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.

Below, Trump supporters desecrate the American flag by mutilating it with Trump’s face and writing on it.

It doesn’t matter, if it was ever a real flag or not. What matters is that it appears to people to represent the flag. Below is at link to the most relevant section of the flag code for most of these cases. It is about flag mutilation.

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

Here, a flag with Obama’s image on it. The national symbol should not be defaced and equated to a politician, whether it be Obama, Trump or someone else.

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.

A Trump supporter abusing the flag by cutting holes in it so she can wear it as clothing.

Even if the woman is attractive, it does not make it right.

Muslims abusing the flag by wearing it as a Hijab. If it’s wrong to wear it as a hijab, it is also wrong to wear as clothing in support of Trump, Obama or for other such reasons.

More Trump worshippers in Northern California desecrating the American flag by mutilation of it. They are either ignorant of flag etiquette or more likely just don’t care.

Some Trump supporters seemed to have valued Trump more than the flag and for that which it symbolizes. Of course, Ann Coulter has changed her opinion, as have some others, since this post was originally made. In this book Coulter replaced “God” with “Trump”, which is even more wrong and Obama-like than mutilating the American flag.

    They are either ignorant of flag etiquette or more likely just don’t care – most likely it is both… but let someone BURN that same flag and they’d be all over them like white on rice, or if that same person had put a picture of Obama on it, again they’d be all over it like white on rice! For these people like trumpfulSCHITski the law is for EVERYONE else – but NOT FOR THEM AS they (like trumpfulSCHITski) that THEY are ABOVE the LAW!

      I don’t recall seeing them mutilate the Trump flag in the same way. Seems to be a sign that they put Trump first over America and the law, as you say. The movement is foremost about Trump. I think it has cooled somewhat though in recent months.

  2. I feel a deep disgust for those who desecrate our nation’s flag by wearing it as a piece of clothing or putting it to any use other than flying proudly on a standard. If they believe they are showing their patriotism by doing so, they are wrong. They are showing disdain for the flag and at the same time showing contempt for our still-great country and its people represented by that flag.
