Other Ways The Flag Is Mistreated – Yet No One Complains

Social media gives everyone courage.  Courage to say things they wouldn’t necessarily say out loud.  Also, people tend to be easily swayed in one particular direction.  There are a lot of ‘followers’ vs. ‘leaders’ when it comes to controversial topics on the internet.  That is the case, right now, with the NFL players kneeling during the the National Anthem.  Well, I do believe you are in for a rude awakening.  

The American Flag, according to Federal Code, is mistreated…right before your eyes on a daily basis.  Yet, that doesn’t seem to bother people.  Here’s how:

  • The flag should not be displayed on a float in a parade
  • The flag should not be draped over the hood, top, sides, or back of a vehicle or of a railroad train or a boat. When the flag is displayed on a motorcar, the staff shall be fixed firmly to the chassis or clamped to the right fender.
  •  The flag should never be carried flat or horizontally, but always aloft and free.
  • The flag should never be used as wearing apparel, bedding, or drapery. It should never be festooned, drawn back, nor up, in folds, but always allowed to fall free. Bunting of blue, white, and red, always arranged with the blue above, the white in the middle, and the red below, should be used for covering a speaker’s desk, draping the front of the platform, and for decoration in general
  • The flag should never be used as a covering for a ceiling.
  • The flag should never have placed upon it, nor on any part of it, nor attached to it any mark, insignia, letter, word, figure, design, picture, or drawing of any nature.
  • The flag should never be used for advertising purposes in any manner whatsoever. It should not be embroidered on such articles as cushions or handkerchiefs and the like, printed or otherwise impressed on paper napkins or boxes or anything that is designed for temporary use and discard.
  •  No part of the flag should ever be used as a costume or athletic uniform

Can't get much more American than this. Lol. #fourthofjuly #lularoe #flagleggings #oldnavy #merica

I see ALL of these on a daily basis.  So, if we can turn our heads to all of the above, how can we judge people for kneeling during the National Anthem?  Seems rather hypocritical.
