As a form of protest.
That fact that you can burn the American Flag is one reason why America is better than a lot of other countries. If I had a particular reason to, of course I would.
I consider it everyday. We need to defend free speech by being offensive sometimes. I say draw muhhamed, burn flags, defecate on the bible. People need to respect free speech even when it angers them, and they clearly need to have Thor hypocracey thrown in their face as well as be desensitized to dissenting views.
Its America, why not.
I don't particularly respect or lack respect for the American flag. If I was cold, and an American flag was nearby, I'd have no qualms with setting it alight for warmth. I doubt it would be though, since I live in New Zealand.
I like to show disrespect to other nations values and traditions. That is why me and my friends organize bonfires in which we burn flags of countries around the world. Burning the American flag shows disrespect to their culture of Shooting and Fat.
If someone was like, "Burn this flag or your family dies." I would burn the flag.
It's just a flag that represents our nation. And if our nation is doing something wrong then if i want to i would burn the american flag.
as a form of protest yes
It is legal, so why not?
If i thought it was fun; yeah, i would do it. I would burn any flag or book. Except if they're rare historical items or the property of someone who doesn't want me to.
Aside from the fact that I don't find such an act appealing, what would I gain by doing such a thing. Unless your purpose is to deliberately piss people off (in which case your a troll), otherwise it won't effect anything.
It's the flag that all the military that has fought for my freedom serve in under and I value my freedom and would never disrespect the ones that fought and the one that gave their life's for my freedom! Anyone that would burn the American Flag should find another country to live in! When you have no respect for the Flag that represents the country you live in pack you belongings and leave!
I myself wouldn't, but isn't the proper way to dispose of a ruined/tattered American flag to burn it anyways?
To do so should be considered treason.
No, That flag means something to me and many others and to burn it is appalling, if I were to protest and defend free speech I would do so by attending and organizing a rally, not making inflammatory symbolic gestures that are bound to piss off those who sacrificed for the country.
