Vets angry over American flag featuring Obama
WFTV ^ | 3/13/12 | WFTV

Tempers are flaring over a version of the American flag flying in Lake County. A veterans group says the flag is an outrage.

The flag, which features a picture of President Obama, was taken down Tuesday afternoon.

Korean war veteran Don Van Beck said his blood was boiling.

"I can't describe how upset was because you just don't do that to the American flag," Van Beck said.

Van Beck found it flying outside Lake County Democratic headquarters under the stars and stripes. Marine Corps vet John Masterjohn was seeing red.

“A veterans group says the flag is an outrage.”

Progressive punks have been having a good time of late stomping on the flag and the Constitution. It is hoped that local veterans made their sentiments known to the revolutionary morons who raised such a flag.

IMHO

A gift? It’s like saying the perv who got your daughter pregnant left you a gift instead. Liberals are spinmeisters of insult, but they are quick to blame others for things they do not even do.

I cannot stand these fake and hypocritical demonic creatures of self-congratulations and blame shifting.

Dude, it doesn't matter. No matter what a Republican does, the Enemedia will harass and harangue them. Conversly, if a Democrat commits an act of genocide, the Enemedia will find an angle to make him or her look good.

I remember seeing some cr@p like that at the inauguration. Obviously, our flag doesn't mean a whole lot to some people.

And I understand, completely, that Obama didn’t silkscreen the banner personally. But still . . . .

Has a nice “Herr Leader” look, doesn’t it?

I truly believe it has become official unwritten policy for the Dems to demonstrate how much they hate this country. Every time they do something like this and mainstream Republicans are mute (gutless bastards) then the Dems have further proof they can destroy this country with impunity.

After watching the video, I want to know...

Where’s Bill Maher and his four letter descriptions of the fairer sex when you need him?

I called Mitch McConnell’s office, the woman I talked to did not sound particularly interested in the story. Got a little curt when I demanded that the Senator show some gumption and speak out about this.

I’m looking forward to the milk toast form letter I get as a followup. Barf.

You are exactly correct. 0bama has his “cult of personality.” I’m not surprised. I’m sure the average German in 1930 thought they were too civilized for that, too.

The Democratic Party is not a political party. It is a cult. It has all the defining characteristics of a cult.

From the article:

Van Beck found it flying outside Lake County Democratic headquarters under the stars and stripes.

People who are busy pi**ing on the flag, burning or stomping on it don't care about US Flag etiquette.
