WILL WRONGLY SEPARATES FLAG ISSUE, FREE SPEECH

In regard to the flag-burning issue, George Will believes that our Founding Fathers did not equate "speech" with "symbolic expression". If that is true, what category does the Boston Tea Party fall under?

Americans used symbolism to express political ideas even before the Declaration of Independence was signed. And if flag burning isn't speech, then how could Mr. Will possibly be offended by it?
