Maxine Waters Sees People Burning American Flag. Her Response is Shameful

By

Maxine Waters has made a name for herself for opposing the cornerstone of our democracy – free elections.

She doesn’t like that Donald Trump won the 2016 election, and so has been on a campaign to try to overturn that result.

As such, it should come as little surprise that Waters also stands among those who support the current legality of burning the American flag.

During a recent protest outside her office in Los Angeles, at least one American flag was burned, and there were reports of isolated violence.

Waters released a statement condemning the violence, and saying that she does “not agree with torching the flag as a form of protest.”

HOWEVER, she continued by stating that she “understands the Constitution guarantees everyone the right to this form of free expression.”

Of course, this has been the subject of heated debate in America for decades.

Those who truly oppose burning the flag as a form of protest have been trying to get the Flag Desecration Amendment to the Constitution passed for years. It’s thanks to representatives like Waters that Congress has thus far failed to protect the flag in this way.
