There’s flags and then there’s flags

Michelle Obama: First Time proud of USA

Michelle Obama no hand on heart

All this for a damn flag

This week, while enjoying yet another mega-vacay courtesy of AMERICAN taxpayers, our despicable excuse for a First Lady took the opportunity to wave RED flags in Communist China. 

2014_03 Michelle Obama in China - waving flags

For the record: I couldn’t find any information about this photo. For all I know, she was waving starting flags at some race or other. What the fabric looks like, though, is the red scarves worn by the Young Pioneers of China whose motto is “Be prepared, to struggle for the cause of Communism!”

Oath: “I am a member of the Young Pioneers of China. Under the Flag of the Young Pioneers I promise that: I love the Communist Party of China, the motherland, and the people; I will study well and keep myself fit [lit. exercise well], and to prepare for: contributing my effort to the cause of communism.”

    Great montage!


  2. “So when did you ever see a national flag tied off at a point? Other photos of the event make it clear that this is not a flag at all. It’s part of a dance with streamers.”
