Firefight Over the Red, White and Blue

Remember last week I posted the story about the apartment complex that wouldn’t let their residents fly the American flag? I understand the management changed their minds and the flags can now fly.

Here’s another story of squashed freedom’s and bravery from Chester, PA. I’ve been to Chester, PA, it’s just down the road from Philadelphia. Remember what happened there a couple of hundred years ago? It is the birthplace of American freedom. So now you can’t fly the American flag on the corner of a locker in a fire station in the United States of America. Thank God we have men like firefighter James Krapf who will stand up for his freedoms. Will you stand up for your freedoms in Obama’s America?

Chester, Pa., firefighter James Krapf wants to know what’s wrong with Old Glory. The 11-year veteran was suspended without pay Thursday after he refused to peel a sticker of the American flag from his locker.

“It’s pride…it’s a matter of pride,” Krapf said.

A new department rule mandates that all stickers and statements — union, cartoon and political — be stripped from lockers after several offensive and racist images showed up in the firehouse. But Krapf figured the red, white and blue was safe.

It seems he was wrong.
