UPDATE 6/11/06:

UPDATE--PROTEST RALLY to fly American Flags on FLAG DAY - San Bernardino

FReepers--

Next Wednesday, June 14 is FLAG DAY.

I am FURIOUS!

The City of San Bernardino has voted to NOT DISPLAY a large AMERICAN FLAG previously flown at City Hall, on national holidays since it might offend somebody. It took two votes--the final one was 4 to 3.

At issue is not the small U.S. flag normally flown but the big one that has been previously flown at City Hall.

Four City Council Members have refused to permit the large flag to be flown on patriotic National Holidays, for fear of 'offending' someone.

We want that large American Flag again flown PROUDLY, on America's National Holidays!

Along with others, I am organizing a rally at San Bernardino City Hall for Wednesday beginning at 3pm.

WITH AMERICAN FLAGS.

If you are within driving distance of San Bernardino--please plan to be there.

If you can forward this info to someone in the area, please do so.

If you can HELP me and others, we want Boy Scouts, Military, Teachers, everybody there with flags. Peacefully.

I will add further information to this thread and ping those who reply. I am off to meetings and will add more information and replies later.

Posted below is a color flyer you can print, email or post. Please get this to as many people as possible.

Wherever you live, this kind of attitude is heading your way among career politicians and we MUST nip it in the bud now.

Thanks!

For God and Country,

Lyman

Here is the City Council page--it does not show vote details.

I understand there was an article in the San Bernardino Sun newspaper about the vote but I did not find it in the online version.

Official Meeting Minutes including the roll call vote is not online-only available hardcopy at the City Clerk's meetings.

Here is a Summary of the vote:

In the Right Column for May 15 is a link to a PDF file. Item 43 records the motion as having failed.

Here is the exact text from that PDF:

43.

Display of U.S. Flag on Memorial Day, Flag Day and Fourth of July. (See Attached)

Failed

MOTION: That the Facilities Department be directed to display the 22’x30’ U.S. Flag on Memorial Day, Flag Day and on Fourth of July.

This recently happened in Britain, but i didn't expect it here. It's sad when a city won't fly the flag on a national holiday for fear of offending those who aren't even here legally.

I wish I could go to that rally. But I live in Texas and cannot travel. Please send this information to Bill O'Reilly. I don't care for him that much but he does seem to jump on an issue and run with it. I think this will be one of thse issues for him. I will e-mail him also but it will carry more weight from someone who lives in California.

We Confederate Flag defenders tried to warn people that the CBF was only the first step in the Leftist campaign against American Flags and traditions and that "Old Glory" would be next. Too bad few people paid us any attention when we could have nipped this crap in the bud.
Hopefully it's not too late.

No freakin' way! How could those jokers have voted against the flag? This is America and, by golly, we have every right to fly Old Glory. Sounds like they need to be excused from their seats IMMEDIATELY. You should get a petition started to remove them. Call the radio and tv stations and get them out there Wednesday and have them give out US flags.

I'm serious. Get the media out there. They'll have it splashed all over the air waves and have them name the members who voted against the flag.

Godspeed and best of luck in your campaign to remind these weak-spined wimps or worse, what it means to be patriotic. Hope they realize by your actions that there are plenty of citizens out there who still are patriots. Wish I could join you.

No, the citizens should storm city council and forcibly remove them. It's time to take back our country.

You can see the vote item on the City Council agenda, I think it's item #43, go to the link in the story.

Actual minutes are not online, apparently only hardcopy at City Clerk's office. I will seek to get copies and post them when I deliver a letter to council members tomorrow.

I'm off to meet with some people on this now, back in a while.

Since i live in the NE and can't be there, I'll try to help by repeating what mtbopfuyn said, above. It's a fabulous idea.

Much luck, and I'll be praying for your success.

Go to this website and listen to Red Skelton's recitation of the Plegde of Allegiance. Especially listen to the very last line, listen to how insightful this man was back in 1969.

"NOT DISPLAY AMERICAN FLAGS on national holidays since it might offend somebody"

This has to be one of the more outrageous, pathetic things I've heard yet from the leftist local governments in California. I really think we should go ahead and give away the worthless state to Mexico, or maybe it will fall off into the ocean. It isn't worthy of our great nation. California is like a pimple on the face of a supermodel in relation to our country.

"This recently happened in Britain..."

Only a coupleof years ago the (CA) city of Glendale forced a gas station owner to remove his american flags because there were 'too many' and were offensive to 'others'.

As I remember it, the station owner was an Armenian immigrant himself, but no matter to the mayor and coucil.
