'Fox & Friends' gets Texas town's flag 'ban' wrong

E-mail Print PDF

Fox and FriendsA Fox & Friends Weekend host's words jarred America awake Sunday.
"There is this city council in Texas," host Alisyn Camerota began, "and they're saying no more American flags!" What?! No flags?! The week of July Fourth?

What kind of lunatic lefty socialist commie pinko town does that? Wait -- did Fox really say Mineral Wells? Five days later, the Home of Crazy Water is still explaining that you can't believe everything you see on cable TV news.

The city's effort to organize and limit cemetery decorations has turned into the latest online shamefest, with knuckleheads worldwide bashing the city and even threatening the City Council over a new policy that was badly explained.

By all accounts, the city wants to keep flags and flowers, but only in vases or brackets attached to each marker, not beside it. By online descriptions, Woodland Park Cemetery has been filled with hanging baskets, wind chimes, birdhouses, birdbaths, squirrel feeders, settees, lounge chairs and cement statues.

In other words, you can barely tell the cemetery from the Wal-Mart.

But in passing rules to clear away the clutter, city officials mistakenly wrote that flags can be flown alongside graves only around Memorial Day or Veterans Day without explaining that Old Glory or any other flag can always fly from a bracket or vase.
