Flag Burning

Vincent Viewpoints Header-vincent-kenWell, here we go again, or is it still? After a handful of students in Mass. burned the American flag, Trump tweeted that people who desecrate the flag should either do jail time or lose their citizenship.

Anderson Cooper, the talking head at CNN, was quick to point out that the Supreme Court in the case of Texas vs. Johnson (1989) ruled it was a violation of the first amendment to prohibit burning the flag. I for one am less than enamored over some of the court’s decisions in recent years, this being one of them. It seems to me that freedom of speech, like all freedoms comes with a dose of responsibility.

While I’m not against people expressing their dissatisfaction of conditions or events, there are better ways to do it than desecrating our flag. Frankly, I agree with Trump and I’m probably not alone in that. Too many men and women have died for that flag and all that it represents to stand by and let some half-baked kids or radicals make a travesty of it.

Flag Burning

It is interesting to note that Jeffrey Lord, an analyst at CNN, opined that Trump’s statement is likely to rejuvenate his supporters and make him even more liked.

Perhaps Trump will appoint some justices that have some sense and guts enough to reverse some of these radical left-wing decisions.

Cooper and others have spent months trying their best to make Trump look cheap and low-class. Yet he felt it okay to suggest that perhaps the President Elect should spend more time reading briefings and less time watching TV. Talk about low blows. Oh well, what can we expect from our current main stream media? Is it naïve to believe that Trump, or any other one person, can watch all news broadcasts and write all the ditties on social media sites? Perhaps he has some staff? Oh yes, I nearly forgot. The daily briefing sheets also include a digest of news broadcasts.

CONVERSATIONS

  1. Great message, Ken. Thank you for speaking up on this issue. Just because something is legal does not mean that it is respectful! Mr. Trump is not the idiot that the mainstream media tries to portray him to be. Thankfully, he has a lot of common sense – a quality that millions of American voters connected with him about on November 8th. If someone wants to burn the precious flag of a nation (thus disrespecting all that the flag stands for), they might consider exercising their disgust for that nation by moving to another nation. Just my respectful thoughts in the matter. 🙂
