The group of idiots thought they were making a difference while holding up a large “Black Lives Matter” banner all while burning the American flag in Queensboro Bridge and the Queens Midtown Tunnel (pictures below):

You might not be able to make out what they are saying at first, but if you watch that video above over and over again, you can make out a couple phrases:
“That’s offensive to me. Burning the flag… I spent 12 years protecting that flag!”
Whatever side of the race game you might be on, and whatever you might think of #BlackLivesMatter, we can all align ourselves to one thing:
Don’t mess with the flag. It might just be THREAD and cloth to you, but to us REAL Americans, it’s a symbol of livelihood, hard work, and freedom.
Marching for black lives, but destroying the flag that many have died for. Classy.
