" Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama says he doesn't wear an American flag lapel pin because it has become a substitute for "true patriotism" since the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. "
Right, since WHEN is displaying the flag a substitute for patriotism? It's ALWAYS been a display and symbol of true patriotism! This contrary-to-logic-babbling is just the sort of pseudo-intellectualism we've all come to know and loathe from the democommies.
Sure, waving a flag doesn't automatically make you a patriot, it's what's in your heart. Displaying the flag is a symptom, however.
So, he's going to take off his flag to appeal to the anti-Americans, and migically he is somehow MORE patriotic??? I'm sure that trend will catch on and everyone will rush to remove all their displays of patriotism, because in fact, they're evidently trivial and meaningless displays because Mr. Obama the trendsetter said so... Oh wait, most of the democommies aren't the ones waving flags and being patriotic anyway, so I guess they won't have to work very hard to follow his "lead." It seems like Obama has catching up to do with the rest of his fans. Maybe if he wanted to get more nuts behind him he could put his lapel back on... but get this- he could put it on UPSIDE DOWN! Now THAT would appeal to the radical left and get him some crazies to vote for him! Heck, he could even put Mexican flag pin ABOVE the U.S. Flag pin. That would be some top of the line pandering right there! Maybe even a China pin above that, though that might be a more fitting tactic for Hitlary...
Patriots are men and women of action who display the flag on top of whatever support they give. I'll let you draw your own conclusions as to whether or not it's fitting that he is no longer wearing the flag.
