Black Lives Matter activists burn the US flag outside White House in Washington DC on July 4
A series of videos posted in Twitter show the Black Lives Matter protestors tramping the US flag before setting it on fire on the Fourth of July in Washington DC, right in front of the White House.
The activists claimed that the American flag is a symbol of “slavery.” One of the online videos depicts a young black woman in a square outside the White House, officially named “Black Lives Matter Plaza” dance on the nation flag. Meanwhile another woman shouts into a megaphone “F**k the Fourth of July. F**k the American flag. That’s what we are saying.”
It sounds like a swan song for the Independence Day. And it was reportedly organized by the Revolutionary Communist Party. Vladimir Lenin apparently would have been happy.
Another video shows this woman asking, “What does the American flag represent?” and when she receives an answer, “America. Every citizen that lives in America,” she argues that the flag is symbol of slavery and the country “was built on the backs of the slaves.”

And then the tongues of flames begin to consume the nation banner.

One of the activists’ leader can be heard saying, “We knew what this flag represents: One, two, three, four, slavery, genocide and war, five, six, seven, eight, America was never great.”
Refuse Fascism is out here in front of the White House. They plan to participate in the “#FlagBurningChallenge” at 7:30. I plan to livestream when that happens.— Ford Fischer (@FordFischer) July 4, 2020
