Anyone who votes in favor of something like that will find out what “blowback” actually is. Thanks Rabin.
So we can stop them from allowing folks to burn our flag by rioting?
I’m starting to think a certain someone who was a decorated gulf war veteran but no longer alive might have been onto something about the encroachment of the federal government.
If burning the Muslim holy book is against the first amendment, then the same law should apply to all religious texts and books.
Can hardly wait for Anne Barnhardt to add Dingie Harry and Stevie Blunder to her “Jackass” list.
Wish to burn the American flag?
Sure, go ahead. Here let me wrap it around you first. I’ll add some gasoline to help it burn better.

Terry Jones set a new standard for idiotic self aggrandizing street theater, but it wasn’t illegal...nor should it ever be.
The Flag stands for Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness. All Humans should stand for that. Based on that then it burning should ignite hatred and violence. Instead a 7th century baby raper claims he is a God and his word is that of God and heads get cut off... F these people.... We need 1.2 billion less....
The idiots are the ones who chose to pay attention to him.
TCM— “Terry Jones set a new standard for idiotic self aggrandizing street theater”
Ifin you truly believe that, your knowledge and experience in the area of things proclaimed aggrandizing theater’’ is a bit mal nourished. Terry is but an American with freedom.
When soldiers are to combat, this is the freedom most protects. Not very PC thank god.
I've lived too long. If it weren't for my worries for my kids and grandkids, I'd go back up to the north woods and dig in for the rest of my days - no TV, no newspapers, no news on my ‘puter.
I'm halfway there. I quit my satellite TV over 2 yrs ago - only have a few stations I get with an ancient, broken down antenna...but I forget to turn the TV on but maybe once or twice a month.
My house is snuggled down in the forest. I look out and see only woods, sky and natures creatures. But I'm still too close to what is euphemiously called ‘civilization.’
Not much civil about civilization these days. Tired of it all.
You'll notice he wasn't brave enough to do it out in the open - but in a dingy alley. The place suits him. Wonder who the photographer was? Maybe his buddy 'in the neighborhood."
The only way I will tolerate someone burning our flag in my presence is if they are wrapped in it with sufficient fuels to guarantee instant combustion. Now I will volunteer usage of a Pulaski to assist extinguishing the fire but only when it has reached full temperature.
And to believe this guy was a convicted terrorist and got away with it!
And he trained/advises the TIC even now ("T" = Traitor) truly frighting. He's seeing the fulfillment of his lifelong dream - the destruction of America.
How do minds become so evil and twisted?
