The woman riding a bike next to him watches and does nothing to stop him.

On Friday, a Twitter user named RickyLee, who has about 5,600 followers, posted the 16-second video and captioned it, “The Brainwashing of America is almost complete.” It quickly went viral and at the time of publication had been viewed over 3 million times.

The video shows a young boy on a scooter and a woman on a bike — presumably his mother — but when the boy comes across an American flag flying on a lawn at the end of the laneway, he grabs it. He then stops and pulls it out of the lawn. The woman on the bike stops and watches him do it but doesn’t intervene. She says something to him but the video has no audio. The boy throws the flag on the lawn, looks up at the house and then the pair continue on their way.

The video was picked up and shared by Marie Oakes of the Westphalian Times and was shared widely. She wrote, “Children are being raised to desecrate the flag.”

The video sparked outrage among conservatives on Twitter.

There was also a tremendous amount of support by people who think that the United States isn’t all that great and that the flag — the symbol of the country — is “just a piece of cloth.”

What are the chances these people would say that it was ok to pull up the flag and toss it on the ground if it was the rainbow flag?

Others were skeptical that the video was real because of the placement of the camera.

What do you think? Is it a video that shows the brainwashing of American children or was it staged?
