Last night's Brooklyn flag-burning rally sparked outrage among veterans and patriotic Americans.

Disarm NYPD, a group which seeks to rid the police force of its firearms, planned a rally to burn flags at Fort Greene Park, claiming that Old Glory is “a symbol of oppression and genocide.”

Pete Hegseth went to the rally expecting to see hundreds of anti-flag protesters. Instead, he found hundreds of vets and concerned citizens who were there to stand up for the flag.

"We're going to defend this flag ‘cause America is the best country on the planet, don’t ever forget that,” one woman yelled.
