I'm patriotic about the America I knew growing up. I don't support the police state and tyrannical empire we've become. Those who worship the state are the enemies of liberty. Santa represents Christmas. We should place that above any flag as representing something worthy of worship.

Obviously these people have too much time on their hands if this is what they focus their attention on. To all of them, go volunteer, pick up trash in your local park, and get a life.

It's Christmas! If anything should be displayed on the pole, it is a crucifix. This is a Christian country.

False.

Man, I really dislike theists. Christians, Muslims, whatever- they are all the same to me.

Well if that's blasphemy, what do you call hanging a dead Jew on a cross during passover?
Saint Nicholas can hang on my flagpole anytime.

Dear Santa; Please give America swift victory over the enemy in this war that religious insanity brought to our shores(dont forget my titanium Desert Eagle .45) Thank you for your service Santa

What's more American than Santa Clause. He single handedly has boosted the economy, fought in both world wars, and killed Hitler.

This is about the stupidest thing I've heard in quite a while. Some of these self-appointed "patriots" are so zealous it approaches insanity.

Get over yourselves and let Santa have his season.

No, what's unpatriotic is running a mexican't flag on an American pole! Get rid of all of those first!
What does an American "pole" look like, and how does one differentiate it from a non-American pole?

Just another thing for people to complain about. I'm all for Patriotism, but this is just a silly little argument. It's almost Christmas. It's not hurting our country one bit.
