Sheesh, and it actually flew over the Florida Democratic headquarters! Until some angry veterans raised Hell about it…
Don Van Beck, executive director of the Veterans Memorial at Fountain Park in Leesburg, told WFTV that seeing the flag made his blood boil.
“I can‘t describe how upset was because you just don’t do that to the American flag,” he said.
The veterans, saying the flag violated U.S. code that prohibits “marks, insignia, letters, words, figures, designs, picture or drawings of any nature,” demanded it be removed.
Bradford and other veterans approached the Democratic Headquarters with a copy of the flag code, intending to remove the flag.
Van Beck offered a POW/MIA flag to fly in its place, the Sentinel reported, but Party chairwoman Nancy Hulbert threatened to call the police.
“This is private property,” she told the veterans. “This is private property. You’re not allowed to touch anything. I’ll call the police.”
It’s not a Koran burning, but maybe our president will take a few minutes to apologize for this act of desecration, too.
