Air Force veteran Michelle Manhart refused to stand idly by and watch a group of “protesters” walk on the flag she helped defend.
Over the years there have been times where uneducated, entitled groups of people protest their grievances by desecrating the flag. As though this act of defiance would somehow bring restitution for whatever their perceived injustices are. As a proud American, no matter your political beliefs, nothing should make your blood boil more.
According to the Supreme Court, desecrating the American flag is protected by the 1st amendment. Freedom of speech is a right every man deserves, but the right to punch someone in the mouth that is abusing a symbol that people have fought and died for in order for them to act like idiots should also be protected.
