From Kim:

We have been celebrating Pride month at our home and now twice our pride and BLM flags have been torn down at 47th and Hinds St.

The first was in the first days of June and now again the night of July 1.

If anyone has information about it please let us and know, and keep flying your flags and signage! Seeing that our neighborhood supports all families and voices is one of the reasons we cherish living in West Seattle.

    i am so sorry to hear this but it’s honestly not surprising given how some groups seem to think they have license to do whatever they want in this country as of late.i have an idea for you, though! i have seen a house up shoreline that has all kinds of pride flags and other decor that uplifts diverse communities. alongside the fence of the house is a laminated sign that says for any of their items, flags included, that are damaged, stolen or defaced, they will make a $100 donation for each item to a lgbtqia+ organization of their choice. it seemed like a good way to go about deterring people who want to spread hate so i thought i’d she the idea in case you want to riff off of it.

      Or it could be a win/win bankruptcy for that household!

    I feel your pain.  I had my Trump flag vandalized MULTIPLE times back in 2020.  As well as dog poop thrown in my yard.   Unfortunately- this community does NOT support all families and voices.  only the ones they agree with.  Kinda funny, huh?  You should really put a Ukraine Flag out as well.  Show your support.

      Sorry, but we don’t tolerate or support fascism.

      Since you have the audacity to post this after Jan 6, I can only assume you are one.

      Sorry about your vandalism but sure hope you are watching the Jan. 6 hearings with Cassidy Hutchinson.  Your advertised support was of a man willing to undermine American democracy for his own gain. I’m currently dealing with a neighbor setting off loud fireworks despite the ban. I am trying to comfort a puppy. The neighborhood has many rude people disrespecting others.

    I’ve read about this sort of thing happening in other Seattle neighborhoods also – one in Magnolia and another near phinney ridge. Very cowardly and strange way to spend your time I think. Pretty strange times in the US right now.

    This is very sad. Who in this hood hates pride and BLM? Get lost!!!

    Fascist cowards.I know, redundant.

    We had the same happen to our pride flag on Alki!

    In general I have always found West Seattle to be a very open and welcoming community. One that accepts everyone regardless of their views, lifestyles etc. BUT, there is always going to be those who are against anything and some are willing to destroy others property just because they don’t agree with their beliefs. Personally I feel bad for you and hope the perpetrators are caught. Almost everyone I meet in West Seattle feels the same us.

Sorry, comment time is over.
