I believe there was a thread on here when protestors (against Bush?) burnt a US flag. They were TREASONOUS and TRAITORS, according to many on here.
Pictures of Iraqis burning US flags caused huge uproar by many on here also.

The radio station had an impromtu protest.

I'm glad to see Americans taking that cue and
burning the flag of the institution that they
hate (and hate with good reason).

UN "peacekeepers" never keep any peace. They are just in the conflict areas for the cameras. When have the blue hats killed bad guy? Burn all of the UN flags in protest of that corrupt bloodmoney loving Jew hating organization.

Fred, Freedom of Speech isn’t the same thing as the illusionary Freedom of Expression. Freedom of speech means you can tell the president he has no clothes on without fear of repercussion from the government. That is not the same thing as burning the standard for the entire nation, no matter who is in the Oval Office at the time.
You see, to me, if I were to be confronted with some piece of dirt burning my flag, I’d take his “expression” in a way different from the way he intended, I’m sure. I’d take it that he was trying to tell me to punch him square in the mouth.
Fitz, you claim that something such as this causes the rest of the world to hate us. Here’s a news report for you, friend, the rest of the world HATES US ANYWAY!
And furthermore, I do not care.
I couldn’t care less what these maggots think about us. As a matter of fact, the burning of the U.N. flag expresses my feelings perfectly, get it the heck off our land and get us out of it. We spend the most in that stupid organization only to have po-dunk countries and “friends” try and rip us off at every turn.
I can see how logic and reason would not fit into their outlook. There. There’s an arrogant thing for me to say. That’ll give them a good and just reason to hate me, at least.
“Trailerpark activism......sick society..
emigrate to Europe...US will implode within 20 years”
No, we’re the arrogant ones. Sweden? Someone from SWEDEN trying to talk condescendingly to us? I laugh in your general and foolish direction.
Look, children, I gotta go get ready for work. I stumbled upon this too late. Hopefully I’ll have time to come back to this before I’m off to work, but stop and reflect a moment on my pearls of wisdom while I’m gone.
Not to forget that they want the UN also to pay for a thing they did not supported and help rebuilding a country that was invaded while UN said no. But if it gets too messy and expensive suddenly UN is good again...

Unfortunately it is things like this that makle the world hate america.
Has there been a reaction in america to this.
Seems the goverment of america wont listen to the UN when it says no to iraq but still wants to use it to ban stem cells. But hypocritical i think.
Also america is part of the united nations, you feeling disgust at something your part on and instead of trying to change it or leave it you burn the flag doesent seem that mature.

I think the UN is corrupt.
I think if other countries think the UN is doing anything whatsoever other than stealing money then they should feel free to continue to participate...I just would prefer my country not.
