XXX,Actually, I appreciate posts like this. I use them to teach my children how certain people purposefully lieto get their way.In this post, all we see is what the author offers as a picture of two people saluting and one person not.The author's caption is biased presuming a flag but showing none in the pix. Then, he asks those whothink the same to repost. This is classic manipulation.Looking closer, at the bottom left of the pix, we see clearly that it is not a pix but a video. The video ispaused, and this is clearly evident by looking at the right of the scrub line. This makes it apparent thatthe person posting this pix deliberately lied. He did not say it was a paused segment of a video. Also, hegave no source for independent investigation; but, when one is dishonest, the intent is to cover theirtracks.When one intends to inflame another, they count on intensity of deep-seated emotions which in thiscase is hatred of President Obama. They continue by assigning undesirable traits to the object of theirhatred. Here the original
his sense of doubt and disloyalty onto the president. The
subsequent author projects
his lack of respect for country onto the president.Is there a flag? Is the Pledge of Allegiance being said? Exactly what is going on? The
does not say.The video does; but, the author does not present this evidence.All of this false emotion is invoked by a false picture from a frozen video frame.My question is
who allows themselves to be so easily deceived
What type of person promotesdishonesty
Can America trust such a person
What happens to a nation who places their trust suchpeople
?Truthfully, the video is easy to find. It shows the singing of the National Anthem. Etiquette does notrequire the saluting of a song if the flag is not present. However, it does suggest respect. Respect isshown. I have posted a link to the video.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hU9iCANi02o.
Here is a link to
that goes into a little more depth with an explanation from PresidentObama about the matter. It shows the date as September 2007.http://www.snopes.com/politics/obama/anthem.asp. This site also shows President Obama leading the pledge with his hand over his heart.
Does this makehim acceptable to conservatives now?
