Trump Threatens Flag-Burning Americans With Loss Of Citizenship Or Jail

(Before It's News)

With snowflakes everywhere across America seemingly content to burn the Stars & Stripes to protest democracy’s decision to elect what they have been told is a racist, homophobic, anti-semitic, sexist, tax-fraud as president…

President-elect Donald Trump has put his foot down in this seemingly most unpatriotic of endeavors…

All of which seems quite fair.

And before the liberal media gets hold of this tweet and claims Trump’s fascist tyranny is peaking through against constitutionally protected rights to do whatever a citizen wants, don’t forget that none other than the messiah herself – Hillary Clinton – sposnored exactly these punishments in The Flag Protection Act of 2005…

The Flag Protection Act of 2005 was a proposed United States federal law introduced by Senators Hillary Clinton and Robert Bennett. The law would have outlawed flag burning, and called for a punishment of one year in jail and a fine of $100,000. According to the nonpartisan Congressional Research Service, the act was summarized as such:

Amends the federal criminal code to revise provisions regarding desecration of the flag to prohibit: (1) destroying or damaging a U.S. flag with the primary purpose and intent to incite or produce imminent violence or a breach of the peace; or (2) stealing or knowingly converting the use of a U.S. flag either belonging to the United States or on lands reserved for the United States and intentionally destroying or damaging that flag.

    openly bringing a thought, grievance, or discussion on ones twitter account does not equal THREATENING American’s as this title implies. Until 1969 it was in fact ILLEGAL, many still alive today including Trump were blessed to have lived thru an era where civics and respect towards country were NORMAL, expected behaviors. these were taught in school, at home, and in the churches. They were to be commended and admired traits.

    While I agree with Trumps views on this subject. I do wish that he would soften his approach to “triggering” subjects. So many Americans are now very SENSITIVE, prickly, and agitated due to a lifetime of brainwashing at liberal / communist minded based schools, and through government manipulated Main Stream Media sources.

    not everyone is as “based” as he with being “WOKE” to the real world.

    Baby steps I suppose would be my advice to him…

    Maybe one post to show 1969 where law changes via US Supreme court

    next post to share how many Americans felt violated by that new law

    Next post to show where the country went wild due to never knowing respect or knowing previous laws

    Next post to share maybe old laws were better?

    Next post showing him hugging flag

    you get the idea.

    So many already have a preconceived negative view of him, anything he posts is triggering to them.

    Those of us who know his style appreciate his honest straightforward approach.
