    If anything, withdrawing the shoes shows more respect for the flag because flag code prohibits portraying the flag on clothing: https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/4/8

    The only question is whether this applies to outdated flags such as this.

    I remember when back during the Vietnam War Abbie Hoffman was arrested for having a flag patch sewn onto the back pocket of his jeans and that very night on TV during a Bob Hope special Raquel Welch wore a flag-themed bikini.

    I was watching the news this morning and a commentator had a very good point:

    Even IF the Betsy Ross Flag was co-opted by white nationalists, why should that mean we can't still use the flag? Do we just automatically stop using any symbol some racist or bad organization decides to co-opt? If so we will quickly run out of symbols.

    I have seen the KKK waving the current flag around.



    Does that mean we can no longer use our own flag? What if some hate group decided to co-opt the LBGT rainbow flag, does that mean LBGT can't use their own symbol any more?

    They would love that! And what if racist groups starting using the Nike swoosh, would they take that off their sneakers? Of course not - America hating hypocrites...

    A hate group already uses the rainbow flag.
