What’s Happening to Patriotism?

I’m really bothered about an unpatriotic trend against our Flag, Old Glory. The Pledge of Allegiance has already been decimated. This week the UC Irvine campus has a small group of students who want the American Flag removed because it might offend students from other countries. I’ll withhold my thoughts on that!!!!!

Last weekend, the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King’s march across the Selma bridge was televised. On Twitter, a number of people spotted an important difference to MLK’s march to this year’s march. Two photos were tweeted and retweeted as they quickly spread throughout the Twittersphere.

Here are the two photos. Can you spot what the difference is that riled up Tweeps???
