They have every right to display this flag in their window. Our Constitution protects that.

Consider the battle flags to be a fair warning sign such as "beware of dog" , "danger raw sewage", "quarantine area" , etc. These all help the rest of society protect themselves from exposure to injury, illness and ignorance.

As of the 25th of Nov., the flags are no longer in the window. Probably safely tucked away in the out-house or the kid's room.
