Elon Musk Has a Simple Solution for People Who Replace American Flags with Another Country’s

Billionaire entrepreneur and X owner Elon Musk had a simple suggestion for anyone who would replace an American flag with the flag of another country: a one-way ticket to visit the country in question.

Musk shared a poll via X on Thursday, asking how many would support such a policy going forward.

“Proposed law: if someone tears down the American flag and puts up another flag in its place, that person should get a free (but mandatory) one-way trip to that flag’s country,” he said, adding one small caveat: “I’m not saying they can’t come back, but they have to experience that country for some period of time before returning.”

By the time the final results of the poll posted on Friday morning, the overwhelming response to his proposition was positive. After 1.5 million X users voted in Musk’s poll, nearly 1.2 million of them (79.9%) said they would support such a policy. Just under 300,000 (20.1%) said they would not support his proposal.

Musk’s poll comes as students on multiple college campuses have either attempted to or succeeded in efforts to replace American flags with Palestinian flags during widespread anti-Israel protests.

On some campuses, those efforts have been met with resistance from other students. At University of North Carolina’s Chapel Hill campus, a small group of fraternity boys stood between the anti-Israel protesters and their objective, holding the American flag over their heads and keeping it from touching the ground — even as protesters shouted profanities and threw things at them.

UNC student and Pi Kappa Phi brother Guillermo Estrada explained, “My fraternity brother and others ran over to hold it up, in order for it not to touch the ground.

People began throwing water bottles at us, rocks, sticks, calling us profane names. We stood for an hour defending the flag so many fight to protect.”

    So if I take down the American Flag and put up the Irish flag, I get to go to Ireland?

    While this law could do wonders, it would be horribly abused.
