Fed Ex driver Matt Uhrin was driving his delivery truck in Des Moines, Iowa when he saw a bunch of losers burning an American flag by the side of the street. What he did next was nothing short of heroic.
When did our nation become so wussified that burning an American flag with a mask or bandana covering your face was considered “cool?” Note to losers in this video…burning our flag with a mask on your face doesn’t make you cool, it makes you an anti-American loser. Period.
An Iowa City Press-Citizen photographer captured the incident in which Matt Uhrin used a fire extinguisher to put out the blaze before taking the flag from protesters. The demonstrators said they were protesting against what they call the Republican agenda, which includes positions on gay rights, civil rights and the controversial Bakken oil pipeline.
Here is the video showing Matt Uhrin, an American hero, taking on a whole crowd of losers to defend our flag. It’s hard not to shed a tear when you see how bravely he defended the honor of our US flag against this large group of degenerates who have no idea our flag stands for.

Police cited two protesters, Kelli Ebensberger, 21, of Iowa City, and Paul Osgerby, 23, of Ames, for open burning, which is a simple misdemeanor.
The incident even prompted an online petition Friday demanding that FedEx not fire Uhrin.
The petition, which has collected more than 11,000 signatures as of Saturday evening, reads: “Let’s make sure Matt Uhrin keeps his job at FedEx. He was standing up for our American flag and should be commended, not punished.”
Uhrin has been praised on social media for his actions, some calling him a hero.
