Antifa Planning Flag Burning At Gettysburg On July 4th
By Jacob Engels
Published June 22, 2020 at 1:15pm

According to , Antifa domestic terrorists are planning to desecrate the Gettysburg National Cemetery and set the American Flag ablaze on Independence Day.

Gettysburg, the site of the bloodiest battle of the Civil War and on American soil, is respected and revered by every sane American. As they have demonstrated since 2016, and in particular since Antifa and BLM have fused into a violent rage mob, the modern progressive and leftist movement has lost all sense of decency and sanity.   ...

I looked at the Facebook page. They also encourage the destruction of all Confederate monuments, statues, etc., and helpfully provide a list of place to find them. It may be fake, I honestly don't know.

Isn’t Pennsylvania open carry? Maybe if patriots, peaceful, armed patriots, show up with their own display of flags, and make a peaceful showing of  protesting the protesters, the contrast to the news cameras could be quite ironic for the viewing public.

This is a federal park, no?  If so, close the park on the 4th and maybe Trump can dispatch the military to protect it.

Peaceful armed patriots??  While I have absolutely no problem with that, somehow I don't see it ending well with rioters on the other side.

I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it; to support its Constitution, to obey its laws; to respect its flag; and to defend it against all enemies.

Statues on Gettysburg’s battlefields are history lessons rather than racist symbols, park official says
Chris Pastrick | Monday, June 22, 2020 9:23 a.m.
Pittsburgh Tribune-Review

...   Despite the historical lessons the statues at Gettysburg teach, Martz acknowledged vandalism is not only possible but inevitable.

“We’re concerned about (the statues) all of the time,” he said. “We’ve had a number of things happen to them since they were put in.”

Whether it’s having a bayonet mended or a stone corner repaired, Martz said making repairs to historical markers is nothing new.

As part of the National Park Service, defacing any part of the Gettysburg battlefield — including all statues, monuments and markers — is a federal misdemeanor and punishable by three to six months in prison and up to a $500 fine.   ...

Three years ago, there were rumors of an Antifa attack on Gettysburg.
Quote
Antifa: We're not coming to Gettysburg
    BY JIM HALE Times Staff Writer Jul 1, 2017

Anti-fascist activists do not plan to rally here today, according to a statement released via the CentralPA Antifa Facebook page.

"The rumored event in Gettysburg this Saturday is a complete fabrication. No antifa groups have planned a rally there that day. Instead we have planned to participate in the anti-Trump demonstration in Philadelphia, along with many other antifa and anti-racist groups in PA and surrounding areas," said the statement issued Friday. ...  Gettysburg Times[/url[
Of course, a lot has changed since then (who knew they could get worse?!). If they really intend to do something this year, they won't telegraph it - they wouldn't want the government to be able to prepare adequately.

If this post is for real and not just some joker stirring the pot then I would say that Antifa has planned an A$$ kicking and have won the coin toss to recieve.

This year??  They're already rioting and tearing down statues and monuments.  They are here.

I believe it is. Here's what the Gettysburg National Military Park website says:
Quote
Firearms in National Parks: The law governing possession of firearms inside a national park changed on February 22, 2010. Visitors may possess firearms within a national park unit provided they comply with federal, state, and local laws. The role of the responsible gun owner is to know and obey the federal, state, and local laws appropriate to the park they are visiting. Please remember that federal law prohibits firearms in certain park facilities and buildings. These places are marked with signs at public entrances. The role of the responsible gun owner is to know and obey the federal, state, and local laws appropriate to the park they are visiting. For more information about gun laws in Pennsylvania, please visit the Pennsylvania State Police web site.

They'll damage and destroy whatever they can. Will they dare to do it at this special place and, if so, will authorities have the backbone to stop them?

They also know that outside the inner city they can count on getting their asses handed to them. Especially if they give advance notice.

Not sure of the validity of this claim, and GP has been suspect at times.  I don't think they are that stupid to cross this line.

Rural setting outside of urban cover, ....  with a likely response, law enforcement and patriots.  Naaaaaw, I don't believe this.

Well, it seems to me that for starters, someone needs to video every vehicle, who gets out, license plates, who gets in.

Be a real shame if some of those vehicles broke down...or had flats, or somehow couldn't leave.

I think it is a hoax or a bluff, because I don't think these cowards have the balls to operate out an urban situation where they  can't weave in and out of streets, alleys, and buildings.

It likely is, but they have been pumped to think they are rough and tough.
Some have even been taking classes in how to fight.
They haven't dealt with Blue Collar America yet.

Good ol' boys are slow to anger, but there are some 'hot buttons' they don't want to push.

Defiling graves isn't too well received, no matter which side they were on.

Don't they have reenactments at Gettysburg on July 4th?

My idea?  Combine the Union and  Confederate forces...  give them live ammo, and then turn them loose on Antifa.

Not sure, but I believe the coronavirus knocked out this year's events. Glenn Beck was hoping to have some sort of gathering there on that weekend (not sure where), but it was cancelled.

Would that be a civil civil war or lead abuse?
