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.

Note to all: This is what awaits us if we falter.

It’s not disgusting, it’s positively chilling.

That’s one flag that should be burned.

Indeed it is. When I first saw that, I felt actually chilled and then became red-hot mad!

It’s more a reflection of his base than of Zero. After all, he’s just an empty suit reading a teleprompter. It’s his base that absolutely WORSHIPS him. Next come the graven idols.

Yank it down.

Toss it on the ground.

Stand on it.

Then release bladder contents on it.

Pretty professional looking to me. Doubtful this was a one and only. They got a batch for the Democratic Convention. They can fly them by the Greek columns or was that the inauguration?

I’m shocked and dismayed that they flew it anywhere near the US Flag especially under it.

Extremely callous to subvert the flag of the United to States to make it to represent one party, one person, and one extremist point of view. It would not be appropriate to display such a flag with a portrait of any one on it, even George Washington or Abraham Lincoln, both of whom would be more representative of America then the current foreign U.S. president. And I’m not talking about where Obama was born, I’m talking about his biases and prejudices. The Companies that sold and produced the flags should be prosecuted. The flag represents all the American people and needs to be respected and defended.

I had heard about it but to actually see a pic of it is extra creepy.

That's for sure. I found a picture of one on eBay and posted it to a thread that was going at the time.

It’s amazing they didn’t fly it only or above old glory.
