Troofer, Flagburner, Homeless Loser

This guy hits the trifecta:

Wight identifies himself as an independent journalist and activist, a member of small groups called the Northwoods Five and the American Patriotic Liberation Front and the larger '9/11 Truth' movement, whose adherents suspect the government was involved in the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon.

Wight said he had passed by the 5-by-9-foot flag hanging from a tree outside 400 Bridge Road in Florence several times in the past before he and a fellow Northwoods Five member decided to set it on fire last Friday night.

'It was so huge, right by the road,' Wight said. 'I considered it an affront to me.'

I can think of few better ways to draw attention to your cause than destroying private property.
