Communist at RNC burns flag, sets himself on fire

Communists set flag on fire, burn themselves...A protester wearing a pro-Communist t-shirt tried to burn a U.S. flag outside the Republican National Convention and ended up setting himself on fire.  Firefighters extinguished the fire and no serious injuries were reported.

CBS New York reported:

Moments after the flag was set on fire, officers charged in to put it out with an extinguishing spray that some in the crowd thought was pepper spray because of similarities in the design of the canisters and the eye irritation caused by the fire-suppression substance.

“You’re on fire! You’re on fire, stupid!” a Cleveland officer shouted at a protester while firing the extinguishing spray.

The idiot also manage to catch others on fire as well:

CBS added:

Carl Dix, a representative of Revolutionary Communist Party, said the group organized the burning of the American flag as a “political statement about the crimes of the American empire. There’s nothing great about America.”

The skirmish erupted just outside an entrance to the arena and near a row of popular restaurants where cable news networks had set up for the week.

Some in the crowd jeered the officers, yelling, “Blue lives murder!”
