ALBANY, Ore. - At the Oaks Apartments in Albany, the management can fly their own flag advertising one and two bedroom apartments - but residents have been told they can't fly any flags at all.
Jim Clausen flies the American flag from the back of his motorcycle. He has a son in the military heading back to Iraq, and the flag - he said - is his way of showing support.
"This flag stands for all those people," said Clausen, an Oaks Apartment resident. "It stands for the people that can no longer stand - who died in wars. That's why I fly this flag."
But to Oaks Apartment management, Clausen said, the American flag symbolizes problems.
He was told to remove the red, white and blue from both of his rides, or face eviction.
"It floored me," he said. "I can't believe she was saying what she was saying."
Even long-time residents like Sharron White, who has flown a flag on her car for eight years, has been told to take it down.
White said management told her that "someone might get offended."
"Someone might get offended."
Progressive Freedom of liberal speech means they can burn it, and piss on it, but you can't salute it, or fly it.
This revolutionary diversity dissembling of our countries cultural foundations isn't new. It has been building a structural social tear down, and rebuild, machine for decades.
Banning our USA Flag is happening, and has been happening, all across the land...because our proud flag might offend intolerant people with diverse opinions regarding it's historical symbolism ...(or as apologist Mr. WORLD himself could be expected to say over tea at Ayers house with Iminnadinajacket)
...with all it's flaws...
Remember Obama says, "I don’t mind people wearing pins or putting stickers on their cars as a show of support for their country or their cause. I am, however, irritated by the notion that so doing makes them somehow superior to those who don’t."
I'll say it again - It's so nice of Obama to not mind people showing their support for their country, isn't it? ...but what irritates me, is the notion that Obama doesn't seem to understand that The symbol of the USA, it's pins, stickers and Flag, does not make people feel superior.
Mr. Obama --- it makes them feel "PROUD!"
Barry O's 'superior' flag symbol comment foretold his apologizing for America's supposed flawed transgressions and trespasses on the world, to the world.
The manager, Barb Holcomb, of this Apt. complex, who enables America hating agitating complainers, trained by bitter seeking people like dealer Obama, ought to hire an ACORN Boat and get all of your sensitive, fellow traveling, irritated butts the Ef out of our country.
If you Marx Pushers don't like it in America, don't change it - just get the hell out.
update: Upon further review: Flag ban lifted
