Woman confronts neighbor over Mexican flag

Did she go too far? A woman perturbed that her neighbor was flying the Mexican flag in her yard is receiving criticism for the way she handled the situation. Was her reaction warranted?

PAT: Local political activist was upset by seeing the Mexican flag flying in a front yard of one of her neighbors. And so she went up and confronted the homeowner on video. And it was a video she shot on her smart phone. And then she posted it on youtube and she said, hi, is that a Mexican flag in your front yard? And the person whose home it was didn't speak any English. So they didn't -- respond. And then she said, you know we live in America, right?

This is the United States. So why are you flying a Mexican flag in your front yard. So then she posted it and apparently that got the attention of a bunch of people who didn't appreciate what she did.

JEFFY: Oh, no.

PAT: And local Los Angeles news went out to talk to her. Spoke to her and the homeowner she confronted, and found out the woman doesn't speak any English and then this -- this woman confronted her a third time, I guess, and she said, this is America. Maybe you can move to Mexico if you want to fly your Mexican flag. Does that make sense?

(laughing).

PAT: Does that make sense? You know, that you'd move to Mexico and fly your flag there if you love it so much? Does that make sense?

(laughing).

PAT: A nice way to be really nasty.

JEFFY: That is a really nice way to be nasty.

PAT: That makes sense, right? If you love Mexico so much, just go back there and fly it there. That makes sense, right?

(laughing).

PAT: But apparently the homeowners didn't understand why she was making such a big deal out of it. The husband --

JEFFY: They're just flying their flag.

PAT: The husband says I don't think it's offensive because the flag doesn't do anything.

JEFFY: Thank you.

PAT: He said he and his anytime never meant to hurt anyone. They were just celebrating their Mexican heritage.

JEFFY: Thank you.

PAT: I've got mixed emotions about this because when you take the vow of citizenship, you pledge allegiance to the United States. To your new country. And you sort of disavow your old one. You don't have to leave your heritage behind. But you know, your allegiance should now be here because this is where you're earning your bread and butter, right?

JEFFY: I didn't read the details of this story, but we're positive that this person is an American citizen now?

PAT: Well, I don't know if they've actually become citizens or not.

JEFFY: Okay.

PAT: I don't know, but they're living here. And you know, I don't know. It's just -- it's that we're not --

JEFFY: I know.

PAT: We're not a melting pot anymore and we don't melt together to become one. And to me, that is kind of a problem. Now, I don't think you need to go up and confront people and say, 'hey, why don't you go back to Mexico if you like your Mexican flag so much.' Does that make sense?

(laughing).

PAT: But on the other hand, I'm not sure she deserved -- the woman who did it was fired from her job because of it.

JEFFY: Yeah?

PAT: Because of the uproar over this video she posted on youtube, which is stupid, if you're going to act like this, don't put it on youtube. It won't turn out well for you in the end. Yeah, her real estate company fired her.

JEFFY: Wow.

PAT: Yeah. I mean, that sucks, too. Now, I don't -- it's not great what she did. But it's not -- I mean, stupid to fire somebody for that.

JEFFY: Yeah.

PAT: But it's -- you know, it's -- this is a difficult question. And it's just better for people if we become one? If we become part of a whole? It's better for them, it's better for us. They go further. America goes further. That's kind of been -- you know, when people say, well, it's a nation of immigrants. It was built by immigrants. Yeah, but immigrants who came here legally for one thing. And immigrants who forsook their old country and devoted their time and allegiance to this one. And taught their children a love for this one. Taught their children and immersed them in the language. When my grandmother came here from Ireland, she wouldn't allow Gaelic to be spoken. That was her native tongue. She wouldn't allow it to be spoken. We're in America now. We're going to speak English. I -- you know, everybody doesn't have to forsake their native tongue. But you should certainly learn English if you're going to live here. Kind of makes sense, doesn't it? You will go further. You will do better. Your ceiling is much, much higher. And if -- like for instance, if I move to Spain and I don't speak Spanish, I'm not going to go anywhere because there's very few jobs that I can do and do well in Spain without knowing the language. So does that make sense? So I'm not saying you need to take your Mexican flag and go back to Mexico. Does that make sense? But I am saying, you know, it does help when you -- when you become part of us. But that's -- it's wrong to say that now.

JEFFY: Listen, wouldn't it be nice to just go back to Mexico and fly your Mexican flag?

PAT: I'm not saying that. She did and that's a problem. But is it enough of a problem that you fire her?

JEFFY: Come on.

PAT: I don't think so. It's too bad.

Former Minneapolis police Officer Derek Chauvin is facing several charges for his role in the death of George Floyd. But attorney Andrew Branca, who specializes in self-defense law, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to explain exactly what must be proven in order for those charges to stand.

Did Chauvin act reasonably in the context of the entire situation? Were his actions directly responsible for Floyd's death, or could it be blamed on factors beyond Chauvin's control?

Branca also argued that the prosecutor committed misconduct serious enough for a potential appeal, how political tension makes it "impossible" for a fair trial, why he would vote not guilty, and what sentence Chauvin is facing if the actual jury disagrees.

From food and job shortages to the prices of building materials "skyrocketing," the world is currently moving into what could be the "perfect storm" for politicians to push for a universal basic income, explained Glenn Beck on the radio program.

"We really need to look at the economy and be prepared for what is coming," Glenn said. "I feel like my job is to warn you of the things that are coming and, when I can, give you ways to navigate around. But at least so you can hear the warning and decide yourself what you're going to do with that."

Glenn explained that now, for the first time, there is a shortage of starter homes and building supplies just as increasing numbers of millennials are in the market. Also, analysts are predicting that shortages of food items and products such as pork, polystyrene, and chlorine could send prices soaring. Then there's the matter of unemployment, kicked off by the COVID-19 pandemic and likely to worsen because of the technological revolution, there are going to be fewer and fewer jobs for people to do.

"We are creating this perfect storm, right now, where universal basic income is going to be embraced by people," Glenn warned. "It's just this nasty cycle that we're beginning, and we're watching it unfold right in front of us."

More than 100 business leaders and CEOs from some of the world's largest corporations recently met during a Zoom meeting to discuss how they can band together to fight "election integrity laws," like the voting law recently passed in Georgia.

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck explained how this government-corporation partnership is not only proof of fascism, but it is also demonstrative of how our lives will be under The Great Reset: government and large corporations will work together to set the rules, and the freedoms of the individual American will be squashed.

"I want you to understand ... everything that they have ever said about, 'oh, it's a conspiracy theory' about The Great Reset, you can throw that in the garbage now," Glenn began. "Something happened this weekend that is absolutely unprecedented. I have done this job, for ... I don't even know how many years, almost 50 years, and I've never seen anything like this.

"People that were on the [Zoom] call, they talked about potential ways to show how they opposed the legislation, including ... delaying investments in states. That's blackmail," Glenn continued.

"So these corporations, they're going to act as a — what? A secondary government? ... I don't know. I didn't elect the CEO of Merck. Did you?" he said.

"Corporations [are] openly meeting and coordinating efforts to change laws," Glenn added. "This is fascism, guys! Fascism is when government and corporations work hand in hand. That is fascism."

A virus has escaped the university labs and is super-spreading through our culture. It's called Critical Race THEORY and what used to be a fringe topic in the academic world is now a dangerous Marxist REALITY infecting our public schools where students are taught the U.S. is a "parasitic system" based on the "invasion" of "white male settlers."

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how some teachers are being instructed to "cash in on kids' inherent empathy" in order to train them to become "activist intellectuals," starting as early as first grade.

CRT is an absolute toxin to America and Glenn warns that in just one generation the Constitution, freedom, and true equality will be totally destroyed. Yet, any opposition to the spread of this disease is shouted down as racism and bigotry. If Critical Race Theory is not already in your local school curriculum, it will be soon.

Joined by Asra Nomani, Vice President for Strategy and Investigations at Parents Defending Education, Glenn arms you with the facts about CRT so you can stand up to this tyranny in your community.
