The burning of the Peak 1 flag …

The burning of the Peak 1 flag is one more disgusting outrage from the left. To the person who burned the flag: The American flag is the symbol of our beautiful country, my country. Thus, I take great personal offense to your arrogant crime.

The left is becoming more violent and intolerant of opposing views every day. It’s time for normal Americans to re-establish control of social norms and push radical leftists to the outer margins of the debate.

I was very disheartened to read Kurt Kizer’s comment that he feared replacing the flag, that it might be burned again. What kind of logic is that? We shouldn’t rebuild the World Trade Center because Muslims might knock it down again? We shouldn’t attack the Taliban because they might hurt us again? If we follow that logic then the enemy has won. The traitors are among us, and we cannot let fear of their cowardly acts govern our decisions.

I volunteer to pay for a new flag and flagpole. All Joe Evankovich and Ari Dolegowski have to do is contact me via the editor of this paper.

Arson is a crime, and I hope the FBI catches these criminals.
