burned. It's a disgrace to everyone who has fought and died defending that flag and the nation it represents.
Obviously this moron has the legal right to do it. But that doesn't make it "right". Just as it isn't right for me to stand in front of a mosque
and rub the Koran against my butt. Sure, I may have the legal right to do it, but it's not a morally appropriate thing to do. People worship that
book and I would not insult their beliefs by degrading their holy book.
he is a disgrace and I'm glad someone stood up to him. I found it ironic that he was burning the very same flag of the nation which allows him to
pull such stupid and offensive stunts.
I couldn't have said it better myself, hence the lengthy quote...
America needs to wake up and realize that we are under an invasion situation. All of this "Requonquista" movement is nothing but a blatant shout in
our faces that we will be shoved aside if we continue to sleep! Political correctness will be the death of us if we carry on trying to "play nice". Is
anyone else playing nice? NO!!
Freedom of speech, definitely a attribute to be treasured, it is something that makes America great. But does freedom of speech include the right to
"TREASON - This word imports a betraying, treachery, or breach of allegiance.
The Constitution of the United States, Art. III, defines treason against the United States to consist only in levying war against them, or in
adhering to their enemies, giving them aid or comfort. This offence is punished with death. By the same article of the Constitution, no person shall
be convicted of treason, unless on the testimony of two witnesses to the same overt act, or on confession in open court. "
Focus on above: breach of allegiance.
Citizen? Treason (See above)
Illegal? Immediate Deportation with penalty upon return
The flag may physically be a rectangular piece of cloth with symbols either printed or sewn upon it, but it stands for so much more. Imagine the
outrage if an Islamic fundamentalist urinated on a religious Cross in the streets of America. Would that wake people up? Would it?!? I would hope so,
whether that person bought it in a store or not.
