Time to fix that hole some of you cut in the fence. You jump sides based on convenience and personal desires and all you are doing is showing your hypocrisy. It’s time to pick a side and stay on it.
We have a group of people, we’ll call them Group A, that hates seeing the flag getting burned, hates the Westboro Baptist people for being allowed to protest at fallen soldiers’ funerals. Group B will be the people that support this and hide behind the Constitution and says “who cares who it offends, it’s our right to do this”.
Now let’s take Quaran burning or drawing pictures of Mohammad. Group A people SUPPORT these things, but Group B people are against it. Media and journalist that are siding with Westboro and hoping the Supreme Court rules in their favor this month will, at the same time, refuse to print a satire cartoon that has the word “Mohammad” in it.
It’s hypocritical from BOTH sides, and it disgusts me greatly.
I am against any freedom that comes at the expense of someone else. I think it should be against the law to burn the flag. I think people that protest any fallen soldier should be put in a barn and beat repeatedly with a cattle prod. Therefore, in order to be fair, I think that things like burning a Quaran or drawing Mohammad should also be off limits.
Maybe we can add a Constitutional amendment that requires Americans to be respectful towards each other and others.
