The anti-Trumps are doing their best to bash President Donald Trump. Democrats will never accept the fact that Donald Trump won the 2016 presidential elections. Most of them thought that Hillary Clinton should become a president. Luckily, Americans played smart, and the better candidate won. But, the criticism against President Trump didn’t stop for a second.
Hillary was too confident about her victory, and she even told her supporters that Donald Trump would never enter the White House. Well, she was wrong, and now President Trump is in charge of every issue in the country. He promised to take care of all Americans, and it’s time for America to become great again. But, Bryton Mellot doesn’t share the same opinion.
The 22-year-old man from Illinois filled headlines across the country, and his move shocked every decent American. Mellot expressed his deep criticism against this country. Social networks went on fire, and everyone condemned the young man who plays games with the name of our country.
Mellot posted a controversial photo last year. He was posing with the American flag. Yes, this would have been an amazing photo, but Mellot decided that it was a good idea to burn the flag. He was charged of violating the state’s flag desecration law, but he was released, and never paid for what he did.
“I am not proud to be an American. In this moment, being proud of my country is to ignore the atrocities committed against people of color, people living in poverty, people who identify as women, and against my own queer community on a daily basis. I would like to one day feel a sense of pride toward my nationality again. But too little progress has been made. Too many people still suffer at the hands of politicians influenced by special interests. Too many people are still being killed and brutalized by a police force plagued with authority complexes and racism. Too many people are allowed to be slaughtered for the sake of gun manufacturer profits. Too many Americans hold hate in their hearts in the name of their religion, and for fear of others. And that’s only to speak of domestic issues,”read the caption of Mellot’s photo.
Although this happened last year, people still remember this incident, and we all hope that justice will find its way out.
What do you think about this? Do you think Mellot should go to jail for what he did?
