Massachusetts Town Issues American Flag Ban

Swiftly rescinds ban

What’s that saying? The squeaky wheel gets the oil? Well someone in Wrentham, Massachusetts was so offended by a display of the American flag that they petitioned the town to ban Old Glory at their apartment building. And the town actually issued the ban!

“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 you could imagine, this didn’t go over very well with, well, everyone that likes America. The town was quick to lift the absurd order.

And now no one in Wrentham will take responsibility for writing the complaints or granting the ban. Ah, bureaucracy at its finest.
