UPDATE, September 24, 2014: According to Pocho.com, Tressy Capps is no longer with Coldwell Banker. Capps has also reached out to us to see if she can appear on our live radio show. She plans to join us this Sunday night at 10pmET. Capps said that she was not representing Coldwell Banker when she made the video.
In addition, Capps restored her video (original posted this August) on her own personal YouTube.
According to her channel, Capps said the whole thing turned into a positive: “Today while driving thru Ontario, Ca. on Benson Avenue I observed this giant mexican flag. I think the dialogue with the occupant went well despite the language barrier. UPDATE- They put up an American flag in compliance with the law. A peaceful and pleasant exchange resulted in a positive result. God Bless America and the American Flag.”
To our dearest friends at Pocho.com, we salute you for making sure this video of an Ontario, California, realtor (a local politician as well, see below) will forever be etched on the Internet. For the rest of the story and how Pocho.com got the attention of Coldwell Banker, go here.
BTW, the realtor in the video? Her name is Tressy Capps. She is running for Fontana City Council and this summer, Capps organized a protest in front of a Catholic church housing migrants families. LR ran a video of some protesters at that church in California, but it doesn’t appear that someone who looked liked Capps was in that particular video.
Funng thing is shes mexican too.
So not only is she racist, she’s totally stupid for posting a video. WTF? She didn’t think there’d be consequences? Just for *that* she should’ve been fired. BTW, I keep reading her name as Tessy Crapps. lmfao
I wonder whether she would have been “offended” by some other flag …like the stars & bars ,,, I’m sure there are plenty of those on display in the United States, honoring the single greatest act of rebellion and treason against the Republic.

Go ahead fools, make her famous. A lot of people agree with her. I would NEVER disrespect a foreign country by going there and flying my flag in THEIR country. How is there not ONE Mexican that understands that?
This is America, one flag, one nation, one language. You don’t like it leave the country.
Being patriotic is not racist. STFU you race baiters.
To be a citizen you must denounce your loyalties to all other countries. If anyone doesn’t want to do that then they can leave. Has nothing to do with race you anti-American racists.
You my sir are wrong we don’t have a national language.
America is not a country ….is a continent thank you and if foreign flags bother yall well start with the Irish one has well ….
She needs a man to make her happy.
She felt disrespected, REALLY… I think it was disrespectful for her to go up to that woman’s door, on her property, film her without her permission and then try to ridicule her!! If you did not like it, keep driving and keep your eyes on the road!! She obviously had nothing better to do with her time.
We need to let Fontana residents not to vote for her.
Wth Mexicans were here before you! I am White and don’t agree with your racism! Get a life already
Bullshit!!! You leave whites came after Indians and Mexicans . Research before you speak
My children are Mexican American, and also American Indian. Srew all you people that say that the Mexican flag is wrong. We fly both. My children will no there Heritage. We were all born American. Black white purple red we are all Americans get a life stop downing every other person because they want to fly their flag worry about your own life and not others
Hispanic racist anti-American agenda. This is America not Mexico. Denounce your Mexico loyalty or get out.
JustinHardman THIS is the United States Of America.. theres Latin America, Central america, south America Too.. ohh they dont teach that here in Geography. i forgot. and This is North Mexico, hence, California, Arizona, Tejas, nuevo Mexico, Oregon..al Mexican land. still disputed. I was Never GIVEN to the US.. they just built a fence a nd claimed its for US with all the inhabitants ALREADY living here. how they going to go back to Mexico when they NEVER left?? the us just claimed the land.. with a piece of paper. Mexico just never fought back . but Mexicans living in this side OF YOUR NEW BORDER LINE still call them selves Mexicans. KKK XENOPHOBES.
JustinHardman u forgot.. South America, Central America. retarded Blind “European immigrant red neck”. put your Confederate flag away.
JosueGuerrero JustinHardman Hey Josue… Using your logic…Why don’t you give Mexico back to the Aztecas?
Sherrieg THis is why your poeple are not doing well. You spend too much time looking back and not facing future.
Sherrieg Nothing wrong with Mexicans who decide to become Americans. But you can’t have it both ways Sherrie. It’s not racist. It’s about preserving this country.
pancho villa71 Wow. You sound racist Pancho
Last time I checked, the mexican military got their ass’ kicked by the US military… And lost their land. That is why there is a border. And like it or not that border fence will remain. If Mexico is so great, why don’t American citizens immigrate into Mexico in astronomical numbers instead of the other way around?
AprilBelasco She was calm, respectful and simply voicing a question. More Americans need to step up and ask questions.
Johnnyboy619 I don’t agree with your tone but the fact is Mexico never could have produced the same economy had they still been in control of Texas and California. That said, either you’re Mexican or you’re American and these folks need to make a choice.
rosandy Wow you are so educated Rosandy.
AndreaHansen What language was our constitution and declaration of independence written in?
elpaizadeamerica Elpaiz no need to nit pick. Most people simply connect American with the United States. But if it really makes you feel better simply go back and replace the word American with the United States. I think Justin’s point still stands although not worded in the best way.
JosueGuerrero JustinHardman Wow Josue. You sound like a “Mexican Red neck” with that kind of talk. I guess you have permission to hate but no one else does?
Side Mahma Amen
RobertJeantet Let’s not scramble the eggs. The issue in the southwest is atrocious and Americans are simply fed up with this engineered influx. Is this what you choose for your tax dollars? I would rather see my tax dollars paying for roads, helping Americans get back to work and making veterans hospitals the best they can be. Shame on you Robert for trying to change the point.
LauraGonzalez2 Not stupid. I would call it intelligent, thought out . Here we are talking about it and you watched the video, right? It’s called viral marketing and it’s the best thing that can happen for Americans.
judy2763 An American with Mexican heritage is not a Mexican Judy
My father is German and my mother is Mexican. Do I fly a Germany or Mexico flag in my front yard for everyone to see? Hell no! Do I fly an American flag in my front yard for all to see? Hell yes! Because this is America!
Sherrieg Race, no one ever mentioned race till you did. Racists bastard.
JosueGuerrero JustinHardman Your a racist,nothing I stated says anything about race. All you do is spew hate with your comments about race. I am about country. YOU ARE A RACIST!
I am German and the only use I have for the American Flag is to wipe my ass with it. Stars and wipes!
In Germany we will happy welcome hard working Mexicans and if they are my neighbors I hang a Mexican Flag out for sympathy and respect for the country and their long and astonishing culture, something America never had,. A flag means nothing, it is more what a country achieves, what would America achieve without Mexicans and Mexico? Where would America be without Germanic technology inventions? You would not have a phone, the internet, the Car, , MP3 the computer or sending rockets to the moon or fly a space-shuttle which uses technology that the Germans invented 70 years ago.
@Johnnyboy619 – I am happy to hear that the Nazis now moved to America and creating children like you.
we never needed the Nazis and don’t claim benefits in Germany over your fathers citizenship.
And you guys keep your soldiers out of the wars in the world, they are pussies anyway, otherwise they would come back with post traumatic stress disorder, and whine in all the internet forums about that no one understand them…..
Take an example on Mexico, the only wars Mexico had were those defending them-self, but not invading Countries distant away. And take you fucking troops out of Germany and stop spying on us and steel our technology, if you don’t have the brains to invent anymore, at least pay for it.
Viva Mexico! I will see where I can buy a Mexican Flag today.
Yes. Yes i am racist thanks to your local kkk..i am against Ignorant ppl who choose to turn a blind eye. To the corruption and injustice. These manifest destiny asholes. Called Patriots. Did to the Mexican south west .blind patrotism. And xenophoboa..is the reason i fight idiots. Who hide behind a US flag. Immigrants build this nation..and continue to pick your fruits while being raped on a daoiy basis. My mom and dad both with college degrees picked grapes.to earn a green card..already had a doctorate degree. ill be damned if i let ANY European immigrant tell me .. leave my land. That’s moronic. DONT claim America as yours..your KKK ppl are just better at deFrauding the true owners of this land..stealing Mexican land That’s the Anglo American way. I live in the city of the virgin saint of Los Angeles of California north Mexico. Where do you live?
JosueGuerrero So another words your declaring war on Americans for a war that was lost a hundred years ago? All you do is spew hate, you are a hate filled racist with a warlike agenda to attack all Americans. We have laws, anyone who want to come here is to obey our laws. Local KKK? Do you just make up stuff in your head? America belongs to American’s, not any other country. Raped on a daily basis? You must be a drug addict or something because all your doing is making up lies. There is no rape epidemic. I am not a immigrant, I was born here and even if I was I would come here legally and obey American laws. So your parents picked grapes to earn a green card, so what. If they already had a Doctorate they would be smart enough to come to the country legally. More lies on your part. Do you have any good in you at all? YOU OBVIOUSLY DON’T STAND FOR AMERICA. I AM FIGHTING FOR AMERICA, NOT A RACE, A COUNTRY.
JosueGuerrero The Germans did this very same thing in the 1920s and American’s didn’t stand for it. And we will not stand for it now. Don’t fly other countries flags in America.
In 1983. There was no other legal way for Mexican to migrate.other than the bracero program. Both my parents worked picking grapes to qualify..or else there’s a 10 eatinh period. When we got our 1st house. My dad worked 3 jobs. 7 days a week. We saw buning crosses up in the Verdugo Hills. I went to summerschool @ verdugo hills hs. Gound out my kind wasn’t welcomed” got jumped a few times. Both wating for thr bus and between classes.thank god my cousins are all boxers..i a have a really tough chin and great upper cut. They dont burn crosses up there because tgey burned down half the mountain..retards. but yes i am..biased to most whites. My DI at Camp Pendelton said i would fail and quit in his Marines Corps..i proved him wrong..hes the 1st openly white pride guy i ever respected..because when i popped his lip..hr broke my nose..and knocked me out cold..no one in 9 years had ever knocked me out..but i didnt quit..yes. your ppl have raped my ppl..but ee will have the last laugh. Oh btw Mexico is in America too. Retard. Learn Geography. I declaring war on bigots xenophobes racist white supremacists and undercover kkk. Like you. Like like the war” for iraqs independence? That was just another invasion. Nobody fought back..i was there.
Mexicans are central Americans. Did you not LEARN anything in school? USA has been taking over lands and toppling presidents..placing thir own us friendly dictators until they..turn on the us.. fidrl Castro..manuel Noriega huho chavez..etc. to contol trade and exports. All over the Américas. Just look it up. Spreading peace all over these poor countries..nah All BS.
Aztecs died long ago..but yes i agree send a Pilgrims and their inbred decendants back to Europe too. They have done nothing but destroy this continent. AZTEC BUILT BESUTIFUL PYRAMIDS. THE NUMBER ZERO. Pilgrims brought diseases greed and death to natives and nature.
fire4ever I am American and the only use I have for a German is to suck my dick , shut the fuck up you defeated kraut.
And as defeated scum , we will keep our soldiers deep inside you to tear you apart in case you Germans get back to your evil ways.
Kill a kraut earn a metal.
I fully support this lady , those 2 cockroaches should be deported immediately .We can’t allow our nation to be filled with those who have no loyalty to our nation.
Its cockkkroaches like you. BLIND ALLEGIANCE. TO THE KKK no different than Hitler and the NAZIs..this nation was built and still runs on immigrant power. But gues what..we are multiplying like “cockroaches” there is Nothing you can Do to stop us.. LoL. la Cucaracha invasion is coming. Hide your wives hide your Hot Daughters!
This guy is a prime example of a tool. JosueGuerrero
No Mexicans ever lived in Ontario or Fontana, Americans built those towns. So why do you hate the USA?

JustinHardman sounds KKKish to me.. my people were here 1st..pilgrim. you go back to Europe. Illegal-immigrant.
Are Mexicans also racist for having a country and keeping unassimilated foreigners out?
No, and neither is this woman. You are the racist – against Americans.
USAmerican100 Sherrieg USA AMERIKKKAN100 your stupid a white person named a city in Spanish? “FONTANA”? lol The area that is now Ontario was part of the lands used for hunting and foraging by the semi-nomadic http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tongva_people Serrano (Gabrieleño) Indians, who were known to roam as far south as the western San Bernardino Mountains. At the time of Mexican and later of American settlement, active Native American settlements were scattered across the entire valley. Remains of a Serrano village were discovered[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Manual_of_Style/Dates_and_numbers#Chronological_items] in the neighboring foothills of the present-day city of http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Claremont,_California.[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Citation_needed]

JosueGuerrero USAmerican100 Sherrieg
So what, Gabrieleno Indians are still here, are rich from their gaming casino, and are USA citizens. Guess you have never been to their Pow Wow, the USA flag is in front.
Plus moron Spanish people and names are from Europe, they are white also.
USAmerican100 : so if Spanish people are mixed with Americans (native) they just happen to be in southern CA.. what is your Problem? They are still Americans..thats the whole point.. we created and have been living all over the south west for 100’s of years ..where do you get off trying to Tell Who can and cannot be here? My grandfather help buld the 5 fwy and Dodger stadium and the 99 fwy when the asked for volunteers…1940’s -1950’s hes still not an English speaker..why because hes never Needed English.in Los Angeles county..THE PRIMARY LANGUAGE IS SPANISH. Why do you dummies learn a second language instead? we are Stil American..just NOT Anglo-KKK American. get used to it.!!
JackNelson pancho villa71 OH and after all these Xenophobic posts. You are going to CLAIM ,,youre not A Racist- under cover-KKK member? you dont have to own the white hood to be a racist you know. actions speak louder than words.
Americans are citizens of the United States of America, nobody else is.
Millions of Americans like me living in LA County don’t know any Spanish, English is the primary language as you show in your posts.
