Skip to comments.McCain Camp to Chastise Dems for Discarding American Flags (in trash)
Posted on 09/06/2008 10:10:31 AM PDT by Behind Liberal Lines
John McCains presidential campaign prepared to chastise Democrats Saturday over leaving behind piles of miniature American flags after Barack Obamas nomination acceptance speech last Thursday in Denver.
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.
a vendor at Invesco Field found the flags, which were going to be thrown out, and turned them over to the McCain campaign.
Veterans in Colorado Springs are expected to distribute the flags to the audience at the rally.

Damn. Not only the right thing to do. But a good political move as well.
Not according to a title search for the word “chastise”.
Will any network, other than FOX, pick up on this?
I see the problem, sorry.
I have a question for some patriots here. I have a flag that I used to fly off the side of my home, but it is now faded and torn, and I am keeping it in my garage. How does one properly dispose of it?
I’d check with the local VFW or American Legion. They typically have flag disposal cermonies a once or twice a year
The also are financial idiots.
Excess inventory like this is sold off all the time. Any “dollar store” could have sold them off in a heartbeat.
Dems learn to waste money in campaigns, and continue the process in DC.
Democrats are not for the country they are for themselves, only.
Great. About time. I’ll bet every Girl Scout who was ever in a troop I led cringed when they saw Old Glory just dumped in trash bins.
The Democrats ought to be totally ashamed of themselves!
You have to burn it. I’ve done that before. I played the Star Spangled Banner and buried the ashes.
Check with a local Boy Scout troop in your area. They have ceremonies to properly dispose of worn flags. They will take care of it for you.
you can take it to your local vfw post and they will Properly dispose of flag.Great Story they should make a commerical with that ,no lapel pin,no hand on hear during pledge,and flag removed from the chosen ones plane.GIVE EM HELL JOHN!

The two nominees of the Democratic party (and the delegates to their national convention)...
...have NO use for our great country's traditions, our culture, our way of life, and the flag that represents these.
They are the opposite and reciprocal of "patriotic", which is why they bristle so when we question their patriotism.
I dare say McCain’s crew lurks FR. This story showed up on FR right after the DNC.
Burn it, bury it, or take it to your local VFW for proper disposal.
Oh, not the Obambi! His 19-month campaign is evidence of his executive experience. He'd NEVER waste millions of dollars on a meaningless spectacle.
Evil Boy Scouts and the Evil McCain and Palin are causing more trouble for the hate America Scumbags known as DemocRats.
Every anti American act, word or action by these vile hate Americans should be exposed for those who don’t hate America.
First time I see it. Glad it’s posted.
McCain-Palin needs to stand up for Old Glory. Those stupid Democrats proved the view flag just like we view those Greek collumns at Investco Field - As a stage prop. Shame on them.....But look for the Obama-Plugs people to accuse the Republicans of “wraping themselves up in the flag.” To which we should respond, “Hell yeah! We love our flag!”
Bwahahahahahaha. This is going to be good. I bet the MSM buries this story real deep.
Liberals use the American flag as a prop. Sorta like the big foam finger worn at sporting events. It’s just a colorful piece of cloth to wave in the air while cheering for your candidate. Nothing more.
