I've seen flags hanging on houses/flapping on backs of trucks in worse shape than that, and by people who believe they're being patriotic. :/

I guess the way I see it is, the flag is a symbol, so treat it how you will with the understanding of how that symbol is being perceived. Somebody destroying a flag as part of a political statement or art? I get it. I think it can be extremely powerful and shouldn't be done just to be an ***hole, but I understand the intent behind the action. It's the people that display a flag with the intent to convey patriotism and have this sorry beat-to-shreds dirty fabric catching every belch from their tailpipe that bother me.
