Because of course, one guy who has made this his life's goal represents an entire group of people. Or so the arguments often times go. Arguments based in nothing more than a hatred for others. (this goes for both sides)

Who was it that said that our country will be destroyed not by foreign adversaries but rather by enemies within? I'm seeing it now.
Sorry, but I don`t care about any countries or their silly flags.

'Burn that rag!' Activists to desecrate the flag at Trump July Fourth rallyby Steven NelsonJune 24, 2019 04:38 PMSparks will fly in Washington as activists torch an American flag to protest President Trump's July Fourth "Salute to America," which Trump claims will be one of the largest events in city history.
Longtime flag-burning activist Gregory "Joey" Johnson of the Revolutionary Communist Party told the Washington Examiner, "I'm going to be there in D.C.," and "that rag of empire and oppression is going to burn."Johnson is well known for winning a 1989 Supreme Court case that invalidated state laws against flag burning. He declined to share the time and location of next week's protest or say how many other activists will participate.Trump will appear at the Lincoln Memorial at 6:30 p.m., ahead of fireworks at dusk.
It is was going to be a 4th of July celebration. Trump cancelled that to have a rally.

And that is all that this is now. A Trump campaign rally, where he'll get the crowd chanting and brag about imaginary things, and sell hats. Nobody owes him any respect for ruining the holiday for others.

It will be a Trump rally, and I'm still willing to bet that Trump will pervert the celebration that he has already ruined with those who disagree.

I think its safe to say without much exaggeration that this is going to be the largest fireworks show D.C. has ever seen, said [National Park Service spokesman] Mike Litterst.

Litterst says the show will be longer than ever at 35 minutes because of donations from two fireworks companies worth nearly a million dollars.

Many of these idiots probably don't know that the person who burnt the flag can be found guilty of a misdemeanor for starting a fire without a permit.

lol

In all honesty and fairness, I don't think either party really has much of a high opinion of those American flag burners. Just sayin'

I have a lot of liberal friends in real life, nobody likes the people who choose to burn American flag.

Let's See.

Democrats want to **** on the American Flag

Then they blame the rest of America for not voting for them.

Because it is not burning the material that matters- it is the destruction of a symbol, which has greater ramifications.


Flag burning is legal, however that does not make it acceptable behavior for those who value the rights and priveledge of being a US citizen. Burning the flag shows contempt for what the nation stands for, thus symbolically performing the destruction of the nation.


Libs are essentially "fifth columnists" in America, seeking the destroy what distinguishes America from despotic, totalitarian nations. Ironically, those tyrannical governments tend to be the ones liberals love. If politics have a characture of evil, it is certainly a liberal.


Libs have no problem burning an American flag, but would go ballistic if someone burnt a gay pride flag or condemned them for displaying Mexican, Palestinian, North Vietnamese, or the USSR flag.




Nope, could care less. Sorry to burst your bubble there.
