This whole thing is absurd.

What the fuck does wearing a pin have to fucking do with being a patriot?!

It's all fucking nonsense. Does wearing a pin magically make you not NWO cocksucking piece of shit?

Get it together GLP tards. Fuck.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1697464



On top of that, the 'flying' of the flag on everything from buses and backhoes to lapels didn't start until after 9/11. Flag waving/display is closer aligned to nazi germany fascism than the current admin is to socialism...although I agree we are sliding into socialism economically, it has nothing to do with how/where/when the flag is displayed.

The first thing I noticed after moving cities not long after 9/11 is how the flag suddenly showed up everywhere...particularly I found it offensive on city buses, being public transportation.

Young enough to miss the point I think. Might be worthwhile to do a bit of research into what our flag means, what it stands for. And why so many others around the world love to replace ours with theirs - and then burn ours. Then maybe consider what the flag they replace ours with means to them - their ideals, their intent, and their current state of affairs.

You might start to get the picture.

YESTERDAY THE BRASS AT ABC NEWS ISSUED ORDERS FORBIDING REPORTERS TO WEAR LAPEL PIN OF AMERICAN FLAGS OR OTHER PATRIOTIC INSIGNIA. THEIR REASONING WAS THAT ABC SHOULD REMAIN NEUTRAL ABOUT 'CAUSES'.
 Quoting: SaveUSa


Makes perfect sense to me. Fuck patriotism. For any country.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 25213002


This isn't surprising coming from a German. Patriotism didn't work out to well for you guys.

For the rest of us that don't want to get rid of countries and borders and who don't buy into the citizen of world/world communism BS, please let us have the right to show patriotism if we so choose.
 Quoting: l3ol3o


I agree with this, however, ABC is a private company and we should respect their decision and not call it unpatriotic. Otherwise, we denote ourselves to a myopic symbol rather than connote ourselves to a broad patriotism. Let us agree with those who disagree and vice versa!

Well, Obama quit wearing the US Flag pin long ago. And America didn't give a damn then and they aren' t going to give a damn now when ABC does it.
Americans have gained weight and lost their backbone.
Maybe they will wake up when there are Tanks patrolling the Main Street in their town.

There is no two ways about it! I can't say it nicer! You who believe otherwise are imbecile fuckers. You fuck imbeciles and breed and they come into power in your isolated civilizations and fuck some more! Stop fucking! We want peace!

You don't because you fuck too many of your cousins! Stop fucking your cousins! I'm sorry to be bringing this upon you so soon, but I want peace as you don't. Don't tell me you do, because it is clear you want to dunk these muzzie mother suckers into a glassy grave. You and I don't think alike. We're not the same. Give war up and live in peace. It's the only way. I see it..you don't see it because you haven't done the research...it's not my fault...I say if you want war...go to war and leave me the fuck out of it..otherwise you're a coward S.O.B. that will send someone in your stead.

Everyone was bitching when all the reporters were wearing flag pins after 9/11, saying they were too immersed in blind patriotism to do real reporting and question things that happened. Now a station bans the flag pins, and everyone is still bitching. Journalists should not be wearing American flag pins. You can't even call yourself a journalist with a straight face when you're wearing a fucking pin with the fucking American flag on it. It has nothing to do with socialism or patriotism or Obama. It has to do with journalism. If you're wearing a pin with a nation's flag on it, you're no journalist.

Where in the Constitution does it say Americans are required to display a flag lapel pin?

If one doesn't display a flag lapel pin, does this mean the person isn't "patriotic"?


What is you definition of patriotism?

Suppose your definition isn't my definition? Does that mean I am unpatriotic?

Do you think this might be a little bit like displaying a national socialist german worker's party pin ?

Yes, I disagree with banning any form of free speech, who wouldn't?

Being an atheist, relative to believing in a God, I don't think that it's right to separate church and state, necessarily.

I believe that states have the right to socialism. I believe states have the right to theocracy.

Why wouldn't they have that right? Who are we to tell others how to behave? We can only lead by example in an absolutely free society, correct?

Our country was not based on separation of church and state no matter how we try to slice it. That was developed from Roger Williams view, you know the guy that settled Rhode Island?

I don't know, I suppose I'm trying to correct some false beliefs that my generation holds dear...such as the false belief in separation of church and state. You want to change that? Take majority of the state. Otherwise, your argument will remain moot. The bill of rights apply to the states en toto? Why should they unless you are for your beliefs triumphing over the will of the people. What does that make you? A tyrant! Let people have their simple beliefs, where is it hurting? Oh that's where? Then let it be brought up in that case! We're free now. Act like it.
