Stupid Quote of the Day: Chuck Baldwin and OBAMA THE COMMIE (redux)

| »

From the idiotic wingnut and former presidential candidate for the horrendously-named “Constitution Party”, Chuck Baldwin, who rages against the commie horror that was allowing people to fly the Chinese flag in a public park next to the White House last weekend in honor of the 60th anniversary of the People’s Republic of China:

Lest anyone doubt the communist leanings of President Barack Obama, look no further than to his decision to hoist the Red Chinese flag (for the first time in history) over the South Lawn of the White House in Washington, D.C., on Sunday, September 20.

Utter nonsense. First of all, there is little that is more routine, even customary, than allowing other countries to hoist their national flags next to the American flag during White House events and such. But this wasn’t even the case here: the White House had nothing to do with this. The celebrators merely obtained a permit to use to public park adjacent to the White House, with no actual White House involvement.

And as for his claim of the White House displaying the Chinese flag “for the first time in history” … oy vey, the stupidity. (And mind you, that’s just one time found on Google.)
