    And there is nothing wrong with that.


    Lets say im in London. Its July 4th and i'm out hanging out with my American buddies in London. Some guy comes in the restaraunt/bar wearing a full Brittish flag designed 'leisure suit' or some ****. Something like you'd see on Austin Powers movies.

    Is he being a dick? Am I 'expected' to get angry? Is it acceptable to get angry?

    No. Its ****ing retarded to even suggest that my three questions are acceptable at all.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    Sometimes you have to show the Americans as the ones being disrespected before the liberals can understand.

    Or should I have just said 'swoon' instead of understand?

    Please show me where I 'supported' violence.





    The idiots who approached them are not the persons you should be defending you know it.
    So, when I say someone is 'wrong', you take that to mean I'm 'defending' them. And when I said they shouldn't be so thin-skinned...

    Why is it that liberals defend free expression up until its being used to express pro-America views?
    Why are far-righties only capable of making strawmen?


    Why is it acceptable for Mexican-AMERICAN students to have a negative reaction to the American flag?
    Their negative reaction wasn't too the flag. But I've only said that 5 other times in this thread.

    What were the students doing other than just wearing the flag?

    I think he was asking what the kids were doing, and not making any inference at all about what you might do.

    Since the principal didn't send them home for anything other than the shirts, one would have to conclude that they weren't doing anything out of the ordinary.

    Yes... You completely avoided the question.

    Yes, apparently the U.S. Flag has the power of purification.

    Any person(s) carrying, holding, waving, or wearing the U.S. Flag can do anything they want, because they are just being patriotic.
