A new “challenge” is sweeping the internet, but this one is absolutely disgusting.
It’s called the “Eric Sheppard Challenge,” named after a New Black Panther member who is wanted by police in Georgia after they found his gun on a school campus during a protest. He has yet to be caught.
The challenge consists of filming yourself destroying an American flag to show support for Sheppard, and the sad thing is many liberals are actually doing it!
Finally, U.S. Marine veteran Shane Lawler had had enough. He posted a video online letting the world know exactly what he thinks about this “challenge,” and his rant is epic.
“What we have is a group of people who are challenging other groups of people to stand on the American flag and desecrate it, dance on it, jump up and down on it, all kinds of silly things,” the fed-up veteran said.
He added that the challenge is “ridiculous” before telling people why desecrating a flag is so despicable when you look at our history.
“I’d like to point out the fact that at some point in history, my ancestors, your ancestors, everybody’s ancestors fought in some way, shape or form to be a part of this country and reside in the nation over which that flag flies,” he said. “And here you are standing on the flag, standing on what your ancestors fought for.” – TellMeNow
