Company CEO Risks Jail to fly American Flag
Article from The Daily Wire by Joseph Curl.
Marcus Lemonis is prepared to go to jail over an American flag his company is flying over one of his stores.
“We have flown this flag for a long time,” Lemonis said. “As I told the city…it’s not coming down under any circumstance.”
Lemonis is chief operating officer of Gander RV. He’s been flying a huge flag — 40 feet by 80 feet, or 3,200 square feet, the size of a fairly large house — over a store in Statesville, N.C.
But city officials say the flag is too big. They filed a lawsuit May 7 against Holiday Kamper Co. -– which is the parent company of the store formerly known as Camping World. If Lemonis doesn’t take action within 30 days, he could be jailed.

Judge: Is this company IN the United States? Traitorous plaintiff: Yes, your Honor. Judge: Case DISMISSED!
If anything, it’s not BIG ENOUGH!
This country has become a Communist Country for not allowing our Country flag to be flown.
It’s Not hurting anyone.
This man is a Patriot, an American and is Proud to be an American.
Leave Him Alone!!!
Yes! Yes! Yes!
Sounds like a place for Oathkeepers to hold their annual meeting!
We could make it a 2nd Styurges Motorcycle Club summer camp?
Seems like two bits worth of authority has gone to someone’s head.
Leave the country…..leave the proud Americans alone.
Take the flag down long enough to hang the bastards that want it down then put it back up and the scum in the dumpster where they belong!
As I understand it, Mr. Lemonis is an immigrant from Lebanon and now a naturalized citizen who loves his/our country, the United States of America and shows it. I wonder if any member of Statesville, N.C. city council or the mayor flies a Flag at their own house or did they ban that too?
Too large is relative. They need to explain what damage this flag is causing,
God Bless this CEO – he is the type person our country needs. The City Council should be ignored and voted out. This is America. Statesville, get off of your A$$ and get your government right. What a disgrace! An 84 yrold Marine here –
Fly the flag and shop at Camping World!!!!Are we becoming the USSR or China?
