Democratic Party Head Removes Obama Fag Veterans Termed 'Desecration'

TAVARES — A flag depicting an image of President Barack
Obama
was taken down from Lake County Democratic
Party
headquarters today after several veterans complained it was a
"desecration."


A short confrontation at the Democratic office ended when party chairwoman
Nancy Hurlbert took down the controversial flag, which had been flying under an
American flag on the same flagpole.

    I think it is showing immense disrespect for the U.S. flag to alter it in any way. Also, I have mixed feelings about the image of the flag being used in clothing, bandanas, etc .
  • DuncanONeil 2012/03/16 23:50:12
    Illegal. The DNC should know better.
    DuncanONeil
    USC › Title 4 › Chapter 1 › § 8
    4 USC § 8 - RESPECT FOR FLAG

    US Code

    (g) 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.

    (i) The flag should never be used for advertising purposes in any manner whatsoever.

    Clearly NOT legal!

    Maybe. Flag desecration is only OK for libs.

    It's a disgusting display of how Obama feels about this country, if he had his way, he would change the voting laws so that he could become the dictator he so wants to be. The vets have every right to be outraged! I'm sure if the other side had done something like this....for example, but Bush's pic on the flag, then all hell would have broke loose. But since the moronic Obama did it, it'll be okay and the idiots will defend anything and everything Obama does.

    Left-wing, lib, Progressive, pseudo-Dems - they are the poster children of the desecration of just about anything American.

    Sad, so sad that the dumb masses actively support what is going to ultimately be their own worst enemy and they just refuse to see it.

    They have the protection of the media. They can do as they please & brainwash the folks with plenty of help from the media, Hollywood & libs.

    I am a liberal democrat and I do not desecrate the flag. I have corrected people putting flags, folded, directly, on the ground at a memorial sites, I have seen that a few times, even at a fire station, once.

    However, in America a person is allowed to not have respect for the flag, that is why we are not still England.

    On an official building, it does not make sense to have an altered flag, I don't understand that issue, but it seems to depend on the stae you are in what will be accepted.
    also relax.

    You are the exception IMO.

    Those to which I refer in my comment are the norm.

    And I am VERY relaxed.

    But, thanks for the concern.

    Last year the Obama Administration decriminalized flag desecration. It is a form of expression of free speach according to them.

    But you can't speak freely in the area around an elected official anymore - since it is now law.

    Multiple issues here, but:
    The "Obama flag" is neither legal nor illegal, but is not desecration in any way. It's merely a banner that has no more official meaning than the McDonald's restaurant flag.
    The DNC did nothing wrong in displaying it, as the US flag was flown with prominence.
    The veterans had no reason to be outraged. If they were the least bit patriotic, they would have been aware of all of the above, as well as a little thing we refer to as the First Amendment. They must have been conservatives.

    You have a point.

    If the tables were reversed & the GOP did this...how would the media react.

    I don't recall much reaction at all, which is a good example of the hypocrisy.
    But as you yourself say, there are two sets of rules: one for cons who get away with doing and saying whatever they want, and another for liberals who get screamed at and trampled on at the first hint of them trying the same thing.

    Veterans all over this country have a right to be outraged. It is definitely the Star spangled Banner with a picture of a Muslim on it. How many years and wars did you serve in? I'm a veteran and I am outrged by this display. Obama must be voted out of office.

    Well Mr. Veteran, where was the outrage from you and veterans all over this country when your fellow veterans and Tea Party supporters were violating assorted US Title 4 Codes, such as § 8(d): "The flag should never be used as wearing apparel...."?

    I don't know if it's legal or illegal but it is a show of disrespect from the narcissistic lying jackass Obama. He should be ashamed but he has no shame, honor, or conscience, it's all about him all the time. Obama is a disgrace. NOBAMA in 2012!

    Wait...I'm sorry - I thought the question was whether the flag was legal. The complaint was legal too...I think that it was a good call to take it down but I don't see the legal obligation.

    Technically, it would likely be illegal.

    However, the laws in question don't carry any punitive provisions, as the SC has ruled this a violation of free speech.

    The Obama Administration & the Supreme Court passed a resolution last year declaring flag burning not to be a crime. Is expression of freedoms of speach.
