    OK, I know the answer but the question keeps popping up.

    Does he think we are stupid?

  • it does beg the question why does everything connected to zero have to be reminiscent of the islamic crescent?

    including the new missle command logo, remember that one a couple months ago?

  • ebayer


    Not only that question keeps popping up,but also this crescent graphic keeps popping up.

    Little by little everything changes.

    Yes he does.

  • Male Silverback

    This isn’t the first Obama oriented logo that has had a crescent moon applied to it. Remember the missile defense logo? It was a cresent to.

  • Just another reminder like the new Missile defense Logo

    There always seems to be some additional star like object in these images.

    Shame on us for thinking this might be a muslim crescent. Must simply be one of those strange co-incidences that happen in life.

    Hmmm. I see it as an orbiting electron, with the words taking the place of the nucleus.

    And he referred to having been to most of the 57 states in his campaign-

    I thought of the atom angle but that assumes I’m too stupid to notice that every symbol has the opening in the exact same spot as the Islamic cresent.

    “Oh please. It’s a stylized hydrogen atom. Commenter “Less” above is right.”

    Just like the “Hakenkreuz”, the swastika, used by the Nazis, was a really just stylized cross, which they used to show how close they were to Christianity, right?

    Yes, maybe it’s really just a stylized atom. But “in dubio pro reo” doesn’t really work anymore on Obama.

    I mean, remember what he said some time ago? That, in case of war, he’d be on the mohammedan side?

    On the good side, only two more years with him.

    He is a Muslim, and he is a Kenyan born, Indonesian citizen. Look at this. The military has a duty to disobey unlawful orders from an unlawful President. A true American President would have released his birth certificate by now, he wouldn’t allow this to happen.

    Instead of standing with their American soldier, they side with the enemy Barack Hussein Obama. Congress, Military, Supreme Court. They all side with the enemy. This soldier is the only one doing the right thing. I hope he goes down in history as the one who stood up, and saved this country from this demon Obama.

    “Hmmm. I see it as an orbiting electron, with the words taking the place of the nucleus.”
    I do, too, but graphic designers know what symbolism is, and it seems they would be going out of their way NOT to have it resemble anything else….unless done purposefully. My guess is that they designed it to be interpreted either way.

    Atoms and electrons are usually depicted as moving in circles, not crescents.

  • EC

    @Viedels and the others who say this is a hydrogen atom –

    Hydrogen atoms are generally symbolized by a nucleus and one valence electron circling. You’re right, in that the Nuclear Summit logo DOES look a bit like this, and I’m sure that was intentional. However, do you notice that the track is NOT a circle, but rather approximately 5/6 of one? Did you notice that the ends of the “valence track” are tapered, almost as if one smaller circle has been laid onto one larger circle, making a cutout? There is a name for that shape. It is called a crescent, and I’m equally sure that THAT is intentional as well. The question is WHY?

    Really people? This is a hydrogen atom, and the Missile Defense logo was in use before the 2008 elections.
    “”It isn’t a new logo to replace the official logo. It’s a logo developed for recruiting materials and for our public Web site. Also, it was used prior to the 2008 election”

    Okay. Let’s do that:

    “The Middle East is obviously an issue that has plagued the region for centuries.”

    “One such translator was an American of Haitian descent, representative of the extraordinary work that our men and women in uniform do all around the world — Navy Corpse-Man Christian Brossard.”

    “Let me be absolutely clear. Israel is a strong friend of Israel’s. It will be a strong friend of Israel’s under a McCain… administration. It will be a strong friend of Israel’s under an Obama administration. So that policy is not going to change.”

    “On this Memorial Day, as our nation honors its unbroken line of fallen heroes — and I see many of them in the audience here today — our sense of patriotism is particularly strong.”

    “In case you missed it, this week, there was a tragedy in Kansas. Ten thousand people died — an entire town destroyed.”

  • Regardless of those who say it’s a hydrogen atom, I agree that it should be a complete circle. If nothing else, you need to ask some questions. This sort of thing should give you pause and THINK, America.

  • Strange. It looks like Jim got his post up before I got mine up (5:40 AM vs. 7:16 AM Pacific), but he cites Evil Conservative, who did not get his post up–using my graphic–until later (10:18 AM).

    My guess is that EC came across my graphic before I posted it. I use Photobucket, so I always publish my my graphics before my posts. EC must have been searching for the Nuclear Security Summit logo and come across my juxtaposition to the MAS and Iranian logos. Good on you EC. That’s fast!

    In answer the suggestion by some commentators that the nuclear logo is supposed to be a hydrogen atom: this is not how a hydrogen atom would be depicted. The arc getting fatter on one side would indicate that it is coming closer to the observer, which would indicate that the orbit is being observed somewhat edge-on, which would turn the orbit into an ellipse. By the same token, since the orbit is seen as circular, not elliptical, that means it is being observed from above (from one of the poles of the axis of rotation) which means the electron is not moving closer to and further from the observer, hence no crescent-like fattening of the arc would be observed.

    More generally, as I wrote about the Missile Defense Agency’s crescent logo when agency spokesman Rich Lehner referred to MDA’s interpretation of what their Islamic-shaped crescent is supposed to represent: “I could say that the Swastika represents a helicopter rotor in motion, making a great logo for our Apache squadrons, but no such interpretation can obviate the established meaning of the symbol shape. That circle-in-circle crescent has an established meaning too. It represents Islamic domination of the planet. For you to protest that this isn’t what it means to you is as ludicrous and irrelevant as me saying that I see the Swastika as a spinning propeller.”

    This is the position that the “it’s a hydrogen atom” people are taking: that there is nothing wrong with employing the peculiar and only graphic symbol of our terror war enemies so long as we put a different interpretation on it than they do.

  • Nice Post Alec !
    As to the comments by less #11 @ 10:00 & Steve from Brookline #15 @ 10:07

    The fact they both chose not to respond after they were criticized is good evidence theirs was a classic case of 2 trolls doing some drive by blogging.

    They thought they were going to be applying Alinsky’s Power tactic Rule # 3 but we’re much to informed on the right.

    3. “Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy. Look for ways to increase insecurity, anxiety and uncertainty. (This happens all the time. Watch how many organizations under attack are blind-sided by seemingly irrelevant arguments that they are then forced to address.)

    You know what else is weird? The symbol of the RNC uses upside down pentagrams, the mark of Satan! Eliphas Levi called it evil whenever the symbol appeared the other way up.

    “A reversed pentagram, with two points projecting upwards, is a symbol of evil and attracts sinister forces because it overturns the proper order of things and demonstrates the triumph of matter over spirit. It is the goat of lust attacking the heavens with its horns, a sign execrated by initiates.”

    So there you have it. GOP=Devil Worship

  • Gail F

    I think it’s an artistic depiction of a hydrogen atom. Graphic designers are not noted for their devotion to scientific accuracy. That said — you would think that someone at Team Obama would have asked designers not to make things that havw any resemblance to the Islamic crescent. But I don’t think they care. Just check out — the unbelievable propaganda on that site blows me away. They really think people love everything they do.

    and whose wife is on an advisory team for the National September 11 Memorial and Museum, come up with $4.85 million in cash? And where will he get the $150 million to build
    an Islamic mecca planned two blocks from Ground Zero?]

    and what of the 9/11 memorial??

    still a huge hole in the ground.. 🙁

Make sure you have enough typing monkeys to get to 31 as fast as possible. Then you’re safe from having to worry about anything at all.

    I wrote to the Missile Defense Agency at [email protected], protesting the logo and explaining why I think they should get rid of it. Here’s the reply I got:

    Thank you for your email to the Missile Defense Agency regarding the graphic design shown at the top of our website pages.

    This design was developed three years ago for use on a variety of recruiting materials at universities, job fairs and other recruiting venues. It has not replaced the official Missile Defense Agency heraldry prominently displayed on our website as well as on all Agency news releases, fact sheets and other information materials. It also has no connection to any political entity or campaign, and was developed well in advance of the 2008 election.

    Again, thank you for your email to the Missile Defense Agency.

    I was not satisfied at all with this response, i.e., why the hell did they need a new logo for “recruiting” purposes, while NOT retiring the old logo… which is still there, all right—but relegated to the very bottom of the web page, and at such a small size that you can’t even make out the details. Sheesh!

    I wrote them back–a reply to their reply–but have not heard back yet a second time.

    I urge all GPers to write to them at [email protected] and let’s just shower them with emails!!! We may not get anywhere, but dadgum it, they should at least hear from us and know that WE THE PEOPLE are NOT pleased! And who knows? Like with the Van Jones thing, maybe they’ll decide to give it up!

    Please tell all Christians celebrating Christmas and displaying a Christmas Tree in their home that they are partaking in a centuries old Pagan ritual.

    The swaztika? That symbol is over 3000 years old. Hitler demented its original positive connotations by simply using it for his conservative, bigotry and dictatorial propaganda. Much the same way conservatives used the confederate flag as a symbol of their racial hatred for blacks, Jews, etc.
