Not in the least surprised

Consider the source:

Millennials in San Diego sign petition to remove American flag

Millennials in San Diego signed a petition to ban and replace the American flag, as seen in a video published on Monday.
Mark Dice, a media analyst, started a fake petition that called for the removal of Old Glory and then filmed himself as he walked around San Diego asking young adults to sign it. Even with the approach of Fourth of July weekend, a surprising amount did.
"These millennials have been indoctrinated by their communist college professors, indoctrinated by the liberal media, poisoned by today's pop culture into really being ashamed of America and so afraid to be politically incorrect that … they are now willing to replace, ban the American flag, issue a new flag," Dice said on "Fox and Friends" on Tuesday.
Dice called the results "absolutely astounding," when more people than he expected readily took up the cause of his fake petition.
I suppose we should replace it with something like this:

Ever notice that the "gay rainbow" is missing indigo? Are they discriminating against colors some people are physically incapable of seeing?

Or this:

With all the schools banning wearing the flag, or even having a flag sticker on your car, and all the PC bullshit about "triggers", it was inevitable that these morons would be programmed to respond like this...

It's not even just a fake petition:

Although Dice's proposition was fake, he is not the only one who has requested the removal of the stars and stripes. Louis Farrakhan, Nation of Islam leader and civil rights activist, spoke in favor of taking down the American flag following the Charleston, S.C., church shooting.
"I don't know what the hell the fight is about over the Confederate flag. We need to put the American flag down because we've caught as much hell under that as the Confederate flag," said Farrakhan at the Metropolitan AME Church in Washington, a little less than a week ago.
Again, consider the source, but still - it got reported as real news.
