Posted on 02/24/2010 2:09:22 PM PST by Iron Munro
The Drudge Report and other conservative sites are highlighting a newly-unveiled logo for the U.S. Department of Defense's Missile Defense Agency and complaining that the new logo (pictured at left) is reminiscent of both the Obama campaign logo and an Islamic flag.
"the new MDA shield appears ominously to reflect a morphing of the Islamic crescent and star with the Obama campaign logo," writes Big Government's Frank Gaffney. " Team Obama is behaving in a way that -- as the new MDA logo suggests -- is all about accommodating that 'Islamic Republic' and its ever-more aggressive stance."
Critics, meanwhile, are mocking the uproar from the right. Tweeted "Zeus": "Drudge is hinting the new Missile Defense Agency logo resembles an Islamic flag's star & crescent. SECRET OBAMA AGENDA!"
The MDA describes itself as a Department of Defense "research, development, and acquisition agency" that is "focused on retaining and recruiting a dedicated workforce interested in supporting our national security." The agency is engaged in development and testing of an integrated Ballistic Missile Defense System.
You can see the Obama campaign logo HERE
and the Islamic flag star and crescent HERE
I am surprised CAIR has not commented on this yet.
Translation: "Hey, Right Wing! Here's something WE want you to be angry about!"
Yes, we ARE the stupid party.
I would bet this is bothering more people than just conservatives. This is blatant.
That cannot be a coincedence. What the hell?
Looks to me like it borrows from the logo of their prime contractor...
Speak for yourself.
Deb, this is a preposterously stupid thing to get all pissed off about. Look at my #8 above, and see if you can't find even greater similarity.
What about the good old American Flag, you dopes?
Thanks, I will. And also think for myself.
I’m hardly “pissed”, but I have to say I was stunned to see a crescent and obvious star in the logo of a US government agency. I remember when the Democrats were SCREAMING HYSTERICALLY because the bookcase in back of a Mike Huckabee commercial looked like a cross.
You’ll love the Flight 93 memorial... (The rest of us are rather furious about it.)
I am not a graphic designer but sometimes I play one at work. I’d like to offer my services to design something ORIGINAL for the Agency.
Why do you say that? Are you suggesting something?
It’s the “O” infection - we have let it into the body, now it’s multiplying and spreading to everything.
