So-Called Conservatives at the CPAC Convention Happily Wave the Russian Flag

Some of the dumbest people on the planet?
Mod: It has become fairly obvious to anyone with even an ounce of patriotism remaining that the alt-right Trumpitista reactionaries are working very hard to sell out America's interests to Vladimir Putin's Russia. Think of the oil money to be made, and journalists to be imprisoned. But did you ever really expect to see Trump loving delegates to the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) actually waving Russian flags with the name "Trump" emblazoned on them? This happened yesterday, and here is some of the coverage. How could these people have been this clueless? Or, heavens help us all, can it be these false flag nitwits actually thought this was a good idea? 

Trump fans were waving tiny Russian flags until CPAC staff confiscated them (Vox link): Here’s an odd sign of the times. Snapchat’s Peter Hamby was at National Harbor to watch President Donald Trump’s speech to the Conservative Political Action Conference on Friday, and he saw audience members waving tiny Russian flags emblazoned with the name “TRUMP.” Staffers seem to have swiftly realized this was a bad look for a president who is under suspicion of a variety of shady ties with Russia, and confiscated them.


CPAC scrambles to control damage after attendees wave Russian flags during Trump speech (Raw Story link): Staffers at CPAC quickly scrambled to confiscate Russian flags with the word “TRUMP” written on the front that were being waved by attendees during President Donald Trump’s speech on Friday.


The trouble began when some attendees took out pro-Trump flags to wave during the president’s speech that also happened to have the same white-blue-and-red striped pattern as Russia’s official flag.

Reporter Peter Hamby notes that CPAC staffers quickly realized that its attendees were waving Russian flags, and moved to confiscate them.

In addition to the attendees waving Russian flags, journalist Sarah Posner reports at least one attendee was spotted wearing a “Make Russia Great Again” t-shirt.

ABC News’s Ali Rogin has also posted a photo of a larger version of the Russian Trump flag.


Mod: So how did this happen? How is it a room filled with supposedly "more patriotic than thou" so-called conservatives came to wave Russian flags with the Orange One's name written on them? The Huffington Post shares the news with us.

CPAC Crowd Duped Into Waving Russian Flags During Trump Speech (Huffington Post link): A pair of progressive moles with a sense of humor were apparently responsible for a grand — although short-lived — prank at the Conservative Political Action Conference that had members proudly waving tiny banners emblazoned with the name “Trump” that were actually Russian flags.

The pranksters passed 1,000 red-white-and-blue Russian flags before Donald Trump’s speech at the conservative confab in Maryland on Friday. Audience members scooped them up and waved them enthusiastically as Trump railed against the media. He also tweeted a series of attacks earlier against the FBI, accusing it of leaking information that the White House had pressured the bureau to publicly dispute reports of contact between Trump’s aides and Russia.


The flag tricksters identified themselves as Jason Charter and Ryan Clayton with the self-described “resistance” group Americans Take Action. They purchased tickets to the conference shortly before Trump was to take the podium and handed out the flags, Charter told The Huffington Post.

Charter, 22, said that the gag was intended to mock Trump’s admiration of Russian President Vladimir Putin and highlight concerns about Trump administration ties to Russia. “Donald Trump is selling out the U.S.,” he said.


The prank went surprisingly smoothly, he added. “I asked people if they wanted a Trump flag and they took it,” Charter said. “There were only about five people who said, ‘Wait a minute, this is the Russian flag.’”

Mod: I am not sure what to say here. I've always said most Trumpers are fools, but to this level of abject cluelessness? Do they really not know anything at all? And, even more importantly, will we ever be able to put this behind us?

    2. Its not the end of America. It's the beginning for America. America's resurgence. No more apologizing for America. No more leading from behind. No more trying to fundamentally transform an already great although imperfect country. No more blaming law enforcement. No more weakness. Donald Trump had a great life before. He is now faced with slander ridicule and lies for trying to save the Republic from progressives who hate America. This one solitary person is standing up to that and all good people should be grateful.

    4. We need a special prosecutor to investigate the Clintons who enriched themselves to the tune of 200 million dollars. Did they build anything No. They made their money by selling power and influence. Kind of like how the wealthiest person in poverty laden Venezuela is the daughter of leftist hero Hugo Chavez the supposed man of the people. The average Venezuelan has lost 17 pounds according to a recent report which makes sense because they don't have any food. Remember all the celebrities who embraced Hugo Chaves. That's what the left means when they want to "fundamentally transform Anerica". The recent election proved that the American people saw through the lies and don't want the "utopia" that the left has in store for us if they gain access to the levers of power. Don't recall any rioting from the Tea Party. Don't recall even an incident of conservative students shutting down left wing speakers on college campuses. The totalitarian left hates America and destroys everything it touches. Look at the Boy Scouts. Rather than come up with an alternative or competing organization they just want to destroy what it stands for. They know that if they set up a rival group that espouses leftist values it will fail. So they destroy what exists. That's the left in action. People are seeing through it and the Saul Alinski tactics. America will be great again thanks to all good patriots all across this great land and thanks to one Donald J Trump!

    6. There will always be goose steppers hiding in the shadows, but it's imperative that when they are finally feeling brave enough to expose their cowardly, malevolent ideas that those odious beliefs be exposed for all to see.

      People of good will will fight them, and they and their ideas will retreat back to the shadows. History will then judge them just as it has judged their ancestral ideological brethren.

    2. Moderator-I give the same advice to the people on this blog who are complaining about President Trump. They have their narrow political views and have no interest in the good of this country. Anyone who does not agree with them is a "Nazi or racist. They tried to put a thief and traitor in office but failed. Suck it up like the rest if us did for 8 years while obama sat in the big chair.

  13. The true nature of Trump trolls and Trump supporters in general can be found in this little tidbit that leaked from Trump troll on February 23, 2017 at 6:21 AM:

    "I love watching people in a permanent state of frustration…."

    Trump supporters' disorganized, uneducated, Fox-adled minds enjoy the suffering of those they believe are beneath them. They enjoy seeing poor immigrant families destroyed and the suffering of the uninsured sick.

    It makes them feel better about themselves, letting them enjoy their fantasies that they could have been just as wealthy as the leader of their personality cult if it hadn't been for the existence of those who are beneath them. Kool Aid drinking Trump supporters are unfortunately as repugnant as their leader.

  15. Resist.

    Fox News used fake security expert to discuss Swedish immigrant crime situation:

    On a Thursday night segment of The O’Reilly Factor, the Fox News Network presented an expert on security measures in Sweden, describing him as a “Swedish Defense and National Security Advisor,” despite the fact that the Swedish Defense Ministry has no knowledge of who he is.

  17. Sierra Madre started with primarily blue collar families and a few large landholding lords of the manor. For many decades we were ignored as not all that, while places around us were developed, then over-developed. It took a while before Sierra Madre was thought of as desirable, and then it was because they ran out of land elsewhere. Now rich people are moving in, poorer people are hanging on or moving out, and there's this incorrect perception about how wealthy everyone here is. The newer rich people are skewing the averages.
    That said, I've been really surprised that anyone here actually supports the president. I thought we were smarter than that, if not by having good educations, than by having good common sense.
