Flag Burner Wins Darwin Award After Nearly Killing Himself And All His Friends

Ladies and gentlemen, give it up for the winner of this year’s Darwin Award! An idiot protester in Cleveland was trying to make a bold statement about his feelings about his disdain for this country, when things didn’t exactly go as planned. A group near where the National Republican Convention was taking place started chanting “burn that flag, burn that rag!” Before you could say “viva la revolution,” the flag burner had not only set himself ablaze, but also all of his idiot cohorts.

“You’re on fire, idiot!” May have been the most memorable quote of the day, as one of the officers on duty screamed at Joey Johnson, a revolutionary communist who is known for flag burning. No one was seriously injured physically, but I’m sure it will take a good amount of time for their egos to heal.

It was the most turbulent protest since the 4-day convention started on Monday. 17 protesters were arrested after the flag burning prompted a street fight. Two of the protesters were arrested for assaulting an officer, and the others were charged with inciting violence. The chaos briefly prevented delegates and members of the media from entering the building.

Sad that the Fire Department rushed to put them out.

To truly win a Darwin award, you have to permanently remove yourself from the gene pool. These idiots survived, so they are still in it. They are just Darwin Award wannabes.
