Outraged that the junior senator from New York has tried to stifle their freedom of expression and fearing Monday's vote on a flag burning amendment, an anonymous gang of freedom fighters blazed a trail of American flags Wednesday night.
And in his own quiet way, the president sent them a signal of solidarity.
Cops in Brooklyn this morning received seven complaints that flags hung proudly on folks' homes had been torched. It's believed that the arson took place between 9 p.m. Wednesday and 7 a.m. Thursday.
The case is being investigated as a simple matter of criminal mischief, but this "crime" goes far higher than a gang of street toughs. It reaches all the way to the White House.
In Vienna today, President Bush was surrounded by a throng of fans and well-wishers -- mostly Republicans employed by the local U.S. embassy.
Bush reportedly used a Sharpie felt-tip pen to scribble his autograph across one American flag as a souvenir for at least one happy Republican, and in complete defiance of the fascist flag bill that Senator Hillary Clinton co-sponsored late last year.
Not only did Bush defy Clinton, he also violated U.S. Code Title 4, Chapter 1, Section 8 (g):
The flag should never have placed upon it, nor on any part of it, nor attached to it any mark, insignia, letter, word, figure, design, picture, or drawing of any nature.
In yet another nauseating attempt to straddle an issue, Sen. Clinton supported Utah Republican Sen. Bob Bennett's flag-protection bill in December, but insisted that she was not in favor of an amendment to the constitution outlawing flag burning.
But the more imminent threat to American liberty is the vote next week on Sen. Orrin Hatch's SJ Res 12, which would give Congress the "power to prohibit the physical desecration of the flag of the United States."
Boy Scouts, veterans and lesser-ranked members of the American armed forces will be the primary target of that draconian law.
