When will these people stop this flag flapping because they will be a loser in every instance. This is America and the flag is all about America which was founded on Judeo-Christian values and the Constitution. When these people come in and make noise – we need to take a stand and drown them out. Remember the Pilgrims – there was not one single Muslim sitting at that Thanksgiving table. And if anyone should be complaining it should be the American Indians. If anyone doesn’t like it – the Constitution guarantees you a “safe way out.” In fact, free tickets are always available by the government.
A Judge BANNED the American Flag… Then, This Sheriff Took ACTION! Every court in this country has American flags in the court house – so what is the beef? Isn’t it called the American Judicial System?
Sheriff Bill Watson of Portsmouth, Virginia was outraged after a judge informed him and his office that they couldn’t hang an American flag display in the Portsmouth County courthouse lobby. This special and handsome flag in a frame was donated by a group of firefighters and they wanted to show it off.
Not only is it an American flag, but it’s made from old fire hoses and includes a sign which says, “A Tribute to Public Safety.
Sheriff Watson said his request to have it mounted on a wall in the courthouse lobby was immediately denied. This is outrageous!
“Not only do we not want it on the wall, we don’t want it in the courthouse,” the sheriff said he was told.
Sheriff Watson called the decision “the most asinine thing” he’s ever heard in his life.
“They expect my deputies to put their life on the line for a judge,” he told the CBS affiliate. “If somebody was going to come into a courtroom with a gun, the deputy is supposed to stand in front of the judge and take a bullet, but yet they won’t let us have our flag, saluting public safety? To me, that’s a slap in the face.”
A judge, who did not was [wish] to be identified, told the news station that the decision was made because officials don’t want any display or memorial of its kind positioned in the lobby when people walk into the courthouse.
“The judge said if you allow one type of display, then you will have to allow all types,” the station reported. “The judge said having the display in the lobby sets the wrong precedent.”
Of course the Judge didn’t want to be identified. And why not? He should be? The yellow bellies need to be pointed out. How could an honest and fair judge also hate the American flag? It represents the freedoms and liberty which the law upholds, and should be proudly displayed in every courtroom. This is America!
Finally, after the Sheriff fought back, the Judge gave into his request and the flag now hangs in the courtroom. Thanks to the Sheriff’s efforts and public pressure, local residents can see this beautifully made, hand-crafted flag.
Most of us have forgotten the words of famous Chief Justice John Marshall, “… the second maker of the Constitution,” wisely stated: “… between a balanced republic and a democracy, the difference is like that between order and chaos.” The chaos we suffer under Obama and the democratic party is evidence enough that we have fallen into despotism – a democracy.
