I'm Not Making Any More People's Republic Jokes

Post by baffled » Tue Sep 17, 2013 6:20 pm

The San Leandro City Council approved flying the flag of the People’s Republic of China above City Hall next month, despite protests over the nation’s human rights record.

On Monday, the council voted 4-3 to fly the flag on October 1st, China’s National Day. The Chinese Consulate has said they might stop by to visit on that day.

Councilmember Benny Lee, who made the proposal, said flying the flag would help attract Chinese investors.

Of course, the protests are over the human rights record of China. A problem to be sure, but nobody's got a problem flying another country's flag over the city hall of an American City?

Benny Lee, heh.

Yeah, seriously.

San Leandro is forgetting the most important part: It's SAN LEANDRO.

Fortunately, the US flag code has a provision for that.
When flown with the national banner of other countries, each flag must be displayed from a separate pole of the same height. Each flag should be the same size. They should be raised and lowered simultaneously. The flag of one nation may not be displayed above that of another nation in time of peace.
In your mind does this violate the US flag code? I don't have all the details but it doesn't seem to.

It's not about the US flag code. I'm aware of what it states.

Are you also outraged about the Ethiopian flag over San Jose?

Or, have you ever been to Boston City Hall? They've got a different foreign flag there all the time.

As much as this makes me want to puke, I beleive that localities have the right to do what they want as long as the Bill of Rights is not violated. Local and State are the only levels of Government where the Libs even have a case to make or have a right to peddle their shit.

So it can fly.

But it also shows that it's a town full of anti American shitbags and pussies, because no one pulled it down and wiped their ass with it or set it on fire.

Personally I think it be great if the po;politician who pushed this was found dead,throat slit with a star gouged in their forehead.

eh, San Leandro isn't particularly liberal, at least for the Bay Area. San Leandro isn't particularly anything, it just is. It's the part of the nonerogenous taint of the East Bay.

but there are a lot of Chinese expats and first or second generation Chinese-Americans living down there.

If the flag of a communist nation flew over government property for a day and the flag did not receive any bullet holes or shit stains, it's a fucking Liberal pit. Being next to San Fran might make them look less.

Those immigrnats and people of Chinese ancestory need to decide if they are Americans, who happen to have asian blood or if they are Commie Chinks.

They can be Commie Chinks but in 15 - 30 years when we go to war with China, they can all find themselves in internment camps, run by Baffled. :-)

hate to burst your bubble:

I'm a dirty liberal and I think it's a bad fucking idea to hang the Chinese flag on gov't property too, at least not in a general "we are the world, kumbaya" kind of way where we fly the flags from Germany and Benin and Madagascar and shit too.

oh, I also used to work trying to make sure that injured vets got their benefits from the VA

but we're all the same, so.

I agree.

Good on you! Those are the only people who should get any Federal money for their needs, because unlike those your side likes to throw our money at, they actually earned it and showed some real loyalty to the Republic. The most iimportant Lib politician or reporter is worth less than an E-3, who works as the base rat catcher.

No, we are not. People have worth, it's a mix of what they contribute, what they have made, what they do for those around them by their efforts or as a result of their efforts ect.

A commie chink is only worth the bullets it takes to kill it. Hell the fucker would still owe $0.38! ;-)

Yeah, flying one country's flag here is bullshit, IMO.

Doing the whole nations without borders, flags in a series kind of thing is fine, but kowtowing to a bunch of chinks is un-good.

DARTH,
San Leandro isn't really that liberal. The farther east you tend to go, the more conservative you get. The town I grew up in was pretty conservative, but it also has an estimated median income of ~$120k.

edit: My old town is still just slightly democrat, but not exactly the lefties you'll find in Berkeley.

People throughout the country are going to be pissed at the flag flying about beautiful San Leandro.
