Louisiana State University to Allow American Flag Burning Noon Tomorrow
http://www.lsureveille.com/student-to-burn-american-flag-in-peaceful-protest-tomorrow-at-noon-1.2561875 ^

Posted on 05/10/2011 6:50:56 PM PDT by TigerClaws

Benjamin Haas, communication studies graduate student, will burn an American flag tomorrow at noon on the Parade Ground as part of a peaceful protest, according to Cody Wells, Student Government president.

Wells said Haas is exercising his First Amendment right to burn the flag. The burning comes nearly a week after Isaac Eslava was taken into custody after cutting down and burning the American flag flying over the War Memorial and stealing the University flag.

___ Sadly, a student has filed a peaceful protest with the university to burn an American flag at noon tomorrow. Please join our Student Body Leaders and the LSU Student Body on the parade grounds tomorrow at 1 p.m. to say the Pledge of Allegiance and sing the National Anthem. Thanks guys.

--

Per David Jones, who is on the student government.

How is it legal to cause a fire in a public place?

Some LSU students have organized a counter protest:

(I’m not a part of the above group. But must admit I laughed!)

We need a sniper to attend this flag burning. I’ll be glad to pay his travel expenses.

A bunch of people should show up with their trusty Queerans to burn along with them.

Seriously.

Apparently the hippies are burning the flag in solidarity with the guy who stole and burned a flag last week:

http://www.nbc33tv.com/news/crimetracker/suspect-caught-in-lsu-flag-burning

He burned this flag the night it was announced UBL was dead. The flag burner is a self-proclaimed Communist. Hippie stoner type.

Koran burn = national press.

American flag burner = local news only.

“Louisiana State University to Allow American Flag Burning Noon Tomorrow” but burning (or threatening to burn a Koran or creating a cartoon of the guy who made up Islam) is worthy of rioting, threatening to bomb Americans or killing others is totally understandable!

Given the legal precedent, I'm sure no one would object if someone stole his flag before he could burn it.

I wish I was close enough to attend. I’d throw some Korans and a picture of Mohammed on it to make a bigger fire. I’m sure a lot of other people can think of things they would like to contribute to the blaze.

There was a Louisiana law passed years ago. Not sure if it’s still on the books.

The law was: Illegal to punch a flag burner BUT the fine is limited to $20.

I so wish some brave soul would meet him with a sealed jar containing a Koran immersed in urine.

Let’s see how serious the anti-American leftists are about defending “free speech” then.

You’d think students would have something more constructive to do with their time like studying to become self-sufficient or even do something that contributes to the well-being of others instead of engaging in such a futile, wrongheaded, infantile exercise.

Some folks are contacting the State Fire Marshall to try to stop it. Illegal to burn within the city limits.
