Stupid leftist flag flap of the day (Updated)


Oh no! Congressman Allen West sullied the American Flag and violated federal law by going on a scuba dive with Old Glory!

Golly, it sure is awful to see a retired U.S. Army Lieutenant Colonel behave so scandalously towards the flag. Surely no honorable military member would do such a thing, right?

Well, the U.S. Navy takes Old Glory under. Look at this recruiting site:

The Navy also conducts re-enlistments underwater, complete with the American Flag:

So does the Army:

Yes, the Army:

So does the Air Force:

The Coast Guard even paints one special buoy in Old Glory's colors and -- *gasp* -- puts it in the water:

Francis Scott Key buoy

So I suppose it matters what you're doing with the flag when you let it touch the water, doesn't it? Can we stop the stupidity now, Mr. Hendley?


6/17/2011 Update: Perhaps the lefties are just jealous because their attitude toward the flag tends to be, um, somewhat less conventional?

More of a concern to me that divers are standing on the reef...

I understand it may be difficult for you to actually read the law, but it does not apply to military personnel.

I know, reading is tough, but sometimes you have to do it to understand facts.

Who are you talking to? Me? If so, please illuminate me.
