(NaturalNews) A group of patriots, assisted by a state police officer, took down a Chinese flag April 6 at the state capitol building in Washington state after it had been placed in a position of prominence over the U.S. and Washington state flags.

A video of the event, seen here, shows a small group of individuals holding "Don't Tread on Me" and a U.S. flag looking on for several minutes as the national flag of China was slowly lowered and removed.

As reported by All Pipeline News:

In a video that should be the feel-good story of the day and a sign that shows Americans who still love America that we still have many members of law enforcement on our side, a group of US patriots arrived at the state capitol in Washington and proceeded to take down a Chinese/communist flag that was flying between the American flag and the Washington state flag, assisted by a Washington State trooper who obviously loves our country as much as we do.

The flag was ordered up by Gov. Jay Inslee, according to the news site, in honor of an upcoming meeting with Chinese Ambassador Cui Tiankai. The news site said that the position of the Chinese flag in relation to the U.S. and Washington state flags was initially reported by state Rep. Elizabeth Scott, a Republican from the state's 39th District.

BizPac Review reported that it was unclear whether the "patriots" on the scene were actually responsible for the flag's removal, or if it was being taken down after Cui's brief visit:

It was originally reported that the protesters facilitated the removal of the flag as a video of the act made its way around social media, but the story became fuzzy when statements were released from the governor's office to the contrary.

BizPac Review also noted that, according to the Huffington Post, Jaime Smith, director of media relations for Inslee noted:

"The governor will often meet with dignitaries when they come to town. It's a matter of protocol to fly their home country's flag during their visit. Our state's Department of Enterprise Services was going to lower the flag shortly after that anyway."

Still, Scott's role seems more assured. PolitiStick reported, "Washington State Representative Elizabeth Scott pointed out the irony and hypocrisy of the state boycotting Indiana, while honoring a tyrannical regime that imprisons people for their beliefs."

Punishing Americans over freedom of conscience while kowtowing to a country that jails religious dissidents to communist rule

In a statement to the right-leaning website, Scott said:

I spent two years teaching in Red Communist China, 1989-1991.

As a State Representative (39th LD), I am working as hard as I can to preserve liberty for my children and to restore the liberty we have lost. The assaults on life, liberty, and property are daily and frankly, I was not amused to see this flag flying over our state capitol, particularly when our governor just made a big show out of 'shaming
' Indiana for joining 19 other states with legislation to protect freedom of conscience.

The irony was just too rich!

So it's okay to threaten a flower shop owner in our state with the loss of her house, business, etc., and we can mock other states for their attempts to protect freedom of conscience, but we're totally fine flying the flag of a country that still throws people into prison camps because of their beliefs?

It's time to stand up and fight for our freedoms and remind elected officials that our state and U.S. Constitutions were set up to protect our rights to life, liberty and property. That is the whole point of governments being 'instituted among men.'
