Texas Patriot’s Flag A ‘Threat To Muslims?’
Webster, Texas, resident Duy Tran moved into an apartment complex called The Lodge At El Dorado and hung an American flag on the balcony. He was immediately told to take it down by the apartment manager because it, “was a threat toward the Muslim community.”
“I’m not a threat toward anybody,” Duy Tran, who moved into the complex a few days ago, told CNN affiliate KHOU. When asked to explain their position the complex’s manager denied the station’s request for an on-camera interview and handed a reporter the following statement instead:
“While the Lodge on El Dorado admires our resident’s patriotism, we must enforce our property rules and guidelines. Such guidelines maintain the aesthetics of our apartment community and provide for the safety of all residents. The apartment community already proudly displays our country’s flag in a safe and appropriate manner at the entrances to our community.”
Tran told KHOU that he has friends who died for this country, so he decided to hang an American flag from his balcony in their honor.
“What really stunned me is that she said it’s a threat towards the Muslim community,” Tran told the station. “I’m not a threat toward nobody.”
In a statement to KHOU, the manager for Tran’s apartment complex, said she appreciates residents’ patriotism but displays must conform to community guidelines.
Tran said he has no plans to remove his flag.
“I’m gonna leave my flag there, as an American, until she shows me proof that I don’t have the right to leave my flag there.”
Do you support Tran? Should he be allowed to fly his American flag at his home . . . No Matter What Muslims Think?
