Gadsden Flag removed from NY Military Armory; Claimed It Is A Tea Party Symbol

Claiming, it is a Tea Party symbol, the City of New Rochelle, NY has removed the Gadsden from the city’s military armory. The City Manager Chuck Strome ordered the flag removed after receiving complaints from citizens that the flag is a Tea-Party symbol. The United Veterans Memorial and Patriotic Association of New Rochelle if fighting the decision. “Their outrageous decision to confiscate a cherished symbol of our War for Independence smacks of pure partisan politics,” said Richard Thompson, chief counsel of the Thomas More Law Center,” who will represent the Veterens, told World Net Daily. “Many Americans fought and died for our independence under that flag, and the law center will take available means to return the Gadsden flag back on the veterans’ flag pole. As one Revolutionary War hero said, “we have only just begun to fight.” According to the US Navy website, beginning Sept 11, 2002, all US Navy ships have flown the First Navy Jack flag. The flag used by the Continental Navy in 1775, consists of a rattlesnake superimposed across 13 alternating red and white stripes with the motto, “Don’t Tread On Me.” According to the site, Commodore Esek Hopkins used the First Navy Jack as a signal to engage the British in the American Revolution. The Jack in today’s fleet represents a historic reminder of the nation’s origin. According the Wikipedia, the Gadsden Flags’ history is: “The Gadsden flag is a historical American flag with a yellow field depicting a rattlesnake coiled and ready to strike. Positioned below the snake are the words “Don’t tread on me”. The flag was designed by and is named after American general and statesman Christopher Gadsden. It was also used by the Continental Marines as an early motto flag, along with the Moultrie Flag.” http://www.foxnews.com/us/2013/04/14/gadsden-flag-called-tea-party-symbol-removed-from-military-armory/

  1. Good riddance…. So tell me…. how does America feel about Conservatives now?
    Sounds like they hate them worse than we used to hate the Communists… In fact, the Conservative cause is probably the boogey man of today, as Marxism and communism were in the time of Reagan.. How does it feel to be perpetually wrong?

  2. America loves conservatives. It is a conservative nation. The plurality of people indentify themselves as conservatives.

  3. Kavips

    You don’t know right from wrong. The last on anybody should be taking advice from is Kavips.

  4. It is liberals who have no confidence in their beliefs. Liberals have to silence alternative views, because liberals know that their arguments will fail in any open debate or discussion.

  5. The Gadsden Flag is a historically significant piece of Americana. It only coincidentally became the Tea Party Symbol. For the city to remove the flag because of a few looney-left complaints.
    The looney-left never makes sense.

  6. In fact, the Conservative cause is probably the boogey man of today, as Marxism and communism were in the time of Reagan.. How does it feel to be perpetually wrong?

    Most GOP members of the US House of Reps are conservative- the majority party.

    The GOP holds 30 governorships, and most of them are ‘conservatives.’

    The GOP holds both houses in 27 state legislatures.

    The GOP holds total control (state house, senate, governor) in 24 states.

    Thus, in 24 states, the Socialist-Democrats have been completely rejected, and in 27 they are powerless. LOL.

    So, to say…

    In fact, the Conservative cause is probably the boogey man of today, as Marxism and communism were in the time of Reagan…

    …makes you sound like a typical low information voter, i.e., a Socialist-Democrat.
