Joseph Sincavage has taken down the Nazi flag he had been flying off the front of this house because, he told The Star in a phone call Friday morning, he has received complaints from neighbors — Jewish and non-Jewish alike —, epithets have been yelled at him by passersby, and onlookers were starting to cause traffic safety issues on the street.

He has also canceled his plan to fly an Israeli flag too, which he had hoped would convey that he was not anti-Jew.

Sincavage told The Star that he was flying the Nazi flag as a symbol of totalitarianism, which he fears the U.S. is beginning to follow under President Barack Obama.

    Dear Mr. Sincavage,

    Maybe I am writing a bit too late, but I have just stumbled on this article, as it was referred to on a site I frequent only recently. I appreciate your unorthodox way of expressing your views and I feel it is your right to do so, protected by the First Amendment. It is not this way here over the Big Pond, when you can be jailed for displaying nazi emblems. Strangely, the communist emblems are not universally frowned upon, and the ban of their display is hardly enforced at all, even if they are mentioned in the books of law in the very same sentence as the nazi emblems are.

    I you were going to reinstantiate your display, and if you would take my humble suggestion, please consider additionally flying the flag of the former Soviet Union on the *other* side of the flag of the United States. I think it may send a slightly clearer message. Alternatively, you may fly the flag of the communist Cuba, it may be a liitle more recognizable by Americans.

    Best wishes,

    Peter A. of Poland.
