Gadsden Flag BanishedThe city of New Rochelle, N.Y., has removed the historic Gadsden “Don’t Tread On Me” flag from a military armory, deeming the flag “too partisan” because it often is used by the tea party movement.

And in response, veterans groups have tapped the Thomas More Law Center to take up the fight.

It was after an official ceremony on March 21 at the New Rochelle Armory that a new American flag was unfurled to replace the previous weathered flag that flew at the location. Beneath the new American flag, the yellow Gadsden Flag was flown, as is common tradition on many military sites.

However, within a week of the ceremony, City Manager Chuck Strome ordered the Gadsden flag be taken down because of “unidentified complaints” that the flag was a symbol of the tea party movement.

Peter Parente, president of the United Veterans Memorial and Patriotic Association of New Rochelle, sent Strome links to the history of the flag so he decided to allow it to remain.

But the city council then stepped in, voting 5-2 to order the flag to be removed.

The five members who voted to uphold its removal were Democrats, while the two voting to reinstate the flag were Republicans.

That same day, the public works department removed the flag.

Now the flag fight is headed to court.

    They just don’t get it. It’s not about the tea party. It’s about getting tired of government taking away liberties and pissing on freedom.
    It’s about stating that you’re not gonna take the bull crap anymore!
    Any rational human being would not want to be tread upon!

      They do get, that’s why they took it down. They can’t let a symbol of freedom fly while they try to keep the sheeple dumbed down.

    It appears that anything that remotely represent freedom in this country will not be allowed until the traitors at the top are brought to trial for treason! And as far as voting them out ,it is foolish to think that is even possible!
