Skip to comments.Obama Lowers Flags to Half Mast for CO Massacre: Ft. Hood - Not so Fast!
Posted on 07/20/2012 9:19:28 PM PDT by maggiesnotebook
When 14 persons (one unborn), most of them military personnel on the base at Ft. Hood, Texas, were murdered by Islamic terrorist and U.S. Military Colonel Nidal Hasan, America's flags were not lowered to half mast until the next day. Today, by at least 2:30 pm EDT, the order came down from on high to lower our flags in a sign of mourning for the victims of today's shootings inside an Aurora Colorado movie theatre showing the much awaited Batman: The Dark Knight Rises.
In the case of Ft. Hood, Obama had to be bullied into the national gesture of mourning by Texas patriot, Anita Ross:
FYI the White House/staff had no intention of lowering the flags in fact, early Friday AM after the closet Muslim terrorist had finished his atrocity against Army warriors, the flags were raised to full staff.In the meantime, Liberal press has already erroneously reported that today's shooter, James E. Holmes was a member of a Colorado TEA Party. He wasn't. Then ABC corrected the story with no apology, and later issued an apology.
Anita burned up the phone lines in D.C. and in Texas Congressmen/women Governor Perrys office White House all heard from her as she assaulted the arrogance of the clueless bureaucrats who mostly despise our military demanding that honor be shown by lowering the flags.
She was stonewalled, ignored, shunned everywhere but in Texas.
When it became obvious that the Liar-in-Chief and his team were completely ignorant, insensitive and insipid toward the atrocity (not tragedy) at Ft. Hood Read the rest of the story at Pam Geller's
Don't misunderstand my meaning here. Flags should be lowered when the President decides they should be lowered, but his attitude toward the Ft. Hood killings continues to appall. Read my continuing ongoing reports on today's shooting here.

The Mulato Muslim Marxist doesnt give a chit about the military, that’s why! (SPIT)
What was the ethnicity/race of the majority of the Fort Hood victims? The Colorado victims? Just asking.
Move over, Trayvon - we got us a bigger gun story to fry
When the Fort Hood massacre occurred an election was not on the immediate horizon.
Colorado Batman shooting shows obvious signs of being staged
CBA Just announced that the Colorado shooter is in Fact,
a registered Democrat and a close Friend to Eric Holder..
He also sent a Happy Birthday Card to Nancy Pelosi and thanked her for Her “good advice”....
see. How easy it is to start a LIE. this is the Goal of The Media Scum.
This is trending toward making the gesture as irrelevant as the Nobel Prize , a Pulitzer or an Oscar.
No offense taken here- I always took it to be a matter of State; a national issue of remembrance or the death of someone who gave their life or lifetime of service to the Republic.
This was a crime by a demonically possessed freak.
Obama has no sense of protocol, and is advised by clowns with no sense of service to country or loyalty thereto.
Just think.. if we lowered it every time 14 died in a Chicago shooting we’d never be able to raise it to the top.
I agree. When I looked at the etiquette behind this, there are certain holidays, Memorial Day and Veterans Day and when a President or Governor wants to do so.
Remember Christie lowering it for Whitney Houston?
I do think it should have been done for Ft. Hood.
He wasn’t in ‘campaign’ mode then, just ‘paying back his bro’s’ mode then.
This is crazy anti gun theater by Barack Obama, nothing more.
Why doesn’t the flag dip every time Chicago racks up 14 murders?
Keep your outrage next to your heart. Vote your outrage in November. Get rid of every Dem scum sucking pig!
I second that emotion.
right on track as usual
I bet he wanted to lower it for Trayvon.
It’s just his socialist “teachable moments” doncha know?
