okay what the fuck

listen there are some symbols that are incredibly serious business okay i will give you that. There are some symbols that are to be respected and honoured in all ways and with ceremonies and dignity because they are important.

but a flag? a flag? a flag that every single person old enough to point and say ’look’ can get their hands on? that is not a symbol that needs a ritual sacrifice every time it gets some dust on it

no. no. america why

This is really hypocritical. Because the thing is you’re not supposed to wear anything with the flag, or use it for displays unless it’s on a pole, according to the Flag Code.
Here’s the quote (got it from Wikipedia):
The flag should not be used as “wearing apparel, bedding, or drapery”, or for covering a speaker’s desk, draping a platform, or for any decoration in general (exception for coffins).
According to the Flag Code, you should never wear anything with the flag, nor use it as a decoration unless it’s on a pole or a coffin. No lapel pins, no bathing suits, no hanging the flag on podiums. No. Stop.

oh gosh
