    It pisses me off that deplorables get to wave our flag

    I don't live in a red state, so I know it could be a lot worse. Still, I see them a few times a week. They stand on the corner with a pro-tRump sign, waving a big American flag. Or they drive around in their trucks with two American flags flapping in the back, tRump bumper stickers plastered everywhere. It pisses me off to no end.

    Since when do they get to claim my flag?! tRump is working to destroy the country, doing everything in his power to corrupt democracy, and repubs are aiding him. The flag has become, for me, a symbol of treason. Now when I spot it, I feel an overwhelming sense of loathing. I want to tear it from their hands and stomp on it. At the same time, I know that is simply not right.

    The flag should symbolize freedom, democracy, and rule of law. It should symbolize the very opposite of what the deplorables hold dear. I put it to you DUers that, as far as symbols go, the flag is one of (if not the) most powerful. It elicits a visceral reaction, and that reaction must be one of pride in our country's institutions. I say it is absolutely necessary to reclaim it as a democratic symbol. I just don't know how to go about wresting it from deplorable hands.

    flag everywhere, like they owned it and it was for them. Today, the flag has often been used/associated with the hatefulness in the US. The underbelly of hatred and racism that Trump promotes. It's damn disgusting.

    3. Yes, I admit that this is not a new phenomena

    I guess I'm just tired of allowing the RW to decide what our country's most powerful symbol stands for. We shouldn't think in terms of burning the flag (or desecration in some manner) to demonstrate our disgust of the right. We are the majority, damn it! It should be our symbol. Let the deplorables burn the flag instead of us. That would be a fitting metaphor.

    6. Not only that they have co-opted the Bible

    They are the most hateful, bitter racists but apparently God is a republican. I have been told I'm going to burn in hell because I'm a Democrat!

    The flag YOU burned? The flag YOU trampled? The flag YOU declared a racist symbol? The flag YOU shit on daily? F-Off "ProudLib72"! It my be "your flag" because you were born in the US, but you and your DU-grade ilk have been dishonoring it for over 50 years.
    Facts don't matter to DUpipo.

    Note to "Warpy" and "shockey80": I voted for Donald Trump! I would do so again!

    When was the last time they waved the Flag?

    Or does burning it and stomping on it count as flag waving now days?

    excuse me? Your flag? Many of you encourage flag burning and loathe the Military. Why do you get to claim it as your flag?

    They don't. If it were up to the liberals, the Stars and Stripes would go the way the Confederate flag is going now. Soon you won't see the stars and bars even in textbooks, because it might "trigger" some liberal teachers.

    The liberal flag is the rainbow flag, the flag representing the right to screw whomever and however you want under whatever conditions you deem necessary.

    That has nothing to do with bravery, honor and pride of nation.

    Conservatives believe in waving, respecting and saluting the American flag.
    Liberals, in contrast, believe in stomping on it, urinating on it, defecating on it, and burning it.
    It's the symbol of our country and, if anything, WE should have more claim to wave it than the Left does, for the reason I just listed.
    I can still remember at the 2008 Democratic National Convention, there were hundreds if not thousands of Dems there waving miniature American flags, and nearly all of them afterwards threw their flags in the trash (The Republicans managed to recover those flags before they wound up in a landfill, and used them at a Republican rally).
    Shows a lot about how liberals really feel about their country's flag.
    The only flags liberals care about are the rainbow flag and the hammer and sickle.

    You have to appreciate these people really have no other way to express themselves without opening themselves up to bodily harm should they try to repeat this in public places. Their little forum is a safe place for idiots to ramble and blame other normal productive Americans for all the mistakes and crimes the liberals have committed. And it is just getting cranked up, wait until all the fun stuff starts with charges and trials and they get their asses handed to them in the mid terms.

    It's better to be pissed off than pissed on. Your candidate lost the election, ours won. Elections have consequences. We don't care what you think anyway.

    Us so called deplorables are tired of your liberal/ progressive /socialist bull shit and we showed it at the polls.
    So sit down and STFU.
    I love the sound of liberal heads exploding in the morning!!

    Toxically masculine and proud of it!

    I will give up my guns when the liberals give up their illegal aliens.
