Others, especially those around the world (that are allowed to do so) have no qualms protesting against symbols of their own Govt or country when it is failing it’s citizens, or there is an inequality perceived to be taking place with no-little appetite for change.
You are not going to understand this, but America is different. Here you don’t protest the National Anthem or burn the flag.
The raising of awareness for a cause is one of the first and most important steps in the long, slow and difficult road to implementing change. Media suppression or censorship certainly does not help that.
raising awareness in such a shitty way does not inspire me to help them.
