This could make a new party game: Which anti-fag is hiding the flag? You've got 20 seconds... go!

Hopefully he won't be sued, which is all the loonies want anyway. Not sure, but L. Ron and Westboro maybe neck and neck for the best religious/moneygrab schemes active.

Whoa. Midwest City cops made a rational decision? Who the hell replaced them?

When I was there (spent 11 years), I got hit by a car making an illegal left hand turn while I was riding my bike (bicycle). The ambulance came and I was put on the stretcher while the cop was asking for my driver's license and personal information because he was going to write me a ticket (for what, I still don't know). Every person in the crowd started telling the cop that it was the old bat's fault for illegally turning and eventually he stopped trying to write a ticket.

MWC cops are assholes.

Good on the serviceman for doing that, though. I still can't believe Westboro bothered to go to MWC.

It's a sad day in America when our flag isn't allowed into a woman's pants.

"Rescued"? Really? It's a f*cking piece of cloth. You don't "rescue" a piece of cloth, particularly when it belongs to someone else, and you're attempting to forcibly remove it from their person.

Seriously, these. I've never understood flag worship.

Not exactly related to TFA, but have you ever noticed that the most hardcore flag worshippers are often the people who don't care when the government takes a dump on the Constitution? IME, it is usually the case that the "if you aren't doing anything wrong, you have nothing to hide" people are the biggest flag-thumpers.

FTFA: "Ray Adam Modisette, 20, said he was reacting to a war protester who was stuffing an American flag down her pants."

The Westboro morans aren't "war protesters"....

That's interesting. Our schools didn't even do the pledge moment after 5th grade anyway.

That's what I came in to say. And while I respect our flag, part of what it stands for is freedom of expression. If I'm not allowed to stick it in my pants, I must not be in America anymore.

Sumpinlikedat: That's interesting. Our schools didn't even do the pledge moment after 5th grade anyway.

Mine did it all through high school. Of course, this was back in the early 90s (class of '96) and in central Pennsylvania, so YMMV and all that...

Luckily, the teachers were cool enough not to get on our cases about it as long as we at least stood up.

Are you one of those guys who claims the cops never do anything nice? Ever think you might not have had an experience with every MWC cop and there might be a few good ones?

I agree completely. The asshole in question has just as much right to it as anyone else. I'm suprised that the marine wasn't charged with theft.
 
2008-03-19 12:34:26 PM
Oh, so those lunatics are now "war protestors"

I remember when they were anti-gay fundy assholes.

And, seriously, flag "rescue?"

Flag worshipers show a distinct lack of critical thinking, often found worshiping other things as well.

I live on Tinker AFB so I am really getting a kick out of these replies...

I commend the Marine on his actions on saving our nations flag from those worthless piece of sh*t. If he were not 20, and I saw him in Bricktown some night, I would buy him a few drinks.

As for the rest of you saying it's just a piece of cloth... I have nothing to say.

So I don't understand their logic....God is killing our soldiers because America is lenient to gays?

So are they saying we'll have an army that cannot be killed and our soldiers will be invulnerable if we simply outlaw homosexuality? Is that what they're saying?

I don't understand flag worship, but I also don't really care if this guy believes that the symbolic value of the flag is enough for him to "rescue" it from one of these idiots.

If I were on the civil jury for the impending assault tort case, I would find for the defendant in a heartbeat.

No. In the late 80s and early 90s, that's the way it was. They actually bragged about it and parents loved it. I'm speaking specifically of MWC cops.

I have more respect for cops than most so no, I'm not a "lump 'em all into one group" kinda guy.

Well, that's why Katrina and 9/11 happened if you ask more mainstream religious folk. Seems to make perfect sense to some people.

I wouldn't really equate the two. The Westboro folk are crazy in a way that the word crazy is an inadequate description. The Scientologists are both crazy and money-hungry.

Really? So I can kill a mutherfarker if I get mad? What else can be done that they'll excuse because I was "emotional"?

They say the craziest shiat possible, hoping to get someone to slip up and infringe on their rights, and then sue away. Logic doesn't come into the equation.

So is it okay to reach into a woman's pants if you only suspect them of containing an American flag?
(crosses fingers)
 
2008-03-19 12:59:29 PM
I hope the guy isn't being given a break because he's a Marine. Just because you serve doesn't give you the right to cross a line and mess with somebody when for anybody else it would be assault.

That being said, if said Marine were to grab a sharp object and stab these people to death, they'd better not put me in the jury. Because I'd let him walk. No joke.
 
2008-03-19 12:59:37 PM
Was the flag screaming?
 
2008-03-19 12:59:44 PM
Congress needs to pass a constitutional amendment banning stuffing the flag into citizens pants. Right after they finish their important steroid investigation.

I think the NSA, CIA and FBI would agree with your logic, to a tee.

I thought these guys are getting sued
 
2008-03-19 01:00:50 PM
Good for him. This is the first time I heard the term 'flag worshiper' and while I don't consider myself one of those, I think it should be treated with respect. There are a brazillian ways to make a point, but sadly most people go for the most inflammatory gestures.

You can always tell how much someone truly respects liberty when an oppressed minority is a target. The anger and resentment shown towards the Phelps clan says more about the angry and resentful than it does about the Phelps clan. They have no political power, no influence, and survive due to lawsuits because so many American citizens are violent and/or authoritarian.

The Marine was clearly in the wrong and the cops are clearly playing favorites. Perhaps he, the Marine, should worry less about the flag and reflect on what exactly he is supposed to be defending. I suppose the high road of saying something similar to, "I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it," is just expecting to much.
