The Republican National Committee (RNC) is sending a bold message to dozens of top ranking Democrats, meant as a reminder of how lucky they are to live in the United States.
The RNC plans on sending around 70 Democrat officials packages containing the American flag, and a copy of the country’s flag code. This follows a number of protests in recent weeks, where the flag has been burned and desecrated by left-wing activists.
Earlier this month for instance, Nike recalled a patriotic shoe design meant to celebrate the Fourth of July after a number of Democrats, including multiple presidential candidates, called the shoe racist for having the original Betsy Ross flag on its heel.
.@JulianCastro: I was glad to see Nike pull the Nike Betsy Ross American flag shoes.

In another Independence Day debacle, a number of anti-American protestors burned the flag outside of the White House ahead of President Trump’s patriotic “Salute to America” event.

Just last week, a group of protesters in Colorado stormed an ICE facility and replaced the American Flag with the Mexican flag in an apparent protest against ICE’s planned crackdown on illegal immigration.
19 out of the 20 Democrats who appeared in the first primary debate last month will receive the packages as well as multiple Democrat Party leaders, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and Democrat National Committee (DNC) chairman Tom Perez. RNC officials say they hope Democrats will respond by recognizing how blessed they are to live in America.
