I read this disturbing story on the Telegraph and must say I am in shock.
We all dislike Tom Hicks and George Gillett, but burning the U.S. flag is out of order, there are thousands of Liverpool Supporters in the U.S.A. (Including myself) who are outraged by this. Watching our club being destroyed is already hard enough but now on top of it we now have to deal with this. The U.S. flag is a sacred symbol for all Americans and it is not fair to inflict this on us.
The picture shows three morons participating in the flag burning so we should not panic, every country has it’s morons (hey we have Hicks & Gillett) but we should still condemn this behaviour. Some of the media is reporting that Spirit of Shankly members were responsible for the flag burning however the march was not even organised by Spirit of Shankly so it is obvious they (the media) are using this story to fuel more flames.
@saveliverpoolfc is planning to organise a protest march on the 4th of July dubbed as LFC Independence Day to coincide with the US Independence Holiday. I have now publicly urged the group to reconsider this protest as all it will do is create more animosity.
The U.S.A. is not destroying Liverpool F.C. only Tom Hicks and George Gillett are.
