Last summer, I was at an event and when the National Anthem was sung, I was standing with my hand on my heart, looking at the symbol of our nation, and tears came to my eyes. The thing that had flashed through my mind, that brought those tears were "Death of a Nation." Our beautiful country is going to pieces in front of our very eyes. We used to stand, shoulder to shoulder, against the nations that would try to bring us down. Now we are busy fighting among ourselves. Republican vs. Democrat without a thought that we are on the same side, we are all part of the same country. A house divided cannot stand! We must unite once more, or we are lost.
You are a true American. What you said is so true and so beautiful spoken. Thank you A PRYOR VETERAN

They brushed it off and they really don't care. Please give me your opinions on this and let me know what you think of a person who throws away the flag like garbage.
I, as a former veteran, am really offended when anybody disrespects the flag, because they are really disrespecting AMERICA. There is a proper way of disposing of the flag, and it certainl;y isn't throwing it into the garbage

I, as a former veteran, am very offended by anybody disrespecting the flag, for it is really AMERICA that they are disrespecting. There is a proper way of disposing of the flag, and it certainly is not throwing it in the garbage

I am a former veteran, and it really offends me to see anybody disrespect our flag, because they are actually disrespecting AMERICA, and all those that gave their life for it. There is a proper way to dispose of the flag, and it is certainly not throwing it in the trash. If I see anybody disrespect the flag I will let them know in no uncertain terms that I won't stand for it. God bless America, and all those that have given their all for her

That piece of fabric is the reason why we have the freedom in which we enjoy so much today. Many Men and Women have given their lives for that piece of fabric. Yes, indeed that is what i focus on. because I seem to have to work with one of those people that does not appreciate the freedom in which we enjoy today and thinks that the American is just that, a piece of fabric.

My GrandFather served in WWII under THAT flag. My Father, Vietnam, Me Desert Storm. I fly THAT flag at my house 24/7. hundreds of thousands gave their lives to defend THAT flag. If I see someone paying that kind of respect for THAT flag, you can bet your bottom dollar I'll step up and do something about it. For the rest of you, you are allowed to make these posts because of what THAT flag represents and who defended it. If you don't like it, stop posting and start walking. Thousands of illegals cross the border daily to get a piece of what THAT flag represents and you are welcome to take their place in Mexico.
God Bless America and THAT flag. Dispite what the sitting president and his czars trying to do to it.
You said exactly the way I feel about it, and I too, would do something about anybody disrespecting our flag. They need to realize it is not just a piece of fabric, but a symbol of America. When they disrespect the Flag, they also disrespect all that fought for that flag, My friends, brother, and myself. Enough said

Anybody who disrespects the flag is a thlilthy, disgusting, worthless, scared little coward and an embarrassment to all the rest of us Americans, and mostly to those who paid the ultimate sacrifice. If it was my choice what would happen to that stupid worthless human being, I would just hang them, they deserve to hang. I'm sorry, is hanging somebody who desecrates the flag wrong in a free country, no. With out the flag there is no freedom. They deserve to hang, I am disappointed in the person who posted this because they didn't do more to the person who threw the flag in the garbage, I would have confronted them then beaten them. Hearing this story really was one of the worst parts of my day, I am disgusted sick, I am filled with rage and anger now.

Have seen the photo of the black lady wiping he butt with our flag. That is not freedom of speech it is discretion. Occupy Wallstreet and black lives matter movement is just a bunch of lazy cowards that want a hand out from people who worked and earned their lively hoods.

Flying the confederate flag is very disrespectful to the American flag and anyone doing it is a traitor.

Displaying it is not disrespectful if you have any education at all. The historical significance outweighs any prejudicial connotations. I think that it is disrespectful that the gas have hijacked the colors of the rainbow. Political correctness is way out of control when the Confederate flag is not allowed to be displayed at historical monuments and sites. Even the nazis flag is displayed for legitimate historical purposes. Your inability to look past your own negative feelings that YOU project onto the symbol is where the problem lies. You being offended by everything is the problem. You not being able to let go of the past is the problem you projecting your hate and insecurity onto a symbol of historical significance is the problem. Wake up and stop being offended by everything. Why is your liberal entitlement so one sided. Bc your political correctness is only used when it benefits you. PC-ness is only played on others to create conformity to your way of life to bring others to your side. You never use it to protect others rights you only use it when it's to your benefits. Let the red necks have their flags and stop projecting your bias on them for doing so. You are the racist for projecting and judging someone who displayed the Confederate flag you are the racist assuming that it is a display of hate rather than a statement of pride. Have yiu talked to someone with ot up. Maybe their great grand father fought in the civil war. Heck they may just be a fan of dukes of Hazzard. Maybe they love American history and does civil war reenactments on the weekends. Stop projecting your prejudice and racism on other under the disguise of political correctness

Why can't my daughter wear anything rainbow without people thinking it is about gay pride. The gas have hijacked the rainbow from the leprechauns. I like the colors of the spectrum. And if I wear my Pink Floyd light spectrum shirt some uneducated culturally oblivious politically correct jerk like you assumes I am gay. Just like if i wore a shirt I go from my visit to Fort Sumpter with a confederate flag on it you would assume prejudiciously that I'm a racist. One side politics is ruining this country. Aying the race card only when it benefits yourself is hypocritical.

Confederacy = slavery, confederate flag = racism, the battle flag was only brought out in the 1950s during the equal rights movement by racist southerners.

Actually you are right and wrong. The confederate flag represents freedom. It also represents slavery. But there is a lot of bitterness at how the North treated the South after the war. Treat the South right and they may let go.

What's funny is Democrats were the slave Owners. This world has gotten mixed up. The Republican Party was
Formed to free slaves. The Democrats have fought hard to sell the opposite. So far they are winning.

Robert E Lee commander of the confederate army. Confederate army = slavery. It was the battle flag of the confederacy, not flown after the civil war until the early 1900s by the Ku Klux Klan, and again in the 1950s and 60s by Strom Thurmond and other Klan supporters. Thurmond became a Republican when the democrats became pro civil rights. Stars and bars = racism, ignorance, old junk trucks, and mobile homes up on blocks.

The KKK was a democrat organization. The Democrats tried to block civil rights.

True, until the democrats began supporting civil rights, then it became a republican organization. Is that about the time you became a republican? Donald Trump was a democrat until he began hating Hispanics, then he became a republican.

The Democrats are a party of liars and people seeking power. When they finally realized that blacks were no longer a bad guy to be exploited, they reinvented themselves to keep their power. And they did a great job at it. But there is a reason blacks stay in the ghettos of America and never rise up. Democrats have learned to use blacks. You tell them Republicans are at fault for their condition and then you don't do anything. It has been wildly successful.

Donald Trump loves his country. No other country in the world just leaves its borders open. There have been no jobs created. The only ones that have have been taken by illegals. Do the math.
