Veterans sue New Rochelle City Council
The ignorant liberals on the city council of New Rochelle, NY forbade local veterans groups from flying the “Gadsden Flag” at the local armory, which is owned by the city, because they claim that the flag is “too political”, referring to the current usage by the various “Tea Party” groups. Of course, this is because the city council is not familiar, nor are they interested in learning the flag’s actual history. It has been used by the US Marine Corps for centuries since the first Marines enlisted under the flag in Philadelphia in 1775.
The flag flew over the first US Naval commander-in-chief, Commodore Esek Hopkins, on the mainsail of his flagship that same year.
If “too political” is a reason to ban things, New Rochell should ban the city council.
According to the Washington Times, veterans groups in New Rochelle, are taking the city to court;
City officials contacted on Friday did not immediately comment about the suit, or the case, AP reported.
The lawsuit targets the mayor, the city manager and four council members, and seeks an injunction as well as unspecified damages.
