It turns out that it is illegal for people in the United Kingdom to fly the Union Jack. Such a law would be unthinkable in America, where many citizens proudly display Old Glory (and not just on Independence Day) as a symbol of what is best about this country: her freedom, her strength, her ideal that all people are created equal. But in the U.K., presumably for fear of offending the sensibilities of Muslims in their midst, the powers that be have made it a crime to do the same.
What can we say about a country that lacks the self-confidence and healthy patriotism to engage in such a small act of national pride on its own soil? Does such a state even have a future? Is it possible that the Islamization of a once-proud nation has already begun?
