Douche of the Week – Knob Hill Homeowners Association

Updated: July 17, 2011

By RU Contributor Rob

Army Sergeant First Class Sean Gittens has literally given his life to our country. He returned home safely from multiple combat deployments in which he was exposed to many a concussive blast. Unfortunately, those blasts took a toll on him and due to the traumatic brain injuries; he suffered a brain aneurism which left him wheelchair bound and unable to communicate. SFC Gittens is now cared for by his loving wife Sharon and four children along with full-time medical staff.

Sean and his family were approached by Homes for Our Troops (HFOT) – a national organization which modifies or builds homes for our severely injured veterans – who wanted to build a wheelchair-friendly home for the Gittens family that would greatly improve their quality of life. Sharon Gittens, Sean’s wife, selected Knob Hill Subdivision as they were already living in an apartment there and, at the time, liked the community.

At this point, everyone is happy and it seems like this is going to be another tear-jerking event of charity that will benefit a much deserving veteran. HFOT comes up with plans for a 2700 sq ft home that, after several negotiations with the subdivision, architecturally met all of the building requirements of the Deed Restrictions for the subdivision. Homes for Our Troops received the final approval from the Board of Directors led by Homeowners Association President Rick Trump.

HFOT proceeds with the building process, has a contractor lined up and hundreds of volunteers ready to execute the mission of building this home, and just four days prior to ground breaking this seemingly wonderful story of charity goes from sugar to shit! It seems that the Board of Directors had a change of heart, having their attorney issue a cease and desist order on HFOT halting the building process.

The fuck-sticks of SNOB Hill released a statement that the home to be built is too small for the subdivision and must be at least 3400 square feet even though the square footage of the plans meets all of the building requirements. The Board also stated that the home must be a multi-level home which contradicts the specifications of the deed restrictions and for a wheelchair bound veteran is about as useful as a screen-door on a submarine. Something is afoot and it stinks like bullshit!

Upon prodding, it seems that the ever snobbish residents of “the hill…dahling” were worried that this 2700 sq ft home is going to have a negative impact on their property values. Well, I hate to break the fucking news to you, but check the economy and the housing market in particular. Your 5000 sq foot home in Evans, Georgia isn’t worth shit to begin with.

In a press release from the Founder of HFOT, John Gonsalves, “Despite our working closely with the Knob Hill Property Owners Association over the past four months, we find ourselves in an untenable situation…Frankly, this late action begun by the Knob Hill Property Owners means we must suspend working on the home. The Knob Hill Property Owners Association has now assured that SFC Gittens and his family will not be able to have the home they so desperately need. We have done everything in our power to try to resolve this situation, but it appears that the community is not willing to accept this home, and SFC Gittens and his family into the community.”

After twenty-two years of active service, this honored veterans wife received the message loud and clear, “They just don’t want us here,” she said during a phone interview. Wisely, Mrs. Gittens has chosen to move on from Knob Hill after assurances from HFOT that they would still build the home they promised, just in a more welcoming community. To top it all off, no one from the Board of Directors had the balls to attend the news conference when Sharon Gittens declared that she was moving on from Knob Hill.

To the members and residents of the Knob Hill Subdivision in Evans, Georgia who opposed the building of the home for SFC Sean Gittens…and in the words of Cee Lo Green… “Forget you” (or maybe the uncensored version would be a little more appropriate). We hereby banish you to DOUCHEBAGISTAN, I am sure they need someone to dictate architectural styles.

    “Oh my, we certainly can’t have people who actually worked for a living at a hard job here in our neighborhood! And certainly no baby killers!” F*ck you Snob Hill, you don’t deserve to have a veteran living in your neighborhood.

    It’s pretty bad that a man can leave his family to fight for people to act like snobbish asses and come home and be treated like this. I am quite speechless that a veteran could be treated like this and maybe a bit relieved that all came out before breaking ground. How horrible would it be for this family to live in a community who has no respect. Our soldiers deserve a hell of a lot more than anyone can give them. They can come live near us! We’ll welcome them!

    Why anyone would want to live in a place with a frakking homeowners’ association is beyond me. The whole point of owning your own land is to be able to do what you want with it. God forbid you should ever leave a garage door open and show that somebody actually LIVES there. Oh, no, you can’t drive THAT, it doesn’t fit our image! Ye GODS, you might as well be renting!

    Sounds to me like a good place to have the Rolling Thunder crowd do a few hours of riding threw the community……

    I agree wth JMC.. dont understand moving to a place that supplies a rulebook

    I have a request for this and all other douchebags of the week that you guys post… if available, could you please post websites and email addresses along with the article?

    I think a lot of us followers of Ranger Up and patriots in general would enjoy telling these asshats exactly how we feel…

    Thank you,

    Wouldn’t it be nice if all the ‘sheepdog’ in the area just left Snob Hill to fend for themselves? Huddle together and tremble you bags. Night approaches.

      Rock on, Steve. But it would have to just be a threat. Sheepdog have the ingrained need to protect, even when the sheep are scumbags.

    Their website is http://knobhill.org/Home/tabid/36/Default.aspx. They have a lovely note to members on their home page stating they are working closely to help the veteran and the association.

    It has been said: America is not at war. The American military is at war. America is at the mall.

    I wonder if the decision to deny ownership was in any way based on the fact that SFC Gittens just happens to be black? The square footage being just a cover, it would be easy to proove, if any of the other houses have less than 3400 sq ft. and if any of the other houses are not two stories. But even if they are the requirments still violate federal law in regards to disabled access. I would press that issue and see if I couldn’t win a judgement and let the homeowner’s association pay the cost of building a home. Where ever SFC Gittens chooses to live.

    I would say that I am surprised, but unfortunately this crap of prima facia support for the Vets all too often turns into shit. I am sure the “rules” prohibit a regulation size U.S. Flag. “Fuck them!”

    Does anyone have an address so that we can bombard these bastards with “love” mail for their unwillingness to accept a true American hero into their neighborhood? This kind of BS is DISGUSTING!

    All those whose hearts are made of stone, may you find the same charity that you have given….oh and as an after-thought, go back to France.

    KNOB seems to fit these douchebags completely. I have no problem living where there is a homeowners association to keep the trash out of the yards and broken down cars off the street, but these people take the cake. There is a very similar situation going on in the San Antonio area, but I think it has so many police officers “showing their butts” about it, the homeowners association is losing the battle. Good luck to this wonderfully deserving hero, I know there are many neighborhoods out there that would jump at the chance to have him bless thier community.

    Maybe we can get a nice 3,400 square foot mosque built there… and deed it over to Mr. Al Kyda. Then put in a homeless shelter next door. And a methadone clinic and halfway house next to that. Let’s also move a few dozen illegals into some of the existing homes, as this would help improve property values by making sure the neighborhood doesn’t have vacant houses in it. As long as we make sure all our projects are large multi-storied facilities, there should be no problem.

    Is it possible that the Snob Hill Neighborhood Gagglefuck has ANOTHER motive behind their sudden switch? I note with some interest that SFC Gittens happens to be black. Maybe this was okay with the HOA so long as he was RENTING an apartment, but oh-my-God now one of THEM wants to actually own a house here! I think the ACLU should sit down and have a little chat with the fine folks of Bob-the-Knob Hill HOA regarding their racism. (Oh, and just for the record, I happen to be caucasian – but the race I claim is the HUMAN race.)

    It deeply saddens me to hear stories of our veterans being f*cked with by a bunch of f*cking imbeciles. If it wasn’t for our brave heroes like Sergeant First Class Sean Gittens no one would have nice sh*t to begin with.

    To Sergeant First Class Gittens and your family: keep your head up, this country is so incredibly thankful for your sacrifice, even if some forget. There are those out there who understand what you are going through.

    As for you Knob Hill f*ckers: in all honesty you should be ashamed of yourselves. Try showing a little respect and some patriotism. Who knows it may help you pluck your heads from your asses.

    I am delighted that we have nominated these people for PCS to Douchebagistan…Ill be waiting for them with some PT belts and a first class ticket straight out the gate… lets see them try to pull some regulations on IED placements out there. I can see this going only 2 ways, horribly good (they stop the terrorists), the terrorists stop them (you get my point.

    SPC DJ out

    It is a godforsaken place where many of us have put their lives and families livelyhood on the line to preserve liberty and are treated like this in our own country.
    I have no doubt that these people would be on their hands and knees in, in their own defication and urine, beggin for their lives while some dumbass tango took everything from them, they thought they deserved!!!!!!!! And sadly, this would be the justice they deserve!

    They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety. ~Benjamin Franklin, Historical Review of Pennsylvania, 1759
