I find the burning of the American flag to be repulsive.I find it to be provocative for the sake of being provocative. I find that is usually done by people who do not fully understand the implications of what the foundations of our country means. I find it to be disrespectful for those who would stand for the cause of liberty and freedom.
It is disrespectful for those who would put on the uniform and stand a post for the very freedom to burn the flag.
Those who would burn the flag are frequently looking to start a fight.
I find what is commonly known as the Confederate flag to be repulsive. I find it to be provocative for the sake of being provocative. I find that those who fly it are people who do not fully understand the implications of the symbolism of that flag. It represents sedition and it represents the bloodiest time in our country’s history. I find it disrespectful for those who had relatives who lived through slavery.
I find the fact that the resurgence of the flying of that flag during the civil rights movements as a slap in the face to those who would stand for equality.
I find that it is a symbol that stands against the cause of liberty of freedom. Having lived in the south my entire life, I find the defense of the flag as a representation of “southern heritage” to be intellectually weak. Those who would fly that flag are frequently looking to start a fight.
If we are going to ban the burning of the American Flag under the threat of stripping one of their citizenship, then it stands to reason that we also strip the citizenship of those who would fly the Confederate Flag, as it is an actual symbol of those who had a desire to renounce their citizenship to the United States, and just as provocative and repulsive as someone who would burn the American flag.
Or, Donald, we can just keep things the way they are.
