Burning the flag is what darkest, meanest, nastiest people in world do. Same who kill innocent lives. They should be sent to the middle east and north korea and burn flags with them.


That is probably the most un-American thing Ive ever read. Thanks for showing me why I left ATS in the first place.


If you left then how are you here?
Just wondering.

Just remember folks.

It was the NAZI's that went around burning 'idea's/books they didn't like.

And for the record US citizenship has never been a right.

Just ask those American 'jihadists' over in the middle east getting droned.

Oh well never mind we can't.

Again this is a moot point.

We are now 55 pages in and there is a simple answer -

Flag burning - Is protected as free speech by 2 US Supreme Court Rulings.

Loss of Citizenship - A ruling by the US Supreme Court says a citizen (natural born) cannot have their citizenship taken away by the government. The only way for a natural born citizen to lose their citizenship is if they do it on their own.

Any questions?

Flag Burning
* - Texas vs. Johnson (1989)
* - US vs. Eichman (1990)

Citizenship
* - Afroyim vs. Rusk (1967)
* - Cyrus Vance (Secretary of State of the United States) vs. Laurence J. Terrazas

Is Trump wrong in this area? Yup, just as wrong as Obama when he said he visited all 57 states. If you want a leader who can walk on water your setting yourself up for failure regardless of party affiliation.

As the great George Carlin once said:

"I do not get all choked up by Patriotic commercials or little ribbons on mailboxes or American Flags because these are all just symbols and I leave symbols to the simple minded
