Antifa militants marched in Bellevue, WA Tuesday night while lighting American flags on fire and chanting “death to America” in protest of a law enforcement appreciation dinner hosted by the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.
The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA) originally planned to host a dinner honoring the Seattle Police Department, but the Seattle Police Department rescinded the invitation after facing criticism from Seattle City Councilmembers for attending an event with an association that allegedly holds “anti-LGBTQ” views.
