Commie Joey Johnson announces plan to burn ‘Old Glory’ on July 4th
This just might be the biggest mistake that “pinko” Johnson has ever made, announcing his plan to burn American flags on July 4th in the nation’s capital, as President Donald Trump plans to celebrate the holiday in the city.
According to the Washington Examiner on Monday, Johnson announced his plan to be in the nation’s capital saying “I’m going to be there in D.C.” and “that rag of empire and oppression is going to burn.”
Johnson a devout Communist Party member and flag-burning activist called Old Glory “the flag of this shameless, fascist jackal Trump.”
The 63-year old political activist perhaps best known for his landmark victory in the Texas vs. Johnson case in 1989, in which the Supreme Court ruled in a 5-4 decision regarding his right under the First Amendment to burn the American Flag.
At the time Gregory Lee Johnson along with his communist counterparts were demonstrating at the Republican National Convention in Dallas, when another demonstrator handed Johnson an American flag stolen off a flagpole. Johnson then poured kerosene on the flag and set it on fire. During the burning of the flag, demonstrators shouted such phrases as, “America, the red, white, and blue, we spit on you, you stand for plunder, you will go under,” and, “Reagan, Mondale, which will it be? Either one means World War III.
Fast forward back to 2019 and the upcoming 4th of July celebrations and Johnson’s vow to once again burn an American flag.
The President has already announced that he’ll be at the Lincoln Memorial at 6:30 p.m. to prepare for “Salute to America” the annual televised festivities with fireworks, patriotic songs and military bands.
During the 2016 Republican and Democratic conventions, Johnson and about a dozen or so members of the Revolutionary Communist Party staged high-profile flag burnings.
The communist agitator has said he’s opposed to the President transforming July 4th celebrations “into a fascist extravaganza of “make America white again,’ xenophobia, jingoism, and American chauvinism.”
Adding, “And this is all dangerous to humanity. I’ll be in town to make it happen and to help expose Trump’s fascist agenda with the message that America was never great. America was built on slavery, genocide, and war,”
Johnson told the Examiner. “Instead of trying to go back to some dreamland America that never existed, we need to go forward to a world without America and everything it stands for.”
However, the President took to Twitter on Saturday saying he’s “all in” on supporting a constitutional amendment that would make it illegal to burn the American flag.
The reference was in support of a bill proposed by two Republicans, Montana Sen. Steve Daines and North Dakota Sen. Kevin Cramer that would make it illegal to burn or desecrate the flag. Daines has submitted similar proposals in the past, usually to commemorate Flag Day.
The President tweeted out his support on social media.
“All in for Senator Steve Daines as he proposes an Amendment for a strong BAN on burning our American Flag. A no brainer!”

Trump also acknowledged in 2018. after the NFL enacted a policy banning players from kneeling during the national anthem
“I don’t think people should be staying in the locker rooms, but still I think it’s good. You have to stand proudly for the National Anthem. You shouldn’t be playing, you shouldn’t be there. Maybe they shouldn’t be in the country,” are you listening “Joey?”
