Virginia officials REMOVE American flag from building On July 4th, because it’s ‘target’ for protesters
American Coatings Corp raised a flag on their new project in downtown Richmond Virginia for July 4th, but the city had them remove it because it could be a ‘target’ for protesters.

I usually don’t do this and sorry ahead of time Mom but the straw just broke the camels back! This is the flag that our company made out of tarps we use on buildings. We thought it would be a good idea to hang it, which we did this morning at the new General assembly job, downtown Richmond. Early on it got great reviews by all, and thank you to the GC for allowing us to do it… BUT the GC got a call and we now have to remove it. It seems the “State” deems it a target this weekend for protestors. Since when is this flag, on this weekend, IN THIS COUNTRY, a Target!! Let me guess, if I had a black lives matter flag it would be “ok”!? “F” you & your feelings. Look, Mr. Governor , Mr. Mayor, or whoever made the call, stop letting the inmates run the assylum! This goes for politians,”that work for us”, on both sides of the aisle! Grow a pair, and stop thinking everything we have or had in this once great state is offensive. The American Flag is a symbol of Freedom! Many men and women died to maintain this freedom, many more fought and still fight to keep this freedom, and you make us remove it?? I’m all for the freedoms and liberty’s we have in this country, Protest, sure. Take a knee during the national anthem, whatever floats your boat. Marry who you want, absolutely! That’s what this flag represents! It’s bullshit that you made us take it down, but don’t forget, your actions have consequences too! You will now see this flag hanging at the Lake and I promise you it will NOT be removed! Happy Birthday America!”
