Maybe you have a picture? Will they be around Hillary when she speaks do you think?
I'm sure they will be there.
Not so far and believe me I am looking. This is someone running for president of the US and no flags around anywhere? Very odd. If they hear we have all noticed after all this time I am sure they will come up with some...well maybe.
Yes, there were lots of pictures. Look at the sources. Flags on the screen (not always during speeches) and on the stage. And in the crowd. You said "no" flags? It's simply not true and no need to spread lies and rumors.
I said the first day until they were forced to have them, not of themselves and I have to wonder why. What is with that? I use to be a democrat, you make me so glad I am no longer. No eyes to see and no ears to hear. Thank God I walked away.

I don't know about sacrificing babies but we all saw how thrilled they were at killing them didn't we? Or did you miss those facts?
Comedy gold is a good way to put it. This thread is just getting silly. :-)
I guess everyone is wrong but you Vicki. http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/3453051/pos...
Jackie, everyone on this thread has given you valid sources. Facts are facts. Rumors are not. I don't know why you're insisting that everyone is wrong.

Spreading lies is about all the RNC knows how to do. That and calling people names and making fun of poor and disabled people.
How would I even know you were poor or disabled? I would love for you to show me one picture of a flag there and have been trying my best to see if this rumor is true and it looks to me as if it is. I believe what I see not what someone tells me.
There are lots of pictures in the snopes article.
Yes I just saw a video about no flags at all Monday night and after all the complaints they rushed in 8 flags tonight. Still, I sure did not see one myself. Why would they have a presidential convention and not even think to have a US flag?
Jackie, if you don't look, you won't see. If you can't stomach watching the Dem Convention at length, surly you could have turned to it for a minute or 2 and seen all the flags lined up on the stage behind the speakers. I watched both conventions.
Flags were not there the first day, they had to be shamed into them and that is the one true fact. Show me day one flags any of you!
Flags were there the first night too. Even Fox News had to rectify the previous information.
No, lets just tell you what you WANT to hear, Jackie: there is EVIL afoot and we need to be DILIGENT so that God doesn't let it GET US. Why would they be so COY about it? Why not just replace the 'stars quarter' with a pentagram and make a new flag?
Why does no one have a photo of a flag there on day one? Because there is none.
Jackie, you asked for pictures and were shown them. Just admit that you were mistaken and move on.

PD Poole says
I said first day and your video proves it showing only the second day proof flags were up. Make sure of your facts why don't you?
Catherine Mostly says
It has been confirmed no US flags the first day but when Trump pointed it out they got them in PDQ. Being an ex-Democrat I do have eyes and there was none the first day. They made sure to big deal it afterwards.
At 31:31 there is a collage of flags and their signs have the flag embedded into them. Only suspicious people and their manipulative overlords would make such a judgement of 'they aren't utilizing the AF right! Stop believing everything they tell you
Maybe you should check yours IslandBites, there are no flags unless you are meaning those metal ones in the poles of the building as part of a sign? Couldn't they do better than that, that is not having flags & the red/ white stripes neither are.
By any chance did you see the first night? I getting the suspicion you didnt.
Sure did, Day 1 apparently you didn't. Blouses and hats don't count as a flag to me. Had nothing to do with DNC. They didn't have them and you should really find out nearly everyone reporting that now... so don't embarrass yourself further.
In other words you didnt...nice try. Little secret...moving the goal post doesn't spare you from totally losing this argument. I know BS when I see it. My advice to you: never out fox a fox for the fox will out fox you.
I am right, you are wrong. I have all proof I need but I have moved away from being the kind of person that hangs onto lies for a party's sake. I'm only after truth & to be attacked like this by Democrats lets me know I did right leaving them.
I'm independent. I hate ideologists. And I particularly don't care for those that live in denial when confronted with real facts. What have you done? We tell you that story is bogus. Suddenly it's about the first day. then denied when that fail
The bottom line is, the Dems OBVIOUSLY made a big deal about the flag whether they had REAL flags displayed as prominently as the GOP did. Who had more (or the right) flags only proves the pettiness of people reaching for ANYTHING to prove Dems EVIL.
There were MASSIVE video boards that displayed images of American flags whenever there wasn't content being streamed on them. You couldn't see them on TV, because the cameras were zoomed in on speakers.
The video clearly shows you're wrong. Now you can't claim ignorance, you're just a liar. Minute 30 to minute 34, actual flags presented before Pledge of Allegiance, multiple digital flags while the kid interpreted the anthem.

David Hunt says
I asked a simple legitimate question and I got the answer and I was right. Day one, no flags. I would think you of all people would know the truth before you speak. I always seek truth. Always.
B S!!!! There were flags there. Stop believing the Red State Propaganda machine. Take 30 seconds to find the truth - FactCheck.org. Snopes.Com or TruthorFiction.com. All reputable non-partisan organizations. Don't be a purveyor of lies.

Larry Wall says
I said the first day...people jumped them and then they got the flags. NO FLAGS DAY ONE!!!!
I cannot prove it, but I bet there was a flag on a high pole outside the arena. Overall, if someone forgot to hang a flag on the first day, it does not merit this level of accusation. The flag is made of cloth. Progress is made from ideas and action.
Another link claiming there was none http://www.actionnewsjax.com/news/trending-now/fac...
I will say again that the Color Guard came out with the flag for the Pledge of Allegiance (which was recited with "under God." ) There was also a large flag on the video screen. Afterwards, they left the stage, and there were no more flags.
Wrong! No flags. http://dailycaller.com/2016/07/25/no-visible-ameri...

Dan W Miller says
There were no flags the first day and I hope HP does investigate and make a judgement. I invite it! I only want the truth in all things.
No flags Day 1 I am owed many apologies.
I'm very confused! Are we referring to NO flags being presented or no flags left on the stage all day? Please clarify.

Catherine Tally says
Interestingly, most African-Americans were Republicans until the 1960s when the Civil Rights Act was finally passed. 10% of the Union Army was comprised of runaway slaves, and the Obama push for slavery reparations is bogus Tea Party fluff.
Democrats were the KKK...so what?
The democrats of the 1860s had nothing in common with the democratic party of today. They were the Anti-Lincoln Southerners who felt blacks didn't deserve equal rights- many were KKK.
What about those emails with democrats talking down about Hispanics etc. That was just days ago wasn't it? More to come out about it too. We may see how much they have changed, huh?
i'm unfamiliar with what you are referencing. I'd be interested to read about it.
You don't know about the most recent emails in Hillary's campaign no less. Where have you been?

Note there was one Palestinian flag there, not blind at all, but you seeing things?
If you are referring to the stage area, then neither party had actual flags. Both parties used digital moving pictures of flags in order to keep the stage clear to make it safer. Flags were encouraged via pins and miny flags by both parties
Were there any Real Americans at the DNC?
I am in the middle of Bill Clinton's speech and have not seen a flag yet? Nor did I anytime earlier I checked in to see what was going on.
There are 4 flags on each side of the podium, for a total of 8. If you cannot see them, you need a new tv set or new glasses. And surely you saw that Meryl Streep was wearing the flag? Brad, what do you consider a REAL American?
Jackie, the the picture showing the Palestinian flags (there's 2) is obviously photoshopped and a bad one at it. The seating is far different from the arena the DNC was in for starters. Tone and color with stage differs, too.
Even Faux News apologized for the mistaken report of no flags
No it is a fact first day no flags, they had to be scared into it.
I'm done. This is just becoming an exercise in confirmation bias.
Why would I make this all up? I use to be a Democrat but I was never a liar.
I don't know you. but when several people point out the story is bogus, and you choose to look for something to confirm your ideological belief that tells all i need to know.The truth is the truth and doesn't care for that political crap.
That wasn't a real photo. Have you not read about that? There were flags all over the crowd! Did you even watch it live?
The first day until they got jumped there was not one flag (well American, that is). A fact. Catch up.
Day 1 - Digital flags plus actual flags
Maybe not a liar, but an ignorant. Now you know.
Here no Democrat respects any of the flag rules and as someone pointed out this is not the first time a flag falls in Hillary's presence. http://insider.foxnews.com/2016/07/29/watch-americ...

Actually Dianna I am hearing it was the first two days but I mean who knows, I can't imagine why any presidential candidate nor staff would forget the flag so I wonder if it wasn't on purpose and if so why? I just simply would like to know.
They did, actually., show flags. They were on the screen,plus off to the sides. :-) Jackie just won't listen. ;-)
Vicki, Jackie also censors you if you point that out to her. Don't be surprised if she does the same to you.
You two are the ones who won't listen. http://dailycaller.com/2016/07/25/no-visible-ameri...
No jackie. You're the one who can't look past your own confirmation bias. Dig in your heels all you want. You'll just look like a fool for doing so.
The reason I delete ppl like you 2 is because you just put in a couple words and take up space which HP tells us to delete, you have nothing to add. Maybe U wanna see this?
Give it break, please. You deleted us because we shook the foundation you think is the truth. And that scares you. You are a walking, talking example of confirmation bias. Face the fire and stop lying to yourself as well as us.
Look at the corrupt, lying, treasoning government you are defending, dare to call me untruthful. Saddest thing is U know the truth, U just don't care, selling your soul for a certain party, one that will be clear to everyone soon when it is 2 late.
Yeah sure whatever...I'm an independant. So an ideologist trying tell me I'm a follower is silly. I'll state again: I have huge problem with fake news sites that affirm misguided beliefs rather than inform.
I always look for truth but Hillary followers do not which I am sure you are. I know your language and attitude. https://youtu.be/Rlfbi24kN44
Jackie, you're mired in conspiracy theories. I still have a several page pdf someone created just before Obama was about to be elected the 1st time - about how the year 2008 was the end of the world due to him being elected THAT YEAR. Eight years ago
How about I voted for him first term but I am not blind I saw real quick as I see now how he is up to no good & it is there for all to see! What about this last trick he pulled paying ransom?! He should not only be impeached but thrown in prison!
Do you remember why you voted for him? I remember why I did; and I also remember that a LOT of us thought that George W. should have been impeached on more than one occassion. Why demonize people? They are no different than us. Hard to respect that.
So you know my language and attitude.riight ! you posted one of the most laughable video I've seen on YouTube (with the exception of the water skiing squirrel). Now we've entered the lunatic fringe.
I had no idea who Obama was when I voted for him, just who he said he was & I know for a fact that is not who he is. Dean you sure jump in to defend Democrats pretty quick to not be one & it isn't just me, there are thousands or millions who
Exactly where did I say I was defending them? Once again I'm going after the loons and fakers behind all the garbage you're putting forth as "evidence". And what were trying say near the end of your post?
Dean, there's no use in trying to point someone to look at real sources when they are insisting on stubbornly defending their own ideas/lies that they want to be true. I'm an Independent, too. I've voted for both parties, but I look for truth, too.
I was saying prob millions of us voted for O but now see him for what he is and anyone is blind who cannot. Here is more on your trusted Snopes Vicki. http://www.wnd.com/2009/03/91196/
I just want truth. I'm tired of the lies and the hate. There's too much of that in the world. We all need to think for ourselves and spread truth, not lies and hate.
Wnd! Wing nut Daily...sigh...it was a matter of time someone mention it.
Here is a liar if you want to hear one? Now I am done with you two who will not hear the truth so apparently you have been made to believe a lie. I don't fight things like that, you are hopeless. https://youtu.be/vczoazK1mxU
No need to view it. I think I've had ALL the lies I can handle in one day. Any more I'll need a shovel.
