The Navy also has a uniform patch with that flag in subdued and in color. Ran into some Navy types in Wal Mart in Fallon here in uniform with that patch. I want one! Or two or three color and subdued. The gal I talked to about it said it's a general service insignia. Not unit specific. Everybody has it. I LIKE IT!!

I'm surprised Republicans even care about this anymore. Is anyone a Tea Partier in 2019? Trump has treaded on all of those ideas.
Here is the thing, the Pepe and Mac Tonight WERE attacked by the left as soon as they notified people. Any remaining McDonald's with Mac removed them and the Peep creator sent out cease and desist orders. The Betsy Ross flag was talked about in 2016, Kaepernick however made it known to everyone. The Swastikas was regulated to Neo Nazis and the IKA groups. The Gadsden flag though I thought was known as a TEA Party icon but I don't know if people put two and two together.

No it was the Gadsden in the gold. I'm wondering if Pratt had it based on the First Navy Jack...

The words and sentiment are the same no matter what background color or pose of the timber rattler. I will not allow racists to co-op symbols and I will certainly stand up to those with their broad brushes denigrating millions of fellow Americans with cries of racism where none exists.

You are asking them to read and research instead of spouting the typical knee-jerk racist label. Thatís really asking a lot.....
