i found it really hard to believe that people are that pro America. I mean sure, you can be patriotic and all, butno one from any country can stand there and say that their country is perfect. And I'm guessing the art student was trying to express her negative views on America today. America has a lot of problems like any country.

gee, who to pick... the art student who tries to make a point in the cheapest, most overdone way possible, or the addled senior citizen veteran who still doesn't understand what he fought to defend.

people are stupid.

It's called performance art, and it is a legitimate art form. This video is disgraceful in its biased, one-sided portrayal of the piece and I for one would like to see the artists' statement about what point she's trying to make. Ultimately, I think it's completely ridiculous that we make such a big deal about a piece of cloth while we're ignoring the destruction of so many much more meaningful parts of our country. There's a reason free speech is covered in the First Amendment.

Just because you are left-wing doesn't mean that you don't have respect for the flag. Those people who were standing on it are trying to be rebellious for no apparent reason.

there exists a difference of opinion between those who see a problem with this and those who don't.

creating and placing the art in this way makes people talk about the differences.

debate is surely a good thing.

I think you fail to realize what the point of this piece of art is....art is created to raise controversy. An example many of us might be familiar with is Picasso's art that went from realistic, to boxes and triangles...

Nice to see people respecting their country tho doesn't exist here much anymore. But then again I prefer it with a Union Jack in the corner instead of those stars :P!

The piece was probably done by some attention starved kid who feels the easiest way to feel like they're being paid any attention at all is through shock value...

They want people to stop and say
"OH MY! Who could do such a thing?!"
This is what they feed off of.

I understand doing something in demonstration...but who is this helping or benefiting.

Wow.

I think this demonstrates that people would rather shock and outrage people, than respect. Stupid.

That's a pretty cool art project. A blatant example of the cultural shift from right wing to far left. Even at the expense of the broken heart of anyone who isn't left wing.

Cool video. Props to the old guy for the balls, props to the artist for the balls.
