Cinco de Mayo – A New National Holiday

45 seconds in:

It’s just kind of disrespectful that they would do that on this day.  I mean, we don’t go around on Fourth of July wearing red, white and green and saying ‘viva Mexico’, because that’s disrespectful.

Of course you don’t.  You live in the United States!  The Fourth of July is the Independence day of the country you live in!  It’s the day we celebrate the Independence of the country that gives you shelter from the gang wars in Mexico!  And Americans are not obliged to ‘respect’ another country’s Independence Day, even saying patriotism is disrespectful.

The worst part about this is similar to the worst part about Islam’s claim to immunity from criticism.  There is only one nationality that insists on making everyone celebrate the independence of the country they immigrated from.  Mexicans.  Only the people who jumped the fence to the south try it.  The only country besides the US who’s holidays are nearly considered National Holidays in the US is the same country that pours millions of illegal immigrants in.  No other nationality would even dream of having their homeland’s holiday celebrated here.
