OBAMA'S BASTARDIZATION OF AMERICAN ICONS SHOWS DISDAIN FOR STATES

Obamas Bastardization Of American Icons Shows Disdain For StatesAs the front page has reported, the Obama campaign is currently selling a print of the American flag that replaces the field of stars with his own logo. As anyone who made it through elementary school knows, those stars each represent one of the states in the union. Now take a look at the official Obama twitter account said of this piece of swag:

A poster to say there are no red states or blue states, only the United States

Do I have to restate the obvious here? The American flag as it exists makes that statement. There are fifty white stars with nothing to distinguish Red State from Blue State. What this Obama flag does is ominously replace the emblem of fifty sovereign entities with a political logo.

Of course, this isn't the first time that the president has bastardized an American icon. Do we all remember his version of the Great Seal of the United States?

Similar to what he's done to the flag, Obama replaced the those elements in the Great Seal, the shield that bears 13 stripes and stars that represent the sovereign states, with his own personal logo.

It appears to me that we have a pattern emerging. The president clearly seems to think that, at least as far as American iconography goes, representing the states is extraneous. Not surprising considering he seems to believe sovereign states are merely vestigial organs of a republic that's being shoved aside for a "small ‘d' democracy."

Every day there is more proof of obama's hatred of American and the people in it. He is a jerk that must be booted out of the country.

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.

And MR called 47% of the American populace enslaved victims that he can not be worried about.

To me the blood stains imply that he wants Americans to face the same fate as Amb. Stevens.
