Obama flag makes a comeback at 50th anniversary of March on Washington, thousands rally to ‘make some noise’

A new Old Glory, another Obama flag, was seen during the 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington Saturday, via Twitchy.

 Thousands rallied in Washington DC to commemorate the anniversary.

It was on Aug. 28, 1963, that the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his renowned “I Have a Dream” speech from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. The speech and the march helped bring about passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965.

 “I gave a little blood on that bridge in Selma, Ala., for the right to vote,” John Lewis (D-GA) said. “I am not going to stand by and let the Supreme Court take the right to vote away from us.”

“You cannot stand by. You cannot sit down,” he said. “You got to stand up. Speak up. Speak out, and get in the way. Make some noise!”

“Fifty years later, their march is now our march, and it must go on,” AG Eric Holder told the crowd, pointing to a broadened push for equality for women, Latinos, Asian Americans, gays and lesbians, and people with disabilities.

Making noise on conservative websites is the appearance of Obama flags.
