“We will burn the blood-soaked imperialist rag.”
To properly honor the ascension of an outright fascist to the presidential candidacy, the notorious flag burner and revolutionary communist Joey Johnson will demonstrate the correct way to treat the American flag.
While Johnson will be doing this under the slogan that “America Was Never Great — We Need To Overthrow This System’, he invites any and all who find themselves sickened by what this country does here and all around the world, and who find the fascistic chauvinism of Trump (as well as the candidacy of war criminal and youth incarcerator Hillary Clinton) to be outrageous, to join him at East 4th & Prospect at 4:00 pm Wednesday.
Johnson’s conviction for burning a flag at the Republican Convention of 1984 was overturned after a major political battle which went to the Supreme Court, resulting in the Texas v. Johnson decision in 1989 that burning the flag is not illegal. Interview with Joey Johnson
