Disgusting

The story:

On a balmy early Saturday summer evening, the U.S soccer team played for a prestigious championship in a U.S. stadium … and was smothered in boos.

Even its national anthem was filled with the blowing of air horns and bouncing of beach balls.

Most of these hostile visitors didn’t live in another country. Most, in fact, were not visitors at all, many of them being U.S. residents whose lives are here but whose sporting souls remain elsewhere.

 You may note, if you follow the link, that not once does the author characterize the participants of this disgrace as “US Citizens”, but only “US Residents”.  At least he was technically honest, if not exactly forthcoming.

But what really got me was this part:

“I love this country, it has given me everything that I have, and I’m proud to be part of it,” said Victor Sanchez, a 37-year-old Monrovia resident wearing a Mexico jersey. “But yet, I didn’t have a choice to come here, I was born in Mexico, and that is where my heart will always be.”

Excuse me?

The country of your birth was so screwed up you admittedly had no choice but to flee (probably illegally), you recognize that you had no future there and came to the US to survive and even thrive.  And yet your “heart will always be” with the country you had to flee?

Are you stupid?

Rhetorical question.

Our country is being destroyed from the inside out.

  1. "But yet, I didn't have a choice to come here

    But Sir, you have a choice to stay here or not. I highly suggest if you love Mexico so much that you move there.

    Maybe you can survive the drug wars there for a year or two.

  2. I don't know this guy's life history but it is likely he was telling the truth. So many illegal immigrants bring their little kids into the US; do we blame the kids for something their parents did?

    That said, that kind of behavior has no excuse whether you consider yourself an American or not. I wouldn't go to a soccer game in Germany and boo the German national team. That's rude.
