Houstonian asked to remove anti-Obama signs
One Houstonian isn’t happy with how the Presidential Election turned out, and he isn’t afraid to let everyone that drives by his property know how he feels.
If you pass by William Miller's home in Northwest Harris County you will notice the upside down American flag. You will also notice the anti-Obama signs on his property.
“I’ve got one about Benghazi. I’ve got one about the fiscal cliff. I’ve got those signs out in my front yard. People come by every day looking at it. A man came by and got out of his car and shook my hand for putting them up there,” Miller told KTRH.
Miller maintains he is just expressing his opinion, which is his right to do. But why has he turned the American flag upside down?
“The reason why is that I want the people in the country to understand that they’re headed in the wrong direction,” Miller explained.
Miller says he's speaking up to show how much love he has for this country.
“I don’t like being called patriotic. But I’m patriotic because I know what our country was in the past and what it can be,” he said. “It is not that way now.”
Miller says none of his neighbors have complained, but the Charterwood Community Improvement Association him a letter, telling him to, "Remove the signs from the front yard." It's a request he isn't planning to honor.
“I am not going to remove the signs. I am not going to turn the flag right side up. This is my form of protest. I have the right to put any sign I want up in my yard,” Miller explained.
KTRH tried to talk with the homeowner's association, but they have no comment until later this week.
