Gearing up for yet another round of endless wars I'd say (and it is already in effect).
Patriotism is pretty much synonymous with the military and war so the more patriotic the people are the more open they are to supporting war no matter how unjust or false the cause is, patriots just want to "kick ass".

We bring to the attention of Global Research readers this important article on the links of the Bush family to Nazi Germany, first published in the The New Hampshire Gazette in November 2003. While this relationship has been amply documented by official US government records (see the book by Webster Tarpley), the authors point in their article to newly discovered US government documents, which suggest that the relationship continued until 1951, nine years after the assets of Prescott Bush were seized under the Trading with the Enemy Act of 1942. After the seizures in late 1942 of five U.S. enterprises he managed on behalf of Nazi industrialist Fritz Thyssen, Prescott Bush, the grandfather of President George W. Bush, failed to divest himself of more than a dozen “enemy national” relationships that continued until as late as 1951, newly-discovered U.S. government documents reveal. Furthermore, the records show that Bush and his colleagues routinely attempted to conceal their activities from government investigators. Bush’s partners in the secret web of Thyssen-controlled ventures included former New York Governor W. Averell Harriman and his younger brother, E. Roland Harriman. Their quarter-century of Nazi financial transactions, from 1924-1951, were conducted by the New York private banking firm, Brown Brothers Harriman. The White House did not return phone calls seeking comment. Although the additional seizures under the Trading with the Enemy Act did not take place until after the war, documents from The National Archives and Library of Congress confirm that Bush and his partners continued their Nazi dealings unabated.
Yes, you know those things now because in the years since the war those things have come out. But those young men who died did so in service of their country. They believed what they had been told by their government.

What if someone burning an American flag isn't doing it in protest of any of those things you just listed (implied)? What if they're burning it in protest of the way our current political system operates? Who gets to choose what a piece of fabric represents?
If they Really Felt that way , then Burning Down a Congressman's or Senator's House would make a much more Productive Protest , No ?

Nobody has ever burned a flag in front of me.
I kind of wish someone would try.
You have the absolute right to burn flag.
If you can get it out of the orifice I shoved it in.
in the years after the war?
