According to the “Stars and Stripes” the city of Statesville N.C. is suing an outdoor living equipment dealer, Gander RV, because they claim the 40foot by 80 foot Flag is too large.
The city is “imposing” a $50 per day retroactive fine, dating back to Oct 15, 2018. That’s when the flag went up, the store says. Officials claim the U.S. Flag is nearly twice the size of specification in city codes for “signs and other outdoor marketing devices”. The owners of the establishment posted on their website,
“Many cities like Statesville have requested that Camping World and Gander Outdoors take down their American Flags,” “This involves more than the flag itself and say “WE WON’T DO IT” Stand with us.
This is about our Veterans, Military and the men and women that have sacrificed for this great country. They are the reason we fly the flag and they are the reason we will NOT take it down??
The American flag fly’s freely by the breath of every fallen American hero.
The morals and ethics of the city officials of this N.C. city are being questioned and debated that the city should change it’s ridiculous ordinance.
Marcus Lemonis CEO of Camping World (Gander RV) owner of over 200 across the country, states none of his other stores have had this issue, all adorning the same flag on their property which is not obstructing anything but the political view point of non patriots, the American patriots who either live in NC or are passers by from the view off I-77.
Maybe that’s the problem, this beautiful flag is a symbol and constant reminder of American freedom and just maybe the American people in the city of Statesville NC should sue those anti Americans trying to enforce and capitalize off of this most offensive act.
Camping World states “The flag is a symbol that represents this country” while members of the Statesville Council say the matter has nothing to do with Patriotism.”
Well opinions do matter and this NC Council is among the minority, have they no moral compass to realize this very flags stars, stripes and colors drapes the caskets of our fallen military sons and daughters as they return home to their final resting place to their Gold Star families one last time, have they forgotten that this very flag represents American hope at it’s finest as we salute it with out right hand covering our hearts and this very flag our troops insure rises in the morning and sets in the evening with pride and honor, is now finding its way under attack.
It is important that all Americans celebrate and honor the lives of those who are now a part of history⏤our fallen American heroes⏤who will NEVER be forgotten as they define the very fabric of America⏤this is the essence of Memorial Day. All across the nation we will celebrate this day filled with special tributes, parades, and services to honor and recognize those souls who have given up their today so we could have tomorrow.
This is a very hopeful year because President Trump is pardoning a handful of our most valorous warriors who were imprisoned during the rogue administration of #44, all for doing their jobs as warriors on the battlefield.
This will be a year like no other as our POTUS is cleaning up the criminality and remnants of prior administrations who have ambushed our rule of law and punished Americans simply for being Americans,
Yet, throughout various pockets of America, there has grown a foreign mindset, over the past decades, challenging the very laws that created us.
It is these forces who have weaponized and politicized every facet of our American lifestyles, while enforcing one obtuse regulation after another.
If that’s not enough, they strategically place themselves within the bosom of America’s home towns where once conservatism and the family units were held sacred they make a mockery out of God and the American Flag, and any symbol that holds light and justice.
Many a tear will be shed by myself and fellow man, as we remember the spirits of our once cradled sons and daughters who sacrificed life and limb to insure we secure a uniquely free country and beacon of light on a global scale, which our American flag is a symbol of this promise.
Camping World has taken a stand for freedom after city fines $11,000 for flying the American flag honoring our Veterans, active Military and the Fallen American Heroes.
God Bless America and all who have fought to preserve our rights and privileges. Never will we forget your sacrifices, Always will we be vigilant in your absence.
“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected and handed on for them to do the same.” – Ronald Reagan
