CITY OF FRESNO BANS CONFEDERATE FLAG

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- The flagpoles in front of Fresno city hall have never flown a confederate battle flag, and city council members Oliver Baines and Esmerelda Soria lead the charge to make sure they never do.

Baines proposed an ordinance to ban the flag from being hoisted by the city on city property as a symbolic move to honor those killed in the South Carolina church shooting. He did not see it as a divisive issue.

"I don't think anyone is saying we want to the flag to be flown or that we agree it should, so if we don't agree, or if we don't disagree then let's agree."
:huh:

Can we sensationalize this a bit more?

The city is choosing not to display the flag. The city is saying that the city can not display the flag. There is no freakin ban on private parties to display the flag.

The headline makes people think that the city is banning everyone from displaying it.

Sensationalism to get eyeballs for advertisers.

This is a middle finger flick to those in favor of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act. Some in Fresno are calling the ordinance a 'Freedom from Prejudice & Stupidity Restoration Act'. Go Cali!
