The Democrat party in Tavares Florida was asked by a group of veterans to remove a flag bearing the image of Barack Obama, in violation of Florida statute and the US Flag Code. She reluctantly took it down and has now issued her statement to the press.
"Hurlbert said Tuesday's incident was the first time anyone had complained about the flag, which she received as a gift two months ago. "It leads me to believe that it's not about the flag," she told Fox News.com. "Certain elements cannot accept Barack Obama as president."
So in response to her flagrant use of the race card I had to tell her how I felt (a good progressive always wants to know how we feel about things).
Dear Nancy Hurlburt,
I am appalled that you would violate the law of the great state of FL by displaying the desecration of the US Flag, and then pull out the race card. Where in the blue blazes do you get the idea that you have a right to desecrate the flag by placing an image of the president on it, in violation of Florida Statutes > Title XVIII > Chapter 256 > § 256.05.
"Statute 256.05, which covers improper use of state or United States flag, or other symbol of authority, reads: "No person shall, in any manner, for exhibition or display:
"(1) Place or cause to be placed any word, figure, mark, picture, design, drawing or advertisement of any nature upon any flag, standard, color, ensign or shield of the United States or of this state, or authorized by any law of the United States or this state; or "
(2) Expose to public view any such flag, standard, color, ensign or shield upon which shall have been printed, painted or otherwise produced, or to which shall have been attached, appended, affixed or annexed any such word, figure, mark, picture, design, drawing or advertisement."And I am further amazed at the audacity to call the veterans, who asked you to remove this abomination, racist. Your lack of civility and unwillingness to compromise is what is fueling the class warfare going on in this nation right now.
Do not think of yourself too highly, you and anyone like you that thinks they can violate any law they want and then denigrate the good name of concerned citizens is the exact thing that is causing the class warfare. The concerned citizens, and in this case veterans, were asking that you not OFFEND them. But not only have you offended them with your abominable display but also by your uncivil words and actions after the fact.
You Democrats have become the bane of this nation not its savior as you would like to believe.
