I would feel threatened

I know I would feel threatened as an American if I were being followed by a large group of obviously hostile group who were verbally intimidating! Just for carrying our nations flag. Of course, we don't know what transpired prior to the edited clip. Maybe he was being very verbal prior to this. The story states what he was promoting but I'm curious what these young people might promote as their agenda?

Yeah, I saw the video, and witnessed the "danger signs" of a pending attack--the advancing and the facial hostility.

I just saw those topics being discussed in a new issue of a survival magazine.

I just read the story in the link but there is no video, it was either taken down or I'm doing something wrong.

If he threw the first punch then he wasn't defending himself.

One on one that would be true, but if you are about to be set upon by a group, pre-emption is your best move. Hard to judge from the available info but it seems to me that the guy with the flag was not (quite) justified. Seems more like they were trying to provoke him into doing something.

I'm betting they wouldn't confront him if he were carrying a the Mexican flag or had a La Raza banner. I do think he was doing this to try to get and film the exact type of reaction he ended up getting. OK, maybe not the knife....

Go to Mexico and harass someone carrying the Mexican flag and see what happens.

It ain't the size of the knife, it's the edge.

I have a 2.5 inch Mantis Tough Tony that will not only puncture a car door (it's made from CPM-440V) but polished out somewhere between 300,000 and 375,000, by questimate.

Perfect to "re-accommodate" your aggressor's femoral artery.
