Proud to be an American?
was listening to a radio talk show just after the attacks of 9/11 and
heard something that was very unsettling.
A man called in to say that after “what happened on Tuesday,”
he’d like to see someone try to burn an American Flag now.
He thinks that anyone burning a flag after what happened would
probably get beat to death, and, according to him, rightly so. This maniac believes that this sort of protest, a right to
freedom of expression that is protected by our very Constitution, should
be seen as an act of terrorism, and that it would be only right in such
a circumstance for any real American who witnesses the act to exact a
vigilante justice. He feels
that a U.S. citizen now has the right to beat another to death for
burning an American flag.
