Arizona Woman Faces Fines for Flying Trump Flag in Her OWN Yard

(Media Research Center) The pettiness of “little leviathan” — i.e. local government — crushing individual rights seems to know no bounds.

And this is the case in Prescott Valley, Arizona, where Tawney Baccellia has been set upon by “code enforcers” because, get this, in addition to flying her American flag in her front yard, she flies a “Trump 2020” flag beneath a US flag variant in her back yard.

According to Danielle Miller, of Fox10Phoenix, local “code enforcement” officials spotted her terrible attack on the lives and property of others, and—

Hold on.

She was flying flags.

On her own property.

Evidently, based on the activity of the “enforcers”, there must be a keen similarity between aggressive attacks on the lives, property, or fundamental rights of others and…

Flying a flag.

Miller reports that in September, the “enforcers” told Ms. Baccellia she had to take down her Trump flag “because it was against city code” and that if she didn’t lower it, she’d face hundreds of dollars in fines…

Baccellia is not going to take down her flags. She says she is proud of her President and the American flag variant she flies above the Trump banner is a “Thin Blue Line” flag, flown in honor of police. Technically, she’s not even flying an American flag, even if one were to try to apply the silly codes.

And it’s likely that in February, the codes will be changed, pulling the government target off her back.
