This is the best, most ironic headline I’ve seen in years:
Weenies burn flag to protest cops, get attacked by bikers, need cops to save their asses
Now they probably love the cops.
A group of flag-burning anti-NYPD protesters needed New York’s Finest to save their skin from a gang of angry bikers who tried to pummel them in a Brooklyn park for setting Old Glory ablaze Wednesday.
The fiery stunt by a few dozen members of the group Disarm the Police led to a chaotic scene at about 8 p.m. in Fort Greene Park, when the activists enraged 40 members of the Hallowed Sons Motorcycle Club by roasting the flag on a tiny barbecue grill.
‘They took off like little b—hes,’ said one biker. ‘They lit the f–king flag and took off running once they got slapped once or twice.”
The anarchists had announced on social media that they had planned to burn the flag in protest of NYPD policies, drawing a large group of flag-waving counterprotesters, including the bikers.
As one might imagine, the brave, courageous, patriotic flag burners set about exercising their First Amendment rights, only to be exercised by others also exercising their First Amendment Rights:
The bikers then started trying to rough up the protesters — who were quickly saved by members of the same police force that they criticize.
The protesters were shielded by the cops and escorted out of the park.
‘I served in the Marines,’ said counterprotester Brian Christopher, 23. ‘We defend this flag. We are ready to die for it. When I see people burning it and showing complete ignorance, it’s very offensive.
Semper Fidelis, Brian.
No arrests were made in the scuffle, and the group’s flag-burning stunt went up in smoke.
Pathetic examples of sub-humanity like this do indeed have a First Amendment right to burn the flag, worship Che Guevera, lie, and in general behave like donkey’s asses. However, that does not protect them from other expressions of free speech by those that actually respect America and her symbols. In this case, the evil, racist, brutal police didn’t arrest anyone. I’m sure most of them, in separating the “counterprotestors” from the “protestors,” were suppressing laughter and were taking their time, allowing the counterprotestors to get in a few additional licks for the stars and stripes.
Is this a great country or what?
Maybe there is hope for America after all. Maybe before too long, we’ll begin slapping down–figuratively, mostly–those that are trying to destroy this great nation, sending them running like the courageous patriots they are.
