Any American Citizen , and those who are Not , Publicly Burn the Flag of the United States in the Streets Deserve to get their Ass Beat . Just My Opinion .
Our military fights for our way of life, which includes the right to burn the flag. One might find it disrespectful or impolite, but it is a right we have. That is why we do not 'beat the asses' of people who do this.

I'm not familiar with the laws in the USA, but in Europe, burning other country flag is forbidden, which means you will go to jail. Now, I've never seen in my life a person burning a flag of his own country, but it is not allowed, at least here in Europe. If that's the democracy that you love so much, I'll pass.
That's not civil disobedience, that's disgusting.

I hate to think of how people are going to behave if Trump loses.
Or if he wins......
I don't remember ever seeing the states this polarized.

Our Supreme Court has ruled flag burning to be free speech. It's just a piece of cloth and a Chinese made one at that.
Go burn a flag in front of the VFW.
The Supreme Court won't be there to protect your right to free speech.
A soldier probably will. He has done it before even for people who hate him for what he is.
