be so foolish as to think their descendants have forgot it.

  29. mgladst11c says:

    First of all, there are no laws governing Flags in the United States. The US flag code is advisory because the Supreme Court ruled any punitive laws governing flags would violate the Constitution. Which leads me to the broader point that if a person wants to fly an American flag underneath a Mexican flag or fly it upside down or burn it: Who cares? That is freedom of speech and freedom of expression at its finest. People who are so concerned with protecting the flag want to do it at the cost of liberties protected by the Constitution. Any veteran or Active duty military personnel (like myself) should be more concerned with protecting the Constitution (from all enemies foreign and domestic) than protecting the Flag. I never swore an oath to defend the flag. I understand why this veteran may have been upset but he was wrong.. like a lot of the people who have posted on this story.

    1. Randall says:

      Any rule or custom pertaining to the display of the flag of the United States of America, set forth herein, may be altered, modified, or repealed, or additional rules with respect thereto may be prescribed, by the Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces of the United States, whenever he deems it to be appropriate or desirable; and any such alteration or additional rule shall be set forth in a proclamation.

      AND AS FAR AS I KNOW THE PRESIDENT HAS NOT DONE SO …SO BE THAT AS IT MAY YOU CAN JUST SHUT THE FUCK UP…

  30. Thomas says:

    I don’t understand why someone didn’t just tell the business owner that flying the 2 flags in this manner was illegal? The business owner stated that he didn’t know it was illegal, and if someone had just told him, then he might have taken the flags down and swapped them himself. Instead what was done, was to create conflict and bad feelings.

  31. Wayne says:

    Within our borders our flag is NEVER flown beneath another countries flag. Equal with Texas’s but always above other countries.

  32. Feliciano says:

    What he did was for the right reason but you just don’t remedy a wrong with another wrong! He took the law into his hands and committed a violation of law known as “VANDALISM!”. Vandalism is an action involving deliberate destruction of or damage to public or private property. What he should have done was to address the oversight with the owner or with proper authorities. By the way, save your insults! I did my time; U.S. Marines, Grunt, Vietnam, Quangnam Province.

  33. Paul says:

    The intent was pure. If he had asked the owner to change the flags and was told to blank off, then his actions were impressive. Just to cut the rope and then wad the American flag like that without taking time to fold it and carry it.

  34. Edwin says:

    The Veteran probably shouldn’t of brandished a Ka-Bar on national television… but I still support his actions.

    ~Semper Fi

  35. Steven says:

    Good job. I believe in this country it should be illegal to fly ANY countries flag other than ours, let alone above an American flag. If these people are so proud of their countries, GO BACK.

  36. Heather says:

    Absolutely! .. No one should be able to fly the American flag on American soil in any other position but ON TOP!

  37. Charles says:

    Yes I absolutely support this veterans actions. Question: Why does the Mexican flag fly in our country in the first place? It never has in the past. To my knowledge the Mexican flag has only been raised in this country since Obama has been in office. It seems to me a slap in the face of Americans.

    1. Thomas says:

      That is not a correct statement. The flag of Mexico flies outside the United nations in new York City, as well as outside every Mexico Embassy everywhere.

    2. Adam says:

      Wrong. It has been flown in the states that border mexico for decades, just properly. Obama is not to blame on this one. It’s the huge number of legal and illegal mexican immigrants in those states.

  38. John says:

    I would have stand by the Vet six, on guard, while he took home our pride. We bleed for it, we respect our flag, and we are proud. Let there be known; our young ones, as we did, will defend it anywhere. We Vets, will take care of home until you come back. I read somewhere here PTSD. Really? Guess you don’t know the meaning of it, or what is going on here.
    A Vietnam Vet….

  39. William says:

    Latinos can be of any race. There are white Latinos so it’s not about race.

  40. L says:

    Kudo’s for him for taking it down. I wish he would have simply taken it down and corrected it, by flying the American flag over the Mexican flag. I can understand why he was upset and took it away.
    Also, it was drilled into my head how to fold the flag, and I’m sure that I would have respectfully folded it first.

  41. Julie says:

    In this video, all is said and shown !
    If someone is not treating the flag of his country with honor and respect , he may not call themselves citizens of his country !
    RESPECT for ALL who act as veteran Jim Brossard and all other persons (shown in video)!
    GOD BLESS AMERICA / our citizens / our flag !

  42. Steve says:

    Yes he did if it was Mexico then no but in America our flag flies high I would have taken the flag pole down

  43. Irene says:

    Absolutely! No flag flies above the Stars and Stripes. It is time that schools resume teaching about the respect for our flag.

  44. Christina says:

    Tired of the abuse from foreigners coming to this country trying to claim it as theirs and pushing their ways on us.. Tired of all the so called political correctness and the American people scared to do or say anything that might offend someone!! Im proud this man did this, and no need for him to explain to the store owner what he was doing wrong.. He already knew..He will never get a dollar of mine and shouldn’t get anyones dollar that is a true American!

  45. Greg says:

    He’ll yes he did the right thing. I don’t think I’d have the courage he does. Wish I did!!

  46. David says:

    the law of the land here in america states that it is a felony to fly any flag above the american flag

  47. Charles says:

    He did what was right, I would do the same thing and i’m a Viet Vet.

  48. Terina says:

    This isn’t Mexico!!! Praises to the man that took a stand!!

  49. Bob says:

    A real man.

  50. Leena says:

    Do Mexicans WANT a war?

  51. Vivian says:

    Hurray for the veteran.The Mexican store owner should be prosecuted as per the law. Veteran should not be prosecuted for taking down the American Flag it is not against the law.

  52. Donna says:

    This is the U.S.A…not Mexico or any other country. It stands to reason the US flag should be the only flag flying. Anyone who doesn’t agree shouldn’t be living here

  53. Richard says:

    Well now speedy knows the law doesn’t he!

  54. aguide says:

    I just want to say Job well done to the Veteran. And to the News Lady, he did not steal the flag, he confiscated it. Just a good citizen taking action where the police failed to act

    1. Amber says:

      Nice trying to hide behind the flag huh. Ive read all of these comments and over half are not about the flag. All I see is racial comments. Wow. I am an American I have been born and raised an American but I will not throw out racist comments because that is wrong. This ridiculous . It should been handle in a different manner. I pray for all of your racist souls!

  55. Julie says:

    He was a lot nicer about it than I would have been. Very disrespectful! If anyone flies a non Mexican flag in Mexico, they get arrested with no right to a translator either!

  56. Mike says:

    100% support the veteran who did this

  57. Brenda says:

    This is America people not Mexico although you look around it sure feels like it common sense and respect for where you live this business knew exactly what it is doing. It is enough we have stand back enough everyone has a right to come to the Great Country to try and better themselves and there families this is so true but no one has the right to disrespect this country ever… We as citizens have stood in the back ground for to long enough is enough no more coddling anybody that comes into this country I say they don’t get welfare as soon as they the country they must all work or prove they are looking for a job my state needs the ditches cleaned things needed to get painted roads need to be repaired put em to work! no not speaking English and waiting for someone to translate this is America learn the damn language

  58. Nahila says:

    Humans will never stop being so ignorant. Especially the ones who act as if being white american is the best race and as privelidged. Things need to be done the correct way the man couldve went in the shop and asked the shop owner to set the flag up the right way. Maybe the man was ignorant to the law or did not believe it was wrong. If then the shop owner kept it that way he shouldve let the authorities take care of if. Instead of destroying private property. And blaming president obama oh wow… thats surprising thats the answer to all our problems right… he’s to blame. Simple one track minded people time and time again your intelligence is lacking. This country has been suffering since before Obama just because you don’t want to say Bush a white man had anything to do with this, yet nothing can be done about the past just learn from mistakes and improve our future. How about educating your children and grandchildren. Focus on academics on expanding there brains. And on go to mexico comment simple comment its a free country and we can way a mexican flag,indian,chinese,usa,germany flag. This country was made of immigrants because americans were born here made from here they were fugitives shipped here from the queen and took the native americans land. So we are all immigrants except native americans. So before anyone else starts to have such negative racist comments learn the history, before speaking you so proud to be americans without realizing you are immigrants your families were immigrants and fugitives so dont be so quick to judge but be open for humanities advances in medicine,technology,engineering, agriculture no matter if we are black,white ,mexican,chinese,japanese,indian,native americans we can all achieve great things together but only if we stop seeing eachother as ethnicity and see eachother as humans.

    1. Richard says:

      Nahila, you sound like a liberal with that statement! My2cents

  59. AJ says:

    I agree with what this Veteran did and as a US Army Veteran myself I would have done the same… To many men and women have died defending that flag to allow anyone to desecrate it or in this case fly another countries flag above it on US soil..

  60. Dan says:

    Absolutely. I would have done the same thing. We fought for this country and to have this kind of illegal activity condoned by these dummycrat politicians infuriates me. I will be expressing my displeasure by voting all dummycrats out of office. It is time to take back our country from these Libtard anti-America haters. American Flags and patriotism is NOT illegal and cannot be infringed upon. No matter how much they try to make it so.

  61. Charles says:

    You can BET that if I* see such a thing, I will behave in the same manner!

  62. Buck says:

    Thank goodness, we still have people that are proud to be an American. I am about tired of these people thinking they don’t have to abide by our laws.

  63. Francine says:

    Get some my brother……Not knowing is no excuse…….Learn the laws of the land and react accordingly…. Men and women have sacrificed and died for that flag….you want to fly the Mexican flag…go to Mexico

  64. Bill says:

    The veteran should have explained the law to the business owner and offered to correct the problem,as it is he lets himself open for prosecution.i agree it had to be taken down and flown correctly.he could have even gotten the local law involved to fix this.You have to do things lawful ,otherwise its going to be a problem.I,m a veteran I will defend the flag until the day I die! The law was on his side,utilize the chain of command,It may have been a misunderstanding rather than an act of disrespect.

    1. Nika says:

      And Bill do you really think the owner was trying to send a message knowing exactly what he was doing-YES? We have a President ALLOWING our laws to be openly broken Bill what do you suppose America should do about him? AMERICANS are tired of being stepped on with individuals and countries knowing we always take pause and do what is right and this is destroying us around the world all in the name of being responsible and showing consideration first in every situation including those who use it to come against us. We are fed up and torn by LIE after LIE and being used in every way possible all of it shaming out great country. AMERICA let’s stand boldly now. I too am for my country FIRST and Veteran Jim Brossard thank you for coming forward openly honoring our nation in representation and for what we give/have given our lives for. President Obama should be ashamed and I hope our land is blessed by his resignation and/or impeachment after November 4th right after voting out his democratic senate starting with Harry Reid. AMERICA WE STAND and those who shame, break our laws and come against our land “AMERICA” simply leave and go where your heart truly is and supports.

    2. Kathy says:

      When they come to this country they know the laws,i would have done the same thing ,because my father fought for this country and for what are flag means.if he wanted to fly his flag then go back to where you are from.i love that flag as it represents the freedom , loyalty and brave that many soldiers fought to defend and to honor,don’t like it then don’t live here, GOD BLESS AMERICA

  65. Dennis says:

    He was most certainly correct to take down that Mexican flag , Mexicos invasion of our country is not complete yet as we still have patriotic Americans willing to stand up for America.

  66. Lesia says:

    THANK YOU JIM, for ….yet still, fighting for our country!!! I also bless you for all that you do.

  67. Joanne says:

    I totally agree with what he did … and I’m proud that he had the courage to do it!

  68. Red Crow says:

    Good Job Gettin it done !!!!! They need stricter laws against anyone who disrespects our Nations Flag, such as Flag burning, Flag Dragging, Flying Flag upside down. If they don’t like America and our culture they need to go back to their roots,

  69. Harry says:

    good luck with filing a police report. no jury will convict him. Not gonna happen

  70. Michael says:

    God bless you Jim

  71. Jon says:

    I Don’t believe the business owner and what this fellow Veteran did was righteous. I just hope he knows how to properly dispose of the Colors after it has been damaged. Please look it up it you are unaware of the simply protocol. Spoon USAF Ret

    1. Neal says:

      So what would you have done, John? I think what the Veteran did was great. He will probably display our flag at his home.

  72. Tom says:

    Thank you Jim that is the sign of a true & proud American God Bless you

  73. samiannie says:

    Thank you Jim,
    Throw the Mexican out of the country. He is probably an illegal. Stupid jerk.

    1. Denise says:

      The store owner said hes an American citizen. Could be lying though. I love America. I’m not a veteran but probably would have done the same thing. If you don’t love the US, then please leave

  74. Vince says:

    I have no problem with someone flying the Mexican Flag in the US – but not above the American Flag. I hope these people did this out of ignorance. They need to fly the Mexican flag below the American Flag – or fly both flags from poles of equal height. They could also fly the Mexican Flag on a shorter pole – but it is an insult to fly your countries flag above the flag of the nation in which you reside. The same rule applies to flying the American Flag in Mexico.

    1. Denise says:

      The store owner said he did not know it was illegal to do that. Glad there were no injuries.

  75. Peter says:

    A perfect example of a Vet with PTSD.

    1. Charles says:

      PTSD? Seriously? Maybe you ought to move back to Mexico…. or turn in your welfare check.

      He OBEYED the law of the land, forcing compliance of a business to our laws. That’s not PTSD. That’s PATRIOTISM

      1. Nahila says:

        Did you just say welfare check
        hahaha ignorance the majority of people on welfare arent mexicans who are illegal its whites and blacks. Get your facts before speaking utter stupidity.

        1. Margi says:

          You OBVIOUSLY have never gone to the social services office! It is a requirement to speak Spanish here! Maybe YOU need to have your facts checked.

  76. Dk says:

    In Mexico, it is illegal to fly any flag higher than the Mexican flag… we should do the same!

    1. Charles says:

      In the US, it is ALREADY illegal for any flag to fly higher than the US flag. They may, however, be of equal height.

    2. Denise says:

      It is a law that no other flag can fly higher than our flag. You can get fined or 30 days in jail.

  77. Peter says:

    Even if you’re born here and of another race you need to know the law and respect the flag or don’t bother flying the flag. I applaud the veteran for his stand against the crime to our flag and putting himself above harm doing so. I’m also glad nobody was hurt during this situation.

    Now let’s take back all of America that is being subjected to this and many more indignities.

  78. Blane says:

    Mission completed, objective met!!! SSG Blane Barnes, Retired Army

    1. Dennis says:

      Jon your post makes no sense unless you are campaigning for sainthood ! No foreign flag flies above the American flag as per protocol ! The veteran did what you obviously would not do . From a wounded combat Marine!

      1. Dennis says:

        My comment was supposed to go under Jons post not Blanes as I agree with Blane
