The Utah chapter of the Black Lives Matter organization posted a very anti-American message, calling Old Glory a “hate symbol” this week, and is now playing the victim card.
According to these BLM activists, if you have an American flag in front of your home, you’re “not safe to be around” and they “know the person flying it is a racist.”
The chapter also thinks that you’re not very educated if you fly the flag of your own country. In the post, the author says that when they see you have the American flag they “question your intelligence. We know to avoid you. It is symbol of hatred.”
The chapter founder Lex Scott went on the record with Fox News on Wednesday and confirmed the group wrote the post.
The author of the divisive post responded to outraged comments:
“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.”
The criticism of the American flag and what it stood for didn’t stop there. The group posted a follow-up statement and doubled down on their previous statements. Scott commented within the statement on the way she feels when she sees the American flag in any capacity:
“I feel fear. That is not up for debate,” she wrote. “I feel like the person flying it is racist, because every racist that I have come in contact with is either wearing that flag or flying that flag. I feel as if I should avoid that person because they may be dangerous. I told the world that the American flag is a hate symbol. And the world erupted in rage.”
