Vets Cry 'Disgrace' Over Obama-Spangled Banner
The flag in question:
An American flag with President Obama's image in place of the stars flew over a Florida county's Democrat headquarters long enough to enrage local veterans who called the altered banner "a disgrace."
Lake County Democratic Party officials took down the flag, which flew just below a standard Old Glory on the flagpole outside headquarters in Tavares following complaints by local veterans.But merely taking it down wasn't enough for several local veterans, who said they fought for the flag Betsy Ross made famous, not one with a politician on it.
I'm just trying to imagine the unholy s**tstorm that would have engulfed the country if GOP headquarters in FLA had displayed a flag with George W. Bush's likeness on it in 2004. Just imagine. You think that the only place we'd see the news would be on local stations and Fox? Doubtful...
What's sad is that the flag flew for months before anyone noticed it. I mean, I certainly don't expect Democrats to abide by the US Code for Respect for the Flag, but still.
The flag should never have placed upon it, nor on any part of it, nor attached to it any mark, insignia, letter, word, figure, design, picture, or drawing of any nature.
Countdown to charges of racism, inclusion in the Tea Party, reference to Teabaggers, or some combination thereof in 3... 2... 1...
That is all.
