Occupy Charlotte burns U.S. flag

They’re displaying all the class we’ve come to expect from these communist radicals.

Some members of the Occupy Wall Street group in Charlotte, N.C., are under fire for setting American flags ablaze, but one of the protesters is defending his incendiary actions.

“Those were actions taken on my behalf,” Occupy Charlotte member Alex Tyler said at a camp meeting, according to a Charlotte Observer report. “I did it to display my utter contempt for American greed, not (the military).”

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police have charged Tyler and three other men with arson and setting fire to woods in the area of tents that previously housed members of the local Occupy movement. A police report says the men caused the fire by burning two American flags.

Not only did they burn flags; they also managed to set the woods on fire, and four of them have been arrested.

Add it to a long list of Occupy crimes that already includes arson, assault, possession of explosives, rape, and murder.

    I would rather live in a country where burning the flag is legal than in a country where it was illegal, but it’s still a d!ck move either way.
    Real protesters know they are going to jail.
