2:37 am
facts using the symbol of our democracy in a twisted boy to further his own commercial interests.guage. what is your response? >> interesting t displayed on m personal property. what the village did, they have a permanent ban on temporary signage. you can't fly a temporary sign on your permanent property. on the fourth of july weekend i put flags out on my property. the idea they were following the fourth of july guidelines under the ordinance code, you can fly for any national or federal holiday 30 days before after a holiday. put the american flags out, the
2:38 am
village came by the following week and handed me a pamphlet that stated what i said. it is in ornamentation for the holiday. the village doesn't consider the american flag ornamentation. it is not an ornament but it is a flag symbolizing a holiday and it says i can fly the flag during national holiday and pointed out two highlighted areas that said my flag was not a permanent flagpole and not 15 feet inside my property line. the day the officer gave me the ticket he said take the two flagpoles down. my two flagpoles were 23 feet off the street and outside the curb line and 16 feet inside the curb line which does not violate any signage ordinance at all. jillian: do you mind if i interrupt?
2:39 am
the village president david underwood said, quote, i think it is disgraceful because he is using the american flag as a tool to further his business interests. there's a lot of harsh language going on. i'm curious from your perspective, what does the american flag means you? so many people would drive by that and feel a sense of pride when they see that. >> they do. what he is saying is wrong. those flags, i built this building six years ago at those flags have been flying there for 6 and a half years, july of 2021, 6 and a half years after i built the building they are flying high and strong. i respect the american flag and the police so for them to demoralize the american flag and say i'm using it for business we just came out of the pandemic, i never put a flag in the ground outside. i did it because it was the fourth of july. i'm told today they will not take my fine unless i sign a
2:40 am
letter that says i violated the sign ordinance and will never ever violate the sign ordinance again. this is gone beyond why we are flying the flag. the reason they gave me the ticket they designated the american flag is a sign that falls under the sign ordinance. the only thing i violated was putting a flag in the ground, they are calling it a sign and not a symbol. that is what they talk about not slang it correctly. i was not violating any ordinance, any cars going by wrong or obstructing traffic. if that was the case they should have ticketed me for that. coming up with all these reasons. jillian: i'm curious to see how this plays out. thank you for joining us. we to 40 minutes after the hour, new york city declaring war on socialist democrats. jillian: more on what is going on in the big apple next.
