A Palestinian flag flew inside the Democratic National Convention at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia Monday night.

The flag was reportedly raised by #ProgressiveforPalestine, a group with a mission to unify pro-Palestinian groups and ideas under one banner.

While the foreign flag was on display, it looked as if it was the only such symbol on the floor. Few red, white and blue flags were hoisted at the same time. Several news outlets, including Fox News, later reported that the DNC had forbidden the flying of the US flag because it was offensive to so many who were in attendance. The source of that lie was UncleSamsMisguidedChildren.com, which suggested that US flags were banned because they “were offensive to so many Democrats.” Fox News ultimately corrected its dreadful error. But the reason that whopper was even momentarily credible is that on the first day of the DNC, there really were few American flags on display.

There are also reports of NO AMERICAN FLAGS being displayed at the DNC on monday, but clearly a Palestinian flag is flying in the room?

Who let the idiots in?

And Israeli flags were burned outside!

Only after RNC and Trump supporters and Trump made remarks the American flag was brought in.

I also noticed almost all speakers including the first lady all said "G_d bless" and not "G_d bless America!".

Clearly showed how they feel about America! The first lady wasn't proud of America until her husband became the nominee... entitlement people!
