Every other Nation does so We should as Well. The LIE that it is just a piece of cloth needs to be ended. It is something many gave their lives for and even more since it was made to stand for this Nation. Try burning a Rainbow flag and see what happens. People will try to kill you for doing so. So if a made up flag gets that type of respect then one that Thousands have given their lives for should get even more respect.

Totally agree with the comment made above by Jesse. If you disrespect or burn an American flag there should be consequences. It is a symbol of the sacrifices that have been made over hundreds of years for our country. God Bless all who have fought for our freedom and died to protect it.

I will preface my statement by saying that I would never even Harbor a thought of burning the flag. Having said that, I believe that any person who buys the flag, it is for him to fly it or even burn it. It is his property and his right under the Constitution of freedom of speech.

Wow! Sometimes, being correct is like committing suicide. I do not often disagree with our President, but he needs to give this one more thought. I despise publicly destroying The US Flag to make a statement. I would never do such a thing. But, making a law against it opens up a horrible can of worms that would affect us all. We need to figure this out. But, we don’t need to lower the level of our Nation’s standards to those of lesser countries.

If you want to burn it, DON’T BUY IT. I spent 24+ years in the USMC and every time a flag is burned or not treated like is should be, it hurts because of all the service people that gave their LIVES for this nation and to protect the FLAG of the USA.

I agree, any CITIZEN has the constitutional right to burn the flag if they own it. And there’s the crux of the matter. A lot of BLM/ ANTIFA pukes grab flags from the hands of counter protestors or from front porches and proceed to burn them. When that happens, they no longer have the constitutional right. If someone grabs or sets fire to the flag on my front porch, it is both theft and destruction of private property. Now refer back to the above word in caps. CITIZEN! I’ve seen illegals burn the American flag on our streets. They are in violation. Any illegal should be arrested and prosecuted for burning our flag in protest.

The American people appeared to have lost all patriotism. The American flag, the American Anthem, the Pledge of Allegiance are a way to show respect to our country and reverence to our freedoms. Lately, some of us have forgotten what this country represents. And those who want to destroy a free nation into a Communist harvest should recognize that Communists offer a lot and deliver NOTHING more than generalized poverty, lack of freedom, lack of rights, and lack of justice for ALL. All of those who immigrated to this GREAT COUNTRY should remember why we came. WAKE UP AMERICA!

I love the idea, it bothers me that people can get away with that sort of thing, A bunch of years ago SCOTUS reminded us of the First Amendment, you know, “Congress shall make no law……” made it clear it was legal to burn the flag.. Like it or not, there is a freedom there. And we understand that, that the First protects unpopular speech, the kind that other people would get mad at. What we DON’T seem to get, is that , while the doer is free from law coming down on him/her, remember, the Constitution doesn’t forbid you expressing your opinion, either. (And, if you were there speaking to him, and you slipped, and somehow broke his nose, it would really be an accident, wouldn’t it?)

PEOPLE should be LOCKED UP for BURNING the AMERICAN FLAG. THE Same goes for THOSE WHO don’t STAND for the FLAG and ANTHEM. My Late FATHER was a MEDIC in a WAR…IT brought TEARS to HIS EYES ALL the SOLDIERS HE PATCHED UP and THOSE that DIED. From SamuraiQueen. 😩

The Commie George Bush Sr signed the law calling flag burning as free speech. The Bush’s and Clinton’s were all Commie’s.

Including Reagan, Trump is the best President we’ve had in my lifetime, and I’m voting for him again in November, but a law against flag burning is crazy. Leftists running our government schools throw you out for saying something they don’t like, but as long as it’s their own flag they’re burning, can’t we be better than they are? Our brilliant founders knew it’s better to use responses other than putting someone in jail for saying something we don’t like. As a U.S. Army veteran, I definitely don’t like it. As an American who swore to protect and defend our Constitution, I’ll continue to defend EVERYONE’S freedom of speech. We fought to be different from every other nation, and we ought to be better than they are.

The problem is we allowed the european people to come here and influence our politicians, judges, I heard a supreme court judge say when I look at a law or a new law I look to eruope that is so wrong he should have been removed immediately but nothing is done to these corrupt politicians judges police military, I use to think most were for God and Country, but not anymore seen to much disgraceful behavior by our politicians judges military, trying to take God out of everything, trying to force us to accept perverted disgusting behavior as normal, that was a problem way back before we became a Country, that is what our Forefathers fought against indecent behavior, taxes, that were way out of hand on the the working class and we have that now. Again because We the People quit paying attention

Sadly you can get in trouble for trying to correct what they teach. It has been approved by your school board, look there for answers.

The only time a flag should be burned is when it is taken out of servise and burned with reverence to all the great men and women that gave their lives to keep us free. Also taps should be played.

God Bless the U.S.A. !!

It’s already against the law to set fires, even in your own yard in most places. I say you should be allowed to burn an American flag only if it is tightly wound around your body.

Nearly all other nations have a law prohibiting burning their own nations’ flags. It’s time for the same law in America. Burning your own nations’ flag is an act of treason.
Society’s attitudes are so backwards these days, you’re more likely to get attacked for burning a UN or Soviet Union flag that for burning the Stars and Stripes.

Something to think about: Every time the hard left has a squawker who is ‘offended’ and ‘hurt’ by the beliefs/actions of others whom with they disagree – they seem to get immediate action to ‘correct’ the situation, often placing a penalty or burden on the ‘offender’ (cake-makers or flower businesses who object to doing creations for gay joining ceremonies). Burning the Flag of the people who love Freedom, America and our U.S. Military genuinely offends Real Americans who know a lot of people suffered, fought and gave the ultimate sacrifice for what this flag represents. Graves all over the world are filled with these people. But when the righteous express anger and frustration with America-Haters, who care for none of our unique values and now they are hurting those who love the flag – nothing is done to correct this offense. It is all one-sided. So maybe it is time to correct this grievous wrong against those who truly love Freedom, limited government and make it a violation of a law which prohibits destruction of the symbol of our country. And make those flags – indestructible – just in case.

Strzok is a traitor. He should be in jail. EVERYTHING he had to say was without foundation and we know it. So why don’t we get slander and liable charges against him. He needs to be taught a very HARSH lesson.
