So I came across a story I wanted to blog about and one of the images in a source article sent me in another direction.
Certain people can’t help but to attack non-Christian people and practices no matter the context of reality. A great example is how folks have a cow over a number of police departments in the USA allowing Muslim and Sikh adherents to wear modified religious head-gear in the line of duty. I don’t understand the outrage and I fully extend to folks of the Jewish faith the right to wear their yarmulke at work. I would stipulate it needs to be color coordinated just as I expect hijab and dastar to match the overall uniform.
Anyway back to the crux of the matter. One of the signs that has been making the rounds at the anti-Trump women marches is this:
Created by the “artist” that created the iconic Obama image this poster and the very real world use of the flag as hijab has many in a tizzy.
I personally DO disagree with the use of an actual flag as an article of clothing and I’m also not a big fan of using the flag as a base of an article of clothing. That said the First Amendment generally trumps (note small t) flag protocol. That may be a subject Americans need to get back to but for now we’ll just file it under “it is what it is”.
I’ll leave you with this though:
and perhaps you can get back to me with your patriotic outrage.
