LUMBERTON, N.J. (CBS) — A South Jersey man has come up with what he hopes is a solution to a controversy over the American flag that he flew in his yard — a flag bearing the image of President Barack Obama in place of the field of stars.

“In Acacia, there are some angry, maybe even evil-minded people about Obama,” he tells KYW Newsradio.

Imagine this idiot’s response if his neighbor flew a flag with Bush’s face in the same place.

I think he should fly any flag he wants on his own property.

Its especially true if his flag exposes him as an idiot.

You’ve gotta read the comments below the article. They are freaking hilarious! Especially this one!

“He wanted to use a picture of MOOOOOOCHELS A$$ ; but he could not find a flag big enough......”

Imagine his response if a bunch of Freepers burned a flag like this in front of his face.

This comment at the original site nails it!

Since the flag’s stars represent the States, this desecration of the flag is right in line with how democrats/progressives feel about about the States. It proclaims that Obama and his minions trump the States. States rights do not matter with a Fascist in control. For examples of this in action, simply look to Arizona and the illegals issue and South Carolina with the Boeing issue, etc.

Really, in some ways I feel sorry for people like this person. They are so damn stupid, and if only they could be set free from such utterly ignorant idol worship.

Is the same guy (one of them anyway) that 6abc reported a couple days ago about 2 guys flying the same said flag over their apartment unit?

6abc showed the ‘angry mob’ shouting at these guys but refusing to show the two guys’ face when they ‘defend their action as (quote) to show their patriotism and the support for president Obama (unquote)’.

I was thinking what is the chance these two guys are gay?

Some people are so stupid that they don’t even know they are stupid.

Getting back to the flag, it seems to be a common thread that all narcissist tyrants love to post their image on things. You name the tyrant and they seem to plaster their image on everything. I can’t recall at any point in our history where anyone would allow a presidents image on a flag. A president that understands the constitution and one that loves his country would have immediately demanded that producing and displaying a flag like this was wrong and explain why. I expected neither action from Obama and I got what I expected.

Cant’ do that, you’ll be branded a racist. Original one gets the point across without racial undertones.

Sure, it’s his property.

He can put up pictures of Obama all over the place, as long as he doesn’t violate reasonable zoning laws.

But that flag is a desecration of our American flag. Sure, he has a right to put it up, I suppose. And his neighbors have a right to protest it, since it desecrates the flag.

Hey. The Communists do it all the time. Salute a picture of the great leader. Just goes to show that its a natural human impulse in a lot of people here in America too to want to give up all responsibility for yourself and have a dictator take care of you in exchange for power.

If only stupidity were painful. At least we could hear them screaming as they got closer to us.

“Cant’ do that, you’ll be branded a racist”

One of my best buds is a Filipino right-winger. When he gets into an argument with a white liberal, he just destroys them verbally. I just sit back for the entertainment as he just embarrasses their white liberal guilt out of them.

The stars on our flag stand for the 50 states. How fitting that Obama alone sits on the field of blue on this morphed flag...

This guy unwittingly revealed Obama for what he thinks himself to be, a king that answers to no one.

I wouldn’t go that far, but you know those signs that read:

We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone...

That would be strictly enforced!

Ostracize the guy from the community. Adios fur-ball.

"The stars on our flag stand for the 50 states."

"L'etat c'est moi" - the words may be those of Louis XIV, but the attitude is pure Obama.
