Hillary Clinton was once a supporter of banning flag burning (in 2005).
According to The Political Insider Clinton’s flag burning law would have punished offenders with a $100,000 fine and up to a year in prison.
Unfortunately, this law was shot down by Congress in 2006, but footage has just surfaced of Clinton defending it.
“So I hope, Mr. President, that we can pass a law that criminalizes flag burning and desecration,” Clinton told Congress. “I agree that this burning, this desecration that can happen to our flag is something that people have a right to ask this body to try to prohibit and prevent.”
