Earlier today I noted a ridiculous story about a logo at the Missile Defense Administration’s web site.  It turns out, as Fox New reports, that the logo is (as I speculated) for the web site and isn’t a replacement for anything and that it predates the Obama administration:

"It’s ridiculous," [Richard] Lehner [a spokesman for the Missile Defense Agency] told Fox News. "It isn’t a new logo to replace the official logo. It’s a logo developed for recruiting materials and for our public Web site. Also, it was used prior to the 2024 election and it has no link to any political campaign."

And yet the net is rampant with people buying into Gaffney’s theory that the logo represents the melding of the Obama campaign logo with the crescent to send a message of capitulation to radical Islam (such as here, here or earlier on the Drudge Report—screen cap here) or people convinced, at least, that this was the direct hand of the White House forcing a version of the Obama logo onto the Missile Defense Administration (such as here, here, here, and here for examples).

And the folks at WaTi think that in addition to the Obama logo that it looks like the logo for the Iranian space agency.  The above-linked Weasel Zippers also sees Obama-logo inspiration in the Aereospace Data Facility’s logo.  After all, prior to the Obama campaign no one had ever used red, white and blue in a circular logo before—especially not in the US government.

Talk about a fascinating study in a political Rorschach test…

      Makes you wonder how long before Shriner’s with their fez and scimitar regalia get hauled in, or the NOPD who have a crescent and star in their badge.

      Not to mention crescent rolls! The horror is all around us.
