...In Orange County Thursday, thousands of demonstrators — the vast majority of them Hispanic — held a “Fuck Trump” rally outside of Trump’s first campaign event in the Golden State.

Brandishing Mexican flags and signs bearing language unfit for primetime television, activists were whipped into a violent fury over the mere idea of The Donald speaking in southern California. They assaulted Trump supporters, threw rocks at police and destroyed a few cop cars. (RELATED: Anti-Trump Protesters Smash Police Cars, Stop Traffic At California Rally)

On Friday, protesters flying the Mexican flag once again surrounded the location of the California Republican Convention and prevented Trump from entering via normal means. He had to walk through an out-of-the-way back entrance to deliver his speech...

Arguably, the most important thing to take from the California unrest is not that it is beyond the shadow of a doubt the fault of the protesters for the violence — its the fact they rallied around the Mexican flag...

As Paul Ryan declared in March, America is a nation founded on an idea, not an identity. Thus, everyone here should be a proud American since it requires nothing more than a belief in the idea that success is available to all. (RELATED: Dear Paul Ryan: America Was Actually Founded On An Identity)...

But the resulting protest showed a more honest side to many within the pro-immigration movement. Brandishing Mexican flags and burning American flags sends a clear message as to which national identity the demonstrators prefer.

It’s worth noting that the vast majority of the California demonstrators were young people, an ominous sign that the children of immigrants aren’t assimilating into America’s national fabric. Rather, they are keeping alive their allegiance to the country only a few miles to the south...

Obviously, these anti-Trump protesters enjoy all the opportunities afforded by living in this country. They don’t appear to take issue with the American way of life; otherwise, they’d be back in Mexico.

But they do favor Mexican national identity over American national identity. To them, it represents their family, their heritage and their history. America is just a place where they make money...

In the short-term, the riots will likely bolster Trump’s appeal. In the long-term, it portends to a future where millions of young people think of America with contempt as they cling to their native land and culture.
Imagine our national unity in a country like that.

Does this mean that the American Southwest is literally going to be cut away from the United States? Not necessarily.
