Government Ruling: Wearing “Don’t Tread On Me” Gadsden Flag Can Be Racist & “Racial Harassment”
The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has determined in a preliminary ruling that wearing clothing featuring the Gadsden Flag constitutes legally actionable racial harassment in the workplace. In short, wearing the Gadsden flag while at work can earn you the title of “racist”, earn you harassment charges, and cost you your job. The ideological witch hunt started back in 2014 when a black employee at a privately owned company filed a complaint with the EEOC when he saw a co-worker wearing a hat featuring the Gadsden flag and the words “Don’t tread on me.” The EEOC has decided to side with the over-sensitive employee, despite already admitting that the flag originated in a non-racial context and has been adopted by multiple non-racial political groups, countless companies and more, since it was created.
The ruling is a preliminary ruling and has not yet been made “official” but the preliminary ruling says that you can be charged with “racial harassment.” They have not indicated when an “official” ruling will be made and it is ongoing.
