Apartment Complex Lifts Ban on Old Glory

The squeaky wheel really does get the grease. After the public reacted with outrage, an apartment complex has lifted its ban on Old Glory:

ALBANY, Ore. — Flags are OK again at an Albany apartment complex after the property manager reviewed the policy and decided she didn’t have the legal standing to ban flags from the exteriors of apartments and vehicles parked at the complex.

“If people want to fly any flag of any nationality, it’s their right,” said Barb Holcomb with Oaks Apartments.

KVAL News also contacted the American Civil Liberties Union to ask whether the policy banning flags from the apartment complex violated any laws. The answer from the ACLU: No.

But Holcomb said she received different legal counsel that led her to believe she is wrong to ban the flags.

More likely, she got sick of enraged countermoonbats burning up her phone line. Of the resident who originally took the story to the local media, Holcomb says,

He’s just a romping, stomping patriot.

Keep romping and stomping, patriots. It works. Likewise, the 45-day reform school sentence to punish a 6-year-old for having a Cub Scout knife was scaled back to a 3–5-day suspension when the public let its displeasure be known. We surround the petty tyrants who eat away at our liberties. If we push them hard enough, they will step back.
