    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?


    (if this has already been mentioned somewhere else on the board, you can merge the topics, but I couldn't find it)

    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.

    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.
