Heh. In reality, they just use it as another reason to hate the left and feel special.
Witness their reaction to a blogger dinging their beloved Rep. Allen West for taking the flag underwater with him:
ez suddenly discovers legal formalism:
I understand that the Flag Code is a series of suggestions, and not Federal law.Free Vulcan also conflates legality and propriety:
30Moves strikes a blow for freedom!
Burning the flag is OK, but letting it touch water is a crime.
Your elitist double standard in favor of your political stripe Mr. Hendley is exactly why we don’t want you and your kind in charge of this country. There will be two sets of rules: one for you guys and one for anyone who’s not ‘your people’.
I left a comment on the site - Bill Ayers was mentioned.elcid1970 really doesn't like civilian criticism of the military:
“We’ll let you off with a warning, West.”
That’s Lieutenant Colonel West to you, you worthless pencilneck geek! You couldn’t issue a warning to a wombat and you couldn’t lead a f@rt out of a phone booth! And you are not even worthy to shine Lt. Col. West’s uniform shoes.
