Obama Campaign Redefines American Flag as "FORWARD"

The whole controversy of the Obama logo in the American flag was B.S. It was not a controversy. All sorts of politicians use the American flag and redesign it into their political campaigns. Red, white, and blue is patriotic, and we all feel patriotic. So we package ourselves in the American flag.

What is wrong is to instead of saying you are American, you are patriotic, is to say America is you. The American flag stands for you, not the country.

And now the Obama campaign has stepped over the line and done that.
A video posted on the Obama campaign's YouTube channel is titled "A Symbol of Moving Forward" and uses an image of the American flag. I thought that there is no way that this could be as bad as it looks. I thought this must be a coincidental title and image juxtaposition. I was wrong.

Now the Obama campaign itself does not equate the American flag with Obama's vision of Дmєлiќa, but the title insinuates it means "Forward." What they have done instead is let the Chief Operations Officer, Matthew O'Connor, of a small business that makes American flags redefine the flag for them. He gets the symbolism completely wrong.

The United States flag was created as a symbol of moving forward. Written into the fabric of the flag is the notion of change. As a living example we can constantly improve and reach our greatest potential.

The stars on the blue field represent a new constellation. In 1795 the flag bloated to 15 stripes. In 1818 a law passed fixing the number of stripes to the original 13 stripes to honor the original colonies and the number of stars would represent the number of states.

Fixed design. Represents the states. Honor the past. Where's the change? Where's the "forward?"

People coming to America see it as a land of freedom, liberty, and opportunity. Many of us see the flag as a symbol of freedom and liberty.

We do not see the American flag as a symbol of change. We do not see it as a symbol of "forward."

Making the Absurd Hilarious

When the POTUS' official YouTube channel has a video that likens voting for the first time to losing your virginity you just can not believe the absurdity of it. How on earth do you parody this? When the POTUS talks about women as if they only care about reproduction and lady parts the video watches like a dry wit dig at him.

TokenLibertarianGirl (Julie Borowski) has upped the absurdity and has made the following hilarious spoof:

Just in case you missed it, here is the gross video from the POTUS:

No big deal ... maybe

In Greensboro, N.C. some voters tried voting for Romney and the machine kept coming up Obama. Supposedly this is not a big deal and happens from time to time.

The problem has been corrected, supposedly. Yeah early voting! Several potential days of fraud!

In case you have not heard this yet, there is a narrative that Romney's friends are creating the election machines and will steal the election for him, just like they did for Bush. Hail the Bain voting machines.

I figure there's not much to worry about, then I saw the following video. Again; yeah early voting! Several potential days of fraud!
