Title: 'Burn that rag!' Activists to desecrate the flag at Trump July Fourth rally

Sparks will fly in Washington as activists torch an American flag to protest President Trump's July Fourth "Salute to America," which Trump claims will be one of the largest events in city history.

Longtime flag-burning activist Gregory "Joey" Johnson of the Revolutionary Communist Party told the Washington Examiner, "I'm going to be there in D.C.," and "that rag of empire and oppression is going to burn."

Johnson is well known for winning a 1989 Supreme Court case that invalidated state laws against flag burning. He declined to share the time and location of next week's protest or say how many other activists will participate.

Trump will appear at the Lincoln Memorial at 6:30 p.m., ahead of fireworks at dusk. Last week, Trump endorsed a proposed constitutional amendment that would recriminalize flag burning, overriding the Supreme Court. Trump tweeted the amendment was a "no brainer!"

There's no reason to doubt Johnson's seriousness. He and about a dozen fellow members of the Revolutionary Communist Party staged high-profile flag burnings in 2016 at the Republican and Democratic conventions. This month, he won a $225,000 settlement from Cleveland, Ohio, over his arrest protesting Trump's nomination.

The group that aided Johnson at the 2016 conventions announced the burnings in advance. At both protests, outraged veterans attempted to stop him, saying they would not tolerate disrespect to the flag. The communist group chanted "burn that rag!"

Johnson told the Washington Examiner he considers himself an internationalist and supports a vision for global communism.

Trump wants to turn the traditionally nonpartisan Washington celebrations "into a fascist extravaganza of 'make America white again,' xenophobia, jingoism, and American chauvinism. And this is all dangerous to humanity," Johnson said.

"I'll be in town to make it happen and to help expose Trump's fascist agenda with the message that America was never great. America was built on slavery, genocide, and war," Johnson said. "Instead of trying to go back to some dreamland America that never existed, we need to go forward to a world without America and everything it stands for."

Johnson said he's upset about many recent Trump policies. He's angered by escalating tensions with Iran and detention of people who cross the border illegally.

The activist said the flag is "flying over the pens of mass incarceration, filled with 2 million people" and over the "thousands of refugees in dog pens" along the Mexican border.

"And yeah, it's the flag of this shameless fascist jackal Trump," he said.

Johnson traces his political radicalism to his time as an Army brat in the late '60s in West Germany, where at age 12 he said he met anti-Vietnam War soldiers while selling copies of the Stars and Stripes newspaper in mess halls.

"Vets are not all of one mind," he said.

Though socialism is ascendant among Democrats, Johnson says he's not encouraged by presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, a Vermont senator, or Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the New York congresswoman.

"Bernie contributes to and backs up American chauvinism," Johnson said. "Bernie or AOC, when you are talking about the [Democratic Socialists of America], you are talking about sharing the spoils of imperialism.”

But...but...

WHY is burning an American Flag "protected Free Speech"...

...yet, burning the Rainbow Queer Flag is "un-protected Hate Speech"?

This country is now functioning as one giant evil, lying, hypocritical satanic dumpster fire.

Thanks to the CPUSA and their ally the Democrat-Communist Party.

Liberals are like Slinkys. They're good for nothing, but somehow they bring a smile to your face as you shove them down the stairs.

Yeah, they're a great part of it Jensen...but look deeper, ideologically.

The God-less Globalists who are the Shadow Gummint (Masons, Illuminati, Bilderberg, CFR, S&B, Luciferians)are giving them as well as all haters of good like LGBQXYZ, Satanists, and LICENSE to turn this world upside down. (Isaiah 5:20 is accelerated into high gear.)

Darn good question!

Utah high school football players could be in trouble for burning pride flag in video

A pair of Utah high school football players found themselves at the center of a police investigation after video surfaced of a player allegedly burning a pride flag while laughing and yelling "all gays die."

The Granite School District in Northern Utah asked police to open an investigation this week as the controversial Snapchat video sparked outrage on social media, school officials told ABC News on Tuesday.

Concerned community members notified school district officials on Monday, demanding action when a football player at Kearns High School in Salt Lake City shared the offensive video on social media. Some called for the incident to be investigated as a potential hate crime.

This one makes me sad:

After LGBTQ banner burned, Ames pastor says church will display pride flag 'as an act of faith'

An Ames pastor was ready to give the benefit of the doubt to a man accused of burning her church's LGBTQ banner.

That, however, was before the suspect told local media that he "burned down their pride, plain and simple."

Adolfo Martinez, 30, of Ames is charged with harassment and reckless use of fire after police say he stole the banner and burned it early Tuesday outside Dangerous Curves Gentleman’s Club.

Whether he faces hate crime charges will be up to the Story County Attorney's Office. 

Story County Attorney Jessica Reynolds told KCCI that her office will review police evidence to determine if Martinez’s actions meet the definition of a hate crime in Iowa.

Government is in the last resort the employment of armed men, of policemen, gendarmes, soldiers, prison guards, and hangmen.
The essential feature of government is the enforcement of its decrees by beating, killing, and imprisoning.
Those who are asking for more government interference are asking ultimately for more compulsion and less freedom.

Darn good question!

Yup. One that needs to be addressed ASAP at SCOTUS. It's loooong overdue to also challenge laws that are based solely on identity.

What is all this crap about the Queer Flag being some kind of exclusive "sacred" banner?? Meanwhile the Gay Mafia can urinate on a statue of Jesus Christ and burn the American Flag with social and legal impunity?

"Hate Speech" and "Hate Crime" are total BS, designed to give Queers and anti-White fascists political cover to assault anyone they want.

ENOUGH Affirmative Action, Quotas, scoring tests on curves, giving points based on identity -- these laws are ALL fundamentally unconstitutional. The Supreme Court needs to restore "Justice" and "Equality" to ALL.

This institutional double AND triple standard for equality and justice cannot continue to stand. Like it or not, "Hate" of ANYTHING is a constitutional right. So are opinions.

Either ALL Flag Burning is "Free Speech" or none of it is.

Hate" of ANYTHING is a constitutional right. So are opinions.

The problem develops when propagandaists “opine” against our constitutional principles, and develop massive followings, as we see today.

These socialistic mobs actually believe they can ignore and overrule those principles through ‘democratic’ means.

Ain’t gonna happen. Our Constitution was designed to prevent mob rule, — and/or minority infringements.

Constitutional law will prevail, or civil war will commence...
