Shouting ‘black power’ and ‘Resist!’…Signs read ‘Don’t mess with our Queen Maxine’…
(Daily Mail) Maxine Waters supporters set fire to the American flag outside the Democratic firebrand’s Los Angeles office Thursday as way to counter an anticipated protest by a far-right militia group who never showed.
A modest few dozen people made their rebellious appearance despite a previous request by the congresswoman that supporters not be baited into confrontation with the Oath Keepers.
South Los Angeles residents joined activist groups as well as union workers, church leaders and more for the midday demonstration.
Shocking photographs captured outside the field office show the crowd stomping on the flag before circling around the stars and stripes as they cheer when it erupts into flames.
The Democratic counter protesters were heard chanting as they shouted: ‘This is not the American flag, this is their flag.’
The group had been shouting a slew of other slogans such as ‘black power’ and ‘Resist!’
Signs read things such as: ‘Don’t mess with our Queen Maxine,’ ‘We support you Maxine our congresswoman’ as well as ‘Trump/Pence must go!’ and ‘Deport Trump.’
The Los Angeles Police Department said there were no injuries and no arrests from the demonstration…Original Source…
