THE STORY FROM ABC IN DENVER
As many of you have heard, there is a flag controversy between the Republicans and the DemocRATS. The RNC is claiming that it save about 12,000 Americans flags leftover from Invesco Field in Denver. The claim is that they were headed for the dumpster.
The DemocRATS are claiming that the flags were "stolen" and never intended for the dumpster. They claim that they were in storage and were either to be used again or donated.
If 12,000 flags were stolen, I would think that a police report would have been filed.
In a preliminary contact with the Denver Police, I was transferred to an officer in the communications department. She knew of no police report for the theft of such flags, but she referred me to the Public Information Officer, whom I will attempt to call on Monday.
That is the latest on the story. We will let you know the status after the discussion with the PIO.
i was driving to san diego today and roger ‘cussed this one.
what dynamite! placed in the right ad-making hands, the dems could lose some votes!
Didn’t Drudge have a picture last week from Invesco of garbage cans filled with flags ?
Those are nice flags and were probably worth several thousand dollars. If they were taken from storage, someone should be arrested. If they were found by a dumpster, the RATS need to pay big time.
check with the Solid Waste Dept see if the green party called for a recycling pick up
I am confused were US Flag that Demos threw away if so that mess up or what really happen
I AM SO CONFUSED
I was going to ask this exact question on another thread earlier today but got distracted. Good for you Doug!
DemonRats are not liars because they lie, they lie because they’re liars!
We are all somewhat confused and waiting for the full story. Supposedly, they were found near a dumpster and not in storage for safekeeping. Did someone break into storage and steal them? We don’t know yet. CBS is calling it a bogus story because they are taking the RAT spin on it.
"The flag should never touch anything beneath it, such as the ground, the floor, water, or merchandise."
"The flag should never be fastened, displayed, used, or stored in such a manner as to permit it to be easily torn, soiled, or damaged in any way."
"The flag, when it is in such condition that it is no longer a fitting emblem for display, should be destroyed in a dignified way, preferably by burning."
FROM YOUR UPDATE LINK: they were on a loading dock for a week and a day and no one was coming to get them.
UPDATE I: I just spoke with the person at Invesco who found the flags and he thinks both sides are exaggerating a bit. The person claims the majority of the bags with flags in them were near the trash, on a dock, and would have been thrown away. The person thinks it was probably an oversight by the Democrats rather than any nefarious plot against the flag. But the person doesnt believe anyone was coming to get them: The flags were there for a week and a day and no one came looking for them.
I think the whole world now knows the democrats have been lying all along.
those pictures show exactly they were left for trash.
The Dems are lying again and no doubt the usual media will be either trying to ignore the story or go with the Dem and Obama lie
1. the flags were found in the venue. I don't think the Dims rented the venues a week after the convention.
2. If they were in the storage, how could the boyscouts got their hands on the flags?
3. The vendors claimed that the flags were next to the dumpster, and there are many pics showing that, indeed, the Dims threw (at least some of) the flags.
The Dims didn't realize that their property were 'stolen'? And, as this thread suggests, they didn't file any report to the police?
I am eagerly awaiting the Democrats to provide proof. We all know they will be very cooperative in proving that the flags were stolen and will be pressing charges. Because we all know demoRATS wouldn’t lie about something of this nature.
At minimum they were disrespected per Section 176 above. But then, libscum have no respect for this country; why would they respect her flag?
The MSM has pretty much ignored this story.
They are all in Alaska interviewing the 9,000 residents of Wasilla for one disgruntled citizen who will make headlines for the next several days.
