Obama, University of Iowa disrespect American flag – lays it on the ground for campaign event

american-flag1The only thing that might be surprising as Obama and the University of Iowa’s disrespect of the American flag is that they didn’t replace the 50 stars with a hammer and sickle, or just Obama’s face like some others have done.  Check out what the Obama campaign and University of Iowa did today to the American flag earlier today (From The Blaze photo credit University of Iowa):

The American Flag Code clearly states:

“No disrespect should be shown to the flag of the United States of America; the flag should not be dipped to any person or thing. Regimental colors, State flags, and organization or institutional flags are to be dipped as a mark of honor.”
It continues:

“The flag should never touch anything beneath it, such as the ground, the floor, water, or merchandise.”


At first the University apologized for this disrespect, but then they later backtracked and claimed that there was a ‘tarp’ under the flag. Can you see a tarp? Neither can I.

      I have now doubt that the university’s security cameras will show how respectually the tarp was laid down before the flag was gently laid upon it. Otherwise, why would they not admit their error?

    Your heading is inflammatory for no reason. OBAMA did not have anything to do with this. The UNIVERSITY and whoever they hired to hoist the flag DID. Please try some honesty here people ( I know it is hard), but please TRY.

    I am a veteran of the US Air Force and this picture makes me sick. Just one more example of how Obama followers are just like him, no respect for America or the flag. That clown has to go…….what a lousy excuse for a president. I am sure that Carter just gave up his worst president…..he is certainly no commander in chief.
