They are selling a premium ship in the game that allows the image of our flag to be desecrated over and over in the game. This is both shameful AND illegal under US Law.
On June 22, 1942 Congress passed a joint resolution which was amended on December 22, 1942 to become Public Law 829; Chapter 806, 77th Congress, 2nd session. Exact rules for use and display of the flag (36 U.S.C. 173-178) as well as associated sections (36 U.S.C. 171) Conduct during Playing of the National Anthem) the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag, and Manner of Delivery were included.
The Supreme Court has given a pass to violations that fall under freedom of speech, but this is capitalism and greed. They only offer the flag camo in exchange for money. They claim to support US veterans, but this vet is highly offended that our flag is draped over a ship and decimated over and over in combat.
" The words "flag, standard, colors, or ensign", as used herein, shall include any flag, standard, colors, ensign, or any picture or representation of either, or of any part or parts of either, made of any substance or represented on any substance, of any size evidently purporting to be either of said flag, standard, colors, or ensign of the United States of America or a picture or a representation of either, upon which shall be shown the colors, the stars and the stripes, in any number of either thereof, or of any part or parts of either, by which the average person seeing the same without deliberation may believe the same to represent the flag, colors, standard, or ensign of the United States of America."
In addition, this same company has MANY rules that they expect players to abide by, including not using anything that can be found offensive as a name, or in chat. Anything that is racially or culturally offensive. YET, they perpetrate this act that any American should find offensive.
I am a veteran from 2 branches of the US armed forces. I will stand to protect freedom of speech, but that is not what this is. This is marketing. It is about selling a product for profit that violates US law and is an offense to any American with pride in their country.
