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.
