Antifa thugs burn U.S. flag in Seattle, hold sign that reads: ‘Go back to Europe’ — Video

While protesting a pro-Trump Patriot Prayer event in Seattle on Sunday, masked Antifa thugs burned a U.S. flag while holding a sign that read, “Go back to Europe.”

Neal Morton of the Seattle Times reported that a group of so-called “Solidarity Against Hate” demonstrators burned a small American flag during the course of the afternoon clashes, Breitbart reported.

A video of the flag-burning also made its way onto social media:


Although the flag-burners wore masks, they all appear to be of European descent.

Breitbart added:

The Times reported that the crowd dispersed by evening, but that tense moments took place over the course of the day.

“The rhetoric and vitriol continue to flow at Westlake Park,” the Seattle Times reported at 3:30 p.m. PST. “Anti-fascist protesters continue to shout down the pro-Trump speakers, and more than once someone from the crowd has jumped onto the stage to grab the microphone away.”

“Part of the crowd is on the move, back toward  Denny Park from Westlake, while others have ignored a police dispersal order and continue to crowd the Westlake plaza or circle back around the police lines,” the Times reported.

“Pepper spray and blast balls have been deployed, to varying effect on the crowd,” the Times reported. “Reporters on the ground describe the crowd as tense and emotional, and point to a growing police presence.”

The Seattle clash took place in the wake of Saturday’s violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, but the Patriot Prayer event and the counter-protest were both scheduled ahead of the “Unite the Right” rally that turned into a melee.

Twitchy reported that a Soviet flag was on display at the Seattle protest, but that banner managed to survive without being burned.

Video of the flag was posted by journalist Mike Bivins:

And of course, there were the obligatory signs and calls to murder “Nazis,” which to leftists, means anyone who either voted for Trump or holds a conservative point of view on anything.

It’s almost enough to make one think liberals really do want a second, bloody civil war over Donald Trump.  And make no mistake, after the Charlottesville episode, leftists are bound to get even more violent than ever before.
