This speaks volumes about the modern Democratic Party.  On Tuesday, U.S. News reporter Steven Nelson said that U.S. and Israeli flags were burned as protesters chanted for “intifada.”

According to Nelson, the special snowflakes who burned the flags complained that they were made of nylon, not cotton.  So naturally, they didn’t burn very well…

Then they began burning Sanders signs.

And of course, police didn’t stop it…

Perhaps because they’re concerned about being called racist…

Here’s video posted by Nelson at U.S. News, and you can hear protesters chant, “f**k the flag.”

Nelson added:

Unprepared activists quickly ran out of flags and other combustible material and requested donations, in vain. What briefly was an impressive bonfire quickly went out for lack of supplies, as police watched.

In a short period of time, bandana-clad activists on two separate occasions torched flags. First, at around 8 p.m., a large group gathered as the Black DNC Resistance March reached the Democratic convention’s main venue after a grueling march of about 8 miles.

“F–k Hillary!” a crowd melodically chanted, swaying back and forth as two full-sized American flags burned on a sidewalk.

But not everyone was okay with the flag-burning, Nelson said:

The man dragging the remains said two Israeli flags also were burned, though no likeness was visible after the fact.

As he dragged off the mangled mess, an irate passerby warned him, “You’re in South Philly,” and challenged him to “get smart.”

“Soldiers are fighting under that flag for your f–king freedom,” the man shouted as a long line of police officers on bicycles rolled by, flanking the protest march.

So Soviet and Palestinian flags are okay, but not U.S. flags.  Got it…
