In a recent tweet, wanna be dictator Donald J Trump issued a statement that he would unequivocally deport or jail those who express their right to freedom of speech, in response to recent events of flag burning in protest to the election of Donald J Trump to the position of President of the United States of America. Typical of Donald Trumps knee jerk reactions to current events, the President Elect said will take any measures he can to protect the American Flag, that means he will even punish the people its symbol protects by throwing them in jail for at least 1 year and possibly deportation.
Someone needs to remind Donald J Trump of the first amendment to the United States Constitution.
“Amendment I. Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.“
This language even protects flag burners as set down by our supreme court
Trump supporters and those within his camp make the argument that the supreme court ruling does not apply here as the first amendment specifically states congress may not take away this right, but that does not exclude the executive branch, and thereis nothing restricting the president from issuing an executive order calling for the jailing or deportation of anyone who burns the American flag. Trump is very well known for his legal battles and he says based on his lawyers and experience the supreme court ruling will not matter to his executive order.
This is going to be interesting to see, how far will Trump go and will he try to become a dictator, from his recent actions it seems this is his plan.
