Now, Section 700 of Title 18, the U.S. Criminal Codes, applies to desecration of the ‘United States Flag’, with some vague language about physical abuse. And 47 States still have laws on the books about desecration of their State Flags.
If I were a Southern Gentleman, I would lobby my State Legislature to pass a State Law making use and display of the Confederate Flag by Hate Groups (Neo-Nazis, Anti-Blacks, Anti-Gay, Anti-Jew, Etc.) in any of their marches, rallies, gatherings, store-fronts, etc. a crime punishable by fines, imprisonment, or both. Why let them ‘hide behind’ the Confederate Flag?
And, PLEASE South Carolina, and other Southern States and communities–when the Stars And Stripes are lowered to half mast, you LOWER THE STARS AND BARS TOO!
And let all the goddamn Nazi Groups use the Swastika Flag, instead of hiding behind the Confederate and U.S. Flags. SO EVERYONE WILL KNOW WHAT THEY’RE ALL ABOUT!
What do you folks think?
