24 April 2016. You Don’t Spit at People to Make a Point

00.01v Occupy Wall Street. 19.10.11. Phoenix AZ USA

This is more respectful than the “Black Lives Matter” people trampling on the flag… here’s the sad part… the BLM people knew that they were inciting, and didn’t care…

If you want a symbolic gesture, don’t burn the flag, wash it.

I saw an online image of two black ladies trampling on an American flag to show their commitment to “Black Lives Matter”. That move was both unwise and inflammatory. It showed ungrounded contempt for the symbol of this country. I’m a Leftist… I’m patriotic… the two aren’t exclusive of one another, despite what the loud rightists say! To trample on the flag isn’t only stupid, it’s spitting in people’s faces, for surely these women should’ve known that their act would incite people to anger. There are right and wrong ways of protesting, indeed, there are right and wrong ways of rebelling against an evil.

You don’t spit in people’s faces to make a point. Full stop.
