You care enough to make this post and post your opinion on flag desecration.


That's obvious. What does that have to do with what I said?

Is it not in the code that burning the flag is considered a dignified way of disposal?

I'm not saying the protesters was dignified in burning the flag.


Well these are the steps:

1. The flag should be folded in its customary manner.

2. It is important that the fire be fairly large and of sufficient intensity to ensure complete burning of the flag.

3. Place the flag on the fire.

4. The individual(s) can come to attention, salute the flag, recite the Pledge of Allegiance and have a brief period of silent reflection.

5. After the flag is completely consumed, the fire should then be safely extinguished and the ashes buried.

6. Please make sure you are conforming to local/state fire codes or ordinances.

As you can see, they failed from step 1. Keep trolling though....

So I was correct. Burning a flag is in the code.

That's all I was saying.

Good Christ you really do go out of your way to be ignorant sometimes, don't you?


Was I factually incorrect?




Factually incorrect? No.

Intentionally ambiguous? Yes. You knew good and well, as I said, what the initial reference to flag burning was about. No amount of spin is going to make that any less obvious.

Guess the person that wrote this article never heard of something called free speech. These articles these people write to trigger the knuckledraggers just shows how desperate they getting. It's funny seeing the hypocrisy of the Trump supporters they whine and cry about Hollywood and yet they elected Hollywood into office.

What spin? I did not put any spin on anything I posted.

I think you are trying to make a bigger deal out of this than needs be.

No, he'd be staring in stark disbelief screaming at us saying something to the effect of..."It was a damned work of fiction, not a how-to manual."

Legitimate criticism is "whining"; illegitimate criticism is "protesting". Orwell would be proud.


right...and Orwell would want to see what dictionary your using for your definition of "protesting"...I think he had a keen grasp on language

All I know is what comes out of their mouth is nothing but incessant whining and progressive drivel…


Isn't that exactly what you are doing? Whining and spitting out drivel over a damn flag and a few libs?

Who cares which celebs are on the cover and who cares that you and others go complete snowflake over the flag touching the ground?




A55CLOWN! people died for what that flag represents

more specifically, your ability to open your mouth and say things I disagree with.

He would know what scare quotes are and their function. You don't. I was ridiculing someone else's use of the term.

Emphasis mine.

you made a statement, without a reference...who was this "someone" you were ridiculing, and the context of what that "someone" wrote?

All you fascists bound to lose

-Woody Guthrie


More crying from the biggest group of candy asses in the entire universe. I meant the alt right, not the celebrities. If they were pro Trump though...then it'd be all flag waving and American hero talk. The alt right is the most fcked up, uneducated, confused, and deluded group of people in U.S. history. They make tea partiers look like geniuses.

No need to feel bad. The media had a hay-day with them examples! That was my point, they didn't have to make stuff up.

It also says in the code that the flag should never be used as apparel. I wonder where the outrage was for this guy.




It is perfectly acceptable for MAGAs.
