A group of communist revolutionaries burned multiple American flags outside a Jason Aldean concert in Chicago on Saturday night, according to videos of the incident.
The protesters were raising awareness of RevCom (Revolutionary Communist Party), which believes in creating a Marxist revolution in America, calling the USA “the belly of the beast.”
The RevCom activists burned American flags before police “declared an unlawful assembly and said their activism ‘alarmed and disturbed others,'” according to News2Share, who captured the videos.
“The Revolutionary Communist Party… has taken on the responsibility to lead a revolution in the U.S., the belly of the imperialist beast, as its principal share of the world revolution and the ultimate aim of communism,” RevCom’s website said.
The group’s manifesto praises Mao for what it believes his use of the “scientific method” and some aspects of his Cultural Revolution.
“We did it in a small town! We did it in a small town!” the RevComs said after some in the group burned American flags.
The protesters referred to Aldean’s song blasted by critics, “Try That In A Small Town.”
