Video: Brave vet confronts thugs stomping on Stars and Stripes: ‘I fought for that flag!’

Video of an aging man who confronted black youths stomping on an American flag during protests in Ferguson, Missouri, Monday is drawing an army of disgusted supporters on social media.

“It’s about what your flag represents that’s doing this to us,” one of the men responds, stomping enthusiastically on Old Glory.

What the flag represents? Like free schools, maybe? A free press to broadcast images of “peaceful protesters” turning a city upside down?

The social media response was furious.

Considering the state of public schools dominated by Democrat teacher unions, it’s probably both.

But veteran or no veteran, a white man going into a crowd like that one was taking his life into his hands and at least one social media user praised him for it.
