I believe it is exactly that. Next you'll be trying to tell us that the members of a Nazi group are not declaring their hatred of Jews by wiping their muddy shoes on an image of the Star of David.Btw, the symbolism of burning the American flag isn't a declaration of hatred of America.
I have another explanation, the obvious one--they are disloyal bastards who live in this country and take advantage of it, even while they continually run it down and carry water for its enemies.People always use "America" too broadly. For all we know, those folks love all manor of Americana, but simply oppose armed police officers due to the high numbers of unlawful killings by them.
I am sure everyone who has read your many other posts knows how much you like this country. And I am sure they will take your noble defense of the freedom of speech for all it is worth.I don't like US flag burning, have never burned one, and I don't want to disarm our police, but I see no problem with these people or their demonstration.
If my post offends you, I deeply Apple-O-Jize.
Eh. Quite frankly, I think there are quite a few people in this country who could benefit having some sense and common courtesy forcibly knocked into them.
One of the primary downsides of "civilization" has always been its tendency to coddle preening morons and allow their destructive and disruptive antics free expression. To paraphrase a famous quote here, "every move society has made to limit the power of physically strong psychopaths has simply made it that much easier for cunning psychopaths to seize power instead."
Every once in a while, a solid punch in the face is really the only response a certain situation calls for.

I am surprised at the posts on here. Some of them I want to disagree with and can't. This whole situation is like stupid collides with stupid. Nether side is actually thinking. Drama meets drama. I have a hard time relating to either side in this one. I think that is a good thing.
