TODD STARNES: No Buildings Burned, No Looting or Violence at “LIBERATE” Rallies
I’ve noticed that when liberals protest they burn the American flag. When conservatives protest they wave the American flag.
And there was lots of flag waving this week as thousands of freedom-loving patriots staged rallies to protest the recent assault on our civil liberties.
Church have been ordered to close their doors. Worshippers have been slapped with $500 fines. Businesses shut down. Citizens are not allowed to walk on the beach or paddle board in the ocean. In some places you can buy marijuana but you can’t buy gardening supplies.

Many states and cities, run by Democrats, have been turned into de facto socialist police states where citizens have to wait in long lines for food. It’s shameful.
By and large conservatives do not engage in protest marches and rallies and there’s a legitimate reason why — we have jobs.
But the Democrat overlords shut down our businesses and they shuttered our church houses. So all of us gun-toting, Bible-clinging Deplorables have quite a bit of free time on our hands.
And when Democrat leaders in places like Kentucky, Louisiana, Virginia, Michigan, Minnesota and California decided to tread upon the U.S. Constitution, We The People decided to fight back.
Around 100 people have gathered in downtown Huntington Beach to say that they want the government to end the coronvirus shutdown immediately. Many here say it’s doing more harm than good to the country @KCBSKCALDesk @CBSLA pic.twitter.com/UkI0k8jmJ2

The street stayed open with a steady stream of cars carrying flags and signs driving through slowly. The sidewalk immediately in front of Gov Walz’s home was pretty packed. #ReopenMN #LiberateMinnesota pic.twitter.com/E4kccUniT0

The Mainstream Media and Democrats portrayed the freedom-loving patriots as a bunch of rabble-rousers and racists endangering the lives of their fellow citizens.
But for the record, there were no acts of violence. There was no looting or pillaging or plundering and not a single building was burned by “disenfranchised” voters.
Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer insinuated that some of the protesters in her state had white supremacist leanings.
“I saw someone handing out candy to little kids barehanded,” the governor told reporters. “People are flying the Confederate flag, and untold numbers who gassed up on the way here or grabbed a bite on the way home. We know that this rally endangered people. This kind of activity will put more people at risk and, sadly, it could prolong the amount of time we have to be in this posture.”
She was also bothered by signs bearing the Nazi Swastika.
Well, that’s because Governor Whitmer has implementing policies that are more reminiscent of the Third Reich than the American Republic.
It is imperative for all of us who cherish freedom and liberty to invoke the Spirit of 1776 and vow to never be enslaved to the Democrats or anyone else who would dare to burn our Constitution.
So let us now begin to liberate our nation. Live free or die, my fellow countrymen.
