Democrats dump flags in the trash… literally.

(Cross-posted from Bitsblog)

Fox News:

John McCain’s campaign prepared to accuse Democrats on Saturday of leaving behind 12,000 miniature American flags after Barack Obama’s nomination acceptance speech last Thursday in Denver.

Boy Scouts have arrived with 84 trash bags full of bundles of flags at the site of a McCain rally scheduled to begin at 12:30 p.m. local time in Colorado Springs.

The campaign says the flags were recovered from Invesco Field after the Democrats concluded their convention there, and they are going to be used as part of the warm-up ceremonies before McCain takes the stage for the rally.

FOX News has been told a vendor at Invesco Field found the flags, which were going to be thrown out, and turned them over to the McCain campaign.

Veterans in Colorado Springs are expected to distribute the flags to the audience at the rally.

First of all, a great response by the McCain people.

But more importantly, this is an example of how the Democrats love their country.

Obama has faced questions about his patriotism since the beginning of the Democratic primary, and has set up a Web site specifically designed to fight such charges.

And even after this, I’ll bet he still wonders why this image of not being patriotic hounds him.  This is what we’re up against, people. This is depressingly typical of the Democrats.

Of course we’ll all be told Obama had nothing to do with it. I say you’re judged by the company you keep.

Western Standard blog, where this pic is from, points up there are laws about this stuff:

For edification, let me post portions of U.S. Code Title 36 Chapter 10.

Section 176 (Respect for Flag):

“The flag should never touch anything beneath it, such as the ground, the floor, water, or merchandise.”

“The flag should never be fastened, displayed, used, or stored in such a manner as to permit it to be easily torn, soiled, or damaged in any way.”

“The flag, when it is in such condition that it is no longer a fitting emblem for display, should be destroyed in a dignified way, preferably by burning.”

Well, at least the Democrats didn’t toss the flag in with a bunch of candy wrappers, greasy discarded pizza boxes, torn up Obama signs, and empty water bottles, right?

Ummm. Yeah.

Oh, and no, before you start… these were not one time use things, not that it matters. A goodly chunk of them were the cloth variety, and large enough to be seen on TV… but apparently not large enough in the hearts of those carrying them, to care for them properly.


Well, the Democrats are now claiming by way of the Huff and Puff, that it’s all a lie, that the flags were stolen.

Lie. OK, I know… what else would you expect the Democrats to say? But still… they’re lying.

Look… Call Carl Cameron a liar if you will…


… and I’ll label you a fool for your trouble.  But are you really going to unload your political venom on a bunch of boy scouts? Oh, wait… I seem to recall something about something shouted at some boy scouts at the DNC back in 2000. Maybe they WOULD unload on the boys, huh?
