Where the flag flies

The same American flag that recently flew over the graves of a million dead soldiers on Memorial Day, flew yesterday next to the flag of North Korea, the worst human rights violator on Earth, where hundreds of thousands of political prisoners have been systematically murdered, where the population is indoctrinated from birth and millions are starved to death by design.

And when Trump shook the hand of Kim Jong Un, the dictator of this nationwide prison camp, who has personally ordered the execution of hundreds of people, many of them with anti-aircraft weapons and blowtorches, including members of his own family, I couldn’t help but think of all the Americans who can’t wait for our president to come back home and take care of these “sons-of-bitches” who disrespect the flag and our soldiers by kneeling at football games.
