I Pledge Allegiance... to Obama?
GOPUSA.com ^ | March 14, 2012 | Bobby Eberle

This really takes the cake! It's one thing if you're a left-wing Democrat and you support Barack Obama, but it's quite another thing to replace the Stars and Stripes with Obama and Stripes. That's right... that's what local Democrats did in Florida. They replaced the stars on the U.S. flag with an image of Obama. What is happening to this country?

As Fox News reports, "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.

"It's absolutely disrespectful," Jim Bradford, a 71-year-old veteran who participated in the Bay of Pigs Invasion told FoxNews.com. "It's totally ridiculous. To put somebody's picture there, to me, it's a disgrace to do that."

Oh, and here's the kicker... the Obama flag was made in China! What a fitting touch.

The local newspaper covering the story quotes Nancy Hurlbert, the chairwoman of the Lake County Democratic Party, as saying, "We were given this as a gift. We are proud of our president, we're proud of the United States, and we felt it was time to display that."

Korean War veteran Don Van Beck of Tavares spearheaded the veterans' visit to the Lake County Democratic Headquarters, where he was joined by a dozen veterans and media on the front steps of the Main Street building.

"There are laws against desecrating the flag," Van Beck said, right before he read out loud the federal flag code, public law 344, section 4G to Hurlbert: "The flag should never have placed upon it or any part of it, any marks, insignia, letters, words, figures, designs, picture or drawings of any nature. We would like to ask you to take it down please."

Hurlbert told Van Beck that she wanted to look up the code first.

"Well, we're here. I'll take it down for you," the veteran said.

"No, this is private property. You're not allowed to touch anything. I'll call the police," Hurlbert said.

To Nancy Hurlbert and the other Democrats in Lake County... are you really that crazy? Didn't it occur to ANYONE there that this is the United States of America and NOT the United States of Obama? It's a sad state of affairs when absolutely nothing left-wingers do surprises me any more.

I don't know which is more depressing: the fact the Flag is being desecrated or the fact that I am no longer surprised about how low these lib animals or their Fuhrer will sink.

This was my third post ever on FR to a smart-mouthed Obama troll. Little did I know my made-up on the spot snarky response would be so foretelling!

I pledge allegiance
To no flag
But to the Obama Nation
And to the Socialist experiment
For which it stands
One nation
With no God
Totally divided
Where liberty
And Justice
Will fall.

those doubts were laid to rest by Barack Obama’s magisterial speech today. A speech in which he distanced himself from a flawed father figure, Reverend Wright, and did so with almost Shakespearian dignity and honor.

"Almost" Shakespearian. It actually reached all the way up to Pee Wee Herman level.

That’s dammed SICK!!! (if I write what I’m thinking I’d most certainly be banned, and or possibly arrested/put on a .gov shit list)

... He’s such a little bitch of a “man”. I wish his supporters would move on and find another country to ruin.

Obama is a National Socialist

Liberals have become so crass, so ignorant of history, and so idealogically blinded that we can now call them “National Socialists” without them realizing that we just painted them as NAZIs.

We called Obama a socialist because he definitely is one. We’ve been countered with, “What’s wrong with socialism?”

Now we can simply call them National Socialists. They don’t even KNOW we’ve just called them NAZIs. Give it a try and see how it plays. Report back on this thread for others to learn.

Periodically, when I find myself surrounded by liberals, I have thrown out the blurb that “what we need to do is combine nationalism with socialism and form a national socialist party.” I used to do it just to see how many giggles I’d get, then I started doing it to see if ANYONE would notice what I just promoted. Now what I get is, “That’s a good idea”.

See for yourself, give it a try.

Yes, that's the point. Americans who MEAN well have fallen for the emotional aspect which creates nationalist socialism...... black power/minority based nationalism and redistribution of wealth socialism.

Its minority nationalist socialist view is now promoted in our culture, and people just accept it as "cool." ( eg. "That's 'dope' man, used on American Idol, conveys the coolness and the acceptance of the mark of this nationalist socialism, and other minorities say , you slam dunked it like "Vladimir" ( Putin) , man!(sic))

I am growing a very huge garden of disrespect for these media manipulators as well.They are working overtime to convert America away from individual freedom and the Constitution.

We must rid ourselves of these demagogues now in our government and in our public media, down to the last man and woman. They need to be relegated to the history bin of infamy.

If China made the one, they made at least 10,000. You can bet your ass on it. Somewhere in this country is a warehouse, office, home or ghetto crack house holding them for the opportune time. Count on it.
