"No disrespect should be shown to the flag of the United States of America." Section 8
"The flag represents a living country and is itself considered a living thing." Section 8j Flag Code

People who live in this wonderful country of ours generally show "Old Glory" the proper respect. Unbelievably there are some people who say they are US citizens, or who want to be here who deliberately disrespect the United States Flag.

No flag shall be flown above the United States flag on our soil. Most of us have heard and seen disrespect shown to our Nation's Flag. We regrettably disrespect the flag with our logo - nothing should be placed upon Old Glory! We did not intend to disrespect but to show the beauty of the Bald Eagle, Our National Symbol, along with the Glorious US Flag. They both represent the Freedom our Country has maintained for so many years. Flags are worn on our hats shirts etc, but we are not supposed to wear them as an article of clothing. I believe the disrespect so many of us are showing can be overlooked with the Patriotic meaning it portrays.

To boldly and blatantly disrespect our flag is to show disrespect for this Country and cannot be tolerated. Old Glory is constantly being abused.

On October 5, 2007 the Hispanic owner of a local bar in Reno, Nevada flew the Mexican Flag above the USA Flag on the same pole. Evidently he did not care that it is very abusive to this Country. Refusing to take it down he stated no one has the guts to do anything about it. Jim Brossard, US Army Veteran, was appalled when he heard this. He drove to the location in downtown Reno, there were TV cameras already at the scene. Bravely Jim got out of his vehicle and walked up to the flagpole and cut the rope and pulled down the two flags. He carefully made sure the Flag of the United States Of America was not abused. Hurriedly folding it up he allowed the Mexican Flag to fall to the ground.

Jim walked away carrying the American flag with him and said to the cameraman they'd have to fight to get it back. Unedited video of Jim "Rescuing the flag."

Young Patriot, Nick Morris, sophomore at Klein Collins High School and ROTC Recruit, from Spring, Tx. removed a Mexican Flag from a hallway corridor because there were no American Flags flying higher. Not knowing what to do with the flag, he threw it away. He was suspended from school for 3 days. He must make restitution for the missing flag.

On March 27, 2006 800-1,000 students Marched in protest of Congress' debates over immigration policies and the potential of cracking down on illegal immigrants. Their protest ended up at Montebello High School where they lowered the school's flags and raised the Mexican Flag with the US Flag beneath it. Not only did they disrespect Old Glory and Sovereignty of our country but they flew our flag upside down (meaning in dire distress.) The school's California State Flag was stolen by them. Fortunately for the students of Montebello, they were on lock down and inside the school.

To destroy our Flag is to destroy the dignity of our Country. Old Glory must never touch the ground, but you see so much vandalism from these protesters, stomping the flag into the ground, burning it, one man actually had a dog leash and was dragging the flag like a dead dog! They seem to feel they need to curse our Country and the Citizens.We are beginning to see so many demonstrations of this sort lately. What these people people want is for us to open our borders and give them our Country and all the benefits that go with Freedom. Evidently the illegals desire to live in this Country, but they do not want to respect us and our rules. Most of them do not contribute anything to our Country.

My gosh if you cant' respect us just get the heck out of here. You came here because you wanted to. If you don't like it here simply swim back across the border or just turn yourself in, INS will get you home!

Please do not disrespect our Flag and Country. We The People have been quiet for too long and let our great Country be abused. These people should be arrested and punished for their abusive ways.


  1. I had forgotten about those kids disgracing the flag like that. Too bad there aren't more people who are willing to take a stand like Jim Brossard did.

  2. I'm against violence but step on, spit on, burn or disrespect the flag or the Constitution of these United States you are doing the same to me and I will not tolerate it and violence you shall have. After watching the video that just angered me that much more. Why did he have to be politically correct in this instance, that is stupid.

  3. Here you go puttin the mexicans down again. They are fighting for their rights. What makes you think your flag is better than ours

  4. Manuel, what rights are you talking about, if they and you are legal then you have all the rights that we have. As far as the flag goes, we are in the United States of America and it is called respect. You respect the country that you are in and by doing that you will earn our respect. Enough said.

  5. No other country in the world would let some one get by with the disrespect that these people have shown. I think the guilty ones should be fined or imprisoned!

  6. It is illegal to desecrate the US flag. I do not know how or when we decided to let people destroy the value of our flag. Back in the sixties people were arrested for burning the flag. I think we should punish and fine people who do not respect the flag.

  7. Why do we turn away when we see something like this happening? Then we complain about it. I wonder who is supposed the laws pertaining to our flag.
    Thank you Jim Brossard for protecting Old Glory.

  8. Outrageous. WTF is wrong with everyone ? Our soldiers died protecting us and giving us freedom and is this the kind of freedom they were fighting for? To degrade our flag also ?
    Wake up everyone geeze.

  9. This just goes to show we can no longer be silent and sit back. We have got to fight for our country and the respect we have worked for. Why do we want these people who still consider their birth country before the country they are choosing to live in?
    Yesterday Mexico's Pres. Calderon referred to the illegals as the people of his country. His citizens are going to be subject to racial profiling in Az. If they are his people, he needs to take them home and support them.
