Man says apartment complex called his US flag a ‘threat to Muslim community’
by Alice Barr
WEBSTER, Texas — A Webster man says his apartment complex manager told him his American flag was a “threat to the Muslim community,” and that he has to take it down. But he’s not giving up without a fight.
Stepping onto Duy Tran’s balcony in Webster, one thing is clear: “It means a lot to me,” he said.
He’s talking about his American flag that he proudly put up when he moved in just a few days ago. But then an apartment manager at the Lodge on El Dorado told him he had to take it down.
“What really stunned me is that she said it’s a threat towards the Muslim community,” said Tran. “I’m not a threat toward anybody.”
There you go. The American flag is a threat to the Muslim community. Not in the Middle East, mind you. No. In the United States of America.
This occurred in Webster, Texas, at the Lodge on El Dorado apartment homes. Their mealy-mouthed pablum-smeared PC response:
“While the Lodge on El Dorado admires our resident’s patriotism, we must enforce our property rules and guidelines. Such guidelines maintain the aesthetics of our apartment community and provide for the safety of all residents. The apartment community already proudly displays our country’s flag in a safe and appropriate manner at the entrances to our community.”
A “safe and appropriate manner.” Just what would that be, pray tell? And how does one display the American flag in an unsafe and inappropriate manner?
However, Mr Tran has said:
“I’m gonna leave my flag there, as an American, until she shows me proof that I don’t have the right to leave my flag there,” said Tran.
To Tran it’s about so much more than stars and stripes.
“I have friends that died for this country,” he said.
First: good for Mr Tran. This is a man who plans to persevere in his efforts to honor the American flag.
Second: how is is that we as a nation have become so incredibly cowardly in the face of the Politically Correct Gestapo? It is fear that drives this Leftist movement. And apparently the administration in this Webster complex is comprised of the craven.
