    Milwaukee police officers are respectful of the American flag because of the liberty it represents. Black Lives Matter protesters just want the freedom, and couldn't care less about the flag - or the country that affords it. Democratic State Sen. Lena Taylor posted several photos of protesters outside the Milwaukee Theatre where the Republican presidential debate was taking place last night, including one of a protester standing on an American flag and pointing at it.

    Friday was Quds Day, the day where Iranians gather in streets and chant their hatred towards the United States and Israel. The Free Beacon describes the scene in Iran: Hoards of Iranians could be seen in the streets in cities across the country. They waved signs advocating the destruction of Israel and America and also rallied in support of the Palestinians seizing Jerusalem. “Demonstrators chant[ed] slogans in condemnation of the Zionists’ crimes in the occupied Palestinian lands,” Iran’s state-controlled Fars News Agency reported. Chants of “Down with the U.S.” and “Down with Israel” could also be heard echoing through the...

    Surrounded by nearly 50 activists, Crystal Wilson steadied a small American flag in one hand, and a lighter in the other. "The American flag holds as much hatred, as much oppression, as much blood as the Confederate flag," said Wilson, 25. She sparked the lighter, guiding the small flame to the red, white and blue cloth. It caught fire, and burned away the flecks of fabric. Another activist raised two smaller flags to the fire, and a third raised a full-sized American flag to the conflagration. Together, the emblems of freedom withered into tiny black bits on the sidewalk. The...

    When They Showed Up, These Guys Were Waiting(strong language warning) Anti-police activists were set to burn the American flag at a New York City park Wednesday evening, but their plans seemingly changed when dozens of bikers and veterans came out to counter protest. Flocking to Brooklyn’s Fort Greene Park, individuals opposed to burning the U.S. flag waited for the “Disarm NYPD” group to arrive. While most urged for peace, several bikers threatened violence toward anyone who would burn the American flag. “We’re here to f*** up tiny liberal punks,” a biker who refused to identify himself told TheBlaze.

    FORT GREENE, Brooklyn — The Confederate flag controversy continued Monday. Republican Presidential hopeful Jeb Bush weighed in from the campaign trail on the heated debate. “The symbols are racist and if you’re trying to lean forward rather than live in the past, you want to eliminate the barriers that create disagreements,” Bush said. PIX11 has learned a new survey of South Carolina legislators shows there is enough support to remove the Confederate battle flag from their statehouse grounds if lawmakers vote on the issue. Over the weekend, activist Bree Newsome illegally scaled the pole bearing the Confederate flag in Columbia,...

    TEHRAN -- At least 10,000 Iranians protested outside the former U.S. Embassy in Tehran Monday, burning American flags and effigies of Barack Obama on the anniversary of the 1979 seizure of the building. Annual demonstrations take place at the site, marking the date on which activists stormed the embassy 34 years ago and took 52 staff hostage for 444 days -- an act that severed diplomatic ties with the U.S. for more than three decades. But this year’s demonstration was larger than usual, fueled by anger among Iranians at President Hassan Rouhani's recent moves to reopen dialogue with the West....

Joseph Corlett's lawsuit was dismissed by U.S. District Judge Patrick Duggan, who ruled in favor of Oakland University in suburban Detroit. When Corlett referred to his teacher as "'stacked' and graphically compared her to a sitcom character he fetishized in a writing assignment, he brought a pig into the parlor," Duggan said.

    British police allowed about a hundred jihadists chanting offensive slogans to march through central London Sunday and burn a US flag during the memorial events for the 9/11 massacres ten years ago. At the same time, a group organized by the nationalist English Defense League that gathered to lay wreaths at the U.S. Embassy in London was told to move away in order to avert a possible clash between the groups. Police used force against the EDL group. The jihadis chanted "USA – terror state!", "Burn, burn, USA!" and "Muslims rise up!" as a US flag was burned. One of...

A group of 100 Muslim radicals, including members of Muslims Against Crusades, shouted 'USA terrorists' and brandished anti-American placards.

    For Americans, the flag is one of the most sacred symbols of our government, representing freedom, democracy, and all of the things that we hold most dear about our country. Over the years, however, various laws designed to protect the U.S. flag have been invalidated by the courts. In a 1989 Supreme Court decision, Texas v. Johnson, the court struck down the 1968 federal Flag Protection Act, citing concerns about free speech. Congress quickly passed a new Flag Protection Act, but it too was struck down by the Supreme Court in a 1990 Supreme Court decision, U.S. v. Eichman. I...

    If anyone is interested. Look up the flag code. It used to be law, but is no longer enforceable. Burning the flag is NOT illegal in and of itself. Lighting a public fire without a permit is - in many places. Which frankly, should be applied everywhere. I can't burn a book in the street where I live,but they'd let me burn a flag. That's ridiculous. The flag code should be reinstated. You should be burning the flag, or symbol, that represents the branch of government you are having issue with. While having a public burning permit, of course. You...

  • Palestinians mark 1948 uprooting with rallies (by burning OUR flag)

    RAMALLAH, West Bank - Palestinians marked the 60th anniversary of their uprooting with rallies, sirens and black balloons Thursday — an annual ritual made even darker this year by crippling internal divisions and diminishing independence hopes. The memorial provided a stark contrast to Israel's all-out birthday bash, which included a high-profile visit by President Bush for the 60th independence day celebration. Bush's embrace of Israel at a time when the Palestinians were mourning was bound to further harm the tainted U.S. image in Palestinian areas and across the Arab world.

    KOSOVSKA MITROVICA, Kosovo — Up to 2,000 Serb protesters rallied against Kosovo's independence in the new nation's tense north today, and a few set fire to EU flags in what has become a daily challenge of the country's secession from Serbia. The protesters gathered beneath a banner that read "Kosovo is Serbia" and listened to speeches by local Serb leaders in the ethnically divided town of Kosovska Mitrovica — as they've done every day since Kosovo's ethnic Albanian leadership proclaimed statehood on February 17. Serbs consider Kosovo the heart of their ancient homeland and the cradle of their Serbian Orthodox...
