    Now they probably*love*the cops.

    A group of flag-burning anti-NYPD protesters needed New York’s Finest to save their skin from a gang of angry bikers who tried to pummel them in a Brooklyn park for setting Old Glory ablaze Wednesday.

    The fiery stunt by a few dozen members of the group Disarm the Police led to a chaotic scene at about 8 p.m. in Fort Greene Park, when the activists enraged 40 members of the Hallowed Sons Motorcycle Club by roasting the flag on a tiny barbecue grill.

    “They took off like little b—hes,” said one biker. “They lit the f–king flag and took off running once they got slapped once or twice.”

    The anarchists had announced on social media that they had planned to burn the flag in protest of NYPD policies, drawing a large group of flag-waving counterprotesters, including the bikers.

    While it’s illegal to openly burn anything in Fort Greene Park, the self-styled anarchists managed to find a loophole in the law that allows cooking in closed barbecue grills.

    Thus, they started to roast the flag, but they didn’t burn it for long. One of the bikers rushed forward in a fit of rage and kicked over the grill, sending embers flying. He then doused it as members of the pro-flag crowd chanted “USA! USA!”

    The bikers then started trying to rough up the protesters — who were quickly saved by members of the same police force that they criticize.

    The protesters were shielded by the cops and escorted out of the park.

    “I served in the Marines,” said counterprotester Brian Christopher, 23. “We defend this flag. We are ready to die for it. When I see people burning it and showing complete ignorance, it’s very offensive.”

    No arrests were made in the scuffle, and the group’s flag-burning stunt went up in smoke.

    burning flags is uncivilized, but attacking someone for extremely expressing their opinion is also uncivilized and illegal.
    Wilders is a piece of gutter trash, a gutless populist who has no morality to speak of.

    People that freak out about flag burning need to get lives.

    It's just a piece of cloth.

    There is no flag I can possibly think of that would bother me to see getting spat on and then burned. To me, all flags mean almost nothing...especially those that have no words on them.

    Though I am very concerned about people trying to stop others exercising free speech and freedom of expression.

    I have no desire to burn a flag (or even own one). But I am totally against others being forcibly stopped from doing whatever they want (that does not physically hurt/threaten someone else) to the flags they own.

    As a matter of free speech, rights and logic you are correct. Nonetheless, I know men who have killed and men who have been killed under that flag; free speech, rights and logic do not encompass all my views on the matter.

    They change what our flags stand for. 100 years ago our flag stood for Australian nationalism, now it stands for diversity. I'm sure it's the same with yours.

    However, I offer no sympathy and privately think you are perhaps a traitor. As such, The only flag that should be publicly burned is the Confederate flag.
    I think most of us know which people in this country harbor a treasonous spirit. Long live the Stars and Stripes, and long live the Stars and Bars!

    don't tell me you would object to the swastika being flown above german government buildings while approving the confederate flag being flown above our own government's buildings, because that would be a hypocritical position to assume
