In response to our video of Jan Schakowsky claiming the parade of lunatics she led last night was “patriotic”–despite a lack of any American flags present–Chicagoist.com author Chuck Sudo suggests that burning the stars and stripes would be just as patriotic as not having one at the march.
From the Chicagoist:
“Last we checked — and we took civics back in eighth grade — an American flag wasn’t a requirement for a march. In fact, the Take Back Chicago protestors could just as easily have burned the Stars and Stripes as not carried one. The person who asks why there’s no American flag at a protest is likely the same person to have an “America: Love it or Leave it” bumper sticker on their Ford Explorer.”
