Texas: Man told to take down his US flag, as itís ďa threat towards the Muslim communityĒ
Jihad Watch ^

It’s a time-honored principle: when in Muslim countries, you must conform your behavior to Muslim sensibilities. And when in non-Muslim countries, you must conform your behavior to Muslim sensibilities. This is the kind of thing that only happens in nations that have lost their confidence and their way, are vulnerable to any action of their enemies, and in imminent danger of destruction.

“Man says apartment complex called his US flag a ‘threat to Muslim community,’” by Alice Barr, KHOU 11 News, June 18, 2014 (thanks to Robert):

WEBSTER, Texas — A Webster man says his apartment complex manager told him his American flag was a “threat to the Muslim community,” and that he has to take it down. But he’s not giving up without a fight.

Stepping onto Duy Tran’s balcony in Webster, one thing is clear: “It means a lot to me,” he said.

He’s talking about his American flag that he proudly put up when he moved in just a few days ago. But then an apartment manager at the Lodge on El Dorado told him he had to take it down.

“What really stunned me is that she said it’s a threat towards the Muslim community,” said Tran. “I’m not a threat toward anybody.”

We tried to ask a manager if that’s exactly what was said, but she just handed us a statement, refused to answer any questions, and called an officer to escort us off the property, before we could press any further:

If the American flag is offensive to them, shouldn’t they be in a different country?

Of course. Same thing happens in the schools and everywhere else where some PC drone tries to get rid of a flag or a patriotic shirt or a picture of a gun, etc. They have no rationale that they'd be willing to defend in public.

LEGAL immigrants are some of the patriotic Americans we have. Texas is lucky to have Mr. Tran. God bless him!

“Man says apartment complex called his US flag a ‘threat to Muslim community,’”

muslims, as a group, HAVE to be the biggest pu$$ie$ in the history of the world. All I ever hear about is ow they are "offended" at every turn. All their big bad jihadists wear masks to conceal their identity. They change their names, so people can't tell who they were before going crazy. The list goes on.

Oh Geez Louise, I thought all muzzies in America were “All-American Muslims” just like the failed reality show.

Why, just google “Hijabi Muslimahs waving American flags!” & see what comes up.

More PC tyranny by petty tyrants. “Called an officer to escort us off the property”.....the b!tch wishes she could call the KGB!

Disgusting................

Why doesn’t this stuff ever happen to me?

I have answers for these idiotic statements.

“Mam, these muslims are a threat to America, and you and I have no obligation to accommodate them.”

And that is just my initial civilized response.

I think the better perspective is that the muslim community is a threat to the flag.

I hope Hombeland Security is keeping a close eye on this “manager”. Hopefully somebody has done a real good background check on her also.

Maybe I missed it, but are we not still at WAR with “the radical Muslim Community?”

Yep, that’s how I feel. I was really hoping some Black Panthers would try and intimidate me when I went to vote last time.

That’s true, but I’ve worked with MANY people from Europe, Russia, India, and Asia who think the socialism/fascism of the old country is better to what they are experiencing here. Even with all the jackboots on our freedom the last six years, they are still bewildered by too much choice and too much personal responsibility. That is always deeply dismaying to me.

If she would have told Tran his lease states no objects or banners from the balcony is one thing, but telling him it's offensive to muslims it outrageous!

Not too far from my work.
