At few times in our nation’s history have We The People found ourselves so divided.
We have allowed ourselves to be politically corralled into two, and only two, distinct teams in the 21st century, all at the behest of an out-of-touch mainstream media who are using this division to sell television advertising slots to major corporations. It’s an unhealthy and shallow view of our national culture, and it has led to scenes of chaos in the streets of America.
The latest chaos comes to us from the posh neighborhood of Beverly Hills, where anti-Trump protesters gathered outside of one of the President’s 2020 reelection fundraisers and set an American flag ablaze.

The scene was ugly, according to eyewitnesses.
Beverly Hills police were on the scene and had to respond to multiple fights, ultimately putting an end to the brawls and separating the groups. No arrests were made following the scuffles, although several people were detained.
“All my years, I’ve never seen that,” said Gregg Donovan, a Trump supporter. “I was very disappointed in both sides. I took a neutral stance. I just stood there with my sign the whole time, but the burning of the flag really hurt.”
While the fights were taking place, Trump was nearby at a fundraiser hosted by real estate developer Geoffrey Palmer, a major Republican donor during the 2016 presidential campaign.
Such clashes have regrettably become the new norm here in the United States, with political observers growing concerned over the possible escalation of such violence as we near the 2020 election itself.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
