    Trump says a lot of things, much of it contradictory.

    I’d wager you might get that today if you burn someone’s rainbow or BLM flag.

    lol I believe there have been people charged with hate crimes over burning rainbow flags, no doubt they would do the same for a BLM one. It all should be protected as private property and no more.

    An Iowa man who was found guilty of lighting a local church’s LGBTQ flag on fire was sentenced to more than 16 years in prison Wednesday.

    Adolfo Martinez, 30, was found guilty last month of a hate crime, third-degree harassment and reckless use of fire after admitting to police in June that he stole a pride banner hanging outside the Ames United Church of Christ and set it on fire using lighter fluid about two blocks away outside the Dangerous Curves Gentleman’s Club, The Des Moines Register reported.

    Story County Attorney Jessica Reynolds said in June that the hate crime charge was added because Mr. Martinez targeted the church’s property because of “what it represents as far as sexual orientation.”

    Mr. Martinez was sentenced to 15 years for the hate crime charge, one year for reckless use of fire and 30 days for harassment, all of which will be served consecutively, the Associated Press reported.

    That's insane. A bastard can stick his flesh into a child's naughty parts and get less time than that.

    Nobody should go to jail for burning a flag. Especially if the flag in general was a flag you purchased.
