The Politics of Flags
I for one seem to remember recent flaps over the display of the Confederate battle flag as part of various southern state flags. It fact protests against such displays by leftists ignorant of history resulted in the recent removal of the "stars and bars" from the Georgia state flag by order of the Republican governor Sonny Purdue. Imagine the outcry if the Confederate flag were prominently and proudly displayed in the office of a Republican candidate for high office such as Mr Huckabee or Mr McCain.
It would appear that the display of the Cuban flag replete with the countenance of the mass murderer Ernesto "Che" Guevara is no big deal when given a prominent place in the campaign office of the Democratic candidate for president (Barak Hussein Obama) who promises "change"and incidentally refuses to wear a US flag pin on his lapel. One can only hope that such "change" is not accomplished by Ernesto's tool of choice which was the projectile from a Colt model 1911 .45cal semi auto pistol applied to the back of a political opponent's head.
