    Police have arrested the guy who hit the conservative recruiter. The university has condemned the attack.

    I haven't seen anyone support Mr. Greenberg's violence. The university has said he wasn't a student there. Where are all the lefties claiming that he's a very fine person?

    Indeed. I don't think liberals are typically violent aggressors with an ideological commitment to the use of force. Certainly not on par with the institutionalized violence that is par for the course for paleo-conservativism.

    I don't know why anyone would say anything good about him He needs to be charged and receive his punishment. I not crazy about one non religious Conservative. But I don't beat him up.

    You could probably find some among the mobs who turned the campus into a war zone in 2017 and threaten to do it again any time a conservative tries to speak there.

    "Probably" and "any time"? Huh. It doesn't count unless you have a real person, not just a boogeyman or two.

    Remind me again which political ideologies were endorsed by the guy who drove his car into a crowd of protesters killing one and injuring several more?

    I don't know, refusing to hire a talented QB because of his stance could be construed as economic violence.

    The flag code is not a criminal statute nor does it authorize force against anyone who violates it, especially not someone who is not a member of law enforcement. Not to mention that the Supreme Court ruled that burning the US flag is protected speech under the First Amendment 30 years ago.

    Repeatedly referring to the non-Fox press as the enemy of the people for one. What do some people do to enemies? They attack them.

    I served in the military, both as enlisted and as an officer. Flag burning or kneeling during the national anthem is not disrespectful to the military no matter how many times people claim otherwise. The lawful exercise of our constitutionally guaranteed rights is what military members have been dying for for over two hundred years.

    there are plenty of documented instances of Veterans stopping people from burning and disrespecting the Flag. You should look a little closer before making a blanket statement as the above.

    Glad to see you know the mindset of half the country based on a few individuals. I suppose I could gauge the mindset of the right based on these people:

    I mean the President of the United States did call them "very fine people", right?

    And they were wrong to do so. They, as veterans, not only broke the law (assault) but violated another person's constitutional rights. Rights that, as military, they swore an oath to protect.

    Remember when Jesus ran the people out of the temple with a whip? Was that assault or righteous indignation? I guess I see the Veterans that stand for the reverence of the flag sort of the same way.

    Some people worship the flag a bit much. I typically throw old flags in the trash. I think is better than keeping it the garage.

    Then I guess Charles Manson should never have been sent to jail. In fact, according to the prosecutor of his case, Manson convinced three of followers to try to tell the court that he had nothing to do with the planning and execution of the murders.

    Also, we need to take "incitement to riot" out of the criminal code.

    Why on earth would you think such a ridiculous notion?

    Speaking of someone making blanket statements... this is one of them. As I shared before, I have been involved in political and social justice activism for almost 30 years and the only violence I have ever encountered firsthand or witnessed over these years has been from conservatives, not liberals.

    (1) It has been conservatives, not liberals, who have cursed me and have been aggressive toward me for refusing to stand for the National Anthem or for refusing to recite the Pledge of Allegiance.

    (2) It has been conservatives, not liberals, who have cursed me and have been physically aggressive toward me for holding the American flag upside down during a public protest and demonstration.

    (3) It has been conservatives, not liberals, who have been consistently opposed over the years to my activism efforts concerning Native American and LGBT related political and social justice issues.

    (4) It has been conservatives, not liberals, who have repeatedly cursed at me and told me that if I don't love America, then I can get the you know what out of the country and never come back.

    (5) It has been conservatives, not liberals, who have consistently mocked, insulted, disrespected, demeaned and disparaged Native Americans and their heritage and culture over the years.

    (6) It has been liberals, not conservatives, who have been consistently compassionate and supportive of me during the last 28 years I have been involved in political and social justice activism.

    It was both.

    Veterans (I am one BTW) aren't Jesus and neither are they sworn law enforcement officers (most of the time). If they are LEOs and did that, they would be going to jail.[/quote]

    Next time, give it to your local Scout Troop. They'll dispose of it in a respectful manner.
