SO, Col West defiled the flag by taking it underwater!
Our Lib/Progressive/Radical anarchists-
- wear the flag as iundershorts
-burn the flag
-William Ayers stands on it for a photo
Obama won't salute it IF he has it around him
TWO HALLMARKS TO LIBERALS: FANTASY AND HYPOCRISY--
Congressman Allen West, desecrating the American flag
There's nothing really bad to say about Rep. Allen West going diving off the coast of Deerfield Beach with a bunch of military veterans -- except for the fact that he violated U.S. federal law in the process, and provided pictorial of himself doing so.
During his diving session Sunday, Lt. Col. West was photographed holding an American flag underwater, on top of an artificial reef -- which would be a violation of the United States Code.
Let us flip to Title 4, Chapter 1, Section 8, Subsection B of the United States Code:
(b) The flag should never touch anything beneath it, such as the ground, the floor, water, or merchandise.
That's from Chapter 1 of the United States Code, also known as the United States Flag Code.
Judging from the existence of pictures of West holding a flag under water, that would seem to qualify as a violation of code.
The Flag Code constitutes federal law, although there is no penalty for breaking this law.
We'll let you off with a warning, West.
But let it be known that you're joining the ranks of at least one other politician by violating the code:
