Video: Michelle Obama: 'All This JUST FOR A FLAG'
From the first moments following the attacks of September 11, the American flag became a symbol of resolve and unity.
In the days that followed, our glorious flag appeared everywhere. It said that we were one nation under God and that we would never forget what happened -- that we would stand up to evil and triumph.
The flag and those continuing sentiments are synonymous. And Old Glory remains perhaps the premier symbol of that day and the rallying point for all those who love America and refuse to see it harmed in any way. So much so, that one would be well-advised not to get between Americans and their flag -- not then, not now, not ever.
So why would anybody appear to cast aspersions on our love for our flag as the embodiment of the nation itself?
Yet, that's what First Lady Michelle Obama seems to have done.
Look at the above video. It shows Michelle Obama apparently dissing the flag at a ceremony on September 11 at the World Trade Center site in lower Manhattan. As police and firefighters fold the flag to the sound of marching bagpipers, a skeptical looking Michelle leans to her husband and appears to say, “all this just for a flag.” She then purses her lips and shakes her head slightly as Mr. Obama nods.
This is the First Lady of the United States of America?
