thanks, Obama

"The public safety of our city is of paramount importance, particularly our landmarks and bridges that are already known to be high-risk targets," he said. "We will not surrender our public safety to anyone, at any time. Political and social expression, whatever its message may be, has a place in our society, but not at the expense of others' security."

He then retired to his fainting couch.

/Don't kid yourself. White flags would kill you and everyone you love if they could.

I figured Detroit would be the first to give up.
Maybe their white flag burned down before anyone saw it?

It signifies that the Flag Laundry needs to ease up on the bleach.

Must be the same security from the World Trade Center.

brap: It signifies that the Flag Laundry needs to ease up on the bleach.


I came here to say that what if it didn't entail replacing the flags but instead shooting them with some bleaching laser. No, wait, lasers are so yesterday. It was a drone with bleach what did it, yeah, that's it!

It's part of the War of 1812 celebrations.

That is the actual flag that flew over the White House in 1814 when Madison fled.

Let it been known that I wasn't the one who raised this point in the thread (for a goddamn change).

Brooklyn surrendered years ago when they let the Dodgers move to L.A...snort, grumble, cough..grouse....dammit, Betty. Where's my teeth?

Well done, excellent troll.

From a distance, the flags appeared to be white, but video from the scene showed there was a hint of stars and stripes visible on the flags.

Apparently, these colors do run.
 
2014-07-22 03:47:08 PM  
I sure subby is aware of which borough's territory includes the East River, and that therefore most of the Brooklyn Bridge is actually in Manhattan.
 
2014-07-22 03:50:42 PM  
Cheap made flag. Problaly made in China or America, because this would happen if they were German made.
/my derp for today.

"Patrick Harris, 46 years old, of the Upper West Side was alarmed by the incident. He was walking friends from France across the bridge as the new flag went up. "

Made me think it was satire for a minute.

So Occupy Wall Street finally won?

This might have been a better choice of flag:

Hey, I bought it fair and square -- I'll decorate it however I like!

This is a cheap stunt to detract from the Pride Flags flying from the Ed Koch Queensboro Bridge.

Brooklyn surrendered to Hipsters. That is what this is about.
 
2014-07-22 04:04:21 PM  
White isn't very hipster.
 
2014-07-22 04:04:28 PM  
At least this can be taken down, not like that azz Sane Smith that pained his lame tag on the bridge in huge white letters so many years ago.

You should feel safer.  That means the panopticon society where your every move is caught on video isn't here.

Yet.

""It's some kind of peace or surrender movement, right? It's weird though, it's crazy someone could get up there without anybody knowing," one man said. "


Can someone tell me what a "surrender movement" is? I don't think he means the kind that ends up with soiled French trousers, or does he?
 
2014-07-22 04:26:00 PM  
So, either the Yankees or the Mets are giving up early?

Also, it could be the surrender of the residents of NYC to the Gestapo that the NYPD has become.

Or, Olav the night shift flag launderer, forgot to use color safe bleach.

/take your pick
/YMMV

Right after 9/11 people in my area started printing out a photo of the flag with that caption with their cheap inkjet printers and pasting them in their car windows. Mere months later, they were sun faded and I just had to laugh at the drivers...

PBR is made in Bangladesh now?  Why source recycled urine from halfway around the world when it's available locally?

I give up.
