As long as twenty years ago, the liberal public school system stopped teaching American patriotism and replaced it with globalism. A generation of kids have been taught that America and our free enterprise system is the world’s enemy and responsible for many of the world’s problems. Instead of being loyal and patriotic to America, students are being taught to be loyal and patriotic to the world. They are taught to down play American patriotism.
If you’ve paid any attention in the past 5 years, you will see just how successful the public school brainwashing program has been. We have heard of a growing number of cases where American citizens are being harassed, persecuted and even prosecuted for their American patriotism.
Thus is the case of Duy Tran of Houston, Texas. A few days after moving into a new apartment at The Lodge on El Dorado Apartments, he proudly hung his American flag from the balcony of his apartment. Tran told KHOU-TV, a local Houston news station:
“It means a lot to me”
But like the generation of brainwashed socialists coming out of our public schools, the apartment manager told Tran that he had to take his flag down. When he asked why, he was told that his American flag was ‘a threat to the Muslim community.’
Tran said he was stunned when he heard their reason, saying that he isn’t a threat to anyone.
When KHOU-TV heard what happened, they tried to contact the apartment manager, only to be confronted by the police who escorted them off the apartment property. The apartment management then released the following statement:
“While the Lodge on El Dorado admires our residents’ 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.”
Before KHOU-TV was ordered to leave the property by the police, they noticed that other residents had patriotic displays on their balconies. They also managed to speak to some of Tran’s neighbors and didn’t hear complaints about his American flag and some even said they would like for it to stay.
When asked what he was going to do, Tran responded:
“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. I have friends that died for this country.”
This is America! From the Revolutionary War to today, over 1.3 million Americans died for the American flag and another 1.5 million have been wounded defending it. If Muslims or anyone else is offended or threatened by the displaying of the American flag, they need to take it up with those that have sacrificed life and limb for the flag.
When I read reports like this I tend to get quite angry. If someone is offended by the American flag, then they need to get their sorry rear-ends out of OUR country and go back to where they came from. I’m sick and tired hearing about Americans and Christians losing their rights and freedoms because someone else ‘might’ be offended or see it as a threat.
As for Muslims, I see them as a direct and serious threat to everything America and the Cross stands for. But will anyone care that I’m offended by them or see them as a threat? Not at all!
Tran needs to fly his American flag and if anyone complains, he should hand them a map back to their country and wish them a speedy trip!
