Kneeling. . .Burning. . .which is best?

Posted By: MillRatUSMC aka Ricardo

Ricardo has copied & pasted the text below;

The cases were Texas v. Johnson in 1989, and US v. Eichman in 1990.
The former case stemmed from a flag burning protest at the 1984 Republican National Convention.
And a Texas law banning desecration of a venerated object, and the latter responded to a bill.
From Congress that made harming the flag illegal.
In both cases, the Supreme Court ruled that burning a flag.
Is an act of expression and "symbolic speech."
And exactly they type of action that the First Amendment was designed to protect.

No act of speech is so obnoxious that it merits tampering with our First Amendment.
Our Constitution, and our country, is stronger than that, ultimately, people.
Like that pose little harm to our country.
But tinkering with our First Amendment might.
~ turtle head mitch mcconnell

Both are acts of protest against what they view as unjust.
It's funny that one that avoided serving his nation.
Is now questioning the patriotism of other Americans.

Not this tide.
Not this tide.
Not this tide.
None this tide,
Nor any tide,


Disrespecting the flag by kneeling - UNPATRIOTIC

Looking more like the puppet Walter!
