It deals with a protest.
…the group Disarm the Police…had announced on social media that they had planned to burn the flag in protest of NYPD policies.
But the event didn’t go as planned, thanks to members of the Hallowed Sons Motorcycle Club.
One of the bikers rushed forward in a fit of rage and kicked over the grill, sending embers flying. He then doused it as members of the pro-flag crowd chanted “USA! USA!” The bikers then started trying to rough up the protesters.
Here’s where the ironic part of the story.
And here’s some evidence that silly government regulations (a New York City tradition) take the fun out of protesting and counter-protesting.
While it’s illegal to openly burn anything in Fort Greene Park, the self-styled anarchists managed to find a loophole in the law that allows cooking in closed barbecue grills.
A few final comments on this story.
I realize I shouldn’t care, but I’m always dumbfounded when left-wing crazies refer to themselves as anarchists. Don’t they realize that you can’t be an anarchist while simultaneously advocating for much bigger government?
