Remember when we used to hear stories like these from some crazy homeowners association? Now it's just business as usual under the Democrats.
State officials in Virginia ordered the removal of a large American flag from a construction site ahead of the Fourth of July, calling it a potential target for people protesting racial injustice and police brutality.
Dena Potter, spokeswoman for the state Department of General Services, said officials asked a contractor to take down the flag from a new office building for state lawmakers under construction in Richmond.
"Over the past month we've seen buildings and structures around Capitol Square vandalized and flags, dumpsters, a bus and other items set ablaze during demonstrations around the city," Potter said in an email.
So much for the Star-Spangled Banner and the flag as the symbol of national resilience.
If only Virginia authorities had some sort of function for keeping public order and forces under their authority tasked with preventing vandalism and assaults on government property.
"Since when is this flag, on this weekend, IN THIS COUNTRY, a Target!!" Eric Winston of American Coatings Corp. wrote in a Facebook post, according to the newspaper. "Let me guess, if I had a black lives matter flag it would be 'ok'!?"
Since the Democrats decided to let leftist and racist terrorists have free reign in areas under their control.
As long as Black Lives Matter terror continues, America is not a free country. It's that simple.
Mr. Governor , Mr. Mayor, or whoever made the call, stop letting the inmates run the assylum! This goes for politians,"that work for us", on both sides of the aisle! Grow a pair, and stop thinking everything we have or had in this once great state is offensive. The American Flag is a symbol of Freedom! Many men and women died to maintain this freedom, many more fought and still fight to keep this freedom, and you make us remove it??
