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.

@TwistAnonymous @MidwestPatrick I wonder if they’ll also reject the public dollars that the flag represents as well?

@MidwestPatrick Those jimmies should have their utilities shut off and welfare suspended. Spoiled, ungrateful children.

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.
