Wherever do people get the idea that leftists don’t love America and its freedoms? Maybe from displays like this:
Communist protesters at the University of California, Berkeley staged a demonstration [last] Wednesday railing against the “capitalist system” and “American imperialism” by encouraging students to stomp the American flag alongside them.
The protesters were a part of Berkeley’s “Revolution Bookstore,” a communist establishment near campus frequented by communist academics and students alike. The organization’s website details its goals of “an actual revolution for the emancipation of humanity” and sings the praises of Bob Avakian, the cult-like leader of the American Communist Party.
Students at UC Berkeley told Campus Reform that the group routinely comes on campus to step on the American flag and to convince students to join the communist revolution. Normally they wait outside the entrance, but this time, they pressed deep into campus in the hopes of getting a positive reaction from leftist students.
The communist “revolutionaries” chanted “America is committing genocide” and “we need a communist revolution,” according to witnesses at the scene, one of whom posted photographs of the demonstration on Facebook.
Encouragingly, even at famously liberal Berkeley few students appear to be interested in accepting the commies’ invitation to stomp on Old Glory on behalf of collectivist totalitarianism.
