Skip to comments.DNC Uses Flag Desecration Video to Raise Funds

A Democratic fundraising video on President Obama's political Web site shows an American flag mural being covered in graffiti and desecrated with slogans about health care reform.
As a heart monitor beeps ominously in the background, a graffiti artist paints over the Stars and Stripes with phrases criticizing opposition to the Democratic legislation, including "profit over life" and the crossed-out words "death panel." The whole flag is eventually smeared with paint and blacked out.
One of 20 finalists in the Democratic National Committee's "Health Reform Video Challenge," the video shows the Los Angeles-based graffiti artist "Saber" at work, according to a copy of the video posted to YouTube.
The DNC is using the splattered Old Glory to pick up some change, asking for donations to air the winner of its contest. "[T]o put the winning ad on national television, we'll need folks to chip in and help cover the cost of getting the ad on the air," the DNC says on its my.BarackObama.com Web site, which hosts its Organizing for America campaign program.
"I think that most Americans no matter what their political persuasion is will find this pretty obscene and pretty shocking," said Armstrong Williams, a conservative radio host. Williams said it was a bad message to send for the DNC to give "energy and credibility" to an artist desecrating the flag.

This is obscene!
“Marblehead gym members say giant American flag is offensive”
Well, they are ANTI-AMERICAN.
They are working up to COMMUNISM - socialism is just a step in that direction. So CAPITALISM and PRIVATE ENTERPRISE must be DENOUNCED. They are doing this by MOCKING what our country is or WAS about. They are redefining our country.
To be an AMERICAN is also to be a CAPITALIST.
Hope that makes sense ...
Keep pushing it socialists!
And to these men...
WHY, DNC do you hate our country so much?
To be an American ALSO means FREEDOM. Blacking out the American flag is Freudian. It is the very SYMBOL of American Freedom. This is just one more disgusting perversion in a long line of disgusting perversions that AMERICANS should NOT tolerate.
They are baiting us beyond our tolerance. This is SO in your face I cannot find the words to describe how I feel.
Rage does not even begin to cover it.
“’O,’ say can you see Obama’s face on U.S. flag?
Readers promise to track down those modifying Old Glory”
I am sitting here with tears flowing down my face. The myriad emotions running though me after the past few days is so overwhelming that I can scarcely control it.
Anger doesn’t cover it. It’s a combination of abject hatred and outrage and helplessness that I have never felt before.
“Keep pushing it socialists!”
On the same page as you! (probably more like MOST)
