Nah, it’s pretty objective actually.

Thinking a flag automatically deserves respect is nothing more than blind patriotism. And blind patriotism never ends well.


#1315

That is not what your last post was about and you know it.


#1316

It was exactly about it, actually.

Funny that “the flag deserves respect” seems like a objective thing to many of you, further proving my point about blind patriotism.


#1317

no no no. We were talking about this.


#1318

It is indeed a shitty country that has done plenty of shitty things to the world. What about it?


#1319

Just curious what is your idea of a non shitty country?

Just wanna know your basic scale of shitty to non shitty


#1320

If he is logically consistent, one does not exist.


#1321

That’s a subjective point of view.


#1322

“Blind respect” are you serious right now??

Look, I’m not saying America is perfect dude, because it certainly isn’t. But please tell me… What country is??

The fact of the matter is. There is just some shit you shouldn’t do, whether you have the “freedom” to do so or not. I am well aware the flag (any flag) is just “a piece of cloth” I’m not saying respect “cloth” I’m saying you should respect what it represent.

Just show respect, damn, its common curtesy. And it’s funny, the people who are saying it’s just a piece of cloth, I guarantee if it were a “gay” flag somebody burned or pissed on etc… you’d be calling them homophobic… Why? It’s just cloth :roll_eyes: Double standard, much? Or better yet, if Donald Trump did it haha boy… LOOK OUT!!


#1323

It represents the right to burn the flag if you want to.


#1324

Trump thinks people should have their citizenship revoked for flag burning and go to jail for a year.


#1325

Haha fine, but again, is it the LAW right now?

And okay, fine… it’s your “freedom” to burn the flag (if you really are that big of a jackass to do so)

So… if I were to burn a “gay” or “BLM” flag… would you call me homophobic or racist? Because honestly, I think you may…


#1326

#1327

Why would you respect it when it hasn’t earned the respect to begin with.

Stop fantasizinhg and putting imaginary values on a piece of cloth that has failed to represent what you think it represents for fucking ages.


#1328

No…that is a legitimate question man…
What, cat got your tongue because you know I’m right??


#1329

Nah, your comparison is pretty terrible and it makes no sense whatsoever. Patriotism really blinds people, as I said.

But sure, continue to pretend that having criticisms about a flawed country is the same as being homophobic. That makes complete sense.


#1330

But… but… it’s only cloth, man…

And I’m not blind with anything dude. I just know how to act my age and put my big boy pants on.

Like I said just because it ain’t illegal doesn’t mean you should do it. That’s my point.


#1331

How many drones strikes, war crimes and slavery were made under the LGBT flag? I’m waiting.


#1332

Oh I see where you are going with this.

Is it time to weigh the sins of each nation. I hope you have a large scale.
