The Florida Democrat Party is flying the Obama national flag at its headquarters.
Tempers are flaring over a version of the American flag flying in Lake County. A veterans group says the flag is an outrage.
The flag, which features a picture of President Obama, was taken down Tuesday afternoon.
Korean war veteran Don Van Beck said his blood was boiling.
“I can’t describe how upset was because you just don’t do that to the American flag,” Van Beck said.
Van Beck found it flying outside Lake County Democratic headquarters under the stars and stripes. Marine Corps vet John Masterjohn was seeing red.
“Joseph Stalin, pictures of Mao, pictures of Adolph Hitler. The pomp, the ceremony — the flags like that,” Masterjohn said.
Nearly a dozen veterans went to the door and aimed to take it down.
Of course, this surprises no one.
