https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flag_Protection_Act_of_2005


The Flag Protection Act of 2005 was a proposed United States federal law introduced by Senator Bob Bennett (R-UT), with original co-sponsor Senator Hillary Clinton (D-NY).[1] Additional co-sponsors include Barbara Boxer (D-CA), Mark Pryor (D-AR) and Thomas Carper (D-DE). The law would have prohibited burning or otherwise destroying and damaging the US flag with the primary purpose of intimidation or inciting immediate violence or for the act of terrorism. It called for a punishment of no more than one year in jail and a fine of no more than $100,000.[1][2][3]

Yeah but that hasn't even been passed so what's the point. The fact that he could even propose something like this is jarring and I'm more afraid that it might be passed into law considering the current political climate. Well hopefully he's joking........no he's not joking.....shit...whatever I'll just go with he's joking and move on.

Not sure what your point is here. It was only a proposed law that never passed. It failed (although by a slim margin, to its credit) as far as I am aware the Supreme Court's ruling in the case of the United States v. Eichmann still stands, stating that burning the flag was a constitutionally protected form of free speech.

The point is if the media and democrats attack him for a tweet he can turn it around on them, making them look retarded. Turns out their Glorious Leader Kim Jong Hill isn't as progressive as they tried to pass her off to be.

What's great is I'm sure there will be lots of flag burnings in the coming week, making leftists look even worse in the eyes of the non-indoctrinated.
8 more years confirmed.

It's like you don't even read your own sources...

Plus, that has nothing to do with Trump, rendering it meaningless.

I can't think of a single recent protest with flag burnings that didn't have a lot of violence and intimidation going on
"pigs in a blanket, fry em like bacon"
I'd love to see those fuckers jailed, fined and finally deported to a third world shithole of their choosing

The flagstaff protest had flag burnings and I don't remember hearing anything about violent actions. Same with the ones at American University, in fact a faculty member of the latter said

The expressions were at times heated, but peaceful and safe. The university does not condone the burning of the American flag, even though the act is protected speech.
