Lincoln Center flag flown in tatters… Does anyone care?

Back in February 2011, Glenn posted a picture on this very website of the flag that flies outside of Lincoln Center in New York City. At the time, Glenn quipped that he had “seen the original Star‑Spangled Banner” and that flag “is in better condition” than the one flying high over Manhattan. Fast forward three years, and Glenn found himself passing Lincoln Center again this morning, and he couldn’t help but notice the condition of the flag flying outside of it hasn’t changed one bit:


Glenn doesn’t think it is right to let an American flag fly frayed. But does anyone else care?

    It’s a symbol not a fuckin’ newborn child.

      Not that it would mean much more to you if it was…

        I have a UN flag in worse shape than that one. We use it to wipe our dogs butts.

      If it were a rainbow flag in tatters, Obama would be “out” raged.

      It’s Total Fricken’ Idiots Like You That Are Deteriating America!!! Do us all a favor and move out of the country you seem to dislike so much and let us concerned citizens fix it before you lead us into slavery…

    A DFW Nissan dealer has a HUGE flag that they fly, it’s easily seen from the freeway (635 in Mesquite). Well last year at some point they had a problem with the motor that raised/lowered that flag. So their answer was to bunch the flag up on the ground and tie it to the pole with a piece of greasy old wire. I called them twice to find out that they were doing and then I showed up in their showroom to speak to a manager. He explained the motor issue and assured me that it would be fixed. When I tried to explain the proper treatment of the flag he just kind of glazed over on me. That flag was in that condition for another two days, but strangely they had it fixed in time for the 4th of July sale!

    Another little story. My son is in Cub Scouts and we were practicing raising, lowering and folding flags. He and some of the boys were screwing around, not really paying attention and almost dropped the flags a couple of times. I spoke to my son about the importance of treating the flag with reverence, etc. It just wasn’t clicking. So I made him watch the first 30 minutes of Saving Private Ryan. The lesson stuck.

    Has anyone ever heard of the song about “on second thought I do like to brag cause we’re mighty proud of that ragged old flag”. By Johnny Cash? Now this may not have been the intent but perhaps we should actually look at the flag and see if it were made in China. That would be more embarrassing.

      New York is an asshole that’s just so full of s#%t and it’s flatulence is making the rest of the country stink.

        I would not say that, but I would say that if God wanted to give the world an enema, NYC would be an excellent place to insert the hose.

    Perhaps Lincoln’s Ghost is back shredding the flag much like he did while he was president.

    Get a grip.

    I care, Glenn. Why not ask some of your crew to find out who the actual person responsible for it is and ask them? Not his boss, but the actual guy that goes out and runs it up the pole.

    Why not exhume Ted Kennedy’s rotting corpse, and fly it over the f-ing Lincoln Center instead?

      I would rather see it replaced with a few fresh ones. Pelosi and the dirty jewess Feinstein would be a fine start.

    Does a tattered flag not represent America in some ways? Like the flag, it’s not without its flaws but damn it if it doesn’t fly everyday anyway. I’m not saying it shouldn’t be replaced with a new one, and I’m not an American so I fully expect the reactionaries on both sides of the political spectrum to tell me where to go, but to me, it’s kind of poetic and isn’t something to be disgusted by.

    • The Saxons are coming

      It is, and it needs to be burned. Wrapped around Obama’s ass, on fire, would be fine with me.

    • Difcan’s Avatar

      It would be more accurate to fly the flag upside down.

  • The Saxons are coming

    I heard Glenn say he was about to burn the American flag. Well ya found your flag, make it an issue and burn that exact flag in the photograph.

    • Lori

      In what context was he saying it and where?

      • The Saxons are coming

        He was talking about the Justina case, Glenn was fit to be tied and rightfully so, so was I. Maybe earlier this week or late last week on his radio show. It is what the flag stands for now, how its been usurped by the vermin and scum that calls D.C. its home. Glenn is not visceral enough. Burning the flag is THE proper way to get rid of a soiled flag. So there you go Mr.Beck. Beck found a flag worthy of burning is all I’m saying. It has been sullied by allowing it to fly in taters. Watch the clip yourself.

        If Mr. beck would consider going down a few rabbit holes (he probably won’t). I would suggest going down the Talmud hole, It is the deepest. The last 3,000 years anyway.

        D.C. is full of satanic symbols, monuments, and images. Torch it all down. All of it. The flag itself has become an abomination.

        To Mr Beck,

        Go for it Glenn , please. Torch the flag. Test your metal sir, test your resolve.

        ” But ye shall destroy their altars, break their images, and cut down their groves: For thou shalt worship no other god: for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God: Lest thou make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land, and they go a whoring after their gods, and do sacrifice unto their gods, and one call thee, and thou eat of his sacrifice; And thou take of their daughters unto thy sons, and their daughters go a whoring after their gods, and make thy sons go a whoring after their gods.”

        Another note, that youtube clip, the caption photo of Beck giving the 666 sign, I don’t know if Beck is making that knowingly or subliminally. Maybe, he has been hanging around Penn Gillette too long. Gillette the heathen, loves to use that hand gesture. But it makes me wonder. That is a satanic hand gesture of the highest order.

    Since collectivist illusions are generally conjured up to exploit our emotions and attempt to justify plunder’s injustice, we have no reason to accept them as moral, legitimate, or just.

  • Major Kalhoun

    They should leave it that way as it reflects this current Marxist administration’s view of America in decline (by their design).
