The town of Wrentham, MA told residents of a public housing complex that they should not be able to host American flags.
The Wrentham Housing Authority notified residents of the policy through a letter taped to their doors Wednesday.
The unsigned letter says the move was made after a tenant complained to the state Department of Housing and Community Development over the Fourth of July holiday.
Update: CBS Boston reports that the state is now claiming that the ban was “a mistake”:
Their spokesman, Jason Lefferts, issued this statement late Thursday morning:
“We were not aware of this decision when it was made, and it was a mistake that is being corrected immediately. Department of Housing and Community Development policy for local housing authorities includes not allowing displays of private materials in public areas. This does not extend to respectful and safe displays of the American flag.”
Somehow I doubt they were not "aware" of the decision. I think they just got pummeled by negative reports that they reversed their idiotic policy. We all know Liberals are not patriotic.
What is going on in the state of Massachusetts? Their Governor Deval Patrick just vetoed a bill that would ban the purchase of filth using food stamps.
