A Marine veteran was shocked to learn that the American flag he was hanging in his driveway had been burned to ashes.
The left has resulted to burning American flags as a form of protest. While freedom of speech unfortunately protects that right, it doesn’t allow them to vandalize someone else’s property.
Brian Ellison woke up one morning and saw the burnt flag in the driveway of their Arizona home.
“When I looked down, it was the American flag that we fly on the front of our house,” Ellison told KTVK-TV. “It had been burned. It had caught fire. And then I looked at the flagpole and all of the flag had burned off of the pole.”
“This was not right,” said Ellison’s wife, Lisa. “It’s personal.”
“Somebody may think it’s their right to burn the flag, but it doesn’t make it right,” said Ellison.
The Ellisons have since replaced the flag.
“I want everyone in Ahwatukee to get their own flag and all of us stand proud and say this is not going to happen anymore,” said Lisa Ellison.
