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.

Exactly what he and his cult want to do........
Send them and E-mail and let them know how you feel, I did. God Bless those veterans.
Thanks cutting and pasting to email letter now
Video from WFTV of vets confronting them at the door:
The Commie left doesn't give a rat's you-know-what about Islam, or any religion for that matter. They only suck up to the islamo-terrorists because both hate America and want to destroy it.
"Barack Obama received at least some instruction in the Islamic faith of his father and went with him to the mosque, but the importance of this experience is vastly overstated by conservative commentators who seek to portray Obama as a Muslim of sorts. Radical anti-Americanism, rather than Islam, was the reigning faith in the Dunham household. ...
Barack Obama is a clever fellow who imbibed hatred of America with his mother's milk, but worked his way up the elite ladder of education and career. He shares the resentment of Muslims against the encroachment of American culture, although not their religion. He has the empathetic skill set of an anthropologist who lives with his subjects, learns their language, and elicits their hopes and fears while remaining at emotional distance. That is, he is the political equivalent of a sociopath. The difference is that he is practicing not on a primitive tribe but on the population of the United States.
There is nothing mysterious about Obama's methods. "A demagogue tries to sound as stupid as his audience so that they will think they are as clever as he is," wrote Karl Krauss. Americans are the world's biggest suckers, and laugh at this weakness in their popular culture. Listening to Obama speak, Sinclair Lewis' cynical tent-revivalist Elmer Gantry comes to mind, or, even better, Tyrone Power's portrayal of a carnival mentalist in the 1947 film noire Nightmare Alley. The latter is available for instant viewing at Netflix, and highly recommended as an antidote to having felt uplifted by an Obama speech. ..."

"Vastly Illuminating!" September 25, 2004
By Kat Bakhu
"I had long wondered why people on the Left had the propensity to speak more positively about people who would slit their throats than they do about their own country, which affords them more freedom and opportunity than anywhere else. David Horowitz has answered that question thoroughly and convincingly in his Unholy Alliance. Where I felt bewildered and confused, I now feel crystal clear. Unholy Alliance is such a great book.
It begins with the leftist movements at the beginning of the 20th Century, and works its way up to the present day, exploring the anti-American attitude of these movements in detail. Horowitz shows that the enemies of the US back then are largely the same group today, operating under the same misperceptions, making the same mistakes, and pursuing the same impossible utopia.
Individual chapters are included on the Patriot Act (I was persuaded that it is a GOOD thing); the democratic flip-flop on Iraq once G.W. Bush implemented what they agreed with Clinton needed to be done; the driving components of the current anti-war movement; as well as chapters on individual personalities who are major spokespeople of the Left. Horowitz covers a lot of ground, and he covers it concisely and clearly. Unholy Alliance is richly informative without ever being boring or plodding.
This book is so illuminating that I simply cannot do justice to it here. I love people who reason so clearly that they help me get my own reasoning clear. Horowitz is just that type of person! In the terrain of mindless clichés (no-blood-for-oil, etc.), he is a breath of real fresh air."
Unholy Alliance: Radical Islam and the American Left -by David Horowitz
Not all dissent is equal, and Americans whose actions are calculated to give aide and comfort to the butchers who murdered 3,000 innocent people on September 11, 2001 are not patriotic at all... they are, in fact, quite the opposite.

That is what they do in a third world country dictatorship. Inside each left wing lunatic resides a little communist dictator.
I'm sorry, but I just can't get past the irony of a Democrat chiding someone about not respecting private property rights.
Funny, I haven’t seen this in the West Palm or Miami media...the same media that drools to report any problem with Florida Republicans.
Local media is where some of the worst bias is found....they leave out SO much, and include the most blatant moments of adulation to Obama you’ll ever witness.
" Hey, Obama. Wanna go down the fruit cellar with me---say hello to mother?"
A spectacular series of posts, ETL, which should be in video format as a campaign ad for the Republican nominee!
Thanks for all the consistantly excellent posts you provide us.
Thank you for posting the video...I am so proud of our men! Stood their ground and won! Wahoo
LOVE IT , I’m getting one.
The other day I was on my way home and stopped off to get gas.
Anyway I saw an old pick up truck and two men got out of it, they were about my age.
I noticed that the driver had two obama stickers on it,m strange they should be driving a pick up when they vote for a guy which wants us to drive electric golf carts I thought but then again the obama voters have never been that bright.
Once inside I noticed the driver had a shirt with obama face on it and it said I stand with the President.
Well me being me and finding that this could be one of the most ironic things I have come across for some , a man supporting obama getting gas with high gas prices for an old pollution pick up
Anyway I said “You stand with him , must like those high gas prices, and people losing their house whole kids are put into more debt”
He ignores me and so I was right in front of him and his pal while they got their two beers for the drive home and a case once they got home.
I said”why on earth would you support a guy which wants you to drive a small golf cart etc.
He pretends to ignore me and I suppose when there are only two of them and only me then the odds for them to say something is small as they need to be at least 10 of them to take one guy on.
I can only hope that these kind of dopes wake up and quick because people like you put the info out there and these idiots seem to not understand what they’re supporting
I get on the computer and go to FR and the first thing I read is this. I just love starting my day p*ssed off. Can we please get this bastard out of the White House in November. His minions(a follower devoted to serve his/her master relentlessly) are creepy. Only dictators have followers like that.
and to make matters worse, it’s a creepy dictator like photo.
There are reasons we don't have massive Mao photos or other types of Communist hagiography. This is America, a country of laws and not of men.
I hope President Obama understands that and this was just a crazy idea by local politically tone-deaf Democrats.
“Inside each left wing lunatic resides a little communist dictator.”
Bingo! And don’t you know that when they were in elementary school they were the class “bossies” - just as Obama reportedly was?! I’ll bet every one of us to this day remembers the names of those kids - whether 5 years ago, or 60 years ago!
I would find it creepy for someone to fly a flag with any living political figure on it even if there were no stripes or hint of it being similar to the American flag.
This needs to go viral on the Internet. Every Veterans’ Group in America needs to be made aware of this desecration.
I’m putting both of those quotes on Facebook.
If only indeed. /sigh
Flag burning is the correct method of disposal.
Correct me if I’m wrong but would I be correct in saying that neither Hitler, Stalin, Lenin, Mao, Mussolini nor any of the Korean nutjobs ever went this far?

If anyone think that Bari(?) Soetoro is not a full fledge MUzzie, and that his grandmother TOOT died a natural death, same as Andrew Breitbart are very naive!!
Remember it was not allowed to call him Hussein before the 2008 election!!!
Your post is like a cold bucket of water dumped over the head. Wow.
