Gadsden flag, called Tea Party symbol, removed from New York military armory
Fox News ^ | Published April 14, 2013 | Fox News

A group of New York veterans is preparing to march into court after a town ordered the Gadsden flag removed from a military armory.

The city of New Rochelle, N.Y., has removed the Gadsden “Don’t Tread on Me” flag from the New Rochelle Armory after the city council refused to let a veterans organization display the flag, World Net Daily reported.

The United Veterans Memorial and Patriotic Association of New Rochelle is fighting the decision, ordered by City Manager Chuck Strome after complaints that the flag is a symbol of the Tea Party movement, according to World Net Daily.

The complainers probably wouldn’t complain at all if a red hammer-and-sickle flag was flown instead.

This, like all similar opinions is based on graidiose arrogance, presumptuous authority and is informed by monumental stupidity. It is the very essence of fascism.

Like an unrelenting plague of locusts, destroying everything they come into contact with. They need eradication; total and complete.

Screw them: fly the flag and make the town take them to court to remove it.

It appears that a convent full of nuns have more balls than The United Veterans Memorial and Patriotic Association of New Rochelle.

For all we know, those organizations are liberal and hate the TEA Party. Pulling down the Gadsden Flag is, to them, showing spine. This is the People's Republic of New Yawk, isn't it?

If they can’t get it ordered-down, they’re going to cut it down and put up the hammer & sickle, or something as sickening and treasonous. It’s coming...

There’s a “list” of Domestic Terrorists that DHS maintains, which boggles the mind. And groups left off the list, which need summary-killing, IMO.

What's next?

I recall the days following 9/11/2001 and liberal callers to the several talk shows I listen to stating that they refuse to fly the Flag because it was "too Republican."

I recall also news items where some people were demanding that neighbors take down their American Flag because it was "too Republican."

I can’t believe the actual hate that lib-dem trash filth pols have for Vets.

Gimme 90secs inside a locked 8’x10’ room with each pol, and that’d change, rapidly.

So what? It’s a historical flag of this country. About when we were fighting tyranny and oppression for no representation.

Conservatives use the regular flag a lot too. We can use any of the historical flags and often do.

Once again, the simpletons didn’t know their history when they ordered that flag taken down. Alas however, they have thus addressed an issue which will be debated and eventually a new law enacted stating that the flag is no longer appropriate and must “NEVER BE FLOWN AGAIN!”

Damn the stupidity of these people.

This was posted two weeks ago. The rest of the story is a feud between the mayor and the veterans that goes back several years.

A lot more detail and a better article. Thanks for the link.

They would like to see the VietCong Flag or the Black Flag of the Taliban flying. The MSM has won—they have, with lies and smears, tarred the Tea Party as racists and neo-nazis. They used skillful propaganda to the point that a majority now believe this grand old symbol of a Tax Reform movement is a hate flag like the ‘Southern Cross’ battle flag of the defunct Confederacy (mistakenly called the Stars and Bars, and Flag of the Confederacy). Maybe its time for the Tea Party Conservatives to use a new flag—maybe the one designed by the people in the Whiskey Rebellion (another anti-Tax movement in the early years of the Republic).

That’s nice! One of my favorite flags is from the War of 1812, maybe a naval flag.
It’s black and has a skull and bones on it and the words “Don’t Tread On Me.”
Wish I could find it to post it. Yar, it makes a cully want to talk like a boucaneer!

“Monumental stupidity” pretty much describes ol’Chuck’s move——couldn’t have said it better myself. “Here’s your sign” Chuck baby. I’m pretty sure the next time we hear fron Chuckie he will have been schooled by the local folks about the flag. And who are the complaining dunderheads who don’t know the history of the flag -—they belong in the same class???
