Burn Flags Not Embassies

Thursday, May 1st, 2014

Burning an American flag must be the most cliched protest in the world (yawn). Usually it’s just a silly, little tantrum thrown by fanatical Islamic lunatics who manage to find an old flag, lighter fluid, and a few matches – wow. Rectangular pieces of colored cloth aren’t our country – they’re merely symbols of our country and we have lots of them around.

Whenever I see an American flag burned in protest, I’m a little prouder of America. We have the right to freedom of speech – it’s in our Constitution – and upheld by our Supreme Court. Even burning our own flag is allowed. Try burning your country’s flag in your country, Achmed. Better yet, burn a picture of Allah and see where that gets you.

We know where burning an American flag got Abdullah Ismail of Lahore, Pakistan two years ago.

According to Pakistan’s Express Tribune, Abdullah was jumping around a burning American flag – probably chanting “Death to America” or some such drivel. He inhaled the fumes, got sick, and was rushed to a hospital where he died. The exact cause of death was not released.  Oh well.

I hope Mr. Ismail did not die from sucking down flag fumes. If he had to die, I hope it was Allah slapping him down for being such a boring, unoriginal nitwit in a very dull demonstration.
