Julia Lease from Whitehall, OH has been ordered by her leasing company to take her new American flag off her porch because they state it is “making this complex look bad. It’s detracting from the beauty of everything else.”
“I’ve lived here 36 years and I’ve flown a flag every day since and now all of a sudden they want this flag taken down because they say it detracts from the looks of the apartment complex. Well I can’t see how an American flag can detract from anything. After all, this is our country,” states Lease.
She was told she would get a second notice and if she didn’t take the flag down, they would.
“Our soldiers are fighting for this flag, why can’t I fly it?” Lease asks.
We are seeing more and more cases where the American flag is becoming an unwanted sight. We’ve posted a story about a man in California ordered to take own his flag from inside his apartment, a veteran who was fined $8000 and had a foreclosure lien placed on his home for having a tiny flag in his flowerpot, and a story about a Texas man who was told to take down his flag because it was a ‘threat to the Muslim community’.
