Skip to comments.Obama flag (poll to FReep) (get ready to spew)
Posted on 10/06/2009 2:52:11 PM PDT by digger48
This is a local UAW based rag, but they tend to have better local news coverage than the longtime Tribune.
This Obamanation was spotted on a street in Kokomo, IN
NOT A PHOTOSHOP!
I took this picture. I am the photographer for the Kokomo Perspective, the news source in question.
Just to be clear:
1. The flag is flying at a private residence.
2. We aren’t as Pro-UAW as you might think. However we do tend to be more liberal than the daily paper.
What I find unreal is that the membership of the UAW is going along with this. I mean the rank and file have to realize what is happening.
This is fascism 101.
Singing songs, hmm I wonder whether flying an Obama flag in Kokomo might provide some inspiration to the Freepers favorite alternative lyricist.
It looks like residence, not a building.
Thanks for the info.
I just reported this to ebay as being an offensive item. It's probably just peeing into the wind, I know, but maybe if a lot of people did the same...
“If private property the owner has the right, even if it is offensive.”
Then somebody should tell these guys that.
True, this is typical of the arrogance of the far left. When a dictator takes over they put themselves all over everything, even the official flag.
This man is a dictatator and we’ve had a communist coup. When are people going to understand this?
Why did you not report this to the authorities????
I am an ebay expert of sorts, been buying and selling for over 10 years...Just went back to the WND site and looked at the exact title of that auction and searched for it on ebay. Nothing. I even looked up the sellers name “onewickedclown” on ebay advanced search and found nothing. Which is odd that a seller with almost 10,000 feedback on ebay is now gone. Ebayers with that much feedbakc rely on their feedback (his was over 98%) and likely is a career ebayer, meaning his livlihood depends on it. SO the fact that he no longer exists is unusual.
The article (I would hardly call it a news article) states “Gellar’s website assured readers the image was “not a photoshop,” (Anyone who says that from the get-go is liekly lying) and in fact, WND found a now-ended sale on eBay offering the images for $4.99 plus $6.50 for postage. Despite the assurance that “more than 10” were available, the sale was abruptly ended this weekend. “
If WND found an ended auction, why do they not reference the auction number which stays available 30 days after an auction has ended? You can still see ended itmes if you have the auction number.
Personally, i think its a made up news article. there is no proof of anything they claim in the article. And while I wouldnt put it past anyone to do this, I also dont put it past WND to post anything they think would be news worthy, true or not. ... And while I am a 912-er and a Freeper and no fan of the left, I do think WND is a POOR source of news for anyone.
If you site WND to anyone on the left to prove anything to them, thats about like someone on the left siting Micheal Moore to us on the right to convince us of the truth.
Sorry, I know I am new here and I know that will step on some toes. Think for yourself, dont let WND or a blogger do it for you.
Moral of the story. Do ones own research. Even if more reputable news sites tell you something. You cant trust much of anyone these days.
The flag looks “Charmin.”
Ah, found the item number 390080162883
lol, sorry folks
LOL it is also worth noting that this same ebay seller sells this “Buck Farack” patch (Which I like):
and this “One Big @$$ Mistake America” patch:
He is a capitalist, pure and simple.
mmm mmm mmm mmm
What WND story? I got the picture of the flying flag from a local paper and their website. The photographer who took the picture, posted on this thread and confirmed it.
>This man is a dictatator and weve had a communist coup. When are people going to understand this?<
When it is too late to do squat about it.
Then they will again blame the republican party for not stopping it
Only useful if flown at half-mast.
