Skip to comments.McCain Camp to ChastiseDems for Discarding American Flags
Posted on 09/06/2008 9:49:21 AM PDT by plangent
John McCains presidential campaign appears prepared to chastise Democrats over leaving behind piles of miniature American flags after Barack Obamas nomination acceptance speech last Thursday in Denver.
Boy Scouts reportedly have arrived with at least two dozen trash bags full of the flags at the site of a McCain rally scheduled to begin at 12:30 p.m. in Colorado Springs.

As I posted on another thread, this is a wonderful idea. Not the gross disrespect paid toward our national ensign, but the recycling of these flags and public embarassment of those disgusting jerks responsible.
People who have been immersed in the military culture view the flag completely differently from people who haven’t. He’s already got the military vote so making a big deal of the flag is not a good vote getter.

Too good Obama vs. The boy scouts mom and apple pie. Wait till the clingers find out he does not allow his kids to get Crismas presents. No I am not kidding. It is true.
It’s not about votes, it’s about respect.
So much for love of country from the socialist-alinsky O-bots.
I think you are incorrect. Let us return to the values of not too long ago before the leftist activists, where we loved our Country and respected the Flag of our Nation.
It will be a breath of fresh air. Remember how Reagan reignited our pride to be Americans?
Just another example of many Dims’ superficial and shallow patriotism.
Wow, this is a big time zing.
I hope they hand them out to people at the rally, after thoroughly sanitizing them of course. :p
Dumpster diving at its patriotic finest.
And yet what a shameful lack of couth and flag etiquette.
Old Glory deserves better than this.
AY TEAR her tattered ensign down!
Long has it waved on high,
And many an eye has danced to see
That banner in the sky;
Beneath it rung the battle shout,
And burst the cannon’s roar;
The meteor of the ocean air
Shall sweep the clouds no more.
Her deck once red with heroes’ blood,
Where knelt the vanquished foe,
When winds were hurrying o’er the flood,
And waves were white below,
No more shall feel the victor’s tread,
Or know the conquered knee;
The harpies of the shore shall pluck
The eagle of the sea!
Oh, better that her shattered hulk
Should sink beneath the wave;
Her thunders shook the mighty deep,
And there should be her grave;
Nail to the mast her holy flag
Set every threadbare sail,
And give her to the god of storms,
The lightning and the gale!
—Oliver Wendell Holmes
Before McCain steps off the stage he best make sure that at his rallies flags aren’t left behind for the clean up crews to take care.
Correct. The debate should be framed John and Sarah the Patriots vs. Obama and Biden citizens of the World.
I choose the Patriots.
Check out lormand’s work here:
Unbelievable.....massive cultural dissonance....who are these democrats ? And way is this election even close ?
Obama/Biden will claim the McCain/Palin team bought those flags. I hope they have video of the Boy Scouts who picked them up. The lying dems will lie about it and say....I believe this is their mantra.....”There is no evidence that these particular flags were disrespected in Denver. Prove it.”
” The campaign says the flags were recovered from Invesco Field after the Democrats concluded their convention there, and they are going to be used as part of the warm-up ceremonies before McCain takes the stage for the rally.”
McCain may have one of the best ground games ,ever.
His ads have been terrific.
This is a tremendous move.
Barry is the gift that keeps on giving.
It can never be said with a straight face that Obama loves apple pie ( he does not like any sweets, especially ice cream ..and he dislikes beer and dogs- the four legged kind , heck, he probably hates hot dogs , too ! ),
motherhood and the American flag.
Very good. Keep hitting the leftists where they’re weak. (”God bless America? No, no... God DAMN America...”)
