Putting American flags on police cars sparks backlash in Laguna Beach

S E E D E D   C O N T E N T



“People are screaming that the American flag on a police car is somehow or another ... hurting people’s feelings who might be immigrants or visitors,” said Councilman Peter Blake. “People are actually ridiculous enough to bring up comments about our cop cars having American flags on them.”

I know when i see the flag it makes me think how we discriminate against 158 of the 160 genders. It's so oppressive! Nazism I tell ya!

Depends.

I deliberately tried to leave it unclear as to who* I was referring! (People here in this discussion? People who put the flags there? people who opposed putting the flags there?).

*Actually "to whom" is gramatically correct, but IMO people who are picky about correct grammar are really obnoxious, so I said "who".

Will some of these snowflakes protesting over this ever learn that they have no right to go through life completely unoffended?

What a bunch of freaking loons!

That's no way to talk about persons (one can't be too careful about mis-gendering, looks can be deceiving).  The other day i accidentally referred to a it as ma'am and it immediately corrected me and let me know it identified as a hippopotamus.

So I bought it some feed and it let me off the hook. It was very educating.

I'm thinking of buying some hipster jeans and touring the US on an apology tour in a minivan. Do you think I can be president.  How doe's Beta sound?

Identities are important!

In fact so important that a while back Facebook (Peace Be Upon Them!) published a list of identities that their users could have-- so that everyone would be happy and no one would be offended.

For ten years, the social network limited billions of people identifying as either male or female. Now there are dozens of terms to pick from. Here’s how to understand them all.

I recycle and only ride a bike even in 10 feet of snow and -35 degree weather, so I get to live.

the greatest trick the patriarchy ever played on the matriarchy?

getting them to protest nude.

we snuck a midget who had a high pitched voice into a feminist meeting... he hid under the bleachers.

we suspect he was looking up skirts at the time checking for "sex objects" but this is unconfirmed.

while they were chanting "we are not sex objects"  over and over.

 at the right moment, the midget yelled in his girly voice "free the nipple"

and that's the way it went down jrSmiley_100_smiley_image.jpg

Seems as though we deserve the idiots among us.

Why do we tolerate anti-Americanism on our soil?

Putting American Flags On Police Cars Sparks Backlash In Laguna Beach

and ten minutes later the ones who hate the flag try to pretend they are true patriots.

I'm thinking the country has just about had enough bs from the left.

it is awesome to see national pride returning once again.

the left will kick and scream themselves into oblivion the whole way.

cheers :)

They are in the US.

They enforce US law.

They are driven by US Citizens.

Don't like it?  Then leave.  I hear Venezuela has a lot of open homes now.

Exactly Jeremy....if the symbol of the US offends someone, what are they doing here?

Apparently the symbol offends them but the benefits don't.

I'll just say the car is not inconspicuous. Really stands out. No sneaking up on people in this town.

Really stands out.

  A cops presence is a good deterrent.

No sneaking up on people in this town.

What are doing that you need to worry about being snuck up on? jrSmiley_68_smiley_image.png
