Skip to comments.Florida Veterans Demand Democrat Party Remove American Flag Altered With Obama’s Image
Posted on 03/14/2012 4:48:17 AM PDT by blueyon
After a short stand off between a group of veterans and the head of the Lake County, FL Democrat Party, an American flag that had been altered to depict an image of Barack Obama in the space where the stars are normally located was taken down.
The Lake County Democratic Headquarters in Tavares has been flying two American flags outside their office. The first an American Flag and the second the altered flag.
flagobamaA veterans group arrived late this afternoon with the media in tow and demanded that the second flag be taken down. Don Van Beck, executive director of the Veterans Memorial at Fountain Park asked that the altered flag be removed, explaining that it was in violation of federal flag code. He offered a POW/MIA flag to fly in its place.
Nancy Hurlburt, the Democratic Party Chair for Lake County, said she would research the issue but didnt take the Obama flag down immediately, prompting Van Beck to declare that they would take the flag down for her.

The only flag I would consider burning.
Welcome to the United States of Obama - all 57 of them!
Are these people “cultists” or what?
Nancy Hulbert... Idiot.
Of course it is a violation of flag etiquette. Any alteration of the flag is wrong.
Of course, that is just one of those stupid traditions isn’t it? Like FREEDOM.
Gee, I missed this on the news.
these people are like a cult and are an embarrassment to themselves.
Could you imagine the outcry?
THAT is grotesque and sickening!
There are sold on eBay. Story here:
Just as bad as the Sep 11, 2001, photo in the NY Times of Billy Ayers trampling the flag.
Of all days. I’ll venture the irony escapes is little communist black heart.
Flag desecration is illegal. The miscreants who desecrated our flag with the image of that alien Jew-hating, anti-Christian, atheistic communist should be arrested.
Yep. And very dedicated cultists at that. They worship the ground that the sob walks on. Every word and sound that comes from his lips they idolize and cling to. These are in no way, form, or fashion normal rational human beings.

From the website of the Communist Party, USA...
(prior to the election)
"The Communist Party USA views the 2008 elections as a tremendous opportunity to defeat the policies of the right-wing Republicans and to move our country in a new progressive direction.
The record turnout in the Democratic Presidential primary races shows that millions of voters, including millions of new voters, are using this election to bring about real change. We wholeheartedly agree with them."
After the election....
A Landslide Mandate For Change
A breakthrough election
Congratulations on an extraordinary history making election!
We can think back with pride to decades of hard work toward our strategic goal of a big enough, broad enough and united enough labor and all-peoples movement that could overcome the ultra-right blockage to all progress. That all peoples movement has come to life, it is dynamic and it has the potential to keep growing.
The election of Barack Obama and a strengthened Congress creates new conditions in our country. There is now the possibility to shift gears and move forward. This new day requires us to further develop our tactics in order to continue to deepen and broaden labor and peoples unity.
There are thousands of experiences that we all have had in these momentous days, some large, some small, all of which express the enormity of change in thinking and readiness for involvement that is underway and that steels us for the battles ahead.
The tears of joy we all shared as crowds gathered to watch the election results here and throughout the world dramatize the new moment we are in.

Change is Here, Change is Coming
Sam Webb, National Chair, Communist Party, USA:
Let me begin with a simple observation: If the last 30 years were an era of reaction, then the coming decade could turn into an era of reform, even radical reform. Six months into the Obama presidency, I would say without hesitation that the landscape, atmosphere, conversation, and agenda have strikingly changed compared to the previous eight years.
In this legislative session, we can envision winning a Medicare-like public option and then going further in the years ahead.
We can visualize passing tough regulatory reforms on the financial industry, which brought the economy to ruin.
We can imagine the troops coming home from Iraq and Afghanistan while U.S. representatives participate in a regional process that brings peace and stability to the entire region.
In the current political climate, the expansion of union rights becomes a real possibility.
Much the same can be said about winning a second stimulus bill, and we sure need one, given the still-rising rate, and likely long term persistence, of unemployment.
Isnt it possible in the Obama era to create millions of green jobs in manufacturing and other sectors of the economy in tandem with an attack on global warming?
Cant we envision taking new strides in the long journey for racial and gender equality in this new era, marked at its beginning by the election of the first African American to the presidency?
And isnt the overhaul of the criminal justice and prison system a system steeped in racism no longer pie-in-the sky, but something that can be done in the foreseeable future?
All these things are within reach now!

'change has come to America' as he
claimed victory in a historic presidential election."
Obama State of the Union: He got the ball rolling:
It goes far beyond worship, my FRiend.
"It was at the Chicago home of [Bill] Ayers and [Bernardine] Dohrn that Obama, then an up-and-coming 'community organizer,' had his political coming out party in 1995. Not content with this rite of passage in Lefty World where unrepentant terrorists are regarded as progressive luminaries, still working 'only to educate' both Obamas tended to the relationship with the Ayers."

"As a gesture of solidarity, the Vietnamese who [Bernardine] Dohrn met in Budapest presented her with a ring made from an American aircraft shot down over North Vietnam. Bill Ayers would receive a similar ring while meeting with Vietnamese communists in Toronto. He later recalled being so moved by the gesture that he 'left the room to cry.' "
Thanks for sharing this story. As someone else pointed out, I missed it on the news too. That is the most disgusting and disrespectful thing I’ve seen in a long time. A communist idiot pictured on the American flag? No thanks.
Those foul f—king bastards should be tarred, feathered and then wrapped up in those obscene mockeries of our Flag, and literally beaten senseless.
If the Republican Party had any spine at all, they would run images of that nauseating desecration every hour on the hour until November.
Shepard Fairey is the 'artist' (commie propagandist) who created the "Hope" and "Change" posters for Obama.

From Shepard Fairey's official website (ObeyGiant.com):
Check it out! I got a thank you note from Barack Obama. If he is elected, maybe I have a get out of jail free card. All kidding aside, Im honored to be acknowledged by someone so important to the future of our country. Also, the Obama campaign asked me to do a poster illustration for sale on their site. It should be out next week on barackobama.com.-Shepard
Here is the 'thank you' letter Barack Obama sent to Shepard Fairey:
"Dear Shepard, I would like to thank you for using your talent in support of my campaign. The political messages involved in your work have encouraged Americans to believe they can help change the status quo. Your images have a profound effect on people, whether seen in a gallery or on a stop sign. I am privileged to be a part of your artwork and proud to have your support. I wish you continued success and creativity.
Sincerely, Barack Obama.'"

That is sickening!
I don't think that would be a good idea. It would give people the false impression that the DemonRats care about our military.
I wouldn’t have confronted them - I’d have taken it down and burned it, and posted the video on Youtube, making sure to show that the flag was being flown by the commies/democRATS.
It tales a lot to piss me off. This pisses me off.
And maybe a few yellow stains, too.
I live to “offend” a RAT.
I would object if the flag had Ronald Reagan on it. It’s just not appropriate.
Hmmmm.....surprised the brainless “progressives” have not read up on flag etiquette. Oh yea....they haven’t read the Constitution of The United States either. Imagine that!!!
My thanks and appreciation to the veterans who opposed this disgraceful act.
Great point...our flag is not to be messed with, period.
A freeper posted this ad for an anti-Obama bumper sticker bumper sticker:
That Obama bumper sticker on your car may as well say Yes, I am THAT stupid
I would expect the marxists next door to have one but I doubt most of the neighborhood would tolerate it. Too many veterans and normal people.
These veterans are guilty of a hate crime!
you might have given MIA T a run for the money...
lots of info in there your posts remind me of how she used to inform us as well... Back in the Clinton days.
The Fox TV affiliate in Houston has captured images of a volunteer in a campaign office for Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama working in front of a flag featuring the image of Che Guevara, the South American revolutionary who became Fidel Castro's executioner after the communist takeover in Cuba.
And while the Obama campaign has issued a statement placing a modest distance between the campaign and its "volunteers," the issue of such an image on display in an office operating on behalf of a man hoping to be commander in chief of the world's last remaining superpower is raising alarms.
Even Obama supporters have been forced into corners because of the issue, with one likening the Texas state Republican Party to Guevara, to whom have been attributed hundreds of executions of anti-Castro leaders.
Under the heading "Barack Guevara," Investor's Business Daily raised some of the more pointed questions, to which the campaign responded only with a statement: "The office featured in this video is funded by volunteers of the Barack Obama Campaign and is not an official headquarters for his campaign. ..."
This entire thread would make one of the most powerful campaign commercials possible if only the GOP could shed the progressives within and grow a set.
Great links and linkage from all who have posted.
If anyone reading has any connection to the RNC, this thread is a treasure trove ASSUMING they really want to demolish the democrat party and not (as I think they do) want to just be part of a Government Party with a left and right wing fooling the citizens into thinking there is a real difference.
Unless the RNC starts to take their Conservative base seriously and not just for some guaranteed votes this country is in deep trouble. Come on RNC show us what you are made of and inundate the airwaves and print media with these images.
Totally agree with you
It would kind of been more correctly if they had made the flag also with the Muzzie’s symbols on it!!!
I think the next option would be a little Italian lightning.
