Flags set ablaze

It only matters what is set ablaze these days

You ever notice how it actually matters what catches on fire these days?

burnt gay flagThere are minor fires of all sorts all the time. Most often it could be a cigarette butt in the dry grass, or sometimes even a garbage can.

Sometimes pranksters take a bag of dog crap, set it on fire and ring someone’s door bell.

Those get only minor mentions, if at all.

But if someone sets a FLAG on fire – “stop the presses.” A message when accompanied by fire, apparently is incredibly offensive. And not just to the fabric!

Fire is fire, whether by accident, done negligently or as a prank. And has the same temperature no matter what. Why single out flags? Heck, harmless flag fires get more press than buildings that burn down (sometimes with people and cute pets inside!)

Everyone talks about equality and diversity – I think you, as the general public should DEMAND that all fires – regardless of how minor – should get EQUAL press. Not just because the it was a flag, or was rainbow-colored or not.

What messages are they trying to send anyway?
