You Won’t Believe Why This Texas Man Was Labeled A Threat To Muslims

When Duy Tran moved into his new apartment earlier this month, one of the first items he displayed was his American flag. The patriotic resident hung the banner proudly from his balcony and was shocked to receive a reprimand from the complex’s management a few days later.

The representative told him to take the flag down, suggesting some residents might find it intimidating. Tran, however, has no plans of simply capitulating.

“What really stunned me is that she said it’s a threat towards the Muslim community,” he told local news station KHOU, insisting he is “not a threat toward anybody.”

According to Tran, the only reason he hung the flag in the first place is his respect for what it represents.

“It means a lot to me,” he confirmed, later noting that the symbols has a special significance because he has “friends that died for this country.”

He said that, until the complex can provide him with some evidence that his display is illegal, the flag will remain in its position of prominence.

“I’m going to leave my flag there,” he said, “as an American, until she shows me proof that I don’t have the right to leave my flag there.”

As for the complex, management declined to answer any specific questions, opting instead to release the following statement:

“While the Lodge on El Dorado admires our resident’s patriotism, we must enforce our property rules and guidelines. Such guidelines maintain the aesthetics of our apartment community and provide for the safety of all residents. The apartment community already proudly displays our country’s flag in a safe and appropriate manner at the entrances to our community.”

The prepared statement conspicuously excluded any mention of Tran’s assertion that management’s concern was with the local Muslim community. When KHOU staff attempted to inquire further, reports indicate staff summoned an officer to take them off the premises.

Management did not return a request for comment made by Western Journalism as of press time.

Though staff is notably tight-lipped regarding the complaint, the complex’s Facebook page reveals a long list of comments and reviews from indignant Americans.

    Who gives a rat’s rectum if muslims living in OUR country as guests in OUR house are offended by a display of OUR AMERICAN flag! This country was not founded for them, it is not their country, they are here as a PRIVILEGE, dependent on the 14th Amendment, an EXCEPTION made to the Law of the Land enacted as a gesture of hospitality and generosity offering to share the bounty of American liberty with others.

    This country was founded for “Ourselves and Our Posterity” only, not the entire world; just because you invite someone over for supper does not entitle them to the deed to your house.

    If these ingrates are offended by what we do on our own house they are free to leave.
