Florida Veterans Demand Democrat Party Remove American Flag Altered With Obama’s Image

After a short stand off between a group of veterans and the head of the Lake County, FL Democrat Party, an American flag that had been altered to depict an image of Barack Obama in the space where the stars are normally located was taken down.

The Lake County Democratic Headquarters in Tavares has been flying two American flags outside their office. The first an American Flag and the second the altered flag.


A veterans group arrived late this afternoon with the media in tow and demanded that the second flag be taken down.  Don Van Beck, executive director of the Veterans Memorial at Fountain Park asked that the altered flag be removed, explaining that it was in violation of federal flag code. He offered a POW/MIA flag to fly in its place.

Nancy Hurlburt, the Democratic Party Chair for Lake County, said she would research the issue but didn’t take the Obama flag down immediately, prompting Van Beck to declare that they would take the flag down for her.

“No, you will not. This is private property,” Hurlbert responded.

After a short time spent ‘researching’, Hurlbert relented and took down the flag while the veterans looked on.  She did not accept the POW/MIA flag offered as a replacement.

I can’t believe these people put up this illegal flag to fly on their pole here in Tavares, Florida. As a veteran of the Korean War, I join with my fellow Vets. Let’s honor our POW/MIA’s who gave their lives for our freedom and not Obama, who wants to take our freedom, especially our right to worship and practice our religion, away from us! Shame on the Democratic Party!

  3. What’s the matter with the City of Tavares? How disgraceful and shameful to desecrate the American flag like that!!!!! I would be voting for a new mayoral candidate come November, if I was a resident of Tavares! What ever happened to patriotism and love of our country? We are not ruled by a king yet-even though there are a few Democrats that may think so.

    • This was done by the Democratic Headquarters, not the City of Tavares, although they should have been aware of this scandal and had them remove this offence. We actually have lots of patriotism here in our town. These people are just a few in number.
