Ask the conservative poster who started it. They appear to care a great deal; feeling victimized and all.

Ummm...OK. I think we agree on that. I have never and will never see the flag that way. I get choked up at the sight of a USMC color guard striking the colors at sundown and "go back where you came from" is nowhere near that.

Here is the argument.

You don't support our immigration laws, leave the country.

You don't support our abortion laws, vote for me.

Disagreeing with what our country does is not hate for your country. I absolutely hate the way we kill tens of thousands of innocent men, women and children and I have been told to move if I don't like it.

Why is it that as an American I can't simply stay and try and change what I do not like?

I don't see it that way either. Trump seems to. Now the question is why.

I haven't seen anything that has me thinking that is how Trump sees the flag. But as an aside to that I just read a really good quote about the flag.


"if you burn an American Flag and say "It's just a flag"..Try saying that to Parents who received one folded up instead of their child coming Home."


That sums it up for me.

And even more unsurprisingly, they are going after a straight white male for wearing a t-shirt of the Gadsden flag. Chris Pratt, have fun dealing with your Hollyweird pals with this one.

What will the PC thought control police look to ban next by calling racist and white supremacist?
Quit playing the victim. There are 320 million people in US, so someone will always call something one thing or another. There is no point in pretending that voice is shared by a larger group of people.

This one I can agree with. It's typically only conservative, racist white guys who fly it from my personal experience. It goes hand-in-hand with the Confederate battle flag. However, nobody is stopping them from flying it. Fly the flag you want to fly.
