In fact, at times, it was carried lower than the other two flags. NEITHER of those flags represented a standing government and BOTH of those flags represented governments that our STARS AND STRIPES was forced to defeat in war.

 

They should NEVER be displayed anywhere near our STARS AND STRIPES. That was a TRUE DISRESPECT to our flag and a NATIONAL DISGRACE.

 

It is very clear why those who are speaking out now about the bending of the knee disrespecting the flag, didn't speak out then about former enemy flags being carried next to, and higher than our own.


To your excellent point, NC, any bets as to how these dispicable people feel about Kaepernick and others taking a knee during the National Anthem?

Using "OUR" flag to promote hate is not respectable to most American's.  Yet not one Conservative here pointed out this "disrespect" last month.  And why is that?  Maybe it's because those using the flag in a very disrespectfil manner were white.

 

 


Or "maybe" the right doesn't associate with low lives like the left does and doesn't see a need to instigate a fight like the left does.

Those folks and I don't get along long enough for actual dialog to happen.....so I never have and most likely never will know if any know our flag's protocol.  My guess is the vast majority have never been taught and couldn't care less about it's correct handling, use and disposal even if they had.  

 

The Encylopedia Britannica has a comprehensive piece available on-line for reference. 

 

SCOTUS has said, in essence, free speech trumps protocol [sorry....I couldn't resist], so that part of the argument is settled.  What is not settled is whether or not those who clearly intend to destroy this Nation, as we know it, are traitors. It's already clear they are hypocrites.
