Flag Burning and Drawing Muhammad

If someone burns the Flag and people simply acknowledge it and register their disapproval in a normative manner, the protesters have nothing.

If someone burns the Flag and people become outraged and react emotionally and/or violently, the protesters have a victory.

All of this angst and outrage, faux or otherwise, is both counter-intuitive and self defeating.

By being outraged and pretending that you are “American Bad Ass,” you are giving them exactly what they want.

If people ignored them, they’d probably not do it.

The folks who become outraged over flag burnings, stompings and other forms of protest against the United States are similar to those Muslims who act out over Mohammad cartoons and drawings. The difference being that Muslims will actually physically act on their threats whereas the folks of American Badassery will only whine and talk loudly with their chests puffed out.
