Desecration of the United States Flag

I am appalled at the desecration of our flag.

I would be equally outraged if the face of George Bush, Abraham Lincoln, Ronald Reagan or ANY President, President-elect or individual were superimposed on the flag of our country.

I'm sure this is probably some company capitalizing on the enthusiasm of the moment? I hope it's not something sanctioned by any official group or agency associated with the Obama campaign!

I think as this goes viral, and it will, someone sooner or later will find out who chose to deface our flag to idolize a man, albeit one who will be our President come Tuesday.

Can you begin to imagine the fury a similar flag with George Bush's face on it would have, or would, invoke? I hope everyone in America will voice their concern about this. Write to your elected officials, send letters to the editor, blog and spread the word.

Flag Code, Section 8g: "The flag should never have placed upon it, nor on any part of it, nor attached to it any mark, insignia, letter, word, figure, design, picture, or drawing of any nature." Section 8: "No disrespect should be shown to the flag of the United States of America." Section 8j: "The flag represents a living country and is itself considered a living thing."

Hat tip to Michelle Malkin!
