An Antifa protester in DC attempted to light the American flag on fire on Saturday, but gave up when they could not figure out how to use the matches.
The aggressive far-left demonstrators were in the city to whine about the Demand Free Speech rally being held by supporters of President Donald Trump who were protesting against Big Tech censorship. Speakers included Laura Loomer, Gavin McInnes and congressional candidate/YouTuber Joey Saldino.
The black clad activist, with a t-shirt wrapped around his head, fiddled with the matches for approximately 30 seconds before realizing that his attempt to be edgy had failed.
Failed flag-burner was not the only Antifa member being mocked online during the event.
There were also creepy drag clowns and another member of Antifa did their best Bane impression while pointlessly wearing a gas mask without any filters on it, rendering it completely useless.
A mob of white Antifa members also harassed a black Trump supporter and stole the MAGA hat off an Asian man.
The cosplaying activists did not stop the Demand Free Speech rally from taking place, instead spending most of their day harassing random tourists and failing to break through police lines.

MSNBC host paints Trump supporters as inhumane psychopaths ahead of ICE deportations
By Mark Finkelstein
On her MSNBC show this morning, Joy Reid slurred Trump supporters as a bunch of sadists who want to see people at the border cruelly mistreated.
Here was Reid.
“I think I quote you every week, Adam: the cruelty is the point. That’s why they’re doing it, right? His base wants to see this. And so he’s showing them that he can dehumanize them. Isn’t that message coming from the White House, that essentially you don’t have to treat these people like human beings. Who cares?”
Reid’s mention of quoting Adam Serwer every week was a reference to his article in The Atlantic, “The Cruelty is the Point.”
Note: after agreeing with Reid that the White House is sending a message that the people at the border are “not real human beings,” Serwer added the caveat that the Trump admin is concerned, for PR reasons, about images of children allegedly being mistreated.
Here’s the transcript:
9:53 am EDT
JOY REID: You know, the dehumanization of these folks, it did remind me, you know, Chris Hayes put up a post, it brings back sort of the memories of the way people treated others during the invasion of Iraq. The sense of, these aren’t even people. Or in our own past. The way that people were able to treat others, whether it’s from enslavement on. They’re just not people so we don’t have to think of them as human beings.

I think I quote you every week, Adam: the cruelty is the point. That’s why they’re doing it, right? His base wants to see this. And so he’s showing them that he can dehumanize them. Isn’t that message coming from the White House, that essentially you don’t have to treat these people like human beings. Who cares?
ADAM SERWER: I do think the message is coming from the White House that these people are not real human beings and you don’t have to treat them properly.

Democratic frontrunner and former VP Joe Biden has been mocked for saying that no election interference happened on his watch. Some took his words as a denial of the establishment narrative about 2016 ‘Russian meddling’.
Risking an own goal against fellow politicians and the ‘intelligence community’, which accuse Russia of meddling in the 2016 US election to sow discord and help Donald Trump ascend to the presidency, Biden told CNN on Friday that no election interference happened on his watch, as he unloaded on both Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin.
While Putin’s trying to undo our elections, he’s actually undoing elections in Europe. Look at what’s happening in Hungary, look what’s happening in Poland, look what’s happening! You think that would happen on my watch or Barack’s watch? You can’t answer that, but I promise it wouldn’t have, and it didn’t,” Biden told host Chris Cuomo.
The counter-intelligence probe into possible links between the Trump campaign and Russia that later grew into the full-blown Russiagate conspiracy theory, was launched by the FBI in July 2016, half a year before Biden and Obama left the White House. The events that were scrutinized by federal investigators and later by Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team on their desperate hunt for a Trump-Russia connection, including the infamous Trump Tower meeting of June 2016, all happened on Biden’s watch. Cuomo, however, didn’t challenge the ex-VP on the timing discrepancies.
The self-confessed Gaffe Machine’s words prompted derision as well as confusion on Twitter, with some asking if Biden has suddenly broken ranks with fellow Democrats in their belief there had been a Kremlin-led malicious campaign to undermine American democracy.
“So Biden’s admitting that Putin and Russia didn’t interfere with the election that happened during his watch?” one person wrote.
Some went as far as urging Biden to retire from politics, calling his campaign a “disaster.”
Biden emerged as the clear frontrunner in the Democratic Party primary race before the first debate, which saw the veteran politician’s lead dwindle. A poll last week showed Senator Kamala Harris (17 percent) only five percentage points behind Biden (22 percent).
Tech giant cuts entire feature from country after publishing sensitive information

Google has suspended an email alert system in New Zealand after the government slammed the search giant for publishing suppressed details about a murder case.
The “Google Trends” automated alert defied a court order that suppressed the name of a murder suspect by putting the accused killer’s name in an email’s subject line.
“In light of the concerns you expressed this week, Google has also suspended Google trends email about searches trending in New Zealand,” saidGoogle’s government affairs and public policy manager Ross Young in a Friday email. “This means that people will no longer receive emails on any trending searches for New Zealand and provides even further assurance against any recurrence [of a similar incident].”
Young was responding to Justice Minister Andrew Little’s accusations that Google had not done anything to change their alert system since the incident and that the tech titan was “flipping the bird” at the country’s legal system.
“Google’s contempt for New Zealand law, and for [the murder victim’s] family is unacceptable, and I will now be considering my options,” said Young earlier this week, later urging Google to not be “evil” and to “do the right thing,” in a clear jab at the company’s “don’t be evil” motto.
Interestingly, an earlier response from Google on the incident was reportedly downplaying the need to change their Trends system because the murder story was already “extensively reported on by overseas media.”

Democrat congresswoman Veronica Escobar oversees a staff that goes to Mexico to actively undermine Border Patrol by advising migrants on possible U.S. government mistakes with regard to their deportation cases, according to members of Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and the National Border Patrol Council in El Paso, Texas, in the heart of the migrant invasion zone.
“What we believe is happening is Veronica Escobar’s office is going…to basically second-guess and obstruct work already done by the Border Patrol,” a National Border Patrol Council member stated in an interview with the Washington Examiner.
Escobar came to political prominence by agitating for hotel rooms for illegal migrants in El Paso.
I reported in January with a New York Times-style headline, “Budget Inn Baby-Bath Attack Reveals Challenges in Finding Hotel Rooms For Migrants“:
A Guatemalan man was arrested for allegedly breaking into a Budget Inn motel room in El Paso, Texas to grope and assault a woman while she was holding her one-year old baby, giving the child a bath. The alleged victim was also Guatemalan. This arrest spotlights the challenges that social justice activists face in their efforts to house the hundreds of migrants dropped off by ICE agents at an El Paso bus station after a court decision won their release.
The Budget Inn is reportedly housing some migrants for the time being. Francisco Tojin Maldonado’s arrest for burglary of habitation, in connection with the baby bath attack, has yet to be reported widely by the mainstream media.
Since the migrants dropped off at the bus station cannot be detained, it is unclear what is going to happen to them.
Texas Democrat congresswoman Veronica Escobar recently put the issue in perspective, highlighting the scourge of Sun Bowl college football players taking up El Paso hotel rooms that could be used to store migrants.
“We have these teams coming in to play in our Sun Bowl this weekend and the hotels are booked. We’re facing a real crisis coming up … to find places for all of these (migrant) families,” stated Veronica Escobar.
Finding hotel rooms for so many people can indeed be frustrating.
Nevertheless, voices in the community are striving to enact change.
“But if I don’t live in El Paso, if I haven’t had the experience that we’ve had, if I live in Michigan, Iowa, Oregon, the northern border, I don’t … I may not know any better, and ‘Shit, the president of the United States just said that there are rapists and criminals and murderers who will chop your head off coming to get us. Fuck yeah, build a wall.’ And so … I can see responding that way,” saidDemocrat Texas congressman Beto O’Rourke, who has taken to the streets of El Paso to communicate his message.
