Occupy Oakland protestors burn an American flag found inside Oakland City Hall during an Occupy Oakland protest on the steps of City Hall Saturday night. Jan 29, 2012

This is disgusting. A wise man once said "If you want a symbolic gesture, don’t burn the flag, wash it." That was Norman Thomas, one of the most prominent American socialists of our time and one hell of a man. 

Also I want to point out that this image panders to a lost and pissed off group of people with no idea as to how they should deal with their feelings and no idea how government works.
