Occupy protest rekindles debate about flag-burning

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) – Many in the crowd outside Oakland City Hall shouted “Burn it! Burn it!” as masked protesters readied to set fire to an American flag. That’s when a woman emerged from the scrum, screaming for them to stop, that it would hurt the cause.

Of course one of Barack Hussein Obama’s mentors, Bill Ayers, sees nothing wrong with the desecration of the American flag.

I’m sure we have all seen this video, the one that illustrates the views of Michelle Obama and her respect for the American flag.

But desecrating the American Flag is no big deal, right? These people seem to think it’s OK.

“Symbolic expression” is a phrase often used to describe expression that is mixed with elements of conduct. The Supreme Court has made clear in a series of cases that symbolic expression (or expressive conduct) may be protected by the First Amendment. Several of these cases have been highly controversial–perhaps none more so than Texas vs Johnson (1990) reversing the conviction of a man who expressed his strong displeasure with U. S. policy by burning an American flag. SOURCE

So, is it any wonder Occupy burns the American flag? Their supporters have no respect for the flag. Occupy has no respect for America or our laws. It makes a lot of sense once you tie all the players together.

    I have no problem with people burning the American Flag – as long as they wrap themselves in it first.

    No, really – problem solved. Symbol desecrated, desecrator removed from the gene pool.

    What do you expect from people whose mothers charged by the sexual act and not the hour.

    I agree they can burn it all they want, but it has to be tightly wrapped around them.

  3. Dick Robie says:

    We need an Amendment to the Constitution making flag desecration a Category I Felony. Of course, Congress cant even pass a budget, so why would one believe they could accomplish this. The Amendment to the Constitution need only be one sentence.

    No condemnation from the White House either.
