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

by the Left Coast Rebel

My local news here in San Diego 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. Coming from people that don't hesitate to burn a flag, bitching about signing one seems childish at best.

  2. I am on the S Palin Bangwagon, but she should not have 'signed" the US flag. She should know better than that... I am disappointed and I hope to goodness she does not ever do it again, if she really did this. Can you imagine one of our Fore fathers do this... or Reagan?

    1) The Flag will outlast all of us with God's Mercy.
    2) It's just a bit too freaky to think one is good enough to sign the Flag. If Barry had done it, I'd be throwing up by now.

    Be Fair Folks.

    And Finally, Did She Really Do This?

  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.


    How's that all you progressive collectivist... Whatever

  4. With all that is not being done and being done by the current govt and congress and POTUS, this is what is considered news!
