This week, the Wrentham Housing Authority in Wrentham, Massachusetts, banned the open display of the American flag.

They claim it was a "mistake"

What a whopper !!!

WRENTHAM (CBS) – A letter that banned the display of American flags outside homes in a public housing complex was a mistake, the state said Thursday.

Residents at the Garden Lane Housing Complex were notified of the controversial policy in a letter from the Wrentham Housing Authority that was taped to their doors Wednesday.

The letter said:

“Due to a tenant’s repeated complaints reported to the Department of Housing and Community Development over the July 4th holiday, Wrentham Housing Authority has been informed that the public display of the American Flag in common areas is not permitted. As a result, all American flag displays must be restricted to the interior of your apartment. Flags may be visible through the apartment windows but may not be displayed on the exterior of the buildings or on the ground around the buildings.”

That infuriated residents who complained to the Housing Authority.

But no one there took responsibility for sending the letter.

Very BIG Boondoggle !!!

Meh. July 4th always looks like a flag puked on... well, every available surface. I don't blame folks for putting some limits on common areas. Everybody else has to live there, too.

Edit to add: I just mean limits are fine. Outright banning, would obviously have to have some safety basis, or grounding in existing rules (like "not allowing display of private materials in public areas")... and you'd think people these days could find something more infuriating to speak out about.

They do this in places in California because the illegal immigrants think that displaying the US flag is "racist"

Keep letting in all these welfare warriors and this stuff happens.

BTW both Robama and Obamney are for that.

If you are stupid enough to live in a HOA area, you deserve all the reaming you get. HOA are total crap, having to ask your town for permission to put up a fence or shed, to plant a tree, etc etc is total crap. Sick of the control freak morons that populate this planet.
