Progressives like "All American NYC" should get that through their thick skull.
Flag law states you can't burn an American flag.

You know what that means, right?

Either act will inflame people. One of them put our people overseas in more danger and cost the lives of 20 people at least.

Not exactly a fair comparison, regardless of the law.

No one "backs the flag being burned." If you cannot distinguish between upholding the right and agreeing with the content of the speech, then that's your problem. Your ignorance doesn't constitute promotion of flag burning by your opponents.

It's transparent what you were trying to do.
