The scandalous left went too far when they ripped down the American flag and replaced it with the Mexican flag during a protest.
Whoever is advising the left needs to be fired because we are a generous and welcoming and tolerant country, but we draw the line at pulling down our flag and raising a foreign flag in its place.
If we do not draw that line we literally do not have a country anymore. A point Nikki made clear when she trashed Pelosi and the rest of the Dem leadership for their silence on the issue.
From Fox News: Former United Nations ambassador Nikki Haley on Sunday condemned prominent Democrats for staying mum after protesters demonstrating outside a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) facility last week pulled down the American flag and flew the flag of Mexico in its place.
Crews in Aurora, Colorado, restored the American flag Friday evening. The protesters also removed a “Blue Lives Matter” flag, honoring law enforcement, spray-painted it with the words “Abolish ICE,” then raised the flag upside-down, on a pole next to the Mexican flag, local media reported.
“There are no words for why the Democrats are staying silent on this,” Haley wrote. “If this is your way to winning an election, fire your strategist. This is disgusting. Love your country. And if you don’t like what is happening then tell the members of Congress to get to work and fix it.”
Fox News’ Leland Vittert asked former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, a 2020 White House contender, on Sunday whether the protesters should be condemned, but Hickenlooper, a Democrat, largely dodged the issue.
“Well, I certainly respect the American flag, and my whole life I’ve been fighting to make this country — and to make sure this country welcomes everybody, and that this flag represents everyone,” Hickenlooper responded on “America’s News HQ.”
“You know I’m old enough, I remember when people were burning the flag in protest of the Vietnam War,” he continued. “The amazing thing about this country is we’re really one of the few places on Earth where that level of freedom of speech is still protected. “I might not approve of it, but I think that freedom is something that we as Americans should recognize and say, hey, that’s part of our core freedom.”
