According to the “Stars and Stripes” the city of Statesville N.C. is suing an outdoor living equipment dealer, Gander RV, because they claim the 40foot by 80 foot Flag is too large.
The city is “imposing” a $50 per day retroactive fine, dating back to Oct 15, 2018. That’s when the flag went up, the store says. Officials claim the U.S. Flag is nearly twice the size of specification in city codes for “signs and other outdoor marketing devices”. The owners of the establishment posted on their website,
“Many cities like Statesville have requested that Camping World and Gander Outdoors take down their American Flags,” “This involves more than the flag itself and say “WE WON’T DO IT” Stand with us.
This is about our Veterans, Military and the men and women that have sacrificed for this great country. They are the reason we fly the flag and they are the reason we will NOT take it down??
The American flag fly’s freely by the breath of every fallen American hero.
The morals and ethics of the city officials of this N.C. city are being questioned and debated that the city should change it’s ridiculous ordinance.
Marcus Lemonis CEO of Camping World (Gander RV) owner of over 200 across the country, states none of his other stores have had this issue, all adorning the same flag on their property which is not obstructing anything but the political view point of non patriots, the American patriots who either live in NC or are passers by from the view off I-77.
Maybe that’s the problem, this beautiful flag is a symbol and constant reminder of American freedom and just maybe the American people in the city of Statesville NC should sue those anti Americans trying to enforce and capitalize off of this most offensive act.
Camping World states “The flag is a symbol that represents this country” while members of the Statesville Council say the matter has nothing to do with Patriotism.”
Well opinions do matter and this NC Council is among the minority, have they no moral compass to realize this very flags stars, stripes and colors drapes the caskets of our fallen military sons and daughters as they return home to their final resting place to their Gold Star families one last time, have they forgotten that this very flag represents American hope at it’s finest as we salute it with out right hand covering our hearts and this very flag our troops insure rises in the morning and sets in the evening with pride and honor, is now finding its way under attack.
It is important that all Americans celebrate and honor the lives of those who are now a part of history⏤our fallen American heroes⏤who will NEVER be forgotten as they define the very fabric of America⏤this is the essence of Memorial Day. All across the nation we will celebrate this day filled with special tributes, parades, and services to honor and recognize those souls who have given up their today so we could have tomorrow.
