Group That Attacks Obama Also Attacks the American FlagA great fuss was made during the embarrassingly superficial ABC News presidential debate of April, 2008 about the fact that Barack Obama wears an American flag lapel pin some days, but not absolutely every day. Now, Republicans have an American flag scandal of their own. It seems that Republican activists have been busy sending around emails filled with nasty unsubstatiated rumors about Barack Obama, claiming that he is a secret Muslim spy for Al Qaeda who will fulfill the terrorist September 11 project if elected President. It's obvious poppycock to anyone with a working brain... but the trouble is that plenty of voters seem to have let their brains get kind of flabby these days. It's surprising the number of people who accept these emails at face value. The emails cite a married pair of missionaries who claim to have gone to Kenya and talked to people there to find the deep dark secrets about Barack Obama and his secret squad of African Muslim evildoers. The names of the missionaries are Celeste and Loren Davis. Celeste and Loren Davis seem to be very busy little bees. They don't just hate Barack Obama. They hate the American flag too. In a document that Loren Davis later tried to destroy, but was salvaged and saved as a PDF, Loren Davis claims that the common symbol of the 5 pointed star is, in fact, a symbol used by people who worship the Devil. Think for a minute, and you'll realize that you know one political symbol that is chock full of five pointed stars: The American flag. Yes, Loren Davis actually argues that the American flag is an evil symbol of a satanic plot to destroy Christianity. So, Republicans have been promoting the agenda of a man who hates the American flag. According to the Republicans' own simplistic view of patriotism, that makes Republicans shockingly unpatriotic. Of course, Republicans do tend to have a very shallow understanding of what patriotism really means. Patriotism is about much more than just waving the flag, or putting a little lapel pin in your jacket. We progressives understand that someone can wear a lapel pin of the American flag, and wave the flag around a lot, and still betray the principles of liberty, equality and justice that the flag is supposed to represent. That said, Loren Davis and his idea that the American flag is somehow a tool for demonic forces from Hell is quite insane - and another good reminder of the wisdom America's founding fathers had in separating church and state.
