Sorry, But This is a Hotel to Avoid….

Like Bloomberg News who ordered it’s newscasters not to wear American flag pins on their lapels (shortly after 9/11), we should vote with our dollars by NOT STAYING or patronizing businesses who disdain the flag, who don’t revel in the fact they prosper in this great republic…


Just before firing Sean May the day after he was sent home for wearing an American flag pin, the Casa Monica Hotel answered some questions in an email Friday.

“The Casa Monica Hotel located in St. Augustine, Florida, is an American-based, homegrown historic hotel,” the email reads. “The property reflects its pride in America and great patriotism by flying the Stars and Stripes high over the hotel. The American flag greets every guest and employee with its symbolism of our belief in this great country.”

“However, our employee handbook clearly states, ‘No other buttons, badges, pins or insignias of any kind are permitted to be worn.’ No matter an individual’s national preference, political views or religious affiliation, it is a standard regulation which ensures equality for all Grand Performers (employees).”

The Casa Monica Hotel’s response has angered many people, some who say the policy is backwards and that American flag pins shouldn’t be banned but should be embraced.
