Town Warns About Displaying American Flags – What Business Does Instead Has Them Regretting Their Rule

Published

on

A Chelmsford business was ordered by local government officials to remove 200 American flags placed on its property in an effort to honor America’s veterans for Memorial Day. The very last thing the business owners expected was demands for their removal.

Laer Realty places the display of 200 flags every year around Memorial Day and leaves them up through Independence Day on July 4. However, this is the first year they have received a complaint. Employee Jon Crandall says the last thing they expected when the display went up this year was the unpatriotic notice from the town’s building department citing them for a flag violation for excessive flags and a demand that they take them down.

Crandall stated: “On Saturday we came out and we lined this with 200 flags in support of our deceased veterans and all the people who have served. This is excessive?” the sales broker asked, pointing to the hundreds of American flags planted in the ground. “Can you have an excessive amount of American flags?”

That’s what the town told the local business, which places flags at the side of the busy intersection each year from Memorial Day to the Fourth of July.

When he reported for work on Friday as normal, Crandall states there was a sign bylaw violation notice posted to the door threatening the business with a violation by the town which cited a statute saying flags cannot be used for “commercial promotion.”

Building Commissioner Mark Dupell wrote on the notice: “Excessive flags — you may display a reasonable amount.”

Michael McCall, Chelmsford’s Assistant Town Manager, stated of the citation – “This is a commercial establishment located at a busy intersection. It was in the front lawn of that particular property, and in the opinion of our code enforcement officer, the building commissioner, it was a violation.”

Rather than remove the American flags per the demand from town officials, Laer Realty doubled down on their patriotic display adding an additional 300 flags to the display with the plan to leave them up through Independence Day as per their normal practice.

“That seems so anti-American,” Crandall said about the town’s notice. Crandall stated of their act of civil disobedience: “We feel this is a patriotic act. It’s not about our business. It’s about supporting our troops, supporting veterans. I think the flags speak for themselves. I don’t think we need to get into a fight with city hall. We’re gonna keep adding now,” he stated, as realtors gathered together to place more flags down.

Before receiving the notice violation, they had planted about 200 American flags, Crandall estimated. By the end of Friday morning, about 400 American flags were in front of the business.

“Now we’re doubling down on patriotism,” Crandall said. Stacey Alcorn, Laer Realty’s CEO, decided to “dig our heels in” when she heard of the town’s order.

Faith Murphy, an agent at LAER, called the town’s response “insulting.”

“Of all things to call excessive, an American flag is not the one,” she said. “This is just showing we’re patriotic and we’re one.”

Not only did the town of Chelmsford and its government officials get a defiant response from Laer Realty, it seems many of the town residents agreed with Laer Realty’s rebellious act and began showing their support by adding flags of their own tripling the original amount.

The town government not only got a defiant response from Laer Reality, but residents showed their support by adding flags of their own, tripling the original amount. Emelie Primeau was one of the residents who was upset by the citation, stating – “I went to the store and I bought some flags because I believe in what they’re doing.”

Crandall stated on Fox & Friends on Sunday: “It was beautiful, but it certainly was not excessive. I don’t think you could have 2,000 out there and it would look excessive.”

Alcorn pointed out how the display has “grown significantly” because of the community coming out to support the message they are sending. She stated – “This had nothing to do with our business. It was us as a community just honoring our veterans and those who serve for us. Whether they fine or don’t fine us, those flags are staying up, at least through Flag Day and the Fourth of July.”

The Lowell Sun reports of the town official’s response to this act of defiance, stating:

“Chelmsford Town Manager Paul Cohen said the building commissioner’s job is to enforce the code of the community voted by Town Meeting, and that’s exactly what he did in this situation, according to Cohen. It appears that all those American flags is an excessive amount, violating the town zoning bylaw, he said.

A town zoning bylaw addresses the use of flags with commercial promotion, the town manager said.

‘When you blanket the whole front of a property, that would be considered a commercial promotion, and flags are not to be displayed in connection with commercial promotion,’ Cohen said.

The hundreds of flags could be distracting at the busy intersection, he added.

‘It becomes a safety concern at that tough intersection,’ Cohen said.

The town didn’t request that the business remove all the flags, but to reduce it to an appropriate number, according to the town manager.

“We’re not anti-American flag. That’s not what this is about,” Cohen said. “It’s about the commercial promotion and safety distraction at a busy intersection.”

White House Guests KNEEL During National Anthem, Trump Makes Them Immediately Regret It

The Marine Corp band in their bright red uniforms were on the south balcony of the White House on a bright, sunny Tuesday in Washington, DC. The Army Chorus sang, beginning the event with ‘America the Beautiful’ and concluded with ‘God Bless America’. At least two people who were guests at President Trump’s Celebration of America event yesterday knelt, showing exactly why so many Americans are ticked over the National Anthem controversy.

The event replaced a celebration at the White House in honor of the Super Bowl win for the Philadelphia Eagles. These two disrespectful idiots took a knee as the “Star Spangled Banner” rang out across the South Lawn of the White House. Simply disgraceful. These aren’t social justice warriors… these are unpatriotic jerks.

A video was posted to Twitter by a reporter for SVT, the Swedish national public TV broadcaster. It shows a man, wearing a light blue button down, kneeling as the National Anthem played, before clapping and ultimately coming to his feet after the song finished. I guess he thought that was his five minutes of fame or something.

What it really amounted to was making a fool out of himself internationally. President Trump showcases all of these liberal dimwits for what they are… America-hating, radical leftists who are far more interested in hating our brave police officers and our country than they are in respecting America and taking national pride in their country and President.

When President Trump took the podium, he blew his audience away with his love for our country, military, police, flag and the National Anthem. He made every single person who disrespects them like this look like the small, craven liberals that they really are. The man, who did not identify himself, left the event immediately after the United States Marine Band performed the anthem, according to a news anchor for TV2 Denmark. Gee, crawling away with his tail between his legs like the lowly cur he his. Guess he couldn’t stand patriotism after he showed how much he hates his own country.

There was a second man who was pictured kneeling as well. That was posted to Twitter by a CNN White House producer. He was wearing a light blue checkered shirt and had a little American flag. This guy was right up front. He was also apparently the same person who reportedly heckled Trump. That guy was roundly booed by everyone around him. CNN’s analyst April Ryan posted false news on Twitter yesterday claiming people were booing Trump when it was the heckler they went after. She eventually retracted what she said after her own colleagues called her out on the lie. “Stop hiding behind the armed services and the National Anthem,” the guy yelled to a chorus of boos, according to the Daily Mail. “Let’s hear it for the Eagles.” “Go home,” one person shouted at the heckler.

The President didn’t engage the heckler, but looked in his direction and pursed his lips. He looked like he wanted to smack him. Right there with ya.

President Trump disinvited the Philadelphia Eagles to the White House after they at first said they had more than 70 players coming to the People’s House to celebrate. By this week, that number had dropped to less than ten and then to only one player. They kept trying to change the date to one where President Trump would be out of the country. I don’t blame the President in the least for canceling the visit. That was totally appropriate. If you insist on being ungrateful and insulting a sitting President of the United States, then you don’t deserve the honor of going to the White House period.

Trump claimed on Monday that the team disagreed “with their President because he insists that they proudly stand for the National Anthem, hand on heart, in honor of the great men and women of our military and the people of our country.” Eagles players denied that accusation, pointing out that no one on the team knelt for the anthem during last season. But that has nothing to do with how each individual on the team states his beliefs and shows his disrespect for President Trump.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders accused the team of a “political stunt” just minutes before Tuesday’s alternative event began, claiming the players had chosen to “abandon their fans.” That’s exactly what they did. “If this wasn’t a political stunt by the Eagles franchise then they wouldn’t have committed to attend the event and then backed out,” she said in her Tuesday press briefing. “And if it wasn’t a political stunt, they wouldn’t have attempted to reschedule the visit while the President was overseas.”

Trump was brief in his remarks and only spoke for about four minutes. He began by explaining why it’s an issue of patriotism for Americans to stand for the National Anthem. “We love our flag and stand for our National Anthem,” Trump said to great applause from the crowd on the South Lawn of the White House. “We stand to honor our military and to honor country and to honor the fallen heroes who never made it back home.” Yes, we do… and those that don’t can take a hike.

Melania Unveils This Year’s White House Christmas Decorations That Libs Are SURE To Hate

Melania Trump’s first year in office was marked by immense criticism of our incredible first lady, who in the eyes of the Trump family’s numerous detractors, Melania could do nothing right, or at least as well as her predecessor, Michelle Obama. This included her full Christmas decor plan, which was stunning in silver and white, and a beautiful modern take on the same tired style that Michelle un-creatively came up with.

This year’s decorations will likely be no different, if not worse.

Last year, liberals claimed she decked the halls in depression and gloom, likening it to looking more like a haunted house than a holiday home. So, what will they say about this year’s new look?

Chicks On The Right reports:

FLOTUS doesn’t just slay on the fashion front. Her decorating skills are off the charts. (Yes, yes– I know she didn’t do this by herself, but if you really believe she didn’t have a say, you’re nuuuuuuuuuuuuts.)

ANYWHO. She finally unveiled this year’s White House Christmas decorations, and they’re GORGEOUS.

You have no idea how much I want to stroll through those halls of beautifully decorated trees. Oh well. I’ll have to settle for the aisles of Hobby Lobby.

It all looks great. I’m obsessed. TY, that is all.
