Whatever. Anarchist shit heads burning an American flag. Muslim shit heads burning an American flag. What difference?

When anarchists burn an american flag it is most likely from an internal problem they are having with what the flag is representing or what that representation has done to them or their ideas. Anarchists believe in full intellectual freedom which has been under heavy attack over the recent years. I doubt many anarchists from Europe or other places outside the US bother burning american flags. When muslims burn a flag it is more likely from external problems they have with what the flag represents. Muslims in other countries are greatly affected by US foreign policy and by burning an american flag they can express their distaste for those policies or actions that have occurred. Did you ever think that maybe some of those muslims you see burning a flag had their homes destroyed by US bombs. Or maybe their jobs were taken away by US occupation of their country? Shit man some of them might have lost children or parents or aunts and uncles and grandparents. Its not always about pure nonsensical hatred. Sometimes their hatred is well thought out and is based off of the reality of their situation.

I can't disagree. As for what anarchists believe I could not care less. If they feel better burning our flag then let them. It only marginalizes them.

No, but I think you should move to Alabama and practice burning the stars and bars.

That should cure your meth habit.

The flag burning in Oakland did not offend me. As I understand it, the act came after the severe police actions. The flag-burning followed the police brutality ---- the police did not brutally act because of the flag burning.
