Obama calls for a ban on the Revolutionary War era Gadsden flag

which has been widely used as a banner for the Tea Party.

Speaking at an NAACP dinner this evening, President Obama called for a ban on the Revolutionary War era Gadsden flag which has been widely used as a banner of the Tea Party.

So...the President of the United States wants to ban the flag that represents an opposing party. Nice.

Why would he want to ban the Gadsden flag? The only thing he should dislike about it, is that it's a party that is not his party. This man really does think he is a king. I hope our nation can survive without completely imploding before he gets the hell out of the White House.

2. The President spoke at the NAACP a week from this Tuesday.

Here's a link to his remarks:

https://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2015/07/14/remarks-president-naacp-conference

Could you point out the place where he says to ban the Gadsden flag? Thanks.

3. Well, that seems to be misleading at best

At best, assuming the article is accurate, he called for not flying these flags on public property. Which is not the same thing as calling for a ban on the flag.

Which makes sense to me. Flying our national flag on government property makes sense. Flying state flags on state owned property makes sense. Not sure why we would be flying any other flags on public property.

However, the article conveniently omits any actual quotes of Obama saying anything about the flag. Given how far it diverges from the topic, I have to wonder if that's because, as is so often the case, its all misdirection and false assertion. I guess we will have to wait for a credible source with actual quotes to know.

7. Um...

The article, which says it was published "four hours ago," states Obama was "Speaking at an NAACP dinner this evening," yet he was doing no such thing (he's en route to Germany). He spoke at an NCAA function about a week ago...yet not a single word anything like that in his speech (here's the transcript).

I smells me some bullshit...

http://washingtonweeklynews.com/what-they-wont-tell-you-about-jade-helm/

It's all a cover up!!!! That's why all that crazy stuff we predicted didn't happen. Trust us!

This flag story seems to be more of the same. Maybe not, but after this sites record of absolute howlers it will have to be mentioned somewhere with actual credibility first.

The president's speech is here:

And of course there is not even a mention of a flag. Isn't that funny?

14. This is a problem.

The problem is that there are actually people in this country that would believe that article. It's a perfect illustration of why there are so many people in this country that have no idea of what is actually going on....they find an article that reaffirms what they already think, and they believe it......even it's complete bullshit.

Obama's remarks to the NAACP (over a week ago) mentioned the Gadsden flag zero times. He said the word 'ban' zero times.

Its like they sit around coming up with insane stories and say "Yup, I bet we can get 25% of the fools to believe this."

And it appears to work.

of course you can imagine positive and negative consequences but there is an entire industry of conservative bogus news out there. Pretty easy for intelligent people to spot but we all aren't that intelligent

35. Very interesting...

The article states that Obama said: “justice is not only the absence of oppression, it’s the absence of racist, divisive symbols in our public discourse.

But the speech transcript on whitehouse.gov says that Obama said: "justice is not only the absence of oppression, it is the presence of opportunity.

Which is accurate? I would normally defer to the whitehouse.gov transcript, however, then I saw this:

The official White House transcript of the speech significantly amends the following passage;

“One of the nice things about being home is actually that it’s a little bit like a time capsule. Because Michelle and I and the kids, we left so quickly that there’s still junk on my desk, including some unpaid bills (laughter) – I think eventually they got paid — but they’re sort of stacked up. And messages, newspapers and all kinds of stuff.”

The version that appeared in the official transcript excised the part relating to unpaid bills to read, “there’s still junk on my desk, including some — newspapers and all kinds of stuff.”

The White House later claimed that the words did not appear in the transcript because the stenographer did not hear the omitted phrase. The transcript was subsequently amended with the word “inaudible” in place of the missing phrase.

As veteran White House reporter Keith Koffler notes, “Somehow, it wasn’t inaudible to the White House pool reporters, who picked up on the discrepancy between what was said and what was in the transcript.

37. When are you going to retract your thread?


You posted a story about the President saying something he never said. Your story has been thoroughly debunked.

Do the responsible thing and retract it.


Or do you rely on lies to further your agenda?
