What’s This Flag, Obama: Conspiracy?

Controversy has arisen over the flag President Obama has begun selling on his barackobama 2012 election campaign store. The flag, which looks like the American flag except with the Obama logo and five red stripes instead of the usual 50 stars and 7 red stripes. The red stripes on the Obama flag don't look straight, but rather like smudges of paint. The similarity of the five red stripes to five bloody fingerprints on a wall has created conspiracy theories and controversy.

The blogger "We the People of the United States" (WPOTUS) outlined a few of the conspiracy theories in his blog entry "What’s This Flag, Obama?" (aka "WTF, OBAMA??!!!!!").

Michelle Malkin posted some tweets of people comparing Obama's flag to the blood stains in Benghazi, Libya, where Islamic supremacists assassinated the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans.

I don't believing the artists Ross Bruggink and Dan Olson of Studio MPLS designed the Obama flag with the Benghazi blood stains in mind. I don't know the timing of the artists' creating the Obama flag, but it appeared on the website for the first time in September 2012 -- the same month as the Benghazi attack.

WTF, OBAMA??!!!!! What’s This Flag, Obama? The Obama campaign is selling a flag that they call “our stripes”. Many suspect that they understand the subliminal symbolism of this new flag.

    WTF? What the Flag?
    No conspiracy, just an irreverent and disgustingly disrespectful slam on Old Glory and our American heritage, history and sacrifice from the bowels of Obamunism.

    Some other adjectives that come to mind are contemptuous, insulting, rude, cheeky, irreverent, impolite, impudent, discourteous, uncivil, and ill-bred.

    That's Obama for you.

    I think he is going to be in for a rude awakening come November.
    1) He's ticked off black evangelicals b/c of his support of LGBT
    2) He's ticked off the legal hispanics b/c of his support of illegal aliens
    3) He's ticked off the geriatrics by gutting Medicare
    4) He's ticked off the catholics b/c of the birth control mandate
    5) And he has now ticked off the veterans, maybe not a high majority of the veterans, but probably a high majority of the geriatric veterans who served during WW2 and the geriatric crowd I would think would be the age group of people who are most likely to get out and vote by this muslim countries fiasco and turning the Flag into this.
    He's running out of demographics to tick off...

    Maybe that's what he had the Stars and Stripes replaced with on AF One? Or the one he plans to fly over the WH after his "re-election" and he declares himself "King" or whatever title he plans to take? Bloody fingerprints would be appropriate in a way; since he's SO on board with UN Agenda 21, which aims to reduce the total global population to about 1/2 billion individuals.

    Well, Dave's top opinion says it all. Its a disgusting sight to see. We all know that Obama thinks that our Flag is to militaristic. And that it should be replaced. Just as he thinks the Star Spangled Banner should be replaced with something like I want to teach the world to sing,.

    Just don't inhale the fumes from the flag when you burn it: synthetic fabrics almost always produce toxic gasses while burning.

    That's sure one hell of a coincidence. It is nauseating to me, after the events on 9/11 whether it is conspiracy or coincidence. It's just wrong, and eerily creepy.
  • gocar 2012/09/21 19:24:12
    Malkin makes money by being off the wall like Palin. These ladies have found clients for their madness. Americans are far to hung up over a piece of bunting. I saw in a store some dish cloths which were the Union Jack and I have even seen toilet paper that looks like the Union Jack. What are we going to start a war over it? Who cares, It's only a flag. When men actually fought on the battlefields they used the flag to see where their own troops were or to avoid sinking their own ships. People can get so hung up on this stuff and that is all it is STUFF.

    Do you KNOW the words to the Pledge of Allegiance? That flag is more than a MARKER for troops and ships; it also told our guys in combat that they WEREN'T defeated ! And it STANDS for the Republic! It's IMPORTANT; not something "insignificant" to those of us who have served this nation!

    If Obama is re-elected this may be the last presidential election.
    Notice how the fifty states have been removed for the single symbol of the Obama administration.
    Look familiar?

    Look at all the dolts who are acting like no one ever used the American flag for a campaign novelty before, OH WAIT, THERE ARE MILLIONS OF THEM

    Like this one, on sale for $10 on EBAY: acting american flag campaign novelty wait millions sale 10 ebay

    Oh, and GWB wrote on the American flag: novelty wait millions sale 10 ebay gwb wrote american flag

    It's a campaign gimmick, which has been done a thousand times beforehand, and none of you wankers bitched your tits off then.
  • Boo luke 2012/09/21 19:40:36

    Conspiracy is a bit strong a word for what is happening, but it is planned and not a coincidence.

    To what end is the purpose of this is the question that needs to be answered. That answer may indicate conspiracy or it may just Obama's traditional lack of respect and disdain for the US and everything associated with the US.

    Taken in context with all the other right wing propaganda you've been posting lately, it doesn't seem unreasonable to assume that this is more of the same.

    At the very least, by putting this stuff out there you're perpetuating the right wing hate machine.

    I know you don't agree with the President's politics and policies. That's not the issue. The issue is that you're stirring up hatred by pretending these things are credible and worth talking about. Politicians use patriotic imagery, particularly in election years. The only reason the poster in question is an issue is because right wing hate mongers insist on making it one.

    I agree; it's most likely not a conspiracy; just more of his incredible insensitivity showing toward the American people, particularly the military, veterans and survivors of 9/11, and the families of those who didn't survive, as well as to the families of those four who died this year!
  • Odinsown 2012/09/21 14:29:58
    WTF? What the Flag?
    It was likely designed well before the September attacks and as far as I am concerned is right up there with the "dont tread on me" it is just a way for a person to express thier ideology.
  • mimi 2012/09/21 13:41:09
    The American Flag is a long-honored tradition that represents a "free" country, among many other representations. Anyone, Obama INCLUDED, that wants to desecrate it like the Obama admin has; should be tried and jailed. Personally, I think they should be sent to the Jihads who treat our flag just like this admin does!

    It's not a flag, it's a poster.
