The Anthem, and the Flag.
It's not just America. This is something important to the entire World. Go watch World Cup highlights. Watch other countries; from Argentina to France.

The flag of a nation, and their anthem. They should always be respected. It is a symbol of a nation's history, it's culture, and it's togetherness.

I stand by my stance. If I ever saw a liberal burning or stomping on my flag, I am going to jail that day. Because someone's head is getting blooded.

re: The Anthem, and the Flag.
The NFL teams in London knelt for our Anthem and stood for Britain's. What an absolute disgrace.

re: The Anthem, and the Flag.
Our flag and anthem are perhaps the only ones that guarantee the right to protest and speak against anything. To me, it's not a sign of disrespect when someone kneels during the anthem or refuses to say the pledge of allegiance. If the flag, anthem and pledge were thinking entities, they would welcome the reminder that they're symbols of the strongest democratic republic ever to have existed.

I've seen some of every Olympics since I was around 8 years old, 1960. I can't ever remember an athlete, other than U.S. athletes, disrespect their country or their flag during any ceremony.

But someone will say "thank God for America and our freedoms", but at the price of being disrespectful to this country? I don't get it.

Because liberals are hypocrites.

These are the same people preaching equal rights for women and gay rights. Then preaching tolerance for Islamic nations. You know. The nations that oppress women and literally have death sentences for someone being gay.

They are just whinny victims. None of their points are valid, and all can be countered with ease.

No, that's the Constitution.

Just because it's a right being exercised doesn't mean it's good or should be supported. If I call you a dweeb, say frick Kentucky, and flip you off you don't consider that disrespectful because it's my right?

It's especially odd, given how much many of the "enlightened" amongst us like to lecture us as to how we should be more "European" in so many other aspects of our daily lives and existence.

the OP is stating that he supports violence to shut down people expressing different views than his own

and somehow he believes he is different than ANTIFA or the left

I wouldn't worry too much about it because in 100 years, there will be no more USA as we know it and the new entity will have a different flag and a different national anthem.

I go to forklift driving school with 5 Russians, a Brit, Nigerian, Sudanese, Pakistani, Moroccan, Kosovoan, Croatian, and a Yemeni.

I have asked them all recently what would happen if this happened in their country. The general consensus was that it would never happen and "who would do such a thing?" Although surprisingly the Brit, who is a liberal that HATES President Trump said that they should all be lined up in front of a firing squad, which I felt was a bit extreme.

It was extremely hard to see this on TV in the 60's, extremely hard. Prior to that no one wore any clothing or any type of apparel that suggested any resemblance of the American Flag, it was and is a very reverent experience when handling one.

I have come to intellectually understand that this is legal behavior, I don't think I could watch it mistreated in person.

And the flag, anthem and pledge are its symbols.

That's your opinion. Others see it as being good and should be supported.

If your opinion mattered to me, then it would be disrespectful. "We are as others see us" is far less important than being satisfied with how we see ourselves.

The flag is a symbol of national sovereignty.

The pledge is not a symbol at all. It's a flatout declaration.
