You say its the property damage...This is over patriotism.

Just wondering, is there any harsher penalty for damaging/vandalizing the Wailing Wall compared to other property?

As in, there is no existing dictionary definition of "over-patriotism."


Yes there is. It's called jingoism. Literally.

"extreme patriotism, especially in the form of aggressive or warlike foreign policy."

White Texan male. But why would race matter?

I thought that a Mexican would want to desecrate a popular memorial to American bravery and valor in a war that the Mexicans ultimately lost.

I said there is no dictionary definition for "over patriotism" in quotation marks for a reason. Jingoism is defined as "extreme patriotism," making it similar, not identical.

patriotism

one calls it patriotism, the other calls it nationalism...
it's all the same, you are what you once thought of as "the evil".
