Nation of Islam leader screams, ‘Put the AMERICAN flag down!’; social media SLAMS back

Just as conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh predicted, the American flag is now under attack, and it’s coming from the radical, race-baiting head of the Nation of Islam, Louis Farrakhan.

And while attacking the flag, Farrakhan denounced the demonstrations of racial unity that followed last week’s murder of nine black worshippers at a church Bible study in Charleston, S.C.

“White folks march with you because they don’t want you upsetting the city, they don’t give a damn about them nine,” he said.

Farrakhan’s remarks were met with cheers and applause from the audience.

He also claimed — without evidence — that police officers praised Dylann Storm Roof, the accused shooter in last week’s mass murder, telling him when they took him to Burger King after arresting him that, “You did a good job. Kill all them [bleep.]”

Later into the speech he made reference to the American flag.

“I don’t know what the hell the fight is about over the Confederate flag. We need to put the American flag down,” he said. “Because we’ve caught as much hell under that as the Confederate flag.”

He added, “Who are we fighting today? It’s the people that carry the American flag.”

The day before Farrakhan made his Washington, D.C. address, conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh predicted that the American flag would soon come under assault.

“Do not doubt me,” he said. “The next flag that will come under assault — and it will not be long — is the American flag.”

Conservatives took to social media to express their disgust over Farrakhan’s assault on Old Glory.
