Skip to comments.'Barack & Hillary at the movies' ... Mark Steyn

I see the Obama campaign has redesigned the American flag, and very attractive it is, too. Replacing the 50 stars of a federal republic is the single "O" logo symbolizing the great gaping maw of spendaholic centralization. And where the stripes used to be are a handful of red daubs, eerily mimicking the bloody finger streaks left on the pillars of the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi as its staff were dragged out by a mob of savages to be tortured and killed. What better symbol could one have of American foreign policy? Who says the slick, hollow, vapid marketing of the Obama campaign doesn't occasionally intersect with reality?

No leadership present.....
This should be required reading at all colleges and universities nationwide, but unfortunately it requires a vocabulary of more than 500 words.
I saw Omuslim referred to as the “Butcher of Benghazi” at another site and it seems appropriate for a ‘leader’ so derelict in his dutes ... sleeping while the whereabouts of America’s Ambassador was unknown, missing his intel briefing the next day while al-Qaeda flags are flying over our embassies, jetting off to Las Vegas, appearing on Letterman and then partying down with Beyonce/JayZ. Looks like a celebration tour to me. He should be seeing this graphic at every campaign stop between now and November.
Obama draws his own flag, makes his own laws, apologises to Muslims and Romney is on the news 24/7 for saying 47% of the vote is locked into Obama because he has bought their vote with entitlements..
Worth a Watch: The best video that I have seen to date that clearly and concisely describes the problem of rioting Muzzies and then lays out the best way to deal with them.
Did you photoshop this? It should be a Romney campaign poster!
“I built this.”
That is so true. I don't believe the average American is capable of understanding a Rush monologue, or the simplest Thomas Sowell economics 101 column. And we no longer educate our children, so I have no idea how we get out of this situation. A good indicator of the intellect of our population is to look at the intellectual level of the typical TV ad. The TV ad people know the intellectual level of Americans very well.
It's been deliberate; done by the Communists that McCarthy tried to warn us about.
HOORAY Mark Steyn and posters! BUMP!
Excellent point!! This graphic contains so much doesn't it? Mere words could never been as powerful as this picture!!!
Ahem..... I believe you meant to say "some people" no longer educate their children. I certainly did and the majority of homeschool parents are educating their children.... (but I get your point - government schools...)
The strips might represent the 5 pillars of the mohamadans.
I think "666" has some competition for the new mark of the beast.
It also strikes me that the 0 flag symbolizes both the “dumbing down” of America by using 3rd grade level art, as well as the desire to drive America into the past, losing modern technology and refinement.
BO must GO!
I got it from FReeper mkboyce who said to spread it around - a lot of blogs/folks have commented on the O-flag reminding them of the bloody handprint and I think this is the best interpretation of that ‘vision’ that I’ve seen. It is really powerful.
I’ve posted this before and will repeat that I, like numerous others, have fought and some have died for the current U.S. flag, and I will die defending it. I will personally go on the Capital steps and burn that rag Obummer is pushing. They can come after me, shoot me (others have tried) or hang me but I will still defend our flag. At my age (75) I am NOT AFRAID of Obummer and his stupid regime. The problem with our country today is too damn many of our citizens are afraid to stand up for themselves. We (not me) have become a bunch of sheep and will go along with that ever his majesty tells them, well, NOT ME! (I’m down off my soap box now). Bring it on!
“That's not an “O”... its a ZERO... as in Zero jobs, zero growth, and (fanfare) ZERO LEADERSHIP! Now we know what “leading from behind” means...
I saw a reference to this before, but I was preoccupied or something and didn't pursue it -- haven't seen any more until this. What is the whole story on the "redesigned" flag? Is he actually using something like that in his campaign?
Sorry to be so behind the times on this! :(
I hope you do not mind that I posted the graphic on my FB page.
Yes and we got some good exposure to the beautiful people actually implementing this “education of our children” in all the news coverage about the Chicago teachers strike last week.
Yes that is what I meant to say. Unfortunately, a majority still. We sent our two kids to public school, yet I believe we were still able to "educate" them, after the fact and mostly by example, and I have to say it was because of a Mr. Rush Limbaugh. Now in spite of their public education my grown kids are as conservative as we are and better citizens than I ever will be. Three of my four grandkids are being home schooled, and believe me they are being educated. My 12 year old grandson CAN understand a Tom Sowell column! And I am not worried about my one grandchild who goes to public school, he is getting his real education at home as well. Home schooling parents are true American heroes, and we reward them by making them pay double for the cost of educating their children. It would be great if Romney's proposed voucher program would also address this injustice.
Not my graphic .... I got it from FReeper mkboyce who said (and I quote) “pass it around” so I have been doing that. It should go ‘viral’ it is so good and “says it all” without words.
This is being sold at Omuslim’s campaign store - a mere $35.00. He also has one of the United States ... the country in the ‘bloody-looking’ stripes with his cult ‘O’ symbol on the left. The guy’s ego knows no bounds. A lot of people are objecting, saying it is a desecration of the flag.
My dad is a WWII vet .... he’ll be 90 in December. I cannot begin to tell you how upset he is. He was a medical tech and saw the price our American boys paid in life and limb (they were coming in from the Pacific battles with the Japanese). He’s never talked much about it until recently. If he could still walk well enough (his knees are about gone), he’d probably join you on the Capital steps.
Thank YOU for your service.
It’s shockingly powerful. Oddly enough, I hadn’t seen the terrible photo of the hand prints, only the disgraceful flag. May all the people responsible for this atrocity in Libya burn in hell.
Appalling — but you knew that! Are any of the people objecting not of a clear conservative persuasion? I can’t imagine a lot of people know about this; surely the MSM wouldn’t show it!
Hot Air, The Blaze, Twitchy are the main ones I’ve seen commenting & they are definitely conservative. The campaign did pull the image off a tweet after ‘complaints’, but they are still offering it on their website. The claim making the image “ok”: it’s “art” and not a desecration of the flag.
Perhaps he is becoming the president formerly known as Obama.
A person who “leads from behind” requires people who are sheep. Leading from behind is herding.
Steyn, as usual, does a masterful job of ripping the masks off the real fiends!
Who is that guy... does he pastor a church somewhere? can we transplant some of his brain into Romney’s? This is exactly what we need, our souls are dying for this kind of fight and stand-up for our freedoms and beliefs... someone with a brain and the balls to back it up... thank You God for this man...
Agreed. He also tells the unvarnished truth, and the unvarnished truth about where America is headed isn’t something most Americans want to hear. As long as most are getting their bread and circuses, they just put their fingers in their ears and sing “lalala I can’t hear you”. Optimism is said to be a defining characteristic of Americans, but there’s a point at which unfounded optimism becomes life in a fool’s paradise, and Steyn seems ro know we’ve passed that point.
I wonder which Obozo spokesman gets the happy job of announcing to the sodomites that they’re now subject to arrest and beheading?
Government schools and universities exist for indoctrination, not education.
Not at all! Hope the message sank in for those who saw it. :)
BTW, I heard this morning that the Obamugabe campaign has quietly removed the O “bloodstreaked” flag from their sale merchandise on their website.
