Default Another great move by our great president!

President moves to make flag-burning illegal. https://www.foxnews.com/politics/tru...g-a-no-brainer

Personally, I figured the SCOTUS was way off base, when they called flag burning "freedom of speech".

There is oral speech, written speech, even photo and video speech..but burning a physical object out in the street is clearly NOT a form of speech!

Burning a flag is a very physical action..just as much as punching someone in the nose.

Funny, isn't it..how the courts have not defended cross burning as free speech..Frankly , I am not in favor of the message behind either very physical action!

Obviously, the president can see the erratic, conflicted thinking also.

Never could figure out why those rioters who burn flags were not at least charged with littering, or starting unauthorized fires in the street.

Those cities where they were not charged with such acts, I wrote off as rad left.

By these city’s own rules isn’t this inciting violence or even hate speech??? Apparently only if these ordnance’s or laws work in favor of degrading America...

What about when that mob in San Francisco hung and caught on fire a dummy image of Trump wrapped in a flag? Why didn't the Secret Service get involved in that? They went after that liberal comedian
lady who was showing off a severed dummy head of the President.

Any veteran should be allowed to punch a flag burner if he/she desires.
And any other reason aside, the burner should be charged with vandalism for starting a fire on public property.
I would burn the burners.

It's the first stages of anarchy.

That's where this country is headed, and flag burning has slowly morphed from protesting the Vietnam war, to open defiance of civil law.

We live in a "spoiled society" of "gimmiedats" whom have never been hungry, and their bad personal decisions, are covered by government programs that keep them fed, and housed.
And they show their lack of appreciation with protest, and defiance.
Culturally, and morally, America is in decline.
