CharlesSmith - 2011-05-24 The father's explanation is characterized by all those little asides and omissions that imply a deeper story. I would bet any money that the kid made the flag specifically to mock the JHW kid.
Seris - 2011-05-24 thats pretty much it right there
kingarthur - 2011-05-24 This story is like an orgasm paradox of retarded America. Crazy Christian religious beliefs mocked by conservative jingoism then suppressed in deference to Crazy Christian religious beliefs which are then exploded into man-on-the-street Tea Party knee-jerk reactions.
IrishWhiskey - 2011-05-24 That was just a kind excuse to avoid humiliating the boy. I mean he's 11 years old, on the verge of middle school, and he draws a flag with no stars, no straight lines, and only four stripes? There's no need to draw attention to his paste-eating.
chumbucket - 2011-05-24 Stars for the stars not added and especially for the abrubt decay of reporting here by ending on an analysis of the facebook page hits and video of the page without voiceover...nice.
I would like to hold you down, crumple up your child's pathetic excuse for a drawing of Old Glory and cram it down your throat the way he tried to metaphorically cram it down the throat of that Jehova's Witness kid.
He deliberately drew the flag to start shit and you likely encouraged him to be that way. He's going to grow up to be an asshole like you.
