The Revolutionary Communist Party of America showed up at President Donald Trump’s “Salute to America” July 4th celebration and decided to burn American flags on the National Mall. Well, one Marine veteran wearing a “Make America Great Again” t-shirt barreled right into them, and it didn’t end well for the Communists. You’ll love this.
President Donald Trump defied the naysayers who said his July 4th celebration would be a bust. In fact, people from across the nation descended on Washington, D.C., to witness history in the making. The National Mall was packed to capacity during the president’s speech as the new press secretary showed in this tweet:

However, there were a small number of pitiful protesters who showed up to burn the American flag and cause problems for those patriots attending the event.
The Revolutionary Communist Party of America was there wearing t-shirts promoting their cause. “Protesters wearing t-shirts of Bob Avakian, chairman of the Revolutionary Communist Party USA, burned the American flag while chanting ‘America was never great’ before fighting with counter-protesters wearing MAGA hats,” according to USA Today.
At one point, the Commie protesters set fire to Old Glory.
As the flag erupted in flames, a man wearing a sleeveless “Make America Great Again” shirt and a MARPAT (Marine pattern) bucket hat charged the group and grabbed the burning flag with his bare hands. He whipped it away from the protesters and attempted to put out the fire.
He continued to yell back at the protesters while holding onto the scorched flag. Someone asked the man if he was a veteran, and he pointed to the USMC tattoo on his shoulder, responding simply, “Yes! Semper fi.”

After the Marine veteran had the scorched flag, the group of protesters, all wearing Revolutionary Communist Party shirts that read “BA Speaks: Revolution, Nothing Less,” linked arms and began chanting, “America was never great.”
At that point, the patriotic Marine confronted them as they linked arms and were shouting anti-American slogans.
“Following the flag-burning, several skirmishes broke out between protesters and Trump supporters, resulting in two arrests. A statement from the U.S. Secret Service indicated that two agents were injured while making those arrests,” the Daily Caller reports.
The Secret Service said one person was arrested for felony assault on a police officer and malicious burning, while the other was arrested for hindering a police investigation and resisting arrest.
Two uniformed Secret Service officers also suffered minor injuries while attempting to make the arrests, reports the Independent.
Although it is not illegal to burn an American flag, the Secret Service said the burning occurred beyond the limits of a permit issued by the National Park Service.
One of the arrested flag burners is believed to be Gregory “Joey” Johnson, a member of the Revolutionary Communist Party who won a court case in 1989 arguing that flag burning was protected speech under the First Amendment of the Constitution.
“[The US flag] is a symbol of empire, it’s a symbol of oppression, it’s a symbol of slavery, it’s a symbol of genocide, it’s a symbol of invasion, it’s a symbol of occupation, it’s a symbol of torture. This rag of empire deserves to be burned,” said Gregory Johnson, who was arrested.
Isn’t it a tad bit ironic that if Mr. Johnson was in a Communist country and attempted to burn the flag not only would he be arrested, it’s likely he would be beaten and sent to prison for years and years?
That’s what makes Americans so livid when they see a rabid leftist burning our flag.
If these people hate America so much, why don’t they leave? Well, they are on a mission that has been going on for around 100 years in America. Right after the Bolsheviks Revolution in Russia in 1917, the Communists started infiltrating America.
Their goal is to destroy America from within. And this is exactly where these Democratic Socialists like Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez come in. They are a direct result of this diabolical influence that originated in Soviet Russia.
That’s why it’s imperative all patriots expose their disastrous plans. Like President Donald Trump says, “America will never be a Socialist nation.” When I hear Donald Trump say “Let’s Make America Great Again”, I also hear the familiar echo “cowboy up” people. It’s high time we stop being embarrassed about our exceptional nature and start being proud of it again.
