Firefighters Ordered To Remove American Flags From Trucks For This INSANE Reason…

A Rhode Island politician is under some serious fire after comments he made about the local fire department showing their patriotism by flying Old Glory from their trucks, and he deserves every last bit of it.

A group of firefighters at the Central Coventry Fire District in Rhode Island were proud to fly America’s colors from their trucks as they drove around town and answered their call of duty, but Fire District Board Chairman Fred Gralinski had a serious problem with it. In fact, he took such issue with the brave men and women displaying pride in their nation that he not only demanded the flags, along with any American flag decals, be stripped from the trucks, but that’s not the worst part.

According to WJAR, Gralinski was at a local meeting when he truly showed his ignorance to the town. After calling the firefighters “yahoos” for their patriotic displays, he likened them to the terrorist group ISIS and said their actions weren’t American.

“They look like a bunch of yahoos,” Gralinski said. “Like in the paper, like ISIS in Syria going to take over a city. I don’t think they need that big flag on the back of the truck. That’s not America to me. Those are a bunch of terrorists. So, I’m going to ask you to take the flag off the truck.”

Can you believe that? This IS America, you idiot, and that IS what we do!

Yes, Gralinski came under serious fire for his unpatriotic statements, and rightfully so. But rather than handle the issue like a man by fessing up and apologizing, he hired a public relations team to speak for him.

Through one of his spokesmen, Gralinski merely stated he used a poor choice of words, but didn’t apologize for comparing the firefighters to ISIS. No, instead he apologized for any perceived disrespect of Old Glory. And the worst part is that the flags still had to be removed from the trucks.

What a jerk.

Now, if the men and women who put their lives on the line for idiotic people like Gralinski want to display their patriotism, they have to get permission from the board to do so, according to Firefighters’ Union President David Gorman.

This is absolutely unbelievable. Who would have ever thought that flying an American flag in America would become so controversial?

Thanks, Democrats. YOU built this!
