You Don't Get To Complain When You Do Things Like This

In the news, Michelle Manhart was arrested for interfering with a protest during which a protestor walked on an American flag that was dropped on the ground.

But there is more to the story in that we have a backstory that shows Ms. Manhart is a bona fide, genuine, card-carrying Republican hypocrite:  http://reverbpress.com/news/michelle-manhart-posed-nude-with-flag/ and http://www.airforcetimes.com/story/military/2015/04/20/air-force-vet-scuffles-with-police-over-american-flag/26065769/

She's not up on her flag protocol either and frankly, if she can pose naked with the flag draped and falling on the floor for Playboy and PETA - for commercial gain and to advance her modeling career or whatever that was - then she forever gave up the right to bitch about people exercising their First Amendment rights, even when it includes protestors walking on our dropped flag.

Manhart fails to understand that both actions are covered under the first Amendment.  Her assaulting the protestors made her a hypocrite of the first water for her double-standard.  One, that because of her misconduct, by the way, got her thrown out of the Air Force.
