Vets Angry Over American Flag Featuring Obama

LAKE COUNTY, Fla. — Tempers are flaring over a version of the American flag flying in Lake County. A veterans group says the flag is an outrage.

Now y'all know where THIS is heading....O-Ba-MAO!

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

  • The American flag, without Obama’s likeness on it, should be displayed upside down in front of all government buildings, the White House, post offices, private homes, American Legion halls, VFWs , etc.

    This would be a distress signal.

    The U.S., as a whole, has rejected God and has substituted man-made ordinances as the rule of law.

    • I completely agree! I will change my flag tomorrow and fly it upside down as a signal of America being in distress!

  • Oh wow!! Crazy!!



  • I have seen it all now!!!! But I’m afraid it’s going to get much worse.

  • Remember the photo of the president and other dignitaries on a podium while the National Anthem was being played and the flag displayed on a huge screen? The others all had their hand over their heart, their eyes on the flag; Obama’s hands were at his side, his eyes on his feet. He has NO respect for the flag; these Democrats echo that. None of them deserve any public office in America! This desecration of Old Glory is a disgrace that must be dealt with by the national Democratic party, or the penalty suffered at the polls in November!

    • Yes, thats why he became president of the country that he hates, cuz he’s just goofy like that i guess.

      Did you notice also that monkeys fly and the moon is made of cheese? You didn’t notice that? Then I want to see your long form birth certificate.

  • I saw this in the news. It’s outrageous. On the Fox article the woman said, “the opposition is only from people who do not accept our President.” and that “she will be consulting lawyers to determine her rights” and “won’t say she won’t fly it again.”

    The stripes of the American flag represent the blood of soldiers who have sacrificed for the stars (or states). The blood spilled to protect America. Replacing the states with an image of Obama would mean what? The blood spilt by veterans and soldiers for our President? Or by our President? The Democratic chairwoman evoked some powerfully unflattering symbolism there, and more disturbingly no one in their party headquarters objected to it and she is still determining if she can legally get away with publicly desecrating our flag again. This womans actions and comments infuriated me. She clearly has no respect for the veterans (the ones that had to protest this and the same ones who spilled blood in defense of America), and she has no respect for this country. She is quite arrogant in saying any objection is due to dislike of the President….No person or politician should be on our flag–period. It makes me feel a bit sick to know she is chairwoman of any organization seeking to represent America. Her actions are shameful, disrespectful, embarassing, arrogant, and sadly representative of our leadership in the US.

  • This is disgraceful. It appears he is now believing he is a dictator. I fought for our flag and what is stands for independance. I do not have any one to take it away.
    Vote Republican this year and support the right candidate!

  • I pledge allegiance to Obama?? We are in America right? The stripes of our flag stand for the blood spilt by the American heroes (soldiers/veterans) to give the states (symbolized by the stars) freedom and to keep America safe. Replacing the stars with a face of anyone (and more alarming, the president) means what? That the blood is now being spilt for or by him? The Dems evoked some unflattering symbolism with the desecrated flag they made in supposed tribute. I expect that kind of thing in a dictatorship not America. I never thought I’d see that kind of thing here, it was shocking. No respect for our soldiers, veterans or for anything the flag stands for. The chairwoman said she was consulting lawyers to see what her rights are (claiming free speech). They seem oblivious of their disrespect…reminds me of this quote….
    “It is by the goodness of God that in our country we have those three unspeakably precious things: freedom of speech, freedom of conscience, and the prudence never to practice either of them.”
    Mark Twain

    The second witness, a prophet who speaks for God is of the opinion, and I would challange anyone to quote a better source in the world… (which I also concluded with on my own). The ONLY candidate who has the integrity & not owned by the NWO to follow the CONSTITUTION is Dr. Ron Paul. He…is the last political helpmate for those whose hearts will hear truth. The champion of the constitution. As a veteran I say the commander in Chief is responsible, and must be impeached for TREASONOUS acts, this being a comparitively minor one, yet reflective of those of evil intent. Hear the opinions of the witness on my blog. The Blogathon Philabuster. The witness to evil must not remain silent.

  • That would be a flag to burn, not honor…Lord have mercy…

  • We know who would fly such flag now we need to know who would Make such a flag.

  • That lets all American’s know that he doesn’t belong in office as a President, he doesn’t have a clue as to what those Star’s mean, or the fact that those state’s either signed a treaty or were fought for by the Military of this Country. America, he doesn’t have a clue what it means to run this Country~~vote him out in November!!!

  • Daw

    Bill Maher, that’s who!

  • My mother sent me the article about the group that had this flag made and then put it on a flagpole-I was flabbergasted!! I don’t care how much you like the idiot in office, that’s not a justification to destroy the US Flag-him and his ungrateful wife show no respect for the soldiers who fought and died for their right to sit in the white house and as far as I’m concerned, EVERY service member should be very upset about this!! GOD BLESS AMERICA!!! if Obama gets re-elected, we are going to need all the help we can get-Obama is going to destroy what’s left of the USA!!

  • How dare they put the SOB’s picture on the American flag. He is no more American than the illegals who claim they belong here. He has no right to be there.
    I did not vote for him and I never will. He is a disgrace to this country. Our enemies hate us even more than they did before. This country is becoming like the countries we hate and who hate us. We are spiraling down a bottomless pit. Waite till 2013.

  • Good grief, people! Settle down! It wasn’t Obama who put his face on the flag, it was that ditzy woman in Lake County, Florida. I’m pretty sure that President Obama would be emarrassed by this.

    James, do you have anything of any “substance” to offer here? Do you have any honor?

  • Sandra Fortner

    I think this is going to far. we have had a lot of their presidents and they weren’t so all over themselves to put their face on the flag. The flag has not been changed in many many years and if it was changed please don’t put Obama’s face on it Or any face for that matter There is n one person in the world that is that grand to be put on the flag

  • The democratic Party should be sued for defacing the American Flag!!!!! This is against the law.
