Mike Rowe responds to critical fan: Our American flag is more than a ‘mere symbol’ – TheBlaze

Mike Rowe responds to critical fan: Our American flag is more than a ‘mere symbol’ – TheBlaze:

"“The thing about ‘mere symbols’ Susanne, is that they represent ‘mere ideas,’ and ‘mere ideas’ are the backbone of ‘mere humanity.’ In the case of the flag, we’re talking about ideas that are wrapped into the Constitution – a document that separates us from every other country on the planet,” Rowe added.

Those ideas, Rowe wrote, are the reason people “fight and die” and have many of the rights Americans get to enjoy, like free speech, carry guns and desecrate symbols that represent those freedoms."
