Ted Cruz’s far-left challenger, Beto O’Rourke, has countless harebrained – even dangerous – ideas he thinks are good. We can now add stripping a VFW hall of American flags to that list.

According to the Examiner, O’Rourke’s campaign had rented out a Veteran of Foreign Affairs Hall for a campaign rally in Navasota, TX, and requested that the VFW Post 4006 Commander Carl Dry take down the American flags in his building ahead of the event.
From the Navasota Examiner:
“I do not normally attend rental events, but I attended Saturday to make sure things ran smoothly,” said Dry, who noted there were only two requests he could not allow at the VFW Post. “They wanted to open the doors (to the Flight Deck Lounge) and I couldn’t allow that and they wanted to take the flags down, I didn’t only say no, I said hell no, you don’t take the flags off the wall. I can’t believe any American would ask us to do that and I don’t know why he wanted them down or what he was going to put up instead.”
This is an interesting turn of events, but not a surprising one. O’Rourke is increasingly revealed to be a hard-leftist by all accounts, and the fact that he wants to take the flags down signals that he wants more than just leftists to feel comfortable at his rally. O’Rourke’s stances on considering illegal immigrants “members of our community” and his stance that he’s open to abolish ICE can lead one to conclude that some of the people he’d like feeling comfortable there aren’t even American.
It remains unclear what, if any, respect O’Rourke has for this country and the sacrifices of its selfless veterans.
