How exactly is that a political agenda? Do you even know what that term means? What motive was he advocating for what political policy?
Yes, I clearly see some heinous political agenda when the symbol of the United States - a symbol of freedom
- is shown after having won a battle to preserve freedom
; a battle fought by US citizens and military
; a battle fought on US soil
; in a major US city
that was laid to ruin by the bad guys
The American flag is synonymous with freedom, hope, and victory. Showcasing the victorious sides' flag after a battle or event is a world-renowned action, be it through imagery, waving, or physically placing the flag in enemy/new territory.
I really don't get this fad of hating any suggestion of pro-USA feelings or imagery that kids have today.
