Hotel owners in the US explain why they were forced to remove the Norwegian flag from the facade

62

A wave of aggressive performances in the United States swept over local hotels. Reports come from Michigan that the owners of one of the hotels, set up in a mansion during the Civil War in the United States, were forced to remove the Norwegian flag from the facade. This flag was posted on the facade in 2018 due to the fact that the owners of the guest house have Norwegian roots. Moreover, the flag of Norway hung next to the American one.


The owners of the hotel were perplexed by the demands of the "activists". As it turns out, the protesters threatened reprisals against the owners of the guest house, as they believed that they had hung the Confederate flag during the civil war. The flags have the same colors, but it was obviously a stretch to mistake them for the same.

Greg Offenbecker, the owner of the mansion, says he is annoyed by “human stupidity”:

We had to remove the Norwegian flag after receiving about a dozen threatening letters. It was possible to confuse the flag with the Confederate flag, perhaps, if you did not know at all what the flag of Norway looks like. They would pay attention at least to the fact that the flag is not an oblique cross, but a straight one, and that there are no stars on it. The stupidity of these people annoys me!

Let us remind you that earlier the wave of the demolition of monuments swept across the United States. Even the statue of Christopher Columbus, who is considered to be the discoverer of America, got it. The protesters demolished monuments to the generals of the South, who advocated the preservation of the slave system during the American Civil War. Monuments to several American presidents have been desecrated.

            Guys, the Observer 2014 is writing a case. As in Ukraine, the adequate people are tired for the most part of the post-Maidan power, but the situation is changing extremely slowly due to too many intersecting interests of external and internal actors, so in Belarus the masses of the people have their own opinion on the things happening in the country and the world. and, naturally, they are perceived through the prism of their influence on their own lives.
            Every country has its own madmen and traitors, as well as people who are ready to achieve their own goals with their hands. But all together they are a minority, albeit a very active one.
            Look around you: you can often see above-average people on the streets, in parks, cafes, and shops. And one might get the impression that there are more of them than those who live from paycheck to paycheck or below the poverty line simply because the latter do not have money to spend, and time for leisure, because they spend a lot of time to at least somehow- then improve your position - therefore you see them much less often. But there are many times more of them.
            So do not minus without understanding - it is not for you to speak for the Belarusian people!

              The "observer" WANTED to write a case. Like intended, I thought that he would correct the person, support the stumbling colleague.))
              But in fact, he clung to the phrase, climbed onto an armored car and began broadcasting what, to whom and how to do it here, and like you are not here, but I know exactly how, where, to whom and what to talk about (sick of such ).
              And if he had initially turned on the mosk and thought, then counted to ten and thought about what was written again, then without unnecessary bickering I would have understood what was at stake. I definitely said - “Belarusians are getting sick” (not a dad, not a bosca womb, not a dull horseradish, namely, Belarusians), since Belarusians, like any other nation, are all different. There are susceptible, there are persistent. And we go to the swamp, and they, and any others. From time to time Maidan aggravation occurs (in absolutely any country, with the necessary efforts). Those. I also wrote about it. But mlyn (!), The vintage inmates of the forum can not, so as not to show their "learning". Do you see dad here smashing, without getting up from the couch. Fuck up!))))

          One of the indicators of how the victory of such protesters can "enrich" the country. Stupid and uneducated, unwilling to work, accustomed to living for free, but really wanting to live like those who studied and plowed at work until they sweat. Only not through training and work, but simply because of the color of the skin, everyone owes them.

              They are the only ones who have the right to do so. But, unfortunately, they, too, have degraded for the most part. "Thanks" to the constant handouts of the government, you can not bother too much about the prospects of life and do not strain too much

        this is disorder, disrespect for the roots of ancestors.

        yes ... and urgently start creating a monument to an Olduvai man, each state - at least one statue! but in general - according to the number of currently empty pedestals it would be necessary, for a start.

      For example, the changes in the "queen of motorsport" - F1 are indicative. The original silver "Mercedes" was painted black to please the black pilot. The pilots kneel before the race. Almost all cars have rainbow flags ... At this rate, light-skinned straights will soon have to defend their rights request

    Some gopniks, not revolutionaries. This is just compensation, for the caronovirus and the collapse of production and the fall in their incomes. Those who do not work, are sitting on unemployment benefits. They themselves raised this class of professional unemployed and got them. Now we have to try to drive them out. them back to the stall, before they were not heard and seen. There was an implicit agreement between them and the state. The crowd feels great when the state is weakening. 4 years of war between Republicans and Democrats and this is the result. Before the elections it will be even cooler, it looks like they bit to death for the presidency. Another non-systematic US president will not stand. drinks

    Indeed, this bedlam and the United States (as a state) and the Americans themselves deserved .... ultimately the US population was also the beneficiary (albeit not to a large extent) of the robbery of almost the rest of the world using the dollar system, the incitement of wars and direct intervention ...
    Now it turned out that the globalist elites and the United States do not really need and do not mind.

    Stupidity is not stupidity, but they are preparing to take power in the whole world, and if it works out, then they will "count" us all and turn us into artificial soil for flowers.

      They will break their teeth on us if they do not bring the 5th column to power. So we must keep our eyes open. We have friends, the Army and the Navy.

    Get used to it, dude, you are in the most democratic country in the world. But you can come for permanent residence in the abode of evil, Russia, and believe me, your flag will hang absolutely calmly.

    Well, in principle, in Ruina somehow they also burned the flag of Serbia, confusing it with the Russian one.
    Maybe the protesters from the Ruins were brought in?

    One of the indicators of how the victory of such protesters can "enrich" the country. Stupid and uneducated, unwilling to work, accustomed to living for free, but really wanting to live like those who studied and plowed at work until they sweat. Only not through training and work, but simply because of the color of the skin, everyone owes them.

    I give you a package of advantages for a year laughing

    This is not the very bottom. There was a TV show a couple of days ago. Thus, local blacks demand that EMNIP should not be paid compensation for the current immigrants from Africa, because their ancestors were not slaves on the American continent or oppressed by whites.

    Plus they are also outraged by racism in the field of symphonic music. Why are there no black performers in symphony orchestras, as well as composers writing classics. Rap and jazz no longer suit them

    Mass hysteria is the norm in the United States. If a submarine with the Andreev flag floats there, they will jump out of the windows shouting "the Confederates are coming."

    I don't quite agree. In the 70-80s, too, there were enough people who wrote illiterately. It's just that now, with the development of communication on the Internet, this is striking, but then they could only find out about it when writing explanatory and vacation applications laughing
    But I agree that the test system exacerbates the problem of education

    According to the theory of evolution, if a million monkeys start typing, they will be able to repeat the masterpiece "War and Peace".
    The advent of the internet has disproved this theory.
