This surely was the tweet of the day:
Of course, our readers know that flag burning is protected speech - see Texas v. Johnson and United States v. Eichman. It certainly isn't the basis for "loss of citizenship." For any non-immprof readers out there, let me take a moment to note that the vast majority if U.S. citizens cannot "lose" their citizenship. Only naturalized citizens are at risk for denaturalization and flag burning isn't one of the very limited circumstances that might trigger such extreme consequences.
