Ginger on Flag-Burning Irrelevance

Ginger has a good piece on just how silly introducing a flag burning amendment is in general, and doing so now in particular.

Supporters say it should be banned because it is disrespectful to those who died for our country to burn the flag they were serving to protect. My brother died in service to this country. He had an American flag draped over his casket. I don’t feel that it dishonors him in the least to continue to allow this kind of freedom of expression – because that’s what it is.

I’ll just reiterate the threat I made last year. Remember, Republicans, only you can prevent me burning a couple of flags.
