Reno’s Rant: Flag Burning

Seems like there have been a lot of heated debates around the country about people burning the flag in protest and what should be done with them. Some think those who burn the flag in protest should be put in jail, others say they should have their citizenship revoked. First off I think those who burn the flag in protest are idiots and, in burning the flag, are turning people away from understanding the cause they’re so passionate about.

What should be done about these protesters desecrating a symbol of our nation and our freedoms? I don’t know….that’s not for me to decide. All I can say is that, in America, we love our symbols, our iconography and our idols. The danger is putting more weight in the symbol than what it stands for….

Until next time….Cheers,
