Bikers Rally In Support Of University Of New Mexico Student Peter Lynch, Who Pulled Down An Illegally-Displayed Mexican Flag
A large biker-dominated rally was held at the University of New Mexico (UNM) on Sunday October 7th, 2007, to support a student who ripped down a Mexican flag. Organizers said they believe Peter Lynch removed the flag from a UNM pole as a sign of patriotism. The Mexican flag was flying without an American flag above it. Full story, including video, on KOB Channel 4 in Albuquerque. [Ed. Note: Note the subtle media bias against Lynch by KOB claiming the he "ripped down" the Mexican flag. This subtle bias fuels anti-white racism.]
The incident originally occurred on September 17th, three days after the campus's celebration of Mexican Independence Day. According to an October 3rd story reported by KOB, Peter Lynch, a 30-year old U.S. Air Force veteran, has said that he removed the Mexican flag, which was flying in celebration of Mexican Independence day, because it wasn’t accompanied by an American flag. Normally, the flag would have been lowered by UNM ROTC at the same time they lowered the U.S. flag, but ROTC students neglected to do so this time because they believed a Mexican student organization would do it. In violation of campus flag protocol, the Mexican flag flew unaccompanied by an American flag for three days until Lynch, tired of waiting for the university to take action, removed the flag.
However, the Mexican student organization in question, El Centro de la Raza (which, translated, means "the Center for the Race"), did not address their failure to take responsibility for the Mexican flag. Instead, they chose to play the race card and claim that it has found evidence that Lynch had previously referred to illegal immigrants as “wet-backs” on a public MySpace page. “It is the position of El Centro de la Raza that the acts of Peter Lynch were acts of hate and should be treated as such,” the organization said in a statement. Of course, the term "wetback" has no racist connotation, making no reference to any specific race; however, since the preponderance of "wetbacks" is Latino, the Latino lobbies like to justify illegal immigration by Latinos by characterizing any criticism of illegal immigration as "racist". There are NO KNOWN prominent Latino lobbies that condemn illegal immigration.
According to the UNM Daily Lobo newspaper, two other Latino lobbies also piled on Peter Lynch. The New Mexico League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) have asked state and federal officials to investigate the incident as a hate crime. In addition, Mabel Gonzalez, president of the Mexican Student Association, also characterized the flag removal as a "hate crime".
However, those who attended Sunday's rally defended Lynch. “It doesn’t involve a hate crime, in my opinion,” organizer Paul Caputo said. “Everyone takes advantage of every little situation and to try and make it ethnic. What’s important now is that we all realize we’re just Americans.” Many attendees at the rally also left financial donations to help pay for Lynch's legal expenses.
Peter Lynch has been formally charged with criminal damage to property. At his arraignment hearing on Wednesday October 3rd, he pleaded not guilty and his jury trial will take place in November. If convicted, he could get six months in jail and a $500 fine.

There appears to be no connection between this incident and the more popularly-acclaimed October 2nd incident in Reno, NV, where Jim Broussard removed a Mexican flag which was flying above an American flag. Broussard has not yet been charged with a crime in this incident.
Commentary: The increasing willingness of individual citizens to step up to the plate and commit individual acts of patriotism reflects the absolute unwillingness of the federal government to do its job and protect this nation. While our troops are bogged down half a world away fighting on behalf of oil and Israel, Latinos continue to invade and degrade America under the title of "reconquista". Corporate America aids and abets this treason by knowingly hiring illegals to shortchange American workers. Employers further victimize American workers by increasingly requiring that American workers also be fluent in Spanish as a condition of employment, even in industries not requiring frequent contact with foreign tourists. These employers commit economic treason against America by promoting reverse colonialism.
Patriotic Americans must continue to commit acts of resistance after the manner of Peter Lynch and Jim Broussard. Words are no longer sufficient.
