Flags burned at veterans’ graves – Memorial Day

Disrespect of the dead is NOT Civil Disobedience.

Let’s let some retired Marines guard this place for a week – locked and loaded. 

I’m sorry – I don’t care what your feelings are on the war, or on the current political situation.  Desecrating graves is NOT going to win you any converts.

Come ring my doorbell, and hand me a Swastika – if you have the balls.  100 Northcrest Drive, Castle Hills, TX.  I would LOVE to meet you.  No appointment required.

And no, I am not inviting trouble – my address is easy enough to find, even if I didn’t share it.

But I am ready for trouble.


ORCAS ISLAND, Wash. – Vandals burned dozens of small American flags that decorated veterans’ graves for Memorial Day and replaced many of them with hand-drawn swastikas, authorities said Monday.

Forty-six flag standards were found empty and another 33 flags were in charred tatters Sunday in the cemetery, authorities said. Swastikas drawn on paper appeared where 14 of the flags had been.

Members of the American Legion on this island off Washington’s northwest coast replaced the burned flags with new ones Sunday afternoon.

The vandals struck again on Memorial Day after a guard left at dawn, the San Juan County sheriff’s office said. This time, the vandals left 33 of the hand-drawn swastikas.
