OUTRAGE: Gym Members Offended by American Flag

By Debbie Schlussel

Perhaps we shouldn’t be surprised that residents of the People’s Republican of Taxachusetts hate the flag.  We know they’re the state that elected Ted Kennedy over and over.  And recently, residents of Amherst, Massachusetts expressed verbal Lewinskys to Gitmo detainees whom they want living in their community.

Now, this–gym members in Marblehead, Massachusetts are offended by the American flag.  Yeah, the location is appropriate, since most of these folks have marbles in their head.  I like the Klaus guy, who is one of the few that seems to get it.  Three cheers for gym owner Mark Shea.  Not for putting up the flag, but for creating a litmus test to show us who the real Americans are.  How much you wanna bet that every person offended by the flag also voted for Obama?  (Thanks to reader Mistress Dee for the tip.)

I wish these people would leave, but just like when Spartacus and his followers in ancient Rome would not cross the Alps, they know that the U.S. is still the prettiest girl at the dance.

I watched the news short. The flag did seem a little awkwardly placed, as far as I could tell. I thought it might have been safer for the flag to live on a very prominent wall.

You mean he didn’t fall over for 1% of his customers??? I want this guy on my city council!

I foudn it incredibly ironic that Massachusetts (resisting the urge to call it “a**hole-chews-it”) was the seat of the American Revolution.

My husband is originally from Mass- the western part of the state. Marblehead is on the north shore, right next to Salem- another “land of the freak and the home of the strange”, so it’s probably 100 percent certainty that the ones writing the nastygrams voted for Obummer. Surprisingly, with the exception of the “happy valley” around Amherst and Northampton along with the ghetto mentality of Springfield, people there tend to get more rational and conservative the further west you go within the state. Given the elitism of the coast hugging leftists, they seem to believe that if you go west of I-495, they still use outhouses, and get raided by indians.

I applaud the gym owner for having the cajones to stand up to the liberal irrational outrage.

Debbie – to be fair, a small minority of the gym members felt “offended.” Most Americans are proud of the flag and the country. People who hate America are always free to leave it and live somewhere else!

What else does one expect when you have FOB (Friend of Barack) Deval Patrick as governor of the Socialist State of Taxachusetts!

I love to support such strong-willed youth for their courage and depth hopefully theres great things in the future for our intrepid gym owner. As for his customers who are offended by the flag, they all should grab a globe pick a country and move.

“………Shea did move the flag so it would not block the TVs but said now the flag is going to stay right where it is. He also said if the complaining members decide to leave the gym he will just have to live with that.”

I swear, some of us in Massachusetts are normal…

Christopher Hayes on October 28, 2009 at 3:16 pm

    Some of us in California are normal too, but darned few it seems. lol

The complainers must be those yoga ladies who think their workout is to die for. Those people who have to been in the most trendy workouts from Tae-bo, to pilates, to yoga to MMA workouts. They should shut up and work out.

I wonder…..How many gyms do they have in Afghanistan or China?

Just amazing the luxury that people here in America have access to, every day. With out fear of it suddenly exploding around them. They are safe, secure and spoiled.

Yet they will complain about the Flag that represents them. They will complain about the Servicemen that protect them.
All so they can exercise their stupidity in public by complaining about how offended they are by being here.

please, just leave, don’t look back and don’t come back.
We wont miss you and you are of no use to us anyway.

Oh and before i forget Merry Christmas.

I do hope I have offended somebody by my comment, that’s what free speech is all about. No where in The Constitution does it say I can’t offend you (yet). So get over it.

I take issue with something MistressDee said!

“Salem- another “land of the freak and the home of the strange”

I am from Massachusetts and Salem is a beautiful town.
In Salem, you meet many people. But about 90% of them are friendly and kind.
A great deal of the town is Wiccan.
If you go into one of the Wiccan stores, you are treated like royalty and always helped out.
Salem is where I spent a good deal of my childhood!

A lot of the Wiccans in Salem are not “freaks”.
They are good honest hardworking people!
MistressDee, your comment was uncalled for!

They should shut up and work out.
