Outrage Alert! Activists Promote Event to Burn American Flags

Rush Limbaugh predicted liberals would come after the American flag.  Lo and behold – he was right. We must all share this story today with our fellow Americans because the mainstream media won’t.

An activist group is planning to burn American flags in Fort Greene Park in response to the shooting deaths of nine church-goers in Charleston earlier this month — and they’re asking attendees to bring their own flags to burn. How can this act of violence possibly help?

This group is attempting to hijack the Charleston tragedy and SHAME ON THEM. Their vile acts will only serve to disgrace the memory of those who were murdered in Charleston – not honor them. Burning the American flag is a HUGE mistake that is certain to backfire and will not create any sympathy among the general public.

Just so you know what to look out for, the group Disarm NYPD — which is planning the event for July 1 at 7:30 p.m. at the corner of Washington Park and Myrtle Avenue in Fort Greene Park — said the American flag represents the same history as the Confederate flag which has been at the center of debate since the June 17 shootings.

“The Confederate flag has long been a symbol of white supremacy, slavery, and Jim Crow,” the group wrote on a Facebook page for the event. “However, the Confederacy lost the war the American flag has unceasingly, from the first day it was ever hung, represented the exact same thing.”

I disagree. Completely.


We hope the NYPD takes this group up on their public invite given it is against New York City parks rules to “kindle, build, maintain, or use a fire in any place, portable receptacle, or grill except in places provided by the Parks Department and so designated by sign or by special permit,” according to the NYC Department of Parks & Recreation’s website. Not that the rules matter much to these folks.

As  coincidence would have it … I was planning a “Burn Your Welfare Check” event in the park that very same day! (But, I will not stoop to their level.)

Neither the NYPD nor Parks Department immediately responded to requests for comment. Share this story and alert your family and friends – we patriots must stick together!
