The assault on America continues unabated, however not from enemies abroad, but from those within our country. Who for whatever reason view America’s symbol “our flag” as something to be ashamed of, perhaps even hidden away.
This latest assault on “old glory” is once again from a homeowners association, towards a Minnesota mother of two U.S. service members who was recently told by her condo’s association that she needed to remove the American flag flying outside of her home.
Angie Hildebrandt claims that the Southdale Gardens Condominium Association told her that the flag violated its policy on exterior displays. The rules do mention “hanging garments” and other items, but do not specifically mention flags.
Hildebrandt has been using the Freedom to Display The American Flag Act of 2005 in her defense, and the local community has quickly rallied around her.
However not everyone supports Hildebrandt, as demonstrated by the vile vandalism to “old glory when she noticed her flag had been “shredded.”
“It was rather disheartening that someone would be so disrespectful to this flag that so many have fought and died for,” she told reporters.
Hildebrandt has a son in the Army and another in the Marine Corps, and claims that she has flown the flag everywhere she has lived previously without a problem.
