rainbow flag at city hall

The City of Santa Ana is awash with gang violence, graffiti and leads the County of Orange in fatal accidents between vehicles and both pedestrians and bicyclists.  So what is Santa Ana Councilman Sal Tinajero choosing to take a stand on?  He wants to “fly the gay pride flag outside city hall, next to the national flag and the California state flag,” according to the O.C. Register.

I am not terribly opposed to this idea but why this is Tinajero’s top priority when there are so many other problems in Santa Ana?

It is widely know that Tinajero has a gay son but that is not reason enough, in our opinion, to make this a civic priority when there are so many other problems in Santa Ana – including an out of control police force that is being investigated for beating up a suspect that they chased down and also for breaking and entering into a medical marijuana dispensary where they damaged equipment and ate marijuana edibles – and were caught on video doing this.

Tinajero made headlines a week ago when it was revealed that he has been a paid consultant to medical marijuana dealers.  Now he is making a rainbow flag a priority.  How about doing the job he was elected to do instead?

  1. What a waste of precious time and resources. Stop the Murders first, then start to worry about flag waving.

  2. If you hang that flag why not a confederate flag or an iron eagle ? They are all tied to controversial issues, but if u have the freedom to waive one why not all of them?

  3. If I were on City Council I would offer a substitute motion that all flags displayed on City property be proper government flags.

    1. If I were on city council, I would ask why David Benavides (second) wife to be is on a city commission. Or where Roman Reyna works. Or Where Vince Sarmiento lives.

      ALL FAIR QUESTIONS, None of which would ever be asked by the Voice Of OC, OJB, The Liberal OC.

      1. I have asked similar questions, and more, during my 2008, 2006, 2004 and 2002 Mayoral candidacy only to be labeled crazy like you are labeling Donald Trump today.

        Please be advised carpetbagger that as long as there are moron mongoloids like you, no one will ask any such questions.
