Sarah Palin Disrespects Our Flag: Cashes In On “Patriotism”

by Ben Hoffman

Sarah Palin is making the rounds these days — acting like she’s patriotic for the sheer sake of making money off the right-wing sheep who are desperate for a leader. She’s made millions of dollars during the past two years spreading fear and hatred, while dividing our country into “real” Americans and I guess, the non-Americans, who in her mind are the people who don’t think like she does.

Below is a picture of her bus.

Since she doesn’t currently hold any office, nor is she running for office, the flag on her bus is purely for advertising purposes, which violates the U.S. Flag Code.

The U.S. Flag Code – Respect for flag
(i) The flag should never be used for advertising purposes in any manner whatsoever. It should not be embroidered on such articles as cushions or handkerchiefs and the like, printed or otherwise impressed on paper napkins or boxes or anything that is designed for temporary use and discard.

The flag is on the front of the bus where it will undoubtedly be hit by stones kicked up by other vehicles.

She’s also using the Constitution — which is on the side of her bus — for advertising purposes.

It kind of makes you wonder why right-wingers hate our country so much.
