Is America conquered when the American flag is "offensive"? This is a good one. I don't know how anyone could refute any of the points made here:

American Thinker: Is America Conquered When the American Flag Is 'Offensive'?
Not quite yet. Most people believe the illegals who most object to the USA flag are quite the hypocrits. They claim they love Mexico but who puts up the most ridiculous claims against their country when they might be returned to it?

No one is going to feel at all bad when those strutting around with Mexican flags are deported, even if they've also got US citizenship. It's kind of the "love it or leave it" in reverse. Those pretending to love Mexico so much shouldn't find the idea of spending some time there so horrendous, and they really need to stop claiming everyone is starving to death there or that it's worse than a Nazi concentration camp -- while they strut around waving it's flag.

We ourselves (ie: American Citizens) have made the flag irrelevant by the way we use it anyway. I even saw flag-themed TP once. Try to spin THAT into something patriotic.

My guess is that this tp was designed to allow a group of like minded thinkers to wipe their butts with Ole Glory in order to show their disdain for America in a symbolic manner...again, freedom of speech...

besides, I feel that reactions to the flag are based upon just what it represents to people...on both sides of the aisle.
I fly it daily and am proud of what it stands for....Others see it differently.

If that is the case then those "who see it differently" need to move to another country.

I agree....but that is unlikely to happen, because these dimbulbs realize that their little tantrums would not be allowed in the likes of china,venezuela, cuba,or, probably even mexico. Perhaps Norway or Sweden will provide some refuge....If they can afford the cost of living...Or one of the EU countries...If they hurry they can get there bffore the collapse of Greece, and chip in to help...

We need a kick ass President in office. Time to clean house.

Thanks for this article chicagonut, and for being a TRUE American patriot, it's "catching".

That's what I am wondering. Shall we hold our breaths for a rational answer?
