Gun store comment & new Obama flag.

War Between the States veterans at Gettysburg, 1913.
So I was in a gun store the other day after dropping Rosey off at work and in addition to window shopping (the only kind of shopping I can afford these days) I was eavesdropping on the conversations which of course was all about politics and the portents of evil in the next Obama administration.
I listened idly until one guy piped up about what he expected to be fratricidal hostilities. Everybody got quiet. I then offered this comment: "You know, we're about to reinvent a class of Americans that hasn't been seen in almost a hundred years."
"What's that?" the counterman asked.
"Civil war veteran," I answered.
I was reminded of that conversation when I saw this post by Jim Hoft at Gateway Pundit: "New Obama Flag Looks Eerily Like Blood-Stained Walls at Benghazi Consulate>"
Talk about poor timing…
The Obama Campaign recently released their perfected version of the US flag.
You can purchase your O-flag at the Obama Campaign website for $35.
Hoft continues:
If the image looks familiar it could be because the red stripes resemble the bloody Benghazi hand prints. The bloodstained walls at the US consulate revealed that the US officials were dragged to their death by peaceful protesters terrorists.
Grim scene: Bloodstains at the main gate believed to be from one of the American staff members of the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya. (Daily Mail)
It’s hard to know what’s more offensive… That they desecrated the flag, or that they’re pushing a product that reminds Americans of the slaughter in Benghazi?
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.

"All this for a damn flag?"-Sept 11,2011 Michelle Obama

The psychopaths on Pa Ave won't stop.

If the Obamanation is reelected -- either by hook (gullible Boobus Americanus) or crook (expected, rampant voter fraud)-- we'll start seeing bloodied hand prints in our own neighborhoods within a few short years. Rather than wash them off perhaps the Gestapo (Homeland Security Agents, etc.) will just have a blue rubber stamp with the Obamanation's logo to "decorate" the hand prints...

IF and WHEN 'ABSOLVED' is available to purchase I think you will have more money than you will know what to do with it, (except for giving your wife a lot of spending money). I like the saying: I spend half my money on wild women & booze, the other half I spend foolishly. I do seriously believe that ABSLOVED will cure the money problems. hint-hint.

I find the comparison to BenGhazi a bit overwroght, but an excellent bit of giving the progressives a taste of their own type of manipulative medicine.

However, the flag itself, even without such a comparison, is even more disturbing. Putting a symbol on a flag is a very powerful thing. Putting up a Gadsden Flag or one of the various "Come and Take It" flags is an unambiguous message. So is flying a flag with a Red Star, or a hammer and sickle, etc.

The compulsion to put one's own, personal symbol on a national flag is an unapologetic indulgence in the cult of personality. As such, I can only think of a few instances of this type of behavior, and they never end well.

The O-flag has more in common with the First National Flag of the CSA than with the Starts and Stripes. Is that some kind of racist dog-whistle, perhaps?

Wow, I didn't make the connection between the flag logo and the bloody hand prints on the wall until you posted the article.

Made me think of this:

Was that flag made in China or the U.S.A.?

When that image is printed on a roll of toilet tissue, I am sure that it will sell well. To get around copyright issues, modify the "O" to "Oh crap!"

BTW - word verification to prove that I am not a robot is "arsamsof 19".
If the tissue is of any quality, it will be. If i was a robot, it would not matter.

William Flatt said...

I bet I could make a killing selling toilet tissue with the Obama 'O' on it, but I wouldn't use this design just because this whole Obama 'O' Flag issue is so damned offensive to all my sensibilities, not just my patriotic senses.

Better yet, Obama's face on some TP would be a great way for Real Americans to make Obama-lamadingdong kiss our @sses every day!

I saw one of these flags on a site after it was customized by adding what looked like a black dragon hand dragging the red stripes across the flag.

I won't buy the Obo flag for $35, but I'd pay more money for the one with the dragon claw.

I find the image of O'bomb-a's logo on a facsimile of the US flag downright disturbing. Yeesh, what is wrong with people?
Next thing you know, O'bomb-a is gonna be calling himself "His Excellency, President for Life, Field Marshal Al Hadji Doctor[B] Barack Hussein O'bomb-a, VC, DSO, MC, Lord of All the Beasts of the Earth and Fishes of the Seas and Conqueror of the US Constitution in North America in general and DC in particular" and yet the people who identify as Democrats will still defend and cheer his every action. Sick and sad.

It's funny that I thought of Idi Amin. His record of political repression, ethnic persecution, extrajudicial killings, nepotism, corruption, and gross economic mismanagement is starting to become comparable.

Frankly, I don't give a damn about the flag bullshit. The real deal is what Obama, through his ass sucking AG just did.
I'm sure you remember a few months ago when O'bambardiar signed into law the Orwellian NDAA. Then, the UCLA file a lawsuit on behalf of four well known journalists who proved to one Judge Forest, that they could possibly be arrested and permanently detained via the NDAA, with not one shred of "due process", as their journalistic exploits might juxtaposition them with parties listed as "terrorist"
organizations and people, which by this statute, would taint them by virtue of "supporting of" said listed entities.
Judge Forest, after vehemently ripping Obama's DOJ attorneys for plain stupidity, if not flagrant abuse of the English language, issued a summary execution of the DOJ's arguments, and found for the Plaintiff's, not only in heart, but in logic and Constitutional law.
Last week, Judge Forest, a woman, summarily issued a ruling, stating a PERMANENT injunction against those NDAA Sections which were at the heart of this case. She said..quote.."First Amendment rights are guaranteed by the Constitution and cannot be legislated away," Judge Forrest wrote last week. "This Court rejects the Government's suggestion that American citizens can be placed in military detention indefinitely, for acts they could not predict might subject them to detention." Damn. At lease someone with a brain and a heart has the balls to stare down, if not grab the DOJ by the balls and shove them up their ass.
However, here's the REAL OBAMA.
Immediately, the DOJ submitted an emergency plea to the Second Circuit of Appeals, to Stay Judge Forest's ruling. And guess what.
An Obama appointed sycophant Judge named, Lohier, single hand-idly gutted her PERMANENT ruling until Sept 28. when another 3 Judge panel will review Judge Forest' ruling again. Ahhhhh yes...CHAINS we can believe in. Welcome to the REAL world of civil Oblivion. Now, excuse my while I fucking puke.

Hell, I adorn fresh toilet paper with the Obamanation's image every day -- have for years!
