The "Save Our State" / "Minutemen" / Aryan Nations / National Vanguard / Stormfront / et al. mentality isn't solely the venue of racist hate mongers standing on street corners and screaming.
Meanwhile, in Dayton, TN, conservative activist June Griffin has been doing her best to show the world what makes America truly great.
Last week Griffin was arrested and is now "facing misdemeanor charges of theft, vandalism and harassment and felony charges of civil rights violations," according to the Chattanoogan.
Griffin was apparently driven into an apoplectic rage after visiting a local Hispanic grocery store and noticing a small Mexican flag in the window.
She stated, "I went in and there was nothing English in the store. There was one man who could not speak a word of English."
She said she was outraged about the Mexican flag, saying it was an "act of war" and it "insulted my citizenship."
Ms. Griffin said as the Hispanic man watched, she tore off the flag from where it was suctioned to the building and left with it.
She said, "Foreigners should learn English or leave."
Apparently Griffin has been trying to get the local government to ban all flags except Old Glory (and the Tennessee state flag, of course).
I can see her point.
After all, how else are we supposed to remember that America is the land of the free if the government won't lock up people who don't fly the right flag?
