Liberal site advertises sale of ‘freak flags,’ desecrated US flags

An American flag with President Obama’s image in place of the stars drew outrage last year when seen flying outside a local Democratic Party office in Florida, and again last month when it was spotted at the 50th anniversary of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.’s 1963 “I Have a Dream” speech in D.C.

The desecrated flag drew so much attention that it may have sparked a cottage industry all its own, with imitation being the sincerest form of flattery.

According to Newsbusters, the liberal website Talking Points Memo is running advertisements for Freak Flags, a company which creates flags designed like the U.S. flag but with the stars in the canton pushed off the side of the blue field while other symbols are featured in the center.

Symbols like the Star of David, Christian cross, or the U.S. dollar sign — the idea of each is a left-wing critique of those who “put Israel first” or “put Jesus first” or “put Wall St. first,” as reported by Newsbusters.

In the “about us” section of their website, Freak Flags boasts:

Freak Flags are just things designed to freak people out.  That’s all we’re trying to do.  Enjoy our First Amendment rights expressing our concept of freedom and sharing it with our customers.

And to make matters worse, NewsBusters managing editor Ken Shepherd notes that a review of the company’s website’s blog shows some anti-Semitic rantings regarding the president’s call for airstrikes in Syria.
