“Innocence of Muslims” protestor inhales fumes from burning U.S. flags, dies

If you find any hint of poetic justice in the following story, courtesy of the Daily Mail, you are a racist:

A Pakistani protestor has died after inhaling smoke from burning U.S. flags during a rally against the anti-Islam film Innocence of Muslims.

Abdullah Ismail died in Mayo hospital in Lahore having complained of feeling unwell during the angry demonstrations in the eastern Pakistan city yesterday.

Around 10,000 people are estimated to have taken part in the protest organised by the group Tehreek Hurmat-i-Rasool.

These colors don’t run. And if you burn them, neither will your cardiopulmonary system.

If the events of the past week are any indication, I assume the White House and the State Department will soon condemn our flag for what it has done.
