Leftists do make exceptions all the time and don't care one bit about the parts of the Constitution that get in their way. See: The Second Amendment.

But what if I told you there was a part of our Constitution, which you claim to love so much, that allows us to amend and modify it?? It's called Article V. With that, we can make things constitutional that are otherwise unconstitutional. Like magic!

Like.... wait for it... a flag desecration amendment:

b-but Trump didn't say that.

He didn't not say it. He also didn't say he would pass a law to ban flag burning either. You made that part up in your head.

I wake up, what do I see? The internet freaking out because Donald Trump (our new president) says that burning the flag should be illegal! Who are these people?? OF COURSE IT SHOULD BE ILLEGAL! Burning the flag is the same as burning a veteran! You disgrace the flag, you disgrace our founding fathers, and every great patriot our country has seen. You are AN ENEMY OF THE STATE if you are a flag burner. And the only problem I see with what trump said is that he doesnt go far enough. It shouldn't just be illegal for an American to burn the flag, it should be illegal EVERYWHERE. Nobody in the world should be able to burn an American flag! There, I said it! If you burn a flag in Guatamala, Bangkok, Munich or Tallahassee, I don't care! America will lock you up! And then we'll see if maybe you should be burned as well! This is just the first step of making America's world great again. FLAG BURNERS MUST BE PUNISHED. It is simply not free speech!!!!!!

I'm a 3 tour OIF Veteran. The act of burning a flag is treasonous. Don't fucking do it. You can only burn a venerated symbol so long before someone comes along and plants your balls in the ground to grow another bitch.

Being so easily triggered

Book burning? That's bad because it destroys knowledge. Torching a neighborhood? That's someone's livelihood.

A flag?

It's a symbol. If someone can legally say "I hate America/the President/the government"... well, that's all that you are saying.

It's a hateful act, but not an illegal one. It's basically IRL shitposting to get a rise out of idiots like you.

Then it needs to be done in a safe way. You need to get the fire marshal to cordon off a flag burning zone so the burning can be done safely.

There is no possible way to safely burn a flag during a protest when there are lots of people around.

Really this is just a public safety issue.

Gabriel Johnson

it's an interesting paradox
by burning the flag you are disavowing everything it represents
including the protection it grants you to express yourself by burning it

so they will destroy something but then invoke it as protection

but liberals are nothing if not hypocritical

not if it's on their property, and not if you're specifically targeting, stalking, or following one family or person- that's targeted harassment

I think flag burning should be covered under freedom of speech. But remember that freedom of speech is not freedom from rebuttal or consequences. A flag can mean a lot to some people. And burning it can be the ultimate insult, legally allowing them to rebut with a punch to your smug leftist face and stomping your head when you're trying to pick up your teeth.

Dominic Carter
Dominic Carter

The flag doesn't belong to you - it's not your property. It's a symbol of this nation.
It represents everything this country stands for. Millions of people have sacrificed their lives for it. By disrespecting the flag, you are disrespecting this nation and all of those that have fought and died for it. If you hate America so much that you feel obliged to burn the flag, you should revoke your citizenship and find a new country to live in.

Burning the American Flag wasn't protected by the First Amendment until some (((judges))) decided it was in 1989.

People need to stop acting like the Founding Fathers were some kind of left-leaning band of anarchists. They were far to the right of even the Nazis, creating a country where only rich white men could vote, the Supreme Court had no power to review laws, and the Senate wasn't even an elected office.
