Again: Faux outrage, with a few RW talking points thrown in for good measure. Read the link I posted.

I'm going to play with my grand kids now. They make more sense.

Let me help you: The title to my linked article is:

Capture the Flag
Several right-wing web sites offered the misleading claim that no American flags were on display at the 2016 Democratic National Convention.


False claim.
Yes, your link stated "several right-wing websites...."

Noreastah's link didn't mention anything about a flag ban unless I missed it in the article.

Many Leftists are Offended by the US American Flag - articles pop up regularly about their "offense". A variety of public schools and Universities regularly "ban" the US Flag. Some neighborhoods and employers "ban" the US Flag.

It's no surprise that the US American Flag is not much seen or prominent at the Leftist Convention.
It would be silly to think it would be with that crowd. American Patriotism is a dirty phrase to some people.

as they say - a picture is worth 1,000 words.

video embedded shows them taking down MS flag.

If there was ever a place that needs a nuke dropped.
Set an example.

I noticed last night during a speech (forgot who - not Bill), it was right after she was nominated... when defeating ISIS was mentioned, no one clapped.

I don't know if they're OFFENDED by the American flag, but as the OP will show, they find the MS flag unacceptable and held a sit-in until it was removed but waiving the Palestinian flag (or ANY country's flag) at the DNC is very appropriate
