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.”

Quoting shimamab:

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.

Quoting Ednarooni160:

I gave a source..would like to see yours and if they were making money off of it.. I am not for "anyone" doing it..period..

Quoting notonepercenter:

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!!!!!!!

IF you only KNEW what this guy was about..but wait..you PROBABLY do..

The only source with both pics and commentary. Obviously can't link you to a campaign store that was used in 2004, sorry.

I don't know about Romney's campaign "officially" using these. I guess we'll all just have to save the outrage for Bush and Obama.

Are these done by the Romney campaign and are they making money off of them.. I would really like to know.

these shirts are NOT on the Romney official website. The Flag with Obama's campaign logo on it IS on Obama's official website.

The images below are examples of "flag abuse" by business, that is, if you believe that "flag desecration" should be an issue worthy of prosecution.  The images all come from the Internet from the business sites that sell these products.



The campaigns receive no profits from the merchandise because of federal election regulations. 

The Kerry merchandise was made in the United States, according to Mark Weiner, the president of Financial Innovations. The company, whose employees belong to the Communications Workers of America Union, sources most of its merchandise from union factories.

The only thing you push on CM is hatred and paranoia.  If you think our country is going to hell in a hand basket - then, please exit stage right!  Why on Earth would you or anyone want to live in a country where you "KNEW" that it's leader and his evil minions were hellbent on it's destruction.  Your cynical mind is poisonous.  The only thing I fear is paranoid, fear-driven, gun-toting, Bible-thumping, Apple pie eating, girls-next-door like EDNA!  I suspect you go about your day playing solitaire, eating MRE's, drinking Kool-AID, watching FOX NEWS, listening to Rush Limbaugh, wringing your hands, cleaning your guns, wishing for the paranoia that lives inside you to become the truth!  So, you can lean back and laugh, shaking your head and your finger at "us" saying "I told you so!"  Sickening!
