The points of the embroidered stars really are the best thing for digging out boogers.


Shawn Michaels said the same thing about the points of the Maple Leaf on the Canadian Flag.

See how everything comes full circle back to rasslin' here?
he also humped it as well, which was great in its own right

People who get offended by the desecration of a piece of cloth that was probably made in China tend to not care nearly as much about the desecration of the principles the cloth is supposed to represent.  Funny how that works. 

 

 

That's the whole reason people are encouraged to worship the cloth rather than the principles it is menat to represent. that way, people can blatantly disregard the principles, yet still drum up blind support by doihg it for"theflag/country" itself.

It's the same as this argument about disrespecting the Office of the President by calling out the crooks in the office.  We are worshiping the ofiice itself, rather than recognizing that unsavory elements might find their way in that office. 

 

It's false idolitry and its as old as civilization.  Get the people to worship the idols, then you can shift what it is that the idol actually represents, but the people will still defend it, because they've been trained that it is the idol (office/flag) that is important, moreso than any abstract ideas the idol was originally meant to represent.
