[Click Orlando] A Florida veteran, Larry Murphree of Jacksonville, must live in the communist section of Jacksonville. He was fined $8,000 and might lose his home because of an unobtrusive flag in a flower pot on his stoop.

The HOA put a lien on his home according to Murphree.

The HOA (Home Owner’s Association) gave him 30 days to pay the fine and remove the flag before they foreclose.

Murphree already settled with the HOA last year but the anti-American HOA rewrote the rules after the settlement. The Sentinel reported Mr. Murphree’s plight last year.

“I want it to go away,” Murphree said. “It’s such a minor little thing and they keep coming after me.”

Fox News discovered that Mr. Murphree has the right to keep the flag on his stoop. According to Florida statute 720.304 section 2a:

“Any homeowner may display one portable, removable United States flag…in a respectful manner…not larger than 4 1/2 feet by 6 feet…regardless of any covenants, restrictions, bylaws, rules, or requirements of the [homeowners’] association.”

Murphree will continue the fight.

“When I first moved here, I loved it,” Murphree said. “It was wonderful. But it got where I’m being nitpicked more and more. I don’t want to move.”

What kind of people would do this to a veteran? Is this still America?
