Aaron "jay" danielson American Flag Antifa violence Intelwars Physical attack portland protest watch Woman of color

Antifa militants gang up on woman of color, drag her to ground by her hair, try yanking American flag from her — but she doesn’t let go

Antifa militants reportedly were caught on video Sunday ganging up on a woman of color and dragging her to a Portland, Oregon, sidewalk by her hair in an attempt to yank an American flag from her.

Sadly the violent left-wing militants — despite having what most would assume is a distinct physical and numerical advantage — came away empty-handed.

What happened?

According to journalist
Andy Ngo, Antifa attacked conservative demonstrators — one of who was a woman of color holding a U.S. flag. When one of the militants grabbed her flag pole from behind and tried to take it from her, she wouldn’t let go.

Another joined in to help try to pull it from her — but the dynamic duo failed to gain the upper hand.

With that yet another leftist jumped in — a female apparently — and grabbed the flag-holding woman by her hair before dragging her down to the sidewalk. And the victim still wouldn’t let go.

As a crowd gathered around the scrum, amazingly an Antifa female blocked and got in the face of a man holding a Thin Blue Line flag who towered over her by at least a foot. It appeared he was coming over to intervene.

But in the end, the attacked woman didn’t need any help. Just seconds later she emerged from the pile — still holding her American flag while Antifa was forced to settle for handfuls of air and yet another embarrassing failure.

Here’s the clip. Content warning: Language:

After the victim walked away, a man from the pro-American group faced off and argued with an Antifa militant who hollered astoundingly that the fight was “woman on woman” as his voice repeatedly cracked. Seems puberty is better late than never.

Anything else?

The pro-American demonstrator who was arguing with the Peter Brady wannabe was wearing a “Justice for Jay” shirt. It’s a reference to Aaron “Jay” Danielson, a police and Patriot Prayer supporter who was fatally shot by an avowed Antifa militant after a rally backing President Donald Trump in late August.

According to KOIN-TV, supporters of Danielson gathered downtown Sunday at the spot where he was shot and killed, and “it appeared as if people with left-leaning and right-leaning ideologies got in some heated discussions in the streets. Some people reported being maced or hit with pepper spray.”

Sgt. Kevin Allen told the station that police were monitoring the event but no arrests were made. But the protests continued and at least six people were arrested in Portland Sunday evening.

911 American Flag Baylor university Conservatives Flag display Intelwars Sensitive content Trigger warning

Baylor University places ‘sensitive content’ warnings at 9/11 flag memorial created by conservative students. Oops.

Seems Baylor University deemed a display of 2,977 mini-U.S. flags — in memory of the victims of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks — a tad much for the campus community to emotionally handle without some kind of trigger warning, so they provided one: “Sensitive content” signs.

What are the details?

Baylor’s chapter of Young Conservatives of Texas put together the display — a tradition that’s been going on at the school for years, Campus Reform reported, citing a news release from the student group.

But this year Baylor Student Activities told YCT it would place “expression activity” signs near the flags, the outlet said, adding that the mandate was handed down fewer than 24 hours before the event.

So YCT demanded an apology.

“We ask that the university formally apologize to the Baylor community for displaying the signs at our memorial in order to assert their commitment to the victims of 9/11,” Campus Reform noted, citing the news release.

And the outlet said the school indeed apologized to YCT as well as the group’s adviser.

What did the school have to say?

“Baylor University fully supports the 9/11 display of American flags depicting the thousands of lives lost as a result of the attacks that took place 19 years ago,” Lori Fogleman, the school’s assistant vice president of media and public relations, told Campus Reform.

She went on to explain to the outlet what went into the “sensitive content” signs: “Out of reverence for the exhibit of flags and in knowing that its moving symbolism could evoke a wide range of emotions, signage was placed near the display notifying those who passed by of its potential impact. This is a standard part of our process regarding outdoor displays which we implemented last year based on feedback from our campus community. We regret that the signage we used has taken away from the intent of the display and apologize for any misunderstanding this may have caused.”

Fogleman added to Campus Reform that the university has instituted a new policy — and all temporary on-campus displays “that may evoke an emotional reaction” will be labeled as such.

“In this case, the exhibit’s purpose was to remember the thousands of lives lost in the 9/11 attacks; in essence, it was a temporary memorial to those who died on that tragic day,” she told the outlet. “Our process should have produced a notice informing students, faculty, staff, and visitors of the upcoming 9/11 display and reminding them of its solemn and reverential meaning. Unfortunately, the execution of this process was very poor.”

American Flag Good News Heartwarming Intelwars Military patriot Police Veteran

‘Vigilant’ and ‘gracious’ police officer acts when she notices a fallen American flag. She didn’t know, but it was caught on video.

A police officer in Peoria, Arizona, noticed a fallen American flag while on patrol in the wee hours of the morning last week, and she acted. She didn’t know it, but her patriotic action was caught on camera.

The Peoria Police Department’s Officer Montes, a military veteran, saw a wind-damaged American flag lying on the ground at 3:23 a.m. on the morning of Sept. 9, FOX 10 Phoenix reported. So she picked the flag up, rolled it around the attached pole, and left it on the doorstep for the owner to find later that day.

It was all caught on video by a Ring doorbell camera, and the video was shared by the Peoria Police Department’s Twitter account.

In a note shared with the police department, the flag’s owner thanked Officer Montes.

“I don’t know who she was, but a Peoria PD Officer on watch came to my house at 3:23am this morning. I have her on Ring video,” the note reads. “My American flag had apparently separated from it’s mount during the wind last night, she was vigilant and noticed, and she was gracious enough to roll it up and leave it by my garage door. If she’s reading this, thank you and much respect.”

Air Force American Flag Coronavirus face mask Intelwars North Carolina Patriotism US Military Veteran

Air Force veteran ordered to remove American flag face covering for grocery store job — but he’s not having any of it

Air Force veteran Gary Dean told WCTI-TV he’d been wearing his American flag face covering for his job at the Food Lion in Havelock, North Carolina, without any problems for months.

Image source: WCTI-TV video screenshot

But Dean said a manager informed him Tuesday afternoon out of the blue that his patriotic face covering was verboten — specifically because it showed the stars and stripes, the station said.

“Apparently corporate came down and said ‘somebody was offended by the image of the American flag on the face covering,'” Dean recalled to WCTI.

Image source: WCTI-TV video screenshot

But the station said the 69-year-old military vet wasn’t having any of it — and Dean quit.

‘Out of principle’

“As a veteran, my dad being a World War II hero, my best friend killed in Vietnam, out of respect for them I can’t just say … ‘I’ll take my flag and put it in my pocket,'” he told the station, noting such a concession would be against his values. “I had to quit, out of principle.”

Dean added that it also was shocking that the sight of an American flag would be offensive to anyone, particularly in a military town, WCTI noted.

“Why would anybody for any reason be offended by the American flag, the stars and stripes?” he asked the station.

What did Food Lion have to say?

WCTI said it reached out to Food Lion, and the company replied that while it respects the American flag, corporate policy “prohibits associates from wearing clothing with writing, insignia, or symbols.”

Image source: WCTI-TV video screenshot

Here’s the company’s full statement via the station:

At Food Lion, we have great respect for the American flag. Like many other organizations, we also have policies that guide the attire and conduct of associates in the workplace. As part of our effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and to protect the well-being of our associates and customers, we’ve required associates to either wear reusable face masks provided by Food Lion or choose to wear a different face covering while working. However, all face coverings must adhere to standards set by the company and communicated to each of our more than 77,000 associates. The policy prohibits associates from wearing clothing with writing, insignia or symbols. The dress code is meant to ensure a consistent and professional representation of our associates inside of our stores.

But WCTI noted that the Havelock store does feature reserved parking spaces for military veterans marked with American flags.

‘An emotional subject for me’

Dean told the station he served in the Air Force from 1970 to 1976: “Four of those were active, two of those were inactive reserve.”

But while many years have passed since then, he keeps those memories alive in his home, which is full of patriotic objects. Dean showed a reporter from the station a photo album of images from when he was in the service — and some of them aren’t easy for Dean to revisit.

Image source: WCTI-TV video screenshot

“That’s my friend who was killed in Vietnam, he was a ranger,” he told WCTI, pointing at a picture of himself and another man. “David Toler. Got shot right through the heart, they brought him home. That’s an emotional subject for me. When you lose a friend that is fighting for your freedoms, you get angry.”

Image source: WCTI-TV video screenshot

Dean added to the station, “You get very angry when people disrespect the flag.”

He also told WCTI that the American flag face covering he was using is a print and wants to make sure it’s clear he wasn’t using an actual American flag to cover his face. But while he’s not angry at the store managers, Dean is still perplexed at why it was so offensive.

“I love this country,” he told the station. “I love that my dad went off and fought for my country, nearly got killed for this country but came back and raised a family.”

“I love everything about that flag,” Dean told WCTI. “So, yeah, that is my priority.”

American Flag David mulugheta Intelwars Kneeling protests Mike Ditka National Anthem Patriotism Tmz sports

Prominent sports agent savages Mike Ditka over pro-America remarks: ‘He traded his helmet in for a white hood’

David Mulugheta, president of Athletes First, says famed NFL coach Mike Ditka is racist for his remarks about respecting the American national anthem.

In a recent interview, Ditka told TMZ Sports that he believes there are only two options when it comes to kneeling protests: respect the national anthem or leave the country.

What are the details?

In a Sunday tweet, the Athletes First president wrote, “This doesn’t surprise me at all. Mike Ditka tradded his helmet in for a white hood as soon as he retired from football. Racism hiding behind faux patriotism is still racism.”

Athletes First represents Aaron Rodgers, Derwin James, Earl Thomas, and more.

In the now-viral TMZ Sports interview, Ditka, 80, said, “If you can’t respect our national anthem, get the hell out of the country. That’s the way I feel. Of course, I’m old-fashioned. So, I’m only going to say what I feel. I think there’s a way you protest, and there’s a way you don’t protest.”

He added, “You don’t protest against the flag, and you don’t protest against this country who’s given you the opportunities to make a living playing a sport that you never thought would happen. So I don’t want to hear all the crap.”

‘He’s a racist’

Later on Sunday, Mulugheta responded to a Twitter user who insisted that respecting the national anthem is not racist.

“I totally agree…and the sun is hot,” he wrote. “Neither have anything to do with people kneeling during the anthem.”

By Monday, he was on a “Ditka is racist” roll and doubled down on his initial remarks condemning the famed and well-loved NFL coach.

In the tweet, Mulugheta offered “evidence” of Ditka’s racism, but refused to provide context to the evidence he set forth to bolster his incendiary remarks.

“Dikta isn’t a racist simply because he believes people should stand for the anthem, it’s because of his many racist beliefs,” he explained in a follow-up tweet. “One example, he claims ‘there has been no oppression in the last 100 years.’ To be clear, segregation ended less than 55 years ago. So yea he’s a racist.”

‘I have absolutely seen oppression in society’

In 2017, Ditka addressed the kneeling protests and said, “All of a sudden, it’s become a big deal now, about oppression. There has been no oppression in the last 100 years that I know of. Now maybe I’m not watching it as carefully as other people. I think the opportunity is there for everybody. … If you want to work, if you want to try, if you want to put effort into yourself, I think you can accomplish anything.”

He added, “Is that the stage for this? If you want to protest, or whatever you want to protest, you’ve got a right to do that, but I think you’re a professional athlete, you have an obligation to the game. I think you have to respect the game. That’s what I think is the most important thing. I don’t see a lot of respect for the game. I just see respect for their own individual opinions. Opinions are like noses, we all have one. Some are good. Some are bad.”

He, however, retooled his remarks and issued a heartfelt apology almost immediately following the criticism he received.

“The characterization of the statement that I made does not reflect the context of the question that I was answering and certainly does not reflect my views throughout my lifetime,” Ditka said in a statement at the time. “I have absolutely seen oppression in society in the last 100 years and I am completely intolerant of any discrimination.”

Ditka added, “The interview was about the NFL and the related issues. That’s where my head was at. I was quoted in the interview stating, ‘You have to be colorblind.’ I stated that you should look at a person for what they are and not the color of their skin. I’m sorry if anyone was offended.”

9/11 memorial American Flag Firefighter memorial Flag cut down Intelwars

Nothing is sacred: American flagpole cut down at 9/11 firefighter memorial? in New York State

Police are searching for vandals who allegedly cut down a flagpole holding an American flag at a 9/11 memorial in Washingtonville, New York.

The memorial honors five firefighters from the area who lost their lives during the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center on September, 11, 2001.

According to the Times Herald-Record, the severed flag pole was discovered early Wednesday morning and reported to police. Washingtonville Police Chief Brian Zaccaro said that the vandals used a tool to cut through the composite material pole and left a message on the four or five feet of pole that remained in place.

Police are opting not to disclose the message while the investigation is still ongoing.

Police reportedly suspect that the responsible parties were also involved in damaging a sign of a church about a half-mile away, due to the fact that an eagle figure which removed from the flagpole was left near the toppled church sign.

The Times Herald-Record describes the memorial as a “somber, granite-and-brick tribute to the ‘Washingtonville Five’ and the other 9/11 victims.” It was completed on Sept. 7, 2002, before the first anniversary of the firefighters’ deaths.

The fallen “Washingtonville Five” heroes are firefighters Mark Whitford, Bobby Hamilton, and Gerry Nevins; Battalion Chief Dennis Devlin, and Lt. Glenn Perry.

In response to the news, Washingtonville Mayor Joseph Bucco said the village will replace the flagpole and announced a $3,000 reward for any information regarding the incident.

American Flag Black Lives Matter Flag burning Independence Day Intelwars Protesters

VIDEO: Far-left protesters celebrate July 4th by burning, stomping American flag outside White House

Far-left protesters celebrated American independence outside the White House on Saturday by burning and stomping on the American flag.

Video taken from outside the White House following President Donald Trump’s Independence Day speech showed protesters defiling Old Glory while shouting, “America was never great!”

“Know what this f***king flag represents,” one protester says, before leading others in a chant.

“One, two, three, four, slavery, geno-cide, and war,” the protesters scream. “Five, six, seven, eight, America was never great. America was never great. America was never great.”

(Content Warning: The following videos contain strong language):

According to The Hill, the demonstrations were organized by a group with communist principles.

The flag-burning was organized by the Revolutionary Communist Party. A speak out before the event was held by Refuse Fascism, which also held protests nationwide on July Fourth calling for the removal of Trump and Vice President Pence from office. Refuse Fascism posted on its website that it also created and then tore down a “statue” of Trump outside of Trump Tower in New York.

Other videos showed alleged Black Lives Matter protesters say, “F*** the 4th of July, F*** the American flag,” while other videos showed demonstrators dance on the American flag.

American Flag Autonomous zone Autonomous zone video Chaz Chaz video Chop Intelwars

CHAZ citizens torment black man holding American flag in autonomous zone, call him a ‘race traitor’

The Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone in Seattle hasn’t been the welcoming euphoria that many promised when it was established. A street preacher was physically assaulted, and a protest leader demanded white people in the CHAZ give money to black people or face retribution. On Saturday, a black man holding an American flag was berated by CHAZ citizens.

Video taken by Elijah Schaffer of BlazeTV, host of the “Slightly Offens*ve” podcast, shows a black man being tormented by a mob in the autonomous zone. The crowd of mostly white people in the CHAZ hurl insults at the black man with the flag, who is not engaging the protesters.

“Keep on walking you race traitor a** b*tch,” one person screamed on a megaphone. “Is that your boyfriend, race traitor?”

“When you fly that flag it’s offensive,” a man wearing a Soviet Union-era ushanka hat told a woman holding an American flag as “Can You Feel the Love Tonight” from the “Lion King” soundtrack blared in the background.

A masked man dressed in all black stole an American flag from a young woman walking with the black man. The group with the American flags told the crowd that they have peacefully come to the autonomous zone. “We’re not here looking for a fight,” the woman said.

Someone in the crowd called the group carrying the American flags “white supremacists.”

“If they’re going to come in here with the flag being disrespectful, they can get the f*** out,” a woman in the crowd told a man, who appeared to have some authority in keeping things somewhat secure in the CHAZ.

Some residents of the CHAZ attempted to forcefully take the black man’s American flag. A man screamed, “Bring it down!”

There is a movement from some in the autonomous zone to change the name from “CHAZ” to “CHOP,” which stands for “Capitol Hill Occupy Protest” or “Capitol Hill Organized Protest.” The people of independent area of Seattle may be compelled to drop the “autonomous” part of their domain since they had to call the city’s fire department to put out a literal dumpster fire.

American Flag Black Lives Matter Drew brees Drew brees on kneeling protest George floyd protests George floyd rioting Intelwars Tony dungy

Tony Dungy comes to the defense of Drew Brees and his comments against insults to the American flag

Former NFL coach Tony Dungy came to the defense of New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees and his comments against insults to the American flag and the country.

Brees’ statement was excoriated by many in the NFL, including some of his teammates on the Saints.

“We have to have Drew Brees saying what he said,” said Dungy on the Pat McAfee show on Thursday.

“I don’t, I don’t downgrade Drew for that. OK, that’s what he said. He may not totally understand, it may be not exactly the way he wanted to express it, but he can’t be afraid to say that,” he explained.

“And we can’t be afraid to say, OK, Drew, I don’t agree with you but let’s sit down and talk about it, we can’t just say anytime something happens and we don’t agree with it, ‘Hey I’m done with that and this person,’ and that doesn’t make sense,” Dungy added.

‘That’s not gonna fix anything’

“We have to be better than that, this battle is not gonna be won by demonstrating and throwing bricks through windows, it’s not gonna be won by the government saying hey we’re gonna bring out these weapons and dominate the streets again,” he continued. “That is not gonna fix anything.”

He went on to explain how his past informed his opinion on the matter.

“My dad was a veteran, he would not have taken these protests as disrespecting the flag. He would have taken it as people trying to make the change in our great country for the better.”

Brees apology

Brees originally said he would never agree with anyone disrespecting the American flag, but he later issued an apology for his statement after facing heavy backlash by those supported the kneeling protests.

“I am sick about the way my comments were perceived yesterday, but I take full responsibility and accountability,” he concluded. “I recognize that I should do less talking and more listening… and when the black community is talking about their pain, we all need to listen. For that, I am very sorry and I ask your forgiveness.”

Here’s the video of Dungy’s comments:
