It does not include Barack Obama. At times, it certainly should include you. But you did not say what you thought was most desecrating, a WWE wrestler wearing a star-spangled speedo or someone burning the flat.<quoted text>Until Congress passes a Flag Desecration Amendment;courts have ruled that freedom of speech is protected,but desecration of the flag is considered a public outrage. If someone hates our country so much that they would disrespect the very symbol of freedom,independence and loyalty and American nationalism for the United States as a nation, state, government, and set of policies, but also as a set of ideals they should self deport or move to any place in the world that doesn't hold honor our principles as set forth in The Declaration of Independence and The Constitution. That includes Barack Obama,Bon Voyage.
Personally, I would not burn the flag. What for? I like to see it flying on GOV'T bldgs and homes like Americans do, the bunting or sash or whatever is nice, and at embassies of course, but if someone is peed off at the gov't for what he/she perceives to be an injustice, why not? Beats planting bombs or setting fire to buildings. Don't forget, Rogue, was never as well said as "The flag is the refuge of the scoundrel".
