Veteran Wraps Baby in American Flag, Photo Sparks Controversy

This morning while watching Fox and Friends on the Fox News Channel, I saw the picture of a U.S. Navy veteran cradling a baby in an American flag.  My first thought was – what an absolutely beautiful photo!  But then, a whole lot of controversy was being discussed when people on Face Book objected to the photo.

I was so glad that Elizabeth Hasselbeck interviewed the photographer, Vanessa Hicks, who is also a Navy veteran.

See the video HERE.

Good for Vanessa Hicks for not taking down the photo and for defending her actions on this issue! Her explanation in that video interview says it all!!!

I wonder…if the baby had instead been an aborted fetus, would the progressive leftist pro-death-to-babies-in-the-womb maniacs have stayed silent about the photo? Would they have accepted it as some sort of “artsy” and “free speech” issue? Or even worse, would they have cheered about it?

Think I’m being too “mean”  against the Planned Parenthood types? See Planned Parenthood supporter at an El Centro City Council meeting on March 4, 2015, Marcus Jay Shapiro was asked to leave the meeting for threatening a pro-life pastor. Shapiro yelled “Hail Satan!” as he was being escorted out by police.

Now THAT’S DISGUSTING!!!

Twitchy asks: Is there nothing people on social media won’t get outraged over?

I was wondering the same thing…

Would they be outraged about:

1. The Christian Persecution going on?

2. The Three Existential Threats Facing America?

3. Two Cops Shot in Ferguson Last Night?

4. Homosexual Oscars Emcee Neil Patrick Harris Seen Abusing His 4-yr.old Twins?

5. Planned Parenthood supporter yells “hail satan” at California city council meeting?

6. Obama’s ATF & DOJ: Corruption in Action?

7. Judge Andrew Napolitano Hillary Clinton guilty of felony and misdemeanor, Concealing government documents, Failing to secure classified secrets in a government approved facility, Obama administration indictment?

8. Dad of SEAL Killed in Benghazi Blasts Hillary Over Records Exposed By Judicial Watch?

9. Prosecutors pursue indictment of Chicago imam accused of sex assaults on employees, students?

I could go on and on listing hundreds of examples here!  If you ask me, the terribly misplaced “outrage” over this photo is totally and unconscionably ridiculous!

Hat tips to all links.

What does it take to begin a relationship with God? Devote yourself to unselfish religious deeds? Become a better person so that God will accept you?

You may be surprised that none of those things will work. But God has made it very clear in the Bible how we can know Him.

The following principles will explain how you can personally begin a relationship with God, right now, through Jesus Christ…

    I wonder: if it had been a grown man using the flag as a hammock, would the regressive right have cheered it? There may be something about this in the US Code covering use and display of the flag, but I’m sure a Navy photographer would know about that (in fact, they’re expected to).
    What if the baby had been other than white? Would they have accepted it as some sort of “artsy” and “free speech” issue, or would it have been denounced as some pandering to “diversity”?

    I saw it on Facebook too, but I thought you’d dropped that site! You haven’t spoken well of it lately.
    I like the photo myself, but I’ll bet NetanYahoo! is looking at it and wishing he’d thought of it first—with the baby wrapped in an Israeli flag, of course. So much better than a picture of a cartoon bomb.

    Millions more black babies have been aborted since Roe vs. Wade. Looks like Margaret Sanger got her wish.

    Speaking of Netanyahu…I guess you are proud of the fact that 0bama sent his Obots over to Israel to undermine the election there.

    Speaking of showing disrespect to the flag…

    But my question remains: Would the regressives have accepted it as some sort of “artsy” and “free speech” issue, or would it have been denounced as pandering to “diversity”?

    Israel already has millions of partisans over here. But it really wasn’t necessary for Obama send anyone over there. Israelis can read papers and the internet as well as anyone, and right about now the people themselves are making up their own minds. We’ll see what happens.

    Speaking of showing disrespect to the flag…
    That’s just as wrong as wrapping a baby in it, and for exactly the same reason. But one makes people go “dawww…” while the other sparks outrage.
    To quote the first response in your link:

    @search4swag Ruh roh …guess what will be plastered all over a certain news channel for …oh the next week .

      Oh OK…showing “disrespect for the flag”…like this??

      Zombietime: Anti-war rally 3/20/2010 [Note: you may need to scroll down to the bottom to view the flags that were desecrated by LEFTIST LUNATICS!] Next, scroll up a bit and you will see:

      “World Can’t Wait (an offshoot of the Revolutionary Communist Party)…” with a pic and effigy of 0bama that reads, “I want you to kill and die in Iraq and Afghanistan” sign. Looks like this group turned against their former hero? More photos disparaging “O” at that link, as well as some making him look like Hitler.

      [Warning to readers: Some offensive photos of nudity and bad language in the dozens of pics at that link.]

        Oh, okay. So you know how to find cases where people are disrespecting the flag in some other way. “It’s all right to desecrate the flag if the intention was to glorify it” is what you’re saying, is that right?
        Of the US flags I saw in those photos, the only legal ones were in their proper place: flying from flagpoles. All the others (by which I suppose you mean the ones upside-down on the ground with writing on them) weren’t legal flags anymore. At least one of them wasn’t a 50-star flag, and so is obsolete. Of course there’s only one thing to do with a worn-out or obsolete flag: burn it. Which happens to be legal, despite a frenzy of anti-flag burning amendments back in the late ’80s.
        What’s got you so upset about those pictures? One, as you pointed out, equated Obama with Hitler, so I’d have thought you’d be ecstatic about that! It’s exactly the sort of thing you’ve been claiming for most of the past ten years.

        Again: if it’s wrong to use the US flag as a doormat, it’s equally wrong to use it as a baby hammock. Your trying to negate one offense with another merely proves my point.
