Strawman much? Criminal activity and free speech are two different things.
Sad that the crowd can't see their own shallow patriotism and abject nationalism and sad that this kid is such an attention whore.
To your next point, no one is blaming social media. I'm simply pointing out that it's another weapon in the arsenal and we should all be alert to both it's positive and negative uses.
Burning of the American flag is a civil liberty just as prominent as your right to free speech. By not allowing an individual the right to exercise that right means you only agree with liberty when it is what you like.
America doesn't work that way. You don't have to like flag burning and neither do I but you must respect an individuals right before you see yours stripped away also.

So anyone who defends the flag is guilty of "shallow patriotism and abject nationalism"? Many millions of Americans would strongly disagree with you!
It seems like you dislike any expression of patriotism that doesn't fit into your own narrow view of things.
