(Breitbart) A car dealer in West Palm Beach, Florida, is defiant in the face of threats from city officials to fine him for placing American flag banners on his car lot in violation, they say, of a city ordinance.

Mike Wangle, general manager of a Kia car dealership, told the media that he has been threatened with fines of $1,000 a day for having placed the long American flag-like banners around his business.

“We’re just trying to show our patriotism,” Wangle told the local NBC affiliate on Monday.
