Communist group torches US flag in protest of Trumpís Los Angeles visit
The New York Post ^ | September 18, 2019 | Aaron Feis

A self-described communist group burned an American flag outside a Los Angeles hotel Tuesday in protest of President Trump’s arrival in the city, sparking a series of fights with pro-Trump counter-protesters.

“America was never great!” chanted a contingent from Revolution Club Los Angeles as they locked hands in a circle outside the Beverly Hills Hotel, a video of the act tweeted by the group shows.

That refrain turned to “Humanity first!” as a rabble-rouser in the middle of the circle set Old Glory aflame.

Toward the end of the clip, one counter-protester can be seen trying to break into the circle, as those forming its perimeter brace their arms against the intrusion.

That clash was one of several that erupted throughout the tense stand-off, according to CBS affiliate KCAL 9.

“All my years, I’ve never seen that,” Gregg Donovan, a Trump supporter, told the station. “I was very disappointed in both sides. I took a neutral stance. I just stood there with my sign the whole time, but the burning of the flag really hurt.”

Saw a great comment on a UK site......

Picture of the UK flag. Caption:- "Welcome to Great Britain. Now fit in or f**k off !"

A sentiment that should apply here also.

Pleasant as that would have been, might I suggest that a better solution would be to “disappear” some of these commies in a quiet and clandestine manner.

The time for vigilante justice is at hand. But always remember that revenge is a dish best served cold.

By now, local patriot groups must surely know who some of the troublemakers are in their communities.

Justice should be served out to, for example, rank-and-file Antifa members. Officials, academics, bureaucrats, and anyone with a high public profile will have to be off limits, at least for now. Too much backfire potential.

Once the low-level thugs realize they are being picked off one by one — and their leaders are powerless to save them — they will scatter like roaches when the lights go on.

The Revolution Clubs network is affiliated with the Revolutionary Communist Party. They have branches in LA, SF, Chicago, and New York.

What do you expect . First - It is in the Sanctuary State of Wackifornia, I mean California. Second - the State is anti-American and pro Criminal, Illegal Alien, Terrorist stronghold of complete stupidity, criminal officials and fools (I.E. Hollywood Jerks). Third - The State and City Gestapo agents force their Socialist/Communist ways on people to the point that local real Law-Enforcement officers are killed and those doing the deed are let loose because they, the leaders, don’t care. All they want is to take all the money that they can, both legally and illegally, spend it on themselves and tell the American Citizens that they are supposedly doing the best they can. Which, of course is a lie!!!!!!

Do you suppose any of these idiots understand America is great because they have the freedom to say it never was? Try saying that if you lived in Cuba or North Korea or China.
