SICKENING: Radical protesters steal Trump supporter's American flag and BURN it

Rebel Staff
 

Anti-Trump protesters continue to show their disgusting true colours and they're anything but red, white and blue.

In a video obtained by GotNews, anti-Trump protesters stole an American flag from a Trump supporter and set it on fire.



The incident took place at a GOP convention in Burlingame, California.

At one point, a Muslim woman in a hijab says “burn that shit”.

GOOSEBUMPS: 40 years ago today, the American flag was saved in the greatest baseball play ever

The flag-burning was caught on camera by Mike Carroll who uploaded the event to Facebook. Here's what he had to say:

“Raw footage of anti-Trump protesters outside the GOP convention in Burlingame. An anti-Trump protester forcibly took a US flag away from a Trump supporter, then tore it up and burned it. Throughout this members of the anti-Trump protesters were trying to block my camera and push me away, while saying to me, “Stop pushing me, bro!” and that I should leave, while we were all on Hyatt Hotel property. This group said they were expressing their First Amendment rights, but they seemed to think it was appropriate to deny my First Amendment rights to cover them. This sort of thing happens on both sides of a subject, but this happened to me today. This is unedited footage. Two video clips together. For those at home to see what these events look and sound like. This contains profane language. It also seems to be part and parcel of protest speech. It should be noted that burning an American flag is protected as an expression of Freedom of Speech. But, this flag was the private property of the pro-Trump supporter. That constitutes assault and theft. Not writing this to take sides, but pointing out.”

Mike's right. Anyone familiar with Texas vs Johnson knows that flag-burning is absolutely protected under the First Amendment. However, destroying someone's property certainly isn't.

What a disgusting group of vile creatures.

It would seem that these “protesters” are anti-American as they burned the flag of their country. Why the mainstream media is not condemning this action baffles me! They prefer to put the “blame” on Mr. Trump and his supporters! I hope that this does not happen within our country!

Gotta love the kindness and tolerance of the anti Trump crowd , of curse the media will not admit they are the ones who are violent and intolerant.

Liberals at their best yet again. Liberals promote their love, peace and equality with violence, vandalism , intolerance and rage and just can’t see the hypocrisy of it. Not to mention the live in the free est country in the world and burn its flag. Send them all to North Korea so the can learn what freedom isn’t.

Keith Barnes. Great Post " the Muslin scum are running scared " . When Trump wins, I hope they deport that yelling Muslim woman along with the Flag burning Mexicans.

I am curious to see what will happen if Trump wins. Will we see riots all over the country?

Another example how left wing politics think their rights trump everyone else. The true colors of Clinton Obama politics at work. Disagree and violence is brought on you. You’re drowned out by child like adults over shouting you or through the use of blow horns and violence. The left is increasingly becoming more desperate and violent as the reality of them winning the election becomes slimmer.

“What a disgusting group of vile creatures.”

Most anti-Trump supporters are vile. It is a characteristic of the socialists. If these idiots got the anarchy they so desperately desire, they would be crying a river for as long as they managed to survive.

Well, that’s F’n un-American. The U.S. should ship ‘em all to some Arab country…they’ll be at home with those U.S. flag-burning lovers.

XX

Trump just got another million votes.

190 days to Trump-mas.

And then Washington is going to get a financial enema.

Every time this stuff happens we see the MSM spinning it that it’s Trump’s rhetoric that causes these people to loose all control of their actions. The lefties can do no wrong.
commented 2016-05-02 12:34:14 -0400
the plan is to frame trump as a destructor, cancel the elections, bring on martial law and put the globalist in power, which trudeau is one of them.
is government working for you or are you just an expendable pawn of government?
government no longer serves the people.

I would tell the protestors the camera will tell it’s own story. Also would be interesting to note which groups are being represented and inciting violence at these protests.
commented 2016-05-02 12:25:13 -0400
What is grotesque is when Trump supporters were accused of violence the media was condemning him and his supporters but when it is the other side destroying police cars surprisingly even usual moderates like Wolf Blitzer were defending their right to ""protest". How hypocritical?

George Soros must be so pleased.
