So, I'm a veteran and here are my thoughts on this- the picture is beautiful. It violates, by the letter of the law, the US flag code. The first
amendment trumps code 110%. I'm cool with that.
I'm absolutely fine with the idea of fighting and dying for the inalienable rights enshrined in our founding documents. I revere the flag and what it
should stand for, but I'd never want anyone punished for what they do to a piece of cloth. Symbolism is important, and I understand that, but the
right of every human being to express themselves in art or any human endeavour using their voice or the media of the day is a right granted by the
Creator, I've always found that worth dying for.
Anyone bitching about this really needs to look in their heart, and ask themselves why it offends them. The ideals of this flag are ageless and
worthy. Wrapping a baby in it presents no threat. Burning or pissing on it without reprise proves its resiliency and agelessness.
One will cover my coffin. Why should I take offense to one holding a newborn.
