The Battle Flag

Email Print

The US government’s military banner is a religious object for state worshipers of all sripes. It is to be saluted, pledged, and treated with vast reverence. It must never touch the ground nor be flown in the dark nor in bad weather. It must be folded in a sacramental manner. And it must be cremated (but never burned with ill-intent!) and its ashes interred when sadly it can no longer serve the cause of government looting, mass murder, etc. So it is funny that one of the craziest neocons, Allen West (R-Pentagon), was caught violating the Flag Law.
