Two guys ran onto the field during a major league baseball game, waving the Mexican flag to protest Arizona's immigration law.  They were soon detained, and the crowd started chanting, "USA, USA".

I can understand wanting to challenge this law which has caused so much controversy, but you're not going to gain any converts by interrupting America's favorite pasttime. And to do so by waving the flag of another country... well, you're just adding fuel to the fire of the most paranoid and xenophobic members of society. Not smart. And not surprising that the crowd reacted with patriotism.
