Skip to comments.Missile Defense Agency Logo Angers Right
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
It's not a star; it's an explosion.
Hey, CBS, how about doing some real reporting (getting off your *sses) instead of sitting around reading websites!
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.
No, that ornament looks exactly like a painting by influential American artist, Andy Warhol.
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?
No if you will excuse me, I really must leave now and run in frantic circles whilst wailing and waving mine arms.
Right....reporting on Twitter. What the heck?
Let me suggest something to you: some folks on this thread are out of their minds, and it's evident in a big way.
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.
It's just a Sanskrit thing, rotated...
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!
CAIR loves folks like you.
That's what all true conservatives do, I'm told. Say, have you checked Fox to see what color Threat Level we're at? I need to know just how government-terrorized I should be.
Peace Be Upon You. Doh! I’ve been outed!
Zero budget for missile defense! Now thats BO’s idea of defense spending.
Hussein’s defenders have a pattern that is clear.
As does Obama, he loves symbolism, and this logo is obvious.
A sane person wouldn't have written that; or would at least have blushed in embarrassment for having done so.
Get a grip.
