It’s just a little item in a paper downunder, nothing anyone’s going to particularly notice and there might even be some sympathy for taking it down on our side of poltiics …
… I for one am dead against this:
Elderly gay couple ‘bullied’ into pulling down a gay pride flag from their Port Melbourne balcony.
Sure I don’t like it, sure the whole gay mafia issue is going to tear society apart if Them get their way but as for being “allowed” to fly one’s flag – that is surely sacrosanct.
Take the ISIS flag over Tower Hamlets townhall steps – that needed to come down because it is purporting to represent other people in the borough but this flag of this couple – it’s on their property.
If you abet the taking down, then you are also abetting the taking down of the English flag. You might say that’s our nation’s flag and it is, you might say the gay flag is a different thing and it is.
But where do you draw the line?
Mind you, it’s a bit silly flying that flag in public as they’ll now be targets.
