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."

Damned commie manager. It would be too ironic if he were killed by a Muslim jihadist.

Tell the manager and the Muslims to ‘stuff it’.

Too late.

We have been cuddling them since they arrived.

You think that by building them a mosque at taxpayer’s expense they will be nice to us?

I’m sick of people who are ashamed of this country. If I put up a flag, it stays. No bunch of bearded savages is going to tell me to take it down.

I don't know the political leanings of that station, but funny how they fail to give the background of American patriot “Duy Tran.”

His name is clearly Vietnamese and his photo is consistent with that. A google map check for Webster TX puts right the water near Galveston.

That happens to be where many Vietnamese refugees - who fought our Commie enemies with us - were relocated (after the Democrats defunded their army to guarantee our defeat).

Now the article doesn't give his age, but I'd bet either he and/or his parents were refugees back when we gave refuge to our friends and NOT to enemies & those who support our enemies (now Commies & Jihadis).

If the sons of pig f’n dogs are “threatened” by the flag then they must be by definition terrorists and not peaceful.

Each one who objects should be rounded up and put into a Gitmo interrogation cell.

New Yorkers didn’t learn anything from 911 did they! And they will not connect the dots when they get hit again.

Well ... I do have to admit that it IS A THREAT to the Islamists and Jihadists, but it’s supposed to be!

They do quote the following indicating he supports this
country for which his friends died for.

“I have friends that died for this country,” he said.

Since when has offending somebody become a “crime”?

I may just have to put an American bumper sticker on my car to offend the occasional illegal alien, muslim, or liberal that passes me by.

Doesn’t the “Freedom to Display the American Flag Act of 2005” stop the homeowners association from prohibiting the flag display?

If the American flag hung on an apartment balcony is a threat to the muslim community, then every display of the flag is also a threat - at schools, courthouses, most government buildings, & probably the customs & immigration office the muslims visited prior to entry to this country.

If they felt such a threat, why did they come here in the first place?

It's time we start turning these things back on the idiots.

Like, I feel threatened by women(?) in full length garb, which not only conceals identity, but could also conceal weapons & explosives.

No doubt the management & HOA board members have certain aspects of their lives that are a threat to others, since there many supposedly benign things that could be considered a threat to safety - a lawn mower, a child on a bicycle, a jogger with ear buds. Clever lawyers who can find fault with the Flag can also find fault in anything.

If they want to play the nitpick game, then let's focus the game on the nannies & neighborhood bullies. When was the last time the management passed a health & safety inspection?

Here’s the website to the cowardly apartment complex. http://lodgeeldorado.com/
This is right in my backyard, and I’ll be damned if I’m going to let this go without a fight. Webster is actually a suburb of Houston, it’s the gateway to the Johnson Space Center.

I emailed the cowards and told them that if the flag offends their beloved muslim savages, then said savages need to vacate this country.

Also, anyone else notice that the 9th century cave dwellers are nowhere to be found over the last couple of days? I wonder why that is?

We have a lot of Vietnamese here in Louisiana. Very patriotic and mostly conservative republicans.
