Throughout history when an army took possession of enemy ground they immediately displayed their own countries flag.   The Greatest photo of WWII is of Marines doing that on Iwo Jima.   The Countries flag shows the world that the land it is flying over is controlled by that country.

I am sick and tired of see protesters waving the flags of their former countries.   If they want to display and live under that flag they can return from where they came from.   I have seen demonstrations in person in Miami where the Hatian flag was being displayed and others were the Cuban Flag was being displayed.   I now see protesters flying the Mexican flag in every demonstration about immigration.

We need a law that it is illegal to display the flag of a foreign government on American soil.  Of course with an exception to the grounds of the UN and foreign Embassy's.  

You may say of course  this will never happen because anyone can burn our flag or even defecate on it and still be protected by our Courts.   However, if the law was written and passed I can't see how it would be free speech to display the flag of a foreign country and once held up by the high court it would be the law of the land.  This is because the display of a flag still today is a symbol that the land the flag is flying on is property of the countries whose flag is on display.   That is accepted all over the world. 

Do I think such a law will ever be, no and that is the sad state of things today.

There's whole bunch of them out in front of the UN Building.......as you already noted. Maybe I should read the whole post first....[idea]
I have nothing wrong with another country's flag being flown-underneath the US flag. I've flown the German flag and the Welsh flag that way.

German & Welsh? Talk about a pub crawl that went wrong somewhere...

Nothing against people showing pride in their origins or heritage, but if they're at a demonstration & flying a foreign flag? Nope. As we say here, that's not cricket!

A flag represents that the land the flag is flying over belongs to the country represented by that flag.   It is an age old symbol of the ownership of a people.  When you fly the flag of another country over land owned by the people of the United States it is a disrespectful act.   


The UN is land dedicated to that Organization by us and we have right to allow it.   If one is proud of their heritage then by all means display it as Entropy says, under the United States Flag.   The act of displaying a single solitary flag from any country here in the United States is offensive to me.  Protestors are waving their flags in lieu of the United States of America flag and making demands on this country.    Illegal aliens march freely on our streets waving the flags of their country demanding the right to be here.   They have no right to be here but have a right to apply for entry, work permits and even citizenship.   It is the right of this country to grant or deny that request.  They are demanding a right but deny us our right, the right to say who enters this country.   They have intimidated their way into our country, intimidated the weaklings on the left to even make it incorrect to even call them illegals.  How does "Undocumented worker" sound to you?   The left wants no borders period and these illegals are being used by them as pawns in advancing that cause.   A simple act of waving the flag of another country over land owned by the people of the United States is symbolism of that cause.

I welcome all that enter by our rules and laws and follow our laws while here.   I do not welcome someone who enters like a thief in the night.   Would you welcome someone who simply opened your door, came into your home and demanded you feed them, cloth them and provide for them?   What if you looked out your window and saw a tent was put up in your yard and people you don't know, can't even speak to because they don't understand your language and they strike the flag of their country above the tent.   You find a way to communicate with them only to be told by them that they have a right to be there and you are a bigot and evil if you make them leave.  If we would not allow any of this in our home then why would we allow it in our country.

If they want to fly the flag of another country it better be under the Star and Stripes and they better be a citizen of this country.  No none citizen should have a right to fly the flag of another country on American soil, period.   Well, again anyone can do what they want whether they are citizens or illegals as the United States has lost control of the issue and lacks the commitment to get it back.  Anyone who tries to is labeled a bigot and racist.  But the people are fed up and change my come.................................maybe even while I am still alive, or least my children are.
