Missile Defense Agency Logo Angers Right
CBS News ^ | 2/24/10

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

and this Obama tree ornament just happened to look exactly like Mao Zedong. What a coincidence.

Translation: "Hey, Right Wing! Here's something WE want you to be angry about!"

Yes, we ARE the stupid party.

CAIR is probably too busy praising alluh because of the stupidity of the infidels that voted for Obama and his gang of America-haters

I would bet this is bothering more people than just conservatives. This is blatant.

The Boeing symbol doesn’t have a crescent moon.

Not even close.

Unless you’re counting the outer ring of course. But it’s still kinda bizarre what with the Iranian Space Agency thing.

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.

I'm suggesting your lack of concern is rather sad. Agendas do exist, and Muslim influences in these symbols are evident in a big way.

Neither does the MDA logo. It's just the Boeing arc, rotated.

Really, some folks get bugs up their butts over the stupidest damned things. Does it ever bother you that it allows other folks to play you like a harp?

I have plenty of concern for things that matter, but I am rather prickly about other people trying to manage them for their own agendas. I don’t care for radical islam either, but that doesn’t mean I fret about exploding mullahs under my bed.

No. Its an explosion in the OLD logo. Its a crescent moon and star in the new one. Apparently you aren't capable of discerning the difference.

I'm not sure why you feel the need to defend it, but I'm sure Allah appreciates your support.

The arc is similar but he’s commenting on the crescent shape. Boeing’s is a perfect circle.

We all get the imagery but using the Obama color scheme as well as making the circle (i.e. the globe) look like a crescent....well...

Why did the logo need changing anyway? The original was perfectly acceptable. Don’t they realize that changes like this cost a lot of money? Idiots!

Nah, just the "coincidence" of some Obama logos that accidentally look like a crescent moon from a man whose pastor was best buds with NOI's Calypso Louie and was an Israel-hater. And was to be his "spiritual adviser".



After all, it's not Obama's appointee Holder uses folks who defended muslim terrorists - oh wait, he does - just another coincidence of course

U.S. Atty Gen. Holder admits 9 Obama Dept. of Justice appointees worked for terrorist detainees

Hussein’s defenders have a pattern that is clear.

As does Obama, he loves symbolism, and this logo is obvious.

The old one (below) has the red and yellow colors of communist China and Soviet Union. Also, a missile shooting through what could pass for a red communist star. Maybe Obami the commie just couldn't handle this imagery, or was asked by his comrades overseas to replace it.

It's not a star; it's an explosion.

In the old logo you posted, it is. Clearly. Not so in the new one.

Plus, juxtaposed with what is clearly a crescent, it is even less an explosion and more a star.
