Obama Campaign Actually Replaces 50 Stars on American Flag With Campaign ‘O’ Logo

If you go to barackobama.com right now, you can buy your very own limited edition American flag print. But this isn’t any ordinary American flag; this is an American flag that replaces the 50 stars representing the 50 states with President Obama’s campaign logo.

The Obama campaign is selling the limited edition “Our Stripes: Flag poster” for $35 on its official website. The screen print was designed by Ross Bruggink and Dan Olson, according to the site.

As Fox News’ Todd Starnes points out, there is also another print for sale called “Our Stripes: Country Print” that also looks like an American flag but in the shape of the United States. Again, in the top left corner sits the Obama campaign logo instead of the 50 stars.

Promoting the new item, Obama’s official campaign Twitter account tweeted:

“The United States of Obama?” Starnes asks in his headline.

Find out how people are reacting to the Obama campaign’s version of the American flag on Twitter at Twitchy.com.

Just for the record, an American flag should never bear “any mark, insignia, letter, word, figure, design, picture, or drawing of any nature,” according to U.S. flag code.

Additionally, U.S. Flag Code-Title 4, Ch. 1, Sec. 3 prohibits the “Use of flag for advertising purposes.”

In case you find it hard to believe that the campaign of the sitting president of the United States would sell an item that replaces the stars on the sacred American flag with their own logo, we snapped some screen shots to prove it’s true.

This isn’t the first time that President Obama and American flags have sparked controversy. In fact, his campaign appears to have a real problem understanding U.S. flag code.

TheBlaze previously reported that the Obama campaign left a giant American flag on the ground while they were setting up for an official campaign event at the University of Iowa, a blatant violation of U.S. flag code that states an American flag should never touch the ground.

Further, just last week a Texas school district was forced to remove an American flag that has Obama’s face plastered on it. Again, just as in this most recent case, flag code states an American flag should never bear “any mark, insignia, letter, word, figure, design, picture, or drawing of any nature.”

I'm sure he's the only one who has used the flag, in an altered state, to campaign with. Oh wait!!! Check out the pics I posted...get ready to be outraged!

Quoting shimamab:

Noticing that would mean their "righteous outrage" would be silly...so I say this tiny detail will be glossed over for the foreseeable future. :)


Quoting PamR:


I don't know if you noticed, but that's not actually a picture of the flag.



Gimmie a break! It implies that something is very wrong in this country period.As I said id be equally as outraged if it were another president..Reagan even!

Yes, they were. And if you don't want to compare O to B, then stop the "outrage" over things other president's have done before.

Good job Edna!  This is really something to get worried about!  That's Obama's next plan of action in his secretive plan to destroy America and hand it over to the Muslim Brotherhood.  He already replaced all flags in DC with his Obama Nation flags.  He's coming to your neighborhood next to get your flag, too!  Be sure to stock up on those for your bunker, too! GEEEEEEEZZZZZ!!!!!!!

And yet nobody will care, they'll all say it's ok. But if Romney did it the country would be appalled.
