…in the case of Richmond Hero and Medal of Honor recipient Colonel Barfoot.
The law firm
prostituting themselves for representing the tyrants Home Owner’s Association has published a “clarification”.
This is not about the American flag. This is about a flag pole. And Col. Barfoot is not being forbidden from displaying an American flag.
They also conveniently include an e-mail address to which to send comments about this matter. I’m sure that is so they may more conveniently ignore them so I also submitted my comment to the law firm via their contact form.
Here is what I submitted for their consideration:
I recently was made aware of the statement from the tyrants of the Sussex Square Homeowners association as posted on the web site of a Law Firm that can pretty much write off the business of any military veteran or patriotic American for the rest of it’s (hopefully) short existence.
In response I would like to say that it doesn’t matter one whit what the “intention” of the tyrants was. All that matters is the RESULT. The result of this, if their petty and selfish desires reach fruition, will be that a true American Hero will, intentionally or not, be prevented from declaring his patriotism in the manner he finds fitting and sufficient.
This is a man who once wrote a personal check in the amount of “up to and including my life” and paid to the order of all Americans…including the ingrates of this Home Owner’s Association and law firm. He fulfilled the obligation that he committed himself to through three wars and acquitted himself above and beyond the call of duty and with the utmost of selfless heroism as evidenced by his being awarded the highest military honor this country can bestow.
In light of that, I would say it is self-evident that this man has EARNED the right to demonstrate his patriotism in any manner he damn well chooses; that the insignificant and petty people opposing his display haven’t earned and don’t deserve the time of day from this hero and that both the members of this home owners association and the law firm representing them are disgracing themselves with this action.
I’m sure you’re not, because petty tyrants and narcissistic jackasses rarely are…but you should be ashamed of yourselves.
