California Man Told To Take Down American Flag INSIDE Apartment In Order to Renew Lease
It’s an Obama America:
A Santee man said he was told he could not display the American flag inside his apartment window, but management will not tell him why.
Steve Roberts is a proud to be an American. His father served in the military for more than 25 years.
“The American flag, it means to me freedom,” Roberts told 10News.
A year ago, Roberts bought an American flag and hung it across his front window, inside his apartment at The Oaks in Santee.
Roberts showed 10News a copy of his lease, which states, “No decorations, signs, or lettering may be exhibited or fixed outside of the resident’s apartment.” Robert’s flag is hanging inside of his apartment and can only be seen if he cracks open his blinds.
“I didn’t think I would have a problem. None of my neighbors have complained to me, and I asked the previous management for approval,” said Roberts.
Problems began in April when the management company for The Oaks changed hands.
“Apparently, the FDC management group doesn’t like me flying the American flag or displaying it. When I went to renew my lease in April, I was told by the lady in the leasing office that the district manager told them if I took down the flag they would renew my lease; until then I could only be month to month,” said Roberts.
No one complained.
No one living there has a problem with it.
And it’s inside his apartment.
What’s the problem?
Political correctness. : Someone in management is afraid of offending someone.
The fact the American flag is a sacrifice to political correctness shows you the danger inherit in it.
