Man gets 15 years for burning LGBT flag

Recommended Posts

I dont agree with the parallel you are drawing. He stole the flag from a church and it was definitely motivated by hate against a group of people but that sentence is fucking ridiculous

No ? … Is burning an American flag not also an act of hate ?  The difference is , had the guy stolen an American flag from a church and burned it , he would most probably get probation , or 6 months .

Because this statement makes no sense:

"Americans are a minority group in the US that has had to deal with violence and prejudice from fellow Americans" where "LGBT are a minority group in the US that has had to deal with violence and prejudice from fellow Americans" does

I agree with you. Stomp and burn the American flag and nothing happens to you. 

Some have gone so far to political correctness we’ve lost all sensibility. Stealing a flag isn’t a felony. In no universe is stealing then burning any flag worth a decade plus in prison.

Is hate not hate ?...a dooshbag that hates Americans and burns the flag is not a hater as well ?  Hate is hate.

No...by law hate is not hate anymore. There are different kinds of hate and different levels of hate as determined by the though police. I am not saying I agree with it, but that is the law now

Wait, so you're saying that because someone is hated against more makes it where they should not be held as a crime in their responses to burning a flag? 

That literally makes no sense at all.

Someone's living under a rock if they think American flags have not been stolen and vandalized.  

And I'm obviously in agreement with @Freebird Lives aced @SaintRay

Who said that?

How am I showing an ugly head? You've literally even said in here that since the gay community has been attacked that they get a pass for burying the flag.

My question was where did I ever say an American flag was never stolen?

Since you quoted my posts, you just proved that I never said that. I appreciate it but I guess you arent man enough to admit it or apologize
