Veteran: “If you’ve been a veteran and fought and some died for this flag, you don’t want to see it desecrated!”
The Lake County Democratic party headquarters were flying an alternative version of the US flag. Their version? Instead of the 50 stars, it had a headshot of President Obama.
We have had so many cases where displaying the true version of the flag has gotten people in trouble. Remember the kids that were banned in San Francisco from wearing the colors of the US flag because it would upset Hispanics? (link). And a judge had upheld the school’s right to censor this? (link).
Given that the flag is censored in cases like those then it is disgusting to see it displayed this way. The flag is no longer up thanks to a handful of Veterans that sounded the alarm with regards to US flag code.
People have died for that flag.
We have seen numerous examples of the President being elevated to a level greater than human. See the related article.
