Here is a video report from WISTV in South Carolina about a public high school teacher in Chapin, South Carolina, who reportedly stomped on the American Flag during classes in front of students. The teacher has reportedly been replaced for the rest of the school year as an investigation of exactly what happened continues.
Here is video (H/T GatewayPundit) of a massive American Flag being unfurled at Ground Zero yesterday in preparations for today’s 10th Anniversary of the September 11 attacks on the United States. The flag is reportedly the largest free-flying flag in the world.
Absolutely beautiful. God Bless America.
MSNBC’s Martin Bashir says Sarah Palin’s bus tour “could be in breach of a federal law” because her bus displays the U.S. flag:
In his accusatory “Clear the Air” segment, the former ABC Nightline anchor lectured Palin that “standards of respect and etiquette” discourage using the American flag for “any advertising purpose whatsoever.”
“She drapes herself in the stars and stripes and makes millions of dollars in the process,” chided Bashir. “This has got nothing to do with the presidency and everything to do with filling her pockets.”
The only problem: the Supreme Court ruled in 1989 that flag burning is protected by the First Amendment. If flag burning is protected speech, certainly displaying the flag on a tour bus is legal. Or do the rules not apply to Sarah Palin? In Bashir’s warped sense of reality, conservatives like Palin would be arrested for flying the American flag at rallies in which they promote causes that Bashir does not support.

Here is raw video from a protest in Baton Rouge, Louisiana where an LSU Student decided he would burn a U.S. Flag to stand up for “due process for students and suspected terrorists alike.” Apparently other LSU students got wind of it – many more than he expected!
A very un-supportive crowd (but supportive of the USA) greeted the student – waving flags, chanting “USA,” and eventually throwing some water-balloons at the would-be flag burner. He never got around to burning the flag. As he began to read his statement, police decided to escort him out for his own safety.
NOTE: Notice the guy’s classic statement, “It’s funny – Facebook said that there were only going to be 64 of you!” Also, notice the man in the military uniform who approaches the protester and shouts repeatedly, “My brothers died for you!”
Here is video of Muslim protesters in London burning the American Flag yesterday. This raw video shows what the U.S. is up against in the world of Islam today.
Notice, the kind Islamic leader said they were burning more than the U.S. Flag:
“We burn this constitution which represents the non-Islamic law…..”
You see, that’s the crux of the matter. They want Sharia Law imposed wherever they live. They will use freedom given to them by the Constitution to try and destroy the Constitution.
If anything, this hatred of the U.S. is tame in Britain compared to what is displayed on a regular basis across the world where Islam is dominant. For all the talk about the “Religion of Peace,” there is precious little evidence when you go looking for it.
Here is video of Fox News’ Megyn Kelly reporting the story of the homeless man who picked up a fallen flag after a storm and carefully folded it “military-style” and placed it on the hood of a vehicle. The homeless man did not know it, but his act of patriotism was caught on security video, and now he is a national hero.
What a contrast to these ingrates.
This is unbelievable. Here is a video report from Wooster, Ohio, where someone went down the street in the middle of the night on Memorial Day and set fire to 25 flags. The local Rotary Club puts up 1,000 flags for Memorial Day, and residents are shocked that someone would do such a thing.
Police are looking for the perpetrator, and are not sure if this was just a random act, or if it was politically motivated.
I’m sure the punishment for whoever did this can’t be harsh enough to fit the crime.
