Communist group burns US flags outside Jason Aldean concert, say ‘America was never great’


RevCom (Revolutionary Communist Party) members mocked country star Jason Aldean and his No.1 song “Try That In A Small Town” outside his concert venue in Chicago while burning numerous American flags.

The incident occurred on Saturday night in the Windy City which is anything but a small town. Approximately 20 people gathered outside Credit Union 1 Amphitheatre in Tinley Park as part of a protest led by Revolution Club Chicago. The far-left group is calling for a revolution against capitalism.

“The protesters were raising awareness of RevCom (Revolutionary Communist Party), which believes in creating a Marxist revolution in America, calling the USA ‘the belly of the beast.’ The RevCom activists burned American flags before police ‘declared an unlawful assembly and said their activism alarmed and disturbed others,’ according to News2Share, who captured the videos,” Fox News reported.

“The Revolutionary Communist Party… has taken on the responsibility to lead a revolution in the U.S., the belly of the imperialist beast, as its principal share of the world revolution and the ultimate aim of communism,” RevCom’s website proclaimed.

RevCom is a big supporter of China’s brutal dictator Mao Zedong. They quote Mao’s “scientific method” and support aspects of his bloody Cultural Revolution.

“We did it in a small town! We did it in a small town!” the RevComs delusionally declared after burning American flags.

“1, 2, 3, 4, slavery, genocide, and war! 5, 6, 7, 8, America was never great!” they loudly chanted.

“Guess what Jason (Aldean)?” an activist named Rafael Kadaris told the Chicago Tribune. “We will try that in a small town. We will try that in a big city. And we will try it right in front of your concert.”

A dozen police officers ordered the group to move on and one officer had to use a fire extinguisher to put out one of the burning flags.

Leo Pargo, one of the group’s leaders, claimed that the burning of the flag was free speech as he defended communism.

“The people in the United States have been lied to about communism. This protest welcomes people who may not agree with all of Revolution Club Chicago’s tenets,” he told the Chicago Tribune in an interview.

Aldean’s song skyrocketed to No. 1. after debuting on July 14 and took the country by storm. The video has had over 35 million views.

Leftists blasted the song claiming that part of its messaging was anti-Black Lives Matter.

“Sucker punch somebody on a sidewalk, carjack an old lady at a red light,” Aldean sings in his song. “Pull a gun on the owner of a liquor store – ya think it’s cool, well, act a fool.”

“Cuss out a cop, spit in his face… stomp on the flag and light it up. Yeah, ya think you’re tough. Well, try that in a small town,” the song challenges.

“See how far ya make it down the road. Around here, we take care of our own. You cross that line, it won’t take long for you to find out – I recommend you don’t. Try that in a small town,” the song warns.

“Got a gun that my grandad gave me. They say one day they’re gonna round up… well, that sh*t might fly in the city, good luck. Try that in a small town,” the song states. “See how far ya make it down the road.”

“Try that in a small town, full of good ol’ boys raised up right. If you’re looking for a fight, try that in a small town,” the song continues, incensing Leftists across the nation.

Aldean addressed the Left’s meltdown over the song, “In the past 24 hours I have been accused of releasing a pro-lynching song (a song that has been out since May) and was subject to the comparison that I (direct quote) was not too pleased with the nationwide BLM protests. These references are not only meritless, but dangerous.”

On X, Aldean said the hit song was inspired by the “unspoken rule” of small towns where “we all have each other’s backs and we look out for each other.”

“It feels like somewhere along the way, that sense of community and respect has gotten lost. Deep down we are all ready to get back to that,” he noted.
