Trump Idolaters Desecrate the American Flag

Flag desecration is usually offensive to those, who consider themselves to be patriots. Congress has tried to outlaw flag desecration, but the Supreme Court ruled that it is protected free speech. Congress has also attempted to pass a constitutional amendment to protect the flag, but has not yet been able to pass the amendment. Because it is currently legal and protected speech, however, does not mean that everyone has to like it.

Desecration of the flag is not just burning the flag in protest, but other uses of the flag, which are not respectful of the flag as a national symbol, such as putting the image of an idolized politician, defacing it with political slogans or flying it upside down. The flag should not be disrespected on either side of the political spectrum.

Here, Trump supporters desecrate the American flag with pride.

If is abusive when the Left desecrates the flag for political purposes, it should still be considered abuse when the Right does it.

This is an flag that was desecrated at an Occupy LA encampment. If it is offensive when Occupy did it, it is also offensive when Trump idolaters do it.
