At the republican convention in Cleveland, you will find plenty of flag burners. Most of the time they will piss you off, but today a man burned a flag and the four words a policeman said to him made this a classic. Just outside the convention center was a group of self professed communists who decided that they would burn the American flag because as we all know, America is the most evil country that ever existed. So this commie sets the flag on fire and a moment later a cop turned to the man and said, “Your on fire ,stupid.” I’m lovin’ it.
Carl Dix, a representative of 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.”
Some in the crowd jeered the officers, yelling, “Blue lives murder!”
About 10 more minutes passed before the crowd was under control.
One man who was in handcuffs stood in the street with his shirt pulled above his shoulders. A woman in a torn shirt also was led away in handcuffs.
Police Chief Calvin Williams was among a dozen officers trying to restore order by pushing people back.
Lt. Michael Butler said 10 to 16 people were taken into custody and would be charged.
Two officers were assaulted and suffered minor injuries, police said. One officer was seen bleeding from his elbow.
I’d drive up to Cleveland tomorrow if a few of the commies promised to set themselves on fire. Hell, I’ll even bring the marshmallows.
