Despite a longstanding battle with city officials and massive fines, the owners of Camping World in Statesville, N.C. are refusing to remove or downsize a massive American flag that flies on their property.
“Camping World posted a message to its Facebook page on Saturday saying the city has filed an injunction against Camping World, fining the company $50 per day going back to Oct. 15, 2018. That totals nearly $11,000,” according to WSOC-TV.
The company’s Facebook post had a message to city officials, too.
“This is about more than just the flag. This is about our Veterans, Military, and the men and women that have sacrificed for this great country. They are the reason we fly the flag and they are the reason we will NOT take it down!” it said.
The City of Statesville, North Carolina has filed a lawsuit seeking an injunction to require Gander RV in Statesville,…
A petition is circulating on Change.Org to allow the company to fly 40 by 80 foot flag, which stands outside its Gander RV location and can be seen readily from I-77. The petition has more than 105,000 signatures.
The city filed a lawsuit against the company telling them that any flag 100 feet from a highway can be no larger than 25 by 40 feet. The company’s CEO does not care about the regulation – or the fines.
“I don’t care if [the fine] goes to $500 a day. It’s not coming down,” Marcus Lemonis, CEO of Camping World and Gander RV reportedly said.
WSOC reported that the issue is “personal” to Lemonis.
My family has been car dealers, had been car dealers since the 1960s, and our key trademark was always flying our flag in our dealership in south Florida,” he reportedly said. “My family is largely immigrants of the country.”

Biden Rebuffs Advisors’ Demands to Censor OANN, Newsmax, Fox News By Executive Order
Biden advisors have sought to ban conservative media from federal housing.
According to a White House source, President Joe Biden has rebuffed suggestions that he sign an executive order that would ban certain conservative news networks from being broadcast to federal housing complexes.
The order would’ve named One America News Network, Newsmax, and Fox News by name. The former two networks are known for a broadly pro-Donald Trump editorial stance, with Fox split between establishment liberal and conservative content.
Authoritarian liberals advising President Biden are said to have suggested that Biden crack down on television and media networks which dissent from the administration’s policy views, citing the raucous US Capitol protest earlier this month as an imperative to clamp down on the opposition.
The executive order in question would most prominently affect military housing, where the cable channels in question are accessible through cable services contracted through the military services. The order, which never progressed beyond suggestions to President Biden, may even have gone so far as to restrict the television channels from private housing organizations contracted to provide lodging to military service members and their families.
Biden even went so far as to dismiss the censorship attempt as “nonsense,” according to a White House source familiar with the exchange. It’s likely that attempts to sign and enforce it would’ve been shut down by the judiciary, representing a clear attempt to discriminate against the very viewing of political expression within federal buildings.
As an authoritarian streak grows more prominent in the intolerant attitudes of American liberals, it appears President Biden himself is at least skeptical to the slightest degree of governmental censorship attempts, although Biden has never so much as even made reference to the censorship practices utilized by Big Tech companies against tens of millions of Americans.
