    Yes, they should be able to fly those flags.

    And yes, I should be able to think poorly of them if they're seemingly putting far more focus and love and care towards their ethnic heritage rather than the country they're actually living in.

    I'll be fully honest. I have no problem with a mexican or italian or irish or any other heritage individual proudly displaying that heritage. But when your focus is more on that then being American, when you always fly their flag but never the stars and stripes, when you take advantage of the benefits of this country while simply pumping up another, then I've got little respect for you.

    However if you knock out Brock Lesnar I'll at least give you a temporary pass. Temporary.

    Outside of the beginning of May, it doesn't bother me that much. But because May 3rd is the Polish Constitution day followed immediately by Cinco de Mayo, I hate that all of them drive around with flags all over their cars ****ing up traffic.

    But as far as ather countries flags outside of businesses, it's just a part of Chicago and it always has been. Without it's constant stream of Immigrants, this city wouldn't have become what it is today.

    Are you being serious, Rat ?
    Its a stretch - freedom of speech and it must be limited.
    During a permitted rally or protest, I see nothing wrong at all with the protesters proudly carrying their banners or flags.

    I don't consider protests to be "peaceable assemblies", nor do I consider their activities to fall under the "freedom of expression". They are loud and disorderly and they turn into riots far too easily. They interfere with citizens going about their lawful business. So, yes, when they gather in numbers and start shouting and waving picket signs, I think firehoses and attack dogs are the most appropriate response.

    I don't see why not. There can be obnoxious forms of doing so (as shown earlier), but whatever.

    Seems like a gross generalization to me.
    Nationalism in high dosages may be hazardous to your health. Please consult a psychiatrist before beginning a regular regimen, and if feelings of elitism and douchbaggery continue, discontinue immediately before you become unable to do so on your own.

    The founding fathers would probably argue against your position...

    "The jaws of power are always open to devour, and her arm is always stretched out, if possible, to destroy the freedom of thinking, speaking, and writing."
    John Adams

    "If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you; and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen."
    Samuel Adams

    "Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote!"
    Benjamin Franklin

    "The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people, it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government -- lest it come to dominate our lives and interests."
    Patrick Henry

    "Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom, must, like men, undergo the fatigue of supporting it."
    Thomas Paine

    "It is the duty of the patriot to protect his country from its government."
    Thomas Paine

    What country can preserve its liberties if its rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? - Thomas Jefferson

    "Posterity, you will never know how much it cost the present generation to preserve your freedom. I hope you will make good use of it. If you do not, I shall repent in heaven that ever I took half the pains to preserve it." - John Adams

    The Founding Fathers would have opposed many of my positions. I honor them as national heroes, but that doesn't mean I'm in lockstep with their beliefs.

    I'm all for a head getting knocked in every now and then but I would save those for people that are an actual threat to the state.

    All that said they have the constitutional right to flay another nation's flag. However they still have no business calling themselves an American.
    I don't understand. Why wouldn't you want more multiculturalism in your nation? Every Italian-American, Irish-American, or German-American in your country brings more to the table than just a single mass of "Americans".
