Fire Department Chief Denounces Displays of Patriotism as “Racist”

Things have changed a bit since September of 2001. Who could have imagined in those times not only that we would elect a pro-Islamic president, but that fire department personnel would be forbidden from displaying patriotic stickers?

Some firefighters at a west suburban [Chicago] fire department have been relieved of their duties, for refusing to remove patriotic flags from their lockers and helmets.

Maywood [Illinois] Fire Chief Craig Bronaugh says there’s a culture of racism in the department and issued [a] memo saying all decals and stickers, including American flags and military stickers, be removed from lockers and helmets.

One of the thought criminals in question is black; turns out blacks can be racist after all.

[T]he tension started with the chief ordering an American flag be removed from the inside of Fire Station 2. It was a new flag the firefighters had bought with their own money to replace the tattered one that had been there for three years.

When they weren’t told why, firefighters put American flags on their lockers.

Then came the memo.

When David Flowers Jr., the union president, wouldn’t take down the Marine decal on his locker, the same locker that was his father’s, a Maywood firefighter and Vietnam vet, he was relieved of duty and sent home.

Pushback forced Bronaugh to back down a little:

Firefighters may return to work and can keep their American flag stickers posted, Maywood Fire Chief Craig Bronaugh said, after he was the target of massive pressure from the public. However the firefighters say that they are still filing a hostile work grievance against the Chief.

Some firefighters told Top Right News that the Chief is still banning stickers such as for the branches of service in which they served, 9/11 remembrances, etc, and say many feel that Mayor Perkins should fire Bronaugh for making irresponsible and inflammatory statements alleging false “racism,” and retaliating against those displaying the American flag.

If you agree the Chief should GO, you can (respectfully) contact the Mayor of Maywood, IL, Edweena Perkins, here, or call 708-450-4486.

Shine a light on them and they tend to retreat back under the stove. But as soon as the public’s back is turned, they creep forward again.

Bronaugh is worried about racism.

    Ok, Edweena (good grief) be black.

    Anyway, just ANOTHER isolated incident. There is no PATTERN of black behavior. Just an endless series of ISOLATED incidents.

    As proof, please “shout out” about that really nice black guy you all know. Cuz, you know, exceptions disprove rules. IKAGO, IKAGO, IKAGO…

    Any doubts that she sees racism everywhere?

    Fire the chief, being back those exhibiting patriotic material.
    Plain and simple. This must be done immediately if we are going to send a message to those who would rather see this country in defeat.

    Craig Bronaugh should be fired, and should lose any pension he may have.

    Yep, it does appear the totalitarian state is very much alive and well in and around Chiraq. Or, could it be the fire chief never served and his pettiness is showing through?

    Getting this melanin enhanced, racist, grievance monger fired might not be the best thing. If he’s ousted, he’ll undoubtedly shriek, “RAAAAYYYYCISSS!” When the media and other racist grievance mongers, i.e. Sharpscum and Jackscoon, get whipped up into their simian frenzy, the taxpayers will wind up covering the inevitable settlement.

    Restraint, indeed.

    When a Fire Chief’s first concern is flag decals on lockers and not the safety of the public and the fire fighters themselves Then the leadership is flawed and must be replaced . The actual cause of this breakdown is obvious and for certain. Liberal thought and a race of people who cannot or will not stand on their own and be held accountable for their own actions. Until Liberal thought is removed, Black will always be the victim of racism. Racism is a word Liberals use when Liberal thought fails. It only truly exists in their minds.

    No wonder Bronaugh is worried about racism. He sees a racist every morning when he looks in the mirror.

    Referencing another story on this site, just imagine a douche bag like Bronaugh as your combat commander in Afghanistan. Elevated to that position because of his skin color and 100% aligned with people who don’t care if you get killed.

    affirmative action = recipe for disaster

    Karen Wright proves how ignorant she is. As a black person in a free country she ought to be ‘concerned’ about Barry as well.

    Karen Wright just proves what I have been saying for some time:
    Just because you are a minority does NOT MEAN you CANNOT be a RACIST.

    The rest of America needs to get a grip on this. Especially Liberals

    He is a totalitarian, flags or no.
