No, more like anti-American, hence gets to return to the country where he has citizenship.

Ignore RichH, Mark, he's just a troll looking for an emotional response and engaging in name calling. As someone who's father and four uncles are honored at that site, I do not view this petty criminal action as political in nature. The richHs in this town take every opportunity to turn every action into an inarticulate rant against political opponents.
