On Tuesday, the Blaze, other conservative sites as well as military related websites are reporting that a group of anarchists, liberals, and communists plan to burn the American flag, tomorrow, July 1, 2015, just days before the 4th of July weekend. An unknown group named, Disarm NYPD, has launched the disturbing event enticing hatred for the flag, the United States, and those who served and died defending the United States. The radical event is to be held at the Fort Greene Park on Myrtle Avenue in Brooklyn, New York.
The hate group was launched in calling for the immediate disarmament of the New York Police Department (NYPD) in light of recent shootings in New York, and the killings in Charleston, SC. The group originally planned to burn the Confederate flag but decided to go after the American flag instead. The organizer stated that the reason for the Burn the Flag event was due to supposed oppression and that the flag symbolized such oppression and the act by Dylan Roof who gunned down nine members of the AME church in Charleston, SC.
The unknown organizer said, “We cannot ignore the roots of Dylan Roof’s savagery in America’s long history of institutionalized racism and murderous violence against black people. The Confederate flag, which Dylan Roof proudly displayed, is a lasting symbol of slavery, segregation, and the racist exploitation that still dominates our society. Dylan Roof isn’t an isolated actor… he is a product of a consistent pattern of state-sponsored terrorism and radicalized dehumanization in America.”
“Still today, because of the color of their skin millions are imprisoned, thousands are executed in the street by police, and those that escape death and torture are harassed daily. There will be no peace until we tear down this system of oppression. It isn’t enough to take the flag down; we must put an end to white supremacy once and for all,” the unknown organizer said.
Based on the comments on the Facebook page, not everyone is pleased and feel this act will entice more violence. Last week, the radical Nation of Islam leader, Louis Farrakhan, told his radical followers in DC that the American flag is a symbol of racism and needs to be taken down. Adding to the threat of violence due to the flag burning event, Fox news reported on June 28, 2015 that the DHS and the FBI has warned of possible terrorist attacks during the 4th of July celebration.
