Special delivery! Democrats procure flags for convention stage after embarrassing oversight leaves Old Glory missing from Monday night's festivities


After slogging through a boisterous convention on the floor, Democrats were forced to make a last-minute adjustment to the on-stage decor, after a report pointed out there were no American flags present.

Democrats unveiled a sleek stage to the nation Monday, after the convention had been in the works for months.

As speaker after speaker took the stage, screens behind them produced stunning scenery of the country and cool grey backgrounds.

But there wasn't a single American flag onstage – notwithstanding the fact that most of the speakers were lawmakers, who each have Capitol offices festooned with flags and other patriotic ware.

Republican Convention, real flags galore.

Demo Convention, faux flags, via digital coloring.....pathetic!

To be fair, there were no flags left after the Republicans procured every last American flag in existence. :)

The flags were never missing, except to the credulous, who believed the fake meme.

This is clearly the biggest issue of this campaign season and thank God someone had the moral courage to bring it to light.

I figured it would be you to bring up another stupid story that isn't true.

No American Flags Present at the Democratic National Convention : snopes.com

Do a bit of research before you start stupid threads. Is there any stupid bit of internet doggerel you won't believe?

Nope....those are Democrats, like Al Gore's father and Sen. Byrd from W.Va.

Whatever you have to tell yourself to maintain the fantasy, sport.
Thing is they're ultra-conservative, a fact you just can't get out from under.

History disagrees with your narrative. Why don't you google which party opposed freeing the slaves and civil rights. The KKK was founded by Democrats.

No, it doesn't. Racism is inherently conservative, and you're conflating modern era Dems with antebellum conservatives. The people who opposed freeing the slaves and civil rights back then are not the same as the Dems are now.

And the KKK? Te Ku Klux Klan was started by six ex-rebel soldiers, 151 years ago, around a campfire in Tennessee by 6 former soldiers. It had nothing to do with the Democratic party at that time, nor does it now.

Basic history, m'man.

Thanks for your concession and admission that you don't know history and you have difficulties comparing apples to apples.

Big of you.

I won't forget that.

Not big on reading comprehension are you? I said neither of those things. History proves you wrong, ..... Oh yea I know all those evil racists just switched parties. :lamo Seriously?

Baloney, you believe every piece of crap thing you read on the internet that you agree with, then you post it, and you make a fool out of yourself for doing it.

Thanks for proving my point and making my case.

History hasnt' proven me wrong, and it's clearly upsetting you.

Sorry to have embarrassed you so.
