Veteran’s Graves Desecrated on Memorial Day

washington-veteran-grave.jpgflags-burnt.jpgAt Orcas Island in Washington they prefer to dishonor our veterans and troops on Memorial day. It’s all about the timing, and it seems that the Washington moonbats have one-upped the Oregonians. The evil of the left and their hate for our country knows zero bounds, as both of these horrendous acts demonstrate. I know they feel bad that the adults realized a hasty exit from Iraq would be worse than hastily entering the war, but this goes beyond the pail.

UPDATE: There’s full local reportage at the SanJuanIslander., and there are letters to the editor about the outrage, curiously I found this section in one of them:

We will be following the news and will not support any individual, business or organization involved in this horrible incident during our future visits. This may not seem like a big financial impact, but if others did the same thing, I’m sure the consequences would be felt and a strong message be sent.

Additionally, it would go a long way toward healing the wounds that have just been inflicted by the vandalism, if this year for the Orcas July 4th festivities and Founders Day Parade, instead of the dominate pink theme we’ve seen the last several years, locals made a strong showing of the red, white and blue and some good old fashioned patriotic support and honoring of veterans and soldiers currently serving.

Is the town council overun with code pinkers? Orcas Island gained notoriety worldwide, but is this the notoriety they want?

AP story below the fold.

From AP:

Vandals burned dozens of small American flags that decorated veterans’ graves for Memorial Day and replaced many of them with hand-drawn swastikas, authorities said Monday.

Forty-six flags were burned completely and another 33 were found in charred tatters Sunday in the cemetery, authorities said. Swastikas drawn on paper appeared where 14 of the flags had been.

Members of the American Legion on this island off Washington’s northwest coast replaced the burned flags with new ones Sunday afternoon.

The vandals repeated the stunt on Memorial Day after a guard left at dawn, the San Juan County sheriff’s office said. This time, the vandals left 33 of the hand-drawn swastikas.

“This is not an act of free speech. This is a crime,” Sheriff Bill Cumming said in a statement released Monday afternoon.
