Not everyone is a fan of the flag or military or the people who serve. Sure, there are other ways of showing that, but I don't see how this warrants an INTERNET SEARCH PARTY
I half agree - I hate the blind support-our-troops, yer-either-with-us-or-against-us, if-you-hate-war-then-you-hate-freedom mentality that this country has sometimes. But at the same time, even of those symbols of remembrance don't necessarily mean much to one person, he should know that they mean a hell of a lot to others.

I'm all for rooting out arseholes like this.

Oh well, time for a good old fashioned witch hunt!
Because yes, of course someone would lie about this, take pictures, report it to media, etc.

Stop playing devil's advocate. You suck at it.

They might not mean much to you but to some their a symbol of gratitude and loss.

It's similar to going to someone's grave and throwing the flowers around and messing up the front.

Conformity and repercussions to deviance from established social norms. That's the big deal here.

No big deal.

Whether you think it's a big deal or not it should be agreed upon that the guy looks like a total ******-bag regardless, and probably deserves a good punch coming his way for any number of reasons.

I'm surprised this got a thread and this didn't:

Toronto war memorial defaced in 'hate crime'

Quote:

TORONTO - Toronto Police are calling the vandalism of a west-end war memorial "a hate crime."

A woman walking Sunday night by the sculpture in Coronation Park -- at the foot of Strachan Ave. and Lakeshore Blvd. W. -- called police after noticing someone had taken a black marker and written "Canada will burn; Praise Allah" on the memorial.

"This is an identifiable group," Det. Anthony Williams told reporters at the scene Monday. "The veterans should be respected. That's a total disrespect for our sworn members and military members who have made the ultimate sacrifice."

At the Remembrance Day ceremony at Old City Hall Sunday morning, anti-war protesters were heard chanting during the two minutes of silence.

Williams said he couldn't speculate whether the vandalism was related to the protest.

"I can't speculate as to what their motivation is, but if they did this on Nov. 10 or 11, someone is looking for an opportunity to draw attention to themselves," he said.

City cleaners scrubbed the offensive black lettering off the memorial.

Real news isn't interesting.

Some guy who doesn't know fashion and can't even pick on a flag his own size is interesting.

He actually used a semi-colon in his graffiti?

Not buying it.
