Camping World CEO Refuses To Remove Gigantic American Flag, Says He’d Rather ‘Go To Jail’ Than Take It Down

This is what a patriot looks like.

Marcus Lemonis, CEO of Camping World, recently stated that he’d rather be tossed behind bars than to remove the enormous American flag that flies high and proud outside of his RV store in North Carolina.

Back in May, Lemonis said he would not be taking the 40-foot by 80-foot banner, despite the lawsuit filed by Statesville, North Carolina, and accumulating a rather hefty amount of fines for flying the flag.

During a Monday interview with Fox News’ Martha MacCallum, Lemonis insisted that he would not be pulling down the flag anytime soon.

“The ordinance doesn’t matter to me,” he told MacCallum. “If you look at the North Carolina statute, it says as long as it’s not impairing someone’s health and well-being, it’s not a big deal.”

Lemonis also revealed that local lawmakers told him that the flag could be dangerous because of its size and its close proximity to the interstate.

“They made the claim it could cause an accident on the freeway because it was too distracting — it was too beautiful,” he added.

“There’s no question that I violated that ordinance,” he admitted. “When veterans show up at the stores for the flag-raisings, and when they come on Saturdays and do their veteran rides, they will weep at the bottom of the flagpole. That’s the conviction that I need to say it’s just not going to come down.”

“I would rather to go jail,” Lemonis declared. “The city of Statesville filed a lawsuit about two months ago. If I don’t take it down, I will be in violation of the court order.”

Lemonis is absolutely right. This is about more than just being a rebellious citizen. It’s about the right a man has to fly the flag of the country he’s proud of without the government stepping in and ordering him around.

People need to take responsibility for themselves and learn how to drive safely and ignore things they may see on the side of the road. How many billboards are posted along roads that are well done and could be considered distracting?

Yet, strangely, these billboards are still up. Maybe it’s because folks stand to make a substantial amount of money from advertising by allowing these banners to stay up.

This is government trying to play nanny again. Good on Lemonis for standing up for what he believes in and refusing to allow big government intrusion to ruin his patriotism.

WATCH: Sitting Dem Senator Threatens to Punch Trump In the Face, Then Calls for Peace

Another Democrat advocating for violence…

Dems love to say President Trump’s “rhetoric” leads to harm. Yet, they have no problem saying they literally want to physically assault the most powerful man on the planet. Where’s the logic? Can liberals even spell “hypocrisy?” From Daily Caller: Montana Democratic Sen. Jon Tester said Thursday the best way for Democrats to beat President Trump in 2020 is to “go back and punch him in the face” in an interview on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” Tester noted, “I don’t think, even in states where Donald Trump won big, that it did you any good running away from Donald Trump. I think you need to go back and punch him in the face. The truth is this guy is bad for this country.” WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=1&v=QDztkBropAI Democrats truly believe the words they say and have no comprehension of the term “irony.” Liberal rhetoric has greatly harmed Americans for a long, long while now, yet they have the gall to slam President Trump for speaking the truth. Insane.

It’s that simple. Democrats and the mainstream media will look the other way on anything so long as you disagree with Trump on everything. Check out the tweet Montel sent, which he of course deleted: Really? Calling for cops to tase a conservative white woman, huh?

CONFIRMED: Trump Is Raising More Money In California Than ALL 2020 Dems – Except Two

HAHAHAHA! Excellent.

Here’s a story you won’t see ANYWHERE but on conservative websites. And there’s a good reason for it. President Trump is raking in more cash in the Golden State than all but two 2020 Dems. Go figure, huh? From CalMatters: This may come as surprise to the president, the national media and more than a few Californians, but there are plenty of Trump supporters in the “Resistance State,” too. And since the beginning of the year, they’ve been spending a lot of money to keep the president in the White House. New campaign finance statistics show that President Donald Trump raised $3.2 million—more money from the California donor class than all of his Democratic challengers, but two. Not only that, but the Trump campaign collected more from itemized small donors—those who gave in increments of less than $100 at a time—than anyone else in the field. The president bested even Democratic contender Bernie Sanders in the small-donor sweepstakes.
