We’ve seen this over and over again. But keep in mind that when patriotism is banned we’ve reached the beginning of the end. Please, please, don’t think I’m exaggerating.
In North Carolina, a Homeowners Association (a trailer home association) has banned the flying of American flags. They want to ban all flags, which is probably understandable. But the American flag has special protections enacted by Congress and by many state legislatures. Banning American flags is on a par with banning any celebration of the 4th of July.
Multi-culturalism? I get it.
Diversity? I get it.
But any ‘government’ (and believe it, Homeowners Associations are governments) that begins banning displays of patriotism is on the road to destruction. Go back and look at dictators who killed millions and millions of people, Hitler, Stalin, Lenin, Idi Amin, Pol Pot, Chairman Mao: They all began by burning books, outlawing freedom of expression, and banning displays of religion and patriotism.
Our Constitution is an extremely thin thread that holds our country out of the hands of such monsters.
Our Constitution was written and enacted by some of the greatest heroes in history. If we allow the collapse of our Constitution, we will ultimately be regarded as the greatest cowards in history. When your HOA nibbles away at your Constitutional rights, stand up and show your testosterone! Use it or lose it.
