I think if you would open your eyes and read what I said it was a generational thing that occurred during the 70's I didn't say that YOU soedible or your specific family did that, it was a generalization of events that became history....

I was there, as I was in Nam, and yes I do have the nerve to say so..........

Speaking of talking out their ass with out reading what was written.....hello pot

I think you guys are being a bit hard on Convert 54. The way I read his post to mean, is that it doesn't matter what country you're from, what color you are, or what ethnicity you claim ... disrespecting the Flag is still disrespecting the Flag regardless of who's doing it.

THAT is what it means to be American! YOU stand up for your Country, and your Flag, no matter who it is that is disrespecting it.

He didn't say anywhere in any of his posts, that he was "OK" with anyone doing that to our Flag. He seems every bit as disgusted about this, as the rest of us.

Our flag represents our country. If you don't like it, there are other options. I'm going to buy a bumper sticker that says, "Do an Illegal a favor. Buy him a one-way bus ticket". "Him" is gender-neutral.

So at their NEXT protest they won't mind at all if we take a Mexican flag and write GO HOME ILLEGALS on it right?

If these two guys from Canada can be charged with desecrating the US flag, why can't those illegal mexicans be charged with it too? Law enforcement was present, they saw the flag that those illegal mexicans had and that they had spray painted all over it. Why were there no arrests?

Great idea. But we would probably be arrested for "hate crimes."

Flag desecration is the pinnacle of disrespect, whether done by a citizen or a foreigner. As much as I despise seeing citizens desecrating our flag, it’s even more infuriating to see foreigners displaying such insolence; particularly, foreign interlopers. Our country has been extremely generous to illegal aliens. What other country would offer them “free” organ transplants, kidney dialysis, food, shelter, and a K-12 education for their children? The least they can do is feign gratitude and respect. Likewise, I can say whatever I choose about my mother, but I’ll be damned if I‘ll allow anyone else.
