Vets Angry Over American Flag Featuring Obama
The flag, which features a picture of President Obama, was taken down Tuesday afternoon. Korean war veteran Don Van Beck said his blood was boiling.
“I can’t describe how upset was because you just don’t do that to the American flag,” Van Beck said. Van Beck found it flying outside Lake County Democratic headquarters under the stars and stripes. Marine Corps vet John Masterjohn was seeing red.
“Joseph Stalin, pictures of Mao, pictures of Adolph Hitler. The pomp, the ceremony — the flags like that,” Masterjohn said. Nearly a dozen veterans went to the door and aimed to take it down.
“No. This is private property. This is private property. You’re not allowed to touch anything. I’ll call the police,” Democratic Party
chairwoman Nancy Hulbert said. “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.”
“If you’ve been a veteran and
fought — and some died for this flag — you don’t want to see it desecrated. That’s how simple it is,” Van Beck said. source – WFTV
