On Sunday, June 24, Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky (D-IL) marched in Chicagos annual Gay Pride Parade. Congresswoman Schakowsky informed me this was about the 30th time she has attended the event.
After speaking with the congresswoman briefly about the incident at the White House last week, that involved invited gay rights activist who photographed themselves giving a painting of President Ronald Reagan the middle finger, I noticed a large American flag displayed prominently on the front of her float. One problem with Jans show of patriotism during the extravagant parade of LGBT pride, however, was that Congresswoman Schakowskys display of the stars and stripes was in complete violation of the United States Flag Code.
As seen in the photo of the float, the U.S. flag is draped over the hood of the vehicle (not flying from a staff), underneath the rainbow flag (the gay flag or now often recognized as the LGBT flag).
According to the U.S. Code Title 36 Chapter 10 §175, there were many violations by Congresswoman and her staff with respect to displaying the flag. (Violations of Congresswoman Schakowskys parade float are highlighted in red in the U.S. Code Text listed belowunrelated items deleted.)
Congresswoman Schakowsky is no stranger to controversy regarding the American flag. Last fall the congresswoman spoke and took part in a march that began outside of a Mortgage Bankers Association dinner at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in downtown Chicago. The march fed into four other large feeder marches in an effort coordinated by Occupy Chicago and several labor unions. Not one American flag was present in the march that Congresswoman Schakowsky took part in.

What a disgusting bitch... she looks every bit the part of an anti-American hag. Nice going, IL.
She is one of the stupidest members of Congress, and that is a hard place to achieve given the competition
You should be IMPEACHED if you don't know the RULES of flying the AMERICAN FLAG!!
Of course, you think that the UN flag should be flying over the capitol, not the American flag!!
Next thing ya know, some wise guy will post a Helen Thomas picture just to prove my point.
Seems like an odd pair...I wonder what Schakowsky and Lumpkin have in common?
There must be some hidden connection.
This hag is a fitting poster woman for the Democrat Party. She can join such Marxists as Babs MiKulski, Maxine Waters, and Debbie Blabbermouth Schultz as the worst America has to offer, both inside and out. They better hope we never go to photo ID on ballots.
I don’t even consider pathetic SOCIALIST DEMOCRATS like this moron as americans. She as been to the gay pride event 30 years in a row. What the hell you been doing in between other than DESTROYING THIS COUNTRY, which you depise. As bad as obama’s fraudulent election has been for our country it has awoken the people up to the need that we must politically destroy this crowd and take this country back.
... with a capital “C”.
Leftist aka progressive pervert homosexuals think one way. Perverted. And people still chant. What two adults do behind closed doors does not affect them!
