Dennis Miller, Bill O’Reilly Join BlogTalkRadio’s Fight for a Flag Honoring America’s Fallen Soldiers

Last we told you about the campaign to establish an official flag honoring the 1.6 million U.S. military troops who have died in action since America’s founding 232 years ago, the issue had been taken up on Capitol Hill.

With a little luck, the recently-introduced bill to designate the Honor and Remember Flag as the official flag of our fallen soldiers – as no such flag currently exists – will become a law in 2009.

“Dennis is campaigning for a unique flag to honor those killed fighting for America,” Bill said of the Honor and Remember flag.

Meanwhile, we’re happy to report that comedian Dennis Miller and Fox News Channel host Bill O’Reilly have joined the fight for this cause that BlogTalkRadio took national on July 4.

Last week, on The O’Reilly Factor, Bill called HonorAndRemember.org “a very worthy charity.” He also let viewers know that his pal Dennis is on board with the campaign.

“I cannot be humbled enough that these two honorable and influential men actually understood the importance of this historic vision,” HonorAndRemember.org founder George Lutz – whose son, Army Cpl. Tony Lutz, was killed by a sniper in Iraq in December 2005 – tells us.

“Since The O’Reilly Factor mention, more than 4,000 signatures were added to our petition,” he added. “Please continue to spread the word. Thank you, thank you, thank you!”

If enacted, the federal legislation would require that the flag be flown at the White House, Capitol, World War II Memorial, Vietnam Veterans Memorial, national cemeteries, and other federal grounds.

    That’s funny, I thought we honored and remembered our fallen soldiers with the American flag, not a bad logo designed by right-wingers. Keywords in this post: 4,000 signatures. It’s a poor idea, poorly executed.

    If the right stopped making so many jean jackets, bathing suits, cowboy hats, etc (all in violation of the Flag Code, BTW…) out of Old Glory maybe it would still mean something to them in this context. To imply that “some people” forget the importance of this stuff is an insult to ALL Americans.

    LET O’REILLY START BY WEARING A FLAG PIN AND WORK HIS WAY UP.
    DENNIS MILLER IS A SUNSHINE PATRIOT. THERE WAS MORE OPPORTUNITY ON THE CONSERVATIVE SIDE. HE MADE A SMART BUSINESS CALL. BOTH OF THESE GUYS ARE FROM 9-10 NEW YORK CITY. O’REILLY DID GREAT DEFENDING 911 VICTIMS I LOVE HIM FOR TAKING THE RED CROSS TO TASK. BUT HE IS A NEW YORKER THE TOWN THAT HAS BEEN SAVED FROM EXTERMINATION BY 4200 WARRIORS WHO CA,E HOME IN FLAG DRAPED COFFINS THAT 48 SENATORS VOTED TO BURN AND 50,000 WOUNDED. YET THIS 910 UNGRATEFUL NEW YORK BUSH BASHING CITY LED BY MAYOR BLOOMINGSALE AND THE DONALD THE EGO TRUMPET NEVER ONCE BOUGHT A GI A CUP OF COFEE. OFFERED THE KEYS TO THE CITY TO THE 10TH MOUNTAIN DIV AND 911 NEW YORKERS FROM ALL OVER THE COUNTRY. NOT A BREAKFAST, A CAB RIDE, A HOTEL ROOM, A BROADWAY SHOW. IF YOU WANT TO SUPPORT THE TROOPS PUT YOUR MONEY WHERE YOUR EGO IS.

    The great enemy of clear language is insincerity. When there is a gap between one’s real and one’s declared aims, one turns, as it were, instinctively to long words and exhausted idioms, like what Dennis Miller has built his act around.
