Prominent communist activist Joey Johnson held a press conference at the White House Wednesday afternoon announcing his plans to burn an American flag on Independence Day at 5pm at Lafayette Park.

Inviting onlookers to “imagine a world without America,” Johnson stepped on the flag as he announced his intentions flanked by his fellow activists with the Revolutionary Communist Party.

“It’s a symbol of genocide,” he said. “It’s a symbol of invasion.”

“This flag is dripping with blood.”
