MORT’s meanderings

Freedom of Speech?  
To burn the Stars & Stripes?
That’s stupid and it’s nuts!
Over my lifetime, I’ve seen and heard a lot of ridiculous things.  But, condoning the burning the most glorious symbol of the United States of America, our flag, under a ridiculous contortion of the clause in the First Amendment that guarantees us Freedom of Speech, is utterly the most stupid thing I can imagine.
The millions of brave, patriotic men & women who have served in our Armed Forces down through our history – far too many of whom have been maimed, disfigured and killed – didn’t give their all so that others would have the right to blaspheme our sacred symbol of Liberty.  Those who would burn our flag, do not deserve the privilege of living freely in this nation.  They have negated all their rights to protection of their lives & property under the tenets of our founding document, The Constitution of the United States of America.
It is my considered assessment that anyone who disrespects or in any way dishonors the ‘Stars & Stripes’, deserves to have all rights of citizenship summarily voided .  Further, he or she should be ejected  immediately from our society and banned permanently from stepping onto U. S. soil, ever again.     Well, Congress??
