'The People of this Country are Suffering'

George Joyce
Organizing for America – the organization that gift wraps and sells Barack Obama to the American public – is sponsoring a “Health Video Reform Challenge” in order to stimulate creative filmmakers into packaging Obama’s health care plan for national consumption.

Twenty finalists in the video challenge were chosen by a “Panel of Experts” that include Obama campaign manager David Plouffe and Democrat Congressman Patrick Murphy of Pennsylvania, an Iraq War veteran.

Of the finalists, the video entitled “Saber Speaks” is blatantly disrespectful and exceedingly disturbing.  The video displays a graffiti artist having his way with the painted image of the American flag on a concrete wall.  Random messages such as ‘Epilepsy” “Pre-existing conditions” “Homeless” and “The People of this Country are Suffering” are sprayed haphazardly across Old Glory until the stars and stripes are completely snuffed out.

After watching the video my thoughts returned to the image of Bill Ayers posing for Chicago Magazine while standing on the American flag back in 2001.  Nothing surprised me about the Ayers photo, but what seems rather odd is how the “Saber Speaks” video made it past Iraq War veteran and panelist Patrick Murphy.
 
The winning video will air on national television . . .
