Is the Gadsden Flag becoming tabboo?

The Warren Rhode Island Fire Department got in trouble Friday morning when they raised one of the nation’s oldest from one of three flagpoles they have at the Warren Town Common. They raised the Gadsden Flag.

Some RI Libs protested and the firemen were ordered to take it down.

“At first I thought it was a joke,” said Warren Fire Chief Al Galinelli. “The flag was put up because it’s a flag from the revolution and a lot of Warren guys fought in the revolution. It was only put up to memorialize them. Flying the flag does not mean we’re supporting any political party or movment.” See more here
