Local Democrat Party places Obama face on U.S. flag

Democratic Party Office in Florida Flies Defaced American Flag With Obama’s Face Replacing the Stars. (Maybe we can call this the 57th Star Flag.)

Veteran Jim Bradford, who first took notice of what he calls a “disgrace,” did some research and found that it was in violation of the flag code passed by Congress. The law states, “The flag should never have placed upon it or any part of it, any marks, insignia, letters, words, figures, designs, picture or drawings of any nature.”

Flag desecration

 Flag desecration (or flag abuse) is a term applied to various acts that intentionally destroy, damage or mutilate a flag in public, most often a national flag. Often, such action is intended to make a political point against a country or its policies. Some countries have laws forbidding methods of destruction (such as burning in public) or forbidding particular uses (such as for commercial purposes); such laws may distinguish between desecration of the country’s own national flag and flags of other countries. Some countries have laws protecting the right to burn a flag as free speech.

Background

Actions that may be treated as flag desecration include:

  • Burning it[1]
  • Defacing it with slogans[1]
  • Daubing it with excrement, etc.
  • Walking on it
  • Spitting on it
  • Stoning it
  • Shooting it with guns
  • Hurling insults at it
  • Cutting or ripping it[1]
  • Dragging it through the dirt
  • Using it unconventionally, e.g.:
    • Hanging it upside down or reversed.[1] In some countries, however, this is also conventional protocol to indicate an emergency or problem.
    • Making toilet paper, napkins, doormats, and other such items bearing the image of the flag, so that the flag’s image will be destroyed or soiled in the course of everyday activities.[2]

    This right here is grounds for impeachment. Wake up congress and the senate. This is making people very angry that you allow this no account President to walk all over our flag and our constitution. We want justice or we start voting all democrates out of office.
