“All This Over Folding a Flag?!” – UPDATED
Yesterday, one of our readers, mom_of_2_girls, told us about having watched the flag folding ceremony on 9/11 and seeing Mrs. Obama asking asking her hubby a question while the ceremony was in progress. To which, Barry smugly nodded in the affirmative, prompting Michelin Man, err, Michelle to close her eyes and shake her head in disgust. Needles to say, mom_of_2_girls was VERY upset over this.
At first, I was unable to make out exactly what Michelle was asking, but after watching the video over and over again, it appears that she asked, “[All] this over folding a flag?!” Note: I placed “all” in brackets because her mouth is slightly obstructed during the first part of the sentence, however the gist of it in context can best be encapsulated by the word “all.”
Here’s the video which was uploaded to YouTube by another sharp observer, pleasevote2012:
As we have pointed out before, Obama and Michelle have Zero respect for the American flag.
To each of us, the American flag has different meanings. Undoubtedly, the American flag evokes a sense of pride and patriotism in those of us who actually do love our country and Her heritage. To Lefturds like the Obamas, it is just another political prop to be pulled out of the closet when votes are needed.
Well, the American flag isn’t just a prop; nor is it just some antiquated relic undeserving of respect and honor. To me, the American flag is a symbol of America, of Her Freedoms, and of those who have fought and died for Her so that We may all live a better life!
In answer to Mrs. Obama’s question, YES! Because of ALL the people who have laid down their lives for you and I, because of ALL the freedoms that We have been blessed with, because of ALL those who died on 9/11, and because of many, many more untold reasons, ALL of this over folding a flag!
Furthermore, regardless of what, exactly, was said by the Obamas during the flag folding ceremony, by their body language and disrespectful actions, they have once again demonstrated to Us that they have no respect for America, Her symbols, and Her traditions.
In short, the Obamas actions during the flag ceremony are a disgrace to ALL Americans and especially to the memory of those who died on 9/11.
Shame on the Obamas! And, shame on the Lame Stream Media for continuing to ignore this and other disgraceful and disrespectful acts committed by the Obamas!
UPDATE: It has been suggested that Michelle Obama might have said, “He needs to be more careful with that flag.” I am willing to entertain this as a legitimate possibility. If that is in fact what Michelle was saying, then I wish to apologize to her and commend her for finally showing some concern for the American flag. However, that being said, a word to the wise: It is ALWAYS disrespectful to speak out of turn during a flag folding ceremony unless it is an absolute emergency.Explore posts in the same categories: Abuse of Power, Obama Sucks, Opinion, patriotism, politics
