    theyre also in violation of the flag code.

    https://www.military.com/flag-day/us-flag-code.html

    §8. Respect for flag

    No disrespect should be shown to the flag of the United States of America; the flag should not be dipped to any person or thing. Regimental colors, State flags, and organization or institutional flags are to be dipped as a mark of honor.

    1. The flag should never be displayed with the union down, except as a signal of dire distress in instances of extreme danger to life or property.
    2. The flag should never touch anything beneath it, such as the ground, the floor, water, or merchandise.
    3. The flag should never be carried flat or horizontally, but always aloft and free.
    4. 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.
    5. The flag should never be fastened, displayed, used, or stored in such a manner as to permit it to be easily torn, soiled, or damaged in any way.
    6. The flag should never be used as a covering for a ceiling.
    7. 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.
    8. The flag should never be used as a receptacle for receiving, holding, carrying, or delivering anything.
    9. 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. Advertising signs should not be fastened to a staff or halyard from which the flag is flown.
    10. No part of the flag should ever be used as a costume or athletic uniform. However, a flag patch may be affixed to the uniform of military personnel, firemen, policemen, and members of patriotic organizations. The flag represents a living country and is itself considered a living thing. Therefore, the lapel flag pin being a replica, should be worn on the left lapel near the heart.
    11. The flag, when it is in such condition that it is no longer a fitting emblem for display, should be destroyed in a dignified way, preferably by burning

    Do tell... what did the British national terrorist do in the past that warranted FBI investigation?

    Rather than posting a Twitter sound bite from some random guy, post real facts.

    But, I'm sure you won't bother.

    i dont know if the fbi was aware, but he had been investigated (and cleared) by british intel. either way, one case has nothing to do with the other.

    Of course they don't. (unless the FBI only has 1 employee). Plus it's 2 different departments. Only a moron would think one has something to do with the other. Unfortunately, we are seeing how many morons are in this country.

    Still waiting on the leaders of the insurrection to be charged. Start at the top, and work your way down.

    This is one of the stupidest tweets, yet. Others have posted some of the problems with it. But does the guy or you beleive the terrorist that took the hostages in Texas was cleared to take over the temple by the FBI?

    What an idiot.

    Schrödinger's Deep State is simultaneously too weak to catch any individual entering the country with terroristic impulses, but not stop him from being able to buy a gun once he's here, and so omnipotently vengeful that it pursues otherwise well-intentioned patriots from overturning the government because their favorite YouTuber told them that society was collapsing around them for 10 years.

    those ladies sound like a couple of "very fine people", right comrade...er, i mean commodore?

    i know i keep saying this, but look at all the posters in this thread who spend more time defending and making excuses for insurrectionists vs. condemning them. attitudes like this are going to end up allowing it to happen again.

    The only way to detour politicians from inciting violence and insurrections in the future is to make an example of everyone involved in the coup. Charge them and put them behind bars! Until that happens they will do it again and again.

    I know he believes that no matter what he does, he will get away with it and he's a better man than the ave criminal on the street.

    Trump has millions, says he owns the best of everything, but lies, cheats, cons, and steals from millions for more money, power and glory. The other robs and steals around the neighborhoods to pay for food, rent, cars, clothes, and/or liquor and drugs.

    The problem is that white collar criminals, those in power, and those aiding and abetting men like Trump are the same ones deciding his fate. Justice in America can never be fair or equal when the jury is biased or involved in same crime.
