2020 long-shot John Hickenlooper refused to condemn the protesters who removed an American flag and replaced it with a Mexican one during a protest outside an Immigration Customs Enforcement facility in Colorado.Protesters assembled at the Aurora facility Friday to protest the widespread ICE raids that were scheduled to begin Sunday. Raising the Mexican flag after taking down the American flag, they also hoisted a Blue Lives Matter flag they had vandalized. The flag, which is meant to honor law enforcement, was spray-painted with the phrase "Abolish I.C.E."Hickenlooper, a former governor of Colorado, addressed the events in a Sunday interview on Fox News' America's News Headquarters.

He was a lousy governor. He'd make a disastrous president but, thank God, he doesn't have a chance. He used to own a brewpub. Predictably, his beer was terrible.

Where were the police when these illegal acts occurred? Probably told to stand down by the mayor.

This is the Medal of Honor citation for (then) 1st Lieutenant Arthur MacArthur, Jr., (General Douglas MacArthur's father): "The President of the United States of America, in the name of Congress, takes pleasure in presenting the Medal of Honor to First Lieutenant and Adjutant Arthur MacArthur, Jr., United States Army, for extraordinary heroism on 25 November 1863, while serving with 24th Wisconsin Infantry, in action at Missionary Ridge, Tennessee. First Lieutenant MacArthur seized the Colors of his regiment at a critical moment and planted them on the captured works on the crest of Missionary Ridge." The National flag and unit flag have a meaning to some that crackpots like Hickenlooper will never understand. MacArthur was willing to die to plant a flag as a rallying point for his troops. Has Hickenlooper never heard of Mount Suribachi? What a hollow shell of a man he is.

I lived in Colorado when Hickenlooper was governor. He was OK--kind of a get-along guy who stayed mostly in the middle. I guess after the reaction he faced when he said socialism was bad taught him a lesson about how to get along in the democrat party these days, hence the failure to defend the flag.

As a long-time Colorado resident, my opinion of Hickenlooper was that he was a crappy populist Governor who signed crappy anti firearm rights law(s) that he knew were ineffectual, so he could run for higher office.

Hickenlooper. What a goof. What a total lickspittle poltroon castrato invertebrate. When people deface a flag and hoist an intact foreign flag next to it, it is a triumphal declaration of vanquishment. This means the soil over which it flies is the property of Mexico; that ICE in Aurora, Colorado is under Mexican authority. This is not a mistake made by individual protesters. Together with past actions it represents a deliberate attack and invasion of the US by a hostile power - Mexico. La Raza has declared their intention to destroy this nation and so have George Soros and Barack Obama among others. We are being slowly and quietly but systematically weakened for the kill. Many people wish to ignore this fact or explain it away because to respond appropriately would take courage. John Hickenlooper, with his insipid rhetoric and dorky appearance represents a gelded class of men who are of no value, who offer nothing of substance when things get serious. He is a man who survives from the blood, courage, foresight and toil of other better men; a man who stands at the helm when winds are fair but freezes and grins vacantly when a storm blows in. He is a moral dunce. The people of Colorado should be ashamed to have ever called this pathetic excuse of a human “governor.” And if that abomination of a flag still flies beside Old Glory then for God’s sake, patriots of Colorado, lower it and tear it to pieces.

These loons are not ‘progressives’. They are anti-American flaming liberals. Changing the label does not change the ideology. The Democrats have cornered themselves into a position where they cannot speak out about liberal atrocities. You made this bed. Lay in it.

Could not bear to listen to all of his spew. It is against the law to fly any flag above the American flag. My family came to this country in the early 1600's and fought in every war. For this ? I would like to take that Mexican flag and put it where the sun doesn't shine on every protester and politician.

Media outlet Axios formed a small focus group of 12 swing voters to gauge their opinion on how President Donald Trump is handling illegal immigration. Their responses are probably not what the media expected. (Video) The voters were from Warren, Michigan, which is in Macomb County. Axios reported that the town voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016 by nearly 10 points (Axios described this as a “narrow” win but 51.9% to 42.7% is hardly narrow). Macomb County, however, voted for Trump by 48,351 votes.The group “included nine people who voted for Barack Obama in 2012 and Trump in '16, and three who flipped from Mitt Romney to Hillary Clinton.”

Pig fat residues were found on pottery shards at Durrington Walls, near Stonehenge, which have long been associated with feeding the hundreds of people who helped build the landmark New analysis has found that the evidence of lard may actually stem from bucket-sized dishes which may have been used for the collection and storage of tallow – a form of animal fat.
