#Boycott PacSun … Retailer PacSun Disrespects America and Those Who Fought and Died to Keep USA Free … Feels the Wrath of Customers After Stores Shill Upside Down American Flag T-Shirt on Memorial Day Weekend
IDIOTS … YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO MARKET THIS T-SHIRT AND AMERICA HAS THE SAME RIGHT TO NEVER, EVER SHOP AT PAC SUN EVER AGAIN.
Are you serious? The retailer PacSun thought it in their best interest to display a t-shirt on Memorial Day weekend of an up-side down American flag. Really? This is how you disrespect the memories of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice to keep America free? Just what kind of a bunch of dirt-bags are you? Although, you have every right to market and sell what ever you damn well please, as American men and women have spilled their blood to give you that right, “We the People” also have every to boycott your stores and never, ever, ever buy another thing from you.
And personally, I do not care whether you decide to pull the article of clothing from your stores because of the massive backlash you are about to receive, you have shown exactly what you are. YOU ARE A DISGRACE!!! Is it bad enough that you would disgrace the American flag, but you do so on Memorial Day.

Retailer PacSun is feeling the wrath of customers and military veterans after a photo of a T-shirt on display in one of its stores on Memorial Day weekend went viral.
The shirt features an upside-down American flag, a symbol that U.S. Flag Code makes clear is only to be used “in instances of extreme danger to life or property.” The shirt was reportedly first spotted at the store’s location at Tanger Outlets in Foley, Alabama.
“Screw you PACSUN,” one Facebook user wrote in reply to the company’s “buy one, get one 50% off” Memorial Day promotion post. He signed his comment, “veteran.”
“As a combat veteran I refuse to step into your store ever again,” another apparent veteran wrote.
“Not shopping here anymore,” a disgruntled Facebook user added, echoing the sentiment of hundreds of others.
A $24 T-shirt that was for sale online and at some PacSun stores could now cost the company thousands of dollars in lost sales.
The upside-down American flag upset one shopper in Alabama, who took to social media. Countless other shoppers chimed in tweeting “respect the flag #BoycottPacSun” and “there are repercussions to your free speech. I will never spend another penny there.”
On Monday afternoon, PacSun decided to stop selling the T-shirt and released the following statement to Eyewitness News: “As a retailer grounded in youth culture, PacSun values artistic and creative expression though the brands that we sell in our stores. Out of respect for those who have put their lives on the line for our country, we have decided to stop selling the licensed flag T-shirt and are removing it from our stores and website immediately. We thank the men and women in uniform for their extraordinary service.”

Memorial Day – 2015: A Debt We Can Never Repay … Remembering, Thanking & Honoring Our Military Heroes For Their Service & Sacrifice
REMEMBERING AND HONORING OUR MILITARY HEROES WHO GAVE ALL … BECAUSE FREEDOM IS NEVER FREE.
On this Memorial Day 2015, Scared Monkeys sends a special thank you to all of the military men, woman and their families who have sacrificed their lives to that We, the United States of America, remain the home of the free because of the brave. We thank from the bottom of our hearts those who we can no longer thank in person for their sacrifice to this great Country. Thank you and God Bless you, we shall never forget you your service and sacrifice.
Please take time today to remember what this day is truly about and the men and women that we have lost.
Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. (John 15:13 – King James Version)
America has lost so many lives to protect the freedoms and liberties that we hold to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. We have lost so many brave souls to not only protect our Freedoms, but the freedoms of others from tyranny. On this day we remember that Freedom is never Free and all those that gave all in their service and sacrifice to us.
The words of President Ronald Reagan, Arlington National Cemetery, May 31, 1982:
“The United States and the freedom for which it stands, the freedom for which they died, must endure and prosper. Their lives remind us that freedom is not bought cheaply. It has a cost; it imposes a burden. And just as they whom we commemorate were willing to sacrifice, so too must we — in a less final, less heroic way — be willing to give of ourselves.” [...]
“As we honor their memory today, let us pledge that their lives, their sacrifices, their valor shall be justified and remembered for as long as God gives life to this nation. And let us also pledge to do our utmost to carry out what must have been their wish: that no other generation of young men will every have to share their experiences and repeat their sacrifice.”
Remarks at Memorial Day Ceremonies Honoring an Unknown Serviceman of the Vietnam Conflict – 5/28/84
I can remember like it was yesterday, but in fact it was more than 25 years ago, when I stood in Arlington National Cemetery for the funeral of my Uncle and namesake. I can remember the sound of Taps and the 21 gun salute as tears flowed down my face as I laid to rest my hero. A man that gave so much for his country and for me. A man who was the toughest and most honorable, proud and yet humble man I have ever known. By all accounts he should have died in the Ardennes forest during WWII, but God had other plans. However, in many respects he did lose all as he came home forever changed. My uncle volunteered for WWII at age 18, although, when I review the records he was actually 17. He, like 5 of his brothers, took part in WWII. However, my Uncle Red saw the most action in Patton’s 3rd Army. Much of what he witnessed, he took to his grave as he lost so many Brothers in Arms. When he came home some 4 years later after having defeated the Nazis, his own mom, my grandmother, did not recognize him.
As always and on a personal note I say thank you and you are missed to my uncle Red who is buried in Arlington National Cemetery. My uncle served in Patton’s 3rd Army where he received the following medals. a silver star. bronze star and multiple purple hearts. So often he did not want to talk of what went on during his military server and his heroic efforts during WWII; however, true heroes are also humble. It was not until much later when I was in college and became a history major with a specialty in US military warfare and tactics did my uncle open up and provide me with the truth of what he experienced during his military days, some of that time spent in the Ardennes , better know as the Battle of the Bulge.
Thank you from your nephew and namesake, Red
A thank you to all that made the greatest sacrifice for us. May we honor your sacrifices and make you proud.
IDIOTS #THE DEMOCRATS: Democrat Party Think Spirit of Memorial Day is About King Barack Obama Eating Ice Cream
REALLY, THE DEMOCRAT PARTY THINKS THAT MEMORIAL DAY IS ABOUT BARACK OBAMA EASTING ICE CREAM?
A note to the Democrat Party, it isn’t always about Barack Obama, especially when it comes to the spirit and what Memorial Day is all about. For some reason the clowns at the Democrat Party posted in honor of Memorial Day a picture of Barack Obama easting ice cream. As reported at The Blaze, the photo of President Barack Obama downing an ice cream cone in St. Paul, Minnesota, last June was accompanied by the message, “Happy Memorial Day Weekend, everyone!” But for Liberals and Progressives eating ice cream best represents Memorial Day and is what the blood of so many fallen heroes who have sacrificed so much means.
Wow, America’s finest men and women have sacrificed their lives for this great nation so that the United States of America can be free and we have a political party that makes the memory of our brave soldiers about one man and eating a frigging ice cream cone. I can’t wait for the 4th of July of Obama eating hotdogs and Veterans Day with a pic of Obama throwing down a Slushie. What the hell is the matter with you people?
IDIOTS #THE DEMOCRATS!!!
Twitter – The Democrats @TheDemocrats
Others appear to be a miffed too like Jake Tapper of CNN, who stated on Twitter, “This is not what Memorial Day Weekend is About”. However, Jake Tapper on Twitter is properly honoring the Day by remembering America’s heroes. Many others on Twitter were not to happy.
Maybe the morons at the Democrat Party might want to take a field trip to Arlington National Cemetery and walk down every row and take a good look at the endless number of headstones of those that made the ultimate sacrifice for this country. Because Freedom is not free.

Barack Hussein Obama Takes Jab at Christians in Easter Prayer Breakfast as Obama Casts a Stone and Condemns ‘Less-than-loving Christians’
EVEN ON THE HOLY DAY OF EASTER, THIS CLOWN HAS TO MAKE A MOCKERY OF IT AND TAKE A SHOT AT CHRISTIANS …
Barack Hussein Obama can’t find it in himself to call out radical Islam as they slaughter, behead and burn to death innocent Christians … but he has no problem at bashing Christians. But what else should we expect from a Muslim raised individual who developed his religious teaching in Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s Black Liberation theology church?
“On Easter, I do reflect on the fact that as a Christian, I am supposed to love,” Mr. Obama said toward the end of his speech. “And I have to say that sometimes when I listen to less-than-loving expressions by Christians, I get concerned.”
“But that’s a topic for another day,” the president said, receiving laughter and applause.
What a sick, pathetic, little man. This is what a community agitator does and frankly America, you are to blame for being so clueless, so apathetic and so uninformed to elect this sorry excuse of a man.
MAY EVERYONE HAVE A HAPPY AND BLESSED EASTER …
He is risen, truly, He is risen. Easter represents the true meaning of hope eternal and the rebirth of our Lord Jesus Christ as he died and rose again. As you have your Easter egg hunts, open your Easter baskets and enjoy Easter dinner, please remember that the resurrection of our Lord provides us with eternal hope and rebirth. As stated in John 3:16: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” And with the crucifixion of Jesus, we are provided with his resurrection … Christ the Lord is Risen.

“As they entered the tomb, they saw a young man dressed in a white robe sitting on the right side, and they were alarmed. ”Don’t be alarmed,” he said. “You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid him. But go, tell his disciples and Peter, ‘He is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him, just as he told you.’ ”
Above All – Michael W Smith
Crucified, laid behind a stone
You lived to die rejected and alone
Like a rose trampled on the ground
You took the fall and thought of me
5 And entering the tomb, they saw a young man clothed in a long white robe sitting on the right side; and they were alarmed.
6 But he said to them, “Do not be alarmed. You seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He is risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid Him. 7 But go, tell His disciples—and Peter—that He is going before you into Galilee; there you will see Him, as He said to you.”
8 So they went out quickly[a] and fled from the tomb, for they trembled and were amazed. And they said nothing to anyone, for they were afraid.
Mary Magdalene Sees the Risen Lord
9 Now when He rose early on the first day of the week, He appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom He had cast seven demons. 10 She went and told those who had been with Him, as they mourned and wept. 11 And when they heard that He was alive and had been seen by her, they did not believe.
Jesus Appears to Two Disciples.
12 After that, He appeared in another form to two of them as they walked and went into the country. 13 And they went and told it to the rest, but they did not believe them either.
14 Later He appeared to the eleven as they sat at the table; and He rebuked their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they did not believe those who had seen Him after He had risen. 15 And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. 16 He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. 17 And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; 18 they[b] will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”
19 So then, after the Lord had spoken to them, He was received up into heaven, and sat down at the right hand of God. 20 And they went out and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them and confirming the word through the accompanying signs. Amen.
This has become one of my favorite Easter songs, enjoy … Amazing love, I know its true, It’s my joy to honor You.
Amazing Love – the Newsboys
I’m forgiven cause You were forsaken
I’m accepted, You were condemned
I am alive and well, Your spirit is within me
‘Cause You died and rose again
Amazing love, how can it be?
That You, my King would die for me?
Amazing love, I know its true
It’s my joy to honor You
In all I do, I honor You
Here I am to Worship – Michael W. Smith
I’ll never know how much it cost to see my sin upon that cross.
I’ll never know how much it cost to see my sin upon that cross.
And I’ll never know how much it cost to see my sin upon that cross.
No I’ll never know how much it cost to se my sin upon that cross.
Here I am to worship,
Here I am to bow down,
Here I am to say that you’re my God,
You’re altogether lovely,
Altogether wonderful to me.
So Here I am to worship,
Here I am to bow down,
Here I am to say that you’re my God,
MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry at Cornell University … I Hope Trayvon Martin ‘Whooped the Shit Out of George Zimmerman’
HOW DOES THIS INDIVIDUAL STILL HAVE A JOB WITH NBC?
On February 23, 2015 MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry spoke at Cornell University during an MLK Commemoration speech said the following, “I hope he whooped the shit out of George Zimmerman” during the fatal confrontation that led to Martin’s death in 2012. Seriously? I am not sure who we should be more embarrassed for, Cornell University or the memory of Martin Luther King Jr.
Let me understand this, you brought an individual to speak at an event to that honors the memory of MLK Jr, a man that preached non-violent change, and your guest speaker stated that she hoped Trayvon Martin whooped the shit out of George Zimmerman. REALLY? Seriously, how does Cornell University chose this clown from MSLSD to speak during the annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Commemorative Lecture? Shame on Cornell for thinking they would get anything thought provoking or intellectual from the likes of Melissa Harris-Perry. Do any of you actually watch her on MSNBC? Obviously not by their TV ratings.
Embarrassing & Disrespectful speech brought to you by same individual that asked AG Holder to quack like a duck
MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry said Monday that she hoped Trayvon Martin “whooped the s**t out of George Zimmerman” before he was fatally shot.
“I hope [Martin] tried to stay alive,” Harris-Perry said, speaking at the university’s Martin Luther King Jr. Commemorative Lecture. “I hope he knew that he lived in a state with a ‘Stand Your Ground’ law.”
“And I hope he whooped the s**t out of George Zimmerman. And it’s not disreputable because he encountered a stranger who was prepared to kill him and you know how I know? Because he killed him,” the MSNBC host added.
The Cornell Review did not appear to be that impressed either by the actions of Melissa Harris-Perry, ‘MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry Curses, Jokes in MLK Speech at Cornell’.
What a shame and an embarrassment for Cornell it was to feature MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry as the speaker at the annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Commemorative Lecture on Feb. 23.
The event, titled “We Can’t Breathe: The Continuing Consequences of Inequality,” was ostensibly meant to serve as a thought-provoking reflection on contemporary race relations and the role the teachings of Dr. King should play today in light of recent elevation of racial tensions due to the cases involving Michael Brown, Eric Garner, and Tamir Rice.
Instead, Harris-Perry delivered an hour-long comedy routine lightly mixed in, here and there, with some serious thought. Though she did reference Dr. King on numerous occasions, Harris-Perry clearly established from the very beginning that this event was really just about Harris-Perry, and not Dr. King, one of the greatest figures of the 20th century. After a humbling introduction delivered by Dean of Students Kent Hubbell, which referenced Dr. King’s 1960 speech at Cornell and also honored Cornellians slain in the Civil Rights Movement, Harris-Perry started off by taking a “selfie” with the audience behind her.
For the university’s annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Commemorative Lecture, Harris-Perry delivered remarks entitled “We Can’t Breathe: The Continuing Consequences of Inequality.” The campus conservative newspaper, The Cornell Review, published video from the event showing the MSNBC host saying the following about the night Martin was fatally shot by Zimmerman:
I hope [Martin] tried to stay alive. I hope he knew that he lived in a state with a “Stand Your Ground’ law. And I hope he whooped the shit out of George Zimmerman. And it’s not disreputable because he encountered a stranger who was prepared to kill him, and you know how I know? Because he killed him.
Jimmy Kimmel Live: The Most Disturbing Edition Ever of ‘Lie Witness News’ … Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Edition
The most disturbing edition ever of ‘Lie Witness News’
Every week, ABC late night host Jimmy Kimmel of ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ sends his cameras out onto the streets of L.A. to ask pedestrians ridiculous and over the top questions from was it right to make a Godzilla movie to last years Obama’s SOTU speach. The segment is called “Lie Witness News.” This week the topic was the speech that Martin Luther King Jr. gave this morning in Washington, DC. Sadly, the results were beyond pathetic. Seriously, just how ignorant have some people become in the United States. Newsflash, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr was assassinated at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, Tennessee, on Thursday April 4, 1968, at the age of 39.
People have shown their ignorance on many occasions, this once just might take the cake. Watch the below VIDEO and be prepared to just shake your head in disbelief.
“Today, on Dr. Martin Luther King Day, we asked 14 people if they saw the speech Dr. King gave this morning — and seven of them said they had.”
One guy said he thought King looked like he had gained weight and even offered some advice on how MLK could get back in shape: “You need to hit the treadmill, cardiovascular and all that.” He added, “You can do it — I believe in you.”
SNL … ‘MLK’ Learns What’s Going on in America Today and He’s Not Happy About It … “I Guess We’re Still Climbing That Mountain.”
SNL did a skit over the weekend with the ghost of Martin Luther King Jr. visiting a boy who needed to do a report on the Civil Rights leader.
When the boy informed MLK, played by Kenan Thompson, he was not all that impressed with the state of affairs in America. When told that the US elected its first black president, Barack Obama, MLK respoded, you said Barack O-what now … sounds like a Kenyan Muslim. Hmm, I guess it would have sounded more like one if student, Pete Davidson, had said his full name, Barack Hussein Obama.
Throughout the skit, MLK kept saying … “I guess we’re still climbing that mountain”.
I guess it would have been asking too much on liberal SNL to say that it was really race hustler Al Sharpton leading the civil rights movement and instead of protesting over the deaths of those like 14 year old Emmett Till, whose only crime was talking to a married, 21 year old white woman in 1955 Money Mississippi, today’s civil right movement was all about protesting the death of a black a punk at the hands of a white police officer, who committed a strong arm robbery of a store and then assaulted a police officer trying to take his gun. Yea, I get the two confused myself.
Also, not being told to the ghost of MLK was the division caused by the first elected black president, Barack Obama. Also absent was any reference that black Americans have been worse off under Obama. And I wonder why SNL excluded the fact that Americans believe that race relations are worse under the first elected black president? From the Civil Rights icon who famously made the following statement, “I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character” would say about Barack Obama who used skin color and appearances in interjecting himself in the Trayvon Martin case, ‘If I Had A Son, He’d Look Like Trayvon.’
The ghost of “Martin Luther King Jr.,” played by Kenan Thompson, paid a visit to a boy trying to write a school paper on the upcoming holiday during this week’s “Saturday Night Live.”
But it was ‘MLK,’ not the kid, who wound up learning a lot during the sketch — and he didn’t like most of what he learned.
When he hears that the first black president is named Barack Obama, ‘MLK’ blurts out, “Barack O-what now? He sounds like a Kenyan Muslim!”
“MLK” gets hit with a slew of downer news — the boulevards that bear his name aren’t in the nicest neighborhoods, “Selma” got snubbed for Oscar consideration, and Macklemore, “like, the whitest dude ever,” is the face of American hip-hop.
“We’re still climbing that mountain,” “MLK” says sadly.
