American Flag In Phoenix

This photo was taken at a rally at the state capitol in Phoenix , AZ yesterday and sent to me. The news media will not show it. The Capitol Police and Homeland Security would not let Americans or veterans there do anything about it. 
Her husband and his friends were threatened with arrest and told they would be under federal arrest if they did anything. It is an abomination and totally uncalled for.  Every American needs to see it.
This is not about politics and rhetoric, it is about a direct threat to our country. Those of you that don't live in Arizona now have a chance to see what the main stream news is NOT telling you. If this offends you great, than I have truly accomplished what I set out to do.

I understand that sometimes we American's don't see eye to eye on certain things.  That is one of the rights our forefathers fought for. I, for one, am a proud American. Wake Up!  This is NOT okay!!!  This should never fall under the heading of "Tolerance!"
I am not a racist, extremist or bigot and I am not a Nazi.  This kind of thing has nothing to do with race, it has to do with respect to the country that is continually taking you in (buying your vote) by giving you free medical care, food stamps, etc. We, the people, will not turn a blind eye to your agenda.  Our government, as it is today, maybe.

Homeland Security was designed to identify and defend America from Terrorist acts yet yesterday it let illegal and legal citizens of this country desecrate the Flag.  People were spitting on it, stomping on it and burning it with cigarettes. One soldier who had just returned from Iraq tried to grab the flag and was thrown to the ground by the Capitol Police and Homeland Security!!!  He had just fought with his very life for the country you liberals and moderates seem to take for granted or hate!

It amazes me how many people will stand against the American people while they are prospering from our system and our government. How long can America stand by and allow, defend and or promote this? (Obama sues Arizona!)

To those of you that will forward this Blog to your friends, I applaud you for the courage to stand up for the country in which you live.

To those of you who don't, there is always someplace else for you to go.

Flag Rules of Etiquette, U.S. Flag Code

I agree that it is discussing and totally UN-AMERICAN behavior, but no, no jail. Americans fight and die for free speech, it’s just very sad and a sign of the times when citizens (or non-citizens) hate the United States of America…especially when they break the immigration laws to get in.
Go figure

The American Legion has been promoting flag etiquette since its founding in 1919. The Veterans of Foreign Wars has long advocated proper respect for the flag. In 1942, the Flag Code was established by Congress. It has been periodically updated.
Adoption of State Flag Desecration Statutes — By the late 1800's an organized flag protection movement was born in reaction to perceived commercial and political misuse of the flag. After supporters failed to obtain federal legislation, Illinois, Pennsylvania, and South Dakota became the first States to adopt flag desecration statutes. By 1932, all of the States had adopted flag desecration laws.
In general, these State laws outlawed:
i. placing any kind of marking on the flag, whether for commercial, political, or other purposes;
ii. using the flag in any form of advertising; and
iii. publicly mutilating, trampling, defacing, defiling, defying or casting contempt, either by words or by act, upon the flag.
Under the model flag desecration law, the term "flag" was defined to include any flag, standard, ensign, or color, or any representation of such made of any substance whatsoever and of any size that evidently purported to be said flag or a picture or representation thereof, upon which shall be shown the colors, the stars and stripes in any number, or by which the person seeing the same without deliberation may believe the same to represent the flag of the U.S.

Thank you!
I take back my earlier statement and correct my error, they should be jailed!

"Strangers are welcome because there is room enough for them all, and therefore the old inhabitants are not jealous of them; the laws protect them sufficiently so that they have no need of the patronage of great men; and every one will enjoy securely the profits of his Industry. But if he does not bring a fortune with him, he must work and be industrious to live." --Benjamin Franklin, Those Who Would Remove to America, 1784
