At some point we are no longer correctly referred to as a nation. Maybe you could have said that even though we are divided, we are at least a nation in the sense that we are defined by borders. That might not be true any longer, depending on what happens over the next 8 years. There's a lot at stake here, including people's lives. Not just in the context of wars overseas, but rapidly increasing the refugee program will almost certainly have disastrous results. Look at how worked up those protestors are. They didn't get that way on their own, they've been groomed. Apply that to the refugee program. When you introduce people who are predisposed to being radicalized into a country where one political party is relentlessly teaching them that they're victims who are being disenfranchised by their new host, a host whose culture is despised by some of these people, what do you think is going to happen? At some point you lose the ability to correct the situation because you've let it go too far. Or, you lose the ability to correct it without taking steps that are hard for most to stomach. We aren't there yet, but we are headed in that direction.

The anti-Trump folks need to be careful as the "Trump supporters = Nazis" narrative is going to be hard to maintain. Can't be seen beating on folks, vandalizing shit, etc. and then call your opponents "Nazis" with much credibility.

Pay attention. Recent polls show that 104% of Americans have a favorable view of him.

The ant-Trump protesters aren't very good with handling their message other than "fuck Trump and his supporters". It's just feeding into his rhetoric about having to "save America" from itself.

Well, pounding on people, vandalizing cars, burning shit in the street...not much of a "message" per se.

Gotta say this is not a good look for American democracy, from either side. When was the last election with this much anger, 1968?

Have no worries as all the violence will be Trump's fault.

Since I was occupied with other matters during the '68 cycle i don't have any direct experience but my perceptions from that period were that the anger was more directed toward the established status quo and much less toward the individual supporters. But then again that was 50 years ago

That dumb bitch will be very vocal when she gets arrested for burning the flag. Her insolent mind does not know that this has been made illegal in our holly democracy.

These protests in CA have distinct anti-American flavor and remind me of muslim protest in London , where unwashed-looking 3rd worlders declare that England is part of Caliphate in the same vein these Mexicans declaring CA theirs. Make no mistake this is about we were here first , hence Mexican flags and references to native land in their signs. Media does not want to talk about it either.

Why would someone be arrested for burning an American flag?  It is a Constitutionally protected form of speech.

post #3146 of 8748

Because its something to wrap yourself in as the need suits??

So is Cornell's information outdated? https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/18/700

18 U.S. Code § 700 - Desecration of the flag of the United States; penalties
Current through Pub. L. 114-19. (See Public Laws for the current Congress.)
US Code
(a) (1) Whoever knowingly mutilates, defaces, physically defiles, burns, maintains on the floor or ground, or tramples upon any flag of the United States shall be fined under this title or imprisoned for not more than one year, or both.
(2) This subsection does not prohibit any conduct consisting of the disposal of a flag when it has become worn or soiled.
(b) As used in this section, the term “flag of the United States” means any flag of the United States, or any part thereof, made of any substance, of any size, in a form that is commonly displayed.
(c) Nothing in this section shall be construed as indicating an intent on the part of Congress to deprive any State, territory, possession, or the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico of jurisdiction over any offense over which it would have jurisdiction in the absence of this section.
(d)
(1) An appeal may be taken directly to the Supreme Court of the United States from any interlocutory or final judgment, decree, or order issued by a United States district court ruling upon the constitutionality of subsection (a).
(2) The Supreme Court shall, if it has not previously ruled on the question, accept jurisdiction over the appeal and advance on the docket and expedite to the greatest extent possible.

Compilation video with dramatic music, but there is some new footage in this one of them chasing a policeman off and an old man at the end of the video with a bloodied face.

This stuff will not stop leading up to November. This is not only going to change a lot of opinions on the wall, but deportation in general. The visuals of hispanics ganging up on all these white people while waving the American flag around and destroying property are just too powerful. Any normal person's reaction should be anger. Between now and November this will keep happening and it's very likely there will be a terror attack in the US and/or Europe. He's going to win the election by a landslide.

It's just wild to think that less than a year ago Trump began talking about immigration when no one else had it as a major part of their platform and now we have periodic riots over it.

That's the 1968 law that was rendered unconstitutional by United States vs Eichman, which upheld Texas v. Johnson. So yes, it's outdated.


Flag burning is constitutionally protected speech.

You know it's entirely possible that a lot of those Hispanics are American citizens, right?

Ok Nostradamus.


There's no chance Trump wins in a "landslide" unless Hillary get indicted. The demographic advantage is just too big for the Democrats to allow a landslide under almost any circumstances.
