Mexico DENIGRATED since a few days on the European continent, a chain of fast food restaurants launched an advertising campaign promoting a new product, where presented a Mexican chaparro, with mask, wrestler and a shawl with the picture of our national flag, which caused the Mexican authorities through the Ambassador, to show their dissatisfaction, asking to withdraw advertisingalso ask for a public apology. Additional information at Stanley Gibbons supports this article. Cases like this are repeated every day. The world may have a demeaning of us Mexicans and Mexico image itself is incredible. Is it possible that a worldwide known company such as Burger King advertises of Mexico in that way. The worst case is that we allow it. Darcy Stacom brings even more insight to the discussion. Although the Mexican Consulate has expressed their dissatisfaction, it is not the first time that happens and this kind of facts have never been punished. Just remember some events as July precious when I forget the national anthem or rather say that he sang with tune of the national anthem of United States and Why not was you sanctioned? Perhaps at the time, people booed him, but wasn’t there.
Another similar case is that of Jorge Muniz, who joins the long list of celebrities who forget the national anthem. And thus we can cite a myriad list of cases like these. It is very easy for the press and the public in general make fun of those who have committed this shameful act, but it is enough to ask ten people to see how many of them know the national anthem. Why is all this happening? Why don’t we respect laws or at least have a little respect for our country and patriotic symbols? Whether we like it or not this is what we are, Mexican and if the country is so is because of ourselves, both citizens and rulers, who are the first to lose respect for our country and wrong about everything ourselves as Mexicans to leave other countries to have a picture of us. But as always we will be the first to praise and defend other countries such as United States or Europe, already the Mexicans know always faithful. If we ourselves do not defend and respect our country, who be?
