This happened in the city I live in. I really can't even fathom why someone even has a nazi flag to fly in the first place. It is amazing how people react when Obama does anything. I just thought it would be worth mentioning here. Hope I'm in the right forum.

I gotta admire the kid having the balls to go up to the door and try and confront them.



The homeowner told 13News Now he flew the flag in protest of President Barack Obama after the president's address Thursday night announcing his executive action on immigration reform.

Whatever happened to yelling at the tv for a minute or two then stepping out back for some fresh air and a beer to cool off? I don't get the connection, I think he was just being a jerk.

I think he is doing the wrong thing for the right reason. We should all be distressed when any President circumvents the Constitutional separation of power and ignores our elected representation. That being said the NAZI flag is effective in getting him the attention to the distress that many in our country are feeling. Certainly there are other less offensive ways to show how upset we are with our new 'king', but I do support the sentiment.

I don't believe he meant to be a jerk as much as he wanted people to feel his pain at being disenfranchised by the man in the White House. Many people see Obama attacking our Constitution and freedom with his latest action and this man just wanted to be 'heard'. It seems to be very effective if not offensive.

I guess we should have been equally pissed when Reagan, Clinton, bush 1 and bush 2 did the same, for starters.

Yeah, I just wonder what kind of person has a nazi flag hanging around the house just for such occasion? Though he wouldn't speak to the media though, like how could he not see that this kind of thing would cause the attention of the local media? Please. I would have thought they would have jumped at the chance to get on their soapbox if they were going to go ahead and do all that.

There is a big difference between using EOs to declare holidays and circumventing Congress on a major contentious issue. You are either being disingenuous or obtuse. Which is it?

Glad I live in a country which has forbidden that crap, there`s no need to have that kind of freedom.

I also find it odd for someone who is against a totalitarian dictatorship, just happens to have a nazi flag sitting around the house.

As much as I support his freedom to do what he wants on his property I don't think hanging a swastika (at least with Nazi connotations) is the best way to express his feelings about this situation.

It's surprisingly not hard to find that kind of stuff. Some punk sites sell nazi merch to the rebellious youngsters who think they're being obnoxious or racist lol.

With her cell phone, Beth Brooker recorded an exchange with a woman seen helping the homeowner remove the flag.


hehehe, "helping" the homeowner remove the flag, hehehe

I`m not ripping your flag down and shoving it up your ass buddy, I`m "helping" you remove it.

I have to agree though, how many people just happen to have a spare Natzi flag laying around their home just waiting for an appropriate occasion to fly it?

In general we have more freedom, it`s just what kinds of freedom you prefer.

Well, this is kind of counter productive. I mean, Hitler was really huge on amnesty for people...

he has his free speech, nothing happened to it. people has the free speech to criticize him flying a Nazi flag, he wasn't put in jail or shot....you created an argument when there isn't one.

"It is amazing how people react when Obama does anything."

Perhaps because Obama takes his lesson from the NAZI play book?

Peace
