    Nothing...the US Military takes an Oath to Defend the Constitution, not interpret it.

    The US Supreme Court decided in 1989 that Flag Burning falls under Free Speech.

    Texas v. Johnson, 491 U.S. 397 (1989), was a decision by the Supreme Court of the United States that invalidated prohibitions on desecrating the American flag enforced in 48 of the 50 states. Justice William Brennan wrote for a five-justice majority in holding that the defendant Gregory Lee Johnson's act of flag burning was protected speech under the First Amendment to the United States Constitution. Johnson was represented by attorneys David D. Cole and William Kunstler.

    That would depend on the law of the land where it happened since American troops cannot be used inside the United States.

    You mean like walking out on the Grinder in front of a battalion of military in formation............... probably nothing except that you get escorted off base.

    if you do it on a city street with your BLM bros, it might get taken from you forcefully and have you be used as the means of putting it out.

    BTW- your flogging your You-Tube channel on every answer you give is a violation of Terms of Service.

    I was a Marine for six years. I would nod to their freedom of speech. They can do that. It's fine.
