Sarah Palin Signs American Flags at Tea Party, Liberals say Palin "Desecrated" Flag

by the Left Coast Rebel

My local news thought the following story was important enough to dedicate a large early morning segment to it.

They played this video wherein The Guardian caught up with Sarah Palin in Reno, Nevada, and filmed her signing autographs for fans:

No big deal, right? Well, Salon lib writers want you to take note of Palin at 1:30 on the needle. Look. Look closer. See it? It's a smoking, flag-desecrating, double-barreled shotgun.

In other words, Palin 'signed' an American flag which is a clear, imprisonable violation of the Flag Code and today's Wag the Dog tail-chasing leftist gotcha moment.

Salon points us to the precise section of the code:

Subsection 8, part (g) reads: "The flag should never have placed upon it, nor on any part of it, nor attached to it any mark, insignia, letter, word, figure, design, picture, or drawing of any nature."
Ah, yes neo-Bolshevik progressives always refer to Subsection 8 of the Flag Code when a clear example of flag desecration comes into play. Except, of course, when the American flag is being burned. Then it is Consitutionally-protected free speech.

Bob Owens nails this level of intellectual deformation:

I've always found Salon to be one of the most informative web sites on the entire Internet...though not for the reasons you might think. Like many other sites that feature and attract progressives, Salon serves as a chronicle of the "liberal condition," collecting the insecurities and psychological projection of its writers and its intended audience.

Some interesting comments from the Salon article:

She's wrapped herself in the flag so often

she thinks it's part of the new Sarah Palin apparel line, now available at Walwart.



Take this story down. This is something you would see on Fox news if it were a Democrat. Don't sink to their level and promote scandalism. She probably signs flags every single day and any person with common sense knows that isn't desecrating the flag. Who cares about Flag Code? People fly flags at night without proper illumination of the flag everyday.

scandalism: journalism that promotes and hypes menial events to scandal


The photographer is just as much to blame...

as you are not supposed to photograph the flag for personal/monetary gain, either. This is an embarrassing article, and Salon should be ashamed for putting it on their site.


And drumroll.....

The law against signing a flag is unconstitutional

If a law against burning a flag is unconstitutional, then so is a law against signing one.

Ah, yes, that sums it up!


  1. Well, it may be illegal; it WAS in poor taste. So let's start demanding more respect for the flag and beat the living daylights out of anyone trying to burn or stomp on it. OOPS, that would be liberals and muslims; wouldn't it? Forget I said that; we shouldn't disturb the "enlightened ones."

  2. Gorges, in regard to the Muslims burning our flag:

    I was thinking of marketing, (if it already hasn't been done), toilet paper that has every flag of every Muslim nation on it.


    Diapers. Feminine pads. Medicated butt-wipes. Lesbian-only bikinis. Store-bought bacon packaging.

    I could go on and on.

    Oh no! Don't let NPR know I said all this! I might get fired! At least then Juan Williams and I could hang out more often. LOL!

    ps: I will be attending a debate here in Danbury, CT, on Monday the 25th. It will be between Chris Murphy, (Pelosi-sniffing young liberal-in-training) and Sam Caligiuri, a Republican. Not that I am all hopped up about the Republican. No. But I am so looking forward to grilling Murphy. It should be epic. True, this is CT politics. But it involves a Congressional seat. Murphy already screwed us with the bailout.

  3. I love this post. It really points up the hypocrisy and lack of consistant application of recognized standards with respect to honoring the American flag.

    Gotta love the progressive collectivist hypocrites.

    As I read the list of "what isn't appropriate" I am amazed at how much, and in so many ways the American flag is disrepected today.

    But then why should I, or anyone for that matter be surprised given our Supreme Court decisions.

    It's okay to burn the American flag in protest as a matter of free speech (the lefists here loud and clear).Yet some idiots think it is deecration of the same flag if someone writes on it. Hmm...

    I think I am going to by a thousands flags. I am going to sign each and everyone of them. And guess what...?

    It will be me exercising my FREEDOM OF SPEECH in acknowledging my suport for and my love of country.
