    Your matter of opinion & taste doesn't matter....

    This goes out to all the Americans out there who get outraged over certain actions that happen in this country of ours. Take a good look at the image below. If one side of images upsets you while the other ones don't, there's a problem and you're probably part of it. One of the groups of images is illegal and it is spelled out in the Constitution that it is illegal. The other set of images are actually not only protected under the Constitution but when challenged in the Supreme Court, the SCOTUS ruled that it was PROTECTED BY the Constitution. You may be thinking the one you don't agree with is the one that's illegal and the ones you find fine are the ones protected but you may be completely wrong in your assumption. Educate yourself on what is permitted by our laws before you open your mouth. (Same applies to people who talk about censorship, the First Amendment, and other bullshit in terms of Facebook/Twitter/YouTube/etc etc etc).

    not only is it completely protected per the constitution, it's actually the proper way of retiring one.

    Technically aren't you supposed to cut it up into strips before burning it?

    What if I'm not offended by either side?

    Bunch of refreshes, no image. The hidden link takes to a site that has...no showing image either. So, I'm forced to conclude we're talking about the Sylvanus signature picture, as it's the only visible one. Yes, fanboying genocidal maniac is legal as long as one doesn't go further than that. The question is, what's the illegal part of the picture?

    I'm not sure either is particularly offensive either. It's a piece of cloth for crying out loud.

    I think the issue is on your end because I have posted using postimages.org and had no issues with people seeing them. The direct link to the image is hosted at a i.postimg.cc place. But seeing as you were able to see Orange's imgur link and commented on the image I posted, its not that one is particularly offensive. Its pointing out that there are certain people who find one set of those images "highly offensive and disrespectful" when the reality is it is protected by the Constitution while the other set of images is clearly outlined in the same Constitution as being illegal.

    I have never felt strongly either way about flags. Flags are a symbol. That's all. Flag burning is protected under freedom of expression, but I believe even defacing a flag or adding your own custom art to it is just fine as well. The only thing that bothers me is when people get their panties in a twist over what others do with a flag. Only hyper nationalist douchebags get triggered when a flag is burned or "disrespected" with kneeling. It's a fucking flag. Get over it.

    Also, I fully imagine that all of those Republicans who were screaming their heads off about flag disrespect with kneeling and shiz will now begin desecrating flags under Biden, with no hint of irony.

    Sadly, a "NO U" style defense is exactly what I'd expect from this flopic.

    I just want to let you know that I applaud your use of "flopic." If you didn't invent it, I'm going to assume you did.

    I did not, in all honesty. It's a relic from the old War on Terror off-topic board at Gamefaqs. If anyone knows about boards like LUE (Life, the Universe, and Everything), WoT was sort of its little, handicapped brother.

    It was sort of similar to Gen Off-topic, but with fewer European nationalists and fewer Scandinavians disapproving and telling everyone how they do everything better.

    So yeah, feel free to adopt it. Lord knows there's plenty of threads around here that fit the criteria.

    To be honest what the majority agrees on matters. If enough people believe you should be jailed for it you will be jailed for it.

    I always find it odd that people think laws are eternal and unchanging.

    Yeah...this is exactly what constitutional rights are for though. Just think about all of the dreadful things that 'the majority' has agreed on.
