In National Review, Mark Steyn Pushes Stupid ‘Obama Flag’ Fake Outrage

Moronic

Here’s a pile of ridiculous garbage by Mark Steyn at National Review, pushing the moronic “Obama flag” fake outrage: Bowing to the Mob.

I see the Obama campaign has redesigned the American flag, and very attractive it is too. Replacing the 50 stars of a federal republic is the single “O” logo symbolizing the great gaping maw of spendaholic centralization. And where the stripes used to be are a handful of red daubs, eerily mimicking the bloody finger streaks left on the pillars of the U.S. consulate in Benghazi as its staff were dragged out by a mob of savages to be tortured and killed. What better symbol could one have of American foreign policy? Who says the slick hollow vapid marketing of the Obama campaign doesn’t occasionally intersect with reality?

People like Mark Steyn are just dishonest, bigoted opportunists, raking in the cash by pandering to the ignorant, perpetually angry right wing. His comparison of an Obama campaign graphic to a photo of blood smears from Libya is deranged and sick, designed solely to inflame the easily inflamed emotions of their Fox News-indoctrinated base.

Notice also that Steyn is still pushing another completely bogus outrage — the false claim that the Libyans photographed carrying Ambassador Stevens’s body were “dragging” him out to be “tortured and killed.”

In the real world, these Libyans were trying to save Ambassador Stevens’s life. They were the good guys. But Mark Steyn continues to smear them as murderous savages even after the real story comes out.

Here’s the truth about presidential campaigns and the US flag. And speaking of Fox News:
