Well, it is "free speech", but it is pretty loathsome free speech. It is an insulting bit of free speech that is a vulgar slap in the face to veterans who have served under the flag and who might have had friends that died under that flag. It is an insult to every man, woman and child who reveres the flag and the Republic for which it stands.
If you want to engage in a type of vulgar free speech, you should be aware that someone might really not stand for it, and act accordingly.
Who is filming him? How did this happen?
He'll be looking for a new job next. But, it may be one of the memories of a lifetime, and was the right thing to do. His gut wouldn't have allowed anything else.
Don't talk to these people; don't answer questions. Just take the flags. The courage to enter that crowd was outstanding!
It's allowable to burn the flag in public as a protest? Bullshit! That's between the law and the citizen, but as a Veteran - American, I have my boundaries, too.
Wait a minute. That is a great idea. We should start carrying fire extinguishers around to put out the burning flags and defend ourselves from punks. I think this guy is on to something here.
I think it should be made law to be a felony to burn the flag and be jailed and fined. If they do not like this country and do not want to join together to help fix it then get out and find out what happens when you burn other country's flags openly. Hats off to you Matt Uhrin you deserve a medal!
The pussy in the cowboy hat with the kerchief over his face hollering "I'll fight fascism here!" That was real gansta!
If you show your nation's flag, you are a Fascist. Just watch. This will become their battle cry. Libs see Fascism as a derogatory term, and it is based on their feelings. It has no underpinning in political reality and they. just. don't. care.
Fascism was Mussolini's political movement where the state becomes the ultimate expression of the political order. That's it, in a nutshell. Naziism rose out of the Fascist political format, and was state-eminence. The belligerents in World War I (1914-1918) were all nationalists. Did that make every WW I participant a Nazi? No. Obama was racially focused; it was his lens through which to view the world. Nazi? Similar, but other viewpoints include racism as a driver. What did Obama love in politics? The farking state. Got a problem? Yes. The state will solve it, and you can sit in the corner and watch. Don't got a problem? Fine. We'll make one up for you (environment). The state will solve that, too.
Hmmmm. Whose the Nazi, now?
Ask yourself: under Obama, were you afraid to have an opinion about something? That's called intimidation. The calling card of the Brown Shirts (Nazis).
If I were a young conservative activist, I'd stage some flag rescues as street theater. Have some fake newsies there to expose that nerve, too.
Ah, rather than putting out the fire, toss a few ol' korans on it. You know, free speech.
Well, the fed-ex guy exercised his right to free speech as well. Good for him!
The courts declared flag burning legal. I think people should declare judge burning legal.
