A Florida man was caught on tape burning a man’s American flag on video last week in Orlando. The homeowner’s CCTV system revealed a man approaching the flag on his porch and lighting it on fire.
Watch the shocking act of vandalism here:
It’s unclear why this man, who as of Sunday night remains at large, was motivated to destroy an American flag on a community member’s private property. One neighbor in the community, Jessica Harper, stated that she had no idea why the anonymous suspect would engage in such behavior.
““It was heartbreaking to see that someone was willing to go to those lengths. It looks like somebody was having a good time with some alcohol earlier in the evening, which probably played a part, but still doesn’t justify the action.”
Generally, only the most vicious of leftists will be inclined to engage on hatefully destructive behavior such as American flag-burning. It’s possible the unknown suspect may have Antifa or other terrorist associations.
Antifa has been documented burning American flags en masse at protest events and street battles against right-wing demonstrators.
Antifa-linked demonstrators were seen burning the flag in protest of President Donald Trump’s Fourth of July military parade, expressing their distaste for all things American.
The homeowner who already suffered the loss of his American flag replaced the burned flag with a new one over the weekend. Orlando police are said to be investigating.
In the meantime, Orlando community members are on watch for an unAmerican bandit who possibly intends to strike against the American national symbol once again.
City of Denver Unanimously Votes to Rename Columbus Park “La Raza Park”
There might come a time when nothing in the US is named after Christopher Columbus.
The Denver City Council unanimously voted to rename Columbus Park last week Monday, and now it will be named “La Raza Park.”
“La raza” is Spanish for “the race,” which has connotations with Latino identity politics. A Denver Post article tells us that the phrase “viva la raza” (long live the race) was the “rallying cry of the Chicano movement in the 1960s and ’70s.” The Chicano Movement encouraged Mexican ethnic and cultural solidarity with a particular emphasis on their indigenous heritage. The movement, however, rejected assimilation and thus the term “Mexican-American,” essentially branding themselves as the Hispanic version of the Black Power movement.
Councilwoman Amanda Sandoval claims that the unanimous vote was an act of officially naming a park that has “always” been unofficially called by its new name. “La raza is a word of unity and about celebrating community,” she said without a hint of irony.
The reason for officially renaming the park is about what you’d expect, namely because Christopher Columbus is irredeemably associated with colonialism and genocide and is thus not fit to be honored in any way, shape, or form.
Arturo Gonzalez, a retired professor, said that “Mexican Chicanos and Indigenous peoples have suffered genocide over the last 500 years. We live with that trauma. We continue to live with that trauma.”
Renaming parks, buildings, and schools that were previously named after so-called “problematic” or “white supremacist” historical figures is nothing new, of course, but the practice has accelerated over the past several months due to the hysteria following the George Floyd riots.
Big League Politics has covered many instances of this phenomenon. One of the most recent instances included a San Francisco school district renaming Abraham Lincoln High School because black lives apparently “didn’t matter” to him:
