This July 4th, President Trump hosts a massive “Salute to America” event and parade in D.C. Huge crowds of patriots attended. A few communists thought they could disrupt the party, by burning the American Flag right outside the White House. Boy, were they in for a rude awakening.
Communists burning the American Flag on the Fourth of July. Is there a more anti-American image than that? It sounds almost like a joke. But this July 4th, a group calling themselves the “Revolutionary Communist Party” appeared outside the White House in order to protest the president, our country, and (apparently) our liberties.
Kind of ironic, when you think about it. These morons are protesting the very country that gives them the right to speak their minds. Something tells me that they wouldn’t be so free to do that—if they were in a communist country.
The leader of the group was Gregory “Joey” Johnson, a man who successfully sued the United States in the 1980s for—you guessed it—flag burning. I guess after 30+ years, this man’s never learned a new hobby.
Joey and the rest of his Marxist friends thought they could put a damper on Trump’s big, historic celebration by burning our flag. But not only did they face official confrontation, but one powerful patriot upset their plans in a big way.
A Marine veteran snatched a burning American flag from protesters Thursday just before President Donald Trump’s “Salute to America” on the National Mall.
As the flag erupted in flames, a man wearing a sleeveless “Make America Great Again” shirt and a MARPAT (Marine pattern) bucket hat charged the group and grabbed the burning flag with his bare hands. He whipped it away from the protesters and attempted to put out the fire.
He continued to yell back at the protesters while holding onto the scorched flag.
Someone asked the man if he was a veteran, and he pointed to the USMC tattoo on his shoulder, responding simply, “Yes! Semper fi.” [Source: Daily Caller]
Wow. This veteran jumped into the crowd of communists to rescued the American Flag from destruction. Can you image a better, more patriotic moment? The man confirmed he was a Marine. I can’t think of another group of people who would have so quickly jumped in the middle of a protest, just to save the flag. But Marines are that kind of loyal and intense.
What did the communists do? They didn’t dare attack a Marine! These pathetic pansies simply linked arms and spewed their tired slogan, “America was never great.”
But their day only got worse.
Following the flag-burning, several skirmishes broke out between protesters and Trump supporters, resulting in two arrests. A statement from the U.S. Secret Service indicated that two agents were injured while making those arrests. [Source: Daily Caller]
Among those arrested was Joey himself. I guess history repeats itself, eh Joey? You thought you could disgrace the United States on its birthday. Instead, your plans were ruined as an American hero rescued the flag. And you and your buddies got arrested after you tried to hurt more patriots.
Despite the communists’ little protest, President Trump’s event went off with little problems. In fact, an incredible crowd came out—even with periods of rain.
Seems like patriots outnumber communists in this country by a big margin.
