Liberals freak out at appearance of Gadsden flag at BLM office near Burns, Oregon

Gadsden-blmIt seems that liberals these days are far too thin-skinned, in addition to being completely ignorant of U.S. history.

A Gadsden flag was spotted flying at a Bureau of Land Management building outside Hines, Oregon, late Sunday, causing liberals great trepidation and concern that hordes of armed individuals supporting the Constitution were close at hand.

Oregon Public Broadcasting reported: “Law enforcement arrived shortly after people began to notice it.  The flag wasn’t present Monday morning.”

That’s right — apparently, someone reported it to police.  Never mind the fact that the Gadsden flag, now associated with the Tea Party, was a Revolutionary War banner.

OPB naturally connected the flag to those protesting the shooting death of LaVoy Finicum, something many in the patriot movement see as cold-blooded murder.  Leftists on Twitter also engaged in a collective freak-out:

Of course, there’s absolutely nothing illegal about flying the flag, it’s just that liberals hate it, possibly because it stands for freedom from tyranny.

Of course, there’s no idea who put it up, but liberals were relieved when it was removed.  Too much freedom apparently isn’t good for their hearts…

Um, I’m thinking no…

Apparently, liberals think that those who oppose tyranny support sedition.

Prison? For flying a historic flag?  There’s the modern-day left for you…

More liberal tolerance — sending in gunships over a flag.

Probably, considering the way things are going…

The reaction to this lone flag is not only sad and ridiculous, it’s almost enough to make one think liberals really do want a second, bloody civil war in America.
