DISGRACEFUL! Vietnamese American told to take down his American flag from Texas apartment because it is “a threat to the Muslim community”

A Webster man says his apartment complex manager told him his American flag was a “threat to the Muslim community,” and that he has to take it down. But he’s not giving up without a fight. Duy Tran says, one thing is clear: “The flag means a lot to me.”

KHOU  He’s talking about his American flag that he proudly put up when he moved in just a few days ago. But then an apartment manager at the Lodge on El Dorado told him he had to take it down. “What really stunned me is that she said it’s a threat towards the Muslim community,” said Tran. “I’m not a threat toward anybody.”

But there are other patriotic symbols hanging from other balconies in the complex, and Tran doesn’t plan to budge.  To Tran it’s about so much more than stars and stripes. “I have friends that died for this country,” he said.

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."

But unlike other states, it is not the government forcing him to do it.  It is some moronic apartment manager who is probably a Muslim and is the one offended.
