A San Diego State University sophomore was forced to remove an American flag from his balcony after apartment managers said foreigners could find the display offensive.

Brad Smith, who had just moved into the Boulevard 63 apartment complex in San Diego last month, told ABC 10 News that he received a written notice to remove the flag a few days ago.

“We were then told that it was for political reasons and that the flag could offend foreign people that live here, foreign exchange students,” Smith said. “I’ve had friends and family fight to defend that flag.”

While Smith’s lease agreement with the apartment’s management does have a clause that says “no signs or other personal property may be kept outside the premises,” attorney Christian Curry told ABC. that the clause comes close to infringing on First Amendment rights.

“Clearly, they want to keep it clean and that’s something they want to accomplish,” Curry said. “It’s a compelling reason, but it’s hardly a reason that’s going to overcome your free speech.”

Management initially told ABC that anyone who hangs a flag would be asked to take it down; however, it looks like the management capitulated after the media highlighted the story. An associate of the owners of the apartment complex told ABC there was a “misunderstanding,” and that the flag would be allowed to fly.

How incredible dense do you have to be to think this was a good idea?

Woodruff, S.C. – 7 On Your Side was contacted by several upset parents who say Woodruff High School students were made to take down American flags from their vehicles on September 11.

Spartanburg District 4 Superintendent Rallie Liston said four students arrived at the school Thursday morning with U.S. flags propped up on poles in their pickup truck beds.

The school’s principal, Aaron Fulmer, confiscated the flags because he said it is against district policy to “draw attention” to one’s vehicle.

The flags were returned to the students at the end of the day.

Resident DEFIES Orders to Stop Flying the American Flag… Awesome

Conservative Tribune

In Obama’s America, flying the Stars and Stripes is an inappropriate display of affection for one’s country.

According to liberal thought, all who hail from the greatest nation on earth should hang their head in shame for all of the “evil” perpetrated by America and as a result should apologize profusely to anyone from a foreign country, just like our wonderful Commander-in-Chief who made his “apology tour” early on in his term.

Unfortunately for progressives, that’s not how it works here, regardless of how many attempts they make at forcing people to take down their flags, which is something that seems to be common place as of late.

Take for example an Islamic landlord in Texas who tried to force her tenant to take down his flag, saying it was a “threat to Muslims.”

According to Mad World News, a similar situation has popped up in Ohio, as 86-year-old Julia Lease received a note from her landlord asking her to take her flag down from her front porch.

“Please remove flag from your front porch. Thank you!”

As Kathleen Fox with The Paducah Sun reported, an art teacher at a Kentucky High School set up an exhibit where students were supposed to stand on an American flag while they wrote how they felt about it. Art teacher Shand Stamper at McCracken High School in Paducah set a music stand with paper to write on on top of the flag so that students could contemplate their feelings and then note them. 

The exhibit was a re-creation of “Dread” Scott Tyler’s 1989 “artwork”  titled “The Proper Way to Display an American Flag.”
