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
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.
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.
Life is just not as interesting for us RINO CAIR-funded Obama defenders, as it is for these folks. It's starting to make me jealous: I'm considering surgery....
You're expecting an objection from that goup of knuckle draggers?
I'm sure the LOVE it.
I call ‘em as I see ‘em.
Soviet Union flag
Flag of the People's Republic of China
The O'Reilly Factor confronts Bill Ayers:

2008 DNC Convention
So do I.
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.
Thanks for posting the SEIU logo earlier today. That is where I got it from. Did you come across it yourself, or did see it posted somewhere?
Son of a bitch. Can they be any more “in your face?”
