Firefighters Ordered to Remove Truck Flags The PIXPage Staff Berkeley firefighters are seeing red over an order to take American flags off their trucks. The flags began flying shortly after the terrorist attacks on September 11. The fire department says it ordered the removal because of an anti-war rally scheduled for Thursday. The assistant chief said safety could be compromised if protestors try to remove the flags and destroy them. Firefighters wouldn't talk to us on camera, but they said they were angry at the order. http://beta.kpix.com/news/local/2001/09/19/Firefighters_Ordered_to_Remove_Truck_Flags.html

Has anyone in Cali thought to counter protest this so called "peace" rally? We're seeing our own citizens protesting the deaths of people half way across the world that have not yet occured and they don't even seem to be able to shed a single tear for the almost 6,000 of their fellow americans who died on the 11th. I understand and respect their 1st ammendment rights to free speach but damnit all they're realy pissing me off to a level I've never before experienced One consolation, I heard that at a university somwhere on the west cost, one of the leading "Stalinist" professors started to speak at a memorial service and began to rant and rave about how "we deserved this" etc etc. The same old leftist psudo-intellectual, overly emotional ComIntern crap was getting shoveled, and the people there, although mostly liberals drove him off the stage because they were "here for the victims" not for his bullshit prothletising about how bad the US is. There are lines that you should never cross and he mis-read the crowd and just had to go there....

They didn't want to offend the protesters.

I know most firefighters wouldn't do this, but the ideal thing would be a strike for a few weeks. (berkley likes unions, so they'd have to support a strike, right?) Let the idiots see how safe they feel when they don't have firefighters to respond to fires, accidents, or medical emergencies.

How about the two firefighters in Florida that had the flag removed from their truck because they were "offended" by it. They refused to get in the truck until it was removed. Said that it represented oppresion. Now don't that beat all?

Sorry, but it is against Federal law for Firefighters or Police to strike. Now the "Blue Flu" on the other hand...

When they are in the bunkroom they had better sleep with one eye open. Yes, there is a lot of cameraderie in the Fire Station, but screw the whole department like that and make everyone look bad and it can become a brutal place to work.
