I think some America-hating retards up in Massachusetts need a healthy dose of Rex Kwon Do.
Okay, this has to be the most bone headed, anti-American, knee-jerk reaction that I have ever seen anywhere… and that’s saying something from someone who’s been in combat in another country. Read on and embrace the stupid…
myfoxboston.com–The owner of Gravity Fitness in Marblehead says gym members have complained about the American flag hanging inside the gym.
The Fitness club’s owner, 23 year-old Mark Shea, hung the 12 foot long flag from the gym rafters on Friday and had over a dozen complaints by Monday.
Some have complained that the flag blocks gym televisions, while some members have gone as far as to say that the flag is offensive.
One members was quoted to say “It’s like putting a Jesus cross in my face”…….
You would be thinking “this has to be a joke, right?” Wrong. I called Gravity Fitness today and they confirmed the story. The lovely lady answering the phone also said “isn’t this ridiculous? How the hell can you get a offended by an American flag? And comparing a flag to Jesus? Really?” I told her that the only religous symbol that could possibly be gleaned from the American flag was a Wiccan pentagram and that they should be happy that they got represented 50 times (or 57 if you’re the president)… but most of the Wiccans I’ve run into aren’t huge gym buffs. I also added “keep the flag”. She said she would pass the message on to the owner and that he has no intentions of taking that flag down.
Anyway, if you live in Massachusetts near Marblehead, please give your health club/gym business to Gravity Fitness. They’ve earned your patronage.
