The person who hung this desecrated flag off his balcony was upset that President Obama was being insulted. He wanted to make a statement. Where he is making his mistake is that this is not the way to make people sympathetic to his cause. It is especially offensive to most veterans. All he is doing is alienating people and convincing even more people that President Obama and his followers have little respect for the flag. Descecrating the flag is no small matter to anyone, but especially to people who risked their lives for their country.
