Fined $50 per Day for Flying US Flag

Moonbattery

 

Patriotism appears to be a crime in Statesville, North Carolina, where an RV dealership is getting fined because bureauweenies disapprove of the size of the US flag it flies:

Camping World posted a message to its Facebook page on Saturday saying the city has filed an injunction against Camping World, fining the company $50 per day going back to Oct. 15, 2018. That totals nearly $11,000.

The flag is 40′ × 80′. Bureaucrats forbid it on the grounds that flags within 100 feet of a highway can be no larger than 25′ × 40′.

Camping World flies its full-sized flags at over 200 locations throughout the country including elsewhere in North Carolina. Apparently only Statesville has a problem with it. An attempt to amend the ordinance failed.

“I don’t care if it goes to $500 a day. It’s not coming down,” Marcus Lemonis, CEO and chairman of Camping World and Gander RV, said.

That’s the spirit.
