USA Flag Pin Not Cool Anymore?

After 9/11, almost every politician that appeared on television wore a USA flag pin on their lapelle. But last night on "Real Time with Bill Maher", Christopher Hitchens appeared to be wearing an Iraqi flag pin on his lapelle.

Also from last night, Hitchens seemed to be very frustrated by the audience. He flipped off the crowd on two occasions. I captured one of those flips and uploaded it to YouTube.

UPDATE: The flag pin on his lapelle was a Kurdistani flag, not Iraqi. He talks about it in this interview. Thanks to the annonymous person who left a comment on this post.


  • It's a Kurdistani flag. He's been wearing it for awhile. He talks about it in this interview.

  • Agreed. He's been wearing it for YEARS and spoken about it in almost every appearance.

  • Sorry, I don't really follow Hitchens that much. I get sickened by people like him.

  • Pero es un borracho total... But he's a total drunk, Myrna... We saw him in L.A. a few months ago, sizzled and swizzled, blabbering in front of a bored audience. The guy is pathetic. He needs rehab. Until then, we should just give him "tough love" and leave him out in the cold and out of our conversations. !Pobre idiota!
