I believe it is wrong to desecrate the American flag. It is a symbol of freedom and of who we are, and it is an insult to all Americans, past and present, when it is burned or defamed. Too many dedicated men and women have fought and died to protect our flag and our freedoms for me to stand by and support its destruction in the name of so-called freedom of expression.
To which, two questions:
1. Would the senator make it a crime to "defame" the flag?
2. What's the difference between freedom of expression and "so-called" freedom of expression?
