CO: Anti-ICE Open-Borders Protestors Raise Mexican Flag, Upside Down American Flag At ICE Facility

CO: Anti-ICE Open-Borders Protestors Raise Mexican Flag, Upside Down American Flag At ICE Facility

Winning hearts and minds . . . for #Trump2020

In response to the news that there were going to be ICE raids and deportations of illegal aliens who have already been issued deportation orders, leftists in Colorado chose a uniquely infuriating way to protest the move.

They illegally entered federal property, took down the American flag, defaced it, raised it (upside down), and raised a Mexican flag at the same height as the defaced, union-down American flag.  They also raised some sort of anti-police/Blue Lives Matter flag in place of the Colorado state flag.

The American flag was defaced with the words “Abolish ICE” and raised with the union down:

Following the dispersal of the crowd, ICE restored the American flag and the Colorado state flag to their rightful positions and removed the Mexican flag.

CBS Denver reports:

Hundreds of protesters gathered in Aurora on Friday evening to march to the ICE detention facility where illegal and undocumented immigrants are being housed. They also removed the U.S. flag, replaced it with a Mexican flag, and spray painted graffiti on a Blue Lives Matter flag before it was seen flying upside down on the flag pole.

. . . .  The protesters say they are demonstrating against the treatment of the people living inside. The Blue Lives Matter flag was vandalized with “Abolish ICE” in spray paint.

The original flags outside the ICE facility, including the U.S. flag and Colorado flag were placed on the flag poles after the crowd dispersed. The Mexican flag and spray painted Blue Lives Matter flag were removed.

Watch the report:

Seeing the Mexican flag raised to equal height with this defaced and inverted American flag, on federal land, is so far beyond the pale that I really can’t understand what the protestors hope to accomplish.

All it shows me is that they are beyond clueless about America and about Americans if they think for one second they will change one heart or one mind with this anti-American treachery.  Well, they may actually change a lot of hearts and minds, just not as they hope.

Which of the approximately 352 Democrat presidential candidates will be first to adopt this on the campaign trail?  Think of the slathering anarchist/socialist/communist lefties who will adore it.

Better yet, think of the massive fail in the general election when President Trump wins by an historic landslide, one that makes Mondale’s 13 electoral votes and McGovern’s 17 look positively glowing.  And all handed to Trump on a silver platter by this sort of fevered leftist hatred for our great nation.

Twitchy’s headline sums it up: “‘Trump is going to win 45 states’: Protesters take down American flag and raise Mexican flag at ICE detention center in Colorado.”

This certainly will remove doubt—if any remained—that progressives and many Democrats are openly anti-American. They only question now is what to do about it.

    Gun Up?

      BIGLY! You would never see this type of behavior in the 1950’s. How the mighty have fallen.

      ray in reply to Firewatch. | July 13, 2019 at 9:35 pm

      They are, after all, enemy combatants. And supporting an alien invasion.

        moonmoth in reply to ray. | July 14, 2019 at 12:35 am

        “Combatants”? At what point did this specific group of protesters use violence against any person?

          Gremlin1974 in reply to moonmoth. | July 14, 2019 at 9:29 am

          The moment they decided to destroy and deface property not owned by them. Like it or not that is Violence. Now I am not saying they should have been hurt or killed, but none the less that is violence.

    JusticeDelivered in reply to iconotastic. | July 13, 2019 at 10:53 pm

    They raised a Mexican flag, how about America declares war on Mexico over 20-30 or more million illegals, then declare them agents of a foreign enemy. I wonder how fast they can scurry back across that border?

    We really need to create a situation where they flee.

      Posts like yours show that the Progressives aren’t entirely wrong when they say that Conservatives are fascists.

        Gremlin1974 in reply to moonmoth. | July 14, 2019 at 9:32 am

        And posts like yours show that leftist are hyperbolic whiners. Because one person says something then all “conservatives” are fascists? Give me a break.

        Gremlin1974 in reply to moonmoth. | July 14, 2019 at 1:16 pm

        Actually, you did and then did it again after a paragraph of claiming you didn’t.

        Also, I didn’t misconstrue anything. I explained that destroying personal property was violence. You sound like you are saying violence is fine as long as it isn’t against a person.

      Gremlin1974 in reply to JusticeDelivered. | July 14, 2019 at 9:30 am

      That is easier done by denying entitlements to Illegal Aliens. Take away the free stuff and that will work much better.

They should have opened fire.

    moonmoth in reply to puhiawa. | July 13, 2019 at 11:23 pm

    What did they do that justified use of lethal force?

    Gremlin1974 in reply to puhiawa. | July 14, 2019 at 9:39 am

    Wrong answer. Firstly that would be illegal, secondly that would also be a way to lose the fight on this issue in a single stroke. Also, remember most of these people are misinformed and have been brainwashed by the public “education” system run by leftist. So that would be like the football team beating up the special education class because one or two of them interrupted an assembly.

    Now the ones who defaced and destroyed property should have been arrested and if defended by the crowd they should have been dispersed by non-lethal means and the perps arrested.

    My question is why was the protest allowed to form that close to what is supposed to be a secure facility? There is a lack of leadership and security.

healthguyfsu | July 13, 2019 at 4:07 pm

I hope they are prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, but I won’t hold my breath.

It’s all you need to see, isn’t it? Keep these people out.

More Democrats dishonoring our flag. Just keep it up. Remove an illegal, handcuffed to a Democrat.

Emigration reform to mitigate the progress of immigration reform at both ends of the bridge and throughout. #HateLovesAbortion

Brass knuckles for the knuckleheads.

I’m ordering some more ammo

Well. Apparently in Tacoma today they did have to open fire. Killed a perp trying to firebomb the facility.

    Yeah, I saw that. Seems like a legit shooting to me (but I am not an attorney).

    nebel in reply to puhiawa. | July 13, 2019 at 8:42 pm

    The state government can’t prosecute the federal officer for performing his job. Idaho was never able to prosecute the Ruby Ridge FBI sniper. That leaves only the federal government which usually protects its own.

      Gremlin1974 in reply to nebel. | July 14, 2019 at 9:46 am

      Why would prosecution even be on the table for what is obviously a clean and clear case of self defense. The perp had homemade bombs and a rifle. He threw those bombs at the detention facility.

      Not only did he endanger the officers but he also endangered the detainees which I am sure include children. He deserved a bullet just for endangering the children, IMHO.

      This guy was a terrorist plain and simple. You don’t try to talk terrorist down and you don’t play nice, you put them down, period.

Back in the 1970s I was among those with the bumper sticker, “Don’t Californicate Colorado”. And at the time, I was in the majority. Unfortunately, we didn’t build a wall and the GOP was only a half-step more conservative than the liberal Democrats. We’re now, after 25 years of migration from CA to CO, the bought state of the Gay/Lesbian lobby, the NEA, and Democrats.

I won’t stay long, given the pace at which Polis and the Dems have instituted their brand of social disruption in just the last year.

Gremlin1974 | July 13, 2019 at 8:48 pm

This is why they make something called a “Crowd Fogger” filled with Pepper Spray. Once people start breaking laws it is no longer a “Peaceful Demonstration”.

Also before anyone says “1st amendment”. Yes, the first amendment allows you to deface or burn YOUR flag, it does not give you the right to destroy someone else’s property.

Wish they had good video – use facial recognition and the losers in the crowd become winners of first in line privileges for deportation.

Second, where the hell were the police?

    Gremlin1974 in reply to 94Corvette. | July 14, 2019 at 9:48 am

    My question is where the hell was the security for the supposedly “Secure Facility”?

    Why was such a crowd allowed to gather without permission on what is supposed to be secure property.

Bitterlyclinging | July 14, 2019 at 7:57 am

The Democrat’s Hell bent rush to lawlessness is leaving America with only two options, surrender and one other.

This keeps getting reported as an “upside down American flag.” They took down and replaced the American flag with a Mexican flag. The ‘upside down” flag is indeed upside down, but it is a defaced “Blue Lives Matter” flag.

    Eskyman in reply to OurUS. | July 14, 2019 at 6:53 pm

    The photo at the top of this post clearly shows a defaced American flag, flying upside down, not a “Blue Lives Matter” flag, though the description does mention one but there’s no photo of it.

    The CBS video clip shows that same defaced & upside down flag flying.

      OurUS in reply to Eskyman. | July 15, 2019 at 5:34 pm

      Do you see any red stripes in the picture of the upside down flag? No. This is what a Blue Lives Matter flag looks like. And THAT is what they flew upside down. Look at the picture above again. They wrote “Abolish Ice” in red paint on it. It is CLEARLY a Blue Lives Matter Flag. They REMOVED and REPLACED the US flag and flew the Blue Lives Matter flag upside down.

      Gremlin1974 in reply to Eskyman. | July 16, 2019 at 1:43 am

      It’s a Blue Lives Matter flag you can see the blue stripe near the bottom of the flag (tops since it is turned upside down).
