29 Members of Congress: Freedom for Paris, but Not for America

This month, the number of members of Congress supporting a constitutional amendment to ban the burning of American flags as an act of political protest rises to 29. The following are sponsors or cosponsors of the bill, H.J. Res. 9:

Rep. Abraham, Ralph Lee [R-LA-5] Rep. Amodei, Mark E. [R-NV-2] Rep. Ashford, Brad [D-NE-2] Rep. […]

South Portland tells Students to Celebrate Freedom through Coercion and Silence

What did you learn in school today?

Brad Rogers writes in the Bangor Daily News about a simple choice by high school seniors in South Portland.  The senior class President of South Portland high school noticed that teachers were harassing students who chose not to say the Pledge of Allegiance, so she looked up state law, […]

7 Reasons to Distrust Patriotic Snowmen

This week I received an odd piece of mail — one of those solicitations asking for a donation to some cause while providing a small, token gift. That strategy came from social science research indicating that the provision of a small gift leads to the feeling of obligation, which in turn leads to a higher […]

This week, U.S. Representatives Hakeem Jeffries and Ted Poe introduced H.R. 3713, a bill that would allow the U.S. federal government to place trademark registration protections on the American flag.

If the government claimed ownership over the trademark rights to the flag, they could require permission, and perhaps the payment of a fee, for anyone […]

Flag “Defenders”: Is this a Desecration?

This morning, while breaking up camp on Mount Desert Island, I noticed that someone had placed a small polyester American flag next to a water spigot. In the course of regular use, the water spigot had hit the soil, kicked up some of that soil, and in the process placed dirt on the American flag. […]

“It could be from our own country,” I said.

Jon Tester Wants To Put The American Flag In A Cage

Across the USA, American flags are flying, unprotected.

The thought gives me shivers. What could happen to all those flags, and what would happen to the United States of America if it didn’t have those flags? It would be a disaster, a catastrophe. It would be worse than Godzilla tromping all over Dallas. Babies would […]

Conservative Media and Blogosphere to Nail Romney on Flag Pin Issue… any day now…

When Barack Obama failed to wear a lapel pin during the 2008 presidential race, FOX News went ape over it:

The conservative blogosphere couldn’t stop talking about it for months. Flag pin, flag pin, flag pin, flag pin, flag pin.

So surely Michelle Malkin, Pamela Gellar, FOX News and the gang will be rolling […]

The Irrational Racism Of Theodore Roosevelt

It’s not just current politicians who have spoken in code to appeal to sentiments favored by the KKK. Theodore Roosevelt used the meme of One Country One Flag One Language so habitually that he eventually began to roll the ideas out automatically without realizing the absurd inconsistency of demanding loyalty against foreigners while insisting on the use of a language of foreign origin.
