You have the right to be offended

But just because you think a symbol is hateful or racist, or otherwise offensive is no reason for the law to allow you to force others to not use it.

Fury as FDNY firefighters are forced to remove Stars and Stripes honoring 9/11 heroes after Democrat lawmaker branded it a ‘fascist symbol’ 

The ‘thin red line’ flag, which is a black-and-white American flag with a red line across the middle, is meant to show solidarity with firefighters who have fallen or been injured on the job.

The man reportedly called the flag a ‘fascist symbol’ and asked to know why it remained up.

I really don’t care that you find a flag or other symbol to be racist or hateful or intimidating…..I find the Black Lives Matter flag, and the LGBTQ flag, offensive…but I will support your right to fly it regardless because that is part of the freedoms we enjoy as US citizens.

People need to be told, at some point, to shut up and go home.

FDNY Deputy Chief Joseph Schiralli needs to be quietly allowed to find another job.

  1. Believe it or not, many fire departments around the country were told to remove the ACTUAL American flags from their engines for fear they “might offend someone…”

    As far as I’m concerned, they can BE offended. THE FLAG STAYS!!!
