Woman Faces Fines And Eviction For Waving American Flag, Until THIS Group Heard About It…

Never forget what we are fighting for.

The latest outrage from the People’s Republic of California is sure to incite anger and outrage. It is not enough that liberals are dishonoring our institutions by imposing multicultural laws that are tearing at the fabric of our nation or refusing to fly the flag at universities for fear of offending some confused youth.

Straight off the controversy from early when a Massachusetts university took down our beloved Star-Spangled Banner stating that it offended some miscreants, the liberal elite wanted to expand on that attack on our symbol of the nation. It was not another stand by spoiled college kids or some order of some looney left-wing Governor (though being California with Governor Jerry Brown, you never know), or some misguided protesters attempting to hamper America’s energy independence. No, they feel it is necessary to attack mom and the flag on the Homefront.

The wife of a Camp Pendleton Marine received a letter from her homeowner’s association telling her to remove her American flag. Heather Valenti told San Diego’s local ABC affiliate, 10 News, how it made her feel. “They are hurting people like me and my husband,” said Heather Valenti.

She said the letter from her HOA that demanded she take the flag down “sounded pretty threatening.” According to the letter, Valenti’s flag violated the rules for common areas. Valenti said the small flag had a big meaning to her and her family. It is a flag that honors her husband, who is deployed, and her Marine grandfather, who recently died.

It read in part:

“In keeping with good management practices, the following requires your immediate attention: During a recent property inspection, a flag was noted in the Common Area landscaping at your unit, which is a violation of the Association CC&R’s. Page 6 of the Rules and Regulations states: ‘No property may be left or stored in the Common Area outside any residence.’ Please remove the flag from the Common Area landscaping immediately. Failure to comply will result in further action by the Board of Directors.”

“I just watched a flag being folded at my grandfather’s funeral and handed to my grandmother by the Marines. It hits home,” Valenti told 10News. Valenti said she believes the country is in crisis. Scenes of flags being burned hurt her. “Unfortunately, we live in a country where people are burning flags, disrespecting flags,” she said.

Valenti was not about to let this battle over her flag go, even though her husband did not want to make a fuss. “He’s over there serving our country and his response was just, ‘Whatever, just take it down. We’ll get an American flag doormat instead.’ I said no,” said Valenti.  The good news is that when a local group — San Diegans for Secure Borders — heard about Heather’s situation, they took action to defend her right to display her flag.

 

After Valenti moved her flag less than a foot, the HOA gave in.

After Valenti moved her flag less than a foot, the HOA gave in.

The group’s leader, Jeff Schwilk, cited the Freedom to Display the American Flag Act of 2005, which he says guarantees that “HOAs cannot keep homeowners from (reasonably) displaying American flags outside their homes and condos.

“We also promised the HOA a huge flag rally/protest outside their condo complex — with big media coverage—if they hassle her or anyone else that lives there ever again about their American flags.”

Heather said she’d felt targeted by the HOA since several of her neighbors had flags similarly displayed. Moving the flag less than a foot seemed to satisfy whatever mysterious criteria were used to justify the HOA’s objection to her flag in the first place. After Valenti moved her flag less than a foot, the HOA gave in.

“At the end of the day, I won. I’m able to keep my flag up, and that’s all I wanted,” Valenti said. 10News reached out to Curtis Management Company, who oversees the HOA, but they have not responded as of early Friday evening. Which is not really surprising, since these days’ corporations love to attack ordinary hard-working Americans when there is no chance of reprisal. Like most bullies, corporate America cowers when confronted on their strong hand tactics.

This is not a battle that will be cleansed from our great nation overnight. Even though January 20th will usher in a new age of American Politics when ‘we the people’ retook the nation of our birth and our Founding Fathers, it will be a slow uphill fight. The communist element that is the modern leftist movement of George Soros in America will not disappear so quickly. We must remain vigilant and strong.

I am stuck thinking about a brave Marine on a foreign shore, fighting for his country and all that is stands for, needing his head in the game for the benefit of himself and his brothers in arms.

However, he cannot.  His mind is thousands of miles away, with his wife as she attempts to show her love of country, love of her family and pride; but being told that such things are not what her neighborhood stands for. This HOA endangered his life and his buddies in a war zone just to stomp on the very symbol of liberty he was fighting for.

We must stand against this tyranny. In this day and age we are of course, made to feel helpless by the onslaught of Anti-American Leftist Extremism and their Corporate masters, but we can and must stand.  Breitbart has shown with their boycott of Kellogg’s, the veterans that stood for the flag in Massachusetts, and all the other daily events not reported of Americans taking a stand in a country that is slowly returning to their control that we can retake what is ours.

Together we kept another four years of corrupt government from the White House even though the mainstream media spoke daily of the ‘sure thing’ victory of Hillary Rodham Clinton.  We stood as one and won the day.

Together, we have won in the face of overwhelming odds from Lexington to Midway, from Pusan to Baghdad. We all have it in us to be a warrior for the Republic. I applaud San Diegans for Secure Borders and all similar groups in America for keeping the fire of liberty lit.

Keep it flying high, my fellow Americans.
