The burning of any country’s flag should be punishable as if you don’t like the flag of the country you’re in just leave and find a country and flag that suits you.
Here is what set off the firestorm this morning and liberals through the roof:
Nobody should be allowed to burn the American flag – if they do, there must be consequences – perhaps loss of citizenship or year in jail!

“The Flag Protection Act of 2005 was a proposed United States federal law introduced by Senators Hillary Clinton and Robert Bennett. The law would have outlawed flag burning, and called for a punishment of one year in jail and a fine of $100,000.” – thank God the electoral college didn’t elect her, so they wouldn’t have to prevent her from taking the presidency!
As a military veteran, I believe we do need to make a new law that supercedes the old law and makes it a crime to burn the national flag. This is not freedom of speech, but it is anti-government and we cannot any longer allow treasonous ways in our country you either love us or leave us.
Well, it seems these liberals were beside themselves, they had to tweet hate toward Trump when Hillary proposed the same legislation with same repercussions years ago.
