Would we be better off if kids pledged allegiance to the Constitution

...instead of the flag?

Maybe:

I pledge allegiance to the Constitution of the United States of America

And to our rights, endowed by our Creator

One nation, united, with liberty and justice for all


Maybe the next generation should focus on what the nation is really about. Not stars and stripes; not Bald Eagles; but the ideal of representative government, freedom, and tolerance.

OK crazy uncle - let me see if I have this right.....

You are outraged. You are outraged because you stand for the anthem to respect our troops. The players taking a knee should be fired; you've lost interest in professional sports; blah, blah, blah. Never mind that we don't play the National Anthem before movies, concerts (well, there was Hendrix at Woodstock), church, etc. By thunder, we are America, and we play before sporting events. To honor the troops and veterans.

Not to honor this (even though our troops all solemnly swear (or affirm) to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; to bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and to obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over them, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice....)



But to honor people like this:



What?? You didn't mean her? OK. I'll skip over that for now.

Now according to your logic, I should not oppose the display of the battle flag of the army of Northern Virginia



or the removal of rebel monuments. Those things are not disrespectful to these guys:



But if I'm understanding you right, the guys that made war on the country flying this flag:



(OK - not that flag. That's actually pretty disrespectful to the flag. Lincoln - go figure?)

Those guys aren't traitors. That's your story - these guys are OK?



...but these guys are bad

?w=525

A monument to this guy is good (even though he founded the Klan)



A monument to this guy is bad (because saying "We declare our right on this earth...to be a human being, to be respected as a human being, to be given the rights of a human being in this society, on this earth, in this day, which we intend to bring into existence by any means necessary." is clearly advocating violence)



These people are disrespectful to law enforcement



These people are just fine



This guy is bad




These guys are great

So in summary: you like a flag that stands for white people, and you prefer actual traitors and a dictator dedicated to the destruction of America over Americans exercising their right to protest that is guaranteed in the Constitution. Do I have that about right?
