Obama Explains National Anthem Stance. Is this guy crazy or what!

On Sat, 22 Mar 2008 18:48:04 -0400, 'LT. Bill Ginn' USAF ret forwarded:

Hot on the heels of his explanation for why he no longer wears a flag pin, presidential candidate Senator Barack Obama was forced to explain why he doesn't follow protocol when the National Anthem is played.

According to the United States Code, Title 36, Chapter 10, Sec. 171...... During rendition of the national anthem when the flag is displayed, all present except those in uniform are expected to stand at attention facing the flag with the right hand over the heart.

'As I've said about the flag pin, I don't want to be perceived as taking sides,' Obama said. 'There are a lot of people in the world to whom the American flag is a symbol of oppression. And the anthem itself conveys a war like message. You know, the bombs bursting in air and all. It should be swapped for something less parochial and less bellicose. I like the song 'I'd Like to Teach the World to Sing.' If that were our anthem, then I might salute it.'

WHAAAAAAAT!!!!!!!!!! Yes, ladies and gentlemen, this could possibly be our next president. I, for one, am speechless .

Pass It On Before It's too Late. Let's Teach The World About This Idiot.

While the quote from the statute is correct, the citation is not. Its 36 USC 301(b)(1)(A). Kind of hard to be taken seriously when you can't source your nonsense correctly.

Of course, on Fox News, this is considred "close enough" and therefore "objectively correct".

Wow, I was just gonna point to the fact that this whole "statement" from Barak is bunk made up by a conservative writer, as previously stated on Snopes. I tip my hat to you, Anon, for your legal citation. Well played.
