  1. Sometimes, what goes around, comes around…..there is never any diligent search for those in VT responsible for the assault pro-lifers, vandalize pregnancy centers, destroying the VT Capital, running over GOP candidate’s roadway/private property signs — but we now all need to be “on the alert” for destroying a flag?

    Yeah, OK. My eyes are peeled. (Fingers crossed). — You reap what you sow — And the “tolerance” party loves harassment, violence, and goin’ rogue.

  2. Appears the Isle is in revolt and they ain’t going to take it anymore. Good for them – I hope the sentiment is not missed on the globalist mob – people have had enough of their shenanigans and their wickedness.

  3. If we were suppose that conflicts are decided by the use of power, we might applaud these crimes if they were perpetrated against our opposition. When the opposition uses unjust tactics and seems to get away with it, to respond in kind is very tempting. But to do so, lowers oneself to the level of one’s opponent. To respond with integrity requires us to to have faith in the living God that right makes might and not the other way around.

    • I agree with you in context. However, I think of Matthew 21:12-13 – 12 Jesus entered the temple courts and drove out all who were buying and selling there. He overturned the tables of the money changers and the benches of those selling doves. 13 “It is written,” he said to them, “‘My house will be called a house of prayer,’[e] but you are making it ‘a den of robbers Whatever moves a person to remove a symbol of segregation, “pride”, and lies is a response to the wickedness perpetrated by those who turn a blind eye to the Truth and the hypocrisy of their Masters. There was no condemnation when buildings were burned, stores ransacked, and our very own leaders stood at their podiums spewing hatred and lies toward fellow citizens. This war is good vs evil.

  4. Alex A. makes an interesting observation ….what if?
    Another aspect to flag/narrative intolerance not often spoken of, might be pent-up rage from individuals molested in the past from/by unscrupulous homosexuals taking advantage of younger people.
