AmericanFlags.com Supplies Thousands of Gadsden Flags for Tax Day Tea Party
“Don’t tread on me” becomes anti-tax rallying cry at nationwide protests
HAUPPAUGE, N.Y., April 15 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — April 15th is tax day and hundreds of thousands of Americans will mark the occasion by participating in “Tax Day Tea Party” protests in more than 2,100 communities nationwide. The Gadsden flag, emblazoned with the historic words “Don’t tread on me,” has become the official flag of the Tea Party movement and AmericanFlags.com has proudly supplied more than 5,000 Gadsden flags to protest participants.
The tax day protests, modeled after the Boston Tea Party, take aim against government spending, tax hikes and corporate bailouts. “The Gadsden flag with its vivid yellow field, coiled rattlesnake poised to strike and provocative slogan has always embodied the American spirit of determination and resolve,” said Dr. Jeffrey Reynolds, President/CEO of AmericanFlags.com. “We’ve always supported civic involvement and citizen activism and we are pleased to have become a primary supplier of Gadsden flags for event organizers. Gadsden flags have literally flown off our shelves in the last month.”
Happy April 15th all you tea partyers. Let’s go out and have our voices heard!!!!
