Tim Anderson To Be Placed On IL With Groin Injury

Fever, the descent into flag-worship in this country is not only idolatrous, but it’s also a tool of indoctrination that’s being employed to a level of absurdity.

After 9/11, no politician dared be seen in public without a cheap flag pin on his lapel (probably made in China).

Politicians of both parties compete to have the most flags onstage behind them at public appearances, as if more flags means you’re more patriotic. It’s performance art and it’s idiotic.

Do you know there’s a flag code in U.S. law that’s routinely violated?

4 U.S. Code § 8 – Respect for flag

“(b)The flag should never touch anything beneath it, such as the ground, the floor, water, or merchandise.

“(c)The flag should never be carried flat or horizontally, but always aloft and free.”

“Should never touch . . . the ground. Should never be carried flat or horizontally”

You’ve never seen a gigantic American flag stretched out horizontally across a playing field in a baseball or football stadium, clearly touching the ground? I have, many times.

“(g)The flag should never have placed upon it, nor on any part of it, nor attached to it any mark, insignia, letter, word, figure, design, picture, or drawing of any nature.”

Have you never seen “Trump flags” with his name and/or his seditious mug illegally pasted over the Stars and Stripes? If not, here you go:

Violations of law, every one.

This is from Section (j) of the code:

“The flag represents a living country and is itself considered a living thing. Therefore, the lapel flag pin being a replica, should be worn on the left lapel near the heart.”

The flag is a living thing. This is nuts. This is textbook idolatry:

Their idols are silver and gold,
the work of human hands.
They have mouths, but do not speak;
eyes, but do not see.
They have ears, but do not hear;
noses, but do not smell.
They have hands, but do not feel;
feet, but do not walk;
and they do not make a sound in their throat.
Those who make them become like them;
so do all who trust in them.

– from Psalm 115

The ancient pagans treated their idols as living things too, and the psalmist mocked them.

In their efforts to advertise their super-patriotism, flag-worshippers in this country routinely violate the law codifying respect for the flag. And then they bleat about “law & order.”

A citizen who cares enough about his country to challenge the government when it acts badly or fails to act for the common good is immeasurably more patriotic than a citizen with a “my country, right or wrong” attitude who shows his “loyalty” by bashing critics while he blithely watches his country go to hell.
