Democrat storm troopers find Gadsden flag “offensive” order veterans: take it down and hand it over

 

By Kevin “Coach” Collins

Democrats love to flex their political muscles in the faces of anyone, but they take special pleasure in rubbing the noses of conservatives in the dirt. They are nasty lowlifes after all.

Recently the Democrats of the City Council of New Rochelle New York, a Big Apple bedroom community, decided that the United Veterans Memorial & Patriotic Association could not fly a Gadsden flag (known more widely as the “Don’t Tread On Me” flag) in front of the town’s armory. One of the five skunks who voted to take this action cried that the flag which is a symbol of pride to actual patriotic Americans was “offensive” to him.

In a surprisingly hateful and stupid display, even for a liberal Democrat, Council member Barry Fertel likened the Gadsden flag to the Confederate “Stars and Bars” battle flag and a Gay pride flag.  When veterans at the Council’s public hearing  said  American patriots died fighting under the Don’t Tread On Me flag during the Revolution and more recently during battles in Iraq and Afghanistan, Fertel replied, “People died fighting under the Confederate flag too.”    

When liberals are given power, laws they don’t like such as “theft under color of law” mean nothing.  Gleefully adding insult and illegality to their fiat the Council not only ordered the flag be taken down, it ordered that it be confiscated.

Before voting to order the flag be taken down each of the five liberal Democrats took a turn attacking the flag as a “symbol of the TEA Party.”

Drunk with the power of their 5 to 2 majority, the abuse of logic and patriotism continued with member Brian Sussman a local Democrat Party District Leader  likened the flag to the Nazi’s swastika, a Mickey Mouse flag and finally to simple graffiti.  Words cannot accurately describe the level of contempt people like this deserve. It is truly a disturbing example of what America has become under the psychopathic rule of the vicious Left.

If there is any good news in this story it is that the Thomas More Law Center, which is representing the veterans, is confident it can beat these thugs in court and get this ruling overturned.

An American patriot reveals Diane Feinstein to be an un-American hypocrite

Though “Coach is Right” rarely posts pieces not original with its staff writers, this letter from Marine Corporal Joshua Boston to California Senator Diane Feinstein concerning her proposed “assault weapons” ban must be the exception. For in just 200 words, Corporal Boston has captured both the essence of our nation’s existence and the courage which will be required of determined Americans if our nation is to endure.   

 

Senator Dianne Feinstein,

I will not register my weapons should this bill be passed, as I do not believe it is the government’s right to know what I own. Nor do I think it prudent to tell you what I own so that it may be taken from me by a group of people who enjoy armed protection yet decry me having the same a crime. You ma’am have overstepped a line that is not your domain. I am a Marine Corps Veteran of 8 years, and I will not have some woman who proclaims the evil of an inanimate object, yet carries one, tell me I may not have one.

I am not your subject. I am the man who keeps you free. I am not your servant. I am the person whom you serve. I am not your peasant. I am the flesh and blood of America.
I am the man who fought for my country. I am the man who learned. I am an American. You will not tell me that I must register my semi-automatic AR-15 because of the actions of some evil man.

I will not be disarmed to suit the fear that has been established by the media and your misinformation campaign against the American public.

We, the people, deserve better than you.
