DONALD TRUMP IS RIGHT: FLAG BURNING SHOULD BE LABELED A CRIME!

Tell Congress:
Renew And Pass The
FLAG PROTECTION ACT!

President-elect Donald Trump ignited a firestorm when he suggested last week that burning an American flag should be treated as a criminal act.

We are calling on Congress to do just that - by renewing and this time PASSING the Flag Protection Act which was last proposed in 2005. Burning a flag is done to provoke immediate violence and breach the peace, similar to terrorism, and therefore it should not be protected as "speech!"

Tell Congress that you support the Flag Protection Act and that you expect a vote on this vitally important and patriotic issue!

Flag burning was illegal in every state in 1932. In 1989, the Supreme Court ruled in the Texas vs. Johnson case that flag burning is protected "speech".

The Flag Protection Act of 2005 was written by Senator Bob Bennett (R-UT) and co-sponsored by none other than Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-NY).

Read a copy of the Flag Protection Act HERE.

The act calls for a penalty of up to $100,000 and a year in prison for desecrating a flag with the intent to provoke immediate violence and thereby breach the peace; or, for burning the flag with the intent to intimidate or threaten any person or group.

Flags were even a symbol of pride, patriotism, love of country and love of family in the Bible. Every tribe in Israel had its own unique standard.

Psalm 20:5 reads, "We will sing for joy over your victory, And in the name of our God we will set up our banners (FLAGS). May the LORD fulfill all your petitions."

Flag desecration is an insult to every American veteran and patriot, and it is tantamount to terrorism when you see the anarchists and communists who engage in it.

The Supreme Court ruled that flag desecration is "free speech" in 1989. So what?

Throughout history whenever the Supreme Court makes a stupid decision, Congress has rewritten and tweaked laws and passed them again, in order to keep the court in check when it makes a dumb ruling.

That is what we are trying to do by demanding passage of the Flag Protection Act.

Dear Chairman Meadows:

President-elect Donald Trump recently suggested that flag burning should carry a criminal penalty. Because this idea is supported by a majority of Americans, I am writing to you to urge you to resubmit the Flag Protection Act of 2005 and pass it. This wonderful bill was written by former Sen. Bob Bennett of Utah and co-sponsored by Senator Hillary Clinton of New York. It was designated as S. 1911 when it was introduced in 2005.

Flag desecration was illegal in every state in America by 1932. It was only in 1989 that the Supreme Court issued a misguided ruling that flag desecration should somehow be protected as "speech." This was a foolish decision and it is your duty as a Member of Congress to keep the other two branches of government in check, including the Supreme Court. This is exactly what the Flag Protection Act was written to do - to overturn the 1989 decision.

The Flag Protection Act provides penalties of a year in jail and up to a $100,000 fine for desecrating an American flag. The penalties are even more severe for desecrating a flag owned by the US government. I believe this is an appropriate punishment, especially since flag burning is a fringe act carried out by paid activists for the express purpose of provoking immediate violence and breaching the peace. The bill also provides penalties for burning the flag with the intent to intimidate or threaten any person or group. You might want to consider an amendment to the Act to strip away a flag-burners citizenship, suggested by President-elect Trump.

Please sponsor and resubmit the Flag Protection Act immediately. A majority of Americans are deeply offended by the actions of the tiny fringe that wants to pretend that flag desecration is "speech." Patriotism and love of flag and country still beats in the hearts of the people and you have a duty to respect that and fight for it. So pass the Flag Protection Act today!
