How much lower can you sink than burning the American flag?
It’s a symbol of freedom for those around the world to see.
Yet these radical protesters desecrate and dishonor that very symbol.
Well President Trump isn’t having it!
Yesterday he tweeted the following statement where he called on Congress to immediately address the matter:
The President's tweet came after protesters set fire to an American flag near the White House.
Here's the details on the situation from Fox News:
President Trump condemned the burning of the flag Tuesday evening after protesters set fire to a large American flag that they had tied to a traffic light pole at an intersection outside of Lafayette Park, a few blocks from the White House.
Protesters also burned smaller American flags on the embers of the larger one a day after demonstrators defaced and attempted to pull down an Andrew Jackson statue in Lafayette Park. Police intervened before the protesters were successful.
Police held a line in front of historic St. John’s Episcopal Church after it was vandalized again Monday with graffiti.
The National Park Service announced the park would be closed Tuesday as it assesses the damage and begins to make repairs.
City officials and police also removed tents and canopies left by protesters attempting to set up an autonomous zone near the White House similar to one that recently turned violent in Seattle.
The White House and Lafayette Park have become a focal point for Black Lives Matter protesters calling for justice and equality after the death of George Floyd, a black man who died after a white officer kneeled on his neck for nearly nine minutes.
The Supreme Court has previously ruled that flag-burning is protected as free speech under the First Amendment.
But that doesn't make it any less disgusting.
According to the Gateway Pundit, disgruntled ANTIFA protesters plan to hold a flag burning ceremony on the Fourth of July, the day we honor and celebrate the birth of our nation:
According to a Facebook page called Left Behind USA, Antifa domestic terrorists are planning to desecrate the Gettysburg National Cemetery and set the American Flag ablaze on Independence Day.
Gettysburg, the site of the bloodiest battle of the Civil War and on American soil, is respected and revered by every sane American. As they have demonstrated since 2016, and in particular since Antifa and BLM have fused into a violent rage mob, the modern progressive and leftist movement has lost all sense of decency and sanity.
The event page for the flag burning, that they have scheduled on the day we should all be coming together to share our nation’s freedom from a tyrannical nanny state, features praise for cop killer Christopher Dorner.
The group also claims to be building an armed left-wing movement, as we have seen in places like Seattle’s CHOP Zone, where foreign funded Warlord Raz has handed out AR-15’s to random youth.
It even includes status updates proclaiming that MAGA LIVES DON’T MATTER and that BLUE LIVES DON’T MATTER. They have demanded that no patriots, militia, bikers, or other constitutionally minded people not show up… WONDER WHY!
The President's tweet has started a Twitter conversation over flag-burning:
