A group of Veterans in Lake County, Florida have shown their disgust for the county Democrats who have desecrated the American flag by putting up a mock flag that has President Obama’s face where the 50 stars belong.
In a story from WFTV.com, the veterans went to the offices and demanded the flag be taken down. At first, Lake County Democrat Party Chairwoman Nancy Hulbert declined to take it down, letting the veterans know that if they touch the flag she’ll call the police. 10 minutes later, she came out with a pair of scissors, and took the flag down, noting that she had looked online to figure out if the flag was against the US Flag Code:
Just went online. Just went online and looked up the flag code. There is no higher-up in Lake County. I’m responsible. I take responsibility.
The US Flag Code specifically stated: (176-g)
The flag should never have placed upon it, nor on any part of it, nor attached to it any mark, insignia, letter, word, figure, design, picture, or drawing of any nature.
What makes the story remarkable is the idea that Democrats would find the flag acceptable in the first place. Is there no regard for history? For how sickening the imagery? One of the vets, John Masterjohn, compared the disgraced flag with those through history:
Joseph Stalin, pictures of Mao, pictures of Adolph Hitler. The pomp, the ceremony — the flags like that….
The Left would (and will?) deride Masterjohns’ statement as “hate speech.” They would (and will?) denounce the idea that anyone was pushing Obama as “Dear Leader,” like they do in North Korea with recently deceased Kim-Jong Il. But this flag begs the question, “What Do Democrats Value?” Replacing the 50 stars (representing the states, where the federal government derives its ability to exist) with Obama’s photo is more than just slick advertising or cool pop art. It is in line with those who pledge themselves to Obama’s service, as opposed to America’s service. It is a question whose answer can determine an election, and the future of a nation.
