Stay classy Obamatons.
The New York Times reports: "Over 300 workers with brooms marched alongside vacuum trucks that looked like Zambonis, all plowing through more than 100 tons of paper, plastic water bottles, newspapers, food wrappers and hundreds of tiny American flags left behind."
Trampling American flags into the ground during an inauguration is now the highest form of patriotism.
Shhh. It’s not patriotic to criticize Obama supporters.
Why should they need American flags anymore? They won.
Post of the day!
Are you a racist for criticizing Obama and his supporters?
Obama supporters equate American flags as a symbol of all that is wrong with the world.......According to these know-it-alls,America is the primary reason for the every problem on earth......of course that’s why the live in the good ole US and not North Korea
what’s an american flag compared to the international socialist movement?
Hopefully, all of the flags being trampled on are the ‘bogus’ ones that Zero defaced by putting his image on them. Those don’t count.
They did this at the convention in Denver. So it’s not surprising. Our flag should be treated with respect. It’s our flag!!!
One wonders what the left will trash, once the nation they loathe is gone, the flag they love to burn, deface, and walk on has no homeland.
When it is their mothers, fathers, sisters, and brothers who are being taken out and shot, who will defend them?
At that point they will either act as if they loved the former nation they helped to destroy, or they will be betraying them too, and helping to round them up for the kill.
Like anyone is surprised by this behavior? Democrats have been doing this for years. And no I am not joking.
And the Republican team was said to have retrieved them for use at Palin’s rally the following day.
“They weren’t trashed, they were there to be picked up later and the r1ght wing boy scouts stole them!”
Oops, that was our excuse last time after the convention...
The trashing of the Mall and DC will not be shown by the MSM until after the March for Life.
If I had a flag that I’d waved at such an occasion, I’d treasure it forever.
Happened in Denver too!
Get used to it.
remember the hippies?
He’ll trample on the Constitution, his supporters trample on the American flag.
They have a symbiotic relationship.
Ever since they started printing American flags on postage stamps that get licked, cancelled with black ink, and discarded along with the envelopes they are affixed to, the flag has been desecrated.
As the US government through the Postal Service started that practice, it probably made it more likely that the SCOTUS declared flag burning to be no big deal.
there is a difference between the flag and an image of the flag. an image of our flag on a stamp, shirt, poster, etc, is not an actual flag. these images do not have to be treated with the same care as the flag.
unfortunately, the disrespectful way that theses people have treated our flag is not surprising. they treat our country like garbage too.
The international socialist flag has only one thing on it a fly
...Save fer later...
Obama and his followers won’t need flags for another four years.
Citizens, per the Rainbow Newspeak dictionary, 2009 edition, the popular colloquialism to be afixed to critics of Comrade Chairman Obama is - “Hater”.
Please take note.
“If I had a flag that Id waved at such an occasion, Id treasure it forever.”
Exactly my thoughts.... I have a small flag that was given to me by a Patriot Guard rider at the funeral of a soldier. I cannot seem to part with it. I don’t know what to do with it. Maybe look up his widow in a year or two and see if she wants it? Offer it to the wrestling coach to hang with the hero’s picture in the high school wrestling room?
Exactly my thought, too. Nice to know that the Inaguration budget (our tax dollars) probably paid for those flags to be handed out and then the Obama supporters just tossed them away and trampled them. American flags mean nothing to them because America means nothing to them.
Of course, if they had been handed cards for a free tank of gasoline, or even a Big Mac meal at McDonald's they probably would have kept it as their "entitlement" from the Democrats for showing up at the Inaguration!
Surely no one here is surprised by this.
Hey, neither is Hussein!
