Washington Gov. Jay Inslee decided to fly a Communist China flag right next to the American flag at the Washington State capitol to honor a visiting Chinese ambassador.
Inslee, a Democrat, ordered the Chinese flag be raised right between Old Glory and the state flag outside the capitol building in Olympia.
Some local patriots, however, were not pleased and took matters into their own hands.
With the help of a Washington State Trooper, several activists lowered the Chinese flag.
