    Offended or no?

    Photo of baby in American flag shrouded in controversy


    Is this photo considered offensive to you?

    Clearly, it violates US Flag Code, but does it bother you that it does?

    I don't see any disrespect in that whatsoever. If anything I see exactly the opposite.

    Offended? No. Consider it seriously inappropriate? Yes. Worth making a big deal over? Not really.

    I am very particular about how the flag is displayed and handled. But I see no issue with this.

    I'm sure that Obama was offended that some Americanism might rub off on the baby....

    Anyone offended by this beautiful picture needs to get a life.

    No.

    It's a flag

    She's actually showing love of nation, albiet against flag code so who cares?
    You should try to remember, ideas are conveyed by researching information, vetting sources, and confirming said information. Not by regurgitating talking points given to you by your "news" station.

    The flag code is a blatantly unconstitutional law which is why no one has ever been prosecuted by it.

    I would say that using an actual us flag and not like a us flag blanket is a bit disrespectful but it certainly their right to do it.
