"U-S-A, U-S-A, U-S-A!" In San Diego? WOW! Ugly From Coast To Coast!

For the past six 
years the Right-wing "U-S-A , U-S-A, U-S-A" Chant has grown to rival the Confederate Army's "rebel yell."  The chant more often emanates from high-end baby boomers with the first inkling another is about to speak out against conservative ideology, or is about to step outside of GOP lockstep robotic-ism. The chanters are intolerant of dissent and they react with drowning-out any outside the paradigm acts.

Drowning out dissent has become an existential behavioral reality for American conservatives. They complain the Left is working to force progressive ideology into their "Apple Pie" and "Just hand the football to the referee" paradigm, yet we see far more forced ideology from conservative America and the Right's tailor-made and patented SCOTUS. 

"U-S-A, U-S-A, U-S-A!" 

If you need an illustration of my point, I offer a classic. Watch as the first Boomers rise to drown-out the town-hall hecklers. Cruz handled himself well and as civil as any professional speaker. Yet, he seemed to relish in the "U-S-A" chant reaped upon the dissenters. For me, he appeared as, "See you guys have unleashed my ravenous dogs." 

Heckling is the ultimate of rude, especially if one considers the preparation and practice associated with public speaking. However, I see a marked difference in tolerance of hecklers by progressive crowds than reception from conservative crowds (who are without exception white and older).

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) was heckled during an anti-Obamacare event in Dallas, Texas, on Tuesday night. As the senator addressed the crowd, a pair of individuals began chanting: "You have health care, so can we!" 
However, Cruz didn't criticize them or ignore them. Instead, the Texas Republican thanked the men for "sharing" their views and noted the importance of the First Amendment. He later agreed with them -- sort of. 
The men were eventually drowned out by the crowd's chants of "USA!" 
Number one, I agree with them," Cruz went on to say of the two hecklers. "They should have health care, and Obamacare is causing more and more people struggling to climb the economic ladder to lose their health care."
The chant along with a disgusting exhibition of American conservatism manifest today as a organized protest against Border Patrol efforts to move border crashing immigrants from of detention centers. An effort to provide a more humane existence, albeit it temporary, for people who have voluntarily placed themselves into tenuous resettlement predicament was met with an ugly exhibition of Americanism.  While the community was not properly alerted of the immigrant movement (resettlement), resorting to what came across as a racist and nationalist exhibition was simply "ugly."  Before The Raw Story piece, I must ask..." What if the community was about to receive a bus load of Canadian?"  Of course, it is a false reality because no one form Canada is fighting to migrate to the United States, but the scenario stimuli conjurers images of "no formal protest."  I will comfortably assert the "U-S-A" Chant would not flow like the Confederate rebel yell. 
Some are saying this is scene not indicative of American values. This is American values! When do we accept that American values are regressing to times long past, and we rare doing nothing to reverse the slide.

More than 100 demonstrators forced buses full of immigrants to be rerouted from Murrieta, California nearly 70 miles south while hurling derisive chants toward them, KFMB-TV reported on Tuesday. 
The protesters chanted “U-S-A, U-S-A,” and “Go back home” at the caravan, which was originally headed to a U.S. Customs and Border Protection processing facility in Murrieta carrying 140 undocumented immigrants, many of them women and children, who had entered the country after journeying from Central America. Federal officials put them on the buses after they were flown into San Diego from Texas earlier in the day. 
“Send them back to their countries,” one unidentified male protester told KFMB. “Send them back to where they came from.”
