    Don’t tread on this flag.

    That’s the message Air Force veteran and former Playboy model Michelle Manhart says she was trying to convey by picking up a damaged flag that protesters had been stomping on in a demonstration at Valdosta State University in southern Georgia on Friday.

    But before she could spirit the flag away, police officers intervened to return the Old Glory to the protesters who were trampling it and escort Manhart off the premises, according to a video of the incident Manhart has posted to Facebook.

    The video shows her walking away with the flag briefly as police converge. Manhart, who is white, and the protestors, all of whom are African-American, jaw at one another in the taped incident.

    “You enslaved our people,” one of the demonstrators says. “You put us in this white supremacist place. And you’re stealing our flag now.”

    A protester also grabs on to the flag’s pole in an attempt to claim it back, but the demonstrators eventually give way as three cops wrestle Manhart to the ground in the footage.

    “We gave you a lawful command to let go of this flag, m’am,” one police officer tells Manhart. “This flag does not belong to you.”

    The officers handcuff her and give the flag back to the applauding demonstrators. But Manhart calls one of the cops a “spiny piece of s---” before being led away to a police cruiser in the video.

    Neither the demonstrators nor the police decided to press charges against Manhart, but she did receive a campus trespass warning that bars her from campus activities, university spokesman Andy Clark told The Valdosta Daily Times.

    A defiant Manhart told the local newspaper that she’s planning her own event to show support for the military and the Stars and Stripes on Wednesday. She said she doesn’t approve of Supreme Court rulings that protect flag trampling and flag burning as free speech under the First Amendment, according to the Daily Times.

    When you desecrate our flag, you forfeit any claims of ownership.

    I love America as much as anyone. I can't see ever leaving. My favorite part of this country is my FREEDOMS.
    It's just a piece of cloth, people. I realize it has significant meaning and all that, but it's just a piece of cloth.
    If these moron want to stomp it, then it's their right AS AMERICANS to do so.
    I don't like seeing it, but I'd never want to stifle the 1st amendment

    Ask any vet or anyone that has fought for this country if it is "just a piece of cloth".

    For me it is not a piece of cloth. People trash the flag to offend others, with really no other benefit. The fact that the 1st amendment protects their ability to do this is a level of irony totally lost on these neanderthals.

    I think it is very clear immigrants built America. Where I really have a problem is when immigrants come, and either are outspoken in their hatred of America, or try to turn America into whatever shithole they came from.

    This country is not perfect, and there are many ways to drive change. However, if you are not that happy here, just leave. Maybe go back to the awesome country you were born in.
