That we should protect our flag, if other people get in trouble for burning the pride flag then they should get into more trouble for burning our own flag that represents our freedom.

 @9F9NYZV from Washington agreed…2wks2W

The only reason someone should burn the flag is to retire it after it has started to show wear and tear.

 @9F7FCY2 from Arizona disagreed…2wks2W

It doesn't hurt anyone and is an exercise of one's ability to express oneself. If it's their property, there is no crime.

 @9F5YSR7 from Wisconsin disagreed…2wks2W

Nobody should ever burn the flag because this is very disrespectful to the people who have died and the people still living who fought for our country and the flag.

 @9F7FCY2 from Arizona agreed…2wks2W

Flag burning is an exercise of free speech. To not allow people to show their beliefs is oppressive and any act that doesn't hurt others, while it may not benefit society as a whole, should not be criminalized.

 @Unanim0usCheetahAmerican Solidarity from Pennsylvania disagreed…2wks2W

While it's true that flag burning can be viewed as a form of free speech, it's also important to consider the symbolic value of a national flag. For many, it represents the struggles, sacrifices and unity of a nation. Burning it could be seen as a deeply disrespectful act, not just to the government, but also to the people and history it represents.

Take for example the case of 'Texas v. Johnson' in 1989. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled that flag burning was a form of "symbolic speech", but it was a highly contentious 5-4 decision. One could argue the narrow margin of this ruling reflects the…  Read more

I think it is one of the most basic right to burn USA flag. United States of America is a country which base on huge unjustice. Like Russia it is dangerous imperialist aggressor with strict hypocrisy.

No, I don’t respect anyone who does but they should have the right to do so

 @ISIDEWITHDiscuss this answer...7yrs7Y

Yes, and it should be illegal to burn any nation’s flag

 @ISIDEWITHDiscuss this answer...7yrs7Y

No, it’s just a piece of cloth that doesn’t represent what it should

 @JuanR disagreed…2wks2W

I think it is disrespectful to those those who fought for this country and are fighting for this country right now

 @9FF84MWPeace and Freedom from Indiana agreed…1wk1W

Burning the flag is more than making a statement. It is the utter disrespect and disregard to those who have fought to raise that flag. When you burn the American flag, it shows that you only want to make a statement because there are so many other things you could do to show dissatisfaction. Burning the flag disgraces the whole country, not just what ever political statement you argue over.

 @9FD6DJJRepublican from Pennsylvania disagreed…1wk1W

it symbolizes the country that we all live in, whether or not its run the way you want it to doesn't give you the right to destroy the symbol of the country you live in

 @9FBR43S from Pennsylvania disagreed…2wks2W

There are many people who have fought and died for that flag. That flag represents blood, sweat, tears that many have shed for that flag. It would be a dishonor to those who have fought to burn the flag.

 @9F9NYZV from Washington disagreed…2wks2W

Our founding fathers created that symbol you call a piece of cloth to unite against an unjust ruler so you can sit at home and watch whatever or go to church on Sundays

 @cryingleftist from Texas answered…3yrs3Y

No, flag code states that once a flag is no longer fit for use burning it is the most respectful way to dispose of it.

  @VulcanMan6  from Kansas commented…3wks3W


 @BoredImpeachmentIndependent from Illinois agreed…3wks3W

Indeed, protests are a crucial part of democratic societies. Burning the flag can be seen as a powerful form of protest—just think back to the Vietnam War era when it was a common practice among anti-war demonstrators. Would you agree that such expressive acts should be protected under the right to free speech?

I would like people to not do it but that is their right to freedom of speech. It is like if i wanted to burn one of their lgbtq+ flags that is my freedom of speech.

No, this is a violation of free speech, if someone feels the need to burn the flag for whatever reason they should be allowed to. Despite it not being respectful it should not be illegal

I think everyone has a reason to do so. I don't agree with the action but you also have to respect the way someone feels.

 @95DMHHTRepublican from Florida answered…1yr1Y
