Forums - Politics Discussion - HAHA - Hypocrite Trump Sits Through Military Flag Ceremony After Criticizing Others For Flag Disrespect

Tagged games:

Now, personally speaking, I don't give a crap about respecting a piece of fabric. It's a silly primitive tradition that belongs with other silly primitive traditions, like sacrificing a goat so rain will come. The funny part of all of this is that Trump took such a massive hissy fit over sports players knealing to the flag during a sports game, and then committed an actual offense by SITTING through a flag ceremony at a military event.

The Republican party is the party of hypocrisy, hillarity, and whiney bitchery.

But anyway, this American youtuber seems to have covered the story best:

Ok



My (locked) thread about how difficulty should be a decision for the developers, not the gamers.

Just skimmed through the Australian flag ceremony protocol, no mention of standing up.



He's always been a hypocrite. He is the living definition of hypocrite (among other things), so him doing this does not surprise me in the slightest.



If you think it's just "showing respect to a piece of fabric", you'd be wrong. No one cares about the fabric of the flag, they care about what it represents. It represents our country, our personal liberties, and the men and women who die defending those liberties.

And the right to protest.

 

I find it more disrespectful to not exercise the rights we fought for.



Massimus - "Trump already has democrat support."

He also said John McCain is not a war hero because he was captured. For those who don't know, McCain was offered to be released but refused to leave until all of his fellow soldiers were released as well.

Not disrespecting the military at all. But the people kneeling at the NFL? Totally are.

But yeah, the list of things he's criticized others for, and now does himself, is long.

Which is an outdated mythical concept. You could argue that the sacrifice of the goat represents the hard work of crop growing, the feeding of the people, and the value of rains. It doesn't make either the flag or the goat sacrificing ritual truely representative in the slightest, and there is no reason to have such representations. It's very silly to assign a bunch of unrelated values to icons or rituals; practically rural/bumpkin paganism.

And obviously, within the US, there's a growing number of people who do not believe the US flag stands for those arbitrarily values. An increasing number are seeing it as a false mockery of those values because the people who uphold the flag with the most extreme displays are often, very blatantly, against those values.

And if someone thinks they're being disrespected just because someone is protesting the country they're full of themselves. I mean how much of an egomaniac do you have to be to feel offended when someone protests a something that's wrong in this country. If anything people should be honored that more people are trying to fight to make the country a better place.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

Trump was cool until he went after NFL players. He really messed up there.

The one constant for leaders through the ages was the wisdom to give the people something to eat and entertainment, and they'll be satisfied.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.
