    They literally cover the coffins of dead soldiers with the flag. Not a single soldier would claim that the flag is for them. But it's pretty ignorant to pretend that the flag doesn't mean more to them.

    They also do black history month. Perhaps all this stuff should be saved for that.

    You can't expect SJW types to do research. After all, facts are "invented by the white man to keep them down".

    or been there at fathers, uncles, and cousins memorial services as a flag is draping their coffin, then removed, precisely folded, and presented to the spouse or parent....I guarantee it means something

    That doesn't change anything. Not sure how it would. It isn't yours it isnt theirs it isn't anyones'.It is for all Americans and nothing more.

    In fact protesting the flag and anthem(being unpatriotic) is in the best interest of the country's future imo. The nationalism has gotten absolutely out of hand to a creepy level.

    And what month of the NFL season where coaches and players are required to wear the paraphernalia is that?

    In fact protesting the flag could be considered more patriotic than worshipping it.

    no, no it could not....you can play with the semantics, but it is by definition the opposite of patriotic

    Yup, I gotta stop saying that. I suppose i should say its in the best interest to dissent rather than patriotic. Looked up the definition(s) and I can't make it fit lol.
