I still find it amazing that cartoons first published 6 months ago are inciting riots now.
These events have allowed some in the US to further portray Muslims and Islam as violent, intolerant and dangerous. They seem to think that this type of grotesque overreaction to an insult is a systemic character flaw that we in the US are blessed to not be cursed with. I guess they have not seen this.
Saying the nation's symbol "deserves more respect than the protest message of some liberal hippie," a Missouri state lawmaker has introduced a bill legalizing the use of force to stop someone from desecrating the American flag.
So this wingnut wants to make it legal to beat someone up who is disposing of their own property in a manner of their own choice. That is just as absurd as rioting because someone drew and published an insulting cartoon.
