Obama Offended by US Flag?
There’s one of those all too common forwarded forwarded emails going around. The big thing that makes this one different is that what it’s talking about is TRUE!
The email tells that Obama has ordered that the US flag is NOT to be flown at the US Army’s base of operations in Haiti where relief efforts are still underway to this day.
I checked this story out at truthorfiction.com and it is indeed true.
Obama gives some excuse of not wanting to offend the Haitian people and / or government. In truth, every other country participating in the relief effort in flying their flag. Yet our “president” doesn’t think we should fly ours.
Could it be that he, and not he Haitian people and / or government are the ones that are offended, even ashamed? I think so and I am offended, even ashamed OF HIM because of this.
We have a long standing tradition that our military and our government agencies fly the American flag wherever they set up operations. It is not intended as any sign of disrespect to other countries. It is pride in who we are and what we stand for.
Obviously Obama is not proud of America. If that’s the case, it’s yet another reason that he should NOT be president. In fact, he should be impeached and then deported back to Kenya where he came from!
