Yesterday was the start of the DNC Convention in Philadelphia, and people noticed there wasn’t a single American flag to be found. However, the ones spotted there will make every patriots’ blood boil.
Apparently, patriotism was put on the back burner so that grievances could be the focus of the event, with speakers touching every subject from racism to low wages to college snowflakes having to actually pay back student loans (the pity). But while grievances weren’t in any short supply, Old Glory wasn’t anywhere to be found in the entire arena during the hours-long event.
Oddly enough, while people weren’t too quick to celebrate their American heritage, there were plenty of other flags present to represent everything our nation used to be opposed to. Which ones? Well, have a look:

Yes, Palestinian flags were there. Also, the Soviet flag made an appearance too.
Even looking at the stage was disappointing. As the Daily Caller noted, it was “bland and grey, with no red, white or blue present. A thorough look at the crowd present also turns up no American flags.”
Given the Land of Opportunity is what made their convention, which was filled with minorities, women, and others who claim oppression, even possible, you’d think they would show a little more appreciation for the one symbol that’s supposed to unite us all as Americans. But no, while the entire theme of the evening was unity and bringing people together, divisiveness, hate-mongering, and race-baiting ruled the night as their anti-American attitudes were on full display.
It’s utter sickness that these people take full advantage of our nation and its benefits while at the same time disparaging it every chance they get. If they hate it here so bad, then perhaps it’s time for them to start considering countries that are more aligned with their beliefs, like Venezuela, where the food lines have grown so long people are leaving the nation just to feed their families.
