Leave it to the left to show their disgusting carelessness toward the American Flag, a symbol of everything the left hates; freedom and liberty for the poor and oppressed of the world- and a symbol which commands respect for people the left constantly violate- the men and women who have served in uniform to safeguard our nation’s sovereignty.
- The flags were hung under orders from D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser amid multiple displays of solidarity with Ukraine in the D.C. area as the European country undergoes a Russian military invasion.
Of course it comes from leftist- Muriel Boswer…
If you ask yourself- if what you are about to see- really matters, you most likely are a part of the problem.
Ben Bergquam, an investigative journalist and reporter for Real Americas Voice and a frequent guest on the War Room with Steve Bannon, didn’t just keep his head down and pass by this obvious slight to the United States of America.
He noticed, he stopped, he made a video, and he gave the offense a name- and he said something. Then he elevated the people who did not give in to the left’s virtue signaling garbage.
What may appear to be a small gesture- is an important gesture to the watchmen of Liberty, who have stood guard over a fragile experiment in government for over 200 years, and the honor of those who mourn over fallen service members.
So yes- this is a big deal.
This happened in our Nation’s Capitol- on our shared sacred ground, but with the left- nothing is sacred.
“Virtue signaling Democrats put the Ukrainian flag above the US flag all over Washington DC! #Pathetic slap in the face to every American, especially those who have served our country, but God bless the Willard Hotel!” Bergquam wrote, describing the following video:
This is highly offensive, no matter what Ukraine is going through at the time.
For those paying attention to the problem, here is some more information:
The U.S. Flag Code was first published in 1923 — nearly two decades before Congress adopted it in 1942. Although the Supreme Court reversed the act of flag-protection laws as a violation of free speech in 1989, the Flag Code continues to be followed by many as an act of tradition rather than a law.
But that doesn’t mean we should allow it. When enough people pressure the influencers who make these disgusting adjustments to our traditions, things will start to change in our favor again.
§7. Position and manner of display
(c) No other flag or pennant should be placed above or, if on the same level, to the right of the flag of the United States of America, except during church services conducted by naval chaplains at sea, when the church pennant may be flown above the flag during church services for the personnel of the Navy. No person shall display the flag of the United Nations or any other national or international flag equal, above, or in a position of superior prominence or honor to, or in place of, the flag of the United States at any place within the United States or any Territory or possession thereof: Provided, That nothing in this section shall make unlawful the continuance of the practice heretofore followed of displaying the flag of the United Nations in a position of superior prominence or honor, and other national flags in positions of equal prominence or honor, with that of the flag of the United States at the headquarters of the United Nations.
(d) The flag of the United States of America, when it is displayed with another flag against a wall from crossed staffs, should be on the right, the flag’s own right, and its staff should be in front of the staff of the other flag.
(e) The flag of the United States of America should be at the center and at the highest point of the group when a number of flags of States or localities or pennants of societies are grouped and displayed from staffs.
(f) When flags of States, cities, or localities, or pennants of societies are flown on the same halyard with the flag of the United States, the latter should always be at the peak. When the flags are flown from adjacent staffs, the flag of the United States should be hoisted first and lowered last. No such flag or pennant may be placed above the flag of the United States or to the United States flag’s right.
(g) When flags of two or more nations are displayed, they are to be flown from separate staffs of the same height. The flags should be of approximately equal size. International usage forbids the display of the flag of one nation above that of another nation in time of peace.
(h) When the flag of the United States is displayed from a staff projecting horizontally or at an angle from the window sill, balcony, or front of a building, the union of the flag should be placed at the peak of the staff unless the flag is at half-staff. When the flag is suspended over a sidewalk from a rope extending from a house to a pole at the edge of the sidewalk, the flag should be hoisted out, union first, from the building.
(i) When displayed either horizontally or vertically against a wall, the union should be uppermost and to the flag’s own right, that is, to the observer’s left. When displayed in a window, the flag should be displayed in the same way, with the union or blue field to the left of the observer in the street.
Is Violating the Flag Code Illegal?
No. While the U.S. Flag Code is a federal law, guidelines are only stated within the voluntary and non-binding language such as, “should” and “custom,” meaning there is no penalty for violating any of its provisions. This is because of the Supreme Court’s act in declaring the law unconstitutional in United States v. Eichman.
So- are you ready to vote for some American first candidates? We may even get some who want to change that SCOTUS ruling about our flag.
This is for the Willard Hotel. Call them and thank them.
