The hypocrisy of charging that the American flag has been desecrated

January 17, 2009 | By | Reply More

You hear many conservatives yelping about “flag desecration,” as though the torture of hundreds of prisoners conducted by the U.S. is not flag desecration.

Here is a post pointing out further hypocrisy, expecially the cherry-picking done by conservatives.   The  sections of U.S. Code cited by this article suggest that even those many candidates who decided to “wear” the image of a U.S. flag in the form of a flag pin (remember the controversy?) were disrespecting the flag.
