Flag Burners Get Disrupted

July 1–NYC

It was a hot, smoky day in the city wherein a group calling itself DisarmNYPD organized a flag burning. The event was publicized on a website bearing the traditional red-white-&-black colors of the branded #Occupy Movement, fronted by the faces of dead black males, and spouting some demonstrable bullshit about a “new political vision.”

There was actually nothing new at all in protesting, the act of flag-burning, or the representatives of the organization. For in the crowd of so-called activists there were few black faces. Instead, there were mostly white, young males with trademark bandannas around their necks or covering their faces.

DisarmNYPDAccording to various reports, these fightin’ hipsters were a little intimidated by the specter of this:

Waterguns😀 To be fair, there was also this…

Fire ExAlso, a few bikers & vets showed up.

Nevertheless, the group would not be distracted from its task, which was to be a literal walking cliché, full of stale venom and Jane Fonda-esque indignation, as they fled to a corner of the park to set up the port-a-grill. They were, of course, chased by the counter protesters and–get this–the police, who were sent to protect them. The irony!

As it turns out, they managed to get one flag started, but the counter protesters countered by tripping and kicking one of them, so they called it a day. Sadly, no waterguns were used in the protection of Old Glory, which would have truly been a “new political vision.”

Once the InterTubes got hold of the story, there was a lot of mockery and quite a bit of defensiveness. The group later released the following statement:

“We find it a sign of the times that people can care so much about a piece of cloth, while at the same time be so quiet about black churches being burned all over the country,” a post on Facebook said. “Perhaps this is the great difference between us and the so-called ‘patriots’. While they express their loyalty to symbols, we express our loyalty to the lives of the oppressed.”

To which the Americans everywhere, or at least those paying attention, responded, “Whatevs. Pass the potato salad.”

    From my “pals” at Gothamist, how the uber-left covered the flag burning event. The comments, priceless. Gives me hope that common sense liberals do exist 😀


    • Lulu says:

      I have a son who lives in NYC. I talked to him last night (still at work at 9PM for 13 hour workday) and he isn’t even aware of this stuff. Un or underemployed young men cause problems of which most of them stupid problems. At least some of this is being caused by our economy. These “men” are stunted. Economically, socially and psychologically stunted. Young women too but in different ways.

      • leslie says:

        I met a young man yesterday while I was grocery shopping. He was working – arranging produce; I was disarranging same. Anywhoo, He had graduated from a large state college with a degree in poli-sci “but not to go into law”, he said. I am certain he did not go to a big name public university so he could stock produce in a chain grocery store.
        I guess what I’m thinking about is that. Yes, these protestors probably areun-or under employed. At the same time, they could be working and trying other more honest ways to get ahead. I really appreciated the integrity of this young man as he worked a job that any non-degreed person would be fit to do. And he wasn’t complaining, he was answering my questions.
        I think I’ll shop there again.

        • elliesmom says:

          If he works hard at the grocery store, there’s a lot of room for advancement. He could end up the district manager of several stores or go into their marketing or purchasing departments and move up that ladder. One of my older brothers started out as a bagger, joined the Navy, got an education, came home and asked for a job at the same store. When he retired, he was a Vice President in the grocery chain. He used to laugh and say the best education he got for the job was bagging the groceries. He got to see what the customers bought together, what kind of things made them leave the store smiling, etc. Whenever he visited one of the stores as VP, he always stopped and bagged a few groceries. 😉

          • leslie says:

            I could actually see that in this kid’s future. I hope it happens. (After our brief conversation, he said to me, “You just made my day”.) What a nice thing to say to someone you’ve never met before.

          • DeniseVB says:

            Reminds me of Carly Fiorina’s story starting out as a receptionist in a real estate office and gave it 110%, which was noticed by her bosses, she moved up fast, the rest is “herstory” 🙂

        • foxyladi14 says:

          I would too. 😀

      • I was actually thinking this last night as I wrote this and I considered trying to include a serious discussion about that aspect of it. But it was late, I had a long day, and I didn’t really feel like being all that serious. But I think you do have a point.

    • I’m cracking up at the complete distraction in comments over the one hammer that showed up on scene. Posted some of the lyrics to this:

  3. DeniseVB says:

    This is a good read if you’ve been following the George Takei gay-splaining feeds on twitter and twitchy…


    I really have no problem with celebs who say stupid things, just the hypocrisy of their right to say stupid things while (D), but heaven forbid an (R) spouts dumb stuff, they must be destroyed.

    • DandyTIger says:

      Noticed a couple of George FB posts about that. Embarrassing to say the least. But then, he’s just doing what all the non black 1% progs do, patronizing and “helping” the helpless blacks, because #caring. Such rich irony that they don’t even know they’re bigots.

      • Lulu says:

        George is dumber than a stump. There is a reason the zenith of his career was showing up to Star Trek conventions. I accidentally went into one that was being held in the same convention center as a needlework show in the ’80’s. I had trouble processing the nerdyness of it all! It even smelled funny in there. Like mothballs or something. The real thing, NASA, was only a few miles away but I guess they don’t really welcome people with Romulan paper mache heads on.

        • 1539days says:

          One of the dumb things Takei did in his career was during the decade of the Star Trek sequels. He thought Sulu should be a captain having been in Starfleet as long as the character was. So, they gave Sulu a command in Star Trek 6 and Takei was in about 5 minutes in the movie because Kirk is the only captain that’s important in Star Trek.

          • Myiq2xu says:

            GT falls into the category of “Lucky motherfuckers who don’t appreciate how lucky they are.”

            Other than Star Trek he did only one movie I can think of – The Green Berets with John Wayne. He wasn’t the star in that one either. He basically owes his whole career to playing Sulu, and he resents it.

      (eye-roll alá gràndé)

    • 49erDweet says:

      Read with interest – and not a little scepticism – Georgie Porgies recitation of “the horrors” he (shudder) personally faced during “the internment”. I think a Christmas Goose is what he reminded me of. Japanese living on the west coast got a raw deal then, but none were suddenly woken and drug from their homes. They all had notice and time to make plans.
      The two biggest long term results of the internment program, btw, were totally unplanned. LAX and illegal immigration from Mexico.

  4. Myiq2xu says:

  5. Constance says:

    Great post! I’m glad some real men, the good old boys, showed up to offer a counter demonstration to the flag burning. Too bad the super soakers never got used in the fracas.

  7. Dora says:

    I don’t think this arrogant comment by Obama will make anyone happy. The Reagan republicans will be angry when they hear it, while the Hillary supporters will surely cringe.

    Obama: I’m Reagan and Hillary can be Bush 41

    President compares himself to Ronald Reagan as he strives for a ‘transformational’ presidency.

    BREAKING: NYPD Officers to Wear ‘Radiation Detection Monitors’ on 4th of July – Fears of DIRTY BOMB ATTACK!


    • 1539days says:

      I think this July 4 thing is a lot of hype. ISIS thinks killing people face to face is scarier in the US. They also don’t like to fight against a prepared foe.

      • DeniseVB says:

        Something stinks about the hype, it’s like they’re trying to send signals to the Lone Wolf ISIS sympathizers to shoot up a picnic or set off homemade bombs and pressure cookers at fireworks gatherings.

        I remember when GWB’s threat levels were raised the left said he did it on purpose for political gain or something to make us scared. Boogity-boogity. Works both ways snowflakes. 😛

      • Whatever’s gonna happen, I’m glad I’m leaving in the morning to spend some quality time with family in the woods.

  9. elliesmom says:

    Real protesting isn’t for the faint of heart. Hiding in the corner of a park and running away at the sight of some water pistols is, however, in line with the generation of special snowflakes. I would have liked to be at the post-protest barbecue the bikers held. I bet they used the protesters Weber to grill their steaks.

    • 1539days says:

      Reminds me of the guy who burned a Koran over an Hibachi on YouTube.

    • DeniseVB says:

      I could get behind a good ISIS flag burning rally to send a message to stop tossing gays off buildings, raping children and torturing Christians. Not hearing much from the left these days….no outraged movie stars, feminists or illegal immigrants ? Just the noises of War on Evil Republicans ?

  10. leslie says:

    hope this translates top TCH:


    I couldn’t find the link on AHMalcome’s timeline.

  11. lililam says:

    I am appalled at how often the media has found time to showcase the black church fires in the last few days. If you had the sound off or weren’t paying attention, The public is led to believe that they were all started by the klan. They all include the disclaimer that none have been considered hate crimes and several have been due to lightening strikes. The last time I watched a local anchor report on them, she looked almost embarrassed and glad to hurriedly run through the piece. It is so irresponsible of them- mainly NBC. They have the best local affiliate here, so I tend to watch them more than I should.

  12. DeniseVB says:

    Does this flag offend anyone ? I always thought it was fun to fly for Independence Day as a Happy Birthday America flag. Now I’m worried because slavery in the late 1700’s. Sigh.

    • swanspirit says:

      I ❤ that flag! I would fly it in a heartbeat. It is the beginning of our country, and to equate with slavery would be a perversion of history.

      • DeniseVB says:

        Well you just never know what’s gonna trigger feels 😉 I got my flag for a donation to the Williamsburg Historical Preservation group many years ago.

    • votermom says:

      Oh, the stars are in an O shape for Obama!

      Thanks Denise. It goes well with this. 😀

      • lizzy says:

        Great performance. I heard a fantastic performance of Battle Hymn of the Republic by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir last night. They won of Grammy for their 1959 recording. Can someone find a link to it?

          • lizzy says:

            Thanks Myiq. When I heard the words to the verses I wondered how we so completely lost sight of the good things we’ve fought for. The PC police are constantly denigrating everything we stand for but there is no one answering their vicious attacks. This song seems particularly appropriate as it came out of the Civil War and counters all the racial hate speweres.

  13. DeniseVB says:

    Oh, this story gave me the sads. I never watched Dukes of Hazzard but I do remember it being wildly popular …. the owner of the original General Lee car is replacing the conf. flag with the American flag.


  14. piper says:

    Stole this from a commenter on WH Dossier:

    Lib/Progs ( Just examine their attitudes )
    1. No matter how ridiculously they attack you…. we deserve it.
    2. Regardless of how many people are hurt…… their plan is better.
    3. They don’t care how much education you have….. they still consider themselves smarter.
    4. Even through their policies continue to fail….. their plan is better.
    5. Even through their “ideals” have failed…..it’s now become our fault.
    6. So what if we do more charitable works…. we’re still evil.
    7. It doesn’t matter that they constantly lie….. we’re still wrong.
    8. So what if they don’t apply the rules evenly…. they’re still more fair.
    9. So what if they disparage our religion… they’re more “enlightened”.
    10. So what if they dislike our traditions and culture… it’s us that has to change.
    11. So what if their side created the KKK… we’re the racists.
    12. So what if their side interned the Japs….. we’re the fascists.
    13. There is nothing wrong with abortions….. it’s just tissue
    14. There’s nothing wrong with Che or Mao…… you just don’t understand.
    15. Why follow the Constitution?…… It’s lame anyways.
    …. and last but not least
    16. Even though my party always sides with criminals….. it’s you Conservatives that are the crooks.

    • foxyladi14 says:

      Amen Piper.

      They should have been stopped long ago!!! 😡

        Yep, maybe that’s why they’re so annoying, little whiny brats. I already raised 3 of them because they always didn’t get what they wanted either 😉

  15. OMFG, Independence Day is looming, so of course Vox has to hit the trifecta of vile progressive ideology: slavery, Native American persecution, and Europe-envy. Ugly millennials have it sooooo hard.

      • lizzy says:

        It is rather bizarre that Washington crossing the Delaware is used for a piece on the Fourth of July. The painting represents a battle around Christmas time, Dec. 22? there are chunks of ice floating in the river. The postage stamp size does not do justice to a huge painting, over twelve feet wide. The artist made Washington heroic, standing in the boat facing snow, wind and river.

    • 1539days says:

      One of the most striking aspects of the Vox website is that it has no comments section. It also features fewer ads than most news or political sites. One discourages readership, the other should make them unable to pay their web-hosting bill, let alone the writers. It’s pretty obvious that Vox is being funded almost entirely by George Soros or one of his front groups. That tells me Dylan Matthews is not an iconoclast, but a toady writing specifically for his audience, the Tides Foundation.

      • DeniseVB says:

        Makes sense to me because those articles are unreadable. Clickhole is more educational 🙂

      • Lulu says:

        Explanatory journalism for the congenitally dumb and too lazy to use Google. It reads like a journal for “slow” people. Their readers have been locked in a janitor’s closet for 4 years at Harvard. Too dumb to be left alone for long periods and too smart to wrap silver in a hotel restaurant. Their writers majored in art theory and now write about economics. Or French film noir and write about statistics. The only people they ever talk to are each other thus the cycle of know nothing, do nothing, think nothing. They also look like they burp and fart a lot. It is a gaseous fragility they exude.

        • Constance says:

          French film noir would rot anyone’s brain. If someone tries to suck you into going to one of those films remember you need a few drinks before you go.

      • swanspirit says:

        Dylan Matthews has been blogging since he was 14. In between blogs, he apparently attended Harvard and wrote there as well. It is all he has ever done. So everything he writes is based on absolutely no experience whatsoever. it is all crap in his head, rolling around with that one little pea that is also in that skull cavity rattling around.

  16. Dora says:

    Wow! The Donald sure does seem to be telling the truth, so why are so many people upset about it? What’s wrong with progressives anyway?

    Gunman who shot dead 32-year-old woman in front of her father ‘at random’ on San Francisco pier was illegal Mexican immigrant who’d been deported FIVE times but was mistakenly released

    • Lulu says:

      Mistakenly my ass. They turn ’em loose because Mexico sent them here to begin with because they are criminals and don’t want them back. These guys tell the sheriff here that the police told them to get out of Mexico because they are criminals, crazy and unwanted and they don’t want to pay to jail them. Remember Castro flushing out the jails and asylums in Cuba? That is what Mexico is doing.

      • 1539days says:

        No Mexican crosses a desert or gets in the back of a truck if he has succeeded in Mexico. Every illegal immigrant had a problem with Mexico and apparently Mexico is also happy to be rid of them as well. Asking whether every immigrant is a rapist is not a real question. The point is that we don’t know ANYTHING about illegal aliens.

  17. Dora says:

    After reading about that illegal immigrant who shot the woman at random, this story is especially infuriating! Damn him!

    Obama administration scales back deportations in policy shift

    The Obama administration has begun a profound shift in its enforcement of the nation’s immigration laws, aiming to hasten the integration of long-term illegal immigrants into society rather than targeting them for deportation, according to documents and federal officials.


    • lizzy says:

      How can they scale back deportations? They haven’t been doing any. Be very skeptical of any number put out by the Obama administration. Their data is massaged, manipulated focockted and utterly irrelevant. For example the unemployment numbers that supposedly show more people working but there are fewer people in the labor force. Like Obama, total lies.

  18. helenk3 says:


    the should bake the cake and put syrup of ipec in it. I would make an interesting wedding reception

    • DeniseVB says:

      I’m starting to believe it’s more about religion than cakes and flowers. Are gays seeking out and targeting so called Christian businesses ?

    • leslie says:

      And that a$$hat, Avakian slaps a gag order on them as well. So first he bankrupts them and then he threatens to send them to prison if they even dare to speak about it – – – to ANYONE. Yesterday I read the complaints and “damages” (that totaled $135,000) to the 2 women who had requested the cake for their wedding.
      Amongst the complaints were: “weight gain, resumption of smoking, headaches, stomach aches, feeling as if they had been mentally raped and shamed, difficulty concentrating, loss of appetite . . . ” I’ll see if I can find the link and will add it when I do.
      Special little snowflakes had obviously never been told “No” before.

      • Lulu says:

        I noticed that “weddings” were smaller, more informal, cheaper and shall we say more family oriented around here this June. There were still weddings but not big, gaudy blowouts like a few years ago. This kind of stuff tends to cast a harsh light, show people who are not very nice couples, and simply make things swing the other way in terms of social norms. I went to a wedding (cousin’s granddaughter) in a small church and there was no “wedding cake” per se but homemade Italian cream cake and a potluck that was de-lish. It was sweet rather than ostentatious and we enjoyed it. And the ring bearer pooped in his pull ups and announced it just before the ceremony. It was so funny.

        • lizzy says:

          Less frills may be a result of people almost seven years into Obama’s economy not having so much disposable income.

        • DeniseVB says:

          I had the big blow out wedding and hated every minute of it because I let my mom run everything. I doubt she ordered the 27 (ok, maybe not that many) tier Roman Catholic Jesus themed cake from a Jewish bakery which was more to honor the priest than “my” wedding. I’m still thankful the cake toppers weren’t Mary and Joseph. 😛

      • DeniseVB says:

        les, there’s a list at the article in the tweet I posted.

      • lyn says:

          • leslie says:

            I actually tweeted that the other day when I first read the article. I was told no, it is just about cake and flowers. Lol.

    • Somebody says:

      I think we should all seek out Islamic bakeries and DEMAND a whiskey infused, maple bacon cake in the shape of the star of David, then sue the shit out of them when they refuse to make it. I’m certain it would hurt my fee fees and I might gain weight and feel mentally raped and shamed or something.

      I’m fed up with the gay cake lawsuits. Whatever happened to businesses reserving the right to refuse service??? How is it that business owners have no rights???

      Personally, if I owned a bakery, I wouldn’t give a shit. I’d be more interested in expanding my customer base and maintaining a good reputation. I really don’t understand the gays seeking out these businesses and trying to force someone to provide services they don’t want to provide. All I can think of is that sooner or later one of the bakers is going to make a Minnie’s chocolate pie type “special” cake for a gay couple’s wedding.

      Why is it that the gay person’s rights trump the business owners??? I honestly don’t understand. I don’t understand legally how they can be forced to pay these fines, nor can I fathom why anyone would want a cake from someone that doesn’t want to make it for them. Gaystapo indeed.

      • Obviously the petition would need to say that you felt mentally beheaded. You have to align the imaginary crime with the imaginary victim class. Just sayin’.

      • blowme0bama says:

        “How is it that business owners have no rights???”

        Well, Oregon enacted legislation that included prohibition of discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation in provision of services to the public.

        NOW, what if a Christian went to a gay baker’s place and wanted a cake which included an inscription saying something like “two men laying together is an abomination”? It would seem to me if the gay baker refused to bake that, it would be discriminatory on the basis of the the Christian’s religion. Maybe after a few of those type suits, this gay mafia shit would calm down.
