This guy burns flags for fun and profit.
The flag was a symbol – not of freedom – which was as hard to find then as it is now, but of an exceptionally American indifference towards what was actually going on. Wherever I saw the ugliest side of this country, there was that flag with a “love it or leave it” not far behind. I wasn’t leaving the land of my birth, but I couldn’t just take it either. In looking to the future, I decided to burn the past.
And where does this guy's attitude come from?
Dread Scott Tyler, a student artist and fellow communist, had caused a major ruckus when his graduation piece consisted of an American flag draped across the floor in front of a photo montage entitled “What Is the Proper Way to Display the American Flag?” There was a comment book for responses, but in order to comfortably write in it, you had to step on the flag. It was great, and pissed off the right people. Dread Scott was totally unapologetic, even when his family had to hide after a hail of death threats.
Note: the video below includes foul language, it is very offensive. The comments are just has bad.
I'm an American, But I have to say, good video. F**k this country.
And is that the late Rachel Corey with the burning flag? @15 seconds. It is her at 25 seconds.
Update: I don't want you to have to watch the video so here are the screen shots.
