    DNC Convention 2016: Soviet Flags, Palestinian Flag – BUT NO US FLAGS

    Jim Hoft Jul 26th, 2016 8:28 am 4 Comments

    The Democrat Convention kicked off Monday in Philadelphia.

    The far left Bernie supporters marched with Soviet flags down the street.

    Democrats waved the Palestinian flag from inside the Wells Fargo Convention Center.

    Didn't see any Palestinian flags at the #RNC. @TheDemocrats aren't hiding anything anymore. #DNCinPHL
    9:19 PM - 25 Jul 2016

    But NO US FLAGS were visible from inside the convention hall.

    Of course, you couldn’t move inside the RNC without seeing an American flag.

    You dumba$$. There were two or three MASSIVE flags hanging behind the speakers. You really need to steer clear of all the propaganda that you seek out. It's making you look more and more foolish every day (and every day I think it's impossible for you to look more foolish)

    Interesting that other media outlets mentioned the same problem at the DNC convention, at 9:36 PM.
    Perhaps AFTER they got called on their Anti-American visuals, they tried to fool some people with some visuals?


    Fishie... He love him some Democrats with lots of Communist Soviet Union Flags.


    No Visible American Flags Present At The Democrat Convention

    PHILADELPHIA — The Daily Caller is at the Democratic National Convention and it doesn’t look like there are any American flags.

    The stage is bland and grey, with no red, white or blue present. A thorough look at the crowd present also turns up no American flags.

Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) delivers remarks on the first day of the Democratic National Convention at the Wells Fargo Center, July 25, 2016 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. An estimated 50,000 people are expected in Philadelphia, including hundreds of protesters and members of the media. The four-day Democratic National Convention kicked off July 25.

    The Republican National Convention in Cleveland on the other hand was filled with Americana.

    I never read or post on this board, but figured on a slow work day I'd check it out. How is this even a story, or how is one side trying to use this as saying one party likes America more than the other? With all of the problems these two moron candidates bring to the table, the lack of flags at a convention is really even a story?

    Democrats' extremist anti-Americanism is consistent with the Radical Leftists' policies of an Anti-Country, pro-Soviet Union-style Global Government, run by Unelected, Unaccountable Dictators.

    From one of many earlier accounts of Radical Leftist goals. This is line with Obama's similar comments about his goals for having no countries and no organizations that can oppose one all powerful world government.
    In recent years we've documented the true motivations that are driving the global warming scare.

    Christiana Figueres, the executive secretary of United Nation's Framework Convention on Climate Change, who aspires to be U.N. secretary general, has admitted that

    the goal of environmental activists is to destroy capitalism.
    ----

    Ottmar Edenhofer, who co-chaired the IPCC working group on Mitigation of Climate Changefrom 2008 to 2015, has conceded that the climate crusade is an effort to shackle capitalism and establish a global welfare state.

    Russian State Flag
    [​IMG]

    The existing three-color Russian national flag was adopted by the Order of President Boris Yeltsin oecember 11, 19f D93, replacing it's Soviet-time red predecessor. According to the Constitution, "The national flag of the Russian Federation consists of three equal horizontal stripes - white, blue and red."

    This is the third time this three-color flag becomes the national symbol. The first to use it was Peter the Great, who on January 20, 1705 ordered to hoist this flag as a trade one on all Russian ships on Moscow, Volga and Dvina rivers. In those times the lower red stripe symbolized the Earth, the blue stripe - the sky, and the upper white stripe meant the world of God. At the same time, according to the Russian tradition, white color meant nobility, blue - honesty, red - courage and love.

    Since 1993 there has been no 'Soviet' flag.

    Funny how the Democrats for Bernie only used the Communist Soviet Union Flag.

    Cool history lesson but flying the "old" Soviet flag at the political convention of one of your country's major political parties should perhaps invite the same scorn as, oh, say carrying the Nazi Flag. Similarly odious political movements represented by both with enormous body counts as their legacy. I guess slaughtering Kulaks and political opponents is hipper than slaughtering Jews, the disabled, etc.

    Again - I see no proof the pictured protest was in Philly yesterday. Please provide support for your assertion.

    What is puzzling to me is why were protesters in Cleveland burning the US Flag? I still haven't figured that one out yet.

    Philadelphia streetlight with DNC 2016 Convention Banners at Democrats' Communist March for Bernie

    [​IMG]


    Not only Philadelphia streetlight with 2016 DNC Convention Banners in the below pic...

    But you can see City Hall with William Penn's Statue on top, in Downtown Philly above the Blue Bernie sign, which is across from the Communist Flags carried by the Democrats for Bernie.

    You may not like TJ's links - perhaps the Huffington Post is more your style, but there appears to clearly be Soviet flags and marchers right next to a "Broad Street - Avenue of the Arts" street sign in one of the pics above. That is, of course, a segment of Philadelphia's famous Broad Street.

    Perhaps you need it date stamped and a Soviet Flag draped over the Love Sculpture or the Rocky statue to accept the assertion as irrefutable. I figure if this story is false, it will be quckly debunked.

    Tonight is black victim night at the DNC. Michael Brown's mother will speak. Her son robbed a store and then tried to kill a cop before he was shot. No mention of dead cops at the DNC. They will use the false narrative of hands up don't shoot. Will they show the video of the Gentile Giant strong-arming an Asian ? If you like dead cops vote Democratic.

    TJ - he'll say they're just red flags as you can't see the hammer and sickle.

    By the way, it's William Penn on top of City Hall, but good looking out.

    TJ, you seem very concerned about flags. But I see no replies from you in my message about the Trumpster being bought and paid for by Russia. You are so stupid that you can't see the forest for the trees. An ignorant John Bircher like you should be crapping his pants over this. Instead you are worried about flags. I said a long time ago that you don't have an ounce of common sense and every day you prove me right.

    http://www.snopes.com/flags-banned-at-dnc/

    Several right-wing web sites offered the misleading claim that no American flags were on display at the 2016 Democratic National Convention

    ORIGIN:On 26 July 2016, the Facebook page "Uncle Sam's Misguided Children" posted a photograph purportedly showing the Palestinian flag on display in the audience during the opening day of the 2016 Democratic National Convention (DNC), along with the claim that American flags had been banned at the event because they were "offensive to so many Democrats":

    Several other right-wing web sites known as purveyors of misinformation, such as The Gateway Pundit, Barenaked Islam,and The Daily Caller also published articles reporting that no American flags were present at the DNC:

    The Daily Caller is at the Democratic National Convention and it doesn’t look like there are any American flags.

    The stage is bland and grey, with no red, white or blue present. A thorough look at the crowd present also turns up no American flags.

    Your buddies in the Sanders camp were flying the North Korean flag outside of the Wells Fargo Center today. Must be their idea of Utopia.
