Is there a guy close at hand with a fire extinguisher in case this moron accidentally sets fire to a tree?

Then yes, it is free speech.

But set fire to the Rainbow flag and see what happens...

That would be vandalism or destruction of private/public property. Presumably, the guy in the picture is burning his own flag, not somebody else's. So there is no crime.

But, however distasteful, it is free speech, provided the flag is his own.
