Here’s just one more reason Johnny Cash was a national treasure.
Many people can give their reasons for why they support or oppose an American’s right to burn the flag.
But few can do so in the way that the Man In Black could.
This video is of Johnny Cash on the Ralph Emery show, they talk about Burning The Flag. Johnny voices his feelings, then…
He had very specific people in mind — people from his visit to ‘Nam who had (barely) survived a Napalm strike — when thought about what that flag REALLY meant.
To say it left an impression would be an understatement.
And then Cash was asked to recite The Ragged Old Flag, which he did.
If you’d prefer to see him do the same performance in Concert — with the same stern warning for anyone foolish enough to come for HIS flag, but without the short reference to the Vietnam veterans he saw (and smelled) coming back with their injuries — we’ve got that, too.
(FYI — if you watch it on THIS one, FascistBook doesn’t get any traffic.)
This and Red Skelton’s Pledge of Allegiance should be included as part of the Civics curriculum.
Maybe then, we wouldn’t have so many Americans convinced that America is the scourge of the world and ought to apologize for our mere existence.
In fact, we should play this NFL legend’s thoughts on the subject, too:

If you’re an American, you are literally the envy of most of the world, for a whole host of reasons.
As Jim Brown said, ‘I am an American. That flag is my flag. I want to represent it that way.’
So act like it. Show some respect to the nation and to yourself.
After all … it’s YOUR flag, too.
