So, the spineless motherfuckers are debating another Constitutional Amendment, this time banning flag burning.
Yeah, because that’s a critical issue.
Another conservative saw horse, brought out time and again to appease their mouth-breathing base who are too ignorant to recognize when they’re being played.
15 years ago, they were doing this bullshit dance. 15 fucking years.
The alternative hip-hop group Disposable Heroes of Hiphoprisy included verses about it in the first track of their 1992 album (“Satanic Reverses” off “Hipocrisy is the Greatest Luxury”). In honor of the criminal idiocy that passes for our representation, I’ll quote the significant passage here:
The House’s legislation
ripped the phoney foundation
off what we thought inherent
Sent Joey to the Supreme Court
‘Cause he made a statement
they called it desecration
of the symbol that was meant to represent
the freedom of so-called choice and dissent
They almost had me believing it
They were bleeding him
He said, “Burn, baby, burn”
‘Til the street samurai
said to my face that
any flag worth a shit
was woven from fire in the first place.
I’ve always loved those last two lines. This nation was born in revolution, you dumb fucks. If you’re not careful…..
