As America celebrated it's independence, far-left protesters showed up to the White House to burn an American flag.
The sickening anti-American display was caught on camera by reporter Julio Rosas, writing on Twitter: “Protesters outside the White House have now set a big American flag on fire while chanting: America was never great!”
WATCH (Warning: Contains Graphic Language):
Other videos surfaced online showing the deranged protesters trampling an American flag in Washington, D.C., on the nation's 244th birthday.
While the BLM protesters danced on top of the flag, they were heard saying “f*** the Fourth of July” and “f*** the American flag.”
Take a look:
The protesters committed the acts right in front of the historic St. John's Episcopal Church, which was set ablaze by rioters at the end of May.
Earlier on July 4th, President Trump released a powerful message celebrating America's independence:
On this day in 1776, the Second Continental Congress adopted the United States Declaration of Independence in what is now known as Independence Hall in Philadelphia. In taking this historic step, the Congress proclaimed “these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States.” Today, we celebrate our Nation’s independence and the vision of our Founding Fathers revealed to the world on that fateful day, as well as the countless patriots who continue to ensure that the flames of freedom are never extinguished.
The enduring commitment to the ideals of liberty and justice that have come to define our American spirit stem from our Nation’s founding. In declaring that our rights to “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness” should be safeguarded for posterity and that “Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,” our Founding Fathers launched the American experiment that espoused freedom and democracy over tyranny and monarchy. Two hundred and forty-four years later, the principles grounded in the Declaration of Independence continue to guide our Nation forward and maintain its standing as a beacon of liberty, prosperity, and opportunity for all.
Over the past months, the American spirit has undoubtedly been tested by many challenges. Yet, it is in the face of adversity that our country has had some of our proudest moments of triumph. Today, especially, we are reminded of the extraordinary feats that our Nation has accomplished since its founding nearly 250 years ago. Together, we must ensure that we live up to the ideals of our Declaration of Independence and do all that we can to protect and preserve the freedoms that make our country the greatest in the world.
The First Lady and I wish each and every American a happy and blessed Fourth of July and proudly join you in celebrating our great Nation. May God bless the United States of America.
