NY Post – Police arrested 17 people Wednesday after a melee broke out during a flag-burning in the streets outside the Republican National Convention. …
Carl Dix of the Revolutionary Communist Party said the group organized the burning of the American flag as a “political statement about the crimes of the American empire. There’s nothing great about America.”
Moments after the flag was set on fire, officers charged in to put it out with an extinguishing spray that some in the crowd thought was pepper spray because of similarities in the design of the canisters and the eye irritation caused by the fire-suppression substance.
“You’re on fire! You’re on fire, stupid!” a Cleveland officer shouted at a protester while firing the extinguishing spray.
Let’s review how this works, shall we? Radical hippie Communist trash hate America. Radical hippie Communist trash use the freedoms America provides them to promote a system that doesn’t allow exactly the freedoms they’re using. They hate the cops, who are there to protect them from getting the pinko snot beat out of them by the kinds of groups that are throwing bags of urine at each other. The whole time the police are trying to keep the peace in this chaos, crowds are chanting “Blue lives murder!” and fighting with them.
Into this literally flammable situation, someone takes a lighter to the symbol of the very liberty that allows them to do what their doing, under the protection of the courts and the U.S. Constitution. And because karma is a thing, said firestarter lights himself on fire.
And who’s job is it to put it out and save this ignoramus’ life? Not Carl “Marx” Dix. Not any of his comrades. No one on the lunatic fringe who are too busy trying to bring about a world without free speech, assembly, press or religion, but with gobs and gobs of central planning from bureaucrats. Of course, it’s the rank and file of the Cleveland Police Department, that’s who.
And if you think any of the phony, radical chic enemies of your basic rights said “thank you” to the cops who saved this Bolshevik’s life, you haven’t been paying attention the last 50 years or so.
