Lead story at Fox Nation right now:

This takes you, after a couple of clicks, to blog posts from HotAirPundit and Weasel Zippers, both of which quote an Accuracy in Media story about an anti-war rally in D.C. in March at which a flag was burned. We're told:

One thing for sure, no one burned an American flag at any Tea Party gatherings, but they sure did here. Did you see any reporting about the hate-speech and flag burning? I guess MSNBC was too busy that day.

Yeah, no right-winger ever harms the U.S. flag -- right?


Rep. Betty McCollum, D-Minnesota, was one of several members of Congress who reported receiving obscene and threatening letters after voting for the health care reform bill passed by Democrats on Sunday....

Her office also reported receiving part of a shredded American flag doused in gasoline and a typed letter addressed to McCollum, Rep. Keith Ellison, Sen. Amy Klobuchar and Sen. Al Franken - all Democrats from Minnesota.

"Each of you receives part of a shredded American flag," the letter read.
"It represents Obama and your liberal filth. Open the bag, it's covered in the stench you've brought to our government ... Because of you, we are now a country of dirt, shame, corruption and slime."

(Emphasis added.)

Did you see any mention of this at Fox Nation, Accuracy in Media, or those right-wing blogs? Me either. I guess they were too busy that day.
