    I'll even go a step further and say I have no problem with people displaying pride in their ethnic heritage. I don't wave an Italian flag, but I'm quite proud to be Italian and display my pride in my heritage mostly through food and family traditions.

    That seems dangerously multicultural, are you a secret socialist?

    I remember in Baltimore you could tell the neighborhood by the flags you see. The main three I remember were Irish, Italian, Greek

    I swear there are just as many Norwegian flags in Minnesota as there are US flags. I personally don't give a rip and I would consider it freedom of speech.

    As long as it's not part of a protest, I've got no problem with people flying flags from other countries. If they're marching down the street with picket signs and foreign flags, that's just one more reason for them to get the hose.

    My question to you is should they be able to fly those flags in America?
    I think anyone calling themselves an American should only fly American flags and anyone wishing to be American should only fly American flags. Because if that person's former country was great enough that he or she want to be flying its flag here in the US then why are is that person here in the US instead of their former country?

    My favorite Teddy Roosevelt quote
    There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. When I refer to hyphenated Americans, I do not refer to naturalized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all... The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities, an intricate knot of German-Americans, Irish-Americans, English-Americans, French-Americans, Scandinavian-Americans or Italian-Americans, each preserving its separate nationality, each at heart feeling more sympathy with Europeans of that nationality, than with the other citizens of the American Republic... There is no such thing as a hyphenated American who is a good American. The only man who is a good American is the man who is an American and nothing else.

    Theodore Roosevelt

    All that said they have the constitutional right to flay another nation's flag. However they still have no business calling themselves an American.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    They have a constitutional rights to fly any flag they want on our soil. That's the beauty of America. Others however, do not have the Constitutional right against being offended. If it offends someone to see a foreign flag then that's their problem.
