Although the Federal rules do not allow this to be done to our Flag, it is not a crime.
At a DNC office in Florida, veterans were angered at the flag, and demanded it be removed. Many tried to get others to understand the “Stalinist” imagery such a flag evokes.
An American flag with President Obama’s image in place of the stars flew over a Florida county’s Democrat headquarters long enough to enrage local veterans who called the altered banner “a disgrace.”
Lake County Democratic Party officials took down the flag, which flew just below a standard Old Glory on the flagpole outside headquarters in Tavares following complaints by local veterans. But merely taking it down wasn’t enough for several local veterans, who said they fought for the flag Betsy Ross made famous, not one with a politician on it.
Hurlbert said Tuesday’s incident was the first time anyone had complained about the flag, which she received as a gift two months ago.
“It leads me to believe that it’s not about the flag,” she told FoxNews.com. “Certain elements cannot accept Barack Obama as president.”
Hurlbert said she intends to contact an attorney regarding the matter and remained non-committal as to whether she’ll fly the flag again.
“I won’t say no and I won’t say yes,” she said. “We want to find out what our legal rights are.”
