This is how far-left Nevada’s City of Reno has moved. Instead of the American flag flying over city hall, somebody hoisted the Gay Pride flag in its stead.
Both the mayor, Hillary Schieve, an ardent supporter of homosexual marriage — having lead an activist march through Reno and later attended a Gay Pride Parade in San Francisco — along with the city council have denied responsibility, apologized for the action and have since made certain the American flag’s returned to its rightful place.
“I was alerted tonight that the US flag was not flying over City Hall. I can most certainly see why people would be offended or upset. I did not order that the American flag be taken down. I have asked that the flag be put back immediately! It was certainly not the city’s intention to be disrespectful and never should have happened. I will take full responsibility since I represent this city. I have family members who have served and I know the importance of the ultimate sacrifice they have made for our country. I am very proud to be an American and we should always support our troops and veterans no matter what. I too am offended and there is no excuse for this. Those who have served deserve the highest respect for their service. My sincerest apologies!!!” Schieve wrote on Facebook.
Taking a personal position as an advocate for one thing or another is fine, but to disrespect the 98% of Renoite’s who don’t give a damn one way or the other about ‘who loves who’ is stepping way out-of-bounds since city hall’s funded by a majority of citizen who also value what the American flag represents — not only to Reno, but our nation. Somebody needs to be fired.
This shit has to come to a stop!
