Wells posted these words defending the American Flag on Facebook on April 29:
Dear people walking and descrating the National Flag,
Not like people died under that flag to free slaves in 1861-1865, not like the 54th Mass infantry (all black infantry) with their white commander charged into a Fort under that flag. Not like MLK jr marched while CARRYING that flag. Not like myself and countless others have fought and died under that flag to provide the blanket of security that you sleep under, it's okay you feel so strongly? How about you grab a rifle and stand a post with us.... Oh wait of course you don't know anything about sacrifice or anything of that nature, everything has to be given to you because you "earned it" and you "deserve it" it's okay, we, the .05 percent of the nation with protect you.
You're welcome for that blanket,
Veterans and currently serving Military
