a patriotic rant

bald-eagle-and-flag-m

so i googled something close enough... with about the right size...

The other day i passed by a center for one of the “glorious” Lebanese Political Parties, to see a security guard with a large tattoo across his arm of the American Flag and Eagle…
I wanted to take a photo, but “he” was big and scary, and i wasn’t sure it was the right thing to do …

I have seen people with tattoos of their favorite football team, the country they grew up in.. they favorite rap star.. artist etc etc etc… The American flag by all means is fine by me …

But i can’t understand why a political party member pretending to the savior of the country would parade around with anything but the Lebanese flag and Cedar… at least “pretend” to be and hide your tattoo under your shirt

Call me ignorant, backward, or whatever… but it was VERY shocking and i couldn’t help but think: “How Patriotic!”

… Just a rant

    Good rant – but I am not really surprised.

    You’re forgetting that the American flag image is somehow associated with being “cool”. Also, what Yasmine said..

      He was a bit too old, to be a cool “wanna-be” …
      at least someone at the “political party headquarters” must have mentioned it looks wrong…|
      It’s not the kind of thing that should fly by..
