Since he was big enough to understand, I have taught my son to respect the institutions of his country. I’ve taught him to recite the pledge of allegiance and to place his hand over his heart when reciting it, and also when the Star Spangled Banner is played. It’s the least someone can do to respect this country, regardless of disagreements you may have with policy. So when I get this eye-opening photograph, I knew I had to share it. The loons and nutroots on the left make a big fucking deal when we (rightfully) call them unpatriotic, but they have no one to blame for the name calling than themselves.
I’d love to know the prevenance of the photo and the location of the event where this occured. Senator Barack Hussein Obama, Governor Bill Richardson, Senator Hillary Clinton and Ruth Harkin stand during the national anthem. Senator Obama doesn’t seem to be on the same page as the others when it comes to the national anthem (or pledge of allegiance).
This is one scary election season…
