An Antifa protester in DC attempted to light the American flag on fire on Saturday, but gave up when they could not figure out how to use the matches.
The aggressive far-left demonstrators were in the city to whine about the Demand Free Speech rally being held by supporters of President Donald Trump who were protesting against Big Tech censorship. Speakers included Laura Loomer, Gavin McInnes and congressional candidate/YouTuber Joey Saldino.
Right now "the right" is protesting massive billion dollar corporations restricting speech
"The left" is protesting American citizens fighting against big corporations.

The black clad activist, with a t-shirt wrapped around his head, fiddled with the matches for approximately 30 seconds before realizing that his attempt to be edgy had failed.

Failed flag-burner was not the only Antifa member being mocked online during the event.
There were also creepy drag clowns and another member of Antifa did their best Bane impression while pointlessly wearing a gas mask without any filters on it, rendering it completely useless.
A mob of white Antifa members also harassed a black Trump supporter and stole the MAGA hat off an Asian man.

The cosplaying activists did not stop the Demand Free Speech rally from taking place, instead spending most of their day harassing random tourists and failing to break through police lines.
