    DENVER – The "credentials" issued by the Democratic National Convention for fans of Sen. Barack Obama to attend his nomination-acceptance speech next week at Denver's football stadium are raising questions because they apparently have the U.S. flag flying upside down – an international signal of distress.

    KUSA-TV in Denver reported its viewers have raised the issue, and online, a participant in a Gateway Pundit forum said, "That's an upside-down flag. It may not be intentional, but there it is."

    The television station said viewers see the blue field and stars in the lower left corner, even though published flag etiquette states the stars should be displayed – always – in the upper left corner.

    A picture of the creds is in the story.

    Well, they got it right, electing Obama would be a sign of distress for the country. 'I hate the country - make me President" :confused:

    I don't think it's a printing error, since his clothing is where the stars are. I think they designed it that way, but probably didn't realize it'd be upside down to some people.

    Wow, I am as outraged as when Bush played with the flag during the Olympics. I also noticed in the article, that they continued to mention Obama not having his hand on his heart during the 'National Anthem'.

    No-one in this thread has made a big deal about it. I hate Obama with a passion (not because of his race) but it's not because of this.

    Why was it posted. The link clearly has an agenda against Obama.
    BF, don't need to include the race thing, it will not sway someones opinion if they think your racist, so why even bother.

    I feel like I have to - every time I say I don't like him, someone says : "it's because he's black, you racist". So it's a standard disclaimer now :(

    Exactly, and nobody is quicker to pull the whiney racist sh!t than an "Obama A$s Kisser" and if you think that is bad imagine if Obama "loses" Jesus Christ American Citys all across America will be burning it will be "Rodney King" all over again only far worse.

    If the Messiah Lord Prince Almighty Barack Hussein Obama becomes the next president watch all the free passes he will get because of "you know what".

    I read quite a few of the posts, and I've never seen anyone do that. I think you're highly conscious of Obama's race, but I could be wrong; maybe someone really did accuse of you being racist simply because you don't like Obama.

    Obama, himself, has created this. With that "he doesn't look like the other Presidents . . . he's black" crap, any criticism now seems like it goes through the prism of his race. This isn't the only reason I hate him - but it is one reason.

    I have seen posters accuse him of being racist for his opinions.

    I shouldn't have said every post but there are a variety of people here - like PF1996 and PressCoverage - where it's absolutely true.

    Hate is a strong word BF. There's no reason to hate someone who's intentions aren't malicious.

    People who expend a lot of energy and continually say they are not racist, usually have racist tendencies.. if it is not an issue you kinda keep your piehole shut.

    Funny how this thread about Obama once again disrespecting the US flag, has turned into who is or is not a racist.

    Why is the falg upsidedown? The DNC must have someone who knows about this stuff, or is it on purpose?
