This one came in the inbox again. Notice how the email has been modified slightly from a previous post Obama vs American Flag.
Whoever is sending these stupid emails needs to do a better job. The Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt (FUD) campaign from the religious right is ridiculous. Its the same techniques they use to stereotype non-Evangelical, non-Protestant religions.
My interpretation is that the sender wants us to get angry with Obama and brand brand him as unpatriotic. The real question is do these stupid Obama emails cause people to vote for McCain? Or do they drive more people to Barack Obama?
Obama Explains His National Anthem Stance
Is this guy crazy or what!
Hot on the heels of his explanation for why he no longer wears a flag pin, presidential candidate Senator Barack Obama was forced to explain why he doesn’t follow protocol when the National Anthem is played.
According to the United States Code, Title 36, Chapter 10, Sec. 171…… During rendition of the national anthem when the flag is displayed, all present except those in uniform are expected to
stand at attention facing the flag with the right hand over the heart.
‘As I’ve said about the flag pin, I don’t want to be perceived as taking sides,’ Obama said.
‘There are a lot of people in the world to whom the American flag is a symbol of oppression. And the anthem itself conveys a war like message. You know, with the bombs bursting in air and all. It should be swapped for something less parochial and less bellicose. I like the song ‘I’d Like to Teach the World to Sing.’
If that were our anthem, then I might salute it.’
WHAAAAAAAT!!!!!!!!!! Yes, ladies and gentlemen, this could possibly be our next president. I, for one, am speechless . .
He wants to be our President, but he doesn’t want to take our side? ‘…people in the world…symbol of oppression…?’ He’s not running for President of the world. He’s running for President of the United States. Is he with us or against us? Pass It On Before It’s too Late. Let’s Teach The World About This Idiot.
