Scott Walker Has Hand On Heart And Fingers Crossed

By Jeff Simpson

The flag debate is one that seems to be ramping up instead of losing steam.   

We have covered, and everyone has covered, the professional athletes protests during the national anthem. 

The Donald has done what he does best - ramp up the hatred to try and win.    He sent one of his many errand boys - Mike Pence - to an NFL game to make a big show of walking out when the players took a knee.   

The planned out "protest" cost the taxpayers over $250,000, but a lesson needed to be taught to African Americans for thinking they had a voice in our country.   

I left today's Colts game because and I will not dignify any event that disrespects our soldiers, our Flag, or our National Anthem.

Thank Goodness you would never disrespect our soldiers! 

Scott Walker, still with his crazed Presidential ambitions, after all he still thinks God told him He wants him to be President(although I think it may have actually been Amy that told him that) . 

Scott Walker felt the need to weigh in on the flag debate. to let us know how Patriotic he is

Asked if he would walk out of a Packers game if he saw players kneeling during the Anthem, the governor replied: 
"Well, thankfully I've seen them stand. I was at the games a couple weeks ago. You know, the bottom line is I expect my family to stand. It's how my parents raised me, that when the flag goes by in a parade or the national anthem is sung, no matter where you are, you stand and put your had over your heart."
While he did not directly answer whether he would walk out, Walker did call on players and fans to do what he does.
"The appropriate response for me is to do what I expect others to do," he said. "That is stand, put my hand over my heart, and call on others to do the same."
"There are other ways to make their message be heard out there," Walker said. "I'd love for them to find better ways that don't offend service members and veterans in this country."
Well Scott is well known for his short term memory loss, only rivaling the amount of hypocrisy he has. 

Scott Walker seems to have forgotten that he once made a production of showing how well he can take care of the flag, while actually doing it wrong!

Then Scott Walker showed his unwavering support for veterans by passing a voter ID bill, that made Veterans ID's ineligible.  

Also during the Capitol Protests, he had one of the Solidarity Singers arrested.  This particular Solidarity Singer is a vietnam war veteran and American Hero, who was treated so poorly, he was actually thrown down the stairs.   

But Wait!!  There is more----- 

According to US Flag Code: §176. Respect for flag:

  • (d) The flag should never be used as wearing apparel, bedding, or drapery. It should never be festooned, drawn back, nor up, in folds, but always allowed to fall free. Bunting of blue, white, and red, always arranged with the blue above, the white in the middle, and the red below, should be used for covering a speaker's desk, draping the front of the platform, and for decoration in general.

(i) The flag should never be used for advertising purposes in any manner whatsoever. It should not be embroidered on such articles as cushions or handkerchiefs and the like, printed or otherwise impressed on paper napkins or boxes or anything that is designed for temporary use and discard. Advertising signs should not be fastened to a staff or halyard from which the flag is flown.

Of course we have come to expect the Wisconsin Media to take dictation and not ask for follow up of any of these blatant issues of hypocrisy.     

As long as Scott Walker knows he will not ever have to answer for his ever changing positions, I guess he will continue playing us for the sucker!

PS;  Extra Credit:  Scott Walker, always the politician, and one of 17 people who vied to be the GOP nominee for President (of which The Donald emerged), felt the need to weigh in on the Democratic Primary for Governor(and of course was unchallenged):

He also took a swipe at the size of the Democratic field."One after another's running because they look at the field and aren't satisfied that that person's good enough, so they keep moving to the next and the next and the next," he said.
