CT Residents Get Hate Mail for Flying American Flags

True Americans understand the meaning behind our U.S. flag, and why we cherish it.

It is not just a symbol of our nation, but stands for so much more.

According to the book “Our Flag” created in 1989 by our very own House of Representatives, the American flag is truly something to be proud of.

“On July 4, 1776, the Continental Congress passed a resolution authorizing a committee to devise a seal for the United States of America. This mission, designed to reflect the Founding Fathers’ beliefs, values, and sovereignty of the new Nation, did not become a reality until June 20, 1782. In heraldic devices, such as seals, each element has a specific meaning. Even colors have specific meanings. The colors red, white, and blue did not have meanings for The Stars and Stripes when it was adopted in 1777. However, the colors in the Great Seal did have specific meanings. Charles Thompson, Secretary of the Continental Congress, reporting to Congress on the Seal, stated:

“The colors of the pales (the vertical stripes) are those used in the flag of the United States of America; White signifies purity and innocence, Red, hardiness & valour, and Blue, the color of the Chief (the broad band above the stripes) signifies vigilance, perseverance & justice.”

Homeowners in a Connecticut neighborhood claim they’ve been receiving hate mail after prominently displaying American flags.

According to WFSB-TV in Hartford, at least two residents of Marlborough say they received envelopes containing anti-American and anti-government fliers.

One resident, Ashley Meyer, says the hate mail called her a “typical ignorant flag supporter,” with references to the national debt, drone attacks overseas and the Iraq War.

“Someone took all this time to send all this through the mail. Clearly, they have no patriotism and aren’t proud of our country,” Meyer said

Meyer and a neighbor, Ken Hjulstrom, notified police about the mailings, believing others have also been targeted for flying Old Glory.

Hjulstrom said the fliers contained racist and anti-Semitic content as well.

Both say they will still fly their flags and hope their neighbors will put out flags as a show of support.
