Those too young to remember the Vietnam War probably don’t know about the protests by Buddhists against the US installed Diem Regime in South Vietnam. One after another Buddhist Monks committed suicide by setting themselves on fire on the public streets in protest.
In 2011 – Tibetan Buddhists did the same thing o protest the repressive Communist Chinese regime –
Now we have the first American to perform the same act to protest Trump’s illegitimate election.
Anyone doubting the absolute disdain held by some for the despicable, and illegitimate Trump regime, better get a clue. It isn’t a very long road between self immolation and a suicide bomb vest.
A man was burned Tuesday night after apparently setting himself on fire in the street outside the Trump Hotel on Pennsylvania Avenue NW, according to a public safety source with knowledge of the incident.
The source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak publicly, said that arriving rescue personnel found a 45-year-old man who had been using a lighter and an accelerant.
No motivation could be learned.
However, a construction worker in the area said he saw a man surrounded by flames, uttering the name of President-elect Trump in what appeared to be an angry manner.
The incident occurred in the roadway just outside the hotel on Pennsylvania Avenue.
The man was taken to a hospital with what were described as third-degree burns on about 10 percent of his body.
