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