Another Sipsey Street prediction comes true.

Remember this?
When I ran the story about the Obama campaign's flag desecration last Thursday, I made this prediction:
Personally, I find such a bloody-handed flag to be refreshingly, if unintentionally, honest on the part of collectivists and would suggest that if you want one you'd better get it now because I'm sure the offer will be pulled down shortly on order of Obamanoid Central Command in Chicago.
Well, that didn't take long. As Thomas Lifson reports in the American Thinker: Obama campaign send desecrated flag down the memory hole.

Honestly, I've always seen flag worship as a problem, not something to admire. It's a visualization of statism. The Obama manipulation is simply making a bad thing worse, attempting to hijack the meaning behind the flag for his own political gains.

When I saw it, I saw the malice Obama has for the West.

Carney's official press release:
"What flag? There IS no flag. There never WAS a flag like that. Never. You never saw that, it wasn't there. This whole lie is concocted by the Tea party and right wing extremists."

Talk about sending it down the memory hole - they're REALLY cleaning this one up. Usually I can go to and get a copy of a page I missed or didn't copy to my hard drive while looking at it the first time (for "posterity", y'know).

They generally do a capture 3 or 4 times a month, sometimes more often if the site warrants it due to frequent changes.

Guess what? There are NO site captures of the store recorded since July 27th of LAST YEAR.

That's what the Ministry of Truth does.

Hmm, I am tempted to make my own and show up at Obama-Biden rallies and burn it.
