American flag with President Obama's image sparks outrage at Florida Democrats
Fox News ^ | March 14, 2012 | Joshua Rhett Miller

An American flag with President Obama's image in place of the stars flew over a Florida county's Democrat headquarters long enough to enrage local veterans who called the altered banner "a disgrace."

Lake County Democratic Party officials took down the flag, which flew just below a standard Old Glory on the flagpole outside headquarters in Tavares following complaints by local veterans. But merely taking it down wasn't enough for several local veterans, who said they fought for the flag Betsy Ross made famous, not one with a politician on it.

It’s more a reflection of his base than of Zero.
If they didn’t think he’d like it they wouldn’t
have done it.

The cult of personality did wonders for Stalin...

down the memory hole.

I can see an up dated “It’s not Fascism when we do it”
poster with obama the sa man and that flag.

Frightening.

I'd get arrested if I did that.

WTF!


If those asshats really want to start a revolution they're beginning the first stage.
If I were even near there I would cut those ropes and piss fire on that SOB and
dare to be arrested.

Disgusting example of the 1st amendment.

If it hadn’t been a Fox News story, I would have figured it
to be a hoax. I think I will save that photo to my files...
just in case....

According to the report off Drudge the old lady that pulled this stunt bought it off the internet for $20.
Maybe we could talk her into swimming lessons in Lake Dora. I once saw a true 12 footer in there and a bud of mine that lives in "Howey" says the gators are getting bolder because of the "snowbirds" feeding them.

Note to all: This is what awaits us if we falter. It’s not disgusting, it’s positively chilling.

Chilling indeed. And we do need to remember this.

This “Obama Flag” desecration needs to go viral on the internet; E-mail, Facebook, Twitter, everywhere. Get the ol’ Vets riled up and you’ll lose an additional 5 percent of the votes you would have gotten. In a close election, that’s a chunk of votes.
