Far-left “an-ti-fa-scist” and Bla-ck Lives Matters (BLM) ac-tivists sto-mped and danced on the United States flag Saturday as part of a Fourth of July prote-st in front of the White House in Washington, D.C.The ac-tivists were caught on camera by Breitbart News sto-mping and dancing the Cha-Cha Slide on the flag.
A number of those in attendance appeared to be aff-iliated with Ref-use Fa-scism, an Antifa group founded in 2017 to combat President Donald Trump’s administration. Others in the crowd were also seen wearing BLM t-shirts and identified themselves as supporters of the ca-use.
“This flag has hu-rt so many of us, so come step on this flag,” one of the ac-tivists is heard, encouraging prote-sters to join in den-igrating the flag, according to video captured by Breitbart News.
“Get [this flag] di-rty, that what this flag is, it’s d-irty, it represents f-ilth, gre-ed, cr-ime.”
The prote-st was one of several held across the country by Ref-use Fa-scism, BLM, and other far-left groups.Officially, the ac-tivists cla-im the demo-nstrations are meant to show opposition to the de-ath of George Floyd and support for te-aring down statues and monuments, which they cla-im are a symbol of America’s rac-ist and fa-scist history.

This is not the first time either Antifa or BLM ac-tivists have engaged in such conduct in front of the White House in recent months. In May, prote-sters upset over Floyd’s de-ath set several U.S. flags abl-aze, while alternatively chanting “hands up, don’t sho-ot” and obsce-nities at law enfo-rcement.
As a result of that incident and others like it across the country, Trump flo-ated the idea of sending individuals caught bu-rning the U.S. flag to “jai-l for a year” at a campaign rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma last month.
