I’m at a loss for words at how much this makes me feel sick to my stomach

Really, it’s beyond offensive. That’s all I have to say about this for now. I guess I should edit this and say this flag was flying below the true Stars and Bars at the Democratic Party Headquarters (gee, go figure) in Lake County, Florida. A group of veterans insisted it be taken down or they would do it for them, to which Nancy Hurlbert, Democratic Party Chairwoman, declared it was private property and she would call the police if they tried. The veterans told her it was in violation of the federal flag code, but there seems to be opposing views on whether this violated the code, which is not a criminal offense at any rate. The flag was eventually taken down, but apparently had flown for two months before it was noticed.
