This Is How You Like To See A Flag Burning

Angry Mob Chases Would-Be Flag Burner Off LSU Campus

Read the article

A student was going to burn a flag in protest. instead he decided to read a statement. When he stood to read the statement, he was chased off by a group of students.

What was this leftist genius protesting? Another student had been arrested for stealing an American flag from the LSU War Memorial and burning it, causing $7500 in damage.

Some will look at the actions of the crowd and condemn them. I question if they should have acted as they did, they were throwing objects at him.

With that said, people are getting tired of the anti-Americanism from the left.

I'm glad they ran the little bastard off.

While I'm writing this Michelle Malkin is on Fox & Friends discussing this:

Caltrans, court block town’s efforts to display the US flag

A private group in the small town of Orcutt, California wants to place a flag on land between a highway exit and a park-and-ride lot. The flag would be surrounded by five pillars representing each of the branches of the armed services. Caltrans, the California Department of Transportation, vetoed the idea because it is an "impermissible act of "public expression"".

Any wonder that people are getting frustrated?

Well, yes I am amazed that we need government permission to express our love for country. The incident does illustrate a wide gulf between country and government. That said, given the level of our idiocy, CALTRANS does have a good point. It would only be a matter of time before some Moslem group would want to put up a large crescent flag over a memorial for Barack bin Laden or Osama Hussein Obama and of course, no one in state or federal government would have the stones to tell them to piss off.

Only in the land of "Mexifornia". Hellsbells give the dang place to the Mexicans and let em fly a Mexican Flag since the US Flag seems unimportant.

The last jackass I remember dealing with who burned the Flag(a professor from Central America at a university that I was attending) was invited by a group of Nam Vets to leave the country while he could.

He vacated his office and his house within 48 hours and has not been heard from since. Guess he got the message.
Never deal gently with those who would claim to burn the flag in protest as part of their right to expression. They'd burn you if they got a chance. They don't deserve to breath the same air as those who truly love this country.

Ticker, I would vote for an amendment banning flag burning. Free speech my ass.

Ticker, you'll hate my piece about Californians getting down on a school which told a California kid not to fly the flag "citing safety issues"'s up tomorrow.
I don't usually do this at others' blogs, but my blog dovetails with Chuck's so much (as usual!) that I wanted to tell you guys about'll make you feel so good.

Z, I'll stop by

There are a lot of flaming Leftists at LSU, but there are also a lot of conservatives.

Good on that conservative group for running the wannabe flag-burner off the campus.
