Utah Chapter of Black Lives Matter Declares American Flag a “Hate Symbol”

On their official Facebook page, the Utah Chapter of Black Lives Matter (BLM) declares the American Flag itself a “hate symbol” and then goes on to taunt and insult anyone who disagrees. This is a screenshot of the post:

“When we Black Americans see this flag we know the person flying it is not safe to be around. When we see this flag we know the person flying it is a racist. When we see this flag we know that the person flying it lives in a different America than we do. When we see this flag, we question your intelligence. We know to avoid you. It is a symbol of hatred.”

This sort of behavior from BLM is not the least bit new or surprising. What’s interesting and noteworthy about this story is the position it puts the Biden Administration in. Less than two months ago, the Biden Administration authorized and encouraged the U.S. State Department to fly the BLM flag over U.S. embassies worldwide. Many non-embassy government entities took the queue and flew BLM flags over their buildings as well. I am unaware of any other time in history that the U.S. government has officially authorized it’s buildings to fly the flag of a corporation (BLM is organized as a non-profit corporation). If that’s not a wholehearted endorsement, I don’t know what is.

Can you imagine if Donald Trump has made such an authorization? I think the NRA would make a good example here; it’s a non-profit corporation that is tied to a popular cause the way BLM is. If Donald Trump had authorized and encouraged government buildings to raise the NRA flag, as a celebration of Americans’ second amendment rights, the Cultural Left would have had a Chernobyl-level meltdown.

This newly affiliated partner of the Biden Administration went to taunt those who responded to the above-referenced post with negative comments such as:

“Welcome racists. We know you are big mad about the racist flag post. You will not be heard here. You will be blocked and your comments will be deleted. We will be donating $1 to AOC’s election campaign for every racist that we block. Thank you for contributing to the re-election of AOC. We will jot down your names and attribute each donation to you. Comment below to help her once again head to Washington.”

So… now that BLM has released an official statement declaring the U.S. Flag a “hate symbol,” the next logical question is to ask the Biden Administration if they agree or not. They will be forced to either publicly agree that the US flag is a “hate symbol” or publicly disagree with Black Lives Matter, which, as we all know, is not something that is allowed to happen in “civil society” anymore.

I can’t wait to see the logical pretzel that Jen Psaki has turn into to answer that question. I’m sure she’ll “circle back…”
