An Oregon apartment complex is banning its residents from flying American flags, not only from their dwellings but also their vehicles, KATU in Portland reported.....
Sharron White, a long-time resident, was told by management to take down the flag she's flown on her car for eight years because "someone might get offended."

Old news posted many times and has been resolved.
The news last night said this rule has been reversed.
How could the American flag offend any American citizen? Perhaps we are worried about offending terrorists? Illegals?
i suppose i should have looked further into into it before i posted. however the trampling of free speech is rather annoying.
thank goodness the ban has been lifted and the flag can fly now at The Oaks apartment complex. I liked the comment by one of the folks who offered to help those who were offended by the American flag to pack their bags and get ‘em out of the country. If they’re so offended by what the American flag represents, then they don’t need to visit here, work here, live here, prosper here. Let ‘em go back to the hellholes they claim as their country of origin.
KVAL News also contacted the American Civil Liberties Union to ask whether the policy banning flags from the apartment complex violated any laws. The answer from the ACLU: No.
Thus speaks Ruth Buzzi Ginzburg and friends.
Did they ban the rainbow flag also?
But Holcomb said she received different legal counsel that led her to believe she is wrong to ban the flags."
Liberal Translation: The ACLU does not think it is a violation of the civil rights of a patriotic American citizen who is prevented from flying Old Glory. However, it is a Hate Crime to ban the Flags of other nations, especially those who hate the USA and harbor terrorists.
Thank you ACLU. I got it now!
That isn't now or ever was a valid reason for such a request. Keep flying the flag and then file a complaint when one of the condo Nazis attempts to remove it.
Well, the Nuremberg Race Laws have been resolved too. No need to bring ‘em up ever again. Nope.
It should never have happened in the first place, and is probably still happening elsewhere.

While this story is about a rental complex there are plenty of Home Owner Associations run by the local nut case - both in red and blue states.
Too many people take no interest in who is running their HOA until bizzaro stuff starts happening.
What if I feel offended by this request?
Nah, probably the tourists.
My point is that if it’s a day old story chances are it would have been posted a number of times on FR.
The front page of the News/Activism page holds about 50 stories. Right before I made this post there was two stories about how 3 of the 5 on the NPP committie were against giving it to Obama.
Look for that story to be posted about once every half hour for the next 8 hours or so.
If people would read first and then post there would be fewer posts to wade through.
All of the above is just my opinion.
Yeah, we wouldn’t want people who come to America to actually feel like they are in America.
