Recipe for Anti-Patriotism: All American Upside Down Fruitcake May 8, 2009

Upside down flag

A member of the Obama bunch strikes again. This time it’s Father Pfleger in a news story that I have noticed is receiving little if any coverage.  For the last several years, youth violence has been on the rise in Chicago at an alarming rate. Yes, Obama’s Chicago is in peril. Funny how the city where Obama hails from has the worst youth violence rate in America. I guess the youth did not get the memo about “change and hope”.  We are all outraged over this, however Father Pfleger in usual Obama whacko anti-American friend fashion has resorted to rather unorthodox means of gaining attention.

CHICAGO, Illinois (CNN) The Rev. Michael Pfleger has ordered the American flag at St. Sabina Church hung upside-down — a historic sign of distress — to symbolize the growing death toll among the city’s youngsters.

So far this school year, 36 children and teens have been murdered — more than one a week — and Pfleger is among a chorus of weary Chicagoans who say the slayings aren’t getting the attention they deserve.

Had 36 kids died of swine flu this year, “there would be this great influx of resources that say, ‘Let’s stop this, lets deal with this,’ ” Pfleger said.

Instead, because violence is driving the epidemic, “We’re hiding it. We’re ignoring it. We’re denying the problems,” he said.

Pfleger is not the first Chicagoan to express the sentiment. In 2007, after the city recorded 31 murdered children during the school year, Arne Duncan, then-CEO of public schools, expressed similar disappointment.

Duncan, who now serves as President Obama’s secretary of education, said “all hell would break loose” if these killings took place in one of the metro area’s upscale enclaves.

“If that happened to one of Chicago’s wealthiest suburbs — and God forbid it ever did — if it was a child being shot dead every two weeks in Hinsdale or Winnetka or Barrington, do you think the status quo would remain? There’s no way it would,” he said.

Yet the problem has only worsened since Duncan publicly shared his observation. With about a month left in the school year, Chicago’s public schools have topped the number of students slain in the 2007-2008 and 2006-2007 school years — 27 and 31, respectively.

Obama Bunch

You may remember Father Pfleger as one of Obama’s hometown Chicago moonbat supporters from the presidential campaign. Let’s say that he made some colorful remarks regarding Hillary Clinton.

Yes, that Rev. Pfleger. Why am I not surprised that this reverse racist would be stupid enough to think that he is solving the problem of youth violence by hanging the American flag upside down? Exactly what does he think is this is going to solve? He calls it a “distress signal”. I call it a disgrace. Thankfully someone – a patriot- agreed with me and tore it down.

Pfleger: I’ll keep flying U.S. flag upside down
May 7, 2009


The Rev. Michael Pfleger says someone tore down an American flag he was flying upside down outside his church to protest violence.

But the activist priest quickly replaced it this afternoon — and vowed to keep doing so if people continue taking down the flags.

“There’s more attention being given to the flag than to children dying,” Pfleger said.  “What do we care about children dying?”

Pfleger said he decided to fly the flag upside down outside St. Sabina Church on the South Side as a “distress signal” to raise awareness of how many children are being killed by gun violence.

Pfleger referred to Wednesday’s fatal shooting of 16-year-old Ramone Morris on the West Side and the slaying of 15-year-old Alex Arellano, who was found beaten, shot and burned over the weekend.

Some people have complained to him that it’s inappropriate to use the flag as an act of protest.

The U.S. Flag Code, passed by Congress, states the flag should not be flown upside down “except as a signal of dire distress in instances of extreme danger to life or property.”

Pfleger said the recent killings of children demand such a signal of distress.

“Life is at risk and particularly our children,” Pfleger said.  “If it’s a distress signal, we’re feeling it in Chicago.”

He said he plans to keep the flag flying upside down until “people are going to acknowledge and do something about” the violence.

I pray that someone tears it down again. Let’s call upon President Obama to tell his anti-American friend to stop this unpatriotic nonsense.

Obama has no problem criticizing those attending the tea parties but he is silent on this issue.

Let me guess Mr. President, you don’t know the guy right? Arne Duncan is another joke altogether. Why did Obama believe Duncan should serve as Secretary of Education when the Chicago public school system he worked for had gone to shit. The two played one on one together, so that was a good enough reason to hire Duncan. Now Duncan wants to take away vouchers from children who attend private schools. Good call Duncan.

We indeed need a distress signal- for the White House. Obama and his cuckoos  are coming home to roost.

    Wow, so much to say on this one. I’ll start here:

    I thought Obama organized this community. Good job Barack!

    “So far this school year, 36 children and teens have been murdered — more than one a week — and Pfleger is among a chorus of weary Chicagoans who say the slayings aren’t getting the attention they deserve.”

    And Pfleger is doing what exactly to stop the violence in the community where he is supposed to be a leader?

    “Duncan, who now serves as President Obama’s secretary of education,”

    And Duncan is doing what exactly to stop the violence now that he is the Federal Secretary of Education?

    ““If that happened to one of Chicago’s wealthiest suburbs — and God forbid it ever did — if it was a child being shot dead every two weeks in Hinsdale or Winnetka or Barrington, do you think the status quo would remain? There’s no way it would,” he said.”

    OK, here I agree with Duncan. If something like this was going on in a wealthier suburb the people, especially the parents, would do something about it themselves instead of calling for ‘someone’ to do something.

      The thing is B&B, the Chicago southside has wealthy areaa including where Obama lived. The violence is happening there as well. Hinsdale, Barrington are not Chicago and they are nowhere near Chicago. There are also middle class people who live there as well. He is full of it.

      • Chicago is like NYC in that sense. Yes, some areas are worse than others, but the violence is everywhere, and sadly, in some ways it’s an accepted part of life in the city. Everyone sits around citing alarming statistics, waiting for someone else to do something when they hear screams outside their buildings. And as b&b alludes, that’s just what Pfleger is doing: quoting studies and desecrating flags while kids kill each other.

        You know, people make fun of those guys who dress up in spandex and call themselves “real life superheroes,” but at least they can say they’re doing something to address the bloodshed in their communities.

    Fly the flag upside down? Huh, that’s funny. There is a man down the street from me who flew his flag upside down for a “nation in distress” at the election of Obama. He was considered a right-wing nut and a racist. BUT…if some idiot on the Left flys it that way…it is to address innercity violence? Awesome how that works. Maybe I will fly mine upside down and when they call me names I will tell them I am raising awareness to innercity violence. Think it’ll work? Nah, me neither…I am not a democrat.

    pfleger is an absolute nut!! He does have a point that things are out of control but that all comes down from the top…Corruption, crime and democratic machine are the way of life in Chicago!! There’s no good reason that the flag should be flown upside down.

    I am a former soldier and I’ve always beleived that the american flag shouild represent our country that I served and would have died for. With all the injustices being allowed and nothing being done about it ,the fact that someone hanging an american flag upside down to draw attention to the senseless tragedy of 36 innocent children and teens being murdered may seem unpatriotic but its known as a distress signal and in light of the circumstances I feel that if it helps to make people aware of what is goin in Chicago and other urban cities ,then the powers that be should concentrate on stopping the brutal violence befalling our country and consuming our youth. We need to be more sympathetic to the urban plight and not turn a blind eye and swept it under the rug until election time!! Poor and underprivieged americans have rights and feelings and we as a country need to address the needs of our fellow man in our own country before we help others abroad or fatten our own wallets by profiting from our poor neighbors and fellow citizens….

    • afrocity Says:

      Robert this can be done without showing disrespect to our troops or the American flag. I was raised in inner city Chicago. I am by no means marginalizing the youth violence that is happening there.

    Mein Gott! What’s going on in this country? It’s OK for the squareheads in Wisconsin (or was it Minnesota?) to elect an idiot, as there’s no one but Swedes and Krauts in Minnesota (or was it Wisconsin?), but to put, not a clown. but a dangerous fanatic, in the White House, is a step beyond reality, Twilight Zone stuff. God preserve us for 3 1/2 more years, with the hope we can get back to normal — provided we still have a country after Orack Banana, Nancy “Draculina” Pelosi and Hillary “Whatisit?” Clinton get thru with it.
