Veterans Angry Over American Flag Featuring President Obama

Some Florida veterans are livid at an American flag that not only featured stripes, but replaced the stars with President Obama’s face.

The flag featuring President Obama was hung outside the Lake County Democratic Party headquarters in the Orlando. However, it was removed Tuesday after a small group of locals threatened to take it down.

“I can’t describe how upset was because you just don’t do that to the American flag,” Korean War veteran Van Beck said told local affiliate WFTV-TV.

“Joseph Stalin, pictures of Mao, pictures of Adolph Hitler. The pomp, the ceremony — the flags like that,” added Marine Corps vet John Masterjohn  .
