Maga and the US flag code.

Saw a house today with a Trump flag flying higher and bigger than the US flag. Disgusting. Thinking of anonymously mailing them a copy of the US Flag code with appropriate passages highlighted. Good idea?

Sure, why not? Having had a father in the US military and growing up spending a lot of time on and around military bases, I share your disgust about this.
@Piper I think all Americans should be upset by that, no matter who they voted for.

They never care about the US and they just want to be in a cult where they can act like entitled degenerate fuckers
@TheBatQueen Of course. And when OP sends the person the letter, they'll ignore it and prove that you were right.

Sorry but you'd be wasting your time, tRump is above [b]ALL[/b] else to these people, they couldn't give a crap about the US Flag Code, tRump matters more... 😵‍💫
@Bill1372 All of Trump's support is emotion based. If people looked at him rationally, they'd reject him.

@LeopoldBloom right. Just copy and paste what I said to you.
@Bill1372 I did and FIFY.

Dont start a fact based argument with Trumpists. The first thing they do is try to lower you to their level and for some thats a very long drop.😷

@whowasthatmaskedman I watched a reporter ask a trump supporter what he would think if Biden called for the termination of all rules, regulations, and articles - even those found in the Constitution. The supporter went on a rant about how Biden is a fascist. Then the reporter showed the supporter one of Trump’s posts were Trump did call for the termination of all rules, regulations, and articles - even those found in the Constitution. The supporter said – oh – well Trump didn’t write that his account was hacked then he went on another rant about how Biden is trying to destroy democracy and how the reporter is part of the fake news. So yeah you can’t use facts on a Trump supporter. Cheers!

Trump has his own flag? It's orange, is it? Doesn't surprise me it's higher than the US flag. They want to tear down everything that constitutes the current US don't they? No pun intended. No interest in reading established journalists established evidence saying all sorts about his threat to their democracy, and from people who know and have worked for him who really know him. If they re-elect him and get what they're asking for I wonder how soon before they start whining and complaining.

@PhilDeep And they dont know they will be the first "investigated". Americans are blisfully unaware just how little real freedom they have, because its wrapped in the flag. Trump did look kinda funny wrapping it around himself like a sarong. But the ignorant masses bought it..Thank goodness the American BS isnt global any more. It stops at the 12 mile limit. (No one else uses miles any more either)😷

angry react for what that person did, not your post..there are truly so many of these so so tired.
Philth · 46-50, M
Agree with all of those comments which highlight the duplicity & awfulness of Trump supporters, but to me the biggest headfuck is that the US has,..... A FLAG CODE? Surely in the land of the free, there's no need to tell people how to fly the flag? The very existence of a flag code speaks much more of a nation, than that there's an inevitable portion of the population who are politically illiterate?

@Philth it was a wartime propaganda thing
@Philth Most countries have rules on how their flag is to be displayed.
Philth · 46-50, M
@spjennifer thanks for explanation, I couldn't tell if your earlier comment was in satire.
DavidT8899 · 22-25, M
While I agree with you that no flag should fly higher than the U.S flag (that's not only the Flag code,it's common sense),I wonder if you would have displayed the same outrage if it had been a flag promoting the Biden Presidency that had been improperly displayed.
trollslayer · 46-50, M
@DavidT8899 I certainly would have had the same outrage. But so far I haven't seen it. With Trump flags, I see it [u]daily[/u].
@DavidT8899 Nope. If you fly another flag above the American flag, it's illegal. It's also gross to me. Either fly the American flag highest, or don't fly it at all.
DavidT8899 · 22-25, M
@LordShadowfire I agree.According to the Flag code,there is only one exception to that rule.
Ducky · 31-35, F
Bet he’s one of those same zealots who preaches about ‘murica too. What a joke!
specman · 51-55, M
Me personally the only two things I fly is the American 🇺🇸 and a USMC banner. I have no signs or anything. I have been considering a Christian flag.
@specman Wow, you're right. I never heard of this. Apparently it was designed in 1897 and has been adopted by many different denominations.
specman · 51-55, M
@LeopoldBloom you seriously haven’t heard of it before?
@specman I had no idea it existed or went back that far.
boudinMan · 61-69, M
freedom pisses you off?
trollslayer · 46-50, M
@boudinMan looks like a stock photo.
boudinMan · 61-69, M
@LordShadowfire and you will continue to wait, cuz you're an pathetic liar.
Okay, folks, you heard it here. @boudinMan doesn't honor his bets.
Bill1372 · 51-55, M
Don’t worry… if the liberal dems have their way we won’t be allowed to fly the American flag soon… Look at Dem. Newsome proudly flying Chinas flag last week.. cleaning up San Fran not for the hardworking taxpayers but for the President of China and admitting it. The weak minded can hardly wait to give him their vote for President
ChadJNSD · 31-35, M
No. There is more momentum for Trump this time, than last two elections. Wouldn’t be surprised if the U.S. flag was changed permanently to Trump flag. Trump 2024! Power to the people’s revolution!

Do it!

If it wouldn't possibly be construed as against the SW terms of service, it's too bad we ALL can't mail them the Flag Code.

It would sure make a hilariously good news story if they complained.
SumKindaMunster · 51-55, M
Don't be a pussy, knock on the door with the Flag code in hand and confront him about it. 😆
RedBaron · M
What difference would it make?
TheBatQueen · 26-30, F
@RedBaron the goal is to show them they are making a mistake but they probably wouldn't give a fuck cuz they can't read
RedBaron · M
@TheBatQueen So again, what difference would it make?
DownTheStreet · 51-55, M
Pretty bad mistake - worse if it’s intentional
Hell yeah. Do it. No self-respecting American would allow that to slide.
