one hot morning in the summer of 1984, Gregory Johnson didn't agree with Ronald Reagan's ideas and opinions and wanted to send his message, to show his opinion
I need to make a statement to show my opinion
Johnson joined a group of protestors who were standing outside The Republican National Convention (where Reagen was set to be nominated as the republican presidential candidate) As his statement Johnson burned an American Flag.
You should be arrested and fined, because you disobeyed the law prohibiting "desecration of a venerated object."
But I was practicing my right of freedom of speech that should be protected by the first amendment!
I guess youre right, I have said many times that speech is not limited to words. Even though people were offended by this notion, that doesnt make it ok for me to limit this act of speech.
WHAT?!! WHAT HE DID IS COMPLETELY DISRESPECTFUL!
I know you are frustrated, but you have to understand that everyone has different opinions that you might find offensive, but the government doesn't have the right to decide what opinions are too offensive to express.
Hey yall im back! Sorry i wasnt here, i was busy exercising.............. my rights!
