reminder: bernie lost some of his closest friends over his pivot away from radical politics and toward liberalism decades ago. i think he generally means well but the same judgment that led him to call for cop raises here also led him to endorse a racist who had been credibly accused of rape.
Some people are simple minded and don't understand the freedom our flag stands for. If I was to design a flag to represent freedom it would somehow portray that it's stepping on or burning itself. Flag worship is weird poo.
