Someone is placing anti-Trump flags in dog poop piles in Florida

In an edgy — albeit messy — political statement, flags with a communique for Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump are popping up in piles of dog poop throughout Delray Beach, Florida.

The little blue flags were spotted in at least four locations by Delray Beach resident Dodd Loomis, who snapped photos of the flags fixed upright in animal feces.

The flags each read: “Trump. Make America Hate Again” — a play on the Republican nominee’s campaign slogan, “Make America Great Again.”

The flags also display a symbol that resembles the Swastika, the infamous emblem of the Nazi party.

They were spotted at Federal Highway at Northeast 1st Street; the Esplanade Plaza on Northeast 2nd Street; on Ocean Boulevard near George Bush Boulevard; and Delray Beach Memorial Gardens Municipal Cemetery, on Southwest 8th Avenue at Southwest 10th Street, said Loomis, who saw the flags while jogging in the past two weeks.

“To me, the commentary is clear,” Loomis said. “I think whatever this person’s trying to say, it’s a clever way of doing it.”

On Tuesday, a reporter spotted a flag on Southeast 6th Avenue at Northeast 4th Street.

The city’s Code Enforcement department could not be reached for comment by publication time.

Placing anti-Trump campaign material in animal waste isn’t unique to Delray.

A recent video and website launched by a group that calls itself "(Expletive) for Trump" have been viewed millions of times. In the video, which has been circulating on Facebook since at least April, people are seen placing small Trump flags in dog poop before recording reactions of locals passing by.

The movement's website even sells Trump flags for $2 a piece, although they aren't the same flags spotted throughout Delray Beach.
