This person had a better vantage point than me, so I'll post this video rather than the one I made.

On the left you can see crazed leftists/Muslims with a "No to the Toma/No to Fascism" banner.

The essence of the ceremony is a kind of incantation in which the person with the banner of Castile utters a set form of words in a ritual manner and the people present give ritual responses. The flag is then waved from the balcony. This happens three times. I saw a beautiful woman teaching the words and the correct responses to her small daughter yesterday before the ceremony. This tradition isn't going to die out any time soon.

You and your people didn't know What freedom was like when Islam spread and flourished in Europe. Your ancestors were slaves to the church and to their fudal lords. Unfortunately, you learned civilization from Muslims and destroyed their books as soon as you got in..such barbarians.. until this day you are a slave to your fudal lords in the form of banks your a slave to your desires and hatred...
